to play football, not to play trumpet
Steve Kornacki writes a fluff piece on Jake and his role this year. Obviously is pretty high on him.
More Manny fluff. Lots of direct quotes from Manny. He says all the right things.
I didn't find it linked here, so here goes:
I stumbled upon this article on Cleveland.com Re. Jake's Michigan commitment.
The article gives some stats from this past season and lists some of his offers, all MAC schools.
The offer list is a little lacking but I still think this kid has a shot at being a productive B11 player, especially considering our current LB situation.
I think his videos show solid pursuit and tackling fundamentals, something thats been lacking the last couple of years imho.
I talked to a couple kids after the Gridiron Kings 7 on 7 tourney. Here's what was said.
- LaTwan Anderson is going to go home, and try to set up a date to visit Michigan soon. It seems like the Michigan kids there were talking to him quite a bit. He was also defensive MVP.
- Cullen Christian told a couple kids he is going to make his decision in the beginning of the season. All he was talking about was Michigan.
- Austin White, Ricardo Miller, and Devin Gardner have all formed a really good friendship. They all plan on working out together once Ricardo gets up to Michigan in a couple weeks.
- Apparently Kenny Shaw still has some interest in Michigan. I don't know how much, but IMO it's not enough.
I believe this article is what Brian would call fluff.
Still, I think it's good pub for Michigan. Funny how they don't mention Gabe Watson or Alan Branch, both teammates of Woodley and Breaston while at Michigan.
