Exactly and as a Bulls fans I hate the organization for doing that with him and even with Deng when he was in the hospital with fluid leaking in his spine but they said he had a calf injury

This comment is so stupid. He was foolish to come back in the first place.

How is staukas doing in the NBA? He can't even start for the Sixers. Getting there is on thing but until we get players who are productive there it will hurt with attracting recruits.

I find the hysteria by the media and fan base with regard to how Michigan is recruiting to be mind blowing. One of the reasons Michigan is being attacked for it actions is not because media find it wrong (they know it's done and don't have a problem with it) it's because Michigan has held this "we are better than that attitude" against the rest of college football and now they have something to pick at.

If that is what he wanted to do they why announce a commitment so early? Just wait and then announce.

If Swenson and Weaver game him ammunition then he was looking for an out if he chooses to decommitt. I mean we basically wouldn't let a top 100 OG Terrence Davis commit because we didn't want another OG in the class and needed tackles. I mean that should show Onwenu his spot was safe. Either way, he will make a decision for himself whatever the reasoning.

Wasn't OU his only official visit? Why did he EVER visit M officially as a commit or NW or any other school for that matter?

All reports were he didn't progress well over the last two years and then not wanting to come to a Michigan camp is telling as well. All these offers you speak of are late offers after he decommitted. So he could be a backup plan for staffs if they strike out with their top targets. Also like a poster said, OK is his first official visit which is odd. I wonder why he hasn't taken any officials not even to Michigan when he was committed.

So then if a kid signs FA papers with the school, they can't turn around and say we don't have a scholarship for you? If that's the case I would sign FA papers with every school I'm considering.

His offers shouldn't dictate what the staff think of Swenson.

Maybe it's my experience but I was always taught to have a backup plan and the kids I have worked with I have given them the same advice.
|1 week 6 days ago||Kid vs. Middle aged men paid millions to manipulate them||
The lens in which you are looking at this through is faulty because you are speaking as if the kids are making decisions without any input from other adults. Having a backup plan is stressed to any kid looking to go to college. Guidance Counselors and parents stress to kid to have your "dream school, the schools you know you can get into and schools you are 50/50 about getting into" for a reason. If a kid doesn't have a back up plan it's the adults in his life that are at fault not a coach who didn't give him enough notice to seek one.

why? Michigan is not recruiting the #1 player in the 2017 class. What's good for one program may not be for another.

um two of his players just got accepted to Stanford, he should be happy about that. That has nothing to do with him applying for a job at Michigan.

I hope he communicated with Harbaugh month ago that if he got accepted to Stanford he would flip. /s
Good job young man seizing the opportunity of getting into your top choice.

Well he's listed a committing today to Stanford on 247

Well that's exactly why Michigan is hiring him well and probably because Harbaugh wants him /s

interesting that he says in the article that he only wants to do a year here. also that the principal of another hs in Maryland said he would take over the program some time in the future.

Harbaugh wanted him but couldn't offer him an EE spot and UMD could. Plus he knows Durkin. This make perfect sense.

How dare he leave Rutgers high and dry a week from signing day with no other options for Rutgers to chose from /s

Its interesting that people are ok with committable vs non committable offers yet have an issue with some of the coaching staffs practices. Look at it this way: the offers of the decommits became non committable. Also I think maybe schools should be allowed to send out written offers as early as a recruits junior year. This may help with understanding for the recruit. Waiting until August 1st of senior year for the written offer seems late especially if their are conditions to meet.

You can be offered a job verbally but it not yours until you receive an offer letter and sign it. Same with recruiting. All offers are verbal until you receive your wriiten offer which you can can't receive until August 1at of your senior year. And even then your spot is not guaranteed until you meet all conditions of the offer (academics, etc) and sign the papers

Well a verbal offer is like an interview imo. nothing is official until you receive the written offer.

I don't believe anyone is flawless but that extends to all involved.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I'm not talking in general. Offers are confirmed||
I'm not talking in general. Offers are confirmed by players and we will not know if they are committable or not unless the player says so. That's just how it is. Nobody is calling anybody a liar. We can only here from on side.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Right. That's like not contacting a perspective||
Right. That's like not contacting a perspective employer after not hearing from them for a week after the second interview. You reach out to find out what's going on

how do know they were? A player can call themselves a commit if they want. The coach can't say he's not lol
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Also if you haven't heard from the staff in a long||
Also if you haven't heard from the staff in a long time, why you wait until now to decommit unless you trying to hold a spot or continue bro raise your profile none of which I have a problem ftom a player perspective.

It may not sound good from him but he was taking visits for a reason. If I'm Harbaugh in the future I'm not accepting commits from recruits you have conditions on (I.e come to camp, I want to see how you do your senior year, etc)

I thought we weren't getting another commit because of the Swenson situation /s
