Title says it all. Says he followed the Rashan Gary recruitment "very closely".

First comment on that ESPN article is some SEC blow hard complaining about Harbaugh's recruiting tactics: "Basically, it's the B1G skirting the rules again by having "non-recruiting" spring practices. Do what you gotta, but call it like it is-dirty"

Such delicious tears.  The best maybe.

might be hard to pry loose from Tiger and Crimson Tide territory? I'm thinking he just wants to see how the other half lives and will make his officials and then wind up back home down South.

Small tip to the writer of this recruitng story. While the college football world might know who this kid is, how about mentioning what position he plays. He's big enough to play almost anywhere except in the trenches. So, not listing his position for those like me, sort of derails the significance of the link to this story, which, only casually suggests mild curiousity about Michigan based on Gary's recruitment model.

He just wants to hook up with all the hot chicks in the office.  While it's flattering to be considered one of those, he's made it clear in word and deed that he's into southern bimbos.  

That's not us and it never will be, nor does it need to be.

Maybe if we are bored and have nothing better to do, we'll give him a call.  Maybe we won't.

I realize that each year we have a finite number of scholarships to offer recruits.  But wouldn't the number 1 ranked player have a standing offer?  True, he may not be Michigan's #1 ranked player but Moses is still highly regarded at a position of need.  Any harm to sending out offers to the top 5 every year?  The worst thing that can happen is they all accept right?

Meh. He wants an offer "because he doesn't have one yet". Doesn't equal he has actual interest. Just wants that shiny offer letter. But heck, won't hurt to offer.

The prompting question isn't listed but I presume it was something like "Rashan went to Michigan but they haven't offered you. Would you like to hear from them?"


"That would be cool,” he said. "I’ve never really seen Michigan up close like that before and I’ve never visited the school either. It’s just a great opportunity and you know, hopefully I can get an offer from them, because I don’t have one yet.”

So I'd say "Dylan Moses wants to hear from Michigan" is a little click-baity

Distance adds mystique.

If I'm a recruit from the south, I want an offer from Michigan and Oregon and Notre Dame to add to my "collection".  I might even do an OV to one of those schools just to see different places.

Does not mean that I am going to any of those far-away northern schools.  It's just a way to add to my cool portfolio.

But you never know, so you have to give it a shot if you are Harbaugh.

The guy I really want is Kaindoh.  I was actually more impressed with him than Gary in the IMG/Paramus game.  (To be fair it was an off-game for Gary.  He looked like a different guy in the HS all star game.)
