a 3 star WR at Michigan???
I think it’s just a big deal for the reason the kid is from East Lansing and the insiders all said Michigan had like no shot and he was going to MSU and then like out of the blue it flipped and sounds like he’s all Michigan. 17 year olds be crazy.

Like I said in my post.  He had basically ruled out MSU until Dantonio left.  Although the thought was he was headed out of state, not to UM.  Then the momentum flipped to MSU in the past couple months, but sounds like his best friend/AAU teammate, Kobe Bufkin, picking UM a couple weeks ago flipped his mind again.

Granted I don't really blame him, I wouldn't want to go to college in my hometown either.  I specifically chose not to.

Calling my shot now, Mel Tucker is the juwan Howard of college football. He's got a solid enough personality to get a ton of five-star recruits to put MSU in their top five. But in the end, he's not going to land any of them, and we're going to miss out on all of the three-star guys we should get

I respect the dig on Michigan in critiquing your program

5* DT Damon Payne’s dad talking about how Michigan stopped recruiting him. Makes Harbaugh look really bad.

The WR coach under our previous coach was like this...   it was exciting to see them in the mix on the top talent, but when they all signed at other places, his plan B guys were gone.   Riley had a pro style offense and little talent at WR.  

There is a balance between reaching and settling too early.   It's always easier to judge in hindsight, but if you are not at the top right now, you have to find that balance.

True. But he looks especially bad in this case. A 5*, #1 DT in the nation and top 15 player overall (according to the 247Composite) is in your backyard and you just stop recruiting because of a beef with his HS head coach? There isn't a bigger position of need on this entire roster than DT. And the #1 HS DT recruit in the entire nation is in your backyard and his father is a diehard Michigan fan and wanted him to go to Michigan- and you just top recruiting him? Makes no sense.

He wasn't.  His dad said the coaches never discouraged anything.  He said he remains a Michigan fan, and will still be wearing maize and blue every Saturday this fall.  It's really, really, curious.

I seems to me that Coach Harbaugh has had other curious examples of pulling offers or just stop recruiting players in the past

I know it's not always best for the recruit or his family to have those reasons shared to the public, but I think a bit more communication might help.

Harbaugh just being Harbaugh. I think he's not going to recruit Belleville anymore. That's what Sam Webb kind of intimated. Harbaugh is a weirdo and I'm sick of his ass. Can't beat Ohio State, can't lockdown his own state.
