I must admit, that i am quite impressed with the work. That had to take quite a bit of time to complete.
But anyways, it is so great to see how this class is shaping up to be. Realistically, i think we have a great shot at landing SEVERAL more prospects on that list (Ty Isaac, Eddie Vanderdoes?, EJ Levenberry, Laquon Treadwell, Henry Poggi, Dorian O'Daniel, Devon Allen, Ben Gedeon, Donovan Munger) with a more outside shot with (S'ua Cravens, Kendall Fuller, and Joe Mathis).
I would throw in some others (Ethan Pocic, Preist Willis, Cory Luke, and Darian Hicks) but at this time i would have to believe we are probably full at those positions.
That was just a quick run through...anybody i miss?

At this point, i think Jake is definitely a must get. I feel like he could be close to committing, however i think he doesnt want to pull the trigger to fast incase OSU does come calling. Hopefully our early offer does mean alot to him like he says it does though. I believe this is one of the circumstances where the coaches need to push him to an early committment, becasue if not, his spot could be takin up pretty soon. What do you guys think?
|3 years 41 weeks ago||I find this absolutely||
I find this absolutely hilarious that high school coaches are beginning to take notice of this. I doubt it, but i wonder if any athletes take Meyer's recruiting strategy offensive.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Going a little off question||
Going a little off question 1:
Is NT the same term as a 5-tech?
And if so, is Pipkens and Campbell both slated for that spot? Or if those two guys are the best players in the interior, is there a possibility for one to move to the 3-tech?
And also, i feel like we have some pretty solid talent at LB for the next couple years. With all these guys, how do you think the depth chart will shape up, lets say, in two years?
I feel like Beyer is very underated, and has some hidden talent, however it doesnt seem likely that he will overcome Ryan on the depthchart. Is it safe to say that the SAM is Ryan's for the next 3 years?
At the MLB, you already mentioned that Morgan will most likely move in the middle. In 2013, who do you think challenges him for that spot.
And last, the WILL. What do you feel the 2-deep will be in 2013?

I do have a few questions for you Magnus.
1. Is the DE rotation something like this?
Clark at WDE, Black at SDE, and Roh being able to play either DE spot?
2. After next year, who do you see filling in for Kenny Demens at MLB spot?
Is Morgan a WLB all the way? or do you see him slipping inside to the MLB, and therefore paving a way for either Bolden, Ross, etc at the WILL?
3. Who do you project to be the starting defensive backfield next year?
I'd have to go with Countess, Floyd, Kovacs, Gordon, with Avery/Taylor fighting for Nickel and i also believe Jarrod Wilson has a good shot at seeing the field

Do you think he could be a potential sleeper?
And are you willing to voice your opinion on Shallman? I really am curious what others think about his skillset.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Norfleet||
I am just curious of what others think about Dennis on the football field. Speaking for myself, I believe he is an absolute playmaker, and i am eager to see him suit up in the maize and blue. His highlight film, in my mind, is very impressive, he has blazing speed, and he is very well built. I believe as a junior he will see valuable playtime and be a solid contributor for us. We can only hope!
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Mgoblog Community||
I have a few questions i would like to ask the mgoblog community.
First, Do people really believe Wyatt Shallman (if he commits obviously) will end up at RB?
After watching his highlights, i feel like too often he tends to avoid contact instead of just using his size and just running people over. I feel like he dances to much in the backfield. I got the intensions that he would be used as a bull-rushing RB in short yardage situations, and in my opinion im not sure if thats him.
Second, Do you guys think down the road that Desmond King will earn an offer?
After watching his highlights, i must admit that i am pretty impressed with the kids toughness. He seems like a very solid RB, however despite his size, it seems like his future is at CB. His highlight film does not show too much defensive play though.

|4 years 4 weeks ago||Honestly i agree i with most||
Honestly i agree i with most of the mgousers here...i dont believe Rugters will EVER join our conference...their simply not that prestiges
|4 years 4 weeks ago||Agreed||
I totally agree, however the only thing on their mind is probably engraving Keenum's name deeper into the record book
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Maty Mauk||
For those wondering about Maty's skill set and/or character, i have played against Maty (Actually intercepted him! although he was a freshman at the time lol) and have ran track against him where i have talked to him multiple times. First of all Maty's athleticism is greatly underated. And to be honest i didnt think he was all that athletic either until i played close attention this year during track. Dont feel like looking his times and jumps up and what not but im pretty sure he hit a high 22 this year in the 200m and i believe he jumped 23 ft. a couple times in the long jump..and on top of that he was the anchor of their 4x1 team that went to state and the 4x2 that shoulda went but they got disqualified in our regional meet. For his size and being a QB, he can move.
And although one can argue that Kenton's receivers made Maty look good with all the bubbles and slip screens they run, he simple picked apart every defense he played against. Kid has good field awareness and one hell of an arm.
Now i dont personally know know Maty so therefore i dont know a whole lot about his character but what from i do know is that Maty is like any other kid. And from talking to him at track meets, he doesnt really talk a whole lot, nor does he come off as an cocky ass like most probably think he does.
And just throwing my opinion out there...ive scrimaged against tyler occoner and we did a 7on7 against LCC last year...I would definitely have to go with Maty Mauk over Ty Occonor
|4 years 41 weeks ago||Yesss he does...everyone knew||
Yesss he does...everyone knew he was going to do that move, yet everytime he still got everyone with it. As for our league, it isnt to bad at all..full of future D2 players and addition to some D1 players. As much as i hate to say it....Kenton was just thatttt good this year..It was damn near impossible to stop their offense...and they made nearly everyone just look so stupid because you just didnt know what they were going to do next.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||Although i do agree with you,||
Although i do agree with you, I think Michigan does have a very good chance of landing him. His Whole family are all Michigan fans, which definitely cant hurt any. Maty also runs track, so here in a month or so i am going to talk to him and see whats the latest with him.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||I can forever say i picked||
I can forever say i picked Maty off in high school...now granted he was only a freshman and i was only a sophomore...but hey i'll take it!
But this kid is the real deal. Let me tell you, this kid is damn near impossible to sack. and he is very elusive and has a very strong arm. This year (my senior year) they totally smashed us and I think most of it has to do with Maty. They run a 5-wide formation EVERY play, which litterally means every play is on Maty's shoulders. He is pretty athletic as well. He'd be a great addition and hopefully he hops on board so i can say in the future when hes on the field in the winged helmet that I intercepted him back in the day!
