Maybe the next time he gets caught off guard, I'll bump this thread.
|16 hours 49 min ago||I believe so, yes. I've heard||
I believe so, yes. I've heard they're looking to get three wide receivers. Those two and Chris Evans would be a nice trio.
|16 hours 51 min ago||I've given up already because||
I've given up already because we didn't get Equanimeous St. Brown. The downward spiral has begun.

My arms are full - it was 2-for-1 day at Dunkin Donuts. You're on your own.

That's true, but it doesn't really change what I said.
|19 hours 46 min ago||This is kind of a Captain||
This is kind of a Captain Obvious statement, but some of the guys currently committed to Michigan will not be committed to Michigan by February.
|19 hours 48 min ago||He's a safety from Elk Grove||
He's a safety from Elk Grove (CA) Franklin.
|19 hours 49 min ago||Chris Daniels, who is||
Chris Daniels, who is originally from Michigan, is also considering us.
I think Rashad Weaver could very well end up playing defensive tackle. Physically, he looks a lot like Chris Wormley to me (who's now about 6'4", 300 lbs. IIRC).
|19 hours 50 min ago||The timing would also be a||
The timing would also be a bit strange if Hawkins announced for South Carolina right now.
|19 hours 53 min ago||I say this with all due||
I say this with all due respect because Brandon seems like a good guy (and so did Tom Van Haaren, while a couple other guys who cover recruiting are dillweeds):
I just don't think Brandon has great information and/or reaches useful conclusions based on the information he has. Of all the guys I've encountered on Rivals, 247, Scout, and ESPN, he seems to be the least reliable.

Eh, only dweebs are paying a ton of attention to 2017 recruiting right now. I just happen to belong to that category.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Kelly-Powell outright named||
Kelly-Powell outright named Michigan his leader.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Jim Harbaugh is the only||
Jim Harbaugh is the only coach/player I follow on Twitter, and this is why. He's an odd duck, but he's our odd duck.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Yeah, but USC got him in a||
Yeah, but USC got him in a sign-and-trade deal for Donovan Warren.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Yep, forgot about him.||
Yep, forgot about him.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Ronald Johnson was the #8||
Ronald Johnson was the #8 overall player in 2007. And he was the #1 receiver to Rivals.
|1 day 19 hours ago||I don't think it's that||
I don't think it's that noteworthy. 300 divided by 50 is 6. Granted, there are states that don't produce a ton of talent (Montana, North Dakota, Maine, etc.), but there are also states that produce lots of top-flight kids (Florida, Texas, California, Alabama, etc.). So if Michigan has 7 kids on the list, that's right about where it should be.
|1 day 19 hours ago||I guess I don't really||
I guess I don't really understand the question. It all depends on what you mean by success. I mean, I would be glad to have them all in the 2017 class. I don't really think any of them are "must haves" because generally I don't think one player makes or breaks a program. Harbaugh is showing in the 2016 class that he can go find players from all over the country.
|1 day 20 hours ago||We're out front for||
We're out front for Stritzinger (and Kelly-Powell). Hamler is probably an MSU lean, too. Otherwise, I think you're pretty accurate.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Yes.||
|1 day 21 hours ago||You can. There's no law||
You can. There's no law against bad jokes.
|2 days 14 hours ago||I have not heard much about||
I have not heard much about Samuelson, but what I have SEEN of Samuelson is not promising.
|3 days 2 hours ago||His Hudl page lists him at||
His Hudl page lists him at 6'4", 222 lbs.
Khalid Hill is 6'2", 252 lbs. after 2+ years on campus.
|3 days 2 hours ago||If it were clear, there||
If it were clear, there wouldn't be so much dissension. He's not that great - he doesn't break as many tackles as he needs to, and he's slow. That still might be enough to get him on the field, but he's a pretty uninspiring "#1 back" if he indeed wins the job.
|3 days 2 hours ago||True. And I don't necessarily||
True. And I don't necessarily agree with it. He just seems like a Harbaugh back.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Well, he's lower rated than||
Well, he's lower rated than everyone except perhaps Drake Johnson, so that's at least some evidence.
|4 days 17 hours ago||Probably because we have two||
Probably because we have two Rivals 5-star backs, two other guys with significant experience (Drake Johnson, De'Veon Smith), and a short-yardage guy that Harbaugh seems to like (Shallman).
|4 days 17 hours ago||No, not really. But I think||
No, not really. But I think he's a better blocking TE than receiving TE.
