to play football, not to play trumpet
Strobel came in as a highly recruited (top 200ish) type DE out of OH with great size at the HS level, but unfortunately it never really worked out here. Looks like he got his degree and is off to the Ohio Bobcats for his 5th year where he can play immediately. Interesting timing as we did not see a departure announcement from Michigan so who knows how long this has been in the works. Best of luck.

PRATTVILLE – Dytarious Johnson says Michigan is sticking with him.
The three-star linebacker was unable to sign with the Wolverines today on National Signing Day due to what he described as a transcript problem, but said Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is still offering him a scholarship despite talk of there may not be room for him in the 2016 class.
“I wasn’t worried about it,” said the 6-foot, 215-pound Johnson said. “He and I kept in contact a lot. He told me he was going to hang on with me. So I tried my best to get where I need to be.”
Prattville High coach Chad Anderson said school plans to have a second ceremony for Johnson and other players in the near future.
“The coaches from (Michigan) have been really good with us,” Anderson said about the transcript situation. “Their academic compliance has been good with us. Just trying to get it all sorted out so he’ll be taken care of. If he choose to, you’ll see him in Michigan uniform for sure.”
It's a premium article from Sam Webb, but let's just say Greg Harden played a huge part in Gary deciding to stick with Michigan. Harbaugh and Partridge deserve the praise, but Harden has been someone that we forget about even though he does an amazing job with the student athletes.
For those who don't know about Harden, watch this:
It looks like FSU added 5 Rivals 4-star kids today, launching them to the top of the Rivals rankings. Bama wasn't far behind, bringing in 2 4-stars and 2 5-stars. They currently sit at #2.
But they didn't get the biggest fish in the pond! Go Blue!
