Oh god, I could see this ending badly. I hope the creepy psychos whose lives were ruined by some things this high schooler said stay the fuck away from him.

Only a tool would talk to the recruits. Just show up to the game and show the recruits there that we have good fan support in East Lansing.
Threads like this are perfect material to negatively recruit against MSU.
"Son, read some of this here. This is their fanbase, and this is what they think of you."
He will be at OSU on Friday (4/12) and back in AA for the UM spring game on 4/13. Shane Morris has been all over him as well, even trying to hook up with him while in Florida over spring break. Not sure any of this means a whole heckuva lot, but he is playing this out for sure.
As much as I dislike Sugar Shane, I will say that he has been a tremendous recruiter for UM. I wish MSU had guys who worked fellow recruits as well as he does. I think it makes selling the program a lot easier. We haven't ever really had that person in football...
Possibly stupid question- but I thought actual players couldn't recruit "recruits" once they sign the LOI
No idea. Sounds like something the stupid NCAA would have a problem with.
Has Drake Harris SEEN Shane throw a football? Get real
"Tonight, we show the world what this program is made of!" -- Brian Ellerbe on Mar 4, 2000, the night of scUM's 51-point loss to MSU.
During the decommittment debacle, I made the mistake of reading DH's twitter feed. Shane was the first person to send him a tweet with something like "My man!!!" moments after Drake declared he was re-opening his recruitment.
It's clear that at each of those few recruiting visits he spent at UM this spring, the football program was in his ear the entire time to re-open his recruitment for a "bigger/better program" - whether it was Michigan, or anyone else but MSU. When Drake gave his announcement, he sounded like David Brandon's ventriloquist dummy. It's fairly pathetic, but they got what they wanted out of it in the short-term.
Will be interesting to see what happens the rest of the way.
And how do you come to this conclusion when Drake said himself that, "I just don't see MSU as the place for me, for Football.
Nothing like a little rain to keep the fans hone and scare recruits away pack the house and show these guys you aren't fair weather fans.
I don't have a twitter badge, and even though Spartan fans might think it's kind of douchy and toolish, Shane works recruits any way that he can. Someone said he won a pizza during a giveaway at Crisler (randomly I'm sure...cough cough). He split it with Drake Harris. Yeah, it's a small gesture and nobody is making a decision because of twitter badges and free pizza, but it builds some camaraderie and friendship. I think if MSU had a guy like that working our guys, we'd be pretty fortunate. I'm not talking about his actual QB abilities, which seem to be inflated.

Its funny how people on here bash the staff for "poor recruiting" then get all butt hurt when they try and be patient with an in-state top 50 kid. If MD and the staff straight up shunned the kid after he expressed he'd like to continue to visit I'd be a lot more concerned.
It would be nice if our star QB recruit could be on campus as much as Morris is at Michigan.
scUM makes sure their recruits get pizza? They've come a long way since Webber couldn't afford a slice.
On the contrary; I think internet badasses stoops21 and Jud owns Digger should show up and voice their opinions right in the faces of Dantonio and this particular recruit.
It's their golden opportunity. Let's see what happens to them.
Nut up or shut up.
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read. - Groucho Marx
Dantonio cut off a position coach at a conference and the Free Press almost had to shut down for a few days to cope with it...
Imagine if it came out that Dantonio negative recruited Michigan the way Hoke is obviously negative recruiting us?
The guy is all sold on MSU, decides he wants to look around a bit, visits Michigan and is suddenly spouting that we're not contenders and not the right fit. Gee, wonder who said that?
Yet, HOKAMANIA BLAH BLAH BLAH... nobody would ever criticize the all mighty blue for being dirty recruiters (despite, you know, just coming off probation and whatnot)
Thought Drake Harris was gonna be the star of the class getting other guys to come play with him at one point. Seemed natural if he started hitting camps, dominating as I'm sure he will, and really was as big a Spartan fan as it looked like he was at one point.
Would be pretty nice if Jamarco Jones was committing to us this weekend because DH and Brian Allen were in his ear for the last few months.

This type of stuff certainly doesn't help our cause. What a moron you are.
And I am sure UM will self report this minor NCAA violation.
Will Durkin be at the spring game? He could really help with Drake.
This butthurt by the words of a child. You need to reevaluate everything in your life, buddy. Everything.
My life is just fine. Perhaps you should reevaluate your life considering you are the one who is making a ridiculous comment that someone needs to reevaluate his own life because he has an opinion on a potential recruit.
As for Drake Harris, I still don't want him at MSU nor do I think he will end up at MSU anyways. The way he handled his decommitment speaks volumes about where his head is at and how he views MSU's football program.
The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
Sure. And then Coach D will say he can't talk about DH or it would be a NCAA violation.
