I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.

According to Mike Ferell, Michigan has contacted Rutgers 4-star OT commit Chris Muller.
Commence over-reaction about what this means with Diamond/Garnett/Kozan...
I had something clever to add, but then I saw your handle...I can't wait to see your avatar.
Couldn't the coaches just be playing the odds? I mean, very few of the recruiting literati think we're going to get all five of the prospects remaining on the board, which would be like hitting a royal flush. If there's another four-star prospect on the table, why not be in contact just to increase your options and, in so doing, your cumulative probability of success?
I guess now we can safely deduce that the visit with Garnett didn't go that well... (or at least Josh gave our coaches a heads up)
Commence over-reaction about what this means with Diamond/Garnett/Kozan...
I agree. UM was Not even on his radar. However, this recruiting season is becoming notorious for flip-flopping. You never know, but don't bet on it.
Another lineman? Do the coaches know something we don't?
Even with Stacey committed we were pursuing Kozan, Diamond and Garnett.
Right, but does the fact that the coaches offered someone else mean that they don't feel very good about our chances with at least one of these guys?
Your guess is as good as mine but we've offered him and he was rumored to be visiting before (however, that was more regarding his relationship with Kalis than anything concrete).
I thought we also had feelers out to JJ Denman. The recent commit from Wisc.
You can always redshirt the least ready ones, or are we past that saturation point? I haven't looked at the depth chart in a while.
We have like two legit OT's. We need MOAR OT's!

The coaches always liked Muller, he was supposed to visit a while back and decided to stick firm with Rutgers. With Schiano leaving, they probably just sent out a feeler to see if he still felt that way and probably has absolutely nothing to do with the current targets.
I don't think Schiano leaving will have much of an impact on Rutgers. I mean, at Rutgers you don't rebuild, you reload.

They know we have 5 available spots and its highly unlikely we'll get all the highly rated guys we are after at this point.
Probably know more than us.
We've been having "issues" with people getting frustrated with so many recruiting updates. If you throw the recruit's name in the title, it will make this thread more search-able for future posters. If you don't mind, thanks in advance.
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
All this says to me is that this is back-up plan in case we do not get Garnett or Diamond.

Having 45 OL would be too much. But I get the gist of your point, especially considering we will have two legitimate/true/actual OT's on the team next season.

Muller said he had 28 missed calls and 18 voicemails today, per Mike Farrell's twitter.

I spoke with Rutgers commit OL Chris Muller this morning. He has been contacted by Michigan and said he is interested in Michigan and would consider visiting. I should have more with him later.

Please don't post premium site material on the board.
No information was even posted. Just confirmed what was in OP.
Actually, it reveals there is mutual interest from Muller per a conversation with TomVH.
It is ironic that we lost a recruit to "powerhouse" Rutgers... and their coach Schiano actually spurned us.... you know, the great powerhouse Rutgers...
WTF How did we ever get to this point?
That's all I was trying to do
[Caved troll is caved. Sorry, Mobile app users.]
How many OL is too many?
1. What's the ideal number of scholarship OL on a roster?
2. What's the ideal number of scholarship OL to take this year given the lack of depth?
They've been recruiting three guys (that we know of), but have presumably been expecting not to land them all, and maybe suspected that Stacey was wavering. If they could just point - would they take three guys? Four?
1. a million
2. 2 million
ALL ABOARD THE A-TRAIN!!!!!

"Wait...I think I'm doing this wrong"
is it that we steal this guy from rutgers? has he expressed interest in the past?
Those who stay, will be champions.
He became good friends with Kalis during the Army Bowl. He was the rumored "secret visitor" that was discussed around that time. After getting back home though he decided to pass on a visit.
The interest is serious, and according to the Rivals mods, Kalis is already working on him to come join him.
Schiano just became the tampa Bay Bucs new head coach. Rutgers had a strong recruiting class picking up kids in the fallout from the PSU scandal. Looks like a lot of them are back on the market now that Schiano is gone.
Interestingly, we pursued him prior to hiring RichRod.
We pursued Schiano prior to hiring Rich Rod?!? Thanks for sharing, I feel smarter now that I just now found out we, "interestingly," pursued Schiano. No way man!

We need a Center BAD
Kalis is the main guy recruiting him. This was reported by Helmholdt.
My thoughts on this:
- Kalis sees Mags has his buddy Garnett in the mix (maybe not for sure committing, but at least a 50% chance).
- Kalis wants his own 4-star, top 150 guy to be his buddy.
- Mags and Garnett struck up a relationship at a camp.
- Kalis and Muller struck up a relationship at the AA game.

The OP needs to chill. If you want 2-3 o-linemen, you don't just sit hoping the 2-3 you've offered will all fall into your lap. You keep competing until the whistle. Plus, going after other top-level recruits puts a little fear of god into the ditherers.

Your point is valid and correct, however I think you're more referring to the people at the top of the thread and not the OP.
The scarlet knight recruiting class isn't...I guess I should say wasn't...bad at all.
Does Muller have the potential to develop into a center or is he purely a tackle prospect?
Also, at risk of getting bombarded with a bunch of sarcastic "yes, we're just not telling you" responses...is there anything out there indicating a pursuit of the 4* wideout?
313 yards and a cloud of dust
If the recruiting services are correct, Muller is 6'6" and almost 290 lbs., so he's probably too big to be a center.
