Has anyone heard any news on his front? I think it is somewhat surprising that Vlad hasn't picked a school yet considering that in his comments when transferring he mentioned that he wanted to find a school by the end of September. You have to wonder whether, had he stayed, Vlad could have been a valuable contributor to this defense at the safety position -- even just from a depth standpoint. Since there has been no news on this front, is there any possibility that he could return to the school? Is he still enrolled at the University? While I highly doubt it, I thought it was worth asking as the lack of news on his front is a bit surprising.
Also, with Vlad, as it happens I was doing some research on my Phd dissertion "Denard-ation: The Story of the 2009 Michigan Recruiting Class" and came across an interview Tom did with Vlad after his visit with UM (but before committing). Ironic on so many levels:
TOM:On your visit, did the coaches talk about early playing time? Is that important to you?
VLAD:It’s very important. I’m always going to have to battle, I love competition. But I like that there’s a better opportunity to play early and battle out freshman rather than juniors or seniors at Michigan. I’m going to be pretty smart about the depth charts and deciding.
