In the USA Today paper this a.m., in addition to having Drake Harris pictured on the front, they listed the "American Family Insurance All-USA" football team - and it was loaded with Michigan commits: George Campbell, Mason Cole, Drake Harris, Michael Ferns, and Jabrill Peppers. I'm never quite sure how legit some of these All-American teams are and whether they've been "regionalized" to draw clicks. But a search on Google turned up the same list: http://www.usatodayhss.com/amfam/article/american-family-insurance-2013-preseason-all-usa-football-team. At the bottom of the article, it said: "The team was compiled by USA Today Sports' Jim Halley after consultation with high school coaches and recruiting analysts Tom Lemming of CBS Sports Network and JC Shurburtt of 247Sports.com". So, I guess make your own judgement. But either way, it's nice PR for Michigan football.
Michigan commits on All-USA Team
Pretty freakin awesome
Good press is good press.
At the end of the day we all know it doesn't matter til their feet are on the ground in Michigan Stadium.
Eh Tom Lemming
litered with future M commits Hand and Fournette
Josh Rosen was also mentioned as a 2015 QB either getting interest or an offer from Michigan. Great stuff...
He also said he has ZERO interest in Michigan and there is no way he's leaving the west coast.
Considering that the one area of need, according to many, is WR, let me take a look at who is reeling in those top-notch WRs. Hmm--appears one school has all the WRs. And that would be...
Yeah, I think we can feel good about our recruiting these days. This is why the podcast tries to talk about recruiting but devolves into girlish laughter.
Saw this today at work, had to boast a little to all the Miami fans...
ALL OF THE RECRUITS!
Man I love this picture; it gets me everytime.
I would definitely take it as at least a small compliment to the class that Hoke and the staff have put together when Michigan commits make up nearly a quarter of the list. If nothing else, the attention is not bad at all. I must admit that I hadn't seen the summary of Fournette's stats from last season, but...
"Ran for 2,136 yards and 31 touchdowns on 196 carries and had 313 yards and three touchdowns on 15 receptions."
I believe that comes out to 10.9 YPC for Fournette. Wow.
11.6 yards per touch.
0.967 points per touch...wow is right.
M = 4*o + u
for this all American team.
Well, that's a nice little chart.
Not surprised - the recruiting part of this staff continues to amaze me.
Anybody else read it as "Michigan commits to All-USA team" as in our recruiting is going so well that our entire class made the team.
That chart looks ridiculous!
