Sorry For The Misunderstanding I Was Only On A MLK Trip And Did NOT Commit to University Of Michigan


That should clear that up.

*Punctuation etc. left original in the tweet

I, on the other hand, have committed to the University of Michigan, and I remain very deeply committed.  Of course, I am 40 yrs. old and would be rather useless on a football field, but that's beside the point.

He was talking to other recruits saying he was going to play with them next year. I think he thought he received an offer and didn't. Feel kind of bad for the kid, but he should have probably talked to the coaches before saying what he did.

Or this kid is like the one guy that commited to Cal without any offers.

Or this kid just wanted attention, at which point I do not feel sorry for him in the slightest.

Yes, one of those three is how I feel.

I dunno. His twitter background has a picture of the scoreboard on it and he retweeted a bunch of people congratulating him on committing to Michigan. I believe we have another odd story on our hands.

It looks like he's now deleted the tweet calling it a misunderstanding, but he has changed his bio to no longer include anything about a commitment. But he still has all those tweets congratulating him RT'd.

of stalking and sensationalism = women who obsess about every Kardashian tabloid cover. 

And, yes, I know, I clicked on this thread. I enjoy this blog and will typically click on and give every post at least a quick scan if I have time. But this whole mini-firestorm over this kid is pretty pathetic.
