2020 Recruiting Notes


#315

He’s staying on campus today. Great sign he’ll grab an offer imo.

Shows a lot of interest on his part to stay an extra day to see campus and not just take in a game.


#316

Matt D said he left after today’s visit without an offer.


#317

Oh boy. That’s how you reel in the big fish. Did he take the academic tour?


#318

I’m hoping that just means that they don’t have his academic transcripts yet and the offer will be coming. If not, I don’t really understand it.


#319

No full academic tour… he was feeling under the weather.


#320

Probably not a great sign if he didn’t do the academic tour after making the trip all the way out here (knowing that it’s a pre-requisite to an offer). Unless he was feeling really sick as opposed to what I think of as “under the weather.”


#321

I would say not being 100% for an official visit is a bad sign. On not taking the tour, it’s impossible to parse exactly how sick he was.


#322

Hard to say. He flew all the way from California to Louisville, then Ann Arbor. He wouldn’t be the first person to get worn down and catch a winter flu. Still, he said he wasn’t 100% sure if he would make it back for an official, so I guess he still needs to sort through his options. Not a hot n heavy scenario though. Typical 5*.


#323

Can speculate but who knows, it is mentioned on the other board that it is a similar situation to Maxey last year. Hope this kid gets the offer sooner than later, Yaklich has known him for a long time.

Anyone got any guesses on who gets the next offer?


#324

If Burnett isn’t a likely option, that’s all the more reason to get serious about Jayden Stone. I’m a bit miffed that we don’t seem to be recruiting him with any tenacity. There was a time when Beilein would have been all over a kid like that and Stone seemed to signal interest in Michigan in an interview a few months ago. Maybe they’re waiting to see what happens with Quinones first.

Louisville offered Stone earlier this month. He’s ranked around 50 by all three services.


#325

Caleb Lohner visited State yesterday, any word if he visited us as well?


#326

I still dont see his language around Michigan being a bad thing, just a thing that will have to be sorted out with time. That said, I am cautious that this will move in Michigan’s favor over time

Michigan : "Michigan was a very good visit. I enjoyed it a lot. I went to the game where they played Michigan State. Unfortunately, they lost but it was still a good game. I had a chance to talk with the assistant coach Luke Yaklich for a bit and I talked to Coach ( John ) Beilein for a bit too and it was a good conversation. It was relatively short because it was before a game but I understand that. The next day I was supposed to go visit the school and academic programs and things like that but unfortunately, I came down with the flu so I couldn’t physically go there. Other than (getting sick) I really enjoyed the visit.”
