2012 football recruiting
Jehu Chesson took 1st in the 100m dash (10.70s), 2nd in the 110m hurdles (14.15s), and 1st in the 300m hurdles (37.77s) at the Missouri Class 4 Track & Field State Championships. He lost the 110m hurdles by 0.01s which kept him from the clean sweep. He could be the sleeper of the 2012 class.

Ohio North-South Classic at 4pm today. I don't think there is any TV coverage, but some writers are live tweeting it like Marc Givler from Buckeye Grove:
Willie Henry, Allen Gant, Tom Strobel (North) and AJ Williams (South) are playing in the game along with a host of other recruits from Ohio and Sparty. Other players of note to Michigan fans: former Michigan commit Caleb Stacey and Sam Grant.
Here is a link to the rosters:
Bill Connelly, of Football Outsiders and SB Nation, has put together preliminary 2012 season rankings of every team. They incorporate last year's ratings, how many starters are returning, and recruiting rankings to guess how other gaps will be filled.
The F+ rankings last year were pretty kind to Michigan overall, rating the team 12th overall. Because of a high number of projected returning starters (16), and a solid recruiting haul the last two years, that ranking is up to 8th.
Unfortunately, Alabama remains #1 with a button.
Other Michigan opponents:
Air Force: 112th
Notre Dame: 12th
Obviously this is all subject to change, and much too early, but an interesting first look at how things look from a purely statistical point of view.
So I hear that today could be big in recruitment, with lots of prospects deciding later this evening. 2-3 awesome recruits commiting to M would be the only thing that can cheer me up after the B'ball debacle.
Scout.com says Kozan is deciding today between Iowa and Michigan.Some recent reports and our shifted focus suggest he may be headed to Iowa, but I still want to believe that he will show up in AA with Jordan Diamond in Fall.
Speaking of which, what's the decision timeline for Grant, Diamond, Reeves?
Hey guys, I just posted a Recruiting Roundtable that features Ace, Magnus and DGDestroys among others, hope you enjoy: LINK
It's an Insider article, but the thread title basically says it all. And yes, we're in his top three, along with Stanford and Notre Dame.
