Mike Lantry, 1972
The Michigan coaches are back to work, and they're moving pretty fast. Here's a few new updates from tonight:
QB Cyler Miles (6'4", 215 lbs) Denver, Colorado: Miles is from the same high school as 2011 LB Leilon Willingham, and has been in contact with the Michigan coaches recently.
Coach Funk talked to me about the facilities and their interest in me. They haven't offered yet, but they said they want me to be their number one quarterback for this class. I might try to make it up there this summer, I'll have to talk to my parents about it, though. Leilon told me how great the facilities were when he went there, and how they were talking about me.
Miles has offers from ASU, Colorado, Notre Dame, and Vanderbilt. He's also hearing from LSU, Washington, Arizona, and FSU. Miles said academics, football tradition, good coaching, and the offense will factor into his decision. Here's an interview he did this past year.
OL Andrus Peat (6'6", 270 lbs) Tempe, Arizona: Peat was offered by Michigan tonight, and told me he is interested in hearing more from the coaching staff. His brother, Todd, just signed with Nebraska this past year, and will be pretty difficult to get. Andrus has offers from almost everywhere already, and says he has no leaders. Michigan would have to do quite a bit to land him at this point, I'll have more from him later.
OL Seaver Myers (6'6", 290 lbs) Friendswood, Texas: Seaver is a big offensive lineman that has also been in contact with the Michigan coaches, but no offer yet. He told me that he's very interested in Michigan, and wants to hear and see more from them.
I've been building the relationship with Coach Funk, and we've been getting to know each other lately. I sent him my highlight tape so we'll see. The tradition at Michigan is unbelievable and the program is legendary. Michigan was always my second favorite team behind Texas growing up, I couldn't tell you why though.
Distance might play into things for Myers, and was open about that. He did say that if the Michigan campus blows him away and he feels comfortable then he would probably be ok with it. If Texas offers they will be the team to beat, he is also very interested in TCU, and Texas A&M outside of Texas and Michigan. You can watch his highlight video here.
WR Bryce Treggs (5'10", 157 lbs) Bellflower, California: Keep an eye on Treggs, he told me he has been in contact with the Michigan coaches. He likes the spread offense, and has been hoping to hear from Michigan.
