Is it the standard "it was fun" boilerplate, or does it seem like 1 or both are gone? Before the visits I thought Jones was gone, so that wouldn't surprise me...hoping we can hold onto Graves though.
At this point I'd be surprised if either come to Michigan.
There are some rumors about Graves having grade issues, too...he may be looking for an easier school to get into.
issues. Any of our redshirt OL candidates able to make the switch if needed?
if Ferrara moved back now that the OL depth seems to be taken care of. He seems like a good team guy, so I'd imagine he'd do it. THE TEAM THE TEAM THE TEAM
Ferrara will slide back to DT, and Patterson can rotate in there as well. I believe Helmuth is now at DT, as well. And, Saggessee (sp?) will figure in the rotation as well.
All in all, we have little proven depth, and two very young starters in Martin and Campbell (most likely). The recruiting classes from 2005 to 2007 are really killing us on the dline (and all over, really).
We're battling for both of these guys; their decisions will probably come down to signing day. Graves has visited back in October; Jones hasn't but according to Rivals he's coming down the last weekend of January, with signing day a few days after. Hard to guess what they're going to do; I'd say that Graves sticks with his commitment but Jones signs with another team. Regardless, we really need to sign both of them due to poor DT depth.
You sir, have the most informative headline of the weekend. Hat's off to you.
you are wrong. shut up.
DeQuinta Jones — DT — 4-star — Bastrop (La.): Maintained his soft verbal to Michigan, but said Auburn was now very high on his list.
OAN: What was the best part of your visit?
DJ: I would say the whole thing. I would say everything went good.
OAN: Was it better than expected?
DJ: I knew it was going to be a good visit down here, but it exceeded all of my expectations. It was a good visit.
OAN: When will you decide?
DJ: I would say it would have to be on signing day.
Sorry, i can't source it as it has yet to hit print.
Edit: To be clear, OAN is in Alabama and this will be for a paper in Alabama.
and is heading south. Happy trails.
I would be very surprised if both stay, considering the number of decommitments this year and their interest elsewhere.
I would be mildly surprised if both leave, considering the depth chart.
I would be not-at-all surprised if only one leaves, although I don't know which one.
