fair point that
Nothing good comes from tweeting at recruits. If you have something to say, please refrain from doing so. You would think this is obvious, but some people still don't understand this.
Just spoke with Damien Harris' coach, he had a message he was adamant that I tweet to Michigan fans.— Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH) January 21, 2014
"People need to back off of [Damien]. People are attacking him and the fans better ease up or they're going to push him away from Michigan."— Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH) January 21, 2014
Harris' coach said the only impact a fan can have on a prospect's recruitment is a negative one. Apparently Michigan fans have been nasty.— Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH) January 21, 2014
Nice write up on Michael Schofield at Mlive.com. He is practicing at Guard to show his versatility. It sounds like he is impressing people during practice.
What an outstanding gesture of support by this young man. Who cares what Sherman said?

Coach Nussmeier is starting to make his imprint on the Michigan offer list as highly touted signal caller Jarrett Stidham confirmed with me that he was offered by the offensive coordinator this evening.
Stidham is listed as a dual-threat quarterback and has the 40 time and highlight tape to back up that claim. He has a pretty loaded offer list already so Michigan is a little late to the party but he told me that he likes Michigan with some excitment.
Stidham is very impressive on film but he's from Texas and has a lot of offers already. Nussmeier will have to work some magic here but I like the offer.

I was able to confirm with Johnny that Coach Nussmeier reached out to him tonight and offered him. Johnny doesn't have any sort of order to his group of seven offers at this point and really hasn't started looking into schools much yet. Frasier has only been playing football since his freshman year so he's pretty green when it comes to the recruiting scene and what it takes to come up with a list of favorites.
After talking with Coach Nuss and coming away with an offer Johnny said the Wolverine offer means a lot and he really likes that Michigan is going to stick to the run game. He said that he and Coach Nuss didn't talk about scheme much but he's excited to in the future.
Most people are going to wonder if this has any correlation to what Damien Harris is feeling, especially since it was Coach Nuss who visited Harris last week on one of his first gigs as the new OC at Michigan. Harris has kept relatively quiet throughout his recruitment and even more so since his visit with Coach Nuss.
I'm not sure the offer to Frasier is related but it's definitely worth noting.
