Peppers at 10, which seems low.
This morning's scouting report is on Cleveland (OH) Glenville safety Erick Smith. Glenville, obviously, has sent a couple guys to Michigan in recent years after a long drought. Word is that Smith likes the Buckeyes, just like many Glenville products; but if Urban Meyer screws things up or if Brady Hoke turns on the charm, then Michigan is right in that next group of teams who could make a move.
Football news, you say? Gerry DiNardo visited Michigan's practice today and tweeted his observations. Here they are (if you'd rather read his tweets directly on Twitter, click here):
Should be a good year.
Just as title says..
Former Michigan DL Chris Rock is now a walk-on at Ohio State. He will have 3 years of eligibility remaining.— Tony Gerdeman (@GerdOzone) March 26, 2013
As a refresher, here's what Brian had to say when he left...
Rock hadn't played yet (obviously) and didn't make much impact in spring, so the departure shouldn't affect Michigan's projected performance in 2012 unless things get ugly at the three-tech spot. And since there are a couple of large incoming freshmen who may have beaten Rock out, this could be a writing on the wall type of scenario. Rock's star fell precipitously after his commitment to Michigan, something his recruiting profile acknowledged. He was a developmental guy, and if he wasn't developing meaningful wink wink ellipsis goes here…
Word in the offseason was that he had bulked up significantly from when he arrived and the coaches were toying with moving him from strongside end to 3-tech defensive tackle, but the potential move seems not to have mattered much. As you can tell from my May 2010 commitment post, I was never a fan of Rock's abilities; his TTB Rating of 58 meant he looked like a below average starter or a decent backup. It's odd that I compared him to Anthony Lalota at the time of his commitment, because neither one lasted long at Michigan. Lalota, of course, transferred to Rutgers and then didn't last long there, either
I didn't see this posted anywhere...
