Considering we have a better offense for him, and he grew up a Michigan fan.  He even referred to Michigan as "we":


"I always had my Michigan (gear??) on whenever we played Ohio State. It was just really funny to be the opposite of everybody."

have seen him play in person 3 times now, once as a sophomore and twice last year as a junior, and the kid runs HARD. reminds me a lot of maurice clarret in high school, minus some speed. the both run hard to the holes, the first person never ever tackles them, and both seem to get 3 more yards than they're supposed to on tough runs.

i've heard around town that he owns several michigan t-shirts and hats and has been a fan for a long time, so there's that. lol

again though, he absolutely manhandled a (very young) warren harding (prescott, diggs, mario, etc.) team. just a man among boys. the last game i saw was delayed by lightning for about an hour. harding was up, maybe 2 minutes left in the game, but howland had the ball.

they came out of the delay and fed de'veon 6 straight times for 60 yards and the go ahead score. literally everyone in the stadium knew who was getting it and likewise what was going to happen.

runs like he has a touch of the Minor rage, i hope he makes the right choice.

Can't remember the last time we won one of these 50/50 splits for a coveted recruit so I'm not holding my breath.  We have two positives in that he's a UM fan and our O is a better fit for him, but two negatives are he lives in Ohio and Urban Meyer's snake oil is like RR's snake oil but faster.

to enroll in an out of state school. does this have any impact on their pro carrer one way or another. would the pro scouts look favorable on a graduate who goes to a school to fit his needs in lieu of playing near home? this can go for bb, hockey or football.
