People can be changed, but my opinion is that it takes a long time. I don't think guys change a whole lot from the time they're 18 to when they're 21. And I don't think Michigan football should be a halfway house. I think if you look at the guys who got in trouble at Michigan, they have generally been consistent troublemakers and have rarely been able to play their way back to the top.
Clark had lots of red flags as a high schooler, and yes, Michigan took a chance on undersized, under-the-radar defensive end. And they turned him into a pretty good football player. But he was never really a consistent performer, he got in trouble multiple times, and now he's kind of an embarrassment to the university/program.

Notre Dame essentially has their own TV network, and people grew up being able to watch every single one of their games on TV. Furthermore, they're a Catholic college where a lot of private school kids get pushed to play because it's their dream school, their parents' dream school, etc. They are the only school like that. They also don't have to deal with another in-state power (Indiana and Purdue are second-tier programs, whereas Michigan State is currently and occasionally a well respected program).

I guess I wasn't clear.
You're right that the economy has to do with population. What I mean is that so far, I don't think the uptick in the economy has really affected Michigan's population. So unless there's long-term economic growth, the population won't grow much. And if the population doesn't grow, then I don't see the talent base improving.
Hopefully that's a little bit clearer.

You say this like it's surprising. I don't think this is a particularly down year for Michigan. Some are saying it's a deep class. And while it's true that there is no bona fide 5-star, Shane Morris (who was a 5-star at one point) and Will Campbell are two highly touted guys who haven't really panned out, at least not yet. You seem you're wringing your hands, and I'm not sure why.
|1 week 3 days ago||True, although those take||
True, although those take place too late in the process for any true value for recruiting or recruiting coverage.
|1 week 3 days ago||Camps aren't totally useless||
Camps aren't totally useless for that reason (and maybe a couple others), but I think you always take into account the opponents' talent level when doing evaluations. Most of the guys who follow recruiting for a living (not me, but the evaluators at Rivals, Scout, etc.) have local guys who are familiar with the talent level. They know a guy who runs for 1,500 yards in the PSL is probably superior to the guy who runs for 1,500 yards in the Upper Peninsula. Even if you don't have that knowledge, you can see on film that a guy like De'Veon Smith - who busted lots of long runs in high school - won't have breakaway speed against Big Ten opponents.
That big-fish-in-a-small-pond aspect is part of the equation, but it's not totally necessary, IMO. Like a lot of recruiting stuff (including some of the stuff I do on my site), those camps are more about publicity, entertainment, etc. than determining or improving football skills.
|1 week 3 days ago||As mentioned above, it is an||
As mentioned above, it is an absolute must that you take kids from inside the state, whether they're can't-miss studs or not. If you ignore your home state, you're spurning your fan base and your local coaches. And if you piss off the coaches, they're not going to want to send their studs, walk-ons, etc. to your program.
It is simply not a viable option to ignore all the non-studs in the class. Even if means taking a 3-star linebacker and a 3-star offensive guard, you have to keep the in-state relationships. This is widely accepted, and no state around the country ignores their in-state talent. If you don't accept that fact, you're going to be disappointed.
|1 week 3 days ago||I'm not particularly high on||
I'm not particularly high on Dele' Harding, but the difference I see there is that Harding is a thumper, whereas Rogers isn't quite so physical. Rogers might be a better athlete, but I don't see him as a 3-4 inside linebacker being able to take on offensive guards, so I don't know if he would fit Michigan's scheme as well (presuming that Michigan goes to more of a 3-4).

My own personal opinion is that football is going to drop off a little bit. All the new information about concussions is going to cause a fair amount of parents to push their athletic sons into other sports and activities. I think that will happen in a lot of areas, most likely with well-to-do families who can afford other sports or activities.
I don't think the economy's fluctuations will have much to do with it, though. The thing that will change the amount of talent is the population. If people move to Detroit and its suburban areas, we will see more talent. If people move away, we will see less.

Unfortunately, camp performances mean a lot for rankings. Not only do I not use them (because I don't go to those camps), but I don't trust camp performances because they're not actual football.
I work with a guy who can hit about 70% of his three-pointers. Unfortunately for him, they're uncontested, he's about 50 years old, and he's about 5'7" tall. It's still impressive to hit that many threes, but it doesn't make a whole lot of difference if he can't do it in a game.

