Philosophy says: I don't believe in verbal recruits because, well, they're verbal. And because, like Urban Crier says, a verbal really only tells you who your competition is. And, like, Kevin Newsome, Jai Eugene, Roy Roundtree, bla blahh bla blahh bla blahh. But, hey, there's probably at least a 50/50 shot he stays. And for that we deserve some info:
LaLota plays both sides of the ball, but wants to play defense. He will liklely start at defensive end -- for which we have a serious need. He runs a mid 4.__ 40 yard. He's pretty big: 6'5" 260ish. There is much free already written about Mr. LaLota that you can read here, here, here and here.
Yeah. Maybe Will Campbell knew something we didn't. Or, maybe he really just wanted to think about it and will still join Michigan for a really super awesome defensive line class.
