Willie Henry update

According to Henry himself, he has not committed just yet, so I've taken down the commitment post. There must of been some kind of confusion between him and his head coach, who told Sam Webb that he had committed. A minor setback, but he's still expected to commit sometime between now and NSD.

    3. Chucky -
      You probably don't even know how to clip any thing. Have mommy give you a couple of aspirins and tuck you in bed. You'll feel better in the morning little man.

    6. Hey Thom maybe instead of trying to be a tough guy on a Michigan blog you should keep a better watch out for what your mother is up to. I have her bent over my desk showing her how i use my big blue while she is reading about what you have to say on here.She seems a little disappointed in you. Wow, she can multitask!

    7. Wow Thom, watcha got to say now ?. You were never a multi-tasker - that's why you had your nuts clipped, Sonny Boy.

    8. Ah Chucky. Does your mommy know you snuck out of bed to play with one of you little friends. Little boys like you and your little friend sure have vivid imaginations. Someday maybe you will grow up and be a big boy. but I doubt it. Back to bed with you now Chuckie.
      Nighty night.

  7. Getting low and pathetic......some moron at MGoBlue is reporting Stefon Diggs is a surprise to Michigan......"Off with his head". We are becoming so desperate as a readership. This guy is quoting "a reliable source". Capital "B", Capial "S". There are few accredited and reliable sources out there. I'm okay waiting for news from them to publish.

  8. That thread has been taken down, it was probably our dumb friend Thom on this blog.

  9. GBN,

    He is saying this because it's said the staff went to Good Counsel (Md.) for a visit, but no one has any idea why. Fuller and O'daniel (I believe) both had no idea they were coming but there also has been no word about why they were there. That is what I have read. Probably BS, but hey some people enjoy staying positive, just sometimes way to positive.

  12. This just came out an hour ago from USA Today about Diggs. Michigan wasn't even on the list he was considering


    Good Counsel (Olney, Md.) football coach Bob Milloy said that wide receiver Stefon Diggs is unlikely to sign on Wednesday, the first day of the national letter of intent period for football.

    Diggs, a 6-foot, 185-pound receiver who was a member of the All-USA first team , had 36 catches for 808 yards and scored 13 touchdowns this season.

    "I think he is a little confused right now," Milloy said. "He's got a little bit of a decision to make. He just got back from a visit to Ohio State."

    Diggs' most prominent pursuers include Auburn, California, Florida, Maryland and Ohio State.

    He is ranked No. 8 overall prospect in the country by Rivals.com.

  13. I wonder how much money OSU offered to pay him or if they said they will just let him drive a new car every month.

      Your way of thinking is probably correct. Michigan players have never taken money or lied. The Fab Five era was just a bad dream.
      Right?

    2. Thom just go back to Ohio and lick your friends BUCKNUTS and stay off the Michigan post you really make a fool out of your self but I guess that's what makes a SUCKEYE go on other teams post cuz your school is so damn boring...

  14. This is a nice article on Hoke's recruiting tactics, specifically that he focuses on UM, while not using negative recruiting.

    The recent recruiting news has been upsetting, but reading this article helped ease the pain for me. Just another instance of Hoke's tremendous integrity. Something lost across the college football landscape.

  15. Thom, that's basketball, and I'm pretty sure Michigan still leads osu the rivalry in wins. We destroyed osu in the 90'sup and you guys got us this past decade, so idk where you get off saying Michigan is osu's little brother.

      (1) First of all, I am not Ohio. Have had season tickets to U on M for thee last 21 years. Michigan had very bad years under RR but it was not all his fault. Blame Bill Martin. There was the problem. To busy on his boat when he needed a top flight coach. For losing players blame Carr who signed for them to transfer.
      (2) If your taking money, lying, cheating and etc. it does not mater if it is basketball, football or ping pong. It still is wrong and harms your school and other athletes.
      (3) For the little brother comment,some of the best high school players are in Ohio and Penn. Most are brought up to be Ohio fans. Michigan will be out recruited by Ohio 8 times out of 10. Go back and check the years and see which team ended up with the top recruits.

    1. Hey Guys just stating facts. Kids are kids. Michigan, Ohio, or where ever. They can all make mistakes when it comes to money and all the pressure and prestage involved with playing big time football, basketball or etc. Just because a kid picks another school rather then Michigan don't assume he was, is or will be paid. It's unfair to him and makes those saying it appear ignorant.

      What do you want me to say to your face, that some of the Fab Five players took money and lied about it costing Steve Fisher his job. If you don't know or remember that look it up.

  18. I'm not to upset about the recent weeks events. Almost all of our 2012 class was recruited before the season started. Our coaches recruited these kids from their merits on and off the field. The recent guys we did not get most of them were also ran kids. Granted (Garnett, Reeves, Kozan, and Grant) have a lot of talent on the field but outside of Garnett I really think they were second options and knew it. So although somewhat disappointing not to big of a deal.

    I just watched Willie's highlight video. The kid looks like a stud. It always amaizes me the amount some people put into star ratings. It is just to hard to go by half the time. Some of these kids have not even finished growing yet. Others might not have been coached at all. Within a year or two almost any three star kid can out perform a five star kid by working harder to develop their skill. I just hope that whoever jumped the gun did not blow our chances with him committing to Michigan. I'd really like to see another D-Line guy in this class.

    1. The one thing about a highlight tape is that it only shows the "highlights!" Completely speculating btw, but maybe he has a little of BWC in him, in that he has habitual conditioning problems, motor, and/or work ethic issues. He also may have been another diamond in the rough that Coach Montogomery, Mattison and Hoke LOVED but needed to get some academics in order before an offer was thrown his way. I hope it is the latter, but yes his film looks impressive.

  19. Hoke and crew did a tremendous job recruiting all year. Meyer is a very good recruiter and is on a hot streak as the new name at the big time university. If you would have told me that Michigan would go 10 - 2 with a bowl win and finish with a top 5 recruiting class I would have called that a pretty good year. Hopefully we get Diamond and Henry and that will be a great class.

    I also realize this is probably not going to help but please stop responding to Thom. If he enjoys getting a rise out of Michigan fans on a Michigan recruiting blog by complimenting Ohio and pointing out infractions from almost 20 years ago in a different sport let him have his amusement. Responding just encourages him to keep it up. Meyer is a good coach/recruiter and OSU will always be good at football, just like Michigan, that doesn't mean he can't be Cooper 2.0.

  20. I know this is off topic but, I'm tired of hearing how Meyer is such a good coach and recruiter. The dude is a cracked egg. 3-5 years from now when he still has not won the Big Ten or a NC he will be hiding behind his bed while someone calls the ER for him. He should of let it go and stayed with the family.

    1. With all due respect, @IllinoisBlue, Meyer has a very proven track record as both a coach and a recruiter. He is good at both of those components of his job. One of the major reasons for burn out/health issues was that he lost both coordinators in the same off-season and each of them took at least one assistant from Florida with them. Meyer filled those positions, but ended up taking on too much of the responsibility himself and he couldn't handle it. I am not a fan of his just like I am not a fan of Woody Hayes, but I do respect their ability to coach and win football games. All that being said, I would take a passionate Michigan Man like Brady Hoke 10 out of 10 times!

  24. The best place to learn Chinese online is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to learn Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin online lessons and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
