Where do you think he ends up smart guy and why?
Reason- we're not Tennessee...
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
I was talking about Woulard....anyway don't act like Michigan is Michigan right now
He wanted to be the only RB in his class.. He turned down almost every school that already had a RB commit.
Hoke was hired by SDSU in Dec of 2008. Hillman committed in Jan of 2009. Nice try though.
Was it Ohio State that he visited, and then they made a statement that they decided to go a different direction? Basically said, we don't want him anymore.
Thank you for anwsering my question
Yeh that's why he has Michigan as his favorite right now.
Funny seeing these Virginians trying to come up for excuses why he didn't go to VT or Virginia. Had little to do with anything other than he didn't want to spend his time at either of your programs.
Michigan already has an elite RB in Deveon Smith, that hasn't scared off Green one bit.
very. I'm pretty sure we got the same number of visits as you did though..... That's a big 0 ginger.
Also since I've actually met the kid in real life, I can say that he loves himself too much and is already too big to maintain any speed in college. There is a reason schools are saying no thanks.
Frankly most of us VT fan could careless I personally think the kid is overrated. Believe what you want but he wanted no part of programs that had other RB's commit early in his recruitment now that some schools that he was looking at are full he is stuck(no disrespect to Michigan).
I just don't think he is that good but that is my opinion
kid was never interested in staying instate. Fine with us because the more we hear about him the less we like him. Kid is overrated and I hope he turns out well for ya but be prepared when/if he doesn't.
I like Deveon Smith much more than Green, but as our 2nd back in the class I'd be thrilled.
That being said, lots of people seem to think he is overrated, but none of the talent evaluators do. Green is a rock solid player.
Smith is good dude but VT got 3 backs in last year's class alone rated as high and higher than Smith.
I think the reason the talent evaluators love him is because he is amazing in a combine atmosphere. There is no doubt he could be a solid player just don't think he is worthy of a 5 star.
My reason for liking Smith has nothing to do with his ranking. He could be a 0 star and I would still think he is a stud.
That's all well and good, just don't make up BS excuses for why he isn't coming to VT.
Bottom line he doesn't care about schools that have other RB's because otherwise Michigan wouldn't be among his favorites.
Smith is very underrated. He will be starting over Green if Green does come To UM. Hell Green might be behind Shallman when its all said and done.
He's not coming to VT because VT was only going to take one RB. We got our guy in September, which is when VT stopped recruiting Green. I doubt would have gone to VT anyway, but the ship sailed on Green for VT. Kid has great measurables and looks the part, but watching him play in a game is very underwhelming. He has the potential to be great, but I just haven't seen it so far.
Hoke was giving Drake props in his last interview
Are you thinking of Jim Harbaugh? He coached at University of San Diego before Stanford, not San Diego State.
"Isn't it amazing what somebody will do when he can't bunt." - Vin Scully
We are more loaded at RB than a $3 baked potato at Wendys.
2012 Class - This is the top RB recruiting class in the nation
Mangus - 3 Star
Harris - 4 star
Edmunds - 4 star
Coleman - 4 star
Add in Holmes, Wright, Reid, Williams for 2014. OL we can use. RB, we pretty damn set.
This. I am very impressed with his film, moreso then Green, though wouldnt mind him too.
Whoever gets Green will get themselves a nice lead FB.
Wrong San Diego. Hoke was at San Diego State. Harbaugh was at San Diego. You can't even get the schools straight. Must be a Tennessee thing considering you hired the worse HC named Butch...
