Football: Recruitin' Etc.
Michigan WR/OLB Quintin Patilla has committed after getting a camp offer. Patilla will come in as a linebacker. mgoblog generally likes anyone who gets offered at camp and a Rivals guru or two really liked Patilla as long as a year ago. Some concerns about his speed--which either is poor or does not translate to 40 times--seemed to be the only thing people worried about. Patilla's flexibility probably helped him get the offer. Michigan could accept a commitment from another linebacker past Graham, Patilla, and (presumably) Mixon and let everyone battle it out. Graham could end up at DE or Patilla at WR. As the #8 prospect in Michigan in what's regarded as a weak year in-state, he'll definitely be a three-star.
Also, Scout.com has released its initial Top 100 list with the ever-popular Myron Rolle at the top. Recruiting board will be updated within a day or two with the information. Initial impression is that there are a freaking ton of Ohio guys on the list, probably far too many. Current commitments Brandon Graham and Justin Boren are #12 and #29, respectively, and almost-commitment Cobrani Mixon is #79. Haven't had time to look at the list extensively yet but at first glance there is a lot of disagreement between Rivals and Scout, seemingly more so than usual.
