if Dunn were to decommit. But this sounds like great news. Michigan could really use a big, physical, talented back like him in this class. But, if we can't sign one, then wait until next class? Are there are any other good options beside Dunn?
TomVH: Bri'onte Dunn Update
My attitude re. Dunn is, if we get him, cool. If not, I won't be too disappointed.
Why? I'm really, really excited about Thomas Rawls. I think he could be a lot better than the 3 star rating he was given by the recruiting services.
Could be a toss-up whether we'll see him this year though..... There are like 6 other tailbacks on the roster... although I think I recall hearing the coaches aren't real enthused about any of the backs we have, and are excited about Rawls' potential.
IMO Rawls is one of the most important players to keep an eye on in camp. If we hear good things about him, could mean he's ready to be a contributor, if not, could mean he's headed for a redshirt.
I'm not an expert at evaluating football talent, but, my reaction to that video above is that he could be a really exciting player.

Really excited for Hopkins/Rawls. But Dunn coming to UM would be great regardless. First of all its another slap to the OSU nuts' collective nuts. Secondly you can never have too many truly talented RB on a roster (see: Alabama). If Dunn/Rawls are both truly stud backs then keeping their legs fresh well into the 4th quarter would be downright unfair to a tired defense.
