"I love it that Ivy League coaches are coming to our camp and Big Ten coaches are coming to our camp. South Florida is coming. We've got about 70 schools that are coming to our camp."

Professional Philanthropist. I think Bill Gates needs some competition.

The star rankings seem to indicate that previous talent was not being developed. Another explanation is that the former staff was not talented at player evaluation, and stocked a stable of over rated players. (I don't think that is true, but I'm not an expert like many on this site).
I don't think anyone can say the cupboard is bare. If, by "climb back to the top" you mean the top of the Big Ten, I agree that it probably won't take long. There's no reason for the team to not be as good as (gag) moo u in the next few years.
But, unitl Michigan has unequivocal pre-NFL talent, beginning at QB, LT, and TB, no one should expect miracles.
With that being said, I'm sure seeing a potential dynasty in the making. This thing will snowball before we know it, and it's going to be a beautiful thing to watch.

Please leave this story right where it is....it's a great one. Welcome Mr. Higdon. You will never regret the decision you have made. Iowa is a great institution, but Michigan is simply better.
Next year, you will be a student athlete at the highest ranked public university in the country, with an opportunity to contribute to a team that will reach similar heights. After you are finished playing, you will have a degree that opens doors not just in the Midwest, but all over the world.
We are fortunate to have you on board. Go Blue!

I think I remember Gholston being pretty good, and wishing he was not a buck boy........
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Keeping the faith.||
So it looks like it's down to:
Desperate to fill a spot and raiding the Chips.
Keeping options open, in case an expected letter never comes.
A conversion to FB.
A courtesy interview.
Let's just get it over with and add preferred walk on, and grey shirt. Any of those are fine with me except the first, which I can't see as being the case at all.
I'm about due for a Titos and Michigan Blueberry Kool Aid: We are going to get Weber, Marshall, Clark, Wheatley, Smith and Jefferson.... or a bunch of other guys who great coaches will mold into great players, and fine young men. Those who come will never regret their decision.

He was a sure thing. As sure as Dee Hart.

Congratulations on your degree, and best of luck on your future, both with football and beyond.
As you will continue to see, it's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Easy Choices||
Best of luck to Mike Weber, and I'm glad he is learning valuable lessons he can apply to the rest of his life.
Almost all meaningful decisions in life have up sides and down sides.
Here's to hoping he decides to be a part of the beginning of a Michigan dynasty, and home town hero!

This was probably the rest of the paragraph:
"You're the only DE we're offering. We're 110% behind you. But we need to know if you are 110% behind us. We will give you and your family X days to think it over. If we don't hear by then that you are 110% with us, we must assume you may sign elsewhere, and it's our responsibility to keep looking/offering. Our offer to you is good for as long as we have a spot."

He's building it, and they will come.
Best of luck to Iman, whatever he decides.
Here's to hoping he decides to be part of a dynasty, and one of the cornerstones of the best D since 1997. I believe that is what is taking shape, and those who buy in will never regret the decision.

It is highly unlikely his Dad will be a coach on his team, wherever he goes.
Just because no contact has been made does not mean that none has been attempted.
Maybe no contact has been attempted because the contact person is not certain if his Dad is going to be offered a spot. Maybe they are waiting for something else to play out.
This situation willlikely unfold rapidly. I'd only be disappointed if the kid said he was not coming to Michigan without hearing what they had to say.
In any event, I wish him and his Dad all the best, at Michigan, or wherever they land.

My H-Day moment was seeing the clip of him deplaning for the first time, with his kids wearing Michigan gear. Despite hearing from people for over a week that a verbal "done deal" had been reached, it all crystallized when I saw that clip.
I always tried to get behing Rich Rod, and even thought he should have gotten one more year. Yet, there was always a nagging doubt in my heart.
I loved Hoke's gutteral passion, but I never lost the feeling that we had Fred Flintstone, when we needed Mr. Slate.
I will always remember that clip coinciding with my realization of 100% confidence that Michigan has a leader perfectly developed for, and positioned for, the success we all dream will be achieved.

Mid top 20 class because of size only. Michigan will get who they want. Some who previously opted out, will come back. There will be at least a couple of pleasant surprizes due to new assistants bringing some kids, and maybe some CA flips because of JH's connections.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||MI $$$ To SF?||
Interesting opinions expressed on Michigan paying SF to avoid conflict/ litigation.
If that really happened, would Michigan have not negotiated to have JH released after the Niners were out of the playoff picture?
I still beleive we are simply waiting for him to be fired, then he signs the Michigan contract.

Don't forget programs that have done so well, or well enough, that they lose someone to the NFL. Especially when it's a nearby program with at least equal, and probably greater appeal to available candidates than Michigan.
I think it's at least 50:50 scenario that ND will be looking to replace Kelly.

Just a wild guess, but maybe he thought Borgess was not doing a very good job, and that he could substatially upgrade the position. And maybe he thinks Funk is doing a good job and/or he cannot substantial upgrade the position.

Your first premise is to disregard "Knowing what you know now."
I probably would have been wooed to the golden coast. One trip to USC and I never would have looked back.

Indeed. Hope is that which the game is built upon.
How many of these kids hope and dream of careers that have odds similar to the lotto?
Some would even say their hopes are exploited.
