Willie Henry to Michigan
This gif never gets old
stop stealing my signature move.
Who says white people have no rhythm ...
I'm too old and out of touch . . . that doesn't look like anything I would watch myself. Where is that gif from?
Currently the #1 song on TRL hosted by Carson Daly.
from the late 80's to early 90's.
It's from Kids Incorporated. A early 80's Saturday morning kids show.
I loved that show.
Are we going to start calling him BWH a la BWC?
Sure, as soon as he gains 60 pounds.
hip hip hooray!!
im glad he is coming but a big win would be beating OSU, Stanford, or Iowa for a recruit, not illinois, eastern, and toledo. if he didnt choose us i would have to start questioning the recruiting tactics usedby hoke and co.
come on, you know that mentality is bullshit. take your job for example. if you did well at you job the first part of the year but sucked at it the second part of the year, would you really expect an excuse like "but look what i did a while ago and keep praising me for it and don't expect me to keep doing a good job the entire time". while hoke and co. have more to the job than recruiting, it is a big part of the job and the quality of that part of his job right now is not very high. no reason to fire the guy or anything like that but we can be disappointed at hoke's ability to get a commitment right now.
That might have been the dumbest thing I've ever read on here. If most of the kids Hoke is recruiting decide to verbal early, what in the hell is he supposed to do? I guess he should tell them no because some dumbass poster on mgblog thinks it means more to verbal later in the process. Dumbass!
Someone should have said these things to you last year. On second thought, I'm fairly certain half the board said these kinds of things to you last year. At least it's nice to have you on team optimism again.
C'mon man, give it a break.
If there was a poster as relentlessly positive as you are negative, he'd be singing praises about how Hoke & co. have beat OSU in the recruiting battles for Kalis, Strobel, AJ Williams, Joe Bolden, etc. etc. etc.....so what if they committed before Urban was around.
They're Ohio kids coming to Michigan that Ohio wanted.
Let it go and people will start responding better. At this point, people just downvote your posts to hide them so they don't have to read negativity.
Hoke has done amazingly well. He's referring to the last three or four days, which have been hellish. We lost important high 4 star recruits to Stanford, Ohio, Iowa, and now a three star to Oklahoma. No matter how things were, those consecutive goal line losses smart. A lot.
I'm not talking about the quality of the recruit here, just the quality of his offers. It wouldnt matter to me if we were battling OSU for a 2* recruit, only the fact that we haven't been able to beat the big schools for the players we wanted regardless of their overall rating. to me its a good pick up, but a win it is not.
We gotta get Diamond.
But OSU back off, he must not be that good.
Edit : I guess no one gets the sarcasm.
Na na na na nana na
FUCKEN A, we needed that.
We turn away tommy schutt? Jk idc
There may well be a very good answer, but it's a good question. Does Henry play OL too?
He did in High School, but projects as a DL at UofM.
Who knows? Maybe the staff thought that Pipkins wouldn't commit if Schutt had come and they really wanted Pipkins. There are a lot of different stories that one could tell.
yay! in hoke and co. i trust! stars dont mean a thing. if hoke and mattison see something in him. i believe. look what they did with a true 3* freshman linebacker morgan.
I think this is the right call. Henry may not be a blue chip prospect, but while it may be tempting to view these guys as all or nothing bets, it doesn't work that way. He fills a need, and banking 5 scholarships for next year would just have been too many.
He got the speed to be an excellent lineman, lets hope Michigan bulks this kid up to become a threat in a few years.
Yay for defensive line recruits! Position of need!
If so, that's even better!
Who wants to be that Urban now offers Mr. Henry?
All of your MgoPoints for all of mine!!! Deal is on!
So is the sky still falling or not?
With 3 defensive line coaches on staff, if there is one position where the coaches have freedom to take a sleeper or two it is DL in my opinion. Excited about this commit.
Great to have you Willie.
I love this kids upside! He could really contribute in a few years after redshirting!!!
Wiltfong is reporting that Henry's coach texted him saying that Henry didn't commit yet.
It's not official yet.
Will the pain ever end!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tom says he's announcing tomorrow...Hold me TomVH!
wow, sam just stole willie's annoucement.
Happy to have you on THE TEAM, THE TEAM, THE TEAM......
Edit: When it is official.
Ginn now confirmed his commitment
It's confirmed (via Ted Ginn) but it sounds like Willie didn't want to announce until tomorrow. Whoops.
Welcome Willie! This kid is a good athlete with a big frame. He's going to cause some damage in Big10 backfields.
Is cool with me.
maybe a combination of Mays and Aaron, but on the football field!
happy to have him. i've heard a lot about his motor, and he's got great size. hope to see him mauling braxton miller if the next 2 years.
Nice pick up adds to a great class.
When you're Michigan, 3 stars are nice consolation prizes - reminds you how highly regarded (and spoiled?) we are.
I am going to keep a mental note to compare the careers of him and Tommy Schutt when it is all said and done. Bucks are SO excited to have him and like to say we are wrong when we say the coaching staff cooled on him, even though UM and ND defnitely did.
Henry has a ton of upside, a few years down the road I see him being a good contributor.
After watching his film. Im very happy with this pick up. Worst case scenario is that he will end up being a solid player for depth but something tells me with a few years of training that we could see him starting next to Ondre. This kid is the definiton of the under the radar recruit that exceeds all the rankings.
Is confirmed. This guy is an amazing athlete- in addition to playing dt, ot, te in football, he plays as a starter on the varsity basket ball team, plus baseball and track. He runs a sub- 5.0 40 and is 6'3" 270. This guy is no slacker. He will end up being the best 3 star player in the 2012 class (closely followed by Jehu and Caleb). I predict he will be a starter by the end of his sophomore year and all B!G as a Junior.
