I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
-Mathis to announce this week
-Oregon is the favorite (as we know)
-Kurelic's surprise pick is Michigan (no supporting evidence)
-Bill Kurelic does the Midwest Recruiting Blog for ESPN Insider
It would be really surprising if Mathis picked us at this point, but it does feel like there's an underground movement amongst the analysts for Mathis to UM.
I'd like it personally, especially with Witty not qualifying...
I just got this press release in my inbox from the Detroit Lions. Looks like Dior Mathis to me...

It seems that Mr. Mathis likes Oregon a bunch and is developing a crush on our little brother. At least, that is what I've heard. Maybe Other Brian or TomVH can correct me if I am wrong.
Here is my thing, I think that we should recruit instate. I really do. I love seeing the home grown playing in the big house. But I must admit, I am growing a little weary of this kid. It is like he thinks he is the Otter version 2.
