There has been a lot of overwrougt handwringing and angst about the supposed deleterious affect Brandon's coaching review timeline is having on recruiting. Bull hockey. With the commitment of Desmond Morgan and today Blake Countess, I hope this tired overused meme can be put to rest.
On the main page, Brian estimates that we can sign 20 fresh recruits. With the strong possibility of signing Zettel, Lyons, Bryant, and Frost, that leaves 2 or 3 spots open. I would say that's a good thing. Some teams out there have been hamstrung by allowing too many commitments, prematurely filling spots that then aren't available to better prospects. Also, with the class filling up, the coaches can tighten the screws on those who haven't yet committed. (i.e., "we only have a few more spots available, and if you are interested in Michigan, you need to make a decision, sooner, not later.")
One last thing. Clearly recruits have been willing to sign up. This either means that they are committed first and foremost to Michigan, or that they are confident that RR will return as coach next year. Those are both good options. These guys obviously believe that it's great to be a Michigan Wolverine.
