TO THE HOT TAKE CANNON
Recruiting DE's and OL
I know it's early and that the Vest has 23 commits already, but is there any concern out there that we don't have enough 4 star DE's and OL in the funnel for the 09 class?
Per VB: It looks like we have 6 OL offered and 2 DT offered. We actually have 10 DE's offered at this point (9 of them are rated 4 and 5 stars). Just not sure how many of them are actually wanting to come to Michigan. Any thoughts on who we might see commit to the Wolverines in this group?

I'm not concerned about OL, but the DE situation worries me greatly. Mainly because it's not like this is a one-off situation here- our DE depth chart is thin because for several years now we've been unable to sign quality DEs. And this year's class seems to just be continuing that trend, which will soon transform that position into a catastrophe for U-M (unless of course RichRod converts some LBs to the position, which doesn't seem likely). So, yes, I'm concerned, and I'm not waiting until Signing Day to go off the deep end on this- I've got paper bags at the ready for bouts of hyperventilation
