I just thought these were interesting little tidbits/confirmations:
Per Mark Snyder, Coach Mallory says that Dymonte Thomas will be strictly a safety this spring. I love this, clearly.
Per Nick Baumgardner, Coach Hoke says that Freddy Canteen is "truly a slot guy", which leads me to believe that he'll play pretty early, considering the only other true slot guy is Norfleet (and maybe Hayes?)
And per Zach Helfand, Hoke said that Noah Furbush cut his own cast off using a hedge trimmer because he wanted to play so badly. Early nominee for #want of the year.

His indicator of prospect contact has been spot on. He told us Hand wasn't coming. He told us McDowell wasn't coming. IMHO he has done a great job of tempering expectations long before any of us wanted to believe we were out of the running for these guys.
According to TomVH on twitter Malik McDowell has yet to sign and send in his LOI. It's been publicized that Malik wants to attend to MSU (and announced State during a ceremony this morning) but his parents (specifically his mother) don't think that MSU is the best place for him. Tom's latest tweet (@TomVH)
"There is definite drama with the Malik McDowell situation. HS coach doesn't know ehn he'll send it (sic) in letter of intent"
I'm a bit torn here. There's obviously something going on with this young man and his family that involves a huge life choice. However, possible SPARTY NO on NSD just after star rankings started to matter?
Who of our 16 signees do you think is being underrated by recruiting sites the most and why?
Well, Michigan wrapped up the National LOI day fairly early this year. Barring any late surprises, I thought it appropriate to appreciate Jabrill Peppers and his undying love for MICHIGAN. Go Blue!
