Just finished listening to the Recruiting Roundup on WTKA, and Sam says the coaches are telling recruits there will be 26 in this class.
It was an extended segment that affirms many of the things we already knew and has some new tidbits including basketball prospects. Once it becomes a podcast it's well worth a listen.
Thanks to MGoUser JMCWannaB for sharing these videos from the UofM Alumni Event in Washington DC. Here's the Q&A, here's the initial speeches from Brady Hoke, Red Berenson, and John Beilein.
So it now looks like I will be able to attend the NY Alumni Club's "Meet the Coaches" event with Hoke and DB tomorrow evening. If there is anything interesting said, I will do a write-up tomorrow night.
But, from what I understand, attendees have time to talk with Hoke and even ask questions. Any suggestions? Here's what I have:
1. Brady, did you really drink all of the been in Munsey?
2. WHo will start game 1 - Denard or Tate?
3. Do you get the OSU rivalry? If yes, prove it.
Serious and joke question suggestions are welcome . . .
Article on ESPN says that, upon further review, Scouts Inc likes what they see in Mouton:
We missed on him,” Muench said. “I don’t know I would have taken him that high, but it wouldn’t be fair to say it was a big reach.”
Muench, who said other NFL teams coveted Mouton in addition to San Diego, said there was a couple of reasons why Scouts Inc. under-ranked Mouton. They initially looked at Mouton, 6-foot-1, 237 pounds, as an outside linebacker, which several teams did as well. But Mouton will likely play inside linebacker for the Chargers’ 3-4 defense. Also, Muench said Mouton doesn’t have elite athletic ability and he may have been downgraded because Michigan’s defense was so poor.
“But look at him again, I think he is a guy who can be a contributor,” Muench said. “He has good instincts and he’s a good tackler … We can see what the Chargers liked in him.”
Was actually pretty surprised--but thrilled--to see him go so high as well. Here's hoping he kick-starts a new age of Michigan NFL alumni success.
