If Bama lands Nkemdichie, they will have the #1 class, they may even claim that title without him to be honest.
Sua Cravens has set up his visit for May 28th
Which Midwestern school isn't he visiting? He said he'd visit two of Michigan, Ohio, and Nebraska.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
Last I heard Ohio was out
He's down to UM, Neb and USC.
So basically, he's going to USC.
Surprising a little to me because Borges isn't known as a great recruiter.
Guessing OSU's odds are still at 35% for Cravens.

Did Baximus take over your account?
Guess not the only one that notices that, ha.
I think we have a legitimate shot at Cravens. He wouldn't come on visits to UM and NEB if he wasn't interested. We'll see what happens....not getting my hopes up but I have a good feeling imo
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
Not going to happen.
Sorry ohio...Urban doin work sons. If Fuller comes again....I think we might have a slight chance. I don't like Cravens going to UM before Neb. Wish we were last on his mind. UM better devote all resources and good looking ladies to those 2 days. A visit fit for a king.
About an hour ago...
I never gave out dates or a top 3...
Sorry to bring up past, but I just read somewhere that Sammy Watkins was a SILENT commit? Is that true? I know Dallas was, but not Sammy
It would take a lot of things to go our way to convince Cravens to renege on his eventual commitment to USC.
- USC would have to have an unexpectedly bad season. Preferably with at least 3 losses in the regular season. This would have to create doubt and turmoil in the program.
- Michigan would have to a fantastic, dominating season (starting with a win against Alabama and finishing with a win over Meyer's Ohio) and ending with a B1G championship in the regular season.
- Cravens would have to visit Michigan officially for the MSU game. Maybe with JoJo Mathis. Michigan would then have to crush MSU.
Hence, USC wouldn't be playing in a BCS Bowl game while Michigan would be. And then Michigan would have to win.
Even given all this, I'd say that it'd be 50/50 at best for Michigan (versus USC) heading into NSD.
In fact, to get Fuller we would need VTech and Clemson to have similar underachieving seasons as well. This might happen because FSU is finally primed for a ACC title run.

That's what people on GBW claim but I don't believe it.
I have spoken with people in Florida (the state not the school) and they said that everyone was competing for 2nd place the moment Watkins stepped onto Clemson's campus.
Seems a little low.
Not only that, but the odds will go up when Ohio runs the table this year and wins an AP natty.

michigan has a 0% chance at cravens,larue,fuller,vanderdoes. lets stop talking about them. it aint going to happen. hoke should just stop wasting his time on these guys and use that extra time to go after 2014 dashawn hand and McDowell immediately.
Why are we even going for these top prospects, we should be aiming for 2* already.
I agree. We should only go after prospects with greater than a 60% close rate. Sounds like a RR game plan vs. a Borges' plan. No more Hemingway jump balls. No shots beyond the paint. Please stop...

Yes they say that about all the kids in CA, FL, and TX. I assume you're joking.
But if not:
Did you not like Amani Toomer? How about Anthony Carter? Or maybe a kid named Brady. Or perhaps someone more recent like Denard Robinson?
why are you bringing up where they live. im not saying we shouldn't go after guys from tx fl ca. im saying we should stop going after those 4 guys because they are not coming to michigan regardless of where they are from. its a waste of time.
You must be a scouting guru that can see the future... Don't forget to tell steve,Todd and Clint to not give up their days jobs.
Its never a waste of time for coaches to pursue top end talent, no matter where things "may" stand... This is their job... They have to pursue every avenue of guys that are showing interest... No matter how big or small it may seem, it would be a disservice to not do their due diligence in trying to land that kid... You only sign about 5% of the kids you offer and the coaching staff had been hitting more than missing... There are enough hours in a day for them to look at guys like Su's and Kendall and then still look at Hand and Peppers... The coaches are not stupid.... They get how the process works... Donovan Warren-like situations always keep a small glimmer of hope when I "follow" a kids recruitment, but Ronald Johnson-like situations always keep the "fear" in me... Its a fun game to follow but need to stay as level headed as the guys getting paid for and that have jobs that depend on these kids.
