Recruiting Potent Potables

Submitted by TomVH on January 19th, 2009 at 10:30 PM

- I talked to Je'Ron Stokes today. He said his visit went great again. He liked what he saw at Michigan, he just wants to take his time. Nothing new, but a good sign no less.

- Ike Bell told me today that he and Fitz Touissant have been working out together everyday except Sunday. They want to make sure they're ready to compete. For the record, I really like Bell, I hope he does well.

- For all of you with facebook, here's a link to Devin Gardner's new highlight video. For some reason he tagged me in it, I'd like to say I'm number 7, but I'm not....

- Travante Stallworth is back from his trip to South Carolina. The vibe I got was that he liked it, but Michigan seemed to still be more impressive. I think the only competition is his visit to Auburn. He just told me that Coach Rodriguez and Jackson will be there for an in home visit on Wednesday, which is also a good sign. It shows him how committed they are to him. It will also give his family a personal setting and feel to who they are.

He and Justin Turner have been very quiet. I like that. There's no reason to flaunt yourself for attention, wich is what a lot of these kids do. I just like the way he goes about his business. He's not the highest rated guy, but he's always been confident in what he can do, and seems like he's willing to work hard to get where he wants to be. It's hard to explain, because you can't hear what they say. I look at a lot of what they say, and how they say it to get my opinion.

Obviously, seeing their quotes is not the same as hearing them. It's like you ask a kid how the visit to Michigan goes, and he says: "Great. I loved it." What we read and what you heard, are completely different animals.

You can tell a lot from a conversation by reading things like tone (which obviously doesn't translate well on the internet), and other clues...like when they bring up things you didn't even ask them about.

Thanks again.

I really loved the elusiveness and speed that Gardner showed off in that highlight video. It would be FANTASTIC for the program if we could land that kid next year.

"I can read, Trebek. That says Anal bum cover. I've spent five years of my life trying to invent an anal bum cover, failing to do so is my greatest regret."

"I'll take Famous Titties for 400."

"Titles, Famous Titles."

"Damn!"

"And the answer is: This movie title is taken from the name of the book 'Gone With The Wind.' Mr. Sean Connery."

"Dolly Parton!"

"Titles, Mr. Connery. Not titties."

"Not a fan of the ladies, are you Trebek?"

Gardner looks good, good footwork, quick release, strong lower body able to break arm tackles, strong arm seems to make most of the throws, needs to work on hitting the WR in stride but all and all could be a great QB at the next level would look GREAT in the Winged Helmet.
