Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Back on the market. Will choose between OSU and Michigan. From Lions 247
Missed 32 FG for Cundiff, or two muffs by PR Williams?
As most everyone knows, Brady Hoke was in the home of Armani Reeves today. According to most "reports" the visit went quite well, and his mother really liked Brady. Tomorrow, Urban Meyer will be visiting, and that one is also very important. Tuesday coach Mattison will visit, and that will be the last in home visit before Armani's decision. I like our chances with Mattison getting the last visit.
Per al.com, former Michigan player and quarterbacks coach, Scot Loeffler, has been named Offensive Coordinator at Auburn University.
Congrats to him!
2013 OL David Dawson was kind enough to do an interview with us and he told us he would be honored to play for Michigan. He has recieved offers from Florida State, Indiana, Eastern Michigan, and Syracuse. We also have updates on a 2013 top 100 lineman who says Michigan will be his leader if they offer, and a top 2014 recruit to keep an eye on. LINK
The recruiting rankings are front-paged this week as we have a change at the top. Unfortunately, you probably know the change, and you're almost certainly not going to like it: Ohio State jumps Michigan after picking up four recruits (and the Wolverines losing Caleb Stacey, though that wouldn't have mattered in terms of the standings). Otherwise, the team rankings hold steady as we near signing day. Action since last rankings:
1-15-12: Taylor Decker changes commitment from Notre Dame to Ohio State. Illinois picks up T.J. Neal.
1-16-12: Penn State picks up Jordan Lucas.
1-17-12: Ohio State picks up Joey O'Connor. Gunner Kiel changes commitment from LSU to Notre Dame. Minnesota picks up Roland Johnson.
1-18-12: Ohio State picks up David Perkins. Minnesota picks up K.J. Maye.
1-20-12: Camren Williams changes commitment from Penn State to Ohio State.
1-21-12: Caleb Stacey changes commitment from Michigan to Cincinnati. Nebraska picks up LeRoy Alexander. Zach Jackson changes commitment from Illinois to TCU. Illinois picks up Justin Hardee. Minnesota picks up Ben Lauer.

*ESPN doesn't rate JuCos, so they are counted as unranked recruits for the sake of consistency (trust me, it makes sense when you look at the spreadsheet).
^The average of the average rankings of the four recruiting services (aka the previous four columns). The figure is calculated based on the raw numbers and then rounded, so the numbers above may not average out exactly.
