Recruitaholics: The Hangover Special

This week:  Commits in Action, Prospects in Action, Visitors, and getting PSYCHed out with Sayonara Suckas

I know we are all still recovering from Saturday nights game (as am I), but I'll try to take your mind off of it for a while and into something more positive.  So I now provide you with "The Hangover Special."  Enjoy (or at least try to).

Commits in Action

QB Shane Morris was at it again last weekend traveling to Cleveland, OH to take on powerhouse St. Ignatius (2-0). Sam Webb of the Detroit Free Press talked with Morris about what he is expecting to face in Saturday's showdown:
 "I've been watching film a lot and they're good," said Morris. "They're very good. There are not a lot of things that you can find that they do wrong. They're big and they move the ball. They had 11 guys running to the ball every single play. They run a layered defense, so there are a lot of them to run to the ball wherever it is. Their DBs are really good, their D-line is outstanding, and the linebackers flow to the ball. The defense is great."
St. Ignatius is ranked #23 nationally (#1 in OH) and they wreaked havoc on Morris and his Pioneer teammates all night, just as he expected.  De La Salle fell to St. Ignatius 49-13 and with Morris completing a low percentage of his passes and throwing a couple picks.  It was just an ugly night for the Pioneers.    

Morris' summer 7on7 teammate MI WR C'sonte York took the field on Friday and check out what York was sporting under his jersey:

Maize & Blue News Matt Pargoff saw York in action for himself and I'd say C'sonte had a great game:
Can't be upset with this report, especially the punt return which went for 70 yards by the way.  Not the best talent to compete against, Chandler Park won 56-6, but seems as though York didn't stoop down to their level of talent as he was impressive all night.

Detroit Cass Tech (MI) beat Northwesterm (MI) 57-0.  MGoBlog took in the game and has some good ol' analysis for yall to gander at (sometimes the country swang just comes out) including an 88 yard KO return for a TD by DB Jourdan Lewis to open the 2nd half.  Pair that with a 28 yard punt return to end the first half.  Kid went bonkers!!   OL David Dawson is at again, captioning the picture below with "my future uofm teammates..working hard af to get them to uofm":

Pickerington Central beat Marlon Franklin 45-24 and DE Taco Charlton was key to the victory.  Charlton played on both sides of the ball at TE and DL.  Kyle Bogenschutz gave us his reaction to Taco's high motor (and even name drops a Greg Mattison):
He also witnessed Charlton hauling in a 15 yard TD pass over the middle to give his team a 24-16 lead in the 3rd quarter.  This kid is versatile and it may be the most important trait of 6'6" DE/LB that he could end up becoming once this staff gets to coaching up this kid. 

WR Jaron Dukes competed for Marlon Franklin against Charlton and I'm not sure of his final stats, but I know he had 5 catches in the first half, thanks to ESPN's Jared Shanker

FB/RB Wyatt Shallman had a rough night on the gridiron having to be carted off the field after sustaining a leg cramp.  He did return late in the game, but Whitmer pretty much had this one in the bag taking home a 19-7 victory. 

Commit OL Kyle Bosch's team picked up a victory over the weekend advancing to 2-0 on the season.  Stats are tough to come by for these big boys so no news here.

OL Patrick Kugler however, produced a rare thing for an offensive lineman these days...A highlight video!!

The quickness this kid possesses at his size (6'4" 270) is remarkable.  He seems to play bigger than his size too, just dominating the competition.  Kugler and North Allegheny HS (PA) beat Mt. Lebanon (PA) 39-14.

'14 commit LB Michael Ferns was part of a 42-14 shellacking putting his team at 2-0 early in the season. 

Prospects in Action

IL WR LaQuon Treadwell was in action taking on Marion (IL) High School.  They took home the victory improving to 2-0 on the season.  No stats found here either.

RB Derrick Green faced off against top QB and PSU commit Christain Hackenburg, but Green and Hermitage HS were to much to handle winning 38-0.  Earlier in the week, Kipp Adams of ESPN  reported that Green will announce his college choice in October:
"He's still considering Auburn, Georgia, Michigan, Ole Miss, Oregon and Tennessee. Green said he'll again cut down his list before he announces his commitment.  Auburn, Michigan and Tennessee seem to be in the best position. The prospect has said he'll take official visits to all three schools and has planned an Oct. 20 visit to Ann Arbor for the Michigan State game."
Timing is an interesting thing to take from this.  He only has one set official visit and it's to Michigan in October...Expect to see Michigan as a part of his final list.

One last thing...'14 NJ DB Jabrill Peppers announced via twitter his top 10 in order and Michigan is in pretty good standing breaking the top 3:

Peppers will be one of the top prospects in the '14 class in the end and just watch below;  Maxpreps shows you why...

Peppers also added TD runs of 40 and 50 yards.  He was later quoted on Twitter saying, "I did alright, could've done better."  I'm already excited to see what's in store for next week.

Ok I lied...but I won't let you down, how could I?  Remember in one of my posts of the past when I reported that the first offer was out for the '15 class?  His name...Damien Harris.  A RB out of KY who tore up the competition his freshman year.  First game of Soph. year:  385 yards and 5 TD's.  I'd say he is off to a magnificent start to his Sophomore season, huh?  Michigan will be in hot pursuit for the next few years (that felt weird to say).

This is getting out of control!  I can't stop!  I have two names for you all to watch: 13' WR Dionte Taylor of University HS (FL) and '14 ATH Marshon Lattimore of Glenville HS (OH).  Taylor could be a last minute option at WR and UM is very interested in Lattimore who has been getting lots of praise so far this year.  I'm done...


...after this.  I talked with 247Sports Recruiting Director J.C. Shurburtt to see who some of the 2014 visitor's were for Saturday's opening game in Dallas (I don't want to talk about it) .  5-star's(!!!)  TX S Edward Paris (UM offer) and TX DB Tony Brown, who both have offers from pretty much everywhere, were joined by 4-star's OL Demetrius Knox (UM offer), who is a future 5 star prospect, and LA DE Gerald Willis.  Impressive list here, but no surprise...that's what these games do for recruiting. 

Sayonara Suckas (PSYCH!!)

FL WR Alvin Bailey committed to Florida following his game on Saturday.  This one had so many twist and turns and it seemed as though we were on commit watch at one point with this kid.  Best of luck to him.
