Looks faster than Falcon and would beat Derrick Green by 10 meters in the 100.

Don't want to sound like Fred Jackson, but this kid is much faster than Mike was.

He plays in Houston Texas - most likely a much tougher league than anything in Michigan.

Luck was a high four star and composite #3 pro style QB according to 247.

Why test a guy who was clearly never intended to play that night. Total BS and very suspicious.
I know "dead horse" but... Damn!

We didn't need him in 2013. He hardly played at all - another needless waste of a year of eligibility. Water under the bridge...

Most of us are very hopeful that JH will reverse the trend of wasted redshirts, but perhaps he can also mitigate some of the damage that has been done in that regard over the past few years. Why not smooth out the kinks in the roster for 2017 by handing out a few non-freshman redshirts. The defensive ones that seem most doable to me are:
Stribling - Gives him another year to fill out and we are deep at CB this year.
Dymonte - A year of good coaching and then two more years to live up to his potential. Could say the same for Delano Hill but one of them has to play this year for depth.
Gedeon - We are stacked at ILB this year and light next year. Has great potential to be a valuable 2 year starter in '16 and '17.
There are a couple I would like to see on offense as well:
Houma - He's not needed this year with Kerridge, and would give us a senior FB next year.
De'Veon - Convince him that if he has any future in the NFL it is at FB. Take a year to put on 15 lbs. of muscle and learn the position - he already has the attitude and could still be useful in short yardage

By June there will be room for Lyons if we can get him. Natural attrition and the medicals that Hoke alluded to.

Even more bizzare because now we could really use him at FB or H Back.

The kid is a baller.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Hello Grant Perry||
The OP is not about the messenger it is the message... which Sam Webb strongly alluded to this morning. Great news that Grant Perry has finally gotten the offer to his dream school, and great news for us because this kid can really play. He loves Michigan and he's a playmaker. Great get.
PS: I don't get the hate for Teddy Blanks. Whether he is 15 or 50, he has come up with a lot of good info since the search. He may not be an insider, but he is on the case.

Fullback is the only thing that makes sense.

Sam Webb has been saying for days that if Pickard does not choose Michigan it is because we have another TE/DE commit that we prefer. Too bad - I love kids that are so pumped about being a wolverine but... Harbaugh!
|5 weeks 7 hours ago||Red Shirt Houma||
Kerridge will be good this year so why not red shirt Houma to save him for next year. Hopefully we have seen that last of the wasted red shirts.

Danny O'Bien was the anti-liberal. Remember Butch Jones is from Michigan and coached at Central so he has good connections here.

Don't be surprised if Manning comes back when Mattison retires.

Makes a lot of sense as young JH will have help from Baxter with TEs while learning STs from the master = Win Win.

"When Tom Herman opted to accept the head coaching job at Houston, immediate concerns arose about Joe Burrow. The Class of 2015 quarterback commitment had his concerns regarding his future in Columbus."
FWIW Meyer made it a point to do an in home with him today.

Brian's tweet is the sweet music.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||We need the '/s' because:||
There are many comments on the blog that are so out of touch that they could (should) be sarcastic... but they aren't intended to be. Things like not understanding the insanity of wasted red shirts; not wanting Hogan because it would insult Shane; etc., etc..
The sarcastic comments on Ryan Davis came from veteran posters so I got the sarcasm, but for the benefit of those who are less tuned in the '/s' is helpful.

Great HS highlights but FOURTH on the Arizona depth chart.
We need a grad transfer QB, but this doesn't look like 'the guy'.
Colonel Klink knows whom we need.

You forgot the /s
This is the kind of elusive guy with SPEED that we desperately need. JH obviously sees the Need for Speed.

Wikipedia already has him listed as Michigan's defensive backs coach.
From Youngstown (who isn't?) so good Ohio recruiting chops.

Not likely that he beats out Barrett (and Braxton).
