PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Need I say more
And Alex. And rivals. And scout. And himself. A little late to the party.
Oops, didn't see it anywhere else.
How fast will take to now learn from scum fans that Levenberry didn't truly have a committable offer.
Why don't you check out the 2013 thread to see scum fan's response. We don't throw around non-committable offers. Either you have an offer or you don't.
Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!
He definitely had a committable offer from Um, and Levenberry would've been a good addition to an already solid class for them, but they already have commits from 2 LB's in Gedeon and McCray along with the LB's they signed for 2012. It was a loss for them, but its not like their defense will crumble by not landing the kid.
@PHX we're the ones that say that all that time. Michigan fans say that they had to turn them away because everyone wants to commit all the time
I heard that the reason he eliminated TOSU was because he didn't like the player dorms. I havent't been on campus in over ten years. Can somene tell me if the players still house in Lincoln and Morrill Towers?
Most of them live in the really nice apartment style dorms on 10th and Neil above marketplace. I can't imagine there are much nicer environments for athletes to live in at other schools.
I would say I am very disappointed in this, this guy seemed to be a lock a month ago. Sure it was icing on the cake in regards to Linebacker recruiting, but damn, would of been good icing. Also, I know they are shutting down LB recruiting for the class now, so I really they use this scholly and really try to go for the best player available , (Pocic)I hope we try to recruit him again.
In that case, expect things from James Ross guys. The guy is a stud, and I know Tressel and his staff offered him. They new about Linebackers quite well.
Rational- Didn't Um turn away Anzalone because they were "full" @ linebacker? Were they saving a spot for Levenberry just in case he committed?
The only person we were going to take a commitment from was Levenberry at linebacker. It is why we told O'daniel and Anzalone to not visit. I am assuming at that time they had known that Gedeon was going to commit. O'daniel would of been more of a Weakside Backer. Levenberry is your prototypical Middle Linebacker. Would of been nice to get him. So, he was going to be our third or no one else. You have to remember we took four 4 star backers last year as well.
Nonetheless, I am disappointed. Shows you no such thing as "locks" in recruiting.
It's disappointing - I'm a big fan of Levenberry's upside. I'm happy for him, though - Michigan doesn't have his major (Criminal Justice), and FSU does - he said he wants to become an FBI agent. He's got a great fit at FSU, and in the end, I wish him well. He would've been a great get, though...
Absolutely, he and his family were definitely class acts during the whole process. A few things favored FSU: The Criminal Justice Major, ( kind of lame, Michigan offers some majors that can get him into the field of work he wanted) The defensive style of FSU, he liked the idea of staying clean and being able to fly around, and I think the depth at Linebacker that we have now. ( I would like to believe a player of his caliber would not mind competition) But, I do wish him well even though he just committed to the Notre Dame of the south. Good luck EJ, hopefully we can see in a bowl game down the line.
I agree R Mfan, if he wants to be an FBI agent, a Criminal Justice major is not his best choice of a degree. They want accoutants, law degrees, and people that are fluent in foreign languages. At least that is what they were looking for a few years ago.
Curious MFAN, why "Notre Dame of the South"? Is it their helmets? They're not a national magnet like ND, nor do they have their own TV contract, nor are they a particularly prestigious academic institution. Am I being too literal and it's just fun to say?
He wants to be an FBI agent that polices the internet---goes after hackers and what not. I think the called it computer or internet forensics. Many of Michigan fans made that argument that he could have been in numerous degree programs at Michigan that could have gotten him there, but, in the end, what can you do?
Not sure if you're joking or serious, but I think he's referring to them as the ND of the south because of their past dominance, national presence, and how they are grossly overrated every year with people saying this is their year, only for them to repeatedly lose 4-5 games each time. Not to mention their stellar recruiting classes that haven't equated to much.
I just want to note that the football team at FSU in general is a great place for criminal justice majors. It'll give him a lot of first hand experience!
"RIMSHOT!" Well, played.
ND and FSU both think that they were the premiere programs of the '90s. And if you go by TV ratings, that much is probably true. But a man named Tom Osborne would beg to differ...
My best friend works in the FBI as counter terrorism.... Graduated from Columbia and speaks mandarin as his 2nd language. bucks4evr is just about spot on in what they want. Believe it or not you have to be pretty athletic as well.
mark may wins douchebag of the year... again
