TomVH: BBQ Update

Submitted by TomVH on July 31st, 2011 at 12:11 PM

I thought I'd create a thread for this just to do a mini update for now. The BBQ is from 11-3 today. Some recruits area already there, some are still on their way. 

Here's an updated list of visitors that I have confirmed. Caleb Stacey sent me a text saying he decided not to go because he has two a days tomorrow, and he was likely going to be Kaleb Ringer's ride so he's not going either. Not a big deal, but Ringer sent me a text that said he would have really liked to hang out with the recruits.

Monty Madaris isn't coming, so my note about Michigan having the potential to get a wide receiver soon will probably be pushed back. I'm not expecting anything out of Chesson today, but visits can sometimes change things so never say never. He told me he would still like to take some more visits. Michigan is in good shape with both Madaris and Amara Darboh right now too, so we'll see how everything plays out.

There is potential for a few things to happen today. Key word is potential. There is a chance with Pipkins, Wormley (don't be surprised if he doesn't do it today), and 2013 DB Dymonte Thomas said he's thinking about things. I wouldn't be surprised if he waited, but he did tell me that he really likes it at Michigan so we'll see. 

I'm also not expecting anything from the other 2013 kids. WR LaQuon Treadwell told me that he would probably wait if Michigan offers him today. He want to talk it over with his mom first. Wyatt Shallman said he's also likely going to wait awhile before making a decision.

Like I said visits can change things either way, so none of this is 100%. We'll se what ends up happening.

So it appears there was a good chance of Madaris committing on this visit. Is the
<br>fact that he us not coming mean he has changed his mind, maybe to take other visits, or could he just not make it?

Well done, Tom. Very encouraging, even if it doesn't result in any commits. Today should at least help us with a lot of recruits. Still hoping on some Hello: posts though!

Are you thinking the coaches might offer guys like Reschke or Treadwell? I was under the impression that this was more just a meet and greet, not really an evaluation time. But do they have enough tape to offer these guys?


July 31st, 2011 at 12:30 PM ^

I don't think they'll get offered today either, but I'm not sure. Reschke was just offered by MSU, so there's a chance they might offer too. I'm under the impression it's more meet and greet as well. I wouldn't be surprised if they did throw Reschke an offer out afterwards though.

I bet Pipkins commits today, and probably Wormley. I would almost be surprised if Pipkins doesn't commit since he's been so open on Twitter about how much he likes Michigan.


July 31st, 2011 at 12:48 PM ^

Just another update. Like I said none of this is 100%, but don't be surprised if Wormley waits to make his decision at a later date.

Darn it!  I wanted to see Madaris get on campus and see him commit.  I've been taking some serious shots from my spartan friends about Burbridge, they think they're getting Madaris for sure.  I want to see them crushed when we snag him.  Come on down Monte!

TomVH is the man.   It makes my day when I see a post/tweet updating the status of Michigan recruits.   His professionalism is something that exudes Michigan

or has the hype surrounding Wormley really diminished. It seems like not many schools are really going after him. I don't know if that's just because he's considered either an OSU or UM guy, but it doesn't seem like people are really excited about him. I don't know anything about evaluating talent, but on the "hype" factor alone it seems like if we miss on him it's not a huge deal.
