I know this may be a bit of a snowflake thread, but it really seems like Hill was trolling Saban. According to Sam Webb, he flipped BACK to Michigan two days after he flipped to Bama. The question is, why the silence? My understanding (based on rumors) is that Saban led him to believe that Harbaugh was leaving for the NFL. The Don Brown stuff happened AFTER Hill silently recommitted. If this is the case, he is now my favorite recruit in a long, long time.
Harrison is a top recruit on the 247 composite who lives just beyond the shadow of Ohio State University. He visited Michigan during their big win over Wisconsin, joining several other high school standouts. National recruiting expert Wiltfong changed his Crystal Ball from the Buckeyes to 'foggy.'
At the end of the game, as the TV cameras were following Winovich off the field, he had a few words with some recruits attending the game, just before heading up the tunnel. It got me to thinking, this is exactly the kind of environment you want to have recruits take part in. A cool, crisp Fall night, no rain, lots of electricity, a big win over a ranked opponent. There are several things I'd love to know.
Michigan offered Cleveland (OH) St. Ignatius linebacker Tommy Eichenberg yesterday. He's a 6'3", 225 lb. 2019 prospect who has been committed to Boston College since June. He's also the younger brother of Notre Dame OL Liam Eichenberg. Tommy is a 247 Composite 4-star, the #19 ILB, and #360 overall. Here's a link to his highlights (LINK).
For those who don't know, Harrison is a top 4 overall recruit on the 247 composite. Background info:
- Here's a link to the ESPN radio segment.
- It's an interview between a show called Kinner & Schlemmer and Bill Kurelic, who allegedly covers OSU recruiting for Rivals.com, ESPN, Bucknuts.com, and 247 Sports, according to his Twitter bio. I'm not sure how that's possible, but if it's on Twitter, it must be true.
