On the scout board, there is an interesting discussion of Diamond’s apparent statement that he will “shock the world” tomorrow. Is it bad news or is it a reference to the Fab Five (offensive line commitments at UM, if he comes).
I call this the “Five of Diamond’s” theory (ie the theory that Diamond was referrring to the (Fab) FIve when he said he would shock the world.). And if he picks UM, I will give him Michelin's FIve Diamonds award.
“Sam Webb interviewed Hoke yesterday at the WTKA Signing Day Extravaganza. And Webb asked Hoke about the possibility of landing any more kids. Hoke replied something like "a Texas sized piece and an Alaska sized piece". To me that says he means two large players. So obviously the staff is holding out hope for landing either or both of these kids.
Unfortunately I'm starting to get a feeling we land neither. Think I read on ******* last night that Jordan Diamond tweeted he's going to shock the world. Well going to Michigan will not shock anybody. So it would have to be a team people hardly expected him to go to. So that puts Auburn,Wisconsin and who knows? maybe even something crazy like OHIO. “
“Could it be that Diamond is referencing the fab five when Juwan Howard said they were gonna "shock the world"? He was also another Chicago boy. Diamond is going blue and Kozan is going Auburn... Book it.”
“I hope that's what he meant.”
“ A poster on the r*ivals board also takes the statement as a reference to the "Fab FIve" and believes that it is not only a good omen for UM. As a member of a school that competes with UM, he regrets that it is now a foregone conclusion that Diamond will pick UM.”

“I thought something similar.... But he has kept things so close to the vest it is hard to really get a feel.”
“I think you're spot on here”
”He has been coy. But he also said at the beginning he was going to go thru the process. He took all his officials and yet he has been to UM like 6 times. I think this is a kid who was always going blue, yet he wanted to enjoy the trips plus get some exposure for his boys at Simeon High.”
