TomVH: Quick Visitor Update

Submitted by TomVH on July 22nd, 2011 at 1:31 PM

I've gotten a few emails and questions about some visitors coming up so I figured I'd just post it here.

New Jersey ATH Devin Fuller (6'0", 185 lbs, 4 Star) is not visiting for the BBQ. He told me he doesn't have a date set to visit Michigan yet, but he would still like to.

I'm about to run to the doctor [my wife is pregnant, hopefully finding out the sex today] but I have a text and call in to DT Ondre Pipkins (6'3", 325 lbs, 4 Star) to see if he's decided to visit for the BBQ. I'll update that when I get back.

Iowa WR Amara Darboh (6'2", 190 lbs, 4 Star) is not visiting for the BBQ either, he has a team camp. He is potentially visiting on Monday, but he said it's not 100% yet. I'll have more from him in the Weekly Update.

Sam Webb said this morning that he'll be there. 

I would like he, O'Brien, and Pipkens to all commit on the spot.  Then Wormley, Burbridge, and Diamond and let's go home.  Yes I know the coaches say they only want 1 DT.

I'm with you, as well as True Blue, who added Dunn to your six. A spot I am less certain about is WR.


Does anyone know anything about Amara Darboh? He is supposed to be good, but I had no idea that we were in on him at all. Can we sneak him past ND?


Or do we prefer Stanford or Burbridge anyway? Gotta love these little dilemmas. And we might still be in the running for Washington - he's really played things close to the vest so far . . . .

Thanks for the dedication despite your more important appointment.  I hope all goes well.  Sorry to hear about the guys that won't be there.  Sounds like they will miss out on quite a show on the new scoreboard.

I think it'd be cool if in 25 years my kid could be on Mgoblog getting recruiting updates from your TomVH (Jr), DomVH, RonVH, or MonVH (Mon for Monica, couldn't think of a girl names that rhymed)

Congrats on BabyVH!! Family first, Tom, thanks for the updates. Too bad that Fuller can't come, but let's hope Pipkins can show up. Tension between him and O'Brien for that spot?

Congrats on the little one!  Perhaps you can go with Eddie Van Haaren.  Would sound like an oriental guy trying to say "Eddie Van Halen"...  (um, it's not racist because I'm Asian?)

Congrats Tom. As a guy I think you'd want to have a little boy but as someone with two young daughters let me assure you they are awesome as well

Nice to know your home team is growing too.  Big moment, this.  Leading to many more.

I find myself wanting a Devin Fuller commitment more than one from any other position.  I want to ensure that we'll both become 'Quarterback U' again and forever avoid having to start a Nick Sheridan again.
