This week's scouting report is on Bastrop (TX) Bastrop cornerback Antwuan Davis. Michigan currently sits outside his top five of Arkansas, Baylor, Oklahoma, TCU, and Texas, but the coaches are still pursuing him. I like Davis as a physical boundary corner, and he also has the speed to stick with receivers downfield. Lately it seems most Michigan corners only have one or the other, but Davis looks like a pretty complete player if he can stay healthy.
Scouting Report: Antwuan Davis
He looks good, hopefully we can keep pushing for him, we seem set at CB but it looks like we'll have a couple of spots for the best available.
On a completely and utterly OT note, here's a thought I just had. Know the football intro videos with "most wins in college football," "# all americans," etc, that ends with "this is michigan"? We should also have the line "1 US president."
11 espnu 150 recruits
Magnus, why are you so negative about recruits? "If he can stay healthy...". Now he won't come to Michigan because of you.
Dammit! I'm ruining kids' lives left and right...
Have you heard anything about how the coaching situation at Arkansas may impact recruits?
Saw them on the top 5 and it made me think about that. I have heard little about the impact on recruits but I'd imagine it would impact recruiting a lot (although not sure it would help UM much).
Yeah, Arkansas and Michigan recruiting don't cross paths a whole lot. I haven't heard about how it's affecting recruiting, but Arkansas currently has zero commits and I'm sure the Petrino situation didn't help. I can't imagine that John L. Smith will be a long-term answer for them, so I think it's going to be a rough recruiting year for Arkansas. Kids don't like uncertainty at the coaching position. If they're going to replace John L. Smith, I think they need to do it IMMEDIATELY after the regular season and hope that the replacement can salvage the class over the two or three months before NSD.
Since it is known that John L Smith is a one year stop gap, is it possible they name his replacement during the season? Couldn't Arkansas then use the NCAA's ruling allowing two coaching staffs at Ohio to their advantage? I know an SEC school would never try to get an upper hand in recruiting but it seems logical to me.
I wouldn't be surprised if they name his replacement with one or two games left in the regular season.
Actually less than 1 year. He signed a 10 month contract. It seems like they want to dump lots of money for some guy after this season.
Hahaha I love your insight Magnus brings some of the homers bach into reality...Have you heard about the new wideout we offered? There is a picture on rivals, but I have no idea who he is..thanks
I've been after Magnus to stop including that proviso in every Iowa Running Back evaluation he's ever written.
Couple quick questions:
1. "breaking a bone in his back" can mean a lot of things. Tailbone is no big deal, but a spinal fracture would be a different story (I'm assuming he wouldn't be playing if the latter were the case).
2.How old is the kid? I'm wondering if he's still growing and will outgrow the corner spot.
1. He had to wear a back brace for a while, and I think he fractured a vertebra. I don't think it was a tailbone.
2. I'm not sure how old he is.
I think your comment about "if he stays healthy" is very appropriate.
