Jamarco Jones Visits to Happen

Submitted by MichiganMan2424 on June 13th, 2013 at 6:48 PM

Per the Core 6 (which Jones is a part of) twitter account from 45 minutes ago:

"Visits will still go as planned to Michigan State, Michigan and Ohio State. Announcement June 27th for All American OL Jamarco Jones."

This is obviously contradictory to his tweet that the visits won't happen. Hopefully they do happen and it helps Michigan land Jones in the end.

I wonder if Ohio is still interested in him or if his quickness to surrender to a family situation has displayed a lack of passion for the game that doesnt quite fit their program

that Jones---who's 100% Ohio acc to 247 sports--told Ohio he was committing to them and cancelling other visits.  Then Urban--a documented publicity hound who knows he's losing to UM--saw an opportunity.  He told Jones to wait--just so that he can get more media attention and make it look like a real Ohio vs UM competition.

Maybe I am too cynical.  I did not see either the original tweet or the message that rescinded it, and I have not been following Jones recruitment (which seemed like a done deal).

I like the zeal, but there's no way in hell Urban is trying to get his recruits to actually visit Michigan.  He's unlikeable, but he's also pretty smart.  That would be dumb.  An analogy: would anyone's wife ask them to go test out some other chick, only to dump the other chick so that the wife looks like a hotter commodity?  No?

Dude was a "OSU Lock" for forever but lately there's been snippets of info out there suggesting it's a heck of a lot closer than everyone thinks, plus Sam Webb seemed pretty optimistic about our chances. I'd say we're in pretty darn good position if we can get another visit from him

For whatever reason, Urban doesn't seem to be able to recruit OL well. I think we can swoop in and get the steal

My guess would be it was a transportation issue. I bet somebody like a high school coach or somebody jumped in at the last minute to help out.

Does he project to LT?  Also, is anyone else just a little concerned about the future at LT?  After the poor reviews of Magnusson thus far and the boom/bust potential of LTT, I'm wondering who will even play the position in 2014.
