I am fairly convinced Poggi joins team 134 today.  Hearing good things from a couple of people who I certainly trust.  Would LOVE to have him as a wolverine.  Now, we wait..

I don't think I'm saying anything outlandish.  I'm not making posts saying I know his fathers ex-highschool girlfriend or even saying he will no doubt commit for that matter.  I just have a good feeling he could pull the trigger before today is history.  And if he doesn't, I think its inevitable he will join this class at some point in the near future.  Plus, I can care less about my reputation.  That is the last reason why i made an account on this site.  

Also, I wasn't around for BKfinest, but from what I've heard, he was and still is a legend on MGoBlog.  Kinda.  And who knows, maybe I'm him.  Couldn't stay away from the game.  Uh oh.

It's actually his 3rd visit, and he's on campus now for the second day of his 3rd visit.  It's a good sign, but I don't get the impression that he will comit.

No/ I believe it was on Tremendous stating that he has visited all of jis purported leaders, but, aside from us, he has visited none of them multiple times. Also, he's a smart kid. He can do the math as well as anyone. whatever his plans were, it takes no stretch of the imagination to see him accelerating his schedule. Search your feelings, Poggi, you know them to be Blue!

They're going to want at least 1 DT in the class.  The list of possible DTs is shorter than any other position.  If I were him, I'd feel pretty comfortable that there'd be a spot for me a few months from now until I started to hear something to suggest otherwise.

I suppose other O-Linemen had the same thought about our last O-Line spot. Then Kugler gobbled it up wandering by on his way to a school he was supposed to favor.

The math is simple: with no attrition, we have room for 20 players. We have 16. The coaches expressed a desire to get as many as two more LBs, two WRs, a third TE...that's already more than 20, without any D-Linemen. This is a squeeze which effects every position.

More specifically, we have D-Linemen visiting as early as the Spring Game. If one of them pulls a Kugler and pulls the trigger, his space could be gone. It's not as if we've turned away talent because more touted prospects were waiting in the wings.

So assume what you want.

I think 22 is universally agreed on, wth a lot of people suggesting 24 after Bell left.  As was mentioned on the front page, football teams don't go 10 months without losing a player.

I think we slow down around 20 though.  We're saving some flex spots for going after 5 guys the coaches are really high on.  So what matters in terms of Poggi is if he was told "we'll save you a spot" or if he was told "we're taking X DTs and when we have X your offer is no longer commitable".

I wouldn't think recruits at any position would feel comfortable about spots staying open, especially past the spring game. Disclaimer for Cravens and Levenberry, who seem to be the only players recruited for their positions.

I would say Poggi is in the top 3 on the wish list.  A top talent at a position of need.

I really love that these players that are being recruited hard seem to be great athletes and great kids.

My powers of deduction tell me that he is hanging out with Green and Morris.  Anybody else out there today?  Can we confirm that Morris has a cowboy hat on?

I was talking to a cute girl the other day who was originally from the Philippines, and she told me I was "pogi"- which she said meant, in Tagalog, that I was handsome.  Since she was flirting with me, I wanted to believe what she was saying.  However, it's very possible that she was just calling me a vagina instead. 

Cool story, bro?...not to me if it turns out she wasn't flirting with me, but was calling out my manhood instead.
