Lol literally every one of your posts in the first page of your post history is either shitting on Michigan football or MGoBlog, yet you've been around since 2009 so I doubt you're just some Sparty fan in disguise. Must be a very sad way of life to just go around pouring water on anyone with the unmitigated gall to share a lick of optimism.

(in before "actually I'm just super realistic with my expectations and that makes for an optimal fan experience", give me a break)

Considering Gary was the highest rated college football recruit since Clowney, I'd say people here considered him appropriately rated.

I do enjoy, though, that you're actually trying to justify trolling around MGoBlog as a self-appointed optimism police.

Would be ecstatic to have this guy at Michigan.  I guess some folks don't understand that you can make a style comparison without saying you think he'll be as good as the comparable, because Charbonnet's running style definitely reminds me of Perry.

Also love Kyren Williams, who looks A LOT like Mike Hart (Sam Webb nailed that one).  He's not as fast as Charbonnet, but he is so shifty and has great balance.  He will be a great college player somewhere.

Jay is becoming elite on the trail.  Simple.  The jackhammer work ethic is clearly genetic and it's only a matter of time before we start to see his hard work pay off with top-end national talent. "It's not about how bad you want's about how hard you are willing to work for it".

The work he has put into California is incredible.  Our foothold is stronger than it's been in a long time.  De La Salle, Mater Dei, Coronoa, Mission and Chamande to name a few.  Jay has the ability to walk into almost any school on the West Coast and be welcomed with open arms. Most people would assume that is because of his last name, but if you ask the coaches from these schools and others on the trail they will tell you, it's the first name.  

I wonder if coach would consider making him the lead recruiter with CP, more in a capacity like Kerry Combs, where he's involved with all the staff top choices?  I know DB and GM have a strong grip on defense, and East coast kids.  However, Jay might be helpful to go to another level..  Another idea would be adding Detroit to his list of responsibilities..

Many of us believe that the Moore and Washington hires have a correlation to GM retiring. Well let me give you one more, and something I truly believe.  Jay Harbaugh is the next coach at the University of Michigan.

The foothold in California is stronger than in a long time in California?

Nobody from California has committed in 2020.

Or 2019.

Or 2018.

Or 2017. 

We got two Californians in 2016, and one already transferred back to UCLA. (The other is David Long.)

If that's stronger than it has been in California in a long time, then...that's not saying much.

I personally think Crouch and Emery are head and shoulders above anyone UM is recruiting at RB right now. Supposedly Emery has a top 3 of UM, UF, and LSU and with UF poised to get Trey Sanders it could come down to UM and LSU. Normally I'd say it would be hard to pull a Louisiana kid from LSU but they might not win 7 games this year. Could be a race worth running for UM so to speak.

If you follow recruitng heavily, there is a very slim chance of getting Emery out of the boot and away from LSU, who is currently the leader in his recruitment. Next, crouch is another early option that is going to be heading elsewhere, his former coach was the only reason we were in that race and now he's gone. Crouch will be staying in the south either at UT or Clemson.
