Sounds like Lewan and Roh will be leaned on heavily to help Andre feel at home when he visits.
TVH Notes: Yruretagoyena Official, Duggan Unofficial Set
The posts similar to this one will become a regular weekly update, as they've received positive feedback. Monday will most likely be the day that they come out, unless I figure out a better day during the season. Anyway, on with the show:
6'5", 260 lbs.
As everyone knows, Andre is a former teammate of Craig Roh and Taylor Lewan. Andre told me recently that he would like to make it up to Michigan for his official visit for the Michigan State game. This isn't set in stone, and needs to be discussed with his parents and coach since it's during the season. But if all goes as planned, that's the weekend he'll be up.
Andre was recently in California, and got the chance to stop by USC, which is one of his top schools. Nothing will be known as far his decision, or top school, until he takes his visits. I will admit that the distance to Michigan makes me nervous. All the other schools in his list (Oregon—his dad lives close by—and USC) are closer to home or family.
6'1", 310 lbs.
When I spoke with Mickey recently he told me that he has enough interest in Michigan to consider them for an official visit. He didn't want to say that he would 100% use one of his five visits on the Wolverines, but he's giving Michigan serious consideration. Officials can't happen until September, so he'll have plenty of time to figure it out. An interesting note on Mickey: he's not originally from Louisiana, so he doesn't have the deep-rooted interest in LSU that most kids from his area have.
At this point I believe he ends up at a school outside of Louisiana.
6'4", 215 lbs.
Ed has been on Michigan's radar for awhile now, and he thought he had a great showing at this weekend's one-day camp. Not only did he perform well on the field, but he also got a chance to have a good conversation with the coaches afterwards. He's really hoping he gets an offer sometime soon. The coaches will review the tape from the camp and go from there. This could go either way, as far as an offer being extended. Linebacker recruiting is going well for Michigan. It's not completely necessary to get the offer out right away, assuming that Davis would commit to Michigan with the offer in hand.

Speaking of linebackers, here's a new name to add to the list. Temple plays for Warren Central, in Indiana, and was recently nominated to the Army All American game. Warren Central has quite a few D1 recruits, amongst them Kris Harley and Kiaro Holts, and sent Chris Graham to Michigan a few years ago.
Nick is really hoping for a Michigan offer and said they are is definitely high on his list. He's been in contact with Coach Tall. The coaches are currently reviewing his film. Temple believes the Michigan coaches will extend an offer soon. Take a look at his highlight video:
6'6", 315 lbs.
Tony plays for the powerhouse Plant team in Florida and is one of the better offensive line recruits in the country. He still maintains that Michigan is high on his list after backing off an early statement that they were his outright leader, and will be coming up to Ann Arbor sometime this summer. He's not sure of the exact date, but he's shooting for a commitment by the end of the summer so it needs to be soon. Tony has already seen Florida and USF, but is unsure of what other stops he'll make before his decision.
Despite the distance, Michigan has a really good shot here. He's quiet, and doesn't like to tell too much, but he always speaks highly of Michigan. A Florida offer would change that.
- An interview with Pat Flavin after he attended Michigan's one day camp.
- Michigan does not appear in Deanthony Arnett's top seven.
- OH LB Sean Duggan will visit Thursday.
- PA DE Desimon Green, teammate of PA LB Branden Jackson, has picked up an offer.
- A fuller picture of Michigan's one-day camp.
Supposedly Taylor Lewan is a really good friend of Andre's. My guess is that Lewan took him under his wing at Chapparal and they grew close. Hopefully come signing day, a simialr situation occurs
It's my understanding that nobody has been named to the Army All American roster. There are only nominees for the game right now. The actual roster invitations won't be extended until later in the year.
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, please...
When can recruits start taking official visits? I know lots of coaches and programs want to move that date up, and Posada is the perfect example why. He wants to make a decision by the end of summer, but will he even be able to get up to Michigan from Florida? It would really suck to lose an interested recruit just because he could make a long distance visit on his own dime - which is completely understandable.
Get those big heavies in here! Pronto!
It's actually pretty cheap to fly from Tampa to DTW. Not as cheap as 3 years ago (around $120 roundtrip), but still not too bad. I usually can find a flight for around $200.
Assuming a high school kid would visit with at least one guardian and stay at least one night in a hotel and eat food, that pushes the grand total over $500 for one trip. That is a very significant amount of money for a lot of these kids/families. And, that's just one visit!
Players can't take official visits until the beginning of the regular season during their senior year.
It's actually whenever their senior year of high school starts. In theory, if a kid's school starts in the last couple weeks of August, he could take an official visit to see fall camp the week before the season (if the coaches were down - they'd probably want him to wait until the season starts, anyway).
If you close your eyes and listen very carefully, you can hear Pam Ward assassinating that name already...
Pam Ward butchers her own name
All I can hear is my belly.
closing eyes + thinking of Pam Ward = nightmare
Andre Yrur... Yruret... Yrurgonnagoblue, am I right?
Michigan and USC/Oregon in integrity and discipline. There are big deltas here besides miles from home.
Big lineman and one of the best in the state. Also LB Ben Kline has committed to Pitt.
They both need to be recruiting him even harder than the coaches, he would be a perfect fit on this offensive line.
What the hell do they feed these kids in Arizona?
Saguaro cacti. That's how they get so tough.
illegals or people who are suspected of looking like illegals.
neg away, bitches, neg away
Andre Yruretagoyena is white? Wow, I didn't expect that.
I assumed it was Eastern European, but I'm biased.
