Some great news from Angelique Chengelis at the Detroit News (Article Link Here):
Michigan freshman defensive lineman Ondre Pipkins, who was taken to the hospital last Friday after suffering a neck injury in practice, was back on the field Monday morning, a team spokesman confirmed.
Newly minted five-star DB Leon McQuay tells me when he's likely to visit Ann Arbor again: bit.ly/PrCdVt— Steve Lorenz (@TremendousUM) August 20, 2012
The last two spots seem to be being held for a combination of Treadwell and either Green and McQuay, which would give us two more 5-star players (assuming Treadwell get's the bump, as he is currently the highest ranked four star player) to add to our already spectacular 2013 class.
Any other mgoblog members going to this game? I expect that many in the Ann Arbor area will be there to see Shane Morris. I'll be there with my Dad and our tailgate crew, the boys are restless since they have to wait until September 8 for the first home game.
With Football season upon us and high schools in Michigan kicking off this week are any of you regulars at high school games. Who do you think will have big years? Which teams?
Also, what is etiquette for meeting mgobloggers in the non-virtual world?
I heard this awhile back about Stoneburner making the switch to wider reciever. I figured someone else would have posted on it already, but in a simple site search I didn't find anything and I noticed in Todays 2012 Recruiting: Devin Funchess, Brian compares these two guys. General consesus from the
douchebags Ohio fans that I know is that he was their best receiving threat anyway, so not sure how significant this is, especially with the way the ex-Florida coach tends to use his tight ends.
Anyway, here's a link on the Stoneburner thing.*
*Takes you to a crappy website, FWIW
Looks like 2013 RB Derrick Green visited Georgia on Friday and Auburn on Saturday.
He was quoted as saying his parents both got that feeling about Auburn again. This is DG's second visit to Auburn.
There is a rumor Derrick could announce as early as this weekend as his team opens on ESPN. There hasn't been any confirmation on that rumor as he keeps telling most reporters he plans on taking his officials.
I know a quick decision was good for the Maize and Blue but after his second visit to Auburn you have to wonder if they are now leading.
Shane Morris is now a 5-star on Rivals. Let us rejoice and rain praise upon him. But let it be known, Mike Farrell still hates Michigan.
You can see the number of stars on his profile: http://rivals.yahoo.com/michigan/football/recruiting/player-Shane-Morris...
Other commits in the Rivals 100 should have their rankings update as well, if someone at a computer would like to list them below, I'd be happy to paste them up here.
Shane Morris: Was 22, now 17
Henry Poggi: Was 52, now 58
Mike McCray: Was 55, now 81
Patrick Kugler: Was 73, now 88
Kyle Bosch: Was 77, now 92
Chris Fox, Dymonte Thomas no longer in top 100.
Thanks to DCAlum and AAB for putting the updates together.
