chance of bowl: 13.6%
I hate to be the one to ask about bad news... A friend told me tonight of an issue at Dr Phillips. A boy who lived in/played for our school district here in Carolina moved to the Dr Phillips district last year and is now playing for their Freshman team. He was just physically assaulted (??differing versions out there as to severity - hazing to serious beating??) in a varsity lockerroom incident, and his family appears to be looking for serious repercussions. So far, only one Varsity player has been disciplined, but it sounds like numerous players were involved. It sounds really bad, I'm wondering if you've heard anything from any of the recuits??
The story I've been told is that he was asked by a coach to go get some equipment from the Varsity lockerroom, and by entering broke some unwritten rulle about "no freshmen".
According to both Scout and Rivals, North Carolina TE Drew Owens has set an official visit for Michigan on Oct. 16th. Scout lists him as 6'5" and 230. 22nd ranked TE. Rivals has him as 6'5" and 227. 19th ranked TE. No dreads but a sweet fro' in the Scout pic.
This could be an interesting combo of running backs. And based on Brian's preview of IU's run defense, we could see someone with a breakout performance.
If you're keeping track, Michigan is recruiting RB Demetrius Hart, S Roderick Ryles, and S Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix from Dr. Phillips for the 2011 class. As I said yesterday, Roderick Ryles was just offered by Michigan and will be visiting for the Wisconsin game. They're also very much in the conversation with 2012 QB Nick Patti. You can add another teammate to the list with 2011 WR Chris Gallon (6'5", 205 lbs.):
Michigan is starting to come after me hard. They're looking at my senior film right now, and they said after that they might offer. Coach Smith has been in constant contact with me. He said they like me a lot, I just have to wait until they see my film.
Chris sent the Michigan coaches his junior film, and the first three games from this season. Gallon said they are recruiting him as a wide receiver, and if they offer, Michigan has a good shot with him.
I was supposed to go up to Alabama this weekend with Dee (Hart) and HaHa (Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix), but I'm taking my SAT so I didn't go. I'm going to be going to Michigan for the Wisconsin game though. We're all going up there together.
Gallon, Ryles, Patti, and as of right now Demetrius and Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix are all planning on being at the Michigan game, when they take on Wisconsin.
