Detroit Cass Tech coach Thomas Wilcher offended by Ohio State coaching staff

The repercussions surrounding the Ohio State Buckeyes recruiting of Mike Weber are still being felt in Detroit. Many people in the Detroit area are dumbfounded at the way that Weber was treated during his recruitment. It certainly feels as if the entire process was a slight at the state of Michigan.

Many in Detroit were hurt by Weber’s decision to de-commit from the Michigan Wolverines, and then commit to their bitter rivals, the Buckeyes. While some feel that Weber might be reaping what he sowed, others feel even more offended that he is immediately disrespected by the “other side”.

One of those who feels disrespected by Urban Meyer and the Ohio State coaching staff is Weber’s high school football coach, Thomas Wilcher. Wilcher went on record to tell the Detroit News more about how he feels on the Weber situation:

“I think Urban Meyer will have to step his game up; we’re going to have to talk,” Cass Tech football coach Thomas Wilcher told Detroit Sports 105.1 on Friday. “He has come to my school and got the No. 1 athlete two years in a row (DB Damon Webb Jr.).

“You cannot come over here, come up to the north and walk out of here with your pockets full and not give us respect.

“That’s not gonna happen again, I can tell you that right now.”

Wilcher also described how he felt that Weber’s recruitment could damage the Ohio State brand.

“It’s a black eye on the university. They’re out there getting these young men under false pretenses.”

It is a developing story, and it appears that Mike Weber may be able to fight his commitment if he decides that is in his best interest. Was Urban Meyer really trying to recruit Weber? Or, was it all in effort to keep him from staying with the Michigan Wolverines? These questions, and more, must be going through Weber’s head, and many of our own.
