Came across this picture today and wondered if anyone saw it.


WebbJabril Peppers (UM), Tim Cason (PU), Damon Webb (OSU)

Supposedly there were a bunch of B1G players working out today up in TSUN. Going against one another and also instructing younger high school and college players at an unknown high school. Did a little research and came across some tweets as well.

Here's a couple that made me smile.




And this one made me smile extra wide.

Jabril Peppers can't even cover our DBs


Also a little sidenote: I've been over to MGoBlog and saw some posters arguing over the height of Jabril Peppers, saying he is somewhere between 6'0 - 6'2. Seeing how I was led to believe Damon Webb is 5'11 and found out that Cason is listed at 6'2, I just don't see that as a possibility but obviously I could be wrong, Damon and Tim Cason (middle guy in the picture from Purdue) probably are both be standing on a stack of phonebooks. Jabril Peppers is actually 6'4 guys.

Obviously this isn't game situations and just a couple guys getting better, I just wanted to share this with everyone and know that it's good to see players working and striving to get better during a time where most kids their age are out having fun with their friends, relaxing, etc. It's these stories that don't make big headlines but like I said it's good to see and good for the B1G.

Damon Webb is still one of my favorite recruits from the past 3 seasons and he just keeps getting better.

He's going to a crappy football team. I'd be angry too.

You know, the funny thing is, Damon Webb was actually measured at 5'10 at one of the combines or bowl games or something.

By the looks of their hand gestures they all understand the B1G pecking order.

Look at their hands in the picture above, Webb knows who's #1 and Peppers knows who's #2.

That is a grown man.  Sucks he's going up north, but he looks built to be playing from day 1

Peppers is ripped!

Wait until after a few of Hoke's Famous Barbeques. Then let's see how ripped he is.

Nice post SivaDavis!

Hopefully the B1G can hook a few more fish like these guys. I remember when Peppers first committed - every blogger from UM instantly thought they would win the NCG with one 5 star recruit. Talk about jumping the gun and making outlandish statements

He is not just an ordinary five star recruit though, he has been praised as one of if not the best DB prospect of all time coming out of HS, and arguably was the nations best HS player last year. The reason we won in 1997 was about 80% Woodson.

I will agree some UM fans are delusional about this, but there are many instances where one player has completely turned teams around in one year.

Wow. Peppers is a stud. Say what u want but he looks like a baller and I wish he wasn't going.to be a wolverine. Those of us old enough to remember Woodson shudder. But I believe dame will be every bit the player jabrill will be and he will be on a better team. Go bucks!

Edit: guessing the guy behind Cason is either a badger or a wolverine

Correct. He definitely is a great prospect.

I heard Peppers was seven foot tall and shoots fireballs from his eyes and lightening bolts from his....

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Either Damon grew or UM fans are going to be sad.

Peppers is definitely not taller than Webb. I'd say Webb looks a solid 6' standing next to that 6'2" purdue kid.

Really cool update, except for the mention of phonebooks, which clearly don't exist anymore

I'm assuming this is in jest, but you didn't use the sarcasm font.  Just an FYI, I got a Columbus Yellow Pages delivered on my front porch just last week.  Not that I'm going to be using it for anything other than ballast on my bookshelf....

So I lived in North Jersey the past several months and was pretty close to Paramus (Where Peppers is from).

One time I saw him at the gym I used to go to and he was absolutely ripped out of his mind. That being said, I'm about 6'1. Dude was shorter than me by   AT LEAST two inches and that's not exaggeration. Nonetheless, I think he is going to be a player for Michigan based on what I heard from everyone in Bergen County.

On a side note, I never got to meet up with Ramzy for a situational while I resided in NJ so I'm pretty disappointed in myself.

Does Peppers even lift?

Okay. Just curious.

Shame Webb and Peppers would have been a great CB duo.  I hate admitting it but Peppers is going to be a good one.

It's ok he actually might turn into a real nice player/stud which wouldn't be all that bad b/c it makes the conference that much stronger. A man on an island will need help and we have the players and staff to take full advantage of the weaknesses they have.

There's a chance Peppers looks like that naturally; just a case of good DNA. I've seen it before with a guy in my unit. He never hit the gym and was just built and ridiculously strong naturally.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!
