this guy evidently hired to work for AD
Chris Pool from ESPN is reporting that 2011 Illinois OL Graham Glasgow (6'7", 295 lbs.) is visiting Michigan this weekend. He's been to Minnesota and Ohio State, and he was also at Michigan for the Iowa game this year.
Here's his film. I'll have more later.
**EDIT: I confirmed with Graham that he will be in Ann Arbor for an unofficial visit this weekend.
Coach Hoke's recent interview with Wojo was a very detailed session and Coach did not hold back on his perspective. Interesting read. Link: Click Here
The part that hit home the most:
"...I've heard from guys who played here from all different eras. It just pisses me off that Michigan got to that. We can't let that happen because at the end of the day, this is about Michigan, period. It's not about the coach, it never should be, or will be. And for us to be a fractured program, that's embarrassing to the memory of Yost and Crisler and Schembechler."
Q. You always say 'Ohio' instead of 'Ohio State.'
Q. How come?
A. (Smiles.) I don't know.
Hoke-a-mania - its on
According to Scout's Chad Simmons...
Was just told by Mrs Brewer that her son Connor Brewer has committed to the Texas Longhorns. Will be one of the top 2012 QBs.
Well...damn. He goes to Chaparral (HS of Craig Roh and Taylor Lewan) and is probably the most complete QB in the 2012 class. Being so close to him, Tom was a big fan of his, and hoped we'd pursue, a feeling he professed as recently as yesterday.
Thus begins likely another top 5 class for Texas. In case you're into torturing yourself, here are his highlights.
I wrote about Ohio DE Ifeadi Odenigbo in my Weekly Update today, and he told me Michigan extended him an offer just a few hours ago. Mark Smith, the new linebackers coach, was the one to give him the offer.
Ifeadi really likes the academic side of Michigan, but as I said in my Weekly Update if Ohio State offers he very well could end up a buckeye. Because there are so many options at defensive end this year, he's not even sure if Ohio State will offer. I really like his film, and I said this before but he somewhat reminds me of Jermaine Cunningham who played for Mattison at Florida. Cunningham came in around 194 pounds, and plays around 260 pounds for the Patriots now.
I'm not sure if embedding video is working posts, so if not here's a direct link to his film.
The post below about Kenny Demens prompted me to wonder (or re-wonder) about the arrangement for student-athletes and the cost of medical procedures.
- Does the university pay for health insurance through a typical provider? Or do they cover the cost of surgery / maintenance suffered through participation in a varsity sport out of pocket?
- Do universities with affiliate hospitals have an advantage in this regard?
- Are there any benefits different for non-scholarship athletes and/or former athletes?
- Is the practice regulated by the NCAA?
If anyone can provide some answers, I would be much obliged.
