in town for free camps
I wrote up a scouting report this morning on Jersey City (NJ) St. Peters Prep running back Jonathan Hilliman, who was one of Michigan's first running back offers for the 2014 class. He released his junior highlights recently. I'm not sure how many of you will agree with me, but when he gets to full speed, he runs a lot like Chris Perry.
That's sort of a mixed bag, because while Perry was a very highly regarded recruit, I thought he was mediocre until his senior season; even then he was more of a workhorse than a truly explosive back, but it was still good enough to get him drafted in the first round.
Wow. Even though I never really read TSN much, it is still kind of sad to see a publication that old close it's doors. Just a sign of the times I suppose seeing as how Borders Books store (an Ann Arbor based company) closed it's doors last year and now the print magazines are starting to go by the wayside.
Further to the Mathlete's post, here's another way to look at luck this CFB season, per Football Outsiders:
both links are $. so a quick summary - luckiest team was OHIO, followed by LSU and Stanford. ND came in at 5. Unluckiest was our beloved spartans, followed by okla st. and michigan.
Looks like Braylon is headed back to the Jets. Good luck to him and kind of amusing considering he called members of the Jets organization "idiots" just a week ago.
An eyewitness at the crash scene is reporting that the driver Josh Brent had to be coerced into pulling his "friend" from the burning wreck:
"I didn't know Jerry in life. I never heard of him, I didn't know who he was," McWilliams added. "But I want people to understand that Josh Brent is not a hero. I keep hearing reports of how he was there to pull his friend from the fire, but he had to be coerced and pushed and begged and pleaded to get his friend out of the fire. And when he pulled him out, he just left him in the street. He didn't tell him 'Hang in there, help is on the way'. Nothing. He just left him there and I want the magnitude of that to be understood."
This report was made public shortly after the mother of Jerry Brown announced she wanted Josh Brent to sit with her at her son's funeral. I cannot imagine how on earth that could possibly take place now.
