A Couple Pertinent Sunday Night Recruiting Bits

Submitted by DGDestroys on December 12th, 2010 at 10:13 PM

I don't normally do this, but I'm bored, and I figure that when the MGoCommunity stacks the CC against a small recruiting update, they'll consistently take the latter. Don't get me wrong, you can read the whole thing in a Cris Carter accent if you want. 

First and foremost, according to Razorbacktalk.com (but mostly Tom's tweet), Dr. P (Fl) S Roderick Ryles has decommited from Arkansas. He's presumably coming up with the big pack of Dr. P kids sometime in January, and was recruited (and offered) fairly heavily in early October. You can probably expect more from Tom tomorrow/sometime soon. Recruitment Rankings (to be given the cold shoulder):

Scout: 2* Safety

Rivals: 3* Safety, #21 ranked safety nationally

ESPN: 3* Safety, #47 ranked safety nationally

Second, the era of prosperity under Butch Jones in Cincinnati can now commence with the commitment of GA DE/TE Silverberry Mouhon. Silverberry is likely finish a close second to Wake Forest commit FL DE Gods-Power Offor for name of the year. 

Third, you can expect a January commitment from MI DE Anthony Zettel (not necessarily to UM), who took his official visit this week, was hosted by Jordan Paskorz, and hung out with commit MI T Jake Fisher most of the weekend. He's also been to several bowl practices. 

Justice Hayes wants Dee to stay blue, and is willing to throw in smiley faces(Sidenote: Rosenberg, this isn't a violation, back off) to keep him.

I wonder if meyer stepping down really have an effect on dee hart staying at home (michigan) we need you bro :)

Finally, for any super-optimists out there (you know, the type still waiting for Lawrence Thomas to decommit from MSU), CA WR George Farmer committed to USC. Before anyone asks, no, we never really had a chance with him. 

Just a few bits that aren't worthy of their own thread, but might when you string em' together.

Also, I don't have anything on it but Devondrick Nealy was at Iowa State this weekend. Looks like it's Michigan, Auburn and Iowa State for him.


One of these things is not like the other...........

I read an article about that the other day. I thought it was a little weird...but what do i know. Also, Auburn's fallen out of it a little with him. They're not showing as much interest as they were before, I don't know what happened. Might be us, Bama, and Iowa State. That's just weird.

I talked to Chris Hayes from the Orlando Sentinel about this. Chris spoke with Roderick tonight, and Roderick said that Michigan is not in it for him, and he doesn't know who's saying they are.

I don't think Roderick would have any reason to lie to Hayes, so take that FWIW. I haven't spoken to Ryles yet about it. His view could change with some coach contact, obviously. We're coming up to a dead period though, so there won't be much immediate contact.

..doesn't look so good. LA NT Mickey Johnson probably won't visit, and we don't have much of a chance even if he did. It now looks as though MD NT Darian Cooper is going to take one more official to Penn State (having already taken two to MSU and GT) and is going to decide after that. Our best shot seems to be with PA NT Robert Trudo, but even he's a pretty long shot. Additionally, for anyone who didn't hear, we're no longer in with FL DT Timmy Jernigan either. DT recruiting is not looking very promising right now.
