Who knows but I felt the same way. He was talking to the Wiscy guys and didn't want to dis their program but he sounded pretty solid to MSU.
The moment is eternal
Man.. if we lose a QB commit to a coach that was at Utah fucking State last year...
Hoping this article was one of those that paints the "hometown team" in a good light and Durkin doesn't really feel like wavering on his commitment.
If MSU is who he decides to go wtih.
I'm ashamed to admit that my life was a lot less stressful before I I discovered this place and these damn VIP articles.....Fuck you too, Twitters.....UGH.
I guess the new definition of commitment is different than mine. Seems like the new meaning of commitment is you can get engaged and still pursue the next pretty face that comes along and expect your fiance to sit their patiently until you finally make up your mind at the altar.
Not partaking in this mini-meltdown, but Evan Flood is a pretty good writer.
Same here. I used to follow this crap, but way too many of the kids are quite simply full of shit. They'll say or do anything to get attention.
Don't get me started on the BS that the adults who cover this circus peddle.
Yeah exactly....nice analogy. I can't stand the way kids throw the word "commitment" around. Wake me up on recruiting day.
That's what I did about 10 years ago. Just tell me when they sign. Way too much noise and nonsense between the time they appear on the radar and the time they commit.
Would like to get 247s crystal ball update on this recent development.
I'm calling it the Taylor Swift Effect

Talked to my friend tonight who goes to school with him. She said he seems very solid on MSU, wears MSU gear to classes, and talks about his future there a lot.
I honestly wouldn't worry about Wisky... The guy bleeds green from what I can tell.
I realize it is ballsy to post shit like this, but some info is better than none IMO.

Sucks to be a MSU fan. But y'all need to chill.
I don't really follow recruiting much. Is it really that big a deal? It looks like most sites are between 3-4 stars and say he's not getting offers other than MSU and some ohio schools like Akron. Is that because MSU already has a lock on him, or because no one really think he's that good?
I mean if Terry turns out to be what we hope he does, then this guy probably realizes he won't see the field much.
Then I am sure Wisky will recruit him when that time comes. lol
5 people upvoted this?

I'm guessing Wisky fans are having a little fun.
Edit: Scratch that, looks like the Wisconsin site has about 5 people on it.

I think reading between the lines he'd like to get a Wisc offer to get a Wisc offer, but he's not taking any more visits.
Also if you've just a few recruiting quotes to fan reporters, kids almost always want to please the reporter. So that means offering up some red meat.
I'm not worried, but coaches should probably let him know they've got O'Connor and Henderson on speed dial.

I asked Dan K about it. See below:
Just read that and am very surprised. Talked to he and his Dad last night and both were very excited about his future in East Lansing. Didn't say anything about Wisconsin making a move or anything like that and Durkins was very excited to come for the spring game this weekend.
I'll get back in touch with him about that and let you know what he says.
Henderson commited to UNC last week.
That happens a lot lately.
