Seems to be in line with his scouting reports, a good player who lacks athleticism and is taller than most other human beings on the planet
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Rivals has him in the class||
Rivals has him in the class of 2017. Lists him at 6'4 200lbs. Yes, please.
|23 weeks 11 hours ago||Although it seems weird, with||
Although it seems weird, with how basketball players compete nationally at such a young age it is not outrageous to rank basketball players at young ages. Rankings are usually based on skill level over physical traits. Per usual, the rankings should be taken with grains of salt. I remember Damon Harges being the number one ranked 6th grader in the nation a few years back. Now as a high school freshman he has thus far gotten fars from small D1 programs, while some of his peers have received big program interest.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||That could work out well,||
That could work out well, make Durkin Co-DC & ST Coordinator, while Mattison is Co-DC and overlooking either the DL or LBs. In Harbaugh we trust.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||The overall team speed of OSU||
The overall team speed of OSU is ridiculous. It isn't just the skill position guys on offense, but the closing speed of their defenders is nuts. When Jones gets some time he is a pretty solid passer. He's a load to bring down, looked like a poor man's Cam Newton to me.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||Another recruiting find by||
Another recruiting find by Beilein. I don't remember what schools were Dawkins, but there weren't many notables. Kid is a pretty good athlete and caught fire. Oh yeah. Harbaugh.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||Was this really necessary?||
Was this really necessary?
|30 weeks 4 days ago||This is what I was going to||
This is what I was going to say. Tulsa, much like Houston, is a great program for an up-and-comer to prove himself. I think Montgomery will be able to win a lot of games and move on to a power 5 program in 3 years.
|31 weeks 17 hours ago||Anyone think Schiano should||
Anyone think Schiano should just stay in the NFL as a DC, then work his way back up?
|49 weeks 6 days ago||FWIW, their number one||
FWIW, their number one player, Dylan Moses, barely saw any playing time his freshman year due to upperclassmen and injuries. Just goes to show the weakness of these rankings thus far.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Goes to the same high school||
Goes to the same high school as Joshua Ross. Another person to be in his year along with James.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Alex Kozan.. he ended up||
Alex Kozan.. he ended up going to Auburn and was a starter for them this season. Looks like he made a good decision.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||I hate to say it you guys....||
I hate to say it you guys.... but why the heck does anyone care as long as they are all in by the end of the day?
|1 year 27 weeks ago||While we're discussing the||
While we're discussing the OL.. anyone want to throw i their projected OL?
Mine is Magnusson-Bosch-Glasgow-Kalis-Braden
|1 year 28 weeks ago||They should, the man is||
They should, the man is overdue for a head coach job and Louisville is a solid one, better than the Uconn job he turned down. I see this one going to Petrino though. WKU has apparently already interviewed his OC as a replacement.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Pretty sure Bars projects to||
Pretty sure Bars projects to RT. His dad played for the Irish anyway, don't think he's flipping.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Bigger hire than the||
Bigger hire than the previously rumored Lembo, good for Uconn. Diaco could be a good one.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Boise's OC during the Kellen||
Boise's OC during the Kellen Moore years, spent a couple of years at Texas as co-OC with Applewhite and this past season as head coach of Arkansas State. Arkansas State is the big loser here, Harin is the 3rd guy in a row (Freeze & Malzahn before him) to leave after 1 season. I guess to get the best candidate possible they can market the position as a platform for better jobs.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Word is that another new||
Word is that another new contract with a pay raise has been sitting on Saban's desk since last Friday and Bama officials are starting to get uneasy. To further speculate, I thnik Smary takes over if Saban bolts, keeping pretty much the entire recruiting class intact.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||What makes you so sure? He||
What makes you so sure? He had been on Florida's staff for a while and still got passed over for the head job by Muschamp, who had no big-time coaching experience himself. He's doing good things at Louisville, plus they are moving to the ACC.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||In that case, I think it's||
In that case, I think it's the perfect time for him to become the RB coach here. Jackson has had a long, much appreciated career here, but it is time to move on. Hart would also be the perfect coach for the power backs Michigan has been bringing in.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||After they beat us in that||
After they beat us in that one they were named Nat'l Champs... they may have been something at stake playing spoiler...
|1 year 33 weeks ago||From the looks of it McDowell||
From the looks of it McDowell is the only guy in the top 250 left that we are after and he appears to be far from a sure thing. Would be nice to reel him in though because this will be the lowest rated class Hoke has had to himself here, well according to rivals.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||This Williams kid has some||
This Williams kid has some size to him, could have potential. This Hand decision is going to hurt for a long time though.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||I don't think you can even||
I don't think you can even compare the two. Will Campbell was ridiculously strong for a high school kid, and this was spotlighted in camps. His high school game production never matched his camp results.
Da'shawn Hand was creating havoc as a triple teamed defensive tackle. I don't expect to see Hand decommit, only to recommit, and dance around on national tv either. There are no guarantees in sports, but Hand's floor is all-B1G. Write it in pen.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Hmmm as always I trust the||
Hmmm as always I trust the coaches, but it just seemed like this staff has been looking for taller guys to play safety while Kinnel is more T. Gordon sized. If tht 4.4 reported on 247 is legit though... then Mr. Kinnel come on down!!
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Word on the street is that||
Word on the street is that Curtis Samuel will being committing to Ohio and it could as soon as tomorrow, he's more of a Dontre Wilson type, but nonetheless a pretty darn good consolation prize.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Morris Toussaint, Green,||
Toussaint, Green, Rawls, Hayes, Johnson, Smith redshirts
Kerridge, Houma, Shallman... but I don't mthink Shallman is purely a FB
Braden without a doubt
Miller to start the year, but if he struggles they'll give Glasgow a shot..... and I think if they both struggle and Kugler is playign well in practice they give the job to him
Heitzman, and I actually think he'll be pretty solid there
Beyer, but it'll be more of a platoon
|1 year 50 weeks ago||One thing I'm surprised||
One thing I'm surprised hasn't been mentioned is the center battle, and after this small smaple of evidence I must say that I don't think Graham Glasgow is forcing his way into the competition, it's more like Jack Miller is letting him. Neither particularly impressed me and I might even give the nod to Glasgow because he's bigger.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Les doesn't just offer||
Les doesn't just offer committed kids for his own health, he saw something in this kid. I actually like this commitment. I really do think that Michigan greats deserve a bone thrown their way and have one of their sons offered a scholly here. Here's your bone Johnny. Jared and Winovich will battle for the SAM job, unless that is certainly where McCray ends up.
