For those of you who don't like recruiting speculation at 2:00 a.m. ignore this post. I was just catching up on about a weeks worth of Sam Webb's Recruiting Roundup on WTKA. Several times during the week he mentioned a surprise 5 Star visitor coming for the Iowa game. I realize that it was mentioned on the board last week (probably when Sam originally said it), but I think the guesses at the time were wrong.
Scout has 49 players listed as 5 Stars. I have highlighted players that have been mentioned as Michigan prospects at some point in the process.
As you can see, players highlighted in green have already indicated they plan to visit, so, I believe, they should be removed from our "surprise visitor" prospects. Sam said Michigan's start has reignited this player's interest so I assume that means he would be among the players in red. These players were recruited by Michigan but they commited somewhere else or they mentioned we weren't in their favorites.
Reviewing the names two seem like possibilities. Deanthony Thomas, who TomVH indicated in July would keep an eye on us, and Trey DePriest, who grew up a Michigan fan but was scared off by our struggles.
Does anyone want to speculate?
