OT: Jordan Payton to UCLA (wha??)

Submitted by Bo Knows on February 1st, 2012 at 2:00 PM

He ended up signing with UCLA, he was committed to 3 schools previously, including Washington which he committed to YESTERDAY!  Wonder what caused the switch..

Probably a good thing Michigan didn't hitch it's star to him then. The last time we cast our lot with a 4* recruit fresh off committing to multiple schools he was gone within 8 months (Chris Barnett).

I kind of feel sorry for guys like him.  Someone close to him needs to be telling him not to say he is going to school "X" if he hasn't really made up his mind yet.  There's no law that says you can't keep quiet until signing day (or even afterwards) if you simply aren't sure.

Considering he's already sent in his LOI to UCLA that would be a neat trick.

UCLA was after him hard and one of his high school team-mates(Ishmael Adams) is going there this year, too.  He thought he wanted Cal and then Lupoi left and the other PAC-12 programs went after him hard.  

I think in the end his family may have felt Washington was too far away and UCLA has had some pretty crazy momentum with it's class lately.  They signed three wide receivers today alone.

Listen guys, I live here in So Cal and this has been going here w him for over a yr. He was a "solid Michigan Commit" until his parents got into his ear and told him they didnt like him playing so far away. Hence all West Coast schools started to pounce, I like the kid but were better off without the drama. Coach Hoke is bringing in very high character kids that have a nasty streak to them, I'm glad we got Norfleet to sign as he w be huge for us in the future.

<br>Side note- I bet Brionte will be kicking himself on the ass earlier then most think once next yr's # 1 RB is on campus along w Ball, that's 3 RB's that could all be Horses but w Meyers O they will all bs splitting.. To bad Dunn you could of been a Michigan Man that ran forever here behind our Line!
