He was a walk-on long snapper for Michigan in the 2012 class....and Dantonio called him up and offered him a scholarship so he jumped ship to East Lansing.

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

I can't blame him for wanting the free ride. His family called up the coaches and told them about the opportunity. They then asked the coaches if it was likely he would receive a scholarship at some point and they said no.

It's obvious they wanted UM, but they just couldn't pass up a free ride.

The guy that posted the following had me laughing: 
Snapper Signing Hits Double Bonus Adding a recruiting commitment from a long snapper is not typically viewed as any big deal, but how Dantonio played his hand is what makes him an effective gambler.
Consider that the Spartans latest recruit was committed to another BCS division team as a preferred walk on, and you might down grade the recruit even more. Here’s the coach D difference:
1. This recruit counts toward as a 2012 commit – not impacting the remaining scholarship numbers of the currently forming recruiting class.
2. With Dantonio’s emphasis on special teams and avoiding game-changing errors, note that this recruit has long snapper blood lines and is ranked as the 6th best long snapper in the country.
3. The team to which the recruit was previously committed before becoming a Spartan, will be on MSU’s schedule for the entire duration of the recruit’s eligibility; adding a needed specialty player to the Spartan’s roster while leaving MSU’s opponent short in that crucial position.
4. The team who lost this player to the Spartans, is not only in the Big Ten, but in MSU’s division.
5. The team now left scrambling are chUMps.
That’s how you get the most value out of a played card – like winning a poker hand with a pair of twos."
