Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Ay, Yo, Adrian
Michigan's picked up a commitment from NY DE John Ferrera, a three star guy who was totally off guru radar screen as far as I know. Michigan's sent out a second wave of offers to a bunch of three stars since this is looking to be a bit of a down year in recruiting. Ferrara appears to be the first to accept the offer.
You should probably be on the look out for MI FB/LB Obi Ezeh's commitment in the near future as well. That is, unless you think he's seriously considering Indiana or directional Michigan schools. Ezeh's commitment would essentially end Michigan's linebacker recruiting since Michigan already has three in the fold (MI 5* Brandon Graham, OH 4* Cobrani Mixon, and MI 3* Quintin Patilla). It should thus come as no surprise that CA LB Josh Tatum has dropped us. Those inclined to declare Ezeh a wasted scholarship would do well to review the Iowa game tape and look at David Harris and John Thompson.
The recruiting board is very out of date at this point, as I've gotten pulled away on things that are actually happening. I'll try to get things in order in the near future, if not by next week than definitely during the bye.
On the basketball front, MI C Tom Herzog has committed to Michigan State. Michigan's currently trying to catch up on a bunch of second-tier posts but at the moment it seems that the most likely outcome of this year's recruiting class is K'len Morris, DeShawn Sims, and a bunch of empty air occupying three scholarships.
