His choice, or the coaching staff's?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||B1G?||
I'll hazard a guess:
We're not in football season, so room for more wide-ranging posts.
A potential starter for an in-division competitor has left the team.
I can't say I'll revisit the thread again, but did find it interesting. It's at least more relevant to Michigan football than Clint Dempsey tearing up a pad of paper.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Davis effect?||
I wonder how much of a factor, if any, Kingston Davis might have been in this offer.
I am in no way suggesting that Joshnson is not worthy of an offer on his own merits, but having both teammates committed (along with Washington already on campus) will only help our attempts to keep Davis in the fold as he fields more serious interest from many of the top SEC programs.
Clearly the coaches would not have offered Johnson if they did not feel he was qualified, but maybe the teammate factor weighed in a bit?
|15 weeks 13 hours ago||Agreed||
Depth is much greater on the D-line, which is also accustomed to platooning.
O-line lacks the depth, and guys were not playing with the folks they usually would.
To me the spring game only confirmed that we have much more depth in run defense than o-line, but not much more.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||You missed it...||
...His uniform changed.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Depth Chart Spacing||
Not redshirting Malzone would also provide a bit of space on the depth chart between Malzone and Gentry, though who knows if Gentry would stay around if there is a player just one year ahead of him who is at/near the top of the depth chart.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Or||
...Or Rudock makes a leap with improved coaching and improves from servicable to very good.
Either Rucock or any other QB functioning as a better QB this year than Rudock was over the last two is fine by me!
|16 weeks 5 days ago||1 year||
Malzone, Gentry, Speight, and Morris will all have 1 year in the system. At this point it, unfortunately, seems unclear if Speight and Morris' previos time in the previous system was helpful.
I expect a transfer before the 2016 season, but it could just as easily be O'Korn if he arrives this year and then realizes that any number of QBs already on the roster are in front of him going into the 2016 campaign.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Transfers||
I agree with the depth thought as well... Assuming no one transfers out before the season starts.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Turned stones.||
Has anything been published to indicate that he has any interst in Michigan, or vice versa?
|17 weeks 4 days ago||I believe so||
IIRC, Harbaugh did not contact DeWeaver at all, and Drevno let him know they would be recruiting other QBs in the class.
|19 weeks 2 hours ago||.||
|20 weeks 7 hours ago||A few thoughts...||
I'd go with ZIngerman's Deli over the Roadhouse, but that's just my preference.
May add Pizza House to the list, depending on what you're looking for.
Angelo's or the Broken Egg for breakfast.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Atomic Bunting||
If we're up big in the 4th at home, Bunting will be put in for punt returns so that he can do his own special dance to Atomic Dog.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Floor too||
Not that I am not excited for the real upside, but I'm happy to think how much higher the floor is as well!
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Not true?||
I believe that I just read somewhere that there is no "conditional" release from an LOI. It's either in force, or it is not.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Seriously?||
I have a crazy idea...
How about having the coaching staff spend more than one month getting to know the recruits before they have to commit?
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Yes||
Unless we start changing coaches every year, this will likely help notably more than it hurts.
To answer your question, yes, I still want it... particularly as we have our (hopefully long-term) coach already on board.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Certainly if Harbaugh||
Certainly if Harbaugh continues to bring in two QBs per year, we'll be seeing many moving out over time.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Trying to make up for the||
Trying to make up for the derth of good NM high school football coverage.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Positive spin?||
I am going to tell myself that this is because the coaches feel good about Weber and started slow-playing Booker, even if it is just because this makes me feel happier going into the weekend.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Good strategy.||
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Rick||
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed.||
I wasn't adding that ingo to refute what you said, just adding a bit of info that the previous post might have been referencing. Without an offer, I'd call it evaluating more than recruiting as well.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||No offer, I believe, but||
Markel Bush visited January 23rd.
My quick googling showed no ratings on the major services, but I could have missed one.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Alternate Source||
Here's a similar MacPreps article for those who don't want to BR.
The New Mexico theme is interesting.

It also says he committed to Wisconsin before he visited. Sounds like perhaps he was committed to Indiana, but immediately jumped at the opportunity to move to a "biggger" program... hopefully the same will be the case with the Michigan offer.
