OSU was his previous favorite, but the Weber situation seems to have changed that. He's the #3 in-state prospect for the 2016 class.
"(Meyer) said he didn't know about (Drayton) leaving, that it was a last minute thing. The most important thing about my 'misleading' part was that I didn't really understand the process of recruiting behind Ohio State. I truly do now.
I understand the ambition Urban Meyer has, I understand the integrity of Urban Meyer and I understand that he's about the welfare of the child and the wholeness of what the athletes need at the university. He instilled in me that no child will be left behind in his program.
We did meet. We did talk. And he is the person I thought he was and the person I believe him to be. I believe our relationship is stronger now."
-Thomas Wilcher (cited)
I figured the board may be interested given how Coach Wilcher had previously blasted Urban Meyer about the Mike Weber/Stan Drayton situation:
"I think Urban Meyer will have to step his game up; we're going to have to talk," Wilcher told Detroit Sports 105.1 in a long interview. "He has come to my school and got the No. 1 athlete two years in a row. You cannot come over here, come up to the north, and walk out of here with your pockets full and not give us respect."
So I figure this is the place where people would appreciate this quick story...
Last night at football practice the coach had asked all the 10 yr old boys sitting around him what it takes to get people to "join the team" and "want to play together." My boy quickly pipes in, "well coach, I know that Coach Rich Rod from Michigan starts by making X amount of phone calls a week and then sends out the assistant coaches to make in home visits. Now sir, anyone with a clue knows they start with their pipeline states first."
I sat off to the side wondering where I could find a tissue. So excited about bringing him to his first gme at the Big House in a few weeks.
