"This is really important to be here," Lewan said. "I'm here to give back and help out my teammate."
Disappointing, but best of luck to Khalid at Bama.
At least there's some good news possibly on the way later today.
Also: As a few posters in the comments below have said, Allen Trieu said Khalid was one of the "silent commits" that we've been hearing about over the past few weeks. Only 7 months til signing day!
Rockford kicker Quinn Nordin, who is ranked #1 in the nation by Kornblue Kicking and is a 5 star kicking prospect, will be taking only one more visit before he makes his decision.
That visit will be to Michigan.
The good news is that MSU just took a kicker today so that only shoots Michigan's odds at getting him up the charts.
His finalists are Michigan, Penn State, MSU, Georgia and Arizona State.
Nordin is also the #19 ranked punter.
Offensive Tackle Devery Hamilton, from Maryland (Gilman HS) will be announcing his college selection today between 3:30 and 5. He is down to Stanford (the preceived favorite), Maryland and Michigan. Michigan has been getting quite a few ballz selections.
Would be another great piece to the O-Line Drevno and JH are building:
Update: Selection time 3:45-4...
Tom Brady's morning went "very well" by some accounts.
This got me thinking about a report I saw on the World Wide Leader over the weekend. They showed the NFL rule for the range (in psi) for football inflation. Then they showed the following section which gave the punishment for violating the rule - $25,000 fine to the team.
It got me thinking about all the former QB's on TV saying " under inflating happens all the time, it's no big deal". Which I can understand that the QB would not think twice about getting an advantage (if there is one) at the risk of someone elses money.
If what I saw is true, I would think Tom and the Pats would be using this in their defense. Has anyone else heard of this fine? Or, do the Patriot's and Tom's fines fall under the "conduct detrimental..." area?
EDIT: Here is the segment from ESPN
The most popular college football ranking site, 247sports.com, has once again been the quickest to provide a ranking after a commitment to Michigan.
Benjamin St-Juste has been given a 3-star ranking by 247sports. This is his initial ranking and it may very well rise during the period until signing day as he is a relative unknown. He seems to be pegged as a guy who has a very good physical skillset and body build and hopefully, Harbaugh can mold him into a great college player. The 3-star ranking shows on the team page and the actual numerical score should be displayed starting tomorrow.
As you may be aware, 247sports was also the fastest to upgrade Dytarious Johnson to a 3-star upon his commitment to Michigan. Hopefully, the other sites fall into line and start to view our commits in the light they deserve.
