in town for free camps
Via Sam Webb from last night (didn't see any posts). I asked if it was Reon Dawson and didn't get a response back. Anyone have any guesses?
Another elsewhere-committed defender expected at #Michigan this weekend. A kid not mentioned before
Not mentioning name yet so as not to introduce the complications that MAY preclude another potential visitor from making it in.
Interesting report listing the top 25 academic football teams.
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.
