I know we're right in the middle of things for 2014, but this time last year we already had a good idea of who Hand was from the camp seen. With 2015 offers (and even a 2016 offer!) going out I just wondered if there was an early favorite for the top player of 2015? A quick google search didn't tell me much....
Any early favorite for top player of 2015?
Golden Arm. He's an early lean to Blue Mountain State
has he recovered from that injury on his visit?
Damien Harris, RB out of KY, has been very interested in Michigan, supposed to be a top 5 overall player talent, and we're the presumed favorites at this point.
He's out of KY? That's gotta be rough.
with so many dry cOunties down there.
Possibly someone from this list.
The name to watch for is Kevin Dillman from La MIrada, CA. He will most likely be our top target at QB. Ferrigno has been out to see him 3 times already this year. In the summer, Borges is supposed to go out to watch him throw at one of their summer practices.
That kid's name isn't "Lion."
The names I hear are mostly Michigan-centric, but I do think Kevin Dillman and Jacques Patrick will both be very highly ranked. Defensive ends have been high up there recently (Hand, Clowney, etc.), but I don't know of any super-elite DEs for 2015 right now.
Who do you think will be the top instate guy for 2015?
I am not Magnus and have no scouting experiance, so I'll field this one:
It is certainly not determinative, but the only Michigan player listed on that MaxPreps top 100 thing is Anthony Herbert (whom I have never heard about).
I would think Mike Weber and Campbell might fight it out for #1 or at least will both be in the top 5. Campbell has a slighty better offer sheet at the moment (Bama, ND and MSU), but I think Webber will have the better offers and be higher ranked when its all said and done (offers right now include UM, OSU, MSU).
I think Brian Cole is another player who will be in the top 5 of the state. I think he is very slightly behing Weber and Campbell. He has 3 good offers as well (UM, OSU and MSU) but has yet to be viewed as much as a National product like Weber and Campbell.
Alabi is another player who will be highly ranked but I think he will be behind the others listed.
I'm curious about his actual size, but I'll say Kyonta Stallworth. He's listed at 6'4" and 270 lbs., but I wonder if he's that big and/or if he'll hit a little bit of a growth spurt. Otherwise, I think Mikey Weber is #2 and Brian Cole is #3.
Does anyone else really want Jamez Brickhouse just based off the name alone or is it just me? Anyone? Anyone?
Campbell from Florida
However UM gets
It seems like George Campbell is going to be a top level guy. Think he will probably be somewhere in the top 5 or 10 WRs. Don't think he will be a top-5 overall guy, but could be a top-25 type player.
Also, based on offer sheet alone (and the very little talk I've heard about 2015) it seems like Jacques Patrick (who I think is a RB) is going to be a top guy, maybe top overall. He has offers from basically everybody and has for a long time.
I watched the highlight reels of Damien Harris, Jacques Patrick, and Soso Jamabo the other day and to my untrained eye Harris definitely looked like the best. He was the fastest and had the most shake and doesn't give up much in terms of power to the other guys. The other two seemed more like bulldozer types, which we not only already have on the roster, but also seem to gain that top RB spot a lot less.
He switched sports.
Any dude still sporting a fadora and a mustache. Game's gotta be tight for that.
Player pro. ADED.
How about Tyrone Wheatley Jr.?
Damien Harris and George Campbell
in state the Cass Tech boys Campbell,Weber,and Alabi
A few of my coaching friends keep saying keep an eye out for OG Kyonta Stallworth (south lake hs) OT Anthony Herbert (lapeer east hs) WR Brian Cole (Heritage HS)
I read the title wrong, I thought you were asking for our favorite recruits anyways quick Google search found this top 100 by Max preps, a few Michigan targets are on the list
I'm curious about our QB situation. Jayru is a top talent at a pipeline school. I understand he might not be a 100% fit, but he's a huge talent with no offer. I'd love to get one of our resident experts' take on why.
We haven't offered any 2015 QBs, and it took us until the beginning of this year to offer a 2014 guy (and we only offered one).
That's not to say he gets an offer, but the coaches definitely haven't decided who they want yet and probably won't for a while.
There's no lengthy film on him AFAIK, so I can only say what I've read. He has some filling out to do, his arm could afford to develop a little, and his mechanics are poor. He is supposedly getting a QB coach this spring/summer to help with that last portion. Frankly, I'm a little surprised that Notre Dame and Alabama have already offered.
Doesn't bama do the whole our offer is conditional that you come workout for us?
I guess I've only seen a tiny bit of tape..and it may have been from his freshman year, but I don't recall being particularly blown away by him. He's he supposed to be a top-whatever list guy?
He bleeds blue
I hope its Demar Dorsey.
/NO FLY ZONE
LB Ricky DeBerry out of Virginia has 20+ offers. It's unlikey a LB would be ranked #1 but he seems like an early candidate to be a 5-star.
I watched DeBerry's sophomore highlights, and I wasn't extremely impressed. I mean, he definitely looks like a 4-star prospect, but he was hyped up as a potential #1 and I don't see that potential there.
Seen or scene?
http://bleedbluerecruiting.com/2013/04/22/2015-getting-to-know-damien-harris/ Damien Harris may very well be one of the top RB recruits for 2015 and a 5* player.. Michigan leads early for him and he seems to favor Michigan quite a bit.. for our website, bleedbluerecruiting.com we spoke with him last month.. a real good kid with sick skills on the field.
