We will never forget when he ran down Ringer from behind...

The consensus has him at about 6'3" which is fine for a SAM... and he could still grow some.

Thanks - great new feature for the ultimate Michigan blog.

Odd that Rivals shows his Nebraska interest as "Low", while 24/7 predicts that he will wind up a 'Husker. That will all change when he gets his Michigan offer.....
|1 week 2 days ago||Ferns is an ILB||
Ferns seems much better suited to the inside, and it seems he was recruited to play there. I agree that he has some length and speed so could play SLB, but most scouts see him as a prototypical MLB/WLB... with emphasis on the MIKE.
EDIT- meant this as a reply to EGD who sees Fernes as a SLB.
|1 week 3 days ago||Jimmie Swain||
Thanks for the heads up on Swain... first I'd heard of him. He looks good and with the physical tools to play either inside or outside.
|1 week 3 days ago||I think we take three||
We are definitley after a SAM prospect (Winovich or similar), and likely will take another inside guy now that Ringer is gone. It looked like that might be Watson, but we cooled on him... probably due to a meh camp performance where he measured only 5'10".

You are way too informed to really believe that DG's redshirt was for an "injury".He was slated for a redshirt but then everyone was up in arms that RR had wasted it. Then came his "back injury" after Tate came out of the doghouse... and methinks that 's why it took so long to get the extra eligibility confirmed.
|1 week 4 days ago||" I completely agree with you||
" I completely agree with you about redshirts, for any position. 5th year guys contributing are largely a thing of the past."
Fifth year seniors on this year's two deep:
Toussaint, Gallon, Lewan, Schofield, Q. Washington, Cam Gordon, Thomas Gordon, Brenodon Gibbons.
Throw in Devin and and Jake Ryan next year (from a totally depleted class).
It's still smart to redshirt as many kids as possible.. unless they are the best players at their position... like Peppers in 2014!

Ferns as a SAM? I guess it's possible but he plays like an inside linebacker.

"Ferns to the strong side"?
Seems like we are looking very hard for a SAM to complete this class of linebackers, so Ferns is most likely seen as an inside LB.

That horse deserves to be thrashed. I love and trust these coaches.... but they aren't perfect and they really blew that one. It's even more frustrating when amateurs like us could see it so clearly. Nonetheless, I say again, lest I be misuderstood, I would not trade these coaches for anyone in the country... and they are human.

He meant the defensive backfield when he said "back end" . Avery remains set at nickel corner and possible back-up outside.

Malzone and his family are diehard Michigan fans, He's a lock if (when) offered ... unless he decides to play baseball instead.

I can see Gelen as either a WDE or even a SLB . He won the state wrestling championship at 220 lbs., so I guess it depends on how much bigger he gets. Really like his athleticism.

I always thought he looked about 5'10". Hoping for the best as he gave us so much joy. Really anxious to see his 40 time.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Not 100% Correct||
You are allowed 5 CALENDAR years to complete 4 athletic seasons, and the calendar year begins once one is enrolled.
So by enrolling in Jan. of 2015 he counts like a '15 recruit and can play through the 2019 season (assuming he sits one season out). However, if he enrolls in the Fall of 2014, then his eleigibility clock starts from that calendar year (even if he is not on scholarship and does not practice with the team) so would end after the 2018 season.

Agreed - I'd really like to see us go after Gelen as a WDE.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Third Down Back||
I think he is still seen as the best speed option in the backfield, so if he has learned how to pick up the blitz he will be the heir apparent to V. Smith as third down back. The other option is Drake Johnson who is just as fast but bigger... and had practice buzz at the end of the season. Don't sleep on Johnson as a possibility at regular tailback as well. Norfleet will move back to offense but is too small for the third down blocking so perhaps will be used in the slot and/or jet sweeps.

We also picked up the Glasgow brothers in the last two classes. Graham is a big all state OL who walked on for the '11 class and has created some minor buzz. His brother Ryan walked on last year and is a big DL who also got some mention from the coaches. They were both two stars and not likely to ever start, but they provide depth to our lines which are still thin.
