Would your rather sign a three star recruit this year and red-shirt him for a year of development or sign a four/five star recruit next year that could contribute as a true freshman?
While I realize that none of these rankings actually ever seem to make a difference BUT
A grade of B- and 7th in the conference, seems more than a little harsh.
Although State, Iowa, Penn State, Illinois also got a B- which puts us all into a tie for third based on the letter grade rankings.
Josh Helmholdt on Rivals just posted this:
"he has announced for UCF at this schools' press conference..."
I've been worried Willingham soured on us due to the large number of LBs we've signed already this year (4). But looking at our competition's recruiting class, UCF already has 6 (!) LBs signed up. I don't know what the rest of their LB depth looks like, but I can't believe we could lose out on a guy to UCF when they're already so stocked with LB recruits in this class.
Also, Willingham has 15 pounds on all of our other LB recruits. Seems like he could be ready to play a lot sooner, hope he goes blue at this 10 a.m. annoucement.
As for Robinson's backup ...
At the end of the football season, true freshman quarterback Devin Gardner filed paperwork to petition the NCAA for a medical redshirt year due to lower back problems.
On Wednesday, Michigan football coach Brady Hoke said that process is under way. He did not know the timetable for a decision.
via the twitters. Hope he makes it back to Ann Arbor in a year or two.