I don't think Ohio State would take Falcon at this point. Not only do they have Walker, but they also have 2016 ATH George Hill committed, who could play RB for them.
By the way, Falcon was offered before Walker committed.

It could have been a mistake on my part, but I believe when I looked up Corley originally (this was about a week ago), he was rated as a cornerback. It surprised me, too, because I think most schools are looking at him as a WR. Now he's ranked as the #24 WR on 247's Composite. Things change pretty regularly on those Composite rankings because they take into account the four major services.
|1 week 3 days ago||Thanks. I wrote up these||
Thanks. I wrote up these profiles over several days, so sometimes a re-ranking at any of the four sites can cause small variations in the 247 Composite. Or it might have just been a mistake on my part. Either way, I just made the correction. Matt Falcon is #219.

It's tough to fill an entire class with elite out-of-state recruits, since most stay close to home. It is important to try to get the best guys from within state borders.

I doubt that happens. I can't see Michigan not finding at least one Michigan player who won't want to play for Jim Harbaugh. I don't know who it will be, but it will be someone. I don't think has ever had a class without an in-state player, at least not in the modern recruiting era.

Yeah. New Magnus sucks.
|1 week 3 days ago||Yes. Detroit King has a||
Yes. Detroit King has a crap-ton of talent at defensive back. They have Corley, Hill, a 2016 corner named Dontre Boyd who has some decent offers, a 2016 safety named Jesse Johnson who has a couple offers, and then a lightning-fast 2017 corner named Ambry Thomas. So they have one junior and four senior defensive backs who will probably be playing Power Five-conference football.
|1 week 3 days ago||No. To be honest with you, I||
No. To be honest with you, I don't fully understand your question. The way I take that question, it means: Will the program fall apart if we don't get Player X? There are other, better players around the country, and Jim Harbaugh has the cache to get some of those players from Florida, Texas, California, Ohio, New Jersey, etc.
I think Corley is a very good player at a position of need, so he would be highest on my list of players to pursue.
|1 week 3 days ago||The fact is that most||
The fact is that most recruits from any school aren't going to become stars in college. You say that about Cass Tech because of a) Michigan's recent run and b) how many players Michigan has recruited from there. But there are players going elsewhere who have been successful (Barksdale, Gholston, etc.) and there are several players you're probably thinking of who are in the midst of their college careers. If Jourdan Lewis, Damon Webb, Michael Weber, and Dennis Finley turn into stars, you won't be saying the same thiing.
As for Michigan's particular run, William Campbell wasn't a dominant college player but got to the NFL. Thomas Gordon was a 3-star recruit and turned into a 3-year starter. Boubacar Cissoko probably could have been good if not for him going off the deep end with off-the-field issues. Jourdan Lewis seems to be doing pretty well. David Dawson is behind some older guys at offensive guard, but he still has a few years to get things going, which isn't rare for linemen.

Over the past few years, they rarely have. I think they won a few straight state championships before losing in the finals this past season.

Eason is head and shoulders above the rest as a pro-style guy, IMO. Patterson seems to have that "it" fact where he'll get the job done. I had a hard time choosing between Costello/Haskins for the third spot, and I picked Costello based on his level of competition.
I'll say this: anyone below Haskins would be slightly disappointing to me. They have their good qualities, but they won't leave with me with rosy feelings.
|1 week 6 days ago||yeah, he's from Washington||
Georgia went really hard after him, and as a pro-style quarterback, Georgia has done a good job of producing those kinds of guys in recent years. If you look at Matthew Stafford and then Aaron Murray, those guys have been record setters, Stafford was a high draft pick, etc. Plus it's a chance to play in the SEC, where most of the teams are running some sort of spread element in their game.
|1 week 6 days ago||If it's not too far out of||
If it's not too far out of your way, yeah, go ahead and check him out. He's a good high school quarterback, and who knows? You might see him on TV some day and be able to say that you watched him play in high school.
My two personal favorites after watching them are Eason (because he's really good) and Haskins (because he's so smooth).

He was previously committed and told that the staff would continue to recruit him, so I thought it would only be fair to include him.
That being said, I do not expect him to re-commit to Michigan, and I (like many others) have always thought that we could find a better QB for the 2016 class. His decommitment is a blessing in disguise, in my opinion.

