Maybe you forgot to include a link to Matt’s article.

So who’s committing to Michigan this week fellas?

I don’t think they take Girard without giving Carton first turn down.

Jalen Wilson just visited.

I’m going DJ Carton to Michigan maybe even on a suprise visit.


#687

It’s great to be linked to top talent or be in their top 5, because they aren’t going to come here if you aren’t. That being said, it is still a long way from a LOI.


#688

Couldn’t have said it better myself. Links and visits are good, but like you said, it’s all about getting the LOIs signed and actually getting those top-tier players to play here in Ann Arbor.


#689

Are we definitely getting a commit this week? If so, very intriguing. Like your thoughts on Carton if that’s a possibility.


#691

Understood, but he seemed to be 100% on this.

Webb put in a CB for Carton to Michigan yesterday and he was holding off vs others. Seems like something is up.


#692

Idk, Carton committing right now just would be so weird. Why not wait until the visit?


#693

Could be a suprise visit this week? Who knows. Nothing would suprise me.


#694

I know that @umhoops is a busy man, but I am going to make a shameless plug to update the recruiting visits page. It would make it easy to track when guys like Carton are visiting and when we start getting some 2020 guys in house.


#695

Good call. Need to do a better job updating that. Peak visit season is usually in the fall with officials and such, but I’ll work on that.


#698

There’s supposed to be a not there. Sorry I do a lot of posting on my breaks on my phone so I don’t have much time to edit/ read them for auto corrects and there. Basically I think Wilson is a great take and a great fit but I think he’s a straight 4 star in the 50-75 range. 5 star and top 30 is too high.


#699

I always just called us big blue as well when I’m excited or talking them up. Is that a Kentucky thing? I didn’t think it was a set moniker for anyone , just one of Michigan’s colors and a great program so I put it together


#700

If he says a commitment is coming, I believe it.


#703

Imagine The possibilities of a class of McDaniel and carton. That would be something serious. Both are great athletes who can really push the pace and finish. Those two with our 18 class would get us a title I’m convinced


#706

Yeah, people get sensitive about that. “Big Blue” is Kentucky, the NY Giants, or IBM. Michigan is just “Blue”, as in “Go Blue” as opposed to “Go Big Blue”.


#707

I’m going Wilson.


#714

Back on topic here fellas. No need to debate the merits about other sites, past football rumors or whatever else.


#715

Interesting, I knew about the giants, but i
Did not know about Kentucky calling themselves that. nor did I know that Michigan fans would be offended.


#716

I live in the Lexington area, and every once in a while I’ll see or hear folks complaining they’re big blue and not um. It’s funny to me because um fans don’t claim nor care about it. Then again, a lot of what UK fans do is funny to me.


#717

Putting everything together I would be shocked if Jalen Wilson isn’t the rumored potential commit
