I don't think it would hurt our chances with Dee, they'd be used differently. 

I'm not sure of our chances, it's tough. If I had to guess, I would say he's not going to pick Michigan. He's another kid, like DeAnthony, if the situation was different he probably already chosen Michigan. I don't think he'll pick Michigan, but I've seen stranger things happen. 

Who knows what happened on the most recent visit he took. Fred Jackson might have said some things to him to make him feel more comfortable. Originally he wasn't going to announce until after the season, and has now moved it up, so I'm a little confused here.

...that a consensus 4* running back should never be referred to as "just a bonus."  I know that D. Hart is a great prospect, but it would be awesome to have both of them especially in an offense that often uses 2 RB's at once and at a position where injuries are frequent.  Also, the level of infatuation that people seem to have with D. Hart is, quite honestly, a little weird.

Well yeah it would be awesome to get all 5 star recruits but we all know that is not realistic. I would be thrilled to have both but chance are we won't get both. I would much rather have Hart. I wouldn't be mad if we only got Hayes but Hart is option number one.

Said on the radio last week that he thought his final 2 were ND and Michigan.  With ND leading.   It would be good if RR could get him on campus one more time before the end of the month. 

When he last visited I believe RR was on vacation.

Thanks for the update TomVH.  Let's hope he sees the progress RichRod is making and understands that the future looks bright.

 

Go Blue!

Good find Irish. Interesting tidbit from the article:

But Hayes still plans to visit two of the four closest schools — Northwestern, Michigan, Michigan State and Notre Dame — before his press conference to make sure he's making the right choice.

Let's hope we're one of the final two.
