FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.

He was supposed to be invited but didn't receive his invitation. He was invited late, but apparently he was still a little annoyed by the miscommunication.

RoJo and Perry didn't think CA was a long way from Michigan? Are you sure about that?

Bleacher Report sucks. They have always stirred up controversy for clicks, which is okay sometimes if you mix it in with actual news. ESPN does this sometimes, too, but I usually just ignore the pot stirrers there.

I doubt Helmholdt makes $80,000. There's not a whole lot of money in the business, from what I gather. It's a labor of love.

Yeah, but you're punishing yourself by eating Little Caesar's. They have the worst chain-restaurant pizza in the land. It tastes like a brand new pair of Asics slathered with Campbell's tomato soup and then whatever came up when Paris Hilton put her finger down her throat.

Fair enough. Then there are 120+ other teams out there who "couldn't fill their class" because Malik McDowell and Da'Shawn Hand did not commit to them, either.
As I mentioned above, taking McDowell and/or Hand would require keeping Kerridge, R. Glasgow, etc. off of scholarship. Perhaps those were the guys they deemed worth it. "Well, if we can get McDowell, then __________ will just have to remain a walk-on. That sucks for him, but we have to do what's best for the program."
When Ty Isaac transferred to Michigan, that bumped someone off of a scholarship. One of the nation's top running backs is worth reverting a backup offensive guard to walk-on status. Maybe Montae Nicholson (247 Composite #18 safety, #201 overall) isn't.

I follow The D Zone on Twitter, too. It's kind of a mess, but they (I'm sure it's multiple people) do have their finger on the pulse of what's going on around the state.

You're really reaching in this argument.
|1 week 3 days ago||What do you mean by "they||
What do you mean by "they couldn't fill the last class"? Every school gets 85 scholarships, and Michigan has 82 accounted for, not including guys who played/have played a lot such as Joey Burzynski, Joe Kerridge, and Ryan Glasgow, who all came to Michigan as walk-ons. Perhaps the coaches wanted to give those three guys scholarships. Perhaps the coaches were satisfied with the players they had. Do you REALLY not think that the coaches could have pulled in another recruit if they had chosen to do so? Usually, there are some end-of-the-cycle offers to fill spots (such as Dennis Norfleet) and poach players, but Michigan didn't do anything like that this year except sending out feeler offers to a couple running backs like Minnesotan Jeff Jones (who didn't qualify).
|1 week 4 days ago||Personally, I don't think||
Personally, I don't think he's a defensive end at the next level. He's a defensive tackle or an offensive lineman. Obviously, the coaches aren't really pushing for defensive tackles. As far as offensive line goes, he does not seem to be very interested in playing there and prefers defense. So I don't really think he's a great fit for Michigan since a) he doesn't play a defensive position they want and b) he might be standoff-ish about playing OL.
