TomVH: Quick Jarrod Wilson Update

Submitted by TomVH on June 15th, 2011 at 8:56 PM

I spoke with one of the coaches at Buchtel today about Jarrod. They did have the meeting that was planned for tonight. Jarrod is going to take the rest of the week off to reflect on everything and they will then meet back up on Monday and discuss everything further.

They're not sure if that meeting will result in a commitment, but they do believe that Michigan, Penn State, and Notre Dame are the final schools left for him.

are you a ball-hawkin' FS that likes to lay the wood and runs a sub 4.5 40? If so, then Go Blue Jarrod and Jarred!

Actually, we only have room for 1 and the class is filling up fast, so if we rumor Jarred to be committing soon, hopefully Jarrod will have to pull the trigger to keep his spot...

Sure would be nice to get a true safety in this class. I love the way this defense is shaping up under Mattison, let's hope it shows up on the field, and quick!

Call me old but what does GBOD mean? I googled it and all that came up was General Board of Discipleship for the Church of God and I dont think that has anything to do with Jarrod Wilson's recruitment.

They  already have 4 DBs this year, took 4 DBs last year, and 5 DBs the year before that, but Reeves and Wilson rate them in their top choices. Looks like Kelly really loads up in the backfield.

Hoke will have taken 9 in his 2 classes if we pick up another Safety this year. I'd be even further surprised if Hoke took 5 or 6 more next year like Kelly is aiming for, this will be his 3rd ND recruiting class.

Two years ago we took 4 safeties and 3 corners, but we're already down one of each and only one of them (Furman) redshirted.  Last year we took 5 DBs, but the none of them were true safeties, and only one or two of them will be safeties. 

So, if you're a safety commit, you have anywhere from three to five guys at your position in the two classes ahead of you, and two of the guys two years ahead of you did not redshirt.  That's not depth that will scare anyone off.

Nice.  Let's hope he chooses us.  It would probably help significantly if Armani Reeves would commit to PSU in the intervening time.

I really want Wilson.  It'd suck to lose out on him and have to play against him.

Tom ... read over on a Sooner board that GK was in Tuscaloosa today, and heard a rumor just a few minutes ago from someone else that he committed to Bama. Do you know if this is true?

I like how the competitors for Michigan's targeted recruits are mainly top-notch programs. The last few years I've felt like our targets weren't up to the caliber of our toughest competitors.
