Speculation: Fuller possibly to M?

Take this with a grain of salt and place whatever value you wish. This can probably be chalked up as a complete troll however with the "silent commitment" thread looming over our heads, this might be of some interest.

I was playing Counter Strike, when someone notices my Steam Block M avatar, and asks if I go to the school to which I reply yes. Then he asks if I know his friend Jabrill Peppers, to which I say no, but I know of him. He then tells me his other friend is about to commit to Michigan.

I ask him who his other friend is. He responds, "Jordan Fuller." I proceed to ask him how he knows him, and he said he played football with him. I ponder this new rumor I was just told, and then after a minute I tell him I know a little about Fuller, but that I also heard he's rumored to favor OSU. He responds, "Yea but I think he's down to Michigan or ND."

Not much, but it's a little nugget. He said he was from Jersey, and didnt really say anything about football after that or anything else on the matter. 

Not sure how feasible this would even be. Is Fuller's high school even in close proximity to PC where this alleged friend would know both Peppers and Fuller? I also would like to think he's not trolling as I would imagine he would like to continue the troll and press me further into conversation about it.

Thoughts?

Fun reading even if it doesn't mean much. Hard to glean much out of a convo like that because there's too much hearsay but at least it's not bad news.

I will say, it is a much better start to a post than virtually all of the CC threads had, and far more unusual than the numerous "reading the tea leaves" posts we normally get, the ones where people actually inspect the leaves for actual words, it seems. Even if it turns out to be not true in the end and FUller goes elsewhere, this still gets my votes for most interesting recruiting-related encounter.

Last year Freddy Canteen told me personally we were getting Iman Marshall..........so if that can't even be true i am going to have to put 0 faith in this. I still love the story though !

That was our game in college.  Wait, no it wasn't.  Hadn't been invented yet (unless they had it on the dual IBM 360s we programmed with punch cards).  I guess we just played poker.

the only remotely analagous game to hearts might be bridge.  in hearts you are either trying to take all the hearts + queen of spades (called 'shooting the moon'), or take none of them so that your 3 opponents get the points.  the goal in hearts is to have the lowest points.  if you shoot the moon then your 3 opponents get 26 points added to their score - one point for each card they take that is in the suit of hearts, and 13 points for the queen of spades.  

lots of fun.  hard to play well if you've been drinking though b/c if you are doing it right, you need to count each card that has been played so you know what's left in everybody else's hand, and try to figure out exactly which cards your opponents have based upon the cards they've played in each successive trick.
