I also went to ogemaw, and I can only think of one other athlete that went on to play D1 anything and that was for baseball to CMU. West Branch is very small and for anyone to play at SVSU is a big deal and an all-conference shoe-in. Getting a Michigan offer for him is pretty nuts around here. And btw, I just saw him in the gym the other day and he has the frame and agility to be a D1 athlete for sure.

Makes sense. Thanks Tom.

05/01/2009 - 1:02am Tom I agree with what you are

Tom I agree with what you are saying. I am just asking why offer someone with less talent and fill the schollie so early in the recruiting process? I completely understand that we are not going to get the top player on our board at every position and expect there to be a lot of 3-star recruits in a class. I just don't get the timing of the offers this early in the process. Can we recruit someone like Dileo without offering him so that we don't use up the schollie in case someone like Shaw(example) committed? So we could then use the schollie on another position because we are stacked with numbers at WR in this class. We had a better class than WV Tom. You yourself said that it is ridiculous to think that a recruit could be ok for WV but not for M, so I thought you'd be happy with a WV level class, not that we HAVE a WV level class. Don't get me wrong WV was very successful in bowl games against major programs with better classes on paper. It all matters what happens on the field regardless, but as far as recruiting is concerned help me out with why we use the schollie so early.

05/01/2009 - 12:11am Ok Tom. I agree with much

Ok Tom. I agree with much that you said and appreciate your opinion, Though I do think there is a major difference between the winningest team in college FB history and WVU. If you are ecstatic about having a West Virginia level recruiting class at M than good for you (RRs last class had 7 2 star commits). You would think we could possibly haul more being the winningest program in college football history. I do think RR has been to a rodeo or two which makes sense why I said I have the utmost faith that we will be playing in BCS bowl games for years to come. Makes sense what you said about elite talent not being scared away by Drake, I wouldn't be either if I were Mack Brown. I agree that RR is great at evaluating talent for his system, what I'm saying is there is BETTER slot talent available and we already have 6 WR commits. What do we have 12 scholarships to give out to WRs? It's surprising that a recruiting guru like yourself says that Shaw and Dunkley "don't matter" because we don't lead for them 9 months before signing day. So I guess we should stop recruting anybody out there out of our 120+ offers that don't have us leading 9 months before signing day.

04/30/2009 - 10:01pm True, I know we are looking

True, I know we are looking good for some prospects on D, but look at the Travis Williams situation, he was offered and then committed to the coaching staff but RR told him to call sometime later (I don't remember how long he said to wait to call him) to make sure he has made the right decision. Why not wait until September to offer him in the first place if you have better talent that you hope to get? If Jeff Luc was in the same scenario as Williams, coming up for a visit and committing, I HIGHLY doubt RR would tell him to "wait on it for a few months and give me a call".

Ohio is the only state that starts and ends with a zero.

03/20/2009 - 6:49pm Hope they roll out the red

Hope they roll out the red carpet for this guy. Getting the number one prospect would be nice, and he is from the midwest, so it appears that it may be doable. Hopefully we can stay on his short list and he isn't just doing a tour of a bunch of schools (a la Jelani Jenkins last year).

03/17/2009 - 12:11am Good to hear. I'm definitely

Good to hear. I'm definitely glad he isn't so shsallow to go to OSU because he likes the color red.
