no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
I might be getting a little ahead of myself, but the exciting developments in the recruiting world got me thinking about what our lineup could potentially look like when the 2012 class are seniors. I have put together a projected 2015 starting lineup based upon our current commits and potential 5th year seniors along with their projected eligibility. It gives us a good idea as to where we are at so far and areas of need. The future looks bright and if some of the kids we are recruiting go blue, it will be even brighter.
QB: Shane Morris Jr/Jr
RB: Thomas Rawls Sr/Sr*
TE: Funchess Sr/Sr or Barnett Sr/Sr*
LT: Erik Magnuson Sr/Sr
LG: Caleb Stacey Jr/Sr
C: Jack Miller Sr/Sr*
RG: Blake Bars Jr/Sr
RT: Ben Braden Jr/Sr
SDE: Mario Ojemudia Jr/Sr
DT: Matt Godin Jr/Sr
WDE: Tom Strobel Jr/Sr
WLB: Royce Jenkins-Stone Sr/Sr
MLB: Joe Bolden Sr/Sr
SLB: James Ross Sr/Sr
CB: Terry Richardson Sr/Sr; Anthony Standifer Sr/Sr
SS: Allen Gant Jr/Sr
FS: Jarrod Wilson Sr/Sr
Not sure of the significance considering he didn't have an offer and is heading to JUCO for a year since he'd already spent his academic eligibility (but not his athletic eligibility somehow) so he probably wouldn't qualify at UM anyway.
Some strong offers though according to ESPN; Alabama, Illinois, West Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Iowa, Notre Dame, PSU...
Very telling? Sure, very telling.
Edit: Looks like he's a 4 star on both Rivals and Scout:
Mandel is a decent writer and I certainly hope he is wrong on this one, but it is an interesting an different take than what has been posted here recently.
I am waiting for the other shoe to drop, weren't there supposed to be new allegations coming in August according to the Yahoo! article early this summer?
Just got my MSP in the mail. Totally stoked to dig in. Anyone else get theres yet / what are your thoughts?
WVU applies self-imposed sanctions similar to what we are dealing with right now.
Former West Virginia coaches Rich Rodriguez and Bill Stewart have been found by the NCAA to have failed to monitor the duties and activities of graduate assistants and non-coaching staff members while they were at the school, a source said Friday.
User markjko.rn posted a link to this in the Jarrod Wilson open thread, and I didn't notice anything from Tim's Hello post about this. Josh Helmholdt, from Rivals, wrote up a short commitment piece on Wilson, as well:
"The kid is rangy, he's smart and since he's been with me every time that ball is thrown in the air, if it's picked off, he's scoring," Buchtel head coach Ricky Powers said.
He is the eighth prospect from the state of Ohio to commit to the Wolverines and the ninth Michigan commitment rated four stars.
Welcome to the fold, Mr. Wilson!
