From reliable sources coach Bobby Williams of Alabama visited Warren DeLaSalle. Not sure who he was there to see or speak to, but one can deduce it might have something to do with some left handed quarterback you may have heard of. I seriously doubt anything will come from it, but still interesting that Alabama is sending coaches.
Much longer version of Deveon's Junior year highlights now up on Scouting Ohio. More proof of the toughness and tenacity that make him a great addition to the class. Seems to show a bit more speed as well - not a burner but fast enough.
An article from Lake The Posts, a Northwestern blog, that discusses in depth the switch from Adidas to Under Armour. There are a lot of interesting tidbits in it, especially for those of you in the Chicago area.
Northwestern is the showpiece for Under Armour in the Big Ten and against the backdrop of the traditional palette of the conference’s traditional powers, they have a real opportunity to stand out. Do you think Nike is going to take risks with Penn State? Northwestern has something that no other Big Ten has and without the long-standing tradition that other schools have, you’d expect there will be some things they can do to really stand out.
It seems as if Northwestern is taking a calculated risk that probably will pay off for them in the long run. I can't wait to see what UA dreams up for their football uniforms.
This week's scouting report is on Bastrop (TX) Bastrop cornerback Antwuan Davis. Michigan currently sits outside his top five of Arkansas, Baylor, Oklahoma, TCU, and Texas, but the coaches are still pursuing him. I like Davis as a physical boundary corner, and he also has the speed to stick with receivers downfield. Lately it seems most Michigan corners only have one or the other, but Davis looks like a pretty complete player if he can stay healthy.
Long-time UMich fans may be familiar with Trevor Pryce. He played a couple years at Michigan in the mid-'90s before transferring to Clemson. (I'm hazy on what prompted the move.) He was a 1st-round pick of the Broncos and (as you'll see here) has had a long NFL career. This article contains his thoughts on retirement:
Not something I'd post mid-season, but it seems OK for now.
