this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Defensive tackle is looking pretty shaky on the current depth chart after the last second changes in heart by Pearlie Graves and DeQuinta Jones. According to Scout, the only undeclared DT who has any interest in us is Mike Douglas and I'm assuming we don't have a good chance of getting him. Is there any way Rich Rod will be able to replace Graves or Jones with late additions to the class?
If Jones does not commit to Michigan, this is the ultimate case of a player stringing along a team until something better comes along. He visited Tennessee this weekend and said Tennessee is a "real factor" and that he's deciding between Tennessee, Auburn, and "probably" Michigan on Wednesday.
I'm really not that high on Jones, but if he hadn't committed earlier, then perhaps we might have had time to find a replacement. He seems like the softest of soft Michigan commits I've seen in the three or four years I've been following Michigan recruiting.
Of course, Stokes is kind of in the same boat. However, with the coaching change, he has a reason to be lukewarm on the Volunteers. Rodriguez has been recruiting Jones to Michigan the entire time; nothing has changed at Michigan in that time.
In your opinion, now that he is back in the fold, does M cool on it's recruitment of say a Bennie Logan?
This should be to surprise to anyone, but DeQuinta Jones has been moved to DT on Rivals and has been awarded a fourth star.
Now we need some DE's to committ.
Did anyone see that DeQuinta Jones got bumped up to a 4 star at some point today? Not insanely significant, but it's nice to see another 4 star on the commitment list
