landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
A few minor recruiting notes 12/21
Is Abiragi's name spelled wrong or is he not in Rival's database? But I'm cool with any walk-on candidate.
Very interesting that our first 2014 offer is to a kid from Utah.
It is spelled correctly he just doesn't have a recruiting profile from any of the sites.
Google is your friend. It looks like he hasn't been scouted much by the main sites, but its still early and with this offer that's sure to change.
I just watched his film and he looked like he was defiantly the top defender on De la Salle. He plays physical and he likes to hit.
His 40 is 4.5
GPA is 4.1
ACT is 32
And he had 20 tackles and three Ints in his first three games this year.
How big is he? Do you know if he'll play safety or corner? Is he the next Jordan Kovacs?
5-10 and 183 pounds he reminds me of Kovacs, but faster.
Mike Abiragi is a fantastic kid with good speed, a fantastic attitude, and shows no fear. He played strong safety, running back, and returned punts for DLS. As the RB he was the main guy and if they needed a first down they would go to him. I really hope he goes blue because he would be a great wolverine and I know he wants to go to med school and I last time I checked U of M has a pretty good one.
I don't know if it's interesting, but this kid must really be mature to warrant an free ride offer to Michigan forgodsakes as a 10th grader!! Most 10th graders I know are zit faced 140lbs'ers....
MOAR RECRUITS PLEAZZEEE!
Just the name "Sergio" on the team would make us...
I think it's about time someone (a mod?) makes the 2013 Offer List, posted a few months ago, a sticky under the Useful Stuff tab, no?
Edit: Here's the post: http://mgoblog.com/diaries/presenting-2013-offer-list
It looks like wlubd has been keeping it up to date, which is awesome, but putting it in Useful Stuff would also be awesome (unless I'm an idiot and it's easy to find on the homepage...wouldn't be the first time).
I've suggested before it be put in the useful stuff so that other people can update if necessary. I assume it'll be done around NSD when 2012 recruiting is wrapped up.
Just that every top player in Michigan and Ohio go Blue!
Looking good, but it would be nice to see some more info about NT and DTs. Anything about this floating around?
both dt. Poggi has a big upsize. Poet could surprise people with his offer list if he blows up in camps next year.
thats an offer that is getting out there a little far. A lot can happen between now and 2014.
I don't totally disagree with you, but 7 months ago we had a 2013 commit. So it's getting to be the time to send out 2014 offers pretty soon.
I think it is all about being the first one to show interest, making that first great impression and securing a special place in the heart of a recruit. Your first one is always special.
I love that we are making inroads with sophomores. Let's get those folks interested in Michigan and make the rest hustle to catch up.
I'm on my phone and don't feel like playing around with it to much but brionte dunn is officially and EE according to bill Greene @scout. This saga is officially over. Thank god
Gobluegr -- The blog should put you on the payroll. Secondly, your employer should fire you as you are on scouting service sites too often!
Either way, thank you!
If the first bit is true, it must surely be the first time in history that the first UMich offer has gone to a player from Utah.
