That's just off the top of my head l, I'm sure there are plenty each cycle who play both sports

Jd spielman from Minnesota was committed to Ohio state for lacrosse before some football offers came in and he opened his recruitment up to both places. Also sam Hubbard played both is hs and was committed elsewhere for lacrosse before he chose Ohio state for football where I think he played both for a little while.

I would assume he would be a safety considering he was a safety coming out of high school, a safety in JUCO and a safety while at Auburn. The big thing in his wanting to transfer is the fact that in the new defense at Auburn they were asking him to bulk up and move to a more linebacker role and that wasn't even going to guaruntee him the playing time that he wanted

he is a 3* due to the fact that he put up such good numbers against a very low level of competition from most reports. Schools didnt really start to realize how good a prospect he was till he started running legit times like this thread is talking about, realizing that it wasnt that he was just fast and all the guys he plays against are slow its that he is FAST and the guys he plays against just dont really stand a chance.

that is happening at kentucky to the brand new dodge challenger Devin Booker just so happens to drive along with about 6 other teammates
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Like two facts I learned on||
Like two facts I learned on twitter the other day, his dad ( who is apparently very weathly) has been making donations to kentucky recently to their "recruiting department", and the other that he was given a 2015 dodge challenger for being part the undefeated regular season team...Just some things that were stated on twitter yesterday, not necessarily true by any means
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I have been reading this site||
I have been reading this site for years, and it is painful to sit here and see some of the hate these people on here share about Michigan when I myself have loved the university and its teams since I was little. I mean I get as a fan that the past couple years have been rough but that gives nobody the right to bash a kid for choosing a school when he was offered a scholarship.

this is the wrong thread, because it doesntg matter whet trye says, or what caris decides, b ecaus ethis is a football commit and not a asketball commit.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Keith Washington was an under||
Keith Washington was an under the radar kinda guy too, whom Harbaugh took a look at late in the process, offered and then accepted his commitment. Harbaugh knows what he is doing and will take guys who want to play for him and want to compete for their spot each and every day.

Commented on the wrong thing there...
|9 weeks 32 min ago||I can't wait to see that||
I can't wait to see that either he had multiple freshmen starting on the offensive line at USC last year, and they were playing well against some big time competition out there in the PAC-12
|9 weeks 34 min ago||Right thats one of the things||
Right thats one of the things that is touched on in the article but it is behind paywall and i didnt want to give too much away in fear of losing what little points I do have because of it
|9 weeks 3 hours ago||Dont you think guys like||
Dont you think guys like Swenson and Price would both be left tackle kinda guys? I mean we have plenty of big linemen on the roster from the Hoke recruiting classes but none have really separated from the rest of the group
|9 weeks 16 hours ago||I went to high school with a||
I went to high school with a kid who's name was spelled very similarly to this (only had one "n" on the end) and they pronouced it like the name "shane"...Not sure if this is how he pronounces it or not
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I believe he is referecing||
I believe he is referecing the fact that transfering from one big ten school to another without the release from your previous school means that you can't be on scholarship at the new school and you would have to pay your own way.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||I think there are a lot of||
I think there are a lot of factors playing into the no commits yet column. Most guys havent been on campus yet, they also have barely had a chance to get to know the coaches and build a relationship with them. Plus most of the guys are from areas where they are going to have trouble getting to campus on their own dime for an unofficial visit. So to get to campus they have to wait a while yet till they can take an official visit to see the campus.
Also there is a huge factor playing in to the whole equation, they are waiting to see the results ON THE FIELD first and foremost
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Costello would be a huge get||
Costello would be a huge get being that he is from CA and there is a lot of talent out there this year like most. Having a guy out there who, in hindsight is the face of this class, would be a great way to get the michigan name in the ears of the guys out there who are high on michigan but might be afraid to leave the state.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||I think this just pushes him||
I think this just pushes him more into the tight end position and that means he has to pack on a few pounds to be able to be an effective blocker. Thats all a lot of guys arent that fast but he is athletic enough to make up for that in the short to intermediate route tree.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I could see a sport where||
I could see a sport where size isn't as much as a factor like soccer or even baseball being recruited heavy at that age, but football there is just too much to factor into all of it when it comes to the long run. I mean look at David sill. He's recruited as a prodigy 7th grader commits to USC turns out to be slightly above average at 18 and USC drops him for someone better. He ends up at West Virginia and nobody blinks an eye about the way it all played out from start to finish
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah i would say they need to||
Yeah i would say they need to do that ASAP because he is a California kid who plays in one of the best leagues out there and he is dominating. I would say if he wants to have a michigan offer and would be willing to take a trip to see the big house than i say that Harbaugh needs to make it happen
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Im not 100% sure what the||
Im not 100% sure what the difference is between gray and blue shirt but if he wants to come to michigan and we have the room to take him, it is hard to pass up an athlete like that when you look at the way the roster has been built over the last couple of years. Just like grant perry who was underrated and overlooked has a chip on his shoulder I think this guy would carry a huge chip on his shoulder and come in and try to out work everyone who was recruited in front of him. Plus harbaugh was known to take flyers on guys while out at stanford, he wasnt apposed to taking guys who were unrated or had just two stars.

Michael Carvell (@Carvell_AJC) UPDATE: LB Roquan Smith is back on market. Considering UGA, Texas A&M, Michigan and, yes, UCLA.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||The only thing I have heard||
The only thing I have heard about was jokingly on another post. Plus there is nothing about it on twitter, or any of the paid sites so I wouldnt even worry about the whole thing
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I saw earlier before he made||
I saw earlier before he made his declaration that there were some people on 247 changing their pick for him to Texas A&M which really kinda surprised me considering they werent really in the running down to the wire it seemed. I also agree with the reporters tweet above a Georgia kid who waited till the end and still didnt pick Georgia just seems like he was being kind and keeping the home team in it till the end so he didnt have to deal with the backlash of all the fans so close to home.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||I didnt know he was friends||
I didnt know he was friends with Perry which could be a big reason to like the tweet especially if Perry did make some sort of decommitment or switch today.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||If it is anything to mention||
If it is anything to mention about his recruitment is that he removed the title of Ole Miss Commit from his twitter bio today as reported by a couple people across the twitter universe who are following his recruitment. Also at one point he had liked the tweet from Jay Harbaugh about the #Amaizing thing...So michigan may have a better chance than we originally thought
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Right after he got the offer||
Right after he got the offer he said he wasnt coming to Michigan and was sticking with his commitment to Iowa. Even with Harbaugh there is a struggle to get guys to come to michigan who have been committed to other schools for a while.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||A log of guys who have been||
A log of guys who have been thought of as really close to potential flips are now trending towards other schools it seems. Its kinda like they get the offer/contact from Harbaugh, they get so excited that they claim something about michigan being close to the top, they visit and then the shine wears off and they all decide on some other school
|16 weeks 3 days ago||I would tend to disagree with||
I would tend to disagree with that and day were even behind Arizona state. He's visited there a couple times and has actual crystal ball predictions to the school.
