I want Shaq on our team so badly.
Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
This is an early list of who is going to be at the Spring Game this year. This list will continue to grow, since these are only the players I've talked to so far. Some of the visits could change as we get closer, so just remember that.
I'll keep adding to the list as I talk to more people, but here's what I have so far.
WR DeAnthony Arnett
OH LB Percy Johnson
OH DE Bryan Baird - Said he will probably be there, not positive.
OH DB Greg Brown (commit)
MI DE Brennen Beyer
MI CB Delonte Hollowell (commit)
MI OL Anthony Zettel
FL RB Demetrius Hart (Mom coming too.)
FL S Dallas Crawford - Yes. This is a big one for Michigan.
FL WR Sammy Watkins - Yes. Also big.
MD DT Vincent Croce - Yes, as of now.
TX RB Jarrell Oliver (same school as Stonum, Herron, Woolfolk)
NJ LB Antoine Pozniak - He's coming with the "Top Prospects Family." Je'Ron Stokes dad is the founder of Top Prospects Family.
NJ ATH Miles Shuler
PA DE Deion Barnes - 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds. Same school as current wolverine Je'Ron Stokes, and his brother Malik Stokes.
NJ LB Andre Hodge - Top Prospects
Other Top Prospects Family - Ronald Butler, Tyron Stevens, Lamar McKnight
IN OL Tony Springmann
GA WR Justin Scott
FL DE Anthony Rabasa
PA DB Kyshoen Jarrett - No, as of now. Family might decide to come, but no for now.
OH S Ron Tanner - He has baseball.
OH DE Robert Mincey - No, he'll be at Toledo. No offer, not sure if he'll get one.
OH DT Kevin Williams - He'll be at Nebraska, for their spring game. He was recently at Michigan for one of the practices. It seems like it's down to Nebraska and Michigan. He'll make his choice shortly after the 17th
NC LB Kris Frost - No. His family waited too long to buy tickets, so they were too expensive when they went to buy them. He's NOT going to Auburn's spring game over Michigan's, he's going to Auburn's because it's only 6 hours away. He figures he might as well go somewhere, if he can't make it to Michigan. They are trying to find another time to make it up.
AR QB Kiehl Frazier (2011) - No for the spring game. I spoke with his father, though, and they're really excited about Michigan. He said they DEFINITELY plan on making a trip to Ann Arbor. They really like Coach Smith, and are excited to see Michigan.
NJ WR Damiere Byrd - Track Meets
MI RB Justice Hayes is going to try to make it. Not positive yet.
OH TE Ray Hamilton - There's a "strong possibility" that he'll be there. Not definite.
OH OL Aundrey Walker - Doesn't know for sure yet. It's still a possibility.
OH WR Shaq Washington - Going to try to make it. He doesn't have an offer, but Michigan is one of the few schools he's hoping to get an offer from. He thinks he fits the offense really well.
OL Matt Frazier - Didn't end up making it to practice the other week. He fell ill, and couldn't make it. He's either coming for the spring game, or one of the early games of the season. Most likely a game, though.

Any news on DeAnthony??? We don't have a huge need for WR's, especially with the Conway committ, but he is a true Blue Chip.
Plus, I want to keep him away from South Bend, East Lansing and LA..........and he's a Saginaw Boy.
Any news on DeAnthony's attendance or new interest?
He visited OSU on Sundayish, MSU Tuesday and ND Wednesday
Jessica Alba gives birth to my child > Arnett commits to UofM.
Arnett will be at the spring game. Remember Woodley has been at a lot of Arnett's Bball games and I'm sure he's talked with him. On the other hand, MSU has Charles Rogers to talk to him unless he's still in jail.
What exactly do you mean when saying, "Dallas Crawford is a big one"?
Is it because you expect him to be a huge recruit once the process is finished? Or because the coaches believe it would be a real coup to get a foot in the door at his High School and pull him away from other Florida programs?
The only reason I ask is because his current offer list doesn't necessarily scream "5-Star Prospect".
Dallas Crawford and Sammy Watkins are teammates, and I think by the end of this, they'll both be highly regarded.
I think Watkins favors Miami right now, but to get them on campus is a pretty big deal. So, to answer your question, I think it's a little of both.
I think their offer lists are going to start growing after the 15th.
Hopefully the weather is warm enough next Saturday where it doesn't become a deterrent to the Florida guys.
Tom, any thoughts on potential commits out of that group?
Also, any insight as to who will be there for this weeks scrimmage? Sounds like that may be a closed door recruiting weekend.
I know Doran Grant is supposed to be there this weekend. I haven't really heard anyone else, but I haven't really asked, to be honest.
I don't think we're going to see any commits at the spring game. It sounds like most of the recruits are taking their time.
on Trey DePriest? Sam Webb said something about April 17th being the only Saturday for a while that he didn't have a baseball game and how the coaches really want to have him come.
GBW has Depriest as a maybe for the Spring Game FWIW. So maybe he actually makes it here.
Not sure if you still check this thread anymore, but are you aware of anyone who signed an LOI for the 2010 class that will be in town for the Spring Game?
