Update to story that broke last night and has since fallen off the first page of board topics.
Storm Klein dismissed by Ohio. It seems that if the charges don't stick Urb has left an opening for allowing him back on the team.
The 2012 IFAF U-19 World Championship comes to a close today with Team USA taking on #2 seed Canada at 9:00pm for the gold medal. Logan Tuley-Tillman (#72) is starting on the OL (played LT primarily in first 2 games).
The game is being broadcast live on YouTube:
Players of note:

I thought I would start a new thread to discuss the action at the Opening today.
1. 7-on-7 pool play is going on today. Shane Morris opened on fire today as Land Sharks team rolled over Brice Ramsey's (UGa) squad.
Shane Morris' team RT @RecruitingESPN Land Sharks beat Vapor Carbon, 27-6
Michigan QB commit Shane Morris is on fire in game one. Making all the right throws.
Jake Butt caught the game winning TD as his team (also Mike McCray) won their opener.
2. Linemen 1-on-1 took place earlier this morning. Unfortunately due to HS regulations in MI and OH, David Dawson and Taco Charlton could not participate with pads and had limited reps. But Taco still got rave reviews:
#Michigan commit Taco Charlton is a very athletic DE - quick and long.
Ohio players can't pad up here but Taco Charlton, wearing just a helmet, is one of the quickest ends here #Michigan
247sports: The guys from states where you can't wear pads are going now. Taco Charlton has been dominant.
3. Kyle Bosch went home sick today. Wish we could have seen him participate and hope he gets better soon.
Michigan commit Kyle Bosch headed home from #TheOpening per his family. Illness.
Please forgive and delete if this has been previously posted. Otherwise, interesting power-play by a big-time recruit. On one hand, he's looking out for his boy. On the other hand, he's being a petulant child demanding his way. Curious as to how Coach Hoke would handle such a situation. My guess: we'll offer your teammate if WE (coaching staff) see fit, and we won't beg you to stay.
Not sure of the accuracy (Laquon tweeted Shane is his QB the other day.) but Scout has posted a listing of The Opening’s 7on7 rosters: here
M recruits seem to be spilt up:
Shane QB’s the “Land Sharks”.
McQuay, McCray, and Butt are on “Alpha Talon”, QB'd by Swoopes.
Kendall Fuller and Derrick Green are with Cooper Bateman on “Super Bad”.
Laquon is on “Alpha Speed”, QB is Hackenberg.
Jourdan Lewis, Alvin Bailer are with Max Browne on “Field Generals”.
