things go poorly
Okay, quick question gentlemen, since I haven't seen it covered anywhere else. I know that we didn't pick up anyone with the 2012 class that projects to center, and that after this season, we'll have one natural center on scholarship. We've now completed our five man haul on the 2013 O line, and likely won't be taking any more O-lineman unless a top 10 guy wants to commit.
Question is, who in the 2013 class projects to center? They're all 6'5" and above, and all listed as OT's on Rivals.
Standout DT Montravius Adams from Vienna, GA has been recently offered by Michigan.
He holds offers from a host of schools including Alabama, USC, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma State, Nebraska etc.
He stands at 6'3" and weighs 280 and moves extremely well for his size. He is ranked 5 stars by 247 and 4 star by rivals making the Top 100 players in both lists.
Rivals #54 overall prospect, Patrick Kugler visited Michigan today. He enjoyed his visit so much that he tweeted "Wow Michigan was something special!", adding, #feelslikehome #GoBlue. I think this kid would be a great final piece to the OL puzzle, this is how he describes his game.
"I think the main thing that sticks out about me now is just the style I play. I go to the whistle. I know not many kids now are mean on the field and I play my last play every play. That really stands out to coaches."
Very interesting - before even receiving a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA, Oregon has already stipulated that they violated NCAA regualtions:
This looks like an attempt to accelerate the process. Hope the NCAA takes it's sweet time - the uncertainty in past cases has been worse the actual punishment (see Football-Ohio).
