rundown of Michigan's riser
Linked here, has Edwards at 4, Jackson at 16, Shazor at 32, and Baas at 38.
Also, the Dumbest Junior Award goes to Domonique Morris of Vandy, ranked #234. Nugent clocks in at #45, a solid second rounder, if you're interested.
There's a three page thread about Michigan QBs on the PSU scout.com site. No, I don't know why. There's one guy claiming that he's cut up a ton of tape for SD-based quarterbacks; he says that Forcier is obviously better than Gutz or Richard. Take that with a grain of salt, methinks.
Also, MarshCreek does his usual Michigan bashing, and quotes an Ohio newspaper article concerning the recruitment of Ohio Jr. QB Mike Hartline wherein Hartline says that Loeffler told him Gutz may not return from a shoulder injury and Richard may transfer. Sounds like "maybe" means "these things could happen but they're unlikely". Not like Hartline really has to be concerned with Gutz anyway, since he'll be a fifth-year senior when Hartline is a true freshman. FYI, I wouldn't get your hopes up on Hartline. His brother just signed a LOI with OSU on Wednesday. We'll probably end up looking elsewhere for our QB.
Says this USCHO post, citing USHR.com, which, if you don't know, covers amateur hockey all across the country and is generally extremely accurate. Think rivals.com for college hockey. tbarr confirms on The Wolverine.
What exact class Swystun is in depends on Phil Kessel. If Kessel becomes a Real American Hero, Swystun will be an '06 recruit. If Kessel decides he likes -40 degree weather, horrible football, and/or cheese, Swystun will be an '05 recruit.
Rivals has a junior All-American team up that includes a number of guys Michigan will be recruiting: OH RB Chris Wells, MI LB Brandon Graham, PA S Myron Rolle and KY DE Micah Johnson, plus more we haven't heard about probably.
One kid on the list, PA DB John Maddux, attends Slocum's school so he probably has heard quite a bit about UM already.
Apparently State all gots the flu. That can't hurt, but given the way things have been going lately about six Wolverines will come down with it.
