Looks like UM or WV
Troy Gloster possibly decides this week
Would rather have a CB but I will take it. We need depth at pretty much all defensive positions. Woohoo!!!
If he does commit, what happens with our recruitment of Josh Furman?
Furman will play either WILL, SAM or safety so it shouldn't effect his recruitment at all.
he's played mostly outside in high school. mike is what the recruiting sites have given him for classification. not sure where he ends up, but i wouldnt dismiss it impacting recruiting at the other LB positions. if michigan was really high on this guy, i would have to think they would've pushed for a visit by now.
I would rather see Furman and Olaniyan. They seem to be much higher rated than Gloster. However. I wouldn't want to see a possible replacement for Ezeh turned down. The other two are (hopefully) significant upgrades over what's already there. Except maybe Brown.
Gloster would make a great addition to the team. Here's to hoping that he makes the right decision.
We'll probably be able to sign a full class of 25 this year. I think the coaches are planning on taking at least that many, from what I've gathered.
We currently have 19 commits. I think we have room for a guy like Gloster if he's the only MIKE-type player on our radar.
I've also said from the beginning that I don't think all five WRs will stay committed to Michigan throughout the entire process, so maybe another scholarship or two will open up.
which WR do you think has the best chance of ending up somewhere else, Magnus?
I don't have any inside info on anyone looking elsewhere. I just have a hard time believing that our first four or five commitments would all come from wide receivers and all of them would remain committed for the entire process.
If I had to take a shot in the dark, I'd say DJ Williamson. I just don't think that kid is a Michigan-caliber player, unfortunately. I think the coaches might start forgetting to call him...
Do you think Jerald Robinson will play WR? At what position do you see him having the most upside?
Could Williamson be put on a track scholarship in order to add another player?
I don't believe so. I am almost positive that a player on athletic scholarship that plays two sports counts towards the higher revenue sport. It's in place to avoid the abuse that would inevitably happen.
If the coaches were to do that, any idea how that would affect relations with the high school coach?
It seems like a coach might be put off by that, and future players may be steered away from us. Your thoughts?
