I don't really care about reported 40 times. They're all lies.

We've been going after a lot of New Jersey players for a while. There's a huge east coast contingent in Ann Arbor, and there are good football players in the state of New Jersey. Plus it's now a part of the Big Ten imprint. J.B. Fitzgerald, Brandon Smith, Jabrill Peppers, Marcus Witherspoon, Anthony Lalota...

It's typically a first-come, first-served situation. But that type of thing won't happen, so I wouldn't worry about it. You might go one or two over, and the last guys to commit just have to go elsewhere.

Names are getting weirder and weirder these days.
In addition to hyphens and apostrophes, now we have parentheses and lower case letters.

Gentry is the better athlete of the two. He's clearly a better runner and has a stronger arm. Whether he's a better "quarterback" or not is up for debate, I guess, and might have to be decided in the next four or five years.

Eh, variety is the spice of life. I don't mind that he has 4 stars in some places. It shows that the recruiting services aren't just waiting for him to get big-time offers before they rank him highly. If every kid with some combination of three Power Five offers were automatically given 4 stars, that would make the ratings pretty lame. I kind of like an occasional 4-star kid without big offers, and I also like it when some kid headed to Florida ends up with 2 stars.

If you're looking for a physical comparison, I'd say probably Thomas Gordon. Short-ish and kind of stocky, decent speed but not explosive. I think where he really separates himself is his understanding of the game. He can disguise coverages, he seems to be the quarterback of the defense, gets people lined up correctly, sniffs out plays, etc. He also does a good job of squaring up to ball carriers so he doesn't get juked, which is something that Dior Johnson struggles with.

It's the same article. Bleacher Report is CNN's sports site.

|9 hours 43 min ago||Johnson is one of those guys||
Johnson is one of those guys who I think was a bit of a late bloomer. Based on his junior film, I don't think he was worth an offer. Based on his senior film, I think he could play at the Michigan level. But Michigan got an early commitment from Tyree Kinnel, and neither Hoke nor Harbaugh have really been pursuing other safety prospects, so they must feel satisfied with their safety situation. If Michigan were still looking for a safety, I woudn't be surprised if Johnson got an offer.
He's a big kid who runs well. Decent hitter, good hands. I think there's a lot of technique stuff to work on (reading route combinations, tackling, etc.), and he doesn't have the greatest instincts.
|9 hours 53 min ago||He only has a few offers and||
He only has a few offers and just picked up the offers from Iowa and Indiana (his best ones) in the past week or so. He's about 6'2", 190 lbs., which is obviously small for a Big Ten linebacker. I trust that Iowa will do something with him because that's what they do (beef up kids, coach them up well, etc.).
|11 hours 1 min ago||Yeah...I don't really||
Yeah...I don't really consider Michigan as actually recruiting someone unless they're offered a scholarship. You can use official visits on preferred walk-ons.
|11 hours 10 min ago||I was just about to write||
I was just about to write something similar. Having just watched his highights, I think the biggest thing is his slow release. Linebackers and defensive backs are going to jump a lot of his throws because it takes so long to get rid of the ball, and defensive linemen will have a chance to get their hands up and bat down passes. Plus the arm strength doesn't make up for the long release.
That being said, I feel like I've seen worse quarterbacks playing for Eastern Michigan and the like. It does seem that somebody would have taken a shot at him, especially since he does run a fairly complex spread offense that indicates he could transition well into a program like Miami-OH, Rice, etc.

What unranked kids are being recruited by Harbaugh?

I skimmed the article, but I believe he had either 49 touchdowns or 59 touchdowns last year. So he must have looked pretty good as a junior, too. I haven't watched video of him yet, but it's interesting nonetheless. Obviously, we were all discussing recently how poor the New Mexico talent level is.
|12 hours 20 min ago||Whoever Michigan gets, it||
Whoever Michigan gets, it would be nice if they could contribute in 2015. Michigan needs some speed, and I don't know if anyone on the roster is ready to be that guy. I like(d) Drake Harris, but he's been injured for two consecutive years. I think Jefferson is better right now, a little bigger, a better route runner, etc.
Like I said, I would be happy with either one. It just might take a little longer to get a return on Burnett.
|13 hours 42 min ago||Michigan isn't really going||
Michigan isn't really going after that many receivers right now. There are only three that the new staff has really pursued. I guess I'd order them like this:
1. Van Jefferson

Van's dad is a former NFL player and a current NFL coach. Unless he's really stingy or stupid with his money, Van shouldn't be as needy as some other prospects.

I would guess Michigan has had over 10, but yes, surely Florida has had many, many more.

I like Van Jefferson better, but I like Burnett, too. I would be satisfied if Michigan could pull either.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Right now is crunch time.||
Right now is crunch time. Hoke started going after small-school guys or guys committed to programs who were down on their luck. Harbaugh is still swinging for the fences a little bit, trying to steal people from Arizona, Ole Miss, etc. He's not going up against Alabama/Ohio State/Oregon, but the next tier down. Hoke stole from Purdue, Indiana, the MAC, etc.
