“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
Great story on Jabrill Peppers -- 2014 CB Target from Paramus Catholic, NJ who is listed at 6'0", 205 lbs and currently plays CB, RB and WR w/ offers from 50 Div 1 schools, including Alabama, Ohio, Florida, ND and Michigan.
Jabrill survived and thrived through significant adversity, including the incarceration of his father, Terry Peppers, and the murder of his half-brother, Don Curtis.
Through it all, Jabrill managed to maintain a phone relationship with his father and they are both looking forward to his father's parole next June. Terry deeply wants to remain involved in Jabrill's life and supports him to the best of his abilities.
"Terry works five days a week at the prison unloading and loading office furniture, earning about $180 a month. He sends the money to Jabrill." [NJ.COM]
Jabrill sounds like a great person, terrific talent and a mature individual who understands that life's ups and downs come fast and furiously. Hopefully, we will see Terry attend games at the Big House cheering on his son, Michigan's future star CB.
Vernon Hargreaves, an elite CB from Wharton (Tampa FL) received an offer from Michigan today.
Looking at his offer sheet and highlights, he's probably one of the highest rated CB in this class and may well be amongst the top 10 recruits in Florida.
Might be tough to pull from Florida but glad that we're offering top talent around the country.
