Most people think he is a lock for Michigan. He's being recruited there by our old OL coach Greg Frey.  >:(

Hopefully, Holtz will pull off another miracle and keep another top prospec HOME.

Some excerpts:

What stood out about the trips you made? Any wow moments as you traveled to college campuses?

I went to USF and I had a wow moment seeing how they're starting to put new stuff in and building new facilities. When I went to Michigan, it was a wow moment going into the city there (Ann Arbor) and it felt like a big-time city, but it was kind of small and quaint. It felt like it was perfect enough to have fun but it wasn't big enough that everyone knew your business.

The word is you really like Michigan.

They're one of my top four but I haven't made my final decision on them yet. Right now, until about two weeks from now, it's going to be an open game, an open game for anyone.

You've made it pretty clear that this is the stretch run for you. Think the next couple of weeks will be crazy?

I think there will be a last-minute rush. I'm already getting e-mails from USF two, three times a day. I get mail from Michigan all the time. Texas Tech sends me stuff. Missouri does, too.

UF has Lakeland on lock. Winning the Big East will make it easier to open those pipelines a little wider for USF. Winning consistently will cure all.

I thought there was a limit on how many times you could contact a kid? 3x a day may get excessive

The race for him is now even. Maybe all those USF e-mails are working.  ;)

Posada to Decide Soon

“I plan on making my decision soon and by either Aug. 10 or 11, I’ll be ready to announce where I’m committing,†Tony Posada said. “Right now all four (Texas Tech, Missouri, Michigan and South Florida) are right there with each other and I don’t have a favorite. I’m not sure where I’m going to commit yet – it’s going to be a last second thing and I’m just going to go with my gut...â€

So what's the likelihood of him picking us on Wednesday?

well, at least I won't waste the day wondering.  :P

So basically, if it's a plant kid, we're below them  ;)

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.
