2" makes Larue and Allen different players. Allen is taller than Hemingway.
I just want the next 123 days to hurry up and get over with.
If you're right then why does'nt Borges go after other shorter faster guys. He's not. All the targets are tall except larue. How many guys have they offered under 6ft? 1. There are a lot of big burners available. Also, they are now looking at a couple new offers. Both are over 6'2" and fast. You can't argue with the facts. The facts are the offers made. Either provide proof that we like sub 6ft guys or concede. We have some on the roster recruited by RR but not from Hoke.

The coaching staff is looking for a slot WR that is a burner. I don't know what you want me to tell you, but slot guys are usually in the 5'10 to 6'1 range. RR's slot guys are different, totally different system which called for just little speedsters, if RR was still the coach Dennis Norfleet would have had an offer much earlier in the process and would have been an APB/Slot ninja. The slots in Al Borges' system are in the range I mentioned earlier, which is the reason Larue was offered. Also, Larue is 5'11.5", he isn't that far off from 6'
You and GoBlueRanger are arguing different points but they are similar enough that I think the arguments are getting mixed up. So yes we might be offering a player or two that will fit in as a slot, though we haven't offered many. We are however not offering any shorter slot WRs in the mold of Gallon and Dileo.
Uncle newt said that Larue doesn't fit in the offense that Borges wants to run. I was making the point that the coaches want a slot in this class.
They might look different than RR's recruits, but the slot position will still be recruited.
"Also necessary? A slot receiver. Although the position doesn’t carry the importance it did during the Rich Rodriguez era, Brady Hoke’s staff would like one in this class. Santa Monica (Calif.) four-star Sebastian Larue could be their man. He is hoping to take a visit to Ann Arbor sometime this summer."

I love that hoke and co. are recruiting variety at every position, they definetly want big outside recievers but aren't overlooking slot guys that have good speed, I feel like the more variety you have at skill positions the better chance of finding a mismatch wih every team we play
Eddie Vanderdoes tweeting about his trip to Oregon...definitely looks like it will be very hard to pull him from there

GREAT time in Oregon. Couldn't of went any better. People are very respectful out there too. Loved the whole trip.
People still think we have a legit chance at him? Not going to happen.
I guess we will have a chance if he takes a visit. Until then I will say that he is most likely going to stay out west.
Between Oregon and USC, it's gonna be really hard to get prospects from the west.
Looks like Poggi recently visited Alabama. I guess he could still finish things up soon if that was the last visit he needed to take.
I hope so. I want him in this class.
Do work Kyle!
Texas WR Massington wants to take officials to Michigan, ND, and USC
I recall someone mentioning that if he receives a USC offer then he is essentially a done deal to USC because he grew up in California and wants to leave Texas.
Still, good news I suppose.

Yep a USC poster brought that up. Hopefully Shane can work his magic.
I was focused on size and you on slot guys.
Nonetheless, Larue is a special talent. He could be the next AC ( 5'11") or Desmond. These guys excelled on returns and as WRs...especially after the catch. Those two have the highest TD % per catch in Michigan history. So if he commits I'd be just as excited as any of the other guys I've mentioned at WR.
Lets agree in that...

The coaches visited Trinity HS in Kentucky to see Hatcher, Quick, Travis Wright, and Ryan White. We watched Wright throw and have not given up on White.
What about Quick?
What about him? He listed Quick after Hatcher and before Wright.
They visited his high school did you read what I posted or just saw Quick
There is a Bucknuts thread in which a couple posters speculate about Kyle Kalis not qualifying...I know it isn't related to 2013 recruiting, but I thought I would post it in here. The guy who started the thread has no source whatsoever, and is looking for dirt on Kalis. I don't understand why anyone would spread a rumor like that. The worse part is that their "mods" are letting the thread stay up. It is ignorant of them to do that, but what would anyone expect from Ohio State fans?
