"I am insane. I am childish. I once drank an entire bottle of wine while watching Michigan and God's favored child Denard Robinson lose in Ohio Stadium to an undefeated Ohio State team BANNED FROM BOWL COMPETITION FYI JUST WANTED TO MENTION THAT FOR NO REASON."
Wow, never thought I see those words come out of anyone's mouth with a straight face. That's Frank Clark, TE from Glenville, talking about his visit on the 21st today in an espn insider article.
I hope this is a good sign going forward for us having a shot at future Glenville prospects.
Thought I would share this in case anyone was interested. obviously way early, but gives you a good indication who has started out hot on the recruiting trail (Texas @ #1 with 20 commits 8 of which are in the ESPN 150 - holy crap!)
Nothing real surprising at the top, but here's a couple of things that jumped out at me:
Stanford and Washington look to be starting off very well (13 &15 respectively). They both have a lot of commits, but only two 4 stars each so far.
Kentucky @ #20! 9 Total commits with 1 four star commit. What's up now Calipari!?
Mississippi St right behind Michigan @ 24. By the numbers, they have an identical class as us so far - 2 four stars and 3 three stars.
Anyway, here's the link to check out.
This is an offer that I was expecting to happen sooner, rather than later. QB Brett Hundley out of Chandler High School, in Arizona, received an offer from Michigan today. "They called my coach, Coach Ewan, and then he told me they had offered," said Hundley.
This one is exciting for me, because it's another Michigan recruit in my home state. I saw Brett play this past season, and he's the real deal. He's a 6-foot-4, 210-pound athletic dual threat quarterback. He says his strengths are, "Leadership, mobility, I'm coachable, and I have a pretty strong arm. I do think I need to work on my footwork, though." I would add that academics are a strong point for Brett, since he carries a 3.9 GPA.
Hundley holds offers now from Arizona, ASU, LSU, Oregon, Nebraska, Stanford, UCLA, Washington, and Michigan just to name a few. He hasn't started to focus on recruiting yet, and told me, "No one's in the lead right now. Everything is wide open for me. I'm going to start taking trips in June, or July. After that I'll start all my officials, when I'm allowed to." When asked if Michigan will receive one of those visits, he said, "I'm definitely going to talk to my dad about that one."
Chandler High is in spring practice right now, and I will be heading out to watch this coming week. I'll have some practice footage, and possibly a video interview sometime later this week.
