Taco Charlton Commits, Too

Submitted by Brian on February 19th, 2012 at 12:13 AM

Ace is currently on the street trying to score some icepacks for his fingers and methamphetamine for everything else, because by this time tomorrow the Hello post backlog will be 62.

Meanwhile, in the MGoBlog executive suite* the rumbling basso laughter of world domination. Via Tim Sullivan:

Michigan's 2013 recruiting is on a roll today. Pickerington (Ohio) Central defensive end Taco Charlton confirms that as the sixth commitment of the day, and No. 9 overall for the class.

So… today went well. Charlton is the sixth consensus four star to commit today. I'm going to high five this wall now.

I can't comprehend this. If I stay up we might get Treadwell, Isaac and Pocic. What is happening today? I love life. 

HIGH FIVES (haha, I am in my basement (watched the game down here))

What a great night! Six great commits in one day, the good guys triumphed on the hardwood, and my mouse's attempts to sabotage my last two chess games failed (1.5/2).

we already have one fewer rivals 250 kid than the entire 2012 class, and have one more person in rivals 100, these rankings can change of course, but man I thought i was happy when the commitments were flowing in last summer.

Today was so good that it inspired me to join MGoBlog! So lets see: Beat @%#$&* (Ohio) in Basketball? Check. Win in overtime on senior night in Hockey? Check. Sign six 4-star recruits for football in the 2013 class? Check. February 18th was a successful day. Bring on February 19th!

Welcome to the blog.  It would have been better, karma wise, if you had joined on Feb 18th... but the date joined seems to indicate the 19th.  I hope that's also a good omen that we pick up a few more recruits today as well.

Great day all around.  I imagine Red, Beilein and Hoke sitting in leather arm chairs, drinking scotch and laughing softly until one says something about their plans for world domination.  Then they just smile.

First we lose to Michigan State so we can go to the Sugar Bowl then players talk on TV about how hungry they are, now we accept commitments from tacos... Hoke- THIS IS NOT EPIC MEAL TIME. FOOTBALL DECISIONS should be made for FOOTBALL REASONS, not for how tasty they sound! Everyone on here needs to get a grip. Fire Hoke.

Honestly, two years ago at this time who would have predicted a day like today? Michigan basketball having a legit shot at a B1G title and Michigan football getting all the recruits. The present is bright, the future is even brighter.

We currently have 8, Rivals Top 250 players for 2013.  Make that 8 of our current 9 to be ranked that high.  This years top 10 class had 9 players ranked that high -- HOLY CRAP are we off to a good start!
