Poggi Deciding Soon

Submitted by Son of Lloyd Brady on June 1st, 2012 at 3:01 PM
Per Steve Wiltfong at 247sports:

"Michigan has been recruiting him very hard for a long time, as has Alabama," Biff Poggi, Henry's father and coach, told Steve Wiltfong of Wolverine247.com. "Those are the two schools recruiting him the hardest. He really respects both of the coaching staffs."

Poggi also listed Tennessee and Texas A&M among his final four. And, he is ready to commit.

"I think he'll make a decision soon," his father said. "Within the next 30 days."



Very interesting considering Hurst visits tomorrow.

Did Sam really say this?  Do you by chance have a link?  I recall Sam saying something to the effect that we are looking good for Poggi, but nothing saying that he thinks Poggi will be blue.

Looking good really only means we have a good chance, like 30% chance plus.  Not that we lead.


WIth that said, i sure hope Sam did say that.  Would love to have both Poggi and Hurst but i think Poggi is all Bama.

Just my opinion, but I do like our chances with Poggi. His parents really seemed to love the visit and the coaches, and Alabama wants him as a tight end. I think it's very close, but I just think Michigan might have a 55/45 edge.

And no, I did not think Michigan would get Levenberry, so I don't think every prospect goes our way.

I could believe all the pro-Poggi banter but after Levenberry/Garnett/Isaac/et. al. I have become very skeptical of recruits who visit other schools and commit soon after. Rarely does that seem to work out for the previous "leader" (M). Here's to preparing for the worst and hoping for the best!.....

No he did not.

That window is open back there. That was his head going out as the car rolled. I saw this film in a mandatory seat belt safety class I took for all the wrong reasons.

I wish this was about recruiting. Peace to this guys' family - that he didn't die in vain.  I always think about this prior to buckling up...which I guess is the point.

I'm not doubting the kids talents, but let's be real here.  He will have a much better shot at making some noise at Michigan than he will at Bama.  Southern D line recruits are freaks.
