I was wondering if anyone out there went to a high school game involving one of Michigan's recruits?
If so, can you update us on your take of how they looked and stats if available?
I was at the Orchard Lake St. Mary's and West Catholic game this afternoon. James Ross appeared to be nursing a previous hamstring injury. I wasn't aware of any injuries prior to the game, but was a little concerned when I saw him stretching his hammy out for a long period of time in pre game warmups. He then rode the exercise bike quite a bit in between stretching his hammy. My concerns were confirmed when he played sparingly in the beginning of the game. As the game went on he played more snaps, but was constantly stretching his hammy and riding the exercise bike during the game when he wasn't on the field.Hopefully this isn't something that lingers all season.
When he was on the field he looked great, and not being 100% made his performance that much more impressive. The kid has a nose for the ball and sheds blocks very well. He also blew up a few guys trying to block him on the screen pass attempts. He made his presence known most of the game, and had a fair amount of tackles. He really wraps up the ball carrier well, which was nice to see. Once he got to the ball carrier the play ended there.I can see this kid developing into a great linebacker. He is a bit on the small side, but he played much bigger than he is.
Update us if possible on CC and how Shallman and Godin looked.
