that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

Two Michigan offerees committed to Ohio State today at their spring game:
2016 center Jack Wohlabaugh

It would take a *lot* of body development for him to become the size of a tackle...

Yeesh, I hate AAU basketball highlights. That first video is just a parade of lazy, crappy, uninspired defense.

Ambry Thomas was offered by Michigan on Thursday, so now all the in-state guys on the list have offers.

I think that ended in the days of Henson and Pearson.

Maybe he just wanted to be coached by a competent offensive coordinator.

There was an article in Sports Illustrated not long ago about a Wilt Chamberlin kid. He's not 7' feet tall or any kind of athlete.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Well, Singleton is #135 and||
Well, Singleton is #135 and Bolds is #178 in the initial 247 Sports ranking, so those are some pretty high rankings. I don't really buy that those offers were made just because of their Paramus Catholic connection.

Ummmm...yeah, I'm sure it's athletically related. Donnie Corley went from Wyandotte to Detroit King. Martell Pettaway and Kyonta Stallworth went from St. Clair Shores to Detroit King. Lavert Hill went from Cass Tech to King, which seems like a lateral move at best. Those guys are all 3- or 4-star kids who transferred in the span of about a year.
Something is going on there. The only one that doesn't seem questionable is Lavert Hill.

I probably wouldn't have clicked on this thread if you hadn't hinted that he was playing QB on offense. It would be nice to see a more accurate thread title.
|3 days 23 hours ago||Aside from Khalid Kareem in||
Aside from Khalid Kareem in 2016, there's not a ton of talent for a couple years, as far as I know. The next biggest recruit will probably be a wide receiver/safety/linebacker prospect named Ovie Oghoufo in the 2018 class.

...and King. They've got a ton of good prospects these days, too.

Yeah, the spring evaluation period has begun, so there is probably going to be a flurry of new offers to go along with these two Paramus Catholic kids.

It's possible, but like WolvinLA2 says, the Ohio State/Mike Weber thing might make any Technicians think twice about going to Columbus. I'm not saying we'll get him, but I think we have a good shot.

Denton is only about 45 minutes from Dallas.

I agree. He looks like a safety to me, but one who's still a little light. Once he fills out, I think he's going to be an in-the-box safety or slot guy.

Just right, I think. His film isn't exremely impressive.

My bad. It won't happen again.

According to the 247 Composite rankings, he's closer to a 3-star than a 5-star.

The children of Shawn Kemp, Travis Henry, and Antonio Cromartie could probably fill out a pretty good college football roster. That's assuming five of Kemp's kids get the Fat Kemp gene and not the Ripped Kemp gene so you could throw together an offensive line.
|4 days 14 hours ago||I don't remember how many||
I don't remember how many there were, but I have noticed over the past few cycles (since I type up these lists often) that skill players are ranked abnormally high, especially wide receivers. That might be partly because of the way the game is played today with spread offenses, lots of receivers, etc., but it can get ridiculous at times. Especially with these early lists, it seems like 1/3 or 1/4 of the guys in the top 50 are receivers...but good luck finding any centers, guards, or inside linebackers.

Wide receivers always start high.

I think he's on the radar; he just hasn't been offered yet. He's listed at 5'11", 165 lbs., but I doubt he's that tall and he's still very light. I think it sort of depends on what Michigan wants/needs at the corner position, but I would not be surprised if he gets offered soon. It's probably only a matter of time.
|4 days 16 hours ago||I think we have good shots||
I think we have good shots with all of the guys we have offered. Michigan went ahead and offered them early. Kelly-Powell grew up a Michigan fan, and Josh Ross's brother already plays here. Peoples-Jones's dad went to Michigan, too, but he's a big-time recruit who could go anywhere, so I'm not sure about him. I also think JaRaymond Hall is likely to end up at Michigan, but he's a little newer to the recruiting scene.
Ambry Thomas is a speedy kid from Detroit King. He's a little on the small side but might be the fastest football player in the state. I'm interested to see if Michigan will go after him or not.
|4 days 19 hours ago||That's not really the whole||
That's not really the whole story. The "rankings" (which is the term I used initially) tell us that Matt Falcon is closer to a 3-star than a 5-star.
Out of the term "rankings," somehow it devolved into an argument about Scout alone, which is silly because there are four recruiting services and even a handy 247 Composite ranking.
I don't really even know why I'm discussing it, because it probably seems like I'm down on Falcon, which I'm not. I actually rated him pretty high. But it's frustrating how words get twisted and massaged.
Personally, I think it's dumb to call anyone a 5-star recruit unless it's a consensus thing (all four sites agree) or unless the 247 Composite tells us so (all four sites' average). I mean, I don't think of Shane Morris as a 5-star recruit just because Scout told us so; Rivals, ESPN, and 247 Sports all had him as a 4-star guy. When referring to recruiting, the more data points, the better. In Morris's case, as an example, Scout seems to have been even further off than Rivals, ESPN, and 247.
|4 days 23 hours ago||His current ranking is||
His current ranking is reflective of whatever the various sites think of him. I mean, I can't really tell you what the various scouts who have seen him think of his talents. Personally, I ranked him highly, I think he's the #3 player in the state, I like him, etc. But I have no say in the star rankings.
Yes, he could make a large jump. But that's not really the issue here. The discussion is about whether he's closer to a 5-star or a 3-star. And the FACT is that is only the case on Scout, while he's closer to a 3-star according to ESPN, Rivals, and 247 Sports.