Haskins has some very impressive film. Whoever ends up getting him will be happy, I think.
|1 week 6 days ago||With the size of the class||
With the size of the class right now, I do not think Michigan should take two quarterbacks. If one of the current guys transfers, then yes, I would take both.
As of right now, my hope is that Costello visits soon and commits, which would presumably put an end to QB recruiting for 2016.

That's a question I've been asking myself for years...

|2 weeks 11 hours ago||I'm not saying they should be||
I'm not saying they should be held to a higher moral standard. I'm simply explaining why it must be frustrating for the coaches who are affected by this.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||I don't really feel the need||
I don't really feel the need to argue this any further. I'm not necessarily agreeing with the coach. What I'm doing is offering the context from a coach's perspective.
|2 weeks 15 hours ago||I disagree. I don't think||
I disagree. I don't think it's "purely about wins and losses." You're oversimplifying it and twisting it to make it fit your argument.
And I'm not saying that wins/losses have nothing to do with it. They clearly do. What I'm saying is that when you're a coach and you work hard to recruit and develop players, it's frustrating to watch them up and leave for a better opportunity.
I don't think the polar opposite is a fifth year guy not being renewed. It's just not the same. Being a college athlete is essentially a job, and those athletes are being paid (with free tuition and other things, though actually paying players is not something I want to get into here). If you're not doing your job at an acceptable level and you have earned your degree, then I really don't see a problem with shaking a guy's hand and saying, "Thanks for everything you've done." I don't think that's overtly hurtful, because most guys (think about Bellomy, Rawls, etc.) realize that they're either going to be bit players or completely buried on the bench.
However, as I said above, a guy transferring to another school like Vernon Adams is basically saying, "You've done your job TOO WELL and now I'm too good for your program."
Again, I'm not saying it's right or wrong. But from the coach's perspective, it has to be frustrating.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||That's generous. The last||
That's generous. The last four guys we got from Florida (Tony Posada, Marvin Robinson, Richard Ash, Demar Dorsey) didn't go to the NFL, although I guess Ash still has a chance...
|2 weeks 18 hours ago||It is somewhat analogous to||
It is somewhat analogous to not extending a fifth year, but keep in mind that not getting a fifth year means "You're not getting the job done." A kid taking a grad transfer like Vernon Adams is saying, "You've done such a good job helping me become a good football player, I want to leave you for a better team."
|2 weeks 18 hours ago||Well, I think it's partly||
Well, I think it's partly because they're missing out on good football players, but that can logically be explained away (the best football players are improving their chances of furthering their career opportunities by playing at the best football schools). But I do think hurt feelings is a part of it.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||I think that's the difficult||
I think that's the difficult part to hash out. For example, Thomas Rawls was mostly buried on the bench, so it's understandable that he wants to go to CMU and be a lead back.
On the other hand, Vernon Adams - or Wayne Lyons - is not buried on the bench. So that's where your analogy reaches shaky ground.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||From the coach's perspective,||
From the coach's perspective, losing guys to the grad transfer has to be hurtful. You identify guys in high school, develop them for three or four years, and then watch them go play for another school - not take a job and move up in the world, but go play football for someone else. And let's be honest - most of these grad transfers are NOT taking place because of the Master's programs available.
I'm not saying it's right to lobby to change the rule, but these things are hurtful.
It's like your girl traded you for someone who's better looking and makes more money. Is it the right move for her? Quite possibly. Did you have a great time together? Sure. But now she's found somebody else (who's superior to you, at least in some ways), and it hurts to get dumped.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Correct. I could have||
Correct. I could have expanded that list to include other dynamic tight end athletes, such as Maxx Williams, Aaron Hernandez, Ben Watson, Devin Funchess, etc. I shouldn't have to list every super-athletic tight end in history to make my point, but oh well.
Anyway, I wrote in my commitment post on Wheatley that I think his best attribute is his ability to block. He's not going to take the top off of a defense, outrun safeties, leap 12 feet in the air to catch passes, etc. He is a good football player, but I do not think he will be an outstanding receiving tight end any more than Michigan-level Joe Schmoe tight end recruit can be.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I think other guys could have||
I think other guys could have done what he did as a freshman, and the hope is that Norfleet will be a better football player in 2015 than he was in 2012. There doesn't appear to be anyone scheduled to be on the roster in 2016 who can do everything he can do (slot receiver, run out of the backfield, return kicks/punts, etc.). I don't think it's a huge travesty or anything, but ultimately, if there's no glaring need to play freshmen, I just don't think they should play.

