Hey fellas..a lil disappointed/surprised with Steve Elmer's commitment. But don't fret, we have plenty of other options for the 2013 class. And we currently have the best o-line class in the country with the possibility to add either Banner, Diamond, or Garnett. The depth in 2012 class might scare some prospects away, maybe a factor with Elmer. I think we need to address the center position in 2013, especially because Christian Pace is no longer with the program. Two other options at OT for 2013 are Bosch and Pocic both hailing from Illinois, which I mentioned in a previous update.
PA RB Greg Garmon- We're in his top four right now. This consists of OSU, TAMU, Iowa, and UM. TAMU already has Trey Williams (beast) in their class and are pursuing a community college prospect. OSU is stacked at RB, including two blue chippers in this class. I think it is a battle between us and Iowa. We need to get him back on campus, anyone aware of his visit plans?
IA WR Amara Darboh- A lot of us panicked when he didn't visit for the ND game, but he will take an official here. Either on Nov. 19 or 26, per our boy TOMVH.
NJ CB Yuri Wright- Here is a Detriot News article (good read) by Sam Webb. He speaks pretty highly of michigan. He is not orginally from New Jersey and says he reps New York. Him playing with his teammates at RU will not be a deciding factor. Playing early will be a factor for him and I think he will have a good chance of that at michigan. He is also pretty high on MSU and may visit east lansing oct. 15 for the um vs msu game. His suitors at this point : us, UGA, Cal, RU, MSU. I think RU leads just because he has been on campus so many times...hasn't finalized any officials but he may be in town for either SDSU or Minny.
EDIT: according to fellow Mgobloger BGG34, michigan has the edge right now. Man if we land him....
2012 DT commit Ondre Pipkins has been dominate so far, recording 15 tackles, 4tfl, 1 sack this week. His stock is on the rise, no doubt a top 10 tackle.
Pretty much what has gone down the last week...let us know what else you are hearing? Any predictions on how this class pans out?
