Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Andrew interviewed Terry Richardson over at TTB, and it's a pretty candid interview. Richardson talks about his current size and measurables, whether he plans to contribute in 2012 or not, and Coach Wilcher's influence on where Cass Tech kids go to school.
Michigan continues to recruit both Armani Reeves and Yuri Wright at the cornerback position, but recently the coaches have been in contact with another cornerback, who in fact is committed to Tennessee.
Kenneth Crawley, a soft commit to the Volunteers, is 6"1 and 170 pounds. He's rated a four-star prospect by rivals. You can see his junior film here.
Now, Crawley has been very ho-hum about this, but he admitted that Michigan, Michigan State, and Kansas all want him to visit. He seems very interested, but he's a respectful kid and doesn't want to talk about other schools while committed to UT.
Just something to keep an eye on!
Big Win and huge offensive output for Cass. Future wolverines in the story:
TRich shares his thoughts another Michigan victory over Notre Dame. (it feels good to say that)
A heads-up to anyone who is in the Ann Arbor area and wants to check out a lot of 2012 commits at once:
Farmington Hills Harrison takes on Cass Tech tonight at 8pm at Eastern Michigan University's Rynearson Stadium. Notable players include:
Farmington Hills Harrison: Mario Ojemudia (UM), Devin Funchess (UM), Aaron Burbridge (MSU, consensus 4*)
Cass Tech: Royce Jenkins-Stone (UM), Terry Richardson (UM), Laron Taylor (Iowa, 2* rivals, 3* scout, 3* 247sports), Ruben Lile (uncommitted, consensus 3*)
It should be a good game, as Cass Tech was unbeaten until it lost to Lake Orion last year in the Division 1 semifinals, while Harrison is the defending Division 2 state champion following a 14-0 season.
