Glad to see the coaching staff practice consistency with their recruiting policies. It's anyone's guess whether or not Brown told the staff before taking the visit. Hopefully there's still mutual interest both ways. If not, then I'm sure the staff can find another recruit that's just as talented, if not more, to take Brown's spot.
Edit: according to thewolverine.com's chat this evening, Brown's visit was unexpected by Michigan's staff. It sucks to lose such an amazing athlete but I'm sure the class of 2012 will be a major success with or without him!
