While many of us are still upset about yesterday's loss, I think I know the perfect thing to cheer people up... Recruiting!!!
Let's start off with basketball. I don't know if you guys heard, but a man named Mitch McGary committed to Michigan. He is projected to be the number 3 pick in the 2013 NBA draft, while THJ is projected to go 6th. http://www.nbadraft.net/2013mock_draft Very few programs have had two top 6 picks in the NBA draft, and this would show future recruits that Michigan is the gateway to the NBA.
Now on to the 2012 football recruiting class.
Stefon Diggs-Last week he tweeted with Blake Countess (his good friend) about going to Michigan and seemed genuinely interested. Then a few days later he tweeted "that deserves a GO BLUE" and "hey michigan ...". Upon speculation that he had committed he said "NO COMMITMENT HERE . STILL OPEN BUT APPRECIATE ALL THE NEW LOVE... MICHIGAN ... Go Blue", "make sure every decision you make you can live with and stick with.. if its something you have to think twice about . shouldnt do it ", and "dont think im michigan material just yet , i have alot of potential though .. in the end will make me nothing but a better man". He definitely has a lot of interest in Michigan and now that the coaches are pursuing him again, we have a good shot. Not to mention that Shane Morris is also recruiting him to Michigan.
Yuri Wright- He has constantly said that Michigan is either his leader or in his top group. He is visiting for the OSU game. http://espn.go.com/college-sports/football/recruiting/player/_/id/127762...
Other WRs- Rivals has a free article that covers the other WR targets. http://michigan.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1288594
And the 2013 recruiting class
Shaq Wiggins- He has a Michigan offer. He has maintained that Michigan is his leader and he is visiting for the OSU game. So far he has 9 INTs this year.
LaQuon Treadwell- He has had an amazing year and was named the Chicago player of the week last week. http://espn.go.com/blog/chicago/high-school/post/_/id/2049/crete-monees-... Before this week, he had 61 receptions for 1,230 yards and 17 touchdowns. In their playoff loss yesterday, he had 14 receptions for 161 yards and a touchdown. Right now, it seems as if Michigan is his leader.
Laremy Tunsil- The big offensive tackle received a Michigan offer last week. He is a five star on 247 and an early 4 star on scout. Earlier this year he said Michigan was in his top 3 and he really wanted an offer from them. http://247sports.com/Player/Laremy-Tunsil-7189
