liked the name "Golden" as in Golden Tate...
Junior Day Attendees: Feb. 20th
- Percy Johnson LB - Now an Ohio kid, just moved from Michigan. Really likes Michigan, we'll have a good shot here if we offer. We haven't offered yet, and most schools are waiting on his ACT scores. He told me, "I'm a loyalist, and that's the big house, so you know." - Valdez Showers RB/WR - Instate kid, nominated for best name in 2011 class. - Robert Mincey DE - Told me that Michigan is his leader. He doesn't have an offer yet, though.
- Rico Butler RB/WR - Ohio - Jamare Mills TE - WILL NOT BE ATTENDING. He was invited, but he told me he can't make it. He did tell me that Michigan is one of his favorites right now. - The Dr. Philips kids should be there ( Demetrius Hart, Hasean Clinton-Dix, Laquentin Smith) - DeAnthony Arnett ***Said he will try to make it, but probably has basketball obligations***
- Vincent Croce DT - Will be coming up. He's making his arrangements today. Has a good amount of quality offers so far. He's not sure where Michigan stands yet, but there's enough interest to come in on his own dime from Maryland.
- Ryan Griffin DB - Ann Arbor Pioneer. He said he thinks he'll be there, but is checking his schedule to make sure. I thought I talked to a couple other kids, but I can't remember right now. I'm getting ready for a trip, so I'm out of it. Like I said, add if you know of more.
"If Golden Tate married Tate Forcier his name would be Tate Tate."
Silly kid, she doesn't understand that boys can't marry b . . . no wait. How do I explain that to her?
The only name change in that scenario would be to Golden Forcier. Cause Tate (Forcier) is DAH MAN!
...referring to the form Zeus assumed when knocking up comely virgins.
Is Zettel or anyone else planning to attend?
When Tom first posted this I'm pretty sure it said OL Christian Westerman was supposed to come, but I guess he took him off.
Zettel isn't sure if he'll make it, or not.
Does this reflect on Zettel's opinion on Michigan negatively, or simply reflect a busy schedule with pre-set knowledge of Michigan?
Zettel is a heavy UM lean; nothing to worry about.
those are some good players we are in good contention for
He's probably the best player in attendance. Michigan needs LBs badly
Mich needs MLBs badly
Thanks for the informative updates.
How Rivals must hate you.
plays this year will help recruiting more than anything else. I really think all the depth on defense will allow playmakers to start (even if they are really young). A defense that can make some big plays, and give up some big ones is better than one that just gives up plays all day. Getting a bowl this year will show recruits that we are headed back to the top.
He's not a junior, but 2012 OLSM LB James Ross is going to be there too. He's the early front runner for best player in the state in 2012, and it's a big deal that he's going to be on campus. Gotta get in on him early.
in the state title game this year. He is a one heck of a player... He is quick to the ball and hits like a truck. As a sophmore!!!! In two years, he is going to be scary...
Per GBW it looks like OL Aundrey Walker will be in attendance.
I'm not going to poke fun at any kid's name who may be the top pick in the state for 2011. As far as I'm concerned, if he wants to be a Michigan Wolverine he's "thunder showers".
Rivals also reporting (as Sam Webb hinted at on the radio earlier this week) that Doran Grant plans on being there as well.
Lawrence Thomas too.
Meddle... so beautiful.
Rivals has a more exhaustive list posted and not behind a paywall. Here's the link:
the January 17 Junior day that took place the day of the Michigan/UConn Bball game.
My bad; didn't look at the date. + 1 to you for the good eye for detail.
Dang Westerman would of been huge to get up here too
Tom just got the date wrong. He's not coming to the Junior Day, he's coming to the Spring Game.
Very impressive list, what I like more is all the kids that are leaning towards us.
He is a junior at St Francis in Traverse City
