So I know this has been covered in an off-topic manner within the context of other posts, but I just wanted to know, given the plethora of cb recruits that have Michigan interest, who do you want to finish out the CB class. I'm assuming we get Cullen Christian, so that leaves:
*I didn't include Safeties, such as Latwan Anderson
I personally would like to see Grimes and Knight finish out the class. Despite Dior's newfound motivation to "Fuck Shit Up," I still think he's a bit overrated as a CB. I know he's fast fast fast, but I honestly think the staff views him as more of a slot than a db. I don't think his cover skills are as polished as either Grimes or Knight and I'm not sure what it is, but something has always irked me a little bit about him.
On the other hand I think Grimes is one of the better corners I've seen film on (albeit highlight films on scout/rivals). He just always seems to make a play, regardless of who he's going up against.
Knight hits people. Hard. Very Hard. His highlights made me cackle with glee for the first time since I saw Jeff Luc's highlights. He lays HITS on people, and that is something this defense has missed for years. Watching the Ohio State game last year it seemed like everytime one of our WR's caught the ball, their DB's smoked them. On the flip side it seemed like our DB's always tripped their WRs up with a weak tackle or worse yet, no tackle at all. I know that a lot of times going for a big hit can result in a missed tackle/big play but I think that Knight's ability to drill someone will bring an aspect to the team that I have sorely missed.
I like Travis Williams as a player I just think he's more option 1b and not option 1. He is a solid player who plays DB un-spectacularly (not that there is anything wrong with that). I think that the other guys have slight edges on him which may be echoed by the coaching staff, given his slow-play commitment (I am assuming here).
So there's my explanations of who and why. Now's your turn. "Fuck Shit Up."
