Like many who think its unlikely that a Cali player will come to Michigan, I think its unlikely Peppers goes to Stanford. This is based on one main circumstance, that he has never visited Stanford yet. So he says they are #1, but there are so many unknown variables with that #1 ranking for him, that I cant take it seriously right now. You have the distance, the campus, students, facilities etc all need to meet or exceed his expectations for them to remain #1, and thats a high bar to reach for a place he really knows nothing about. What about game day atmosphere? If he visits for a game at "the Farm" then visits UTL 2, there is no comparison.

Blanding is making his decision today.
Yeah but kids that want to go there want to for a reason. And its california.....totally different from everywhere else, whjch may be exactly what he wants
I agree we should continue to pursue him. I just don't think we should get our hopes up. He hasn't visited UM yet either (AFAIK). And even if Stanford doesn't live up to his expectations, that still leaves Bama (3 recent NCs), LSU (see his recent tweet), OSU (he supposedly has them listed at #2 behind Stanford), ND (former HS teammate on the team) and who knows who else. Peppers is going to be one of the toughest pulls for us in this class. JMO.

I know he's going to VA, but it'd be funny to hear him say Michigan purely to see Ohio State fans lose their minds. He was a lock about two weeks ago.
The thing about Blanding is you never know what might happen if UVA has another very disappointing season. They went 4-8 and came in last in their division last year. Another season like that and Mike London probably will find himself on the hot seat (he's only had one winning season in his first three at UVA). I don't know enough about the Blanding situation, but if Mike London gets fired at the end of this season or it looks like he might not make it past 2014, Blanding might decide to reopen things late in the process.
agree. I still think we have a shot with Peppers. Hand is more than a shot. I believe it will come down to us or VT.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
With our schedule being so lite, we have a shot at an NC appearance this year now that Lewan has come back. We have 3 of the best players in the big ten at their respective positions on offense in Lewan, Gallon, and Gardner and a defense that finished in the top 15 in the country that doesn't lose many people.
Pretty much this. As long as London is at UVA, they'll get whatever Bayside kids they want. If he gets fired, it's all up in the air.
Not that anyone cares, but I think Cornwell is going to the MSU game
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
The basketball game? That could be awkward.
I think you might be overvaluing Gardner and Gallon. You try explaining to another b1g team that they are the best and you will likely get laughed at. They havent proven anything at this point.
Why? Wonder what he is thinking about ..... hmmm ....

Blanding to UVA. LOL at Bucknuts who thought he'd commit without ever visiting.
Meyer was out of town and could not take the phone call - else he would have committed to them.
I don't know.. I would love if we took 2, and somehow convinced both kids to come, but that has about 0.00001% chance of happening.
They aren't necessarily the brightest bunch.
Gardner should easily be one of the best qbs in the big ten based on compeition. I believe Gallon was 4th in the big ten in receiving yards last year. We also don't need the best players to go to the NC game this year. Our schedule is weak and all of the biggest games are at home where Hoke hasn't lost.

You mean the bball game this Sunday? Is he coming up as an unofficial visitor?
The ONLY reason I can think of that our coaches would want Cornwell to come up for a visit is if they have an inkling that Devin will NOT be granted his redshirt, thus creating an opening for us to take another QB in this class.
Yes, Gardner should be one of the best QBs in the big 10 next year. I don't think you are overvaluing him. Jared Abbrederis Wisconsin and Allen Robinson from Penn State are both better WRs then Gallon is right now. However after those two, I could definitely see Gallon being in the conversation for one of the top WRs in the Big 10 next year. Burbridge from MSU will probably emerge this year, and then who else? So yes Gallon definitely has a chance to be up there.
So you're telling me theirs a chance?!
Clearly the only reason Blanding's not going to Ohio is he just isn't good enough to play for the Buckeyes... as are all the potential recruits they lose.
Agree. Even if we did end up taking another QB, I don't see us being able to sell Cornwell or O'Connor on the idea. It would probably have to be Travis Smith or Tyler Wiegers, which I would be absolutely fine with.
Cornwell is not visiting Michigan for the MSU game; not sure where that one started.
