Agree. And it seems silly to keep arguing about it. The coaches tried to pull another top TE late in the 2012 class but just couldn't get one they wanted. And they are actively continuing to pursue TEs for this class, so it seems likely that we will get one more.

Totally agree with you Frankie.
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
Well we are just gonna have to agree to disagree. Coaching staff tried to take another TE last year and I bet they take another this year. And if UM took JUCOs, Id bet theyd take some tight ends there too. Your logic on building depth at a position would hold true if we had ample tightends from the RR era. Since we really dont, thats why I feel the way I do about the postion. Some wont pan out, some may change position. Time will tell.
Check out my 2 deep of UM's base 4-3 under defense, let me know your thoughts. Last updated: 3/28/12
but you said it yourself, relying on freshmen is not a good idea. Anybody we get is going to be a freshmen and won't necessarily contribute more then the guys we already have. What they needed was another TE two years ago. Yes the coaches are still recruiting TEs but that doesn't necessarily mean we get another one.
Correct. I did say "You dont want to count on a freshman..." and thats why I also said "...but at least a 260lb freshman would have more physical capability to do so."
I don't think we are even recruiting any 260 lb TEs so ...
fwiw- there is a post by an admin on BuckeyePlanet saying he is hearing Gedeon will be visiting Stanford over Easter break. Take it for what its worth- no idea if he has real info or not, but generally that site is pretty good.
Maybe we turned down Gedeon.
I doubt that. Worst case scenario, he realizes he has time and that he has a spot at UM.
Edit: Ok hes listed at 240lb but close enough. Im done arguing though, Its 5oclock in Meeeechigan and Im leaving work and im gettin _____ tonight! You guys can have fun filling in that blank behind my back.

I think there may have been some truth to the rumor that we take McCray or Gedeon, not both. WIth spots getting tight 3 LBs might not be an option. Especially if they want 2 more WRs, one more TE(I don't want one more TE but it appears the coaches do), one more RB, one more CB, add in the LB and that already puts us at 20 which is projected the lower limit to how many we take. Add in two DL, all of a sudden 3 LBs is a luxury.
Maybe the coaches know something we don't... For example, what if they were confident in getting Isaac and Smith? Would that make them hesitate with their current LB plans?
disagree. You add two RBs and you fill a spot. At this point I think OL an LBs are the strongest position over the last two years (assuming we take 2 LBs), which is why we are telling LBs and OL we are full.
Think we need more DL not LB's
Conley comitting tmrw
Might want to check out Gereon Conley's twitter page.
Yep, he says he's verbally committing tomorrow. Doesn't get much clearer than that.
Why wouldnt post a link?
Not really surprising though.
We already have a RB committed in Wyatt Shallman. No matter what you say the coaches already told him he is going to be a RB so that is what he is going to be.
Shallman will enter college as a RB, but if he is already around 250-260 as a Junior, it will be unlikely he sticks at RB his entire career. Name a 270+ pound RB besides Brandon Jacobs or Duckett, and those guys were a lot faster and agile than Shallman at this stage
It all depends on how much weight Shallman puts on the first year or so in the program
Gareon Conley @xx_WellDone_3
Verbally committing tomorrow .. #YOLO
huh? What does that have to do with Smith or LBs?
We already have a RB committed we aren't going to take 3 RBs in this class. One of Smith or Isaac.
