I did not make this headline up
Just a wild guess, but maybe a last pitch to Pharoah Brown now that we missed on Sam Grant?
anyone from purdue ripe for da picken?
(snake oil sarcasim)^^^
I know he is supposed to announce on Friday, but Diamond is still my guess. It being the Central timezone would give a good reason why people are saying 8:00/7:00 am.
7 am in Michigan is 6 am central...
which is why if he would announce at 8 it would be 7 in MI.
Diamond sending his in early (before his announcement) was my first guess too, but Allen on scout specifically said its not diamond
Jaquay Williams...but I have absolutely nothing other than rumors to back that up.
What would we really have here if we all didn't comment on hopeless rumors?
For what it's worth, I'm also hopeless, and I also think it's Jaquay Williams.
Why wouldn't this be Jordan Diamond? This is not the Sam Webb (surprise) recruit. It's the Big News recruit. Is it because he never visited?
Diamond's not announcing until the 3rd.
Given that Scout and 247 are the ones reporting this, I don't think it's an attempt by Rivals to increase their traffic.
Rivals is saying the same thing.
what do your superpowers tell you??
I'm not going to make stuff up; I don't really know. We started kind of late as far as 2012 guys go, so we were never able to develop those contacts in time.
Don't sell yourself short. You guys are off to a great start, even with numerous 2012 recruits
whatever it is, it's real.
Sam Webb was the first to say it and he's on scout. It's been mentioned by all of the big 4 sites, so yea.
from what I've heard.
That would be nice!
It's a strong class either way, but a nice surprise will finish things off in style and help us regain some momentum going into the 2013 class.
I saw it on 247 that the NCAA won't allow it because it is considered a recruiting advantage or something like that.
It's either Jaquay Williams or Aaron Burbridge - same as Neo - just rumors.
If it is Burbridge...I would be beyond psyched! I absolutely think that kid is a monster - Manningham redux!
Aaron Burbridge will sign his LOI to play for Michigan State tomorrow. End of story.
Aquaman - they super powers are to kill the dreams of anyone who would dare to dream.
And to talk to fish apparently....
maybe after madaris signing, its arnett....
Pretty sure Arnett is already taking classes at MSU.
Is all MSU
How amazing would we think the coaches are if they pulled that off?! We can only dream right? (Saying this, I really like the WR pickups Michigan already has. But DGB, man that would be some icing on a hypothetical cake).
Yes, that would seem the likely candidate.
Now this may sound completely crazy but a few hints dropped on rivals...
One was that this was from "Left.......Field"
Another poster who is very well connected asking if anyone remembers John David Booty from USC.
For those that don't remember, Booty was a QB who ended up graduating HS a year early and enrolling at USC a year earlier than expected....
maybe its alluding to a three word name like dorial-green-beckham when he said john-david-booty... and word is he is supposedly with an SEC team... AND its from LEFT field.. missouri is to the left of us.
think about it... what a bigger selling point than to sell the number 1 wr, the possibility to wear the #1 michigan jersey, which for a decade, was the premier wr in football.... imagine hoke selling that beckham has a good shot to bring it back. see, all the other schools cannot offer this.
So you're suggesting Shane Morris is going to sign tomorrow? If so, that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard, even more so if true. Denard will be the QB next year so why would Shane waste a year? Not going to happen. They also said this isn't a Diggs level surprise, meaning no 5 star and definitely not Shane.
Both imply a baseball kid. Holy shit, it's Bubba Starling!!! Whooot
This must have been part of the Prince Fielder deal...Scott Boras is a crafty bastard.
That would be stupid for Shane to waste a year of eligibility.
He'd redshirt and be able to compete for a starting position in 2013 as opposed to redshirting in 2013 and trying to overtake the returning starter in 2014 or start as a true freshman in 2013. It seems like it might give him another year as a starter.
Against a guy with 3 years experience and two in the system as a RS freshman, where if he didn't get the job he'd go from a three year to a two year starter.
Unless this guy turns into the #1 recruit OVERALL in the Country, he's not beating out 3 years of college experience. How quickly we forget how highly ranked Devin was for the new hotness. Best case he comes in 2013, redshirts, learns for a year as a back up, then plays 3 years as a starter.
Wouldn't he play for 4 years as starter if he redshirts in 2013? Devin will be a junior next season, and the only season he'd be without Denard is 2013.
He gets the medical redshirt. If he doesn't then that would be the case.
Jaquay Williams, as long as he got some things straightened around earlier this evening in regards to his school qualifying stuff. That was from earlier this evening. Tom said he doesn't mind things being shared with other blogs, I'm guessing he means this one since he has such close ties! Must have gotten everything approved, mark it down for 7 a.m. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So you think it's Williams?
um.. did you even read the post? I'm tempted to call you a sparty troll because you can't read.
The post specifically said "this must stay here"
Dude seriously he specifically said keep your mouth shut on This one
Let's thrown some names up. I think its JaQay Williams as well
Said player plays for Michigan, coaches know what they're doing. Jake Ryan and frank Clark were pretty anti climactic.
