Diamond to Auburn

Jordan Diamond has committed to Auburn, best of luck to him there. Michigan's hopes for a 5th offensive lineman are now pinned on Alex Kozan, who will decide between UM, Auburn and maybe Iowa? Does Diamond committing to Auburn help our chances with Kozan? Here's hoping.

  4. So why did we get shut out at years end. I know they can recruit. We got a great class, but to lose on every single kid at the end seemed impossible a month ago and somehow happened. Can it really just be bad luck?

  5. ..., Diamond waiting 2 extra days says alot. If you need a special spotlight, maybe your not a Michigan Man. I hope Alex Kazon realizes this and jumps on this train because it going places!!!

    1. Are you a Michigan Man? Would a Michigan Man rip an 18yr old kid for choosing a different school other than Michigan for football? He waited 2 days because that is what is coach wanted the kids to do.

    3. Wasn't ripping the kid, but you have to agree an 18 year old kid isn't solely making this decision by himself. Parents, HS coaches and administrators as well as potential college coaches have a serious influence on what will be a very important decision.
      Just thought he would have a brighter future here than there!
      Go Blue

    1. Yeah they say within the next 36 hrs. but it might be before that anyhow... If Kozan really is thinking about going Blue it shouldn't take long......

  12. Okay people let's quit knocking every kid who doesn't commit to Michigan. Literally 30 minutes ago people are on here saying how much we could use him then he doesn't commit and he's called selfish for wanting spotlight! It's simple good luck to Diamond and we move on!

    1. Thank you! good grief. Its a kid making a choice.

  13. You gotta be kidding me. Grow up and act like grown men. Some people on here. Really...Huge mistake...based on what. I think Benji needs to set up an I.Q. test that has a minimum entrance score to be allowed to write on this blog. Then we could eliminate the trash on here and have some intelligent conversations.

    I find it funny that you want to talk about a kid...yes a kid like that. Meanwhile I read that a friend of mine has a son who is being seen at U of M hospital. Today he got to see a bunch of the players on the football team who are visiting the sick kids there. That is what Michigan football is all about. Act like you know what is actually important because the guys you cheer for on Saturday in the fall...those guys actually get it.

    1. Yes, it was an emotional response after waiting with hopeful anticipation..., but lets see where Michigan is in 4 to 5 years vs Auburn.., wish Diamond best of luck - Michigan will be in a better place.

  14. Right now UM is 0 for 5 on resent recruits so I am not getting my hopes up for Kozan. He always had a spot at UM if he wanted it so why wait if you want to go to UM. If coach Hoke has not already call Gibbs and offered him he will by morning so Kozan needs to make up his mind before Hoke pulls his offer. Coach Hoke wants UM to be your first choose not your last choose.

    3. Justin thanks for the spell check. It was late and I have had a long week. Like hitting a wild boar with my car. And that was the least of my problem this week.

  16. I like the IQ test idea. You know the OSU moles would never get through! Here's me keeping my fingers crossed for Kozan. He really is the best fit for our needs. Diamond, while I like him and believe he will be a great talent for Auburn, was really a bit of a luxury at this point. We'll get high quality in the 13 class. Good Luck Diamond!

  17. Did anyone happen to see Michigan Basketball commit Zak Irvin's game to night the kid have like 23 points in the first half or 2nd quarter I think it was but anyway he's a commit for the class 2013 and looks like a good one at 6'5".... Sam Webb Tweeted it....

    1. 1 of our '13 recruits had a quad double last night too.

    2. I think he had another triple double tonight as well, I believe he is a PG too. It's early but he is looking like a pretty good future replacement for Burke.

  18. I'm guessing Auburn got the checkbook out to lure Diamond away from the Midwest.
    Probably did the same with Kozan. That's why he couldn't pull the trigger on signing day. If they aren't bleeding Blue don't want 'em anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well I'm kinda disappointed I was hoping Mr Diamond went Blue. I wish him the best. I guess now I'm hoping Mr Kozan the best too in making the right choice and going Blue.

    Most importantly, now that this is almost over I really can not wait to start with the 2013 class. I know we have 2 great commits all ready. The mid-west seems loaded with talent for 2013. We might not have 25 in next years class but I am thinking it will be as good or better than the 2012 class.

  23. Gibbs wouldn't be a bad addition. He's a big dude and with time and development 3 stars can be just as good as 5 stars. This was a great class, I love our D-Line and linebackers. We added some true safeties, and a great CB. Our O-line is gonna be bad ass and we got a couple of bigger receivers which we need. So what if we struck out on some sprinkles for our mammoth sundae, it's still a great sundae. GO BLUE!!

  24. Joe Bolden is the sleeper in this year's class...gonna be a stud and the LB we have been missing for the past 4 years.

    1. I wouldnt consider a 4* early enrollee a sleeper. He's just a stud lol he will be good. I wouldnt be surprised if he takes morgan's spot

  25. wasnt the end to the 12 class that i was expecting, but we still have multiple future studs in this class. GO BLUE

  26. I am very happy with this class. The only reason I wanted Diamond and Kozan in this class was for the depth UM needs at O line. UM did what they needed to do with this class. Fill holes and reload at other positions. And they did that.

    UM had a couple of walk on's last year. I think there name's were Glasglow and there was a weight lifter are they still with the team?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yeah It would have been nice to get Diamond and yes this class is really great but we do need Kozan in this class for depth at center and Kozan might even start if he can grasp the offense quickly but man I do love this class tho...........

    ReplyDelete
  28. What I believe is most frustrating for everyone is that we had a "really great class" a month + ago. If we could have delivered in that last month, we may have had the best class in the nation. That being said, this is a really great class and I am looking forward to competing for a B10 championship.

    ReplyDelete
  29. The class rankings I really don't care about it's the talent I want an that's what we have and IF we can add Kozan we will only add more talent to the pile the we already have here......
