If they turn down Isaac or Smith because they have Shallman committed as a RB that would be lame.

I think Poggi is visiting next weekend according to scout homepage.
This may be an unpopular opinion but I was not impressed by Henry Poggi's tape. I know that there were a few others who were not impressed but chose to not voice their opinions.
IMO, he is like Tommy Schutt - as in (grossly) overrated.
I also had a chance to speak with my contact in Baltimore and he said that Poggi was not impressive in games. He was actually very surprised that Poggi received offers from elite programs.
He also had a few other things to say but I'll release those tidbits in good time.

I'm guessing you're talking about Wyatt Shallman. He is much closer to a FB than a RB.
Moreover, I think DeVeon Smith is too talented to turn away.
He reminds me of RVB, being highly rated but not overly athletic. Seems like he will be a good run stopper though and will occasionally get to the QB. If any staff can get him to the elite level he has the potential to get to, it's this one.
Yeah the coaches are recruiting him as a RB so they aren't going to bait him in telling him he is a RB then change their minds. Borges wants him as a Brandon Jacobs type back.
I wasn't very impressed either. He seemed small and wasn't as dominant as his ranking would suggest.
However, there is a reason numerous top schools are after him. and there is a reason for his high ranking.
JC said last week that Poggi would be droping when the newest rankings our released. Don't know if this has happened yet.
Regardless he is a very good player or else he wouldn't have the offers he does.
Yeah I know, don't take it as shooting the messenger. I don't understand why they are doing a rankings update right now though there is nothing new to go off from.
Levenberry is moving down too
Just wanted to say that I believe Poggi's coach (I actually think it's his father?) is known for inflating offers. I don't doubt that Poggi has some good offers, but the actual number might be questionable.
More recruits get reviewed so everything gets shuffled and as new guys are placed.
And i'm pretty sure Poggi was one of our earliest 2013 offers so coaches must like him.

Yeah with prospects on the OL and DL I trust the coaches on and won't question them.
Well that was annoying, after the Poggi talk I looked up his video and it was 2/3 offensive plays. Looks like if all else fails we could move him to TE/Uback.
Anyways he looked strong, mean and had a motor. Didn't look super explosive though.
I felt the same way about his tape but elected to not say anything. I figured the people that have evaluated him know far more than me.
No that's why I said he was similar to RVB. Not super athletic but can be a really good run stopper.
They aren't recruiting him as a WDE so i'm not that worried about his explosiveness. Would be nice to have though.
If certain things happen this weekend, then Michigan may pick up more than just Conley this weekend.
He is telling people that they would be surprised and the player has been rumored to commit soon. Who could it be?
Gedeon...O'Daniel (maybe)....maybe an under the radar guy that we haven't really talked about too much but has an offer. My guess is Gedeon
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
He ace williamsing? Or is it based on an interview or something
