“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
The Elite 11 QB competition has been on going and from all accounts he has performed admirably.. Just came across this video of him at the Elite 11 and decided some of our QB gurus would like to dissect it..
The competition got underway at The Opening today with a NIKE Training Camp which featured drills and one-on-ones. Scout's staff compiled a top ten for the day.
Other names you might recognize include 5-Stars Byron Cowart & Iman Marshall. Allen Trieu had this to say about Kirkland:
Darrin Kirkland - Linebacker, Indianapolis (Ind.) Lawrence Central Kirkland, a Michigan commit, has worked hard on his ability to run and move in space and that was on display today as he was one of the top linebackers in coverage. He could run with backs and did a nice job playing the ball in the air, coming away with a couple of interceptions.
I just stumbled into this announcement:
...which outlines Purdue's plans to sell beer and wine inside Ross-Ade Stadium starting this fall. The sales will be limited to the new patio area which will be set up in the south end zone, replacing the rickety old bleachers which were very recently torn down.
Those are the same south bleachers which for years were primarily occupied by visiting fans, meaning that Purdue will likely now designate part of north end zone as the visitors seating area. Purdue is still working on plans for a major renovation at some point in the coming years, and those plans likely will include building a permanant addition to the stadium where the south bleachers used to be.
The new patio area will be limited to a maximum of 1500 fans at a time and will be also limited to season ticket holders and students who purchase a special pass. Beer and wine and "typical tailgate foods" will be sold in that area, making Ross-Ade only the 2nd B1G Football Stadium to allow alcohol sales.
The World Wide leader has graced us with their Junior 300 list ..Michigan has 2 commits on the list so far. If anyone has a list of current targets that we are after and want to include in the discussion feel free
Erik Swenson is rated as the #20 OT
Messiah DeWeaver is rated as the # 11 PP QB
Not really earth-shattering news or anything, but an interesting change nonetheless.
I think we can all agree that there will be atleast 1 player who has his "coming out party" at a game or 2 this fall at the big house. Besides the obvious choice of everybody (Peppers), who would you say is in line to really turn some heads this year?
My choice happens to be on the OL with David Dawson. I think he's going to be a popular name by the end of the season.
