2013 elite 5-star safety recruit Su'a Cravens, who had recently listed Michigan in his top 5, has cancelled his midwest visit to Michigan and Nebraska due to a school conflict (finals). No big deal, right? Well, he has not pushed back his June 6th announcement date.

Little of note in this week's recruiting rankings, save for Illinois jumping up a couple of spots after breaking double-digit commits. Have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day; thank you to the incredibly brave people who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for their beliefs and country. Changes since the last rankings:
5-22-12: Nebraska picks up Dan Samuelson.
5-26-12: Illinois picks up Reon Dawson.

Jehu Chesson took 1st in the 100m dash (10.70s), 2nd in the 110m hurdles (14.15s), and 1st in the 300m hurdles (37.77s) at the Missouri Class 4 Track & Field State Championships. He lost the 110m hurdles by 0.01s which kept him from the clean sweep. He could be the sleeper of the 2012 class.

“I thought to myself, ‘Ohio State has got a lot of fans who do crazy things,’ ” Waugh said. “‘What can I do to make myself stand out? Something encouraging and positive.’”Well he definitely stands out now
I saw Derrick Green at a 7-on-7 tournament yesterday. I didn't watch him throughout the entire day, but I kept an eye on him whenever possible. Seven-on-seven isn't extremely helpful for scouting running backs, but I thought a report might be interesting since he and Jordan Wilkins are the only two guys left on Michigan's running back board.
I really enjoyed this piece, especially when the author describes Brian Kelly as "a very good football coach who hasn't yet gotten a handle on the larger burden of the job, whose red-faced sideline tirades against his players have only diminshed his stature". That was one of the most spot-on descriptions I've read.
What do you all think?
