Sam Webb and Allen Trieu spent the week traveling around Ohio with a dip into Kentucky to see Zeke Pike. It sounds like he's hinting we are in a very good position with Zeke.
Highlights from the Recruiting Round Up:
Zeke Pike is very personable. In that respect he's a lot like Ryan Mallett. People might take that to be a negative in some respects but don't; the kid's very personable, a very gregarious young man and he has that charisma you want to see a quarterback have. And you'll find out some things that Michigan really has going for it in the interviews we will have posted on GoBlueWolverine later today. Very clear Michigan is in a good position with him and very, very clear there may be some positive things on the horizon with him.
I'm not a subscriber, but Scout has this in it's title and tease for the interview:
In part one of GoBlueWolverine's sit-down with the talented signal caller he discusses his game, his relationship with the Michigan coaching staff, the top schools on his list, where Michigan fits into that group, and more.
Sam continues to talk about several of the other players in Ohio and then he ends his Round Up with this message when asked if we are close with any of the players he visited:
Michigan is very close with a couple of young men that we stopped through to see on this visit. A couple of young men that we will have video interviews with up today. That's not a promise that they will commit, but pay close attention to the guys that we put up.
The three interviews they posted that day from their trip were with LB Joe Bolden, QB Zeke Pike, and S Allen Gant.
