Is there any news about the recruitment of Kevin Sousa with the new rumors (?) that Marquise Williams has committed or is going to commit to Virginia Tech? Is Michigan going to work harder to protect Sousa's committment if Williams comes off the board?

FL RB Demetrius Hart
Now, the gory details:
Hart, a senior speedster who has orally committed to sign with Michigan, scored four times on runs from scrimmage, and also took a short pass 38 yards to the end zone and added a 68-yard punt return TD in another signature performance for an ever-humble star.
"Congratulations to my O-line, they've been working hard," Hart said of his performance. "That's the fruit of their efforts. It was a team effort, not just me."
Hart rushed for 129 yards on 18 carries and totaled 286 on runs, receptions and returns.
Hart is now the single-season scoring record-holder for Central Florida, as well as career. He will be invited to the US Army All-American Bowl on Thursday (at the start of 'A' lunch, of course). Official stats below come from the Dr. Phillips website.

MI DE/LB Brennen Beyer
"From not winning a playoff game to coming within one game of winning it all is quite an accomplishment," said Beyer, after his team lost to Lake Orion, 21-13, in the state final at Ford Field Saturday. "I love all my teammates, but there is no question this was a disappointing loss. I really felt we could have played better."
There's even mention of getting ready for Ann Arbor:
He plans to speak with the Michigan coaching staff in the coming weeks to get a better understanding of how he can best prepare himself for the rigors of Big Ten football. "I know I will be hitting the weight room, but I will want to get a (training) plan together," Beyer said. "I just want to be able to contribute as best as I can next season."
This week: Plymouth's season is over, they finished 11-3 and State runners-up.
FL CB Dallas Crawford
“He did what Sammy does,” Crawford said about his favorite target. “That’s what we live for. We practice the two-minute drill every day. That’s what we wanted. They gave us a shot, and we completed our task.”
He had an impressive day statistically, as well:
Crawford finished with a season-high 339 yards passing and four touchdowns.
That came on 14/21 passing, though he also threw two picks (just his second and third of the season). Dallas also rushed 12 times for 65 yards. There are four quarters worth of video in the above-linked article, so check it out. Here's the fourth:

OH OL Jack Miller
St. John's finished the season 11-2 with both losses to Toledo Whitmer (in the second in Round 3 of the State Playoffs). Miller was also named 1st-Team All-District, and the District Lineman of the Year. Also 1st-Team All-State.
OH DE Chris Rock
DeSales's season ended at 5-6 with a loss in the first round of the State Playoffs.
TX LB Kellen Jones
St. Pius X's season finished with a 10-3 record and a loss in the second round of the TAPPS playoffs. Jones finished with 110 tackles, 25 for loss, and 7 sacks, to go along with 3 fumbles forced, 2 recovered, and a punt block.
OH CB/S Greg Brown
"Greg Brown had an outstanding year," Kidwell said. "He could have easily been the offensive player of the year, too. We attacked people all over the field with him."
Brown had 20 catches as a receiver for 460 yards and four scores. His yardage was 10th all-time on the Ross single-season receiving list. He added 450 yards on the ground rushing on 58 attempts, adding seven more scores.
Yay Greg Brown.
MI CB Delonte Hollowell
Cass Tech finished the season 12-1 with a loss in the State Semifinals.
Goddamn I can't wait to see Hart suiting up in Ann Arbor.
By the way, I think you have an error Crawford's passing stats - it lists 17 regular season TDs and 5 playoff TDs, but 23 total.
Wow...Dee everything i read about Dee makes me more excited he's coming here....
I'm almost worried that he's running for too many yards and setting too many records during his senior year. He's going to need to do some serious resting up before he hits the gym with Barwis!
What the hell did you post to get so many damn MGoPoints
Hart seems like a very likable, humble kid similar to Denard. I think he'll go down as one of my all-time favorite players someday. I always hear him stressing family and team.
Yeah I agree. Every time these videos are posted, they show the guy hitting 45-50 yarders regularly. At least let the kid be preferred walk on or something.
Do you think you could bold the rows for sub-totals and totals on your stat charts? It messes with my head when I'm looking at retern touchdowns. Then again, I'm also leagally retarded.
but a whole lot of losing seasons for most of these guys' teams.
i mean, i know the schedule DeSales plays, and 5-5 is probably par for the road, but then you expect them to win a game or two in the playoffs.
and a qb from a 1-9 team?
like i said, i know that means nothing, just kinda pops out to me today.
Umm...by my count 11 of these players had winning seasons and 3 had losing seasons so saying "a whole lot of losing seasons for most of these guys" is just factually incorrect.
If Dee decides NOT to come here for whatever reason, it will be like the Dorsey trainwreck x2 on the dong.
Why did you even say that?
With your avatar, I can understand your worry when it comes to talk of dong punches.
There's a rumor that Dee Hart has changed his commitment to Alabama. Hopefully there's no truth to it, but I'm definitely concerned.
At least that he will de-committ, something having to do with Justice Hayes but reading between the lines I think it's the coaching uncertanty.
If it's because of Justice Hayes, then good riddance. Not interested in dealing with a kid who is that worried about a little competition.
I also suspect it's the coaching uncertainty, though. I'm afraid Hart may not be the last if this doesn't get settled soon. Hart was going to enroll early, too, wasn't he?
