It sucks losing a top target to any school. Going to OSU definitely makes it worse.
Westphal, Nicholson, McDowell, Hand, Robinson
Signing day is a year away. Webb is a top 100 player, Marshall has upside, but he's not as good as Taco from this years class.
Westphal and Webb are very comparable
And we are in on a number of other guys at both CB and DE.
You should check out the scout board... you'd love it there.
I don't know what to think. We are going to get shut out of our own state this year. I am not confident about Harris, and we have already lost Webb and Marshall.
Gotta step their game up. I don't know what Coach Coombs is doing, but he's doing amazing.
You never want to lose a top player to a rival, but it happens. Michigan took Ferns from Ohio and they turned around and took two from Michigan. Just the way recruiting works.
I like Marshall, but there are plenty of others out there with similar game and potential. Look at Joe Henderson from Cleveland, OH. He has a Michigan offer and basically the same ranking as Marshall. Get him and call it even.
To put it simply, they are drinking our milkshake.
Just like he's a second stringer as well?
Nice guys can be good football players.
I'll sack tap him when I see him around. That should do the trick.
Ummm apparently you didn't watch him play this season.
No he's not. He follows recruiting rankings.
Speaking on his signing day radio show, Meyer said the Big Ten must examine its recruiting practices.
"Our whole conversation needs to be about 'How do we recruit?' " he said. "When you see 11 of the SEC teams are in the top 25, that’s something that we need to continue to work on and improve."
We examine each of the football recruiting classes in the Big Ten. Top signees include QB Christian Hackenberg (PSU), CB Cam Burrows (OSU) and QB Shane Morris (Michigan).
The bigger question is, how are they getting all of these kids to visit campus week after week? Webb, Harris, Marshall, McDowell....they all have planned out visits or have already taken them to Columbus. We haven't gotten any of these guys on campus in forever.
I'm not gonna lie, I'll be scared when Harris and McDowell get to Columbus for their visits.
I hate that he chose ohio, but I don't see him as elite. If (BIG IF I know) we get Hand & McDowell this will be completely forgotten. Even if we strike out on those 2, I think we'll get comparable talent to Marshall. The coaches need to clamp down in-state, we don't want to take these kids for granted & watch them go to rival schools.
Friendly Michigan fan here
Go away, we don't care
FYI...there is no real football talk in this post, just some failed attempt at humble bragging.
Be interesting to see how many people even remember who Marshall is when he sees the field for the first time 3 years from now.

Webb was a loss. Marshall, I'm not so sure. Both prospects can be replaced by comparable prospects.
Michigan will be fine on the DL because of the quality coaches on staff. I do think Michigan needs an elite corner in next year's class, though.
Next season on the field is going to be very important. Michigan needs to win the conference.
they got the RB from Saint Vincent to commit today as well. Looks like they are doing what we did last year (early commits, and a ton at a basketball game lol).
I hope IU continues to kick ass and win. Idk if OSU winning would help Michigan or not

He will have three defensive line coaches on him. Our coaches recruit on potential. He has all the potential in the world. There is nothing anyone can say to claim Taco will or wont be great. We all have to wait and see how he develops, but Mattison is a huge fan of Taco's game and therefore I'm excited to see how he turns out.
He did. But he eliminated you guys because he recognized how shitty Columbus was.
Pretty much the only post in this thread worth paying attention to. You people are reacting like we just lost out on Lawrence Taylor. You would think that after the past two classes our staff has signed that there would be a little more faith in what they're doing. If you're this stressed out about losing Lawrence Marshall less than a week after signing day you should probably take a break from following recruiting because you probably aren't going to make it until signing day 2014.
If only there was some way to look up and see if Ferns had an Ohio offer.....
ya he had an offer.
It's funny, when he eliminated OSU all the OSU fans were doing what we are doing now.
