is there such a thing as an etsy genuis? if so, this is it.
Bad news. Kevin Williams fails to mention UM in an interview behind the Rivals pay wall. I had hopes for him, but as Tom stated before, things were not looking good for us. His final three is Neb, Wisc, and Sparty. Oh well...
Ohio DT Kevin Williams is going to Nebraska's spring game this weekend.
He said he's not sure if he's going to make it back up to Michigan, unless he can schedule something with the engineering department. He wants to commit shortly after his Nebraska visit anyways.
Here's the new part. He recently took a visit to Michigan State, and said the visit might have been his best yet. His top three now consists of Nebraska, Michigan, and Michigan State.
He said the MSU visit felt really good, the coaches were real excited about him being there, and the other players were a lot of fun.
It seems like Michigan might be losing out because of connections that this coaching staff doesn't have with Springfield's. As everyone knows, Kevin's head coach is friends with Bo Pelini, Nebraska's Head coach. He also happened to coach with, or play for some of the staff that is currently at MSU.
Take this FWIW, but if he was picking today, I don't think it would be Michigan. They might not have enough time to get him back on campus and address any issues.
OL Matt Frazier was supposed to be there. I haven't double checked with him to see if he made it in, though.
DE Brennen Beyer was there.
LB Ben Kline was there.
....and DT Kevin Williams was there, also. He said he had a really fun time, and more importantly, got a good understanding of the defensive scheme.
It looks like this is Michigan vs. Nebraska, at this point. He wants to make a decision soon, so all these visits are great news.
DT Kevin Williams ended up not going to Notre Dame's junior day. Not earth shattering, but it's good news for us. Any time a recruit doesn't visit another school, it's a good thing.
Part of why he didn't go is because his family had other plans, but also because he's not really interested in Notre Dame anymore. He doesn't feel that they have a big enough need for interior linemen.
Magnus had posted an article from a Michigan State site that said Kevin Williams had named them his leader. Too lazy to link to the article.
I talked to Kevin, because this seemed really odd. He just took a visit to Michigan, then on to MSU. I asked him about the remark made by the site, and here's what he said.
"No, they don't lead. I don't necessarily have a definite leader, but it's not Michigan State. They're near the top, I guess. Michigan is still at the very top, we were all very impressed with Michigan.
So there ya go.
