DeAnthony Arnett lists top 4...AND????

"Dee said his visit to Cal was better than USC and they are a major player," Arnett's brother, Ralph, said. "He is deciding between five schools: Tennessee, Michigan State, Cal, USC and the surprise school people will know Saturday or Sunday."

Are we the surprise school??? I am doubtful but who else could it be???  Weren't the coaches at Saginaw recently??

Ya the "surprise" visit is to Boise. The Boise St. field is his background on his twitter that someone posted yesterday. Also when he tweeted, "GO BLUE" the other day it was meant for Boise... I think.

and he was almost unstopable once he took off. He is almost fast enough to pass the ball 40yds down field and still catch it before it hits the ground.

He did seem a little thin but I am sure MB can fix that.

I would love to see him go blue.

You're not suggesting are you that these high school kids are using this process to somehow further their own publicity now are you? 

Shame on you for even hinting at such nonsense.  The fifth school he might be considering is VERY important.  As is his ability this weekend at parties to Google his name and show chicks from school how many hits come up.

He apparently just took a visit out to Boise and has been talking them up on Twitter.

The kid is a joker.  He's constantly playing around with fans of different teams recruiting him on Twitter and is enjoying every second of this process.

I expect him to go to State because fuck our lives.

I think he is the surprise recruit that Sam Webb was talking about for the Iowa game that didn't pan out. I am expecting to see him at the game this weekend. Any chance of getting a guy on campus gives us a fighting chance with a recruit. It will be a good atmosphere with the F-16 flyover, wounded warrior day, and all.

I am not getting my hopes up too high that he will come to Michigan even if he narrows his list down to 2 or 3 and we are still on it. I think we are getting played like we did by Pryor, who never had any intention of coming here, but wanted to keep us from recruiting another QB for our system. That was just another Tressel mindfuck.

He's not coming here.

I've talked to numerous people, including his brother, who say that if M was running a more pro-style offense with Devin at the helm DeAnthony would be much more interested.  

With Denard backed up by Tate for presumably two more years, and DG waiting in the wings for a while (presuming he doesn't have a MONSTER offseason which is obviously possible given the talent) Arnett just isn't coming to Michigan.

Even if we were the surprise school, we'd still be at bottom looking up. If it came down to the decision of being close to home, I'm almost certain he'd go to MSU.

DeAnthony, before you commit to State, you should ask yourself "who the hell is going to be throwing me the ball after Cousins graduates?"

and Arnett is the cool kid inviting me to prom? Something tells me to get excited about this kid's recruitment would be asking for a bucket of pig's blood dumped on me on signing day.
