Some main points from it:

- didn't make it to OSU b/c of "transportation issues" Will NOT be rescheduling, he's done with visits

- really enjoyed his time at Illinois, esp. the social scene on Fri/Sat

- needs time to thinks things through and will be announcing 12/20 at his high school

- his buddy Josh Brent will be announcing at the same time

He did not seem as enthused as his ND visit, and he also seemed to just confirm what he already knew about Illinois. It also sounds like he didn't mind not going to OSU, as if it never had any bearing on his choice, and he went down to Illinois with some friends cause it was close and they could drive it.

 

IMO, the worry here is that Brent is chosing between OSU and Illinois, so one worrys that they announce together. Why would they announce for different schools at the same PC, unless Wilson doesn't want to let Zooker down to bad, seeing as Zook thought he had him wrapped up, which I could see happening.

 

Anyone know where Brent is gonna go?

Does anyone else get the feeling that we are teetering on the edge of either having a very good class or having the best ND class ever. There are so many guys that have us in their top 2. If they start falling for ND one after the other...WOW!!! If they start going the other way it will be a very good class that is known as the class that almost was. The kind of class that we sit around saying, "Man if we only could have..."! Just look at what hangs in the balance...(Tez, Hughes, Martin, Griffin, Edwards, Williams, Blackwell, Peters, Donald, Smith, Benn ) That list is frickin scary!!! Keep your fingers crossed gang...this could get very interesting.

It does sound a lot like Martez is going to Illinoios. If his "buddy" Josh Brent is a lock for Illinois, Josh is announcing the same day and at same school as Martez, I am starting to see the writing on the wall.

 

Although, I heard Martez had a good visit at ND, I have to believe Josh is recruiting Martez to go with him, "Martez, if we both announce together can you imagine the push it will have for Illinois recruiting? Let's go for it."

 

The sad thing is 3 top 150 players at Illinois does not make a winning season in 2007!

Last I heard Illinois pulled Brents scholarship offer and said he was not what they were looking for! Wonder what hapened?

 

Brent still has an offer.

 

Why would Brent come to Martez's school to announce unless they were both committing to the same school? That's what really discourages me.

this is what i was thinking.

if Brent is coming to announce with Tez they would likely be choosing the same school. same as when AA announced and he was going to announce with his friend but then they both wernt going to the same school anymore so they never announced together.

For anyone with an IrishIllustrated account, did MCTD10 give his opinion on Zook and Hughes?

 

Good question. I checked it out and here is basically what he had to say: Illinois is in good shape right now. But Charlie will have the last word with an in house visit, and he will be offering the better school, opportunity, exposure and coach.

 

He was just emphatic that this is not over until the home visit. I have to agree with him, although he didn't address the fact that Brent is announcing with him. Anyway, with a home visit still pending I'm still hopeful that this fight isn't over yet.

 

Let's see what a couple of Super Bowl rings will do in the Wilson living room!!!

Thanks Prez. Hopefully CW can work some magic for the in-home visit.

 

If we lose out on 'Tez, then we must land Martin.

 

Give me Donald and Blackwell on top of that and I could care less who else we get.
