Dylan Roney get offered yet?
New offers to 2013 and 2014 recruits
Who in the hell downvoted this thread? The nerve...
Edit: Thanks for the update, Magnus. The QB offer is interesting to say the least, but you should always have 3 QBs on the depth chart. Shit happens.
I think you should always have at least four quarterbacks on the depth chart. One guy who's redshirting/buried on the depth chart, one guy who can play in a pinch, and two guys who are ready to run the offense at full go.
they would have signed a QB for 2012, I think it is going to be hard to convince a kid that he has a legitimate chance of playing when you have Gardner, Bellomy, and Morris in front of him, especially when Shane is a 2013 commit. Although, who the hell am I to question this staff...they know what they are doing.
I mean if he's a 2* QB, no big deal, but if he's another 5* that could ruffle some feathers. I'm all about competition though.
I just googled the kid. He's a dual-threat QB. Maybe Borges is looking to make the 2 QB set a permanent fixture? Haha.
I will be interested to see if we offer Drake Harris, class of 2014 WR, a football scholarship. I know we're already looking at him for basketball.
when you say its interesting about recruiting another QB, can you elaborate what your thoughts are on it? as in why they did? i would imagine if they offer 1, theyll offer more too. do u think its only depth related? so they can RS and have 4 scholarship qb's on the roster at all times?
EDIT; after lookign over board, they have 4 QBs offered, including Morris. i sitll find it interesting though
Probably because they didn't get a QB in last years class. If Gardner doesn't get a RS, thent he only QBs on scholarship in 2014 would be Sophomore Morris, RS Jr Bellomy, and a true freshman from the 2014 class. And if Morris passes Bellomy and gets the starter spot in 2014 who's to say that Bellomy wouldn't transfer to get playing time, eaving only 2 QBs. You take a QB every year so you don't end up in that type of situation.
Well, they offered Morris and got him. This is the first QB they've pursued in the class since Morris committed. Personally, I thought Michigan should have taken a QB in the 2012 class, and they should take two in 2013 since they didn't. Quarterback is the most important position on the field and it's odd that the coaches are satisfied going three-deep at QB but are about four-deep at each of the linebacker spots.
Morris tweeted at one point that the coaches told him they wouldn't pursue any other quarterbacks. He has since stated that he would be open to competition if the coaches brought in someone else.
If we were to take a 2nd QB who would you want? Do you think we offer Brogan Roback?
I would want a guy like, say, Chavas Rawlins, who might be able to play WR or DB if the quarterback thing doesn't work out.
About only one QB in a class with the Drew Henson experience. Brady was there for that, right? Guy leaves early or gets hurt and you have no choice but to start a kid that should be learning, not starting. For those of you with longer memories, I give you B.J. Dickey as an example from the Bo days. Of course, Bo knew Rick Leach was graduating.....
Cockerille is teammates with Henry Poggi, FWIW.
Yes, and Anzalone is from Chad Henne's hometown.
Speaking of Anzalone, which linebacker spot do you anticipate us recruiting him at?
Said 2014 LB and teammate of Treadwell at Crete-Monee, Nyles Morgan was visiting this past weekend as well. Do we know if he received an offer?
I haven't heard any new news about Morgan. I'm assuming he's still offer-less.
Does Malik McDowell have an offer yet? What do you know about the kid? I've heard he's a blue-chipper, but does he have any ties to Michigan other than being from Detroit?
No, he doesn't have an offer. He was supposed to visit Ann Arbor last week but got sick. My guess is that he will be offered whenever he visits the coaching staff. I don't know a ton about the kid, but Michigan hasn't recruited Loyola High School very much.
He's listed as wanting to go into Nursing. Unless BOTH the Nursing School and the Football Team are flexible (in how clinicals are done, and being able to miss some practices,) there is no way McDowell can manage to do both.
The QB offer is the most interesting one. Given that we didn't get a QB in the last cycle, it's not suprising that we would offer another one. Cockerille is definitely the lowest rated of the ones that we've already offered. Other than the fact that he's Poggi's teammate, do we know anything else about him? It just seems a little random.
When do we offer Cass Tech 2015 qb Jayru Cambell?
2014 Chance Stewart.
I think we have time before we have to get offers out to the high school freshman.
Freshman might be pushing it but sophomore is where we should start with QBs.
So far these coaches haven't looked too far ahead. They had only offered two 2014 kids until a week or two ago.
is he from? I'm not a huge recruting guy
EDIT: forgot to hit reply to another post.
It takes a funny post or pic to make me really lol - this one happened to do it. Probably because I was just about to write a post about how "we can only offer QB's named Shane from now on". Ha, well done sir.
Magnus you are always one of my favorite people on here to follow. Just curious did you see this past weekend coming? And of the 8 new 4 star commits did you not see any of them coming or did all 8 in your mind eventually get here anyway?
I definitely did not expect as many kids to commit this weekend. I thought Jourdan Lewis and Taco Charlton were strong possibilities. I thought David Dawson might commit if he got offered. That was about it for my expectations.
With Chris Fox coming into town AGAIN all the way from Colorado, I thought there was a very strong chance that he would end up at Michigan eventually. Shallman was kind of a given. Tuley-Tillman has visited Michigan six or seven times, so I thought he would end up at Michigan, too. Jake Butt was a surprise because of the timing, but he had said that Michigan was his leader by far...usually when kids say that, it's just a matter of when.
The kid that really surprised me was Bosch. I knew he liked Michigan, but this was much earlier than I expected him to commit to anyone.
So seven of the eight seemed Blue all the way, or at least leaning toward Michigan...and I probably would have put Bosch at 33% to pick Michigan eventually.
be surprises in the next 10-12 commits but if you could give me 5 or 6 recruits out there that you think are our best shot in the next 11 months? I know nothing is for sure but once again just curious on your thoughts.
