Thought everyone could use some good news.
2011 North Carolina ATH Kris Frost told me tonight that Michigan is his leader, and that he's, "Still loving Michigan."
He plans on making it up to Ann Arbor in the summer time.
Here's a pretty cool video of his team, he's #4.
OL Tony Posada from Plant High School told me he was offered by Michigan about a month ago. He's under the radar, but he's 6'5 and around 290 pounds. There's not a lot of info about Posada, but I think more and more schools are going to start offering.
He's #75, if you want to watch their team highlight films.
He told me he will be visiting either in the spring or summer, and that Michigan is in his top three.
Being from MD, I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised at the amount of talent that seems to be coming out of the State. I know it's no Texas or Florida by any stretch of the imagination, but it seems that pretty consistently over the past couple of years there has been at least one Elite (5*) player from MD; and a likelihood of this happening again with offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.
It also seem that we are recruiting pretty consistently out of the Mid-Atlantic region(Maryland in particular) since RR has arrived.
Can anyone tell me, since I did not follow FB that much in High School, has MD always been a place which U of M has tapped into for talent, or this just recently? I know that several kids from DeMatha (my cousin plays there) were given offers last year for instance.
Is this an area where we are trying to develop some pipelines with, because I know right now the general thinking of the majority of kids is that if you are good enough, Penn State or OSU are the places to go? However, A lot of the schools that are producing these elite players (DeMatha, Good Counsel are the two consistent/main producers) are from very good private schools where education is actually quite good. I would think that this would give us an advantage.
What are your all thoughts?
So Conway mentioned that Michigan told him he was one of the two outside receiver's offered this class. Any guess on the 2nd?
Action since last rankings:
2-17-10 Northwestern gains commitment from IL CB Jarrell Williams.
2-18-10 Michigan State gains commitment from MI ATH Onaje Miller
2-20-10 Michigan gains commitment from MI WR Shawn Conway
|Big Ten Recruiting Class Rankings|
|Rank||School||# of Commits||Rivals 250||Scout Average||ESPN 150|
I'll only make charts for the teams that currently have commits. Rivals 250 means that a given prospect is on the Rivals 250 to Watch, and ESPN 150 means that a prospect is on the Watch List for the ESPNU 150. Scout ratings are on the 5-star scale.
|#1 Ohio State - 2 Commits|
The Buckeyes start their recruiting class with a couple bigtime defensive ends.
|#2 Minnesota - 2 Commits|
Minnesota gets a good start to the 2011 class, but let's be honest: they'll both just end up decommitting anyway.
|#3 Michigan - 3 Commits|
The Wolverines pick up an in-state sleeper at Junior Day.
|#4 Michigan State - 1 Commit|
The Spartans grab a Lansing native who will probably be a running back.
|#4 Northwestern - 1 Commit|
Northwestern gets on the board with a local product that hasn't caught the attention of the recruiting sites yet.
It seemed as if the coaches were really putting the full court press on Zettel. During the first half and halftime I noticed Gerg and Coach Frey around him most of the time and RR sat next to him the whole second half.
Gerg also spent a lot of time talking with what appeared to be B. Beyer (I was in section 27 opposite end from players)in the first half. This made sense as they are recruiting him as a DE.
Aundrey Walker is a massive human being. I don't know if we have a legitimate shot at him because of his HS (Glenville), but he is hard to miss and I would love to see him on the Oline.
