"Sources close to the situation tell me that the Michigan coaching staff advised Falcon to forego his senior year of football and rehab his knee before enrolling at Michigan in January to continue his progress under the direction of the Michigan athletic training staff. When Falcon and his family decided to play his senior year, the Michigan staff was not thrilled, two knee injuries in one year was a deal breaker for Michigan."

And the picture of him and JH that isn't showing:
As reported in this and other news outlets, UCLA has suspended Offensive Line Coach Adrian Klemm for undisclosed NCAA Rule Violations.
With the recent success of UCLA in recruiting, it does leave you to wonder if this is part of the violations.
Material worthy of an otherwise slow day on MGoBlog.
Roquan Smith's coach Larry Harold tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that recruits are sold on coaches, so when coaches don't reveal they're leaving a school, recruits have every right to be upset.
“When you get recruited by Ohio State, Michigan, Alabama, Oregon and all these top schools – when you go visit them, they all have nice football facilities. They have good academic centers and beautiful campuses. Everything is basically the same everywhere. So what separates them? You know what the coaches sell those kids on? ‘That it’s about the people and the relationships.’ That’s all they sell the kids on."
He also slams internet posters critical of decisions by Smith and other recruits.
“I’m really, really, really getting upset because there are grown men sitting behind a computer commenting on stuff that they know nothing about."
And he's absolutely right. About all of it. It's an interesting read. The article also mentions similar situations from this year's NSD, including Mike Weber's committment to OSU.
