Fenton (MI) punter Kenny Allen commits to preferred walk-on at Michigan
per Allen Trieu
Please, please, please stay away from the herb
So we can infer Hagerups career is over?
its not another scholarship punter being brought in, just a guy to provide some competition/injury/suspension help. Nice to see since scout is reporting an OSU offer (Oregon State).
He can earn the scholarship if he's good enough, when it's vacated.
No, no, no. Hagerup still has plenty of time to straighten out and have successful career. This seems more of a back-up plan to me considering our current punter hasn't made the greatest of decisions so far.
or Hagerup will be a Junior next year and Wyle (recruited as a kicker) hasn't looked that great as a punter. I"m guesing that the preferred walk on means he won't get the scholarship until Hagerup graduates.
I'd infer that Hagerup, not being Tacopants, has limited eligibility, and that therefore we may need another punter at some point.
OMG HAGERUP GOT KICKED OFF THE TEAM!!!???!!!???!!!???
This my friend is how rumors start...
That won't be an issue with Kenny. Kenny is a great guy and character is not an issue. He has a great work ethic and is always working to improve his game (during the season and offseason). He can kick, punt, and kickoff and has a huge leg in all three of those aspects. He's a great get for this class and fans will definitely be pleased by him down the road.
..knock over the bong!
Also had an offer from Oregon State, was hearing from Miami (YTM), Alabama, and LSU.
This class is great! Even our walk-ons are good.
This kid has a solid offer list. Really good get for Michigan, especially as a walk-on.
Hopefully he will fill in better than Wile during Hagerup's next suspension.
Just kidding. Wile's actually done as much as you can ask him. Considering he probably didn't spend a ton of his offseason practicing punting.
By "offers" at LSU and Bama, you mean preferred walk-on offers, right?
I said he was hearing from them. But had a legit scholarship offer from Oregon State. Could have had preferred walk-on offers from LSU and Bama but those typically aren't reported.
I was speaking to you, mon frère. Thanks for clearing it up.
Oregon State offer and Bama Miami LSU interest.
"Kenny is a great combo prospect (K/P). A good athlete that shows great potential in all areas. Has the skills to be one of the very best. A hard worker, that will only continue to improve. Kenny is big, tall, strong, and athletic. A great combo prospect. Punts for great distance and shows nice consistency. Definite D1A prospect."
edit: what DGDestroys says beaten to punch
Good get... had interest from some big schools.
(Alabama, LSU, Miami (YTM) )
Good for you, Kenny. Carve out a spot for yourself!
Will MSU's in-state recruiting dominance stop?!?!
that meme is so old. Everyone knows MSU recruits nationally now.
He seems like a very good prospect. I'm thrilled that he wants to be Blue badly enough to walk-on. We could certainly use him.
Yep. Worst first post ever.
President Lincoln has been shot!
As a Fenton alumnus, I'm glad to finally see a UM varsity sport offer come through. I think it's been 8 years since the last one (swimming)
wow some of you are weiners
I heard aboutt his kid a few weeks ago from a relative who is the game announcer at another school who played Fenton. This guys son is also in Media Relations at MSU. He said there were scouts from all over at the game and that the is a top notch kicking and punting prospect and a michigan lean. Not adding much just saying that this is a pretty solid get.
Sounds like a quality recruit. I look forward to seeing him play in the Big House.
...but I got to wonder if this spells doom for Hagerup .

Not ranked by either Scout or 247.
ESPN reports that his strength is punting and says he's "very good."
Sounds like a solid pickup, especially for a walk-on.
