McDowell told Marshall he would pick UM (pre-announcement)

As if the recruitment of Malik McDowell needed anymore "Wait... What?!" moments, TheWolverine released an interview with Lawrence Marshall earlier that included a pretty shocking quote:

"I told him he should go there if he wanted to - I'm happy for him at MSU," Marshall said. That was the school he wanted to go to. But he came to school today and was basically telling me he was going to Michigan. When the letter was on the table and he signed it, I thought he was going to Michigan.

When I first got there this morning he was leaning toward Michigan and telling me he was going to Michigan, so when he announced it, I was shocked."
 

Wait...WHAT?! I am now trapped in a glass case of emotion. It should be noted that McDowell's LOI is still not in, so who knows where he will end up.

Can Speight as an enrolled student, or say, Michael Ferns, as technically still a recruit, swing by McDowells house tonight and drop off a tape and say "youre a michigan man and you belong at michigan". ? Would either of them be a violation?

The more I hear about him, the less I want him near the program.  Now, I'm not convinced that's his fault -- it would appear he handled the commitment process well, but the helicopter parents and everything else just seems too much.

Anybody who even asks if we would still take him is an idiot. Do you guys ENJOY being 7-5?

I would take a pile of poop at this point if it could form tackle and/or score touchdowns.
