    Not really. Some guys just don't like to do media.

    Re: 2019 Dax Hill signs with Michigan

    There are two prevailing theories up here - one is that his parents pressured him to switch back to UM, and the other is that Harbaugh promised him that he was staying at UM. The second has several variations, but the fact is that Hill and his family have said nothing, so we just don't know.

    We know that he flipped to Alabama, but he never said why. We know that he flipped back to UM, but he has not said why.

    Oh yeah, and the folks at Okie State are still salty about not landing such a great talent in their back yard.

    Hill's Dad has some weird quotes though...He keeps referring the the Michigan network and how that will help his son after school. Dax even said something to the effect of, If I need anything after school's over I can just hit up a UM alum? ( NOT a direct quote, but very similar.) It was just odd...

    his parents pressured him to switch back to UM, and the other is that Harbaugh promised him that he was staying at UM these are one in the same as to what happened.

    That just sounds like a general Michigan recruiting pitch (like, the school, not specifically the football program). They have a really high (probably inflated) view of the power and influence of their alumni network (which to be fair, is pretty massive and well-represented in major urban employment centers). Sounds like they did a good job selling that to Dax and his family.

    I know having Michigan on your resume represents panache to some . . . but I would think in Tulsa, midwest/southern schools would carry more weight. In fact, he should have signed with Vanderbilt or Stanford if that was such a concern.

    Realistically, it is not the name on the degree that matters as much as the network. UM's network is better than Ohio State's - it is a legitimate force. Whether that extends into the Midwest, I have no idea.

    meh...do we really think that is what is driving his thought process. All he (and every other 5 star) is concerned about is the NFL.

    That's what makes this so bizzare when you consider what CNS does with 5 stars.

    Dax's dad was quoted as saying it came down to Dax wanting to be closer to home and T-town is about 250 miles closer to Tulsa. Not sure of the context of the quote and it may have been a snarky response to the reporter based on Dax's reason.

    ... methinks the bold part of your post is a gross generalization, ... and a false one at that.

    The NFL might not be *all* those player care about, but it's one of the main issues. If a guy has worked his butt off enough and is talented enough to be a 5*, he's looking to go to the NFL.

    ... you are absolutely correct.

    The smart ones, however, are already trying to anticipate what "life after the league" looks like.

    Maybe he doesn't like to wear rings.
