So if he commits sooner or later he goes to VT, but we get him if it's anything else? :)

It almost seemed like USC did it every other year. That Snoop Dogg/Lion guy sure can recruit.

Scout last year, ESPN this year. Next year will depend on how they rate our recruits.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Not the best write up I've||
Not the best write up I've read on this site. Richardson, a kid who hasn't really played yet is the best comparison?
I'm fairly excited about Lewis and think he will be a starter in a few years.

We need a new category for you: glass half empty or glass half full won't do. How about a third option: Old Testament flood.

This wasn't a bad speech, but a surprising a choice. I attended a graduation at Michigan Tech many years ago and the speaker was Rosa Parks. The vast majority of the graduates were engineers and the composition of the audience was beyond vanilla white. Seemed like a nice lady and she gave a decent speech, but I never would have guessed the speaker beforehand to say the least. Not much civil rights activity occurred in Houghton, MI.

I still have a hard time viewing a 5'10 corner who weighs 176 lb (per the spring roster) a half year before his freshman season starts as small. The NFL has a bunch of CBs that are around 5'10 and under 190 lb. While important, I just think CB height can sometimes be over-valued.

Not a guru, but from what I've read Peppers is probably above Hargreaves and Fuller and some think the best DB in many years.

Speight looks like he's out of central casting for a QB.

Northwestern just as hot as Michigan on the recruiting trail? Really ESPN? We have 8 player in your top 150 and NW has none.
|4 days 5 hours ago||Losing thirteen 4* or 5*||
Losing thirteen 4* or 5* players in four years is incredible. Even though ND is recruiting extremely well and reloading quickly, this has to show up on the field at some point (hopefully against UM this year).
|4 days 23 hours ago||Great to hear the Wilton has||
Great to hear the Wilton has a strong arm, since that was one concern some people had when he committed. While he needs to improve his footwork and over mechanics, he's got a few years to accomplish it. I will be curious to see how quickly he progresses with all the training he is getting.

I was guessing he means a tall QB that stands in the pocket and isn't moving around a lot.

Bo would occasionally call a reverse where the QB would pitch the ball towards the running back, but the WR would catch it going the other direction. Jim Smith was the WR and it would typically result in a solid gain.
Smith had good size and was quite an athlete. He was preceded by another good receiver, named Gil Chapman. Chapman wasn't as big, but was another really good athlete. I think they used to refer to the position they often played as a "wing back."

Tell Marvin we wish him well and hope he has a great final season at Ferris.

If he played one more year at Michigan, I believe his eligibility would be exhausted. I don't believe he redsirted his freshman like Mike Jones did.

If I jumped out of an airplane, I would NEED a bathrooom.

Have fun playing for Brian Kelly.

Landing JuJu would be a big commitment. Watched his video and he looks really good.

I think someone showed that it's not significantly worse for injuries to play kick-returner, but I still hate seeing a key player return kick-offs. There are some violent hit with two guys running full speed at each other. Would prefer to see a back-up get the job.

I'd be OK with a telegram, Pony Express delivered letter or smoke signals...just as long as he commits to Michigan

You be correct.

OK, so WolvinLA2 has officially stated that Booker has academic and behavior issues. Got it, now it's part of the MGoBlog record. Everyone please duly note this. :)

Swain is an interesting prospect. Looks pretty instinctive, good size, decent speed and he can deliver a solid hit.
|1 week 3 days ago||In their write-up of the||
In their write-up of the recent Chicago NFTC, Scout basically said that Watson looked short and slow. Shortly after that camp, Michigan started to cool on Watson.
I loved the way he hit, but he just didn't look like a top linebacker on his film.

I just watched his junior film and I think you hit the nail on the head, it doesn't have a "wow factor." He looks good, which is why he's a 4* player, and he get's the job done. However, he doesn't tackle with a lot of force and make big hits. On many plays he wrestles the ball carrier down. He also appears to be a pretty smooth athlete and pretty efficient in his steps, so it tends to make him look less dynamic.
All that said, I'm really happy with his commitment. With his size and speed, along with some Mallory/Mattison coaching, I expect him to be a good player down the road. I think a bunch of coaching staffs missed the boat by not offering him a scholarship....although it wouldn't have mattered after the UM offer.

The weight limit is violated with just Lewan riding solo.

No, it's behind a paywall.
|1 week 5 days ago||Here's his combine||
Here's his combine numbers:
6'4, 236 lb, 4.78 40 time, 31.2 vertical, 4.22 pro-shuttle, 8-9.6 broad jump, 7.37 L-cone, 36.9 power ball. There's conflicting info on whether the 40 time is electronic or hand timed. Either way, the shuttle and L-cone times are blazing for his size and 40 time, and better than almost the entire field at the combine.
