Thomas Rawls will announce his decision on the 31st of January, it's between UM and CMU, although he doesn't have a Michigan offer yet.
That might change next weekend when he takes his official visit to Ann Arbor. Rawls has refused to reveal his new ACT score, because he wants to surprise people on the 31st. I think he'll inform the coaches next weekend that he has qualified, and then he'll get the offer that Fred Jackson has been DYING to give him.
Then of course he'll accept and become part of our class, and I for one would be thrilled. If you haven't seen his senior highlights, shame on you. Link below.
Does anyone know what the fate of the website that RR put up/had constructed. I went to the site a couple of days a go and it had a large "under construction" sign. It still had the big block M on it though. Anyone know what will happen to the site?

However, there IS somebody I am reminded of when I think of Denard playing in a Pseudo Pro-Set West Coast...
Except FASTER, and with a stronger overall arm.
I know that sounds heretical, but just remember the FITS he gave us for years. Denard could be our Troy Smith in a west coast, but so much better. Tell me that would be bad.
Good to see y'all again. 3 star DE/TE from right outside Columbus.
**He's deciding tomorrow**
From Allen Trieu: Keith Heitzman from Hilliard-Davidson, a Vanderbilt commitment. I saw it posted elsewhere that he was committed. That is not the case yet according to my sources. He has been offered though and is interested. He could play tight end or a defensive end. I tend to think with the new offense, getting a TE commit is important so my guess would be there.
