I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
for driving with a suspened license. doubt he'll miss game time.
Just wanted to throw this name out there: Robert Nkemdiche.
Does anybody know if we have this kid on our radar? Check out the link I attached below. I think the "eye test" comparison to Julius Peppers is relevant. This guy has the potential to be the #1 recruit in his class.
We are going to put together a solid competitive team this year, which will build awesome momentum going into 2012. In 2012 our schedule is going to be real tough w/neutral Alabama (Hello D. Hart), @Nebraska, @ND, @tSIO. However, the 2012 national spotlight with our current coaching staff will be monumental in recruiting!
Quite frankly (if i may Stephen A.), I'm really looking at this season as a building block/learning & adjustment period to prepare for 2012. That doesn't mean they won't compete and win games, I'm simply implying I'm glad we put the new coaching staff in place this year and not for 2012.
At 6'1 225 Desmond Morgan has the ideal dimensions for a future at MIKE; however, with the lack of fullbacks on the roster (0 in 2012) and his experience as a thumping running QB in high school I bet 100 MGoDollars he is our starting FB as a redshirt freshman or sophomore in 2012.
McColgan is a 5th year senior. Hopkins is a B.J. Askew 2.0 at Big Back (not a true FB). And at his recruited position, we have a 3-5 deep at MIKE. Kellen Jones is in his class and is a MIKE (possibly a WILL), Ringer and RJS are listed at MIKE (although RJS may be a SAM and Ringer a WILL), and Demens has 2 years locked at starting MIKE.
Traditionally (as in the "old days" of Carr) many LB recruits would switch to FB and vice-versa (Obi was the most recent example). Morgan seems the perfect fit for both positions -- one of which is a major need
Any legs to this assumption? Crazy stupid, or, Crazy brilliant?
No big surprise, but he says reason he came to Michigan was because of Tony Gibson and the coaching staff. Also, he said he did not like Ann Arbor.
"I didn't really like it up here," Christian said. "I didn't like the campus, and really, I've miserable since I've been up here.
"I think it was just about me and what I'm used to being around; there's a difference between living in Pittsburgh and Ann Arbor. A big difference. A lot of kids like it here, and some don't. It just wasn't for me.
"So once the coaches left, there wasn't much holding me here. I was like, 'Why am I here? I don't know these coaches and they didn't recruit me.'
Not a complete surpirse and SIAP didn't find anything on the search
Although it seems its not written in stone just yet
I spoke with Pennsylvania RB Greg Garmon tonight and he told me that he's planning on making it out to Ann Arbor in one or two weeks. He has Michigan in his top three with Penn State, and has North Carolina as the leader for now.
He told me that this visit will help him to get to know Michigan better, which is important for his evaluation of the program. It sounds like Michigan has some ground to make up with North Carolina, but nothing that can't be over come.
