With the recent commitment of Stephen Hopkins to fill one of our “big-back” roles, I pose a few questions. If you were RR…
How many more backs do you take for the 2010 class with Minor, Grady, and Brown all graduating this year?
Of these back how many fill “big-backs” roles i.e. Minor vs. speed back roles i.e. Brown.
Also quite a bit has been discussed in regards to M. Lattimore, A. White, B. Clay, M. Brown, and C. Lamb as of late… so who do you have the best shot(s) @ landing currently and why? I do understand that some consider Tony Drake a running back, but this thread is based on the assumption that he will fill a more specialized role.
Last but not least do you offer Nick Hill and if so when?
In reference to the recent freep.com article by Josh Helmholdt http://www.freep.com/article/20090401/SPORTS06/90401005/1054/SPORTS06/Sa...
I pose (2) questions. How likely will it be that both Robinson and Anderson sign with UM being that their (2) of the top (10) safety prospects in the 2010 class; despite both knowing the depth and opportunity at the position? Also if you had your choice of only (1); who would it be?
My two cents would be to gain the pledge of Robinson over Anderson, but hopefully we can sign both. Granted my numbers are based purely on those reported by the major recruiting services, but I was somewhat surprised to see Robinson ranked lower by Rivals than Anderson, especially in comparing their offer sheets. Please don't berate me on the unimportance of rankings as the senior campaigns and camps will have people moving up and down the board continually as I already know and agree. All in all I'd prefer to have Robinson's stature over Anderson's and despite Robinson being reportedly slower I still feel his game will lean more towards lowering the boom on those who reach his level in the defense, and battling against taller receivers in helping out J.T. and Boubacar in the future.
Rivals' Michigan affiliate is not reporting that Gardner has committed. In fact they're saying his announcement date has been moved back. WTF is going on? Can anyone elaborate?
First I read it was Helmoldt in today's Free Press:
Is this accurate?
Looks like U-M is in good shape with 2010 DE Derrick Bryant:
I have a healthy dose of skepticism for all potential commitments, particularly out of state. At the very least, Tall seems to be doing a good job in Ohio.
This is my first post in here. I have enjoyed reading for a while.
I'm wondering what you all think of 2010 dual-threat QB Robert Bolden out of St. Mary's in Orchard Lake. Everyone talks about Devin Gardner, but Rivals seems pretty high on this guy.
Also, any recent news on Marvin Robinson?
