Jeremy Jackson (2010 wide receiver/Fred Jackson's son) has committed to UM.
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Saw a bunch of random internet stuff on this. Varsity Blue has a post up about that and Marvin Robinson:
Also, is the forum software seriously incapable of parsing down links itself?
This kid has offers from all over the place (Florida, Texas, Stanford). Another great get for Michigan. If Marvin Robinsion commits as expected at MSU game, it will be a monsterous start to the 2010 recruiting season. Line em up!
It's on Rivals and Scout now.
He's like, the opposite of the slot midgets we're bringing in this year. He's like a stork.
can you give me a feel for what sort of star rating we can expect out of some of the 2010 kids (Miller, Jackson, Robinson, Robinson's brother)...also, is there any good places to go for early 2010 info? All i've found is the Varsity Blue early board. Any good places with early ratings and such? One further question...any guesses on how many 2010 schollies will be available? Thanks
According to Brian's Recruiting Board, we are going to have about 22 scholarships available. As he said, that number might change with attrition and such
At the risk of shamelessly plugging, my own blog has a 2010 recruiting board up which, with an assist from Tim of Varsity Blue, will be updated by Friday.
As for ratings, it's pretty much a lock that M-Rob will be a universal 5-star. He's a legitimate top 10 nationally kind of guy. Miller might be the best WR in the state of Florida right now, and to take a page from MGoBlog's book, seems like a "4.5" star type. I'd guess he'd be around Stonum's rating, hovering near top 50.
Jackson's slightly harder to read. I think he'll be a solid 4-star, but in terms of placement, I've heard varying reports. Some think he'll be in the top 100, others think he's more in the 125-150 range. Regardless, 2010 recruiting is off to a blazing start.
Can't say about schollies yet. Still too early, and there will no doubt be attrition, as usual.
Awesome. Welcome Jeremy. At least we won't have a Will Campbell-esque situation where a kid is committed by himself for eternity. This 2010 class is already looking more than promising.
With 2010 commitments already dropping at a seemingly rapid pace, the VB 2010 recruiting board is going to go live much sooner than expected. It's tentatively scheduled for early next week.
schwing (not that schwing)!
are you saying you have a boner?
.. play my little bros team this year. He seemed pretty solid, good routes and fast. However, he did get a few jump balls knocked out of his hands by shorter corners which was surprising. Glad to see he is coming aboard, he seemed to have a lot of athletic ability. Here is a good pic from the game there are some more in the gallery.
It would be weird indeed if Jackson's boy would have signed elsewhere.
