Peppers at 10, which seems low.

I think he was referencing the UCLA, Texas and Oklahoma series as the "latter three" that'd be a bad idea to cancel. I think the problem with swapping out either VT or Wash is that then you have a nine game conference schedule plus two potentially tough OOC games, not that those programs are wildly popular, etc.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I can imagine him playing NT||
but I am having a tough time imagining a guy whose primary challenge seems to be endurance playing on both sides of the ball. Hopefully he can get his weight down a bit and get in great game shape, but I think the upside for him is either Great OG, or Great NT, not moonlighting in all kinds of situations.

This post notes that Mason was one of 247's top performers on defense and references in that bullet that he won MVP honors, though without a link:
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Great pickup!||
Does anyone know if we're still on commit watch for the other half of Allen Trieu's "Commit Watch x2," or is it safe to unbuckle?
|16 weeks 5 days ago||It's||
It's at http://247sports.com/Player/Chase-Lasater-90807. Pretty thin so far, probably because Michigan was the first big offer.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||I feel like there is a Jedi||
I feel like there is a Jedi Mind Tricks thing going on, where if enough people insist that Michigan may not be in, that creates a will that they may not actually make it. This is a team whose resume is not just better than most of the other bubble teams, it is much, much better. Monmouth is a particularly absurd example, but if you look at these other bubble teams, Michigan's resume is at a simply different level.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Look at the other bubble||
Look at the other bubble teams (although I don't think Michigan is a bubble team at this point, it's more a question of seeding at this point)--Monmouth has lost to Canisius, Army, Manhattan, and twice to Iona. Their resume is hot garbage on a stick. N.C. State and Clemson both blew Pitt out of the gym.
Michigan's resume is just plain better than the teams that people like Bilas and Lunardi have in over them.

Per Jerry Palm: https://twitter.com/jppalmCBS/status/706249789130706944, so it may not end up hurting after all.

|25 weeks 17 hours ago||He appears to be a PWO there||
He appears to be a PWO there also because 247 lists him as a PSU commit but does not list him as having an offer there. I assume that it is in some way related to the quasi-hello post about Peter Bush a couple of days ago (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/pwo-athqb-peter-bush-newport-beach-ca), but I didn't include it in the post because 1) that's just my speculation rather than based off of any information, and 2) I didn't want to generate more freak-out about recruiting tactics when there's no reason to believe anything bad happened.
|25 weeks 23 hours ago||Is Ostell Martin a possible PWO?||
Looks like he has an offer from Indiana State (https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/maple/164724), but that's the only one I can find. Would be great to get another big body for the OL while also continuing to strengthen the Cass Tech pipeline.

Are you really bragging on a sports blog about having won an elementary school spelling bee?
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Welcome Tyler!||
Looks like another good pickup.
Cochran apparently had an offer from Air Force and a PWO offer from Notre Dame, per http://www.thedzone.net/2015/04/tyler-cochran-orchard-lake-st-marys-s.html. Also a high academic kid, as he was also considering Penn and Brown, among others.
Seems like he'll definitely be a good depth add, at the least.
|26 weeks 13 hours ago||Having all that info in one place||
really does make TTB a useful place for finding how recruits' paths have moved forward, etc.
|26 weeks 14 hours ago||Did not mean that in a negative way.||
Actually quite the opposite. My point was that he apparently was good enough to have a comittable B1G offer, except that Northwestern then ran out of room. Just goes to show how high quality a pickup this is.
|26 weeks 15 hours ago||Outstanding pickup!||
A little more context: this article (http://pilotonline.com/sports/college/old-dominion/odu-adds-bulk-to-clas...) seems to imply that the Northwestern offer was commitable, but then someone stole his spot.
Also in that article, a Scout regional analyst calls him an "absolute steal" for ODU.
Looks like he camped at Michigan both last summer (http://touchthebanner.blogspot.com/2015/06/2015-michigan-summer-camp-par...) and in 2014 (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/recruiting-insider/wp/2014/08/15/201...).

Other than the one punt he hit against Central in 2013 that almost reached Space Emperor heights. That was one of the best punts I've seen, to the point where I still remember it 2.5 years later.

Congrats fellas! Go Blue!
|31 weeks 2 days ago||BC Recruits||
For anyone wondering (as I was), BC currently has 19 commits, all 3-stars or fewer.
The best player in the class appears to be an OLB from OH named Ethan Tucky, whose best offers are from Iowa and Wisconsin. The second best player is a Connecticut TE named Scooter Harrington, who has offers from Wisconsin, N.C. State and Pitt.
So, given the need to fill slots at TE and LB, perhaps these guys become backup plans if the current offers don't pan out.

|41 weeks 5 days ago||This is the definition of arguing about semantics.||
Forcing someone to move outside of the country to find employment is just ridiculous.
These are people with an extremely high level of talent in an extremely marketable field, but because of the NFL's monopoly system, they have to either 1) work without payment for an NCAA team, 2) work for minimal (or more likely zero) payment for a semi-pro team, or 3) self-deport..to be paid very little money well below the market rate. Not for nothing, choosing either of the latter two options would be devastating to your future potential earnings.
There's no realistic option to get paid and it's absurd to pretend there is.
|41 weeks 6 days ago||This is 100% incorrect||
The NFL bars players from entering the draft until they are three years out of high school, so you cannot go make money right away. Your only realistic option to play football (absent doing something like Alex Swieca did by going to play in Israel) is to play in college for largely just in-kind compensation.

The original comment that I replied to was deleted, so I'll just say that I agree with TruBluMich.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||So your basis||
is the generic 2-stars that Rivals gives players they haven't even scouted yet? That just proves Magnus's point--when they actually get more heavily scouted, their ratings will go up (as they already have for the services who've scouted them).
|1 year 5 weeks ago||According to the 247 composite,||
this is the 2nd 2-star in the class, along with Weaver (http://michigan.247sports.com/Season/2016-Football/Commits). Enis, Richardson, Davis, Johnson, and McKeon are 3-stars.
Meanwhile, there are 6 4-stars in the class.
So, if Harbaugh can manage to grab one more 4-star, that'll mean your minimum of 7, and frankly it's hard to imagine not getting at least 1-2 more 4-stars.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Kentucky missed the tourney in 2013||
The same year Michigan made the national title game. I don't know why people have forgotten this so suddenly.
This year obviously hasn't gone how we wanted, but given the circumstances, it's not that surprising that this is the year that the team hit a bump in the road.

For what that's worth (which may not be very much, given that he may have heard about the same commit through a different channel):
@jcshurburtt Is this related to Jay Harbaugh's tweet? Do you know who it is?
@ccrowder22 Not Twitter related.
