Michigan recruit targets Ohio State

February 5, 2012

Ondre Pipkins (#53) anchors a strong Michigan recruiting class.

The rivalry between “the team up north” and “that school down south” takes no breaks during the off-season. Michigan’s top recruit Ondre Pipkins, who’s letter of intent is still hot of the presses, truly understands the animosity between the two schools. In a radio interview on Ann Arbor’s WTKA, the 6-foot-3, 320-pound defensive tackle spoke his piece about Ohio State and its recruits.

Pipkins matched up against Ohio State’s top offensive lineman recruit Kyle Dodson in last week’s Army All-American Bowl. “I gave a little bit to what’s his name, Dodson,” Pipkins said. “He ran away from me. That’s what they do. They run their mouth, and then when they meet up with the belly of the beast — I call myself that because I am — then they run away. When it comes to reality, they want to run away.”

Some strong words in a somewhat jovial manner continued to come out of the mouth of a player who has yet to play a down as a Wolverine but understands the bitterness between the two programs. “Who are you talking about?” he said. “Are you talking about those people down south? I don’t want to give them the time of day.” “We’re going to see them Nov. 24 at that ‘Shoe’. In the next couple years, we’ll see them at the Big House, but it’s just going to be like it was last year.”

Last season the Wolverines ended a seven-game slide against Ohio State in a 40-34 victory. There is no reason to believe when Michigan heads to Ohio State on November 24, 2012 it will be nothing less than a classic gridiron battle.
