If you still hold a grudge against the Freep, don't click, but they have interviews with several of the incoming freshman class. Of interest, Karan Higdon sounds like he has a beast workout ethic, and Keith Washington offered to run a 40 for Harbaugh in the parking lot.

- Some, uh, massive busts but some pretty great players.
- Prescott Burgess was a beast.
- Kind of hard to believe D.Green wasn't #1 in Virginia in 2013.
- Pierre Rembert was #2 in Wisconsin in 2002. If things hold up and Bredeson follows through with his commitment and signs with Michigan in February, Michigan will grab WI's top ranked player for the first time.
This is the 6th 2018 prospect that Michigan has offered.
Allan Walters is a 6-2/203 HS sophomore out of Paramus Catholic.
Michigan is looking to build a pipeline there and it would sure be a great one to have.
Short story even shorter, now he is "6'7" and 242lbs"!
