Arcuri, a "three-star" prospect according to Rivals.com, also had offers from Pittsburgh, Illinois and Indiana. He is ranked the No. 70 offensive tackle in the country in the 247Sports.com composite of the rankings of various services.

He replaces Gavin Cupp, who had his offer pulled Friday after reportedly attending an Ohio State recruiting event and working out for OSU coaches.

Cupp, of Leipsic, Ohio, who committed to MSU in May, confirmed to the Free Press today that MSU had rescinded the offer, saying: "I don't really have much more information on it than that, either."

Asked if this came about because he worked out for Ohio State on Friday at the Buckeye's annual "Friday Night Lights" recruiting event, Cupp said he didn't want to discuss it any further. He confirmed his recruitment is reopened. Ohio State has yet to offer the 6-foot-6, 275-pound lineman from Leipsic, Ohio.[/quote]

  • The rumor is Cupp went to FNL without telling the MSU coaches, and wanted to earn an offer from OSU and flip to them. If that's how it went down, then kudos to Dantonio for telling the kid to fuck off. Tired of recruits acting like their shit doesn't stink.
  • It's all based on caliber of kid, just like it always is in recruiting. Had this been one of their top guys, I don't think Dantonio would have reacted the way he did. If the kid is a borderline take in the first place, any mistake made will cost them a spot in the class. The more talented you are, the bigger margin of error you are afforded.

    Agree 100%.
  • There were several Sparties that went to different camps recently.  From what I read, they were all told they could go as long as they didn't participate in drills.  Cupp apparantley participated in drills.
  • How is this different from a person or coach going on an interview while having a job???
     
    I`m fine with a school protecting it's own interest, but let's not demonize these players like they aren't doing the EXACT same thing as everyone else in society. This sense of ownership that fans and schools feel they have is ridiculous.
     
    Talk about hypocritical...
  • How is this different from a person or coach going on an interview while having a job???

    It's different because the local news isn't there reporting what's going on during the interview and the making it public knowledge.

    Walk into your bosses office this afternoon and tell him you have 4 interviews set up in the next week with the 4 biggest competitors and then report back to us.

    That's not an apples to apples comparison.
     
    Coaches have public interviews every year, they are rarely demonized for it. Hell Les Miles interviewed his way into multiple raises with LSU by talking to Michigan. It's just accepted as common practice in football. Exploring options is fine for everyone but the players, how does that fly?

    Speaking football only, then yes, you are correct. However, those coaches have to get permission from their current employer to speak with other universities about open positions. Current players at the University have to go through the same process in order to transfer. We're talking about a high school kids who have no contract with anyone at this point in time so should be free to do make any decision they want but also understand there could be repercussions at the same time if they are not up front about it.

    I thought you were trying to compare college football players and coaching to the every day work world for everyone else.

    Coaches have interviews without permission all the time, it's a courtesy for a school to ask but no one thinks less of the situation or coach if no request is made.
     
    I was making a football comparison but the concept is the same in the everyday world. Not from the companies perspective but the employee. Sure the employer might be pissed you're taking interviews but no one else thinks less of a person for exploring their options.
     
    The sentiment in this thread is that players that explore their options are entitled brats. And we're talking about kids who have no relation to Michigan recruiting.
  • Players have the right to keep shopping and coaches reserve the right to yank their offer.  Pretty simple.  But if somebody commits to something (whether it's a player or coach) and then keeps shopping that wouldn't be somebody I'd deal with.  You're either in or you're out.  And I'm pretty sure Harbaugh would be demonized if he started interviewing with another school right about now.  The problem is using the word "commitment", because where recruiting is concerned nobody knows what that word means.  A coach interviewing during the off-season is one thing.  A player telling you he's coming and then a week later he decides to keep shopping takes it to another level.  But such is life in society and "amateur" athletics. 
  • There's no such thing as commitment in this world anymore, used to be, not now.
  • Kid earned his OSU offer, FWIW. 
  • so basically another commit to OSU
