"Rodrick Williams Jr.'s 10-month old, 2-foot-long savannah monitor named "Kill" gets the RB some strange looks when they go for walks together."
The award for the "premier athlete of the fall season" in Northern New Jersey goes to Jabrill Peppers of Paramus Catholic, an "athlete" in the 2014 recruiting class whose current top five includes Michigan (and Stanford, LSU, Notre Dame and tSIO). He’s a 5-star on Rivals and a 4-star on Scout where he’s rated as the third best cornerback in the 2014 class. http://www.northjersey.com/sports/185972662_H_S__football__Special_honor_for_Paramus_Catholic_s_Jabrill_Peppers_for_PC_s_Peppers.html
Patrick Kugler will be taking his official visit this weekend, and it just so happens Cameron Hunt is also taking his official visit this weekend. I know a lot of people really like our chances of landing Cameron Hunt, including Tom VanHaaren. Cameron Hunt is a current Cal commit, but he seems to be really high on Michigan. That would give us 6 OL commit, all who played in All American games this year. Ohio State is in hot pursuit of Cameron Hunt as well, but I'm hoping the visit with Patrick Kugler in his ear sways him to go with the good guys this weekend.
Taking my official visit to Michigan this weekend!! #GoBlue
This draft is really weak at DB, super strong at DL. Do the Lions really draft another DL? I would love Damontre Moore, but he might be off the board at 5. No OL is rated that high, maybe one of the Bama boys.
1. Alabama - Big surprise
4. Ohio State
12. Notre Dame
The Wolverines are hoping they'll make the same improvement other recent teams have made in their coach's third season. Michigan went 8-5 in coach Brady Hoke's second season and never really seemed to recover from its 41-14 loss to Alabama in the opener. The good news is juniorDevin Gardner got some experience at quarterback after Denard Robinson was injured midway through the season. Gardner went 3-2 as a starter, completing 59 percent of his passes with 11 touchdowns in the five games he played under center. The Wolverines might have to replace four starting offensive linemen if junior left tackle Taylor Lewan leaves for the NFL draft. Six starters are coming back on defense, but they'll miss cornerback J.T. Floyd and safety Jordan Kovacs. Michigan's schedule won't be easy in 2013, with games at Penn State, Michigan State and Northwestern and home games against Notre Dame, Nebraska and Ohio State.
