...a guy who lightens the mood. I suspect he can be very blunt as well. He'll be one of the leaders of the team. And Brady Hoke is precisely the kind of coach who can let Ondre be Ondre. Another benefit if having a coach who does not believe it is all about him.

His personality coupled with whatever all the scouts saying he is real good could end up him being a fantastic recruiter on campus.  Book it!  From now on I will call him Ondre the Recruiter.

The fact that Pipkins finished his impression with "that gets me fired up everytime I go to the Big House" was the best part. Tells me he already loves his coach and wants to play for Michigan. I can't wait. Those 3 might be the best 3 of this class, I personally think this class is going to be the one that REALLY puts Michigan back where it belongs.

Also, the fact that Pipkins remembered every line of the speech, including the reporters questions...that's awesome.

talks about being a Michigan man check

values his education check

feeling "home" at Michigan check

will make press conferences incredibly entertaining the next 4 years check

I can't wait to see him wear the winged helmet.  He may joke around some, but if you see the whole interview, he talks about the coaches at Michigan helping him become the best defensive tackle in the country.  If he truly wants to be the best in the country, coach Mattison, Montogomery, and Hoke will absolutely help him get there.

I don't watch that many of these clips, but that one was amazing in its awesomeness. Pipkins is a crackup.

Thanks for posting this - I would have missed it otherwise.
