It's about time...
Updated top247: Shane Morris 5-star
Link isn't working..
Thanks. It should work now.
Good stuff. Thanks for the post. Shane is a baller
Great to see the recognition finally. Come on Rivals... (Chris Berman voice)
Yes this means he's really good now!
Marshall took a big hit. All the way from a 5 star to #80.
Obviously different evaluators evaluate differently, but I thought I had read some rave reviews about Marhall being the real deal after The Opening. I wonder what 247 saw/didn't see that caused such a big drop.
You're confusing with Jaylon Smith, the ND LB commit, not Marshall the Ohio commit.
Based on what all the analysts said about Treadwell, I think he might get a slight bump. Right now he sits at #71 overall and #5 WR.
it's still only recruiting rankings. I'm glad he is getting his shine. I just hope that he lives up to that hype on the field.
This great 2013 class has a lot to do with 6 star Sugar Shane.
that pushed him over the edge?
They just updated the list last week, I think. It seems odd to bump kids up and down this far based on a camp without pads, a pass rush, a true playbook, etc. I'm glad Morris got bumped up...but these moves are kind of arbitrary. Camps are overrated.
Some say ratings are overrated. Maybe it's all overrated but we shall bask in it and it's infinite glory until the season begins.
ESPN updates tomorrow as well don't they?, though I doublt we'll be seeing him hit 5 star status there.
Yeah, much better to base your analysis on Shane when he goes against 5'6", 5.2 40 yard dash CB's who won't be playing college ball anywhere, but hey, they have pads on. Must be legit.
It's a legit argument.
You put Jordan Kovacs in a camp, he probably gets schooled.
But I'll take Jordan Kovacs over a lot of those campers when it comes to real game situations.
I'm not saying they're useless, just overrated.
the best way to put it. Shane will not see more competitive talent in one setting than he did in the Opening. But your point of it being just a camp is the obvious draw back. No pads. No 270-280lb DE crashing down on him. All that being said he has definitely carried his own weight and then some this summer. Congrats to him.
By the way, I feel compelled to remind you of this:
the Kinetic King?
I really hope there are no 5'6" corners who run 5.2 40s starting on a varsity team.
I'm from a pretty tiny town. We pretty much have to put kids out there like that. Maybe not quite that slow, but you know what i mean
my schools varsity team went for 2 after every TD because nobody knew how to kick, or maybe it was they didnt have a long snapper, either way, never saw a fg or extra point. take that as we had 5'6" 5.2 second corners also
but is Shane Morris gettin more hype than Drew Henson got?
Winner Drew Henson.
DREW HENSON, Player of the Year - Infield, Brighton, Mich.
1998 statistics: Set national career records for RBI (290), runs (250), HR (70) and grand slams (10). Batted .527 for four years with 66 doubles, 129 walks and 42 stolen bases in 43 tries. Struck out 48 times in 488 at-bats. As senior batted .605 with 83 runs, 83 RBI, 18 doubles, 22 HR, 47 walks, 17-for-17 in stolen bases and just nine strikeouts.
College signed with: Michigan
Team drafted by: New York Yankees, third round.
due to the overall scope of the internet nowadays. I just remember reading about Henson in the paper. Huge baseball prospect (shattered alot of records) and huge QB prospect. I think hype is what it is so with the broad coverage today I would say Shane gets the nod.
Shane is about Henne level hype. While there may be more people talking up Shane because of the internet, people following recruiting, etc, Henson was considered pretty much universally as a top 5 recruit IIRC.
Yeah, Henson was more well known because he was both a top football prospect and a top baseball prospect. Accounting for "inflation" in recruiting coverage, I think Henson would have been perhaps the most talked about recruit in the country that year. I can't even think of a comparable player, really, who has had such upside in two sports.
as someone that played against Henson multiple times in a couple sports...He was a beast on the basketball court too. Pretty fluid & mobile for someone 6'3 225lbs. Could have easily played D1 in hoops somewhere. The local hype around him was insane & he was a cocky son ofa bia too. These were days of newspaper & he was hyped nationally as hitting more homeruns for his career than anybody in history of HS baseball, top football recruit, etc.
One newspaper article I read at the time referenced him as "God."
And to think that Henne was only the 4th highest QB in that class
Which just shows how arbitrary it all is.
What I don't get is who they had in front of him....ok, sure I remember Bomar being considered all everything, so that doesn't shock. But I don't remember anyone considering Morelli a better prospect...including Penn State, who wanted Henne first, and only went to steal Morelli from Pitt after Henne picked Michigan. I mean, he was highly ranked, but I don't recall most thinking Penn State got the better recruit. Of course, reality and time proved that to be the case anyway.
1998 was a hell of a class. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/college/recruiting/news/1998/0...
That was interesting to read, but they called us "big blue."
Curious. Do you guys think Shane starts in 2013?
I dont think we will have the depth to redshirt him, but I'd have to go with Gardner or Bellomy to start. I'm very anti-Garder at QB, so hoping Bellomy continues to show improvement.
I thought I read on here that Gardner played WR this spring is that true?
He tooks reps at WR, but Borges has said numerous times that Gardner IS a qb. I'm hoping he does make that transition to WR this year though.
Seems like he could be a good WR. 6'4" 4.6 40. QBs usually have good hands. At the very least he could be a redzone target.
No, I don't think he will.
Who then? Bellomy or Gardner? Personally I'd just go with Shane and have growing pains early but eventually be a beast. I kinda want ND to do that with Kiel.
Or let him have a fifth year? Just saying...
Than likely in the best interest for both Michigan and Morris if he isn't the starter. Not a knock against him...
5th star means more than Shawn Crable's did.
didn't Shawn Crable set a school TFL record and make multiple all big10 teams?
Crable was an awesome linebacker for Michigan (sans late hit on Troy Smith). High energy TFL beast.
Shane morris' fifth star means as much as chad hennes did
So he leaves early for the Yankees?
Why don't I have the option to moderate as "wrong"?
Henne, Henson, what's the difference?
Well, they did have the same number....
A sweet see through mesh uni
What was wrong with Crable outside of his infamous bonehead play?
Which infamous bonehead play are you talking about?
Of course it's hard to see late hits on Ohio through maize colored glasses.
Oh, I meant which one. That one, or the time he decided not to block the guy inside of him on FG protection, or....
Everyone keeps saying they read about Drew Henson in Newspapers... What the hell is a Newspaper???
