Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Henry Poggi a defensive lineman from Baltimore, Maryland, is planning a second visit to Michigan. He's likely a pretty high 4 star on all the major recruiting sites, so this is a pretty big deal. He'd be an important get for the class of 2013.
Subject says it all. I wonder how close this will end up being.
I was just informed by a long time Wisconsin fan that Wisconsin puts the Michigan football game in front of all others, we are their biggest rival. While there is a natural rivalry with Minnesota, they want to beat Michigan even worse. Interestingly enough, I had no idea that was the case. When pressed for the reason, it was because we were so arrogant for so many years when we were consistently beating them. My reply that "Michigan likes to beat Wisconsin but we have more important rivals that we focus on" may have been a poor choice of wording that somewhat validated the person's point. However, I still am not sure I really believed the premise beyond a single person's beliefs. Has anyone on the board heard this before? Is this true?
Shane Morris has yet to get a 5th star, and some targets have gone up/done. I am pretty confident though that Michigan's entire class could easily be on here, which says a lot on how good this class could be. This class will be epic!
Shane and Dymonte have been recruiting ninjas!
Kevin Koger, TE, Michigan -- Koger was lost for much of the past three seasons in a Michigan offense that had little use for a tight end, but he displayed NFL ability in a big way. Koger was a dominant blocker all practice long, stopping opponents dead in their tracks. He made a terrific 25-yard reception down the seam in scrimmage, displaying natural pass-catching skills. Koger lacks the foot speed to be a true downfield threat, but at a position that's thin on talent in April's draft, he could be the biggest sleeper of them all.
