Just an update in this slow period of the year. Football gave out two new offers recently that are of interest.
One is LT Ryan Hayes out of Traverse City (West). He's an athletic but raw LT prospect that many have wondered about recently. He is listed at 6'7 250lbs and is transitioning to the LT position from TE. He shot up 247's rankings recently. He could be a great tackle one day but he is definitely a guy who needs refinement.
The other is QB Joe Milton out of Orlando, FL (Olympia). Like Hayes, Milton is very raw but very athletic. He has a strong arm but would need some coaching. He's an athletic guy, runs in the 4.6 range and is listed at 6'5 220lbs. Stature is a lot like Terrell Pryor, but he is probably less athletic, but better in the pocket at this point in their development. He is a 3-star right now but is racking up a ton of offers now and will probably shoot up the rankings soon. He's got offers from Michigan, Tennessee, Miami (FL), Louisville, Arizona (who cares except RichRod wants him which tells you how athletic he is). He's getting attention from Florida State and Clemson too. This offer is probably telling as to where things stand with Dorian Thompson-Robinson. Brevin Jordan (DTR's teammate) recently stated that Dorian knows where he is going, and DTR has long maintained UCLA as his leader, even before they hired Jedd Fisch. Fisch's addition at UCLA also makes their offense much more attractive for a TE like Jordan. If UCLA can put together a winning season, it looks like we will strike out with all of our Bishop Gorman targets this cycle.
I put together a post about where Michigan's 2017 class slots in with every other recruit going back to 2000. In case you're unsure about how good this class is, the 2017 class includes 11 of Michigan's top 100 recruits during that 18-year span (LINK), and Donovan Peoples-Jones is the fifth-highest ranked guy in that time.
Is there some sort of Sparty conspiracy to keep canceling his court dates since they are in Lansing? It is known that he is suspended from football activity until the case runs its course.
Pre Bruce Feldman, the NCAA has levied new charges against Ole Miss which include the dreaded Lack of Institutional Control and a charge against Hugh Freeze for violating head coach responsibility legislation.
If the charges against Freeze stick he would be given a show-cause penalty and his tenure at Ole Miss would be finished.
Ole Miss has already self-imposed a 1-year post-season ban and will lose around 7.8 million dollars in SEC football revenue.
