it's a major award
The Columbus Elite 11 Regional QB competition is today at 4pm. Shane Morris is competing against Ryan Burns (Stanford), Malik Zaire (Notre Dame), Matt Alviti (Northwestern), Damion Terry (MSU), Kyle Bolin (Louisville), Mitch Trubisky, and even Jalin Marshall (Ohio). Other participants of note: DeShone Kizer (2014), Tyler Wiegers (2014), and Jayru Campbell (2015). Here is a preview on ESPN:
Hopefully, Shane has a better camp than in Dallas and gets his invite today.
Also, the Columbus Nike NFTC camp is tomorrow morning. In addition to Morris, other Michigan commits participating are Taco Charlton, David Dawson, Jourdan Lewis, Mike McCray, Logan Tuley-Tillman, and Khalid Hill. Other commits of note: Ohio commits Marshall, Cameron Burrows, Billy Price, and Alex Anzalone; Sparty commit Jonny Reschke; Notre Dame commit Jacob Matuska. 2014 Michigan players to watch: Drake Harris, Damon Webb, Gary Hosey, Deon Drake, William White, & Lorenzo Collins. Preview on Scout.com:
Should be an interesting weekend as will probably be a large collection of Midwest talent competing against each other. Look forward to hearing the reports to see how our commits perform. I will try to add the twitter handles of the ESPN experts covering the events later (or if someone has them add them below) for real time updates on the competitions.
Tommy Rees wasn't charged with the felony and was instead charged with 4 misdemeanors. Calabrese was charged with 1 misdemeanor.
Rees and linebacker Carlo Calabrese were arrested after a confrontation with police who arrived at a “loud party” less than a mile from campus. Calabrese, 21, was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct, while Rees, 19, faces two misdemeanor counts of resisting law enforcement and one count each of battery and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor.
According to prosecutors, Rees refused to stop running as officers pursued him. A passing cabdriver pulled over in a position to block Rees, prosecutors said, and Rees lifted his right knee into the lower chest area of an approaching officer, “knocking the wind out of him.”
The cabdriver grabbed Rees “in order to keep him from running away,” prosecutors said, and Rees was pepper-sprayed when he continued to struggle against police and the cabdriver on the pavement. That resulted in the misdemeanor battery charge for what prosecutors deemed “rude, angry or insolent” contact.
During the incident, Calabrese attempted to “intervene on behalf of Rees,” Trent said, and allegedly told officers, “My people will get you.”
Members of a crowd witnessing the incident pulled Calabrese back, according to police, but Calabrese broke free and repeated the “My people will get you” comment and subsequently was arrested. He posted $150 bond and was released.
I'm pretty sure that this wasn't posted yet. I went through the last Rees thread and no mention of charges were given. If it was, apologies and delete this.
So many late starts.

Apparently involved in a rollover near Brighton.
Glad Tom is OK, seriously though.
Too off topic? Fairly new at this..
Sure it's way too early, but what the hell. 247 has put out their list of the top 25 recruits in the 2014 class, many of whom already hold Michigan offers. Most notable is Malik McDowell, DE out of Detroit, listed as #23 in the nation (#1WDE).
