    Brundidge, Burke, his parents, and the practice facility. That’s a lot of things pulling Pointer to Ann Arbor, but will the lure of New York City overpower all of that?

  • Sounds like WVA is a bigger threat than St. John’s, AG2.

    Michigan is in a strong position with Dom Pointer. The only thing left for Pointer is to make a decision but if he were to decide, he’d pick Michigan.

    Dylan, you may want to change that to the night of August 30th, which I think it was?

    Someone speculated that there is a link between Izzo continuing recruiting Gary Harris and the sexual assault by two MSU players.

    According to this thread posted on Aug 13, Izzo was reported to continue recruiting Gary Harris before the alleged sexual assault, which happened on Aug 29 to 30th. So there is no link between Harris recruiting and sexual assault.

    I don’t want to sound rude, but I can’t for the life of me figure out why anyone would want to go to West Virginia. Maybe if you really really like Bob Huggins, but even then, I can’t imagine what would make West Virginia a desirable destination. A few of my friends applied to become lawyers for the federal government and the possibility that they might be assigned to an office in West Virginia literally kept them awake at night. When they were finally given an assignment in Philadelphia they almost broke into tears they were so happy!

    1) Huggy is very “likable” by players (you could speculate whether any of that has to do with shady recruiting practices)
    2) They went to the Final Four last season

    That’s about it.

    I hate it when people post garbage like “The only thing left for Pointer is to make a decision but if he were to decide, he’d pick Michigan.” Give me break. You don’t know. Don’t sit here and try to act like you know what you’re talking about.

  • I have now idea what university Mr. Pointer is going to choose, but I sure hope it’s Michigan. He would be a great addition.

    I actually admire West Virginians for breaking up with the confederate Virginia to stay in the Union, of course this was almost 150 years ago.

    I do have it on a good source that Pointer has Michigan as his leader. It’s the same person who told me that Costello and Valentine were basically MSU lock once they get an offer from MSU. Simply put, it’s Michigan to lose with Pointer.
