The kid is the football version of Antonio Smith. If we land him, we will land more to go with him, and a National Championship caliber team will come out of it.
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
I read this thread and said to myself "im gonna bump the this place is a cesspool thread today"
Next time I hear about Dantonio & Saban being friends,,,,I'll just have a good laugh.
I know he talked to Dantonio. I'm referencing a rumor from Michigan fans that Dantonio was "upset" that Harris didn't call him first. Sometimes I think people just tell Michigan fans things so they can bash Dantonio.
All throughout his commitment he's been saying that he was getting crazy mail. Apparently he likes Urban Meyer. I wouldn't be worried about Michigan in this recruitment, but OSU or Alabama definitely.
Yes they are.
The sad thing is they don't even have to pay players money to get anybody they want.
"With their 20th First Round pick in the 2014 NCAA Draft, the Alabama Crimson Tide select Drake Harris -- WR -- Grand Rapids, Michigan."
Mel Kiper Jr. aka TanFan - "How many stars? 5? Good get. MSU stuck in the cellar with 2 stars."
You are right about this. You get half your team drafted in the first two rounds you don;t need to pay them.
He gone as in... Alabama has been talking to him for months now and he hasn't budged at all?
Stay on target.....stay on target......
Honest question here, what ever happened to Dantonio's no tollerance policy on verballed commits taking visits to other schools? I thought for sure he pulled offers of kids who did that. Am I remembering wrong or is there some other reason this kid still has an offer?
If Harris is drawn away from State by Alabama, or another really big power somewhere outside the region it will hurt a lot less than if he were to spurn us for OSU or another regional power. I think it would have to be really damaging if he were to leave State for Scum, sending a big message to future recruits.
That used to be the rule, to a certain degree. But he allowed Pittman to take the OSU visit (we all know how that ended). It would appear that this rule isn't strictly enforced, particularly with high profile kids.
You can't have that policy with Top 100 recruits.
This seems like an outlandish statement, considering how many more starters there are in football than basketball and how team-dependent football is, and also considering how individualized recruiting is these days. It seems like a stretch to think that even a quarterback, which has the closest relationship to a wide receiver, would ever base his commitment on a single WR recruit.
That or I'm being seriously 10%ed here.
If you are 4 star or above, you are allowed to look around as long as you check in with the staff first.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
The SEC is definitely our big opponent here, not OSU. If we lose him, it'll be to warm weather and hot slootz.

which rating service does the coaching staff use to make that determination? What about when the kids get re-ranked? Is the rule retroactive?
Call me crazy, but I still think there is a very legit shot we land Drake for a variety of reasons.
On a side note, if the national title game was held today, who would you root for? Didn't know if this situation would change people's minds.
We were a shit-ton of dropped passes away from being in the Big Ten championship game. We have players coming up to solve some of those problems. We also have QBs coming in that are going so solve problems. We seem to have the defense sorted out.
It will be a year before the kid sniffs campus. There are some outstanding recruits that are looking at us.
Bottom line is that with the new BCS 4team playoff, you have to win the Big Ten, and you are in contention for the Nat Championship. We are not a ton of players away from another Big Ten Championship.
Landing this kid over the Bama and O$U offers sets a tone for other recruits. It sends a message, and other top recruits will follow.
I'd still be rooting for the asteroid to hit. No change on my end.
He's going to get a Notre Dame offer too.
Drake, please don't read tRCMB. The people here act crazy on purpose, and the hijinks are easily lost in translation. We wan't you in G&W.
