One thing that is never mentioned when some recruits hold out or wait to decide when it comes to Michigan is that I believe some may fear the higher academic challenge that Michigan provides. Some of these athletes may be a little apprehensive for this reason and that's nothing against them but they are not going to say that as a reason.
Michigan Offers Delano Hill
Over the last two cycles, Iowa has landed 2 players that had Michigan offers: Greg Garmon (may AIRBHG grant him peace) and Jaleel Johnson. Michigan has landed 18 commits with Iowa offers.
All things being equal, I like our chances.
And Jaleel Johnson probably doesn't even count, since we already had Pipkins at that point, and if we said no to Schutt, we probably would have said the same to Johnson. Garmon is legit.
That said, neither of those guys were from Michigan, so to your point about all things being equal - they're not, and probably in our favor.
And Garmon? He gooooone
any concensus on which is more realistic or higher potential?
That kid's really fucking good so I'd be really happy with him.
More realistic: Delano Hill
Higher potential: Tim Harris
Cass Tech DB offered by Michigan? In other news, water is wet.
Hopefully this kid switches after seeing how awful Iowa was last year. Plus being on the same team as his brother would be a plus.
Already addressed above, Delano & Kahlid Hill are not brothers. Khalid does have a brother in this class - Khalil, but he does not have an offer.
