stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Really gotta trust the coaches on this one. Hopefully they are pretty damn sure Jarrod Wilson will commit here. To lose out on such a high recruit in Morgan who was silently commited here and not get Wilson would suck.
Isn't part of the thing with Morgan is that his coaches have never had such a high profile kid before come through their program and from the sounds of things it kinda sounds like they are trying to protect their kid.
It seems like their first priority is giving their kid the best chance to play early and I'm fine with that. So no harm no foul, sorry it didn't work out for either of us but best of luck to the kid and hope he ends up having a great career for himself.
He had a space reserved, so his coaches shouldn't care if M was recruiting other DBs.
I don't really understand why they parted ways. Maybe the coaches didn't like him going back on his word by delaying the public announcement or taking back the silent?
If the coaches liked him a player then they take him in jan or whenever if space allows.
Unless the coaches cooled on him as a player, which seems odd since there really isn't any new film on him...
Maybe Hoke just really wants to wrap this class up and start on the 2013 class...

But maybe he will change his mind before Signing Day. Amen.
So what's the profile on Wilson? Couldn't fond his film on YouTube. Can someone fill me in
This might be arrogant, and if it is, it is, but we're Michigan
6'3", close to 200 lbs., and he's a 4-star to Rivals, Scout and 247. He'll be a free safety in college. Really athletic and a ballhawk. Could actually end up being one of the best safeties for us in a long time if he commits.
His head coach is former Wolverine Ricky Powers.
Wayne Morgan who?
kids got great ball skills. looks extremely comfortable catching the ball with his hands and away from his body. id like to see a bit more of him in coverage, but i definitely see a few pick sixes in this kids future
This kid had 10 interceptions and returned 5 of them for touchdowns. This guy isn't one of my top DB targets, he's one of my top targets overall. I've been enamored with this kid once I read what his coach, who played here, had to say with him. He's one of those kids you know would just fit right into Michigan. If we can get him, I will be thrilled.
Really interested to see how our DB situation works out with our depth situation in the next few years.
Avatar is a reference to this. Go Blue!
I dont know if somebody can confirm but I think Wilson just visited...looks like a straight up ball hawk. I think Mattison knows what those look like
If I say a duck can pull a truck, shut up and hook the sucka up!
He was in Ann Arbor earlier this week.
Omnia mutantur nos et mutamur in illis.
Any news on how it went? Earlier he didn't even have UM in his top 5.
Ialways assumed Michigan wanted both.

Just found this on Twitter...
Mattison was the D-line coach the last two years of Powers' career at UM, so there could be a nice connection there...
This is a shame and it's disappointing to lose out on a silent no matter what. Still, best of Luck to Wayne and I hope he was the one who backed off rather than the new staff reneging.
Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being sought. It always defeats order because it is better organized.
Does this mean that Sparty will offer Morgan in the hopes that they land a recruit that "Michigan really wanted"?
"It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach."
Personally, I would prefer they stick with 3 DBs and fill the rest of the spots with O-line, D-line and WR, maybe a RB if we can get Dunn. We seem to be in on a large number of stud lineman this year, many of whom were also looking closely at OSU. If we can pull some of those, I think we will be fine in the secondary after all the recruits we brought in last year.
"Down goes Tressel"-best Memorial Day ever!
Does anyone know why OSU didn't offer him, definitely seems worthy of an offer. Was he just not interested in them... even before the shitstorm?
"And they'll never catch him..."
several times in the state playoffs last year, which were televised on STO. He's a player and I was wondering why we weren't on him more than we were given his talents, his position, and our connection to Powers.
I'm happy to see we've upped the attention.
