$$ material on scout, so no can post. But it will be out soon enough. Not one of the top-top guys, but a solid player.
LIST OF WWE PERSONNEL?!?
Is it a double-secret, silent commitment?
It is until user k06 confirms it.
ldoublee, I'm probably stating the obvious here, but Scout cannot keep you from naming a fact, despite its subscription agreement. You have every right to say who the new commit is because it is a fact, even if you got this information off of Scout's website.
It's both true and helpful. Y'all are jerks!
Your posited gentlemen's agreement is just as fictional as Joe Tiller's.
Reporting a fact and linking to a premium article is not ripping someone off. It's called the Internet.
they should learn to play nicely with each other
Super Secret Squirrel stuff I guess.......
you can't triple stamp a double stamp
bleedingblue for making me laugh very hard at work! you can't triple stamp a double stamp haaa love it
given the front page is Ray Vinopal... i don't think it's secret
If its Vinopal, I'll admit I'm a little surprised. We have very few if any spots left and a lot of higher rated names on the board. I know, I know... ratings aren't everything, but I think we'd rather wait on Beachum, Parker, Hankins, etc.
scout is doing a liveblog thing or something for vinopal and the article is behind a pay-wall. i don't have a scout subscription but it seems to be that way, especially with the OPs comment
Agreed. However, if he is good enough for the coaches to offer, he likely has some big upside.
The logic that "if the coaches offered him, he must be good" only holds if you believe in the infallability of the coaching staff.
Personally (without knowing anything about this particular kid), I would certainly think it's possible that the staff has the potential to f up.
we have to eventually learn to trust the coaches even if this seems odd
as if this wasn't obvious given the quote that the coaches will tell him when we're filling up. well, ray, we're filling up so come on down.
Was offered a couple of months back.
According to Scout... he's a 2*, #144, safety.
Good thing no one on this board cares about recruiting ratings
At least he plays defense.
actually took Michigan's team ranking down one spot from 16 to 17. Good thing we don't care about that either. Uhhhhh.
Still shows Michigan with 21 commits, so Vinopal isn't figured in yet. It's more likely someone jumped past Michigan with a commit of their own.
the sky is falling...
the guru recruiting ranking has dropped by one...
That's precisely the issue surrounding the program, those coaches haven't renewed their Rivals subscriptions. Well, hell, I can donate that to the program. Would fix everything.
will not be pleased.
5'11 185 lb Safety who allegedly runs in the 4.4 range
Here's the kid's video
untrained eye, blah blah...that kid looks like he has really good technique and has serious ball skills. Tons of INT's on there. Looks like a smart player and one tough SOB. Very quick, but I worry about his top end speed as it looks like his legs are pretty short.
We could use a guy with good technique and ball skills. Sure it would be nice if he were faster, but if he's in proper position to begin with he won't have to close so much ground to make the plays.
he seemed fast enough to me. I also like how he shot up through the gaps on run support and stuck the tackles. He ran plenty of routes for guys he was defending too, and I liked his ball skills...
He'd be an upgrade at safety from this season imo! (I know, this isn't saying much...)
I don't put a whole lot of stock in the 40 times that these sites give out, but the only one mentioned so far was a 4.4 40, whic I know is likely fake but at least says he must be quite fast.
Also, short legs does not = slow.
For ex, see: Lionel Messi.
Is this video from his senior year or junior?
I've seen more exciting hits in the kids first 10 seconds of his film than I did all year watching UMs defense. Seriously, I want a safety out there that is going to punish some WRs.
I'm not very pleased with all of the bigger names that are still on the board.
that a DB committment in the hand is worth two in the bush (or on the Board).
If it's worth two on the board, then that means we'll only have one scholarship left right?
Derrick Rose took my SAT.
or a likely Stevie Brown if he comes to Michigan. Does this development likely lend some input as to Furman's decision? Hmm.
My understanding is that Furman is coming in as a LB, either at SLB or WLB.
IMO - Furman is a Mouton-type recruit who comes in as a SS that will be used as either the S.Brown SLB or, probably, the Mouton ILB (moreso a WLB). Probably a red-shirt to learn the position and gain 10-20 lbs.
no way he moves back to safety. He already said in one article that he would have to learn to cover to move to LB as he has no experience at it. Moving him to safety would make no sense.
They say he's slotted to come in at Sam, Stevie Brown's position. Despite his inexperience at coverage, he'd be coached by GERG, so I'm optimistic there. Shoot, Roh played a ball in the air better than everyone on the team outside of DWar, so.... Besides a guy who runs a 4.37 40 and a 4.41 shuttle would be wasted at Will. I think his skill set is best suited at Sam.
This makes the can-we-enroll-more-than-25-players-or-not issue all the more interesting.
I think we might see something I don't remember every seeing at Michigan, greyshirts.
intersting and a welcome addition, I think.
What about that long snapper from LV that took forever got get his LOI in. That was a greyshirt wasn't it?
Carr "grayshirted" a couple of guys. I remember Joey Sarantos being a grayshirt.
