Before folks get up in arms, read the article, he has already lived in Merrillville his entire HS career, but dad was DC at Morton, with Coach Kinsey moving on to Dean at Hammond High, his dad is no longer going to be DC at Morton.

Valpo vs Merrillville just got even more interesting. Maybe we will see 2 DAC squads at LOS next fall.

I'll agree that the Vikings have the potential to make a return trip to LOS.  Merrillville may struggle early, replacing both quarterbacks; though there is plenty of play-making ability in Armani Glass and now Mr. Johnson.

Per Twitter, JoJo has committed to the Northern Illinois Huskies.  Another Pirate, Jeremiah Howard signed with them last fall.

No wonder Fickell wanted no part of the MSU gig...

I think he could recruit well to MSU, even with the majority of his ties to Ohio high schools. But I also didn't think he was leaving Cincinnati because, at this point, he has the Bearcats coming off 11-2 and 11-3 seasons, respectively, and is really building momentum in recruiting. They're a perennial G5 power right now. Mel Tucker is basically starting several years behind that. It's incredible how Dantonio went from a CFP team in 2015 with five 10-win seasons in a six-year span to one over his last four with a 3-9 season and a pair of 7-6's.

 

JoJo is a heck of an athlete. It'll be interesting to see how he fares on the defensive side of the ball, especially if he's in the same room as Jon Tenuta.

Dantonio sold his soul with the Austin Robertson recruitment and then further tarnished his legacy with the recent Curtis Blackwell lawsuit where he got caught in a bed of lies.

But just like Urban, it was simply  “time to walk away...”

Funny how the time came three weeks after a $4.3 million contractual bonus and within 24 hours of signing day.
