In short, Meyer gave him an ultimatum that if he took that final visit to Michigan that they were going to pull his offer. Bold move on Meyer's end. The man certainly thinks highly of himself. I wonder if this will be a tactic he uses against us in other close head to head battles or whether it was a one time thing.
Su'a Cravens, the 5-star Saf. from California, has been rumored to be high on us as well as other schools in the Big Ten. The link below gives a brief highlight reel but more importantly states that 3 Big Ten schools will host him for official visits this Fall, and they are: Nebraska, Ohio, and MICHIGAN. Good to hear that we are not only doing well in Mich/Ill/Ohio but nationally as well.
What if we still bring in . . .
One more 4-star WR Ateman/Strinfellow/Massington
This class has the chance to be legendary!!
Are any recruits visiting over the weekend?
Sam usually talks about visitors on the Friday show, but the recruiting roundup was cut short.
Former Michigan Wolverine B.J. Askew (1999-2003), whose football career was cut short in 2009 after a traffic accident, won a civil lawsuit in Florida this week. The year before the accident Askew had just received the largest contract extension for a fullback in NFL history. Sadly, after the accident he was placed on the IR and cut at the end of the season, ending his football career.
The photos from today's practice are up on mgoblue.com, and I thought I'd bring a few things I noticed to your attention.
Devin Gardner IS still practicing at QB.
Taylor Lewan no longer has any need at all for his fingerstache. Also, his gunz look even bigger, methinks.
Will Campbell Q. Washington and somebody I can't identify (BWC) are Very Large People.
seriously... did Hoke shrink in the off season?