Personally, I don't see Whatley being a star tight end.

He's not Gronkowski or Jimmy Graham. The fact is that Harbaugh can probably take several of the tight ends on the roster and make them pretty good, but I don't know that you can say the same thing about other positions (safeties, OL, etc.).

I agree with #3 somewhat in that Hoke was sort of forced into playing some guys. The number of freshmen who played in 2014 was lower (Mone, Cole, Peppers, Canteen) partly because the roster had been built back up by last season, and Peppers even ended up with a medical redshirt, anyway.
I do think some of Hoke's non-redshirts were of his own doing, but he seemed to be fixing the error of his ways just before the on-field results got him fired.

It was necessary to play Morris because we took zero quarterbacks in the 2012 class, leaving Morris as the only guy when Bellomy tore his ACL (although, being honest, Morris was better than Bellomy immediately, anyway). So if we're talking about coaches wasting redshirts, Hoke wasted Morris's chance to redshirt because he chose to be a minimalist when it came to quarterbacks.
Hoke and Harbaugh had completely different philosophies about quarterbacks. Hoke brought in very few guys and wanted them to be "The Heir to the Throne." Harbaugh wants to bring in a ton of guys and let them scratch and claw for it.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I annoyed the powers that be||
I annoyed the powers that be here at MGoBlog by questioning their interpretations on Jake Ryan during the second half of the season when he started playing better. He was slow to make reads in the first half of the year, but then he got quicker in the second half of the year. He's also really tough to block and disruptive as a blitzer. Ryan was in the top three or four tacklers in the Big Ten, was named all-conference, and was a Butkus Award finalist.
Desmond Morgan is a little bit limited athletically (although he obviously made that amazing one-handed INT against UConn in 2013). He won't make plays from sideline to sideline, and he's not an effective blitzer. What he can do is blast offensive guards and fullbacks in the chest and either knock them backward or stop them in their tracks, which is something that Jake Ryan didn't really do, because Ryan used quickness to sidestep blockers.
Morgan is more consistent and Ryan is flashier, but if we erase the memories of the first half of 2014 when Ryan was adjusting to the position, Ryan's occasional inconsistences are made up for by his instinct and athleticism.

I think Wormley could back up Charlton at DE or Henry at DT. I just don't think you're going to get much of a pass rush from Wormely on the outside, so he's better off playing in a 5-tech or 3-tech spot. He might be more valuable on running downs than Ojemudia, who's smaller/quicker, but I don't expect Wormley to be a starter this year either way.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I don't think anyone expects||
I don't think anyone expects him to get a ton bigger. He's one of those guys you would use as a weakside guy to run all over the field and make plays. I would expect him to play weakside outside linebacker if he were to come to Michigan. Add a few pounds to his frame, of course, but I think he's a guy who would probably max out at about 220-225 lbs. in college.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, Isaac is a very good||
Yes, Isaac is a very good receiver. In fact, there were some who thought he would be best suited by playing wide receiver or H-back coming out of high school, although I don't see him as a WR at all and think he should touch the ball more than an H-back. I think Isaac is going to be the best receiving tailback we've seen in a long time, although obviously there are some questions about how Harbaugh's offense will be run, whether he'll throw to the running backs much, etc.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||The running schemes used||
The running schemes used today (lots of zone, power, etc.) have to be run out of I-formation or Pistol formations, so I think that's one major differency. With the old formations that you saw the Raiders, 49ers, etc. use with split backs, the pre-snap positioning of the tailback/fullback made them more of a threat to get the edge on swing passes. If you think about the Pistol formation, the tailback is now 6 yards deep and directly in the middle of the field, which means he's going to be too deep and take too long to get the edge to be much of a threat unless it's a screen or some kind of delayed pass route. By formation necessity, the fullback becomes the passing target because he can sneak out of the backfield a little bit easier and get leverage on defensive ends/linebackers. So I think there are positives and negatives to each kind of offense. Obviously, with all the records being set these days, a lot of people would probably say that the current schemes are superior to those of the '80's and '90's.

