It's pretty obvious that after going light on the OL in the past couple recruiting classes (attrition and Jacob Fisher be damned), Hoke and Co. probably arrived at Michigan following Brady Hoke's crawl across the country, only to ask, "Where's the Beef?" Numbers clearly necessitated a large recruiting class of offensive linemen, but looking at where we are now, and hoping to add one more (please, please, please be Josh Garnett), did we go a little overboard this year?
- Kyle Kalis
- Erik Magnuson
- Ben Braden
- Blake Bars
- Caleb Stacey
- AJ Williams (TE convert?)
- (hopefully) Josh Garnett
Clearly, when you take potentially 7 linemen in a class, some will be starters, and others career backups, but doesn't this just create the same problem 4-5 years from now when this entire class graduates? I'm just left feeling that after this class moves out, we will be left with the problem of replacing 4+ starters on our offensive line, which certainly doesn't bode well for a strong 2016 season. Am I thinking too far ahead, or would it have been more judicious to sign 5 this season, and 4 or 5 more next year?
Corwin Brown's defense team is claiming that the events at his home in August were connected to brain injury from his days as a player.
The whole thing is just sad.
Per our boy TomVH, the Ohio Tight End will be on campus this weekend. Second visit he has made in the last couple of months. If I had to bet who would be our next commit, it would be him. Legit need at TE, especially since it looks like AJ Williams will likely play OT at the next level.
According to Tom VH and Sam Webb.
Title says it all. The game is at 4pm Saturday, Jan 21 on the NFL network.

Really hope these two get a chance to get on the field and perform well.
