Earlier tonight, Michigan lost a commitment from three-star defensive lineman Rashad Weaver. Weaver claimed the Wolverines staff stopped reaching out to him, and that head coach Jim Harbaugh had told him that there was only a 50/50 chance he'd have a scholarship for him on National Signing Day next week. 

Shortly after the Weaver news began circulating, Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio dropped a somewhat-cryptic tweet consisting only of the phrase "The righteous shall prevail." This would appear to be a not-so-veiled reference to the Michigan situation, and Dantonio quickly deleted the tweet. 

But, Twitter being Twitter, you know someone got a screen shot of it before it disappeared.

To add to the intrigue, Michigan State recruiting coordinator Curtis Blackwell tweeted the exact same thing.

Seems pretty clear what the intent was here. There is never a dull moment in college football recruiting, that's for sure.
