I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
The Rivals100 for 2015 has been released, and two Michigan commits are both in the top-10(!).
George Campbell- WR (#7)
Damien Harris - RB (#5)
Nice to see some positive recruiting news for the Wolverines.
Edit: Shaun Crawford checks in at #96 overall as well.
UM 5 star 2015 commit Damien Harris was only given 11 carries this past Friday.
He gained 266 yards and 5 TD's, and came out of the game only two minutes into the second half.
Yeah. That be crazy. Must've ate subs.
EDIT: follow the link through to the original link, and it shows that Harris actually did even better. Still left two minutes into the 3rd quarter but finished with 13 carries for 352 yards. Should've played the entire game and gone for that ellusive 700-yards-in-a-game mark.

IIRC typically the breakdown of rating v stars is (edit: as pointed out below, since there's only 10 five stars right now, the breakdown is probably more like so:)
Interesting article featured in ESPN about this kid. Seems like a hard worker, with his head screwed on straight.
Mentions George Campbell and Damien Harris keeping up with him, hoping to sway him... Nice to hear
Sounds like Iowa has a shot with him, since they are the first to offer, and he is close with current player Broderick Binns.
Imagine what Mattison could do with him and Hand coming off opposite ends!!
LINK - it is paywalled
“I’d say that Michigan was already on top, but it just moved them up even more for me because that’s definitely the type of atmosphere I’d like to play in,” he said. “That makes me want to go there even more. To know that the fans are that into the game, it definitely moved them up.”
This will definitely be a name we will be hearing a lot of in the next few years.
You need ESPN insider credentials, but the read about this 2015 kid from Kentucky is worth it: http://insider.espn.go.com/blog/colleges/michigan/post?id=6724#more
When I read it I felt like I was reading the "Curious Case of Sidd Finch" SI article but then I realized it was no April Fool's Joke. Watch out if we get RB talent like this kid in the class early or on the team in general. Looks like we are early leaders for him, so GO BLUE!
Crazy stats as Fresh & Sophomore.
