Confirmed that Lawrence Marshall has committed to #Michigan
Yes, same Marshall that visited MSU like 8 times in the past 3 months

This is tiring.
8 times in the last 3 months.
Oh no. I'm happy I don't know who this is.
LOL. Blows obviously, but seemed he was visiting just to meet with some girl. Don't know how much he was ever into our football program.
He skipped their spring game to visit us and then came and visited our spring game....then the all mighty crystal ballers predicted us to be the pick for him.....I believe 6 crystal ballers picked MSU......this is getting old
To die in ann arbor is redundant
Perhaps dantonio needs to stop being such a white knight when recruiting these kids and put the pressure on for once.
He only comes here to bang our girls...he goes there to play football
It came straight from his mouth that he wasnt.
This has been going on for 20 years and likely longer.
He was here visiting his slam piece. He used the football team as his excuse for his parents.
Seems like old times.
Glad you could stop by, cock sucker
Biggest fail yet by the staff. These guys couldn't close a fucking screen door.
Recruiting is really starting to piss me off. Not because I think we recruit poorly--I trust Coach D completely--but because we seem to miss out on our top targets by recruiting them above board. We show a family atmosphere, give them a realistic expectation of opportunity, and ask them to take their time in the decision making process. Then schools (not just UM) that negative recruit competing programs, that firesale scholarship offers (Commit now or it's off the table), and some programs that may be operating with "extra incentive" swoop in and woo the guys that would most likely be Spartans if the playing field was even and everybody operated with a modicum of respect and dignity. It's very frustrating.
This is a Pallas’s cat. Their round pupils give them an odd human quality. They disturb me...deeply.
Pretty much....we have a great class going but with a decommit and unable to close on marshall and both of those recruits going to scum they are now cleaning house early on again......yeah yeah stars dont matter but we have lost 2 top notch recruits where one was committed to us and another was ignoring scum to visit us.....that blows
Bullshit- this MSU plays by a higher standard than everyone else is false.
Didn't he originally verbal to O$U a few months ago?
A man's gotta eat!
Unreal, let's just face it, our staff cannot recruit against Michigan or OSU.
And for those of you saying he was just up here to meet a girl, he put that rumor to rest a while ago. 8 visits and no commitment, he goes to Michigan one day and he commits. We're not doing it right.
This.. something needs to change
Letting kids take their time has been fucking is for the last three cycles. The staff needs to enroll in a fucking sales and marketing class at the MSU college of business. The kid was begging to commit by visiting 8 times. He hasn't mentioned them in months and commits two hors after hitting campus? Give me a fucking break.

We need closers...Alec Baldwin
Always the bridesmaid...........................
Michigan has a lot more to sell than us. Pretty simple. I'm actually glad we haven't started getting shady to compete with bigger programs. Just take whoever is willing to come here and hope for the best.
We need a fucking closer on the staff.
MD's whole "take your time" approach is backfiring big time. This kid was a fucking LOCK to MSU, and he's gone...
