The Gridiron Kings 7on7 Championship game is airing on ESPNU at 7pm. Shane Morris is the QB for the Midwest team.
Other players of interest include Terry Richardson, Ron Thompson, Wayne Morgan and Dwayne Stanford.
According to Angelique in the Kellen Jones article the roster has been released. However, I haven't been able to locate it (tried mgoblue.com, google searched). Has anyone been able to locate said roster, and if so what are some of the noticeable weight gains?
Once the news broke that the NCAA didn't find any new infractions with the Ohio State case naturally everyone turned their thoughts to recruiting. How would this affect any prospects that are considering Ohio State, and more relavent to Michigan how would it affect Kyle Kalis?
There has been some scuttlebutt among Ohio State fans that Kalis would eventually switch back to the Buckeyes despite the fact that a good amount of their fans trashed him on the internet for making the switch in the first place.
Kalis has been saying all along that he is solid to Michigan and won't re think his decision no matter what happens with the sanctions at Ohio State. Today he had this to say about the situation:
Despite all the speculation about the limited sanctions that Ohio State will receive, I've grown to love Michigan too much to ever consider going back. I'm excited to get up there next season and to start what I know is going to be a new chapter in Michigan history, and with the amazing class that my head coach Brady Hoke is putting together.
Pretty strong words for a soon to be high school senior. When I brought the topic up he laughed and said none of it was true. There's always speculation that happens with recruiting, and I never say never but this should reassure Michigan fans on where Kalis stands on his recruitment.
Kalis has also been recruiting for Michigan, and has already started to build friendships with his future fellow classmates.
The school confirmed it to The News, saying Jones "is no longer enrolled" at the university. So the rumors in general were correct. But the specifics remain mysterious -- the school wouldn't comment about the reason for the young man's exit.