I would be looking at Jaron Dukes, Kevin Gladney, Henry Poggi, Gareon Conley, Ben Gedeon, and Ty Isaac. Like you said, there are no sure things. But those are some guys that wouldn't surprise me if they committed.
whos the number one get you think we need to get a big time player at WR or DT in this years class?
Wide receiver. Running back would be second choice.
but I am not so concerned with RB I think with Fitz still having 2 years, Hopkins still has 3 plus I think Drake is gonna surprise everyone who doubted him and be an every down back at some point in his career. I truly believe Hoke sees something in these lower tier recruits and untill he proves he cant spot talent I am all for bringing guys like Drake, Dennis, and Clarke into the fold.
When you're talking about the 2013 class, Toussaint and Hopkins only have one more season (2013). Anybody Michigan gets in the next class will only have to sit behind those guys for one year (assuming Toussaint doesn't leave early and Hopkins doesn't get injured and take a redshirt). Michigan's running backs in 2014 are Rawls, Hayes, Johnson, Shallman, and Norfleet. I don't see a big-time back in that group, although a couple could be serviceable starters.
I am thinking these kids are already here not counting the year Fitz and Hopkins lose this year. Now what about Dymonte Thomas as a running back he lives 10 minutes from where I live and went to high school. He is one of the best RB in Ohio the last 2 seasons is there any shot he gets a chance to play running back at Michigan? He is also one of the top wrestlers in the state of Ohio this kid is just special, balance, speed, strength, power I would think he could play Big Ten football at running back without a hitch.
I would definitely take Thomas as a RB, but he was recruited as a safety and he wants to play defense.
Rawls and Thomas are both brusing style backs that can carry the ball alot, right? They seem, at least to me, to the be the likely successors to Fitz (at least at this point).
Rawls is a big, thick back. Thomas, though? Do you mean Dymonte Thomas? He's not particularly big...and he's going to play safety. Did you mean Drake Johnson?
Do you see Gedeon as a SAM? I've read that he's more of an inside backer, but I look at him as more of a SAM, to me at least.
I think he's a MIKE linebacker. He could play SAM, too, but I don't think he would really fit at WILL.
Anzalone is a beast. Anyone know if he has any interest?
Hey Magnus, on the front of michigans rivals site it shows that Derrick Green a top running back prospect is going to visit this weekend. Have you heard anymore on that? or about his feelings toward UM. I think he would be a great get. I like ty isaac, but not Im not the biggest fan of how he runs. I would rather have D.Green or D. Smith because they run with their shoulders lower. But what do I know lol
I haven't heard much chatter about Derrick Green to Michigan. Off the top of my head, I don't really think Michigan has had much success in Virginia in recent years. Yeah, there's the occasional pull (Minor, Marell Evans, etc.), but the guys in VA can go lots of places nearby - VT, UVA, UNC, Maryland, WVU, PSU, etc. Green grew up as an OSU fan, too, and former Heritage LB Curtis Grant is in Columbus now. I'm not getting my hopes up for Green.
from this weekend it was one of the Ohio kids Taco, or Jake Butt was carrying on a twitter conversation with Trottwood Madison MLB Mike M. who was hinting that Michigan may be his college destination. I know it wasnt confirmed like oh yeah but considering his father played for Ohio that he is even considering coming to Ann Arbor is just a testiment to Hokes powers. I would love for this kid to end up at Michigan,also he is a complete stud seen him in person a few times at Trottwood.
I'd be shocked if McCray didn't go to OSU, but he would be a huge get, no doubt.
but I read a story on his trip to Michigan last year where he came home wearing a Michigan hat and his dad was not pissed or make him take it off. His father said his son can go wherever he wants as long as his choice is a sound one. So as far fetched as it may be or seem we are not out of it by any means.
is Henry Poggi a 3 tech or 5 tech defensive lineman/ defensive tackle? I am hoping he is a 5 tech to go with Pipkens cant ever have enough big bodies on the line in the Big Ten.
He's a defensive tackle more than an end.
well you now are my go to guy for anything related to recruiting. Heres to another great year to be a wolverine fan go blue.
I don't know if I can handle that pressure...
right your actually a high school football coach or use to be right? If so you can handle some crazy rabid wolverine fan lol
Yes, I am a high school coach (currently).
are you aloud to say on here what state or school you actually coach? And what posistion or are you a head coach? If not I completely understand just didnt know if this is smoething you have told people already or just to personal to give all that stuff out.
No offense, but that's about all I'm willing to share.
at all I dont think I could say either but I just didnt know if it was common knowledge that the only reason I asked. Sorry for even putting you in that kind of situation. Just keep up the great threads on posting thats good enough for me.
No apology necessary. I'm glad that some people value my input.
Notice how he said no "offense," that's his way of saying he's a defensive coach, probably a DC. You need to learn how to pick up on these clues.
I need to get better at being cryptic. Where's MGoObes when you need lessons on this stuff?
but i noticed you didnt have Treadwell on your most likely to commit group. Obviously i know it was opinion based, but just curious as to why you left him off. Again i only ask because he is one of the recruits im most excited about.
Whenever a kid says "I'm going to wait until Signing Day" and his current favorite is Michigan, then that concerns me. There's 11 months for coaches to negative recruit against Michigan and convince him Ann Arbor is the wrong place for him. It's the same reason I'm not buying into the Dorian O'Daniel-to-Michigan hype, either.
^Cockrille's highlight reel. Upshot: Tebow-type. Definitely a project re: mechanics at QB. He looks like insurance at QB, plus possible SS/LB depth.
According to a new article posted today, Michigan is recruiting Cockerille as a safety. He plays QB in high school and some schools want him there, but not Michigan.
