I'm more skeptical of that, TBH.

I should also say, the coaches are usually uninvolved. Maybe it happens, but they know next to nothing.
Well you may be more right than wrong on that part.  I can’t honestly say I know. I do think certain coaches are on the lookout for that and work hard to steer their programs clear.  But, there are likely others who conveniently look the other way.  I just don’t think Ryan day or Dabo Swinney or Nick Saban, just to name a few are going to allow stuff like that to happen in their program when they don’t need that help. And there are other coaches like Paul Chris at Wisconsin who may not be at that level nationally but just would not allow that kind of crap anywhere near their players if they could help it

Yeah, that's a completely different scenario, don't know what that dude is talking about. Dax was a long-time Michigan commit, Bama put the pressure on him and he flipped to Bama for about a week, then he followed his heart right back to Michigan, where it always was. Not really comparable scenario.

4* ATH of California Prophet Brown commits to USC. Brown was thought to be down to Oklahoma and Michigan, only to commit to hometown team USC. Can't say I blame him with all this corona going on, probably didn't want to go all the way across the country to Michigan, and Oklahoma was recruiting him at CB, and well you'd have to be a little dumb to sign up to play defense at Oklahoma- cause they play none of that there.
OU played no defense during Mike Stoops' 2nd time around as DC.  OU had played good defense before that, and played a lot better, with Mikey's so-so recruits--last year under Alex Grinch.
We'll see if the progress continues.

Damon Payne to Bama.  Best case scenario once Dantonio couldn't even get MSU into his Top 12, even as well as MSU has done in Belleville recently

Big screw up by Harbaugh in back to back classes with in-state DTs. 

DT is the single biggest need on the roster, and the state had a DT that was a top 50 player in the nation overall in the 247Composite last class in Justin Rogers and then a 5* in this class in Damon Payne, and Harbs gets neither of them. This shit doesn’t happen in Ohio. When they have a highly rated guy at a position of dire need in-state they get that player.

Jim better land some good DTs this class and next.

I missed this, didn't realize they were in his Top 5.  I guess Tucker did some work to at least get Payne's respect, after Dantonio got MSU excluded from his earlier top 10.  I do think Tucker is quite a recruiter, but this is MSU, not Georgia, and I worry that while his personality gets him in the door, and into the top 3-5 of some really big names, he's not going to wind up landing those guys over Bama, Clemson, OSU, etc..., and have the ship already sailed on his Plan B guys.

I hate what recruiting has become.  Not that it has ever been a celebration of self-restraint.

I don’t think anybody beats Jimmy Clausen announcing his decision by rolling up in a limousine at the college football hall of fame. And that was almost 15 years ago.

Sounds like Andrel Anthony to UM.  The recruiting hole that the combination of Dantonio and COVID left us in is going to hurt for a few years.

His recruitment was weird.  He basically said he had zero interest in MSU.  Then Tucker came in, and slowly things shifted, to the point that up until yesterday, ever CB was for MSU.  Then suddenly tonight on the eve of his commitment everything flipping to UM (which is usually meaningful).

run of CRYSTAL BALLZ by some insiders over at 247Sports for state of Michigan 3* WR Andrel Anthony (6-2, 175) of East Lansing HS to Michigan. 

Kind of shocked if they turn out to be right. Seemed like he was all MSU.
