I just confirmed with Vlad Emilien, that he is NOT taking his visit to Ohio State for the Michigan vs Ohio State game. This seems to be a good sign, since he plans on announcing his decision on his birthday, November 23rd, the day after the game. Unless Stanford made a big push, he had said Michigan and Wisconsin were his top 2. So it looks like we're in good shape with him down the stretch.
"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