They weren't asked to catch many passes. A lot of Norfleet's catches either came out of the slot or from him motioning/running routes out of the backfield, but he wasn't really a running back, so I wouldn't really include him here.
Also, I don't think it does much good to put a lumbering guy like Kerridge or Smith out in space. Those aren't the types of guys you want to throw a ton of passes to. Kerridge can help you out on bootlegs and such, but he's not going to break a ton of tackles and they're not going to make you miss.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Gore caught 11 passes. Hyde||
Gore caught 11 passes. Hyde caught 12. Alfonso Smith caught 3. Bruce Ellington caught 6. Fullback Bruce Miller caught 18.
That's 32 catches by running backs, plus 18 by the fullback. So they completed passes to running backs about 3 times a game.
Remember that in a play-action-heavy offense, the running back is usually the guy sucking up defenders, so he's not going to be targeted a ton. This isn't a split-back West Coast offense like the 49ers used to run where Roger Craig ran all kinds of flare routes and angle routes.

|2 weeks 2 days ago||I think Morgan is better||
I think Morgan is better suited to the inside linebacker position that I believe will exist in 2015, which is more of a 3-4 inside linebacker. Morgan is better at stuffing things up, taking on blockers, etc. He is not, however, a bigger playmaker, blitzer, edge defender, etc.
Ryan, like you said, improved significantly throughout the season last year. He was okay for the first few games, but he was pretty darn good by the second half of the year. I think too many people here looked at the first part of the season and said "Ryan isn't any good at this MLB stuff." There was a learning curve that should have been expected, and people jumped to conclusions.
I think we'll miss Jake Ryan for his playmaking ability and his range. But with the defensive tackles returning and if the defensive backs improve (which, gosh, I hope they do), I think the defense should be better in 2015 than it was last year.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||With Michigan likely going to||

It's important to know the difference, so I get that aspect, but some of these words should not be "outlawed" in general.
Also, eliminating words like "crazy" and "insane" is ridiculous. Many of these words are used to convey a particular message. "You're insane for pulling a third all-nighter this week" is not something that should be removed from the English language.

I think Weber will either be good and enjoy his time at Ohio State, or he'll get passed up and end up playing for Youngstown State or CMU in a few years. Ohio State is still Ohio State.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but Wayne Lyons committed to the program Harbaugh built at Stanford just a day after Harbaugh was hired by the NFL.

Our coach is not trying to create new alliances here. He's known these people for five years or so.

It's not far from the point at all.
In some cases, parents get hired to help out the family and ensure that the football player actually joins the program. "Your job depends on getting your son to come here" essentially.
In this case, we're not talking about a high schooler who has no means to support himself. Lyons is (approximately) 22 years old with a degree from Stanford who could presumably go out into the world and get a job immediately. Furthermore, Lyons only has one year of college eligibility remaining, so Michigan isn't exactly creating a long-term position for a long-term bump. If Michigan gets Lyons (which is at the very least probable), you're talking about a guy who might get Michigan from 7 wins to 8 or 8 wins to 9. He's not going to win the Heisman or the Thorpe Award. He's not going to turn Michigan into a national championship-caliber team.
EDIT: Furthermore, Michigan recruited Lyons out of high school, and Harbaugh did, too. This is not a new romance. Lyons could very well transfer to Michigan, regardless of whether his mom has a job or not. If you've got a job that needs filling, a woman with family connections to the team, and she has the necessary skills/qualifications, then I don't see a problem.

Different strokes for different folks. UCLA recruits a lot of kids from the west coast, and obviously there are geographical issues.

Not a whole lot of that story makes sense.
With those types of kids, you just have to throw up your hands and say "S*** happens."
I remember reading an article about kids who change their commitment during their recruitment. Those types of kids have a lower success rate in college football than the kids who commit just once. Granted, Michigan gets their share of guys who flip (Gentry, Washington, Higdon, etc.), but there are some reasons to doubt the wishy-washy kids.

I was just skimming UCLA's classes, and including this year so far, they have not taken a guy listed by Rivals as a tight end since the 2012 class, when they got Ian Taubler. If they whiff on Clark and Wheatley (and any others they're pursuing), that would be three straight classes without a true tight end.
Anyway, I don't think Michigan can miss on both Clark and Wheatley. Otherwise, I think the staff would have sent out more offers in the past couple days. So I believe we'll get one of the two, but probably not both. Clark is the better tight end prospect, but if we got both, then maybe Wheatley could play defensive end, which is where I think he fits best. Oh well.
