I don't know if anyone was watching College Football Live but Jesse Palmer just had some very interesting things to say about Greg Mattison. Below is a link of a transcript of the episode.

Here are the quotes:


Michigan and brady hoke hit a home run with greg mattison. He's one of the best people and coaches I've been around. He's a great, great recruiter, michigan needs that right now.

Greg mattison signed my brother to play at notre dame and best friend coached at the university offal ifful. Both told me greg mattison is not a good recruiter, he's not a great recruiter, he's legendary. Urban meyer told my best friend, stop, study and watch greg mattison learn how to recruit.

I'd assumed that Mattison's name would carry weight but his enthusiasm for recruiting would be modest, and perhaps his one weakness.  Very happy to be wrong.  I like the words coming out of Jesse Palmer's mouth.

He'll be an even BETTER recruiter now, because some kids WILL respond to that line. "You know, I seriously, honestly, really do know just what to do to turn you into a successful NFL defensive player."

That was one thing I was wondering about Mattison, if he would still have that urge to recruit after being in the NFL for a while. Good to hear he was such a beast back when he was still in college. After he shakes off some rust, I am sure he will be back kicking tail. Plus the whole "I coached the Ravens D" thing should be quite helpful...

Kind of nice to hear some positive things about Michigan again. I was a RR supporter but after seeing events transpire over the past week, this was probably the best move for both parties. Bank the scholarships this year because next year we are going to fuck shit up.

Is not the first person to say that.  Everyone says Mattison is an awesome recruiter.  

If he even closes in on one or two DE/DL this year, I think he will prove it.

I wish I was this excited for the HC hire, but I'm really warming to the new regime. Mattison sounds exactly like  what this program needs. GO BLUE!

My #1 concern was recruiting with Mattison. I was terrified we had another Gerg who was old and just sat home without recruiting! To hear this makes me BEYOND excited, great X's & O's coach combined with badass recruiter = Extreme Jubilation.

I'm becoming overwhelmed with positivity with our program...Me Likey!

NRK - His recruiting was a complete unknown to me until these recent public backings. I knew he was a helluva coach, just didn't know that he was such a sniper on the recruiting trails.

Hopefully he has some blue chips in his cross hairs!

Maybe someone with photo shop skillz could give us our top targets in crosshairs!
