2015 Top 5 DT Tim Settle is attending the Michigan v ND game Sept 7 instead of Oregon at UVA. (Personally, I wouldn't think that would be a great idea to have a kid visit UVA while Oregon hosts a track meet on their football field)
Hand and Settle are coming together, and possibly another 2015 OL from VA, depending on if he has other transportation or not.
Tim doesn't have an offer yet, but he also hasn't been on campus yet either.
Re: Da'Shawn...once again, an unbelievable kid. His position coach and mentor is coaching at another school, and I don't believe he is learning anything from his new coaching staff. So AFTER two-a-days he will find time to head to Coach Harris' home, and will work on DL and hands drills. I watched him do moves he doesn't use in games, because he doesn't have to. Coach Harris teaches him a technique I either haven't seen before (because at 170 lbs I avoid the LOS at all costs) or because it is something unique. Various D1 coaches praise him for what he is teaching and it is probably a reason why 2 of the DL he's worked with are in the top 5 in their respective years.
In the USA Today paper this a.m., in addition to having Drake Harris pictured on the front, they listed the "American Family Insurance All-USA" football team - and it was loaded with Michigan commits: George Campbell, Mason Cole, Drake Harris, Michael Ferns, and Jabrill Peppers. I'm never quite sure how legit some of these All-American teams are and whether they've been "regionalized" to draw clicks. But a search on Google turned up the same list: http://www.usatodayhss.com/amfam/article/american-family-insurance-2013-preseason-all-usa-football-team. At the bottom of the article, it said: "The team was compiled by USA Today Sports' Jim Halley after consultation with high school coaches and recruiting analysts Tom Lemming of CBS Sports Network and JC Shurburtt of 247Sports.com". So, I guess make your own judgement. But either way, it's nice PR for Michigan football.
Most noteworthy quote and interesting development to keep an eye on: Doug Karsch says GOOD luck, rather than his usual BESTA luck
It's oficially official! UTL II is going to be the game of the week. It will not be on ABC due to NASCAR but it will be carried by ESPN which I think will make for the "Mush"berger and Herbie duo. Does this make us a lock for College Gameday? if so where do you think they will set up?
Many of you may remember 3* RB Jonathan Hilliman who showed some interest in Michigan a few months back. He commited to Rutgers today over the only other real contender, Ohio State. His offer sheet (Michigan, Ohio State, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, etc) suggests he is better than a 3*, and I thank Rutgers for taking talent away from Ohio State. Here is the article and here is his 247 profile.
What is your 2013 Jersey that you will be wearing this year? Number, Brand, Authentic, Replica, Name? Or will you be wearing the season shirt? I am currently in the market because I have dropped 130 lbs and my #2 woodson jersey no longer fits and is framed in my living room.
