|1 hour 34 min ago||Most of their time before the||
Most of their time before the game will be spent with recruiting coordinators, academic staff, etc. The coaches will probably spend Saturday evening and Sunday with recruits and their families, going to dinner, watching film at the football facilities, etc. Saturday night will be spent with the player hosts. Then usually the recruits fly out on Sunday afternoon/evening.

There will be attritiion. And yes, there are several redshirt juniors who don't play much who could be allowed to move on.
|1 hour 38 min ago||There are guys currently||
There are guys currently committed who will not be a part of the class on National Signing Day.
|1 hour 39 min ago||I think Camp can play nose;||
I think Camp can play nose; he just needs some time to build up his body. We also don't need him to play immediately, since Glasgow, Mone, and Hurst all have at least one more year of eligibility. In fact, we don't lose anyone on the defensive line except Ojemudia and Jenkins-Stone, the weakside ends.
Hurst is playing nose at a shade over 280 lbs. Obviously, that's not the norm, but you don't need to be a mammoth to play that position.

Supposedly, he's visiting Michigan tomorrow instead. If he visits Michigan State, then I think that's a pretty strong clue that he's picking the Spartans. You don't miss a Michigan vs. Ohio State game unless you have no interest in committing to those schools.
|1 hour 44 min ago||I like Corley. I don't think||
I like Corley. I don't think he's as much of a potential game breaker as a couple other guys, but he's a very solid prospect. Personally, I think Michigan needs guys like Pie Young, Velus Jones, etc., who can catch-and-run, return punts, etc. Unfortunately, Pie Young's highlights are filled with him getting penalties for early celebrations, flips into the endzone, etc., so that's a concern.
Anyway, I was asked a similar question on TTB the other day. I had Eddie McDoom at the top of my list. He's a polished kid who also has good long speed and run-after-catch ability. Then I would probably have Corley, Velus Jones, and then Young.
|4 hours 43 min ago||I'm not in love with Jordan||
I'm not in love with Jordan Elliott's game. He doesn't have a variety of moves, and he's pretty lackadaisical. I can understand that sometimes if he's going both ways, but I don't think he plays offense. Add in the fact that he's already committed and decommitted twice, and I'm wary.
On the flip side, Keyshon Camp reminds me of Richard Ash. I don't know if that's good or bad. He didn't do much at Michigan, went on to play well at Western Michigan, and is now latched onto a practice squad in the NFL.
|4 hours 46 min ago||Haha. You said "lost."||
Haha. You said "lost."
|2 days 9 hours ago||Meh. He's not a||
Meh. He's not a high-completion guy, and I think O'Korn is clearly better. I don't think there's much worth in bringing someone in unless they can legitimately compete with the guys who are already here. At best, Towles would probably be the #2 guy.
|2 days 9 hours ago||No Michigan player should be||
No Michigan player should be called for targeting until an opposing player is called for targeting. Rudock has been "targeted" about 5 times this year - at least - and not one call has gone in his favor. So f*** Hackenberg and any other Michigan opponent until then.

It appears that Nauta will probably end up at Georgia unless something happens with Georgia's coaching staff.

Also, he wasn't very good at running the ball.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Shea had 27 career carries||
Shea had 27 career carries for 104 yards and 0 touchdowns. If that's the type of production we could expect from Smith as a FB, that would be disappointing.
|2 days 9 hours ago||He said he will not comment||
He said he will not comment publicly until he submits his NLI and enrolls in classes for spring (a.k.a. winter) semester.
|3 days 6 hours ago||I think the chances are slim||
I think the chances are slim that any true freshman beats out three fifth year seniors or a junior who's been a two-year starter already.
|3 days 7 hours ago||I mean, I didn't listen to||
I mean, I didn't listen to it, but it says that U of M confirmed with Lorenz that they plan on taking 27. So unless you have other evidence, I don't really see how you can "disagree" with something like that.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Zero. Who's going to replace||
Who's going to replace them? Juwann Bushell-Beatty? David Dawson is well behind Kalis/Braden. Kugler might fill Glasgow's spot. Cole might move inside, so Grant Newsome could conceivably fill Glasgow's spot as a starter.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Well, I hope so, but we've||
Well, I hope so, but we've been saying that for a couple years now, and the run blocking still leaves a lot to be desired.
|3 days 7 hours ago||To be fair, they lost to Katy, a||
To be fair, they lost to Katy, a team that is 12-0. They have a 4-star RB, a couple kids committed to Northwestern, a 3-star committed to Houston, and two other 2-star prospects. And that's just in the 2016 class.
|3 days 7 hours ago||With Thomas on defense and||
With Thomas on defense and McFarland on offense, that would be some serious speed added to the team.
|3 days 7 hours ago||I like McDoom. He's a good||
I like McDoom. He's a good all-around receiver, and he's pretty polished. I think he could come in and contribute next year, unlike project guys like Drake Harris, Brian Cole, etc., who need developmental time.
|3 days 7 hours ago||You mean Rashad Weaver? I||
You mean Rashad Weaver? I don't know of a Rashad Williams.
|3 days 7 hours ago||I think Walker is a good||
I think Walker is a good all-around back. I don't think he is Leonard Fournette or Derrick Henry. He's not a physical freak, but he does everything well.
Right now we have guys who are slow, guys who don't have great vision, guys who can't run through tackles, etc. I don't think people will have a lot of complaints about Walker if he comes here, but he won't be a Heisman candidate, either.
|3 days 7 hours ago||I thought you were suggesting||
I thought you were suggesting it for me and my site. My site isn't as lucrative as MGoBlog. But yeah, it's obviously less drastic of an expenditure for MGoBlog.
|3 days 7 hours ago||I really like McFarland as an||
I really like McFarland as an all-purpose back. If all we can get is bruisers in 2016, it would be nice to get him in the 2017 class to offer some speed to the equation. We're missing a gamebreaker RB.
|3 days 8 hours ago||I'm pretty sure Jordan||
I'm pretty sure Jordan Elliott's season is done. Houston Westside went 4-7 this year and their last game was on November 13, which was a 77-0 loss in the playoffs.

$2,000 a year isn't chump change.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Sure they are. We currently||
Sure they are. We currently have commitments from guys like Devin Gil, Josh Metellus, Rashad Weaver, Dytarious Johnson, etc. Does that mean the coaches like Tucky as much as, say, Dytarious Johnson? Maybe not. But take out Tucky, and insert a Rivals 3-star that I didn't list.
The bottom line is that there are guys in Ohio who fit the criteria of a) being able to play at Michigan and b) not being Ohio State locks.
Michigan just isn't pulling them in, offering them, etc. I'm not saying that's bad or good, but it's true.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Not that I know of. It was||
Not that I know of. It was just an unlucky coincidence.
|3 days 10 hours ago||There are some "at Michigan's||
There are some "at Michigan's level" who are not shoo-ins for the Buckeyes. There are 14 Rivals 4-stars in Ohio for 2016, including:
- Boston College-committed LB Ethan Tucky
