|1 year 1 week ago||2nd place now||
Henry overtook him with a huge game (~120 yards) last week.
|1 year 1 week ago||I'm alright with Lewis||
I'm alright with Lewis topping out as a semi-finalist. King has a ton of INTs, Hargreaves is the best cover guy in the nation, and Lewis did give up a lot of yards against MSU (despite a overall solid performance).
But Butt's omission is a travesty. He's 2nd out of all P5 tight ends in yardage -- about 200 more than the Stanford and Clemson TEs and only 40 fewer yards and the same number of TDs as Henry. Without a doubt, he's performed like one of the top 2 TEs in the nation this season.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Good list||
Michigan fans are probably most familiar with Charles Rogers, Lamarr Woodley, Andrew Maxwell, Thomas Rawls, and Mark Ingram, all of whom came out of the SVL. Jake Long played at Lapeer East, which is now Lapeer High. Lapeer entered the SVL in 2014.
The league is a step below the Detroit Catholic League (where OLSM plays).

Engineering at Alabama is much more challenging and monetarily rewarding than Sports Management at Michigan.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Assuming he loses his||
Assuming he loses his football scholarship, I'll bet he leaves the school of his own accord and accepts a scholarship elsewhere in the future.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||I really don't think Jones||
I really don't think Jones was deliberately setting the kid up to get knocked out. It looks like he was just jabbering with the guy, but both Jones and the victim had their hands down and didn't have confrontational body posture.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||This sounds right. Harris is||
This sounds right. Harris is much faster, but Weber has shown a lot more power and balance between the tackles. Weber is a better fit for the Michigan offense, but Harris would have been a better complement to the other bruising between-the-tackles backs we already have on the roster.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||It's not an average of the||
It's not an average of the rankings on the 4 sites. Instead, they average out the rankings on the 4 sites, then re-rank everybody based on that score.
For example, imagine that Player A and Player B are the two best prospects in the country.
On the 4 services, Player A is ranked 1, 2, 3, and 4. That averages 2.5.
Player B is ranked 2, 2, 4, 4. That averages 3.
Player A has the lowest score in the country (2.5), so he's ranked #1 in the composite. Player B is #2.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||kinda||
He listed a top 5 with Michigan listed first and Stanford listed second. Multiple insiders have suggested that the list is in order, but I don't think Taylor has explicitly said so.
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Michigan stopped recruiting||
Michigan stopped recruiting both Mack and Jones.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Question||
How did Burrell, Settle, and Hand decide to come up together? Did the coaches reach out to them and, knowing they live near each other, suggest they all show up? Or did the kids suggest it to the Michigan coaches?
|3 years 18 weeks ago||South Carolina||
South Carolina has the #1 and #2 WDEs from 2015 according to the 247composite. Rankings are pretty similar to the Michigan duo, though I'd of course prefer to have my elite players playing different positions.
Alabama has two 2015 composite 5-stars committed already. Technically Harris is a 4-star right now, though it sounds like that will change soon since Rivals suggested that he's being considered for their top 5 overall.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||WDE||
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Froholdt||
Am I the only one whose mind is totally blown seeing Hjalte Froholdt at #14 overall? When we offered him a greyshirt, nobody knew who the kid was. His tape doesn't look unusually impressive, his physique and athleticism are good but not otherworldly, and he is very inexperienced. I figured he'd end up a 3-star type, but ESPN has him pegged as an early blue chip 5-star.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||QB camp?||
I think Speight is going to a QB camp in San Diego and bringing along Drake to catch balls.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||To add on to this, Peppers||
To add on to this, Peppers has teased a surprise visit at the end of May, but he won't say where. These two tweets add up to a surprise visit to New York (ESPN's studios?) at the end of May so the two ESPN 150 players can commit on TV.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Don't forget about Mone.||
Don't forget about Mone.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Hand and McDowell||
I don't think Marshall's commitment would have as much of an effect on our pursuit of Hand & McDowell as people seem to think. He's a classic WDE while Hand is a SDE and McDowell is a SDE that could also play DT.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Sure...||
...but what's the point of being worth millions if you have to live in Ohio?
|3 years 38 weeks ago||5 years...||
What I found most interesting is this statement:Said Hand: "Can I live there for five years (and) do I get along with the people there?"
He's the top recruit in the country and he's planning on spending five years in college? Most elite kids are not planning on redshirting and are hoping to be in the NFL by the end of Year 3. Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but I love this kid's character.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||A good problem to have||
|3 years 39 weeks ago||I don't think so||
We're talking about still-growing athletes who are improving their leg strength and doing regular speed training with professional coaches. They're adding weight, but it's primarily muscle, which tends to increase speed rather than slow you down. I could see why a guard might slow down a touch by going from 270 to 310 lbs, but skill position players should become substantially faster.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Oops||
Replied to the wrong message
|3 years 40 weeks ago||This class will be much||
This class will be much larger than 16. That's the number of scholarships available right now, but attrition will occur due to injuries, transfers, forgone fifth years, early NFL draft entrees, player misconduct, etc. We'll probably end up with a little over 20 commits, which is should be plenty to have a top 5 class if there's a lot of quality top-to-bottom.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Ahem....||
"(Mason and I) talked about it -- we're going to go to the same school. We know for a fact we're going to the same school."
"If me and Tay do end up going to the same school, that will definitely influence George [Campbell] a lot. Us three are like brothers. It would definitely sway his decision a little bit."
|3 years 42 weeks ago||He said he views Michigan||
He said he views Michigan State to be even with all the other schools that have offered. He may not have called up Dantonio and officially decommitted, but the kid is not going to play football at Michigan State.
These Kentucky rumors seem to be baseless, but the truth is that Kentucky would probably be my #1 choice of school for Drake Harris if he eventually spurns Michigan. Let's keep him away from Ohio, MSU, Notre Dame, and any team that we might see in a bowl game one day. Kind of like how I feel about Treadwell -- I wish he'd came to Michigan, but at least he's at Ole Miss and we don't have to deal with defending the kid for the next four years.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||I like his wheels, but he's||
I like his wheels, but he's way too slow to be a college running back. If Hawaii's coaches have any sense, they'll stick this kid at the nose and let him chase down QBs all day.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Relax||
If you listen to recruits, it's pretty clear that Michigan plays fast and loose with the Woodson card. Every year there seems to be a handful of guys who make some statement along the lines of, "Coach said I could become the next Woodson!"
To be honest, I'm surprised it gets kids so excited; most of them were 0-2 years old when Woodson won the Hesiman.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Why haven't we shown interest||
Why haven't we shown interest in Reilly Gibbons? He's got offers from Ohio State and Florida, and I'm sure his brother could put a good word in for the good guys.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Wait...?||
So you don't want Michigan to land most of their 2014 targets?
