Just got a text from Rivals that OL Christian Pace has committed to Michigan.
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
We got crazy eyes. WOOOOOO!
If Rick Trickett as FSU is recruiting them that's a really positive sign.
Agree completely. Pace would be a very good pickup for us, imho.
Nice offer list for him. Great pickup.
Pace will replace Molk at center in a few years. I love this pickup since we need interior guys.
Great pick up. Centers are rarely rated high, and this kid is the #5 Center according to rivals (the #4 guy is a 4 star). I like it.
Getting the 5th best player at a position is a nice pick up (even if it's a down year for centers - don't know that, just throwing it out).
I've started to look at where a guy is rated for his position almost as much as I look at how stars he's getting.
Christian is certainly a guy that should be moving up in the rankings too. He just moved into the ESPN 150 watch list. Hopefully, rivals and scout give him another star. He's got a good offer list.
Come on down Torrain Wilson and Sentreal Henderson.
Wilson and Henderson would immediately make this one of the best classes Michigan has ever had.
not so fast my friend
After a year with Barwis he'll benchpress 400 lbs, and run a 4.9 Forty. All signs point to a great player in 2 years.
he will become a beast under Barwis.
In case you're interested, I did a write-up on Pace. I'm sure it doesn't compare to Brian's Googlestalking capabilities:
That was a nice writeup Magnus, no sugar coat. Seriously though, very in-depth. Seems like the offensive line is getting pretty deep with talent between the 6 redshirt freshmen, the 3 '09 recruits, on top of returning all starters from '08.
I didn't know much about him. Thanks Magnus. Nice pick up for the O-line.
