Sorry if I missed it guys, the last few days have been crazy, but did Gareon Conley visit or not, havnt heard anything about it since days before the game.
It was my understanding he was supposed to be there Saturday. ESPN and rivals both still list him as a scUM commit and I would have assumed based on Hoke's policies that if he'd visited, his offer would have been pulled.
Mike Heuerman was also supposed to be there but it's my understanding he attended strictly as a fan to cheer for his brother and not as a prospect.
Yeah I havnt seen any photos or listings of him being there.

From the Michigan side...I haven't heard any confirmation either way.
Edit: from an OSU fan that I know:
Did visit, left early.
I personally have no clue what that means, just conveying what someone told me.

According to Bill Kurelic could be hearing something from Worley or Conley as far as verbal in the near future.

From ESPN's "Michigan Wolverines recruiting roundtable" (dated yesterday):
1) Michigan has the top-ranked class in the Big Ten for now. Does that last through signing day?
Tom Van Haaren: This is a tough question because they're so close right now. I think Ohio State has a little more opportunity with higher-ranked players, so I think the Buckeyes will edge out Michigan. It will be slight, though, and doesn't take away from Michigan's class. It also could depend on what happens with corner Gareon Conley (Massillon, Ohio/Washington), who just took a visit to Ohio State. If he decides to flip to the Buckeyes, that would be a big swing.
Midwest recruiting coordinator Jared Shanker joins Tom VanHaaren and Chantel Jennings to talk about some critical recruiting issues for Michigan, including whether it can hold off Ohio State atop the Big Ten recruiting rankings.
How good is this kid? Why go after him now when we didn't want him earlier in the year? Does anyone know how many guys were still after and how many spots we still have thanks.
ESPN has him ranked as the 9th best CB in the country. I think the most attractive aspect of his game is that he's like 6'2" 170, so he has great length. He has good speed (not elite speed, but good speed) and highlight tapes really show off the fact that he's a ballhawk.
The only problem is that he seems to want to play WR at the college level, which I think is part of the issue with both Michigan and OSU (we'd both probably prefer he play CB). In the highlights I've seen of him playing WR, he kind of reminds me of Michael Thomas--very good length + ball skills, but not a dynamic or elite WR.
From what I've heard OSU will likely end up taking something like 23-25 (depending on who leaves at the end of the year), we're currently at 17 commits.
Hey thanks for the info. He sounds like a good one and if were taking 23-25 guys this year were most likely going to have the number 1 class in the country.
I was just reading about Gareon on a diff site and I heard Conley visited, but left early and didn't interact much with the coaches or other recruits does anyone know if that's true?
