2019 - Wing - Jalen Wilson (Offer)


#101

I try not to buy into all the recruiting rumors and hype, but the way things were tracking and rumblings from some of the guys I trust in the recruiting world, had me believing we may get a commitment.


#102

I saw talk that his parent’s wanted him to wait and take other visits before jumping on a decision right away.


#103

Yeah, I saw that on the 24/7 board. Good for them tbh, impulse based commitments obviously work out far less than normal ones.


#104

Do his parents know that we have limited openings?


#105

The mood on Rivals (non-mods, but educated, experienced posters) is doom-and-gloom that it didn’t happen this weekend. That, basically, we’ve seen this movie before and we can expect him to slowly bleed away. Certainly hoping they’re wrong.


#106

If they don’t have any insider info and they’re basing it purely on their hurt feelings then that means nothing.


#107

Yeah, agreed…I wouldn’t have even mentioned if it wasn’t in a gray area somewhere above that kind of typical noise, but to your point, somewhere below direct inside info.


#108

Yeah, obviously him not committing opens the opportunity for him to leave, but from the info going into the visit we know it’s not about him not liking what he saw.


#109

Sam Webb put in a “gut feeling that Michigan thinks they expanded their lead with the visit” thing, I think this is typical Michigan fan insanity from Rivals.


#110

One of many reasons why I cancelled my Rivals subscription. People pan the state of the mgoblog board but the Fort was as bad. I barely posted because it seemed like anyone who wasn’t a longtime poster got ripped to shreds.


#111

It’s funny, I actually think it’s far worse on Scout/247 in general, but…every board has its pros & cons.


#112

Lol, people are saying it’s over because he didn’t commit and wants to see the process through? Seems ridiculous . If I was a recruit and I was 98 percent certain I was going somewhere, I’d finish it out just because. Only happens once In your life. At the very least , see some places I’ve never seen. Wtf, people are crazy.


#113

The fort is where it’s at
