Comment From SD MichiganFan

How does the fact that Michigan has 3 DL Coaches, along with former Ravens Defensive Coord. weigh into your feelings with Michigan?

 
OndrePipkins: 

SD MichiganFan: It really does ... because it's going to be a defensive-type of team and defense wins championships.

Question from Matt: Do you think you fit better in a 4-3 or 3-4? Or does it matter?

PeeWee's answer: It doesn't matter. As long as I draw a double team and my linebackers can flow to the ball easier, I think I can fit into any type of scheme.

nice...

i feel somewhat conflicted here because on the one hand following a chat with a 16 year old kid is entirely creepy, but on the other hand i am pretty impressed at how michigan fans are just totally dominating the chat with thoughtful, considerate and non-creepy questions--and i'm also creeped kind of out by that.

damn you society and your high standards for acceptable behavior!

If Woodley is his favorite player it would be awesome if Pipkins could visit during the Nebraska game. It's on the Steelers' bye week and hopefully Woodley would stop by for the game.

Comment From ellobo 

outside of your family, who do you go to for advice on the recruiting process?

OndrePipkins: 

ellobo: Ralph Arnett .... Deanthony Arnett ... Lamar Woodley and Cliff Ryan

I would guess that Ondre already knows Woodley, since Woodley is from Saginaw and that's where Ondre used to live.

Man, I can't imagine being 16 or 17 and garnering this type of attention AND being able to keep it all in perspective.

Ondre did a great job and I'd say we've got as good a shot as anybody.

Go Blue PeeWee....we got sweet helmets, the best stadium, family-first priorities, and all the double teams you could hope for.

His favorite player is Woodley, his favorite movie is 30 for 30 Fab 5, and he feels like Saginaw is home more than Missouri...yea, I think we have a shot.

--Rivals is a major recruiting site and has been for years.

--The chat room probably has multiple mods screening comments and putting trolls in the penalty box.

--This is taking place in a public place, i.e. open Internet Q-and-A, and there have been announcements and a set time, etc. as part of the preparations.

The chat looked like it was well put together.  The questions were good and he seems like a really mature kid for his age.  PeeWee seems very Michigan oriented and I think we have a good shot to put him in a winged helmet, plus we have #56 reserved for the big boy on Defense....

I think he's going to start as a freshman, and if he stays healthy will be a first-rounder whenever he enters the draft.

I think Pipkins is the most important recruit for us from here on out.  We seem to be in on a ton of good lineman so we can probably afford a miss there.  We need DTs desperately and I think OP is the best of them and seems to like the idea of going to school in Michigan.  Cant miss out on that guy!  Also would love to get the Washington/Standford pair and fill two needs at once.

He hasn't even visited yet, although with his roots he's most likely been to AA for a game. 

I think he goes blue, and I'd bet today's paycheck that Woodley is all over this.
