Don't know who the neg-bomber is (we can't see who upvotes/downvotes), so I upvoted all your posts.
Is it ok to ask what's going on with FHH's academics? First Burbridge and now Collins? I don't live in MI, but I thought FHH was a pretty decent school?
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Academics, from what we've heard. He transferred, but I think there were issues aside from getting credits to transfer.
FPS is pretty good, but most of the athletes at Harrison dont care to keep up with grades. The better schools usually means more work if you arent paying attention in class. There was also rumors going on a couple years ago that Harrison's coach would pull kids from Detroit into Harrison.
Harrison is the worst academic wise of the 3 FPS high schools (Not counting farmington central, the alternative learning high school)

Yep spot on.. I went to North
FWIW, I heard our coaches are much higher on DCD QB Wiegers and I think they are looking at another MI QB more closely than Stewart. I think the kid maybe very overrated or there are some other issues going on.
I forget, are you a UM or MSU guy? (not a flame, the non-obvious handles confuse me from time to time ).
Personally, I'm gonna start down voting whenever anyone complains about down voting.
I just down voted you... what do you have to say about that?
Upvote for you, bro!
I just up voted you all for the entertainment value!
After two years I still fail to see the point of the entire upvote, downvote thing in the first place.
I was just reviewing the Drake Harris Football Profile on 247 and it has Tom Izzo listed as the recruiter. I thought this was totally awesome. I busted a gut that this is just how awesome Izzo is.
How many other football recruits have ever committed based on their conversations with the basketball coach?
Looking forward to 247 updating their ratings on Drake. We are listed as the number 9 or 10 class nationally in the 2014 cycle(Meaningless right now) and Harris will likely be a solid 5 star, and I believe Bullough will receive a bump in his ratings from the other services.
Harris will probably go up to a 96-97 or so, with a shot at a 5-star rating; he's going to push McDowell for "#1 player in the State" honors.
Dion Drake won't probably change too much.
Bullough will probably be an 87 3-star on 247. He's a 3-star on Scout (though he is a "Scout 300" member). Riley was also an 87 3-star.
Wasn't Max a 4 star?
Nice write 2014 write up on tBB, unfortunately not a lot of love for the Green and White. Harris looked to be the only one we have a shot at of the big names and Drake was listed in the honorable mentions along with Brian Allen. Didn't see much else we have a legit shot at, anyone know the latest on Jeff Jones the top100 Minn. running back?
Iowa leads currently, I won't say much more because it might be VIP (just this much might be)
Yea, but he was also much bigger in HS and a MIKE recruit (the recruiting sites love them some measurables). Riley got hurt during his SR year as was around 6'2 210. He came in at around 225 and pretty ripped; he'll play at around 230ish.
Byron's only 6'1 205 or so.
Anyways, Max was a consensus 4-star.
I think it's common knowledge that Iowa leads; if you want to share VIP info, all I ask is that you PM it the other party.
Interesting, the article states Iowa leads but I was a bit surprised by that. They are going to have a hard time pulling top kids with how easy it is for other B1G schools to negatively recruit them.
Given AIRBHG, I'm surprised ANY RB has Iowa in the lead for their services. I swear they must have their RBs work out on an old Native American burial ground or something . . .
