Where is the "Urban Can't Close" joke?
Guess someone has to say it.....URBAN CAN'T CLOSE....
This is just crazy. It sounded like he made an impulsive decision sitting in UFM's office while on the visit and I think I read somewhere that his parents were shocked at his decision. I would not be surprised if once he got back home, he realized the gravity if his decision and him and his family decided to back out and take things a little more slowly. Either way, this is not a huge deal. I think we all liked how he played on the field, but the reality of the situation is that we are really deep on the defensive line, he plays against so-so talent in Michigan and there are a ton of big names we are in on with limited schollies. It was very exciting to see UFM taking players out of Michigan, but this isn't going to do much harm and it is better now then later.
You could see this coming! He attended the MSU/ScUM Game, then states he may go visit SCUM.
Coach Meyer has shown his Recruiting prowess, so you hate to have someone Decomit, but its very early in the process. He may wind up Committing/Decomitting/Recommitting on every visit. He probably succumbed to peer pressure of some sort.
Oh well no worries good luck to him whatever he decides. Our Class will be one of the Top Classes in the Country AGAIN when its all said and done, if he chooses not to be a part of it so be it.
As many have already stated....."on to the next"
I'm fine with it personally we have great DEs for the next three four years. He isn't the one we need. Somebody get me Malik McDowell and Drake Harris and been done with that state. But we really only need one DE this year.
Just buyer's remorse....all in-home sales contracts come with a 3 day grace period so you can change your mind w/o penalty. He probably got all excited by the prospect of being on a NC contender and then later realized.....Bosa, Lewis, Sprinkle, Spence, Pittman, Washington, Miller.
It is a lot of work just to stand on the sidelines for years and wait to have some fun.
Agree, not a problem. If Ohio talent is down as reported than sCUM and MSU in trouble because they can't survive without Ohio kids. Me thinking they will have to work doubly hard to keep their best home and applied mucho pressure on Marshall. Urb is making it very difficult on our friends up north IMO.
Long ways away from signing day. Getting and holding on to oos kid early is hard.
I'm still on an emotional high from NSD 2013 one week ago....I honestly do not care this early into the process, as I said before he still may recommit, he may not...it's not like we were blind sided or it's too late in the process...

Ha...pretty funny. I was going to post earlier today in another thread I'd be very surprised if Marshall stayed committed until signing day. I have zero problems with this given how far we are from signing day and how much talent is out there in the 2014 class. Good luck to him.

No surprise. Still would like the kid, plenty of time till signing day. And things work out for Urb. Lewis Neal & Anzalone or Mike Mitchell & Tre Johnson? Nuf said!
It's a nice position to be in where a guy decommitts, and instead of being upset, we're excited about who we could be getting instead
Yes, which is why I don't want him.
We may have lost the battle......but not the war.
It's on the brink of becoming old, but this one was still funny. :)
