Arnett to transfer

Just read on Rivals mainboard DeAnthony Arnett is leaving Tenessee because of fathers declining health. Anyone hear anything on our front, Sparty is claiming he is a MSU lock

... I don't think he's a LOCK to state... I think its gonna be distance if anything... I think since his family is in saginaw he's more likely to central plus central is familar to him lots of kids from saginaw go up to central... but who knows

I'm not sure just what his father's health situation is, but if it's really bad he may want to be even closer.  For me, I would not want to be over an hour away if my father's health was bad.

It would be surprising, but not ridiculous, if he ended up at Saginaw Valley State University.  They've produced NFL talent in recent years and it's 10 minutes from his home.  He would be able to dominate there, and NFL scouts would make it there.  It doesn't hurt that they play in the same league as Wayne State, who just played in the national championship game, and Grand Valley.

Again, it would be surprising to see a 4 star kid go to a non-D I school, but given the circumstances not earth shattering.

Ohhhh crap. I just realized what the Shane Morris thing made me think of.

DA used to work out regularly with Andrew Maxwell, the new msu QB. They have a pretty solid relationship. Nice that Morris is doing that but I'm afraid he will have a LOT of ground to make up.

Regardless of if we get Arnett or not, I love that Shane Morris is one of our top recruiters. This dude is gonna be one of the all-time greats at Michigan, and its great that he is constantly buzzing in other recruit's ears to get them to come to A2 with him. Hahaha.

Looking at the Red Shirt Juniors, I can't see anyone outside cox and trob that you could give that "firm handshake" to, everyone else is needed for depth. so if we get arnett we have to go with 27 unless they know of someoen that will not be back next year that we are not in the loop on

As far as I'm concerned he's a must get recruit. He's exactly the type of dynamic athlete we need at the skils position post Denard. Now that we're out of it for Diggs, I think Arnett would really add a dimension to this class and the roster of WR's that we don't currently have...
