Aren't Buckle Ups reserved for when we have reason to believe we are getting a guy?

All of his 247 predictions are to other teams, and MGoFish (very much a Michigan optimist) doesn't even have him in his best prediction class.

Maybe just say that he's making an announcement at 6?

Think we have to be in the car first before we can think about buckling up. More than likely that this is just an announcement of his Top 5 or something.

A recruit who is very high on Michigan (or the presumed leader) announcing his decision, or a recruiting expert giving some valuable info about a recruit and his final decision.

It does look to me like he's not a very good form tackler. Lots of highlights where he grabs the back high and isn't exploding through the ball carrier. With so many power backs in the B1G, he'll have to learn to bring the wood a little more to get the job done. I do like his ability to key and diagnose, and he seems to shed blockers well. Just being in the right place at the right time can go a long way for a linebacker. Hope this kid goes Blue tonight!

Apparently he has been silent with the media for the past two weeks. Seems like it will be a trimmed down list of his top schools.

Us and Moo U right? I thought he was really high on Michigan. So if he shut down talking to recruiting sites after his visit here maybe he is coming or maybe it's a top 5. I havent seen any news on him from Sam or Steve so this would be a nice surprise.

A recruit yesterday made a similar statement and his big announcement was he committed to play in the US Army All-American game. I'm beginning to regret my interest in recruiting.

I'm surprised I'm the optimistic voice here, but Dontavious Jackson loved his visit to Michigan a couple weeks ago. He and Chris Brown paid their own way to Ann Arbor. I'm not saying an announcement would absolutely be Michigan, but I would bet Michigan's in his top group and has a chance at getting his commitment, regardless of whether there are any Crystall Balls for him or not.
