MGoBlog is superior in some ways, but not all.
There's more information disseminated over there than makes its way here. MGoBlog is fine for casual fans, and I'm not suggesting that more people should pay for it. But for those of us who spend a lot of (a.k.a. too much) time on football/recruiting, it's not a bad deal to pay for it. There are way more expensive hobbies that people could have instead of $10/month for this stuff.

I don't think we'll know that at least for a few days. I have not heard of anyone we're recruiting who will last past NSD.

"Smith may have more long speed (even that is pretty debatable) bur he has no burst at all."
Smith has zero long speed. He is one of the slowest backs I've seen at Michigan. This is not to say that he doesn't have some value (he's a tough short-yardage back), but the guy is slow. I've been saying it since he was in high school, and this past season should have made it clear to everyone.
Also, if you like high school 40 times (hint: you probably shouldn't) Green was supposedly pretty fast.

Dior Mathis has had a decent career at Oregon, too.
|4 hours 35 min ago||Nope.||
|6 hours 37 min ago||I never said any of them have||
I never said any of them have been studs, but that's a far cry from being "shit."
I would say Jourdan Lewis, Thomas Gordon, and William Campbell have all been pretty solid. Lewis has a chance to be very good. There are some more guys going back lots of years, and there are some guys currently on the roster who haven't reached their upperclassman years (Dawson, Hill, etc.) out of Cass Tech.

First of all, you're wrong.
Second of all, you're being overly harsh.

It wasn't that funny.

A 5'11", 220 lb. defensive end not known for his speed is probably not ideal...

He's blitzing on a lot of them. Not all of them. Yes, you can make up for being a little slower if you are quick at reading the play, but I just don't think it's ideal in today's game. There are too many spread teams who put their guys in space, and the slow defenders can't keep up.

If he does, it hasn't been reported.

He could be. He played it in high school, and Michigan missed out on Reagan Williams.

Yeah, I like Ojemudia better, too, although he's farther away from playing size than Oliver. Ojemudia is about 6'2", 190.
|10 hours 12 min ago||I think Cass Tech is sending||
I think Cass Tech is sending him on blitz after blitz. I wouldn't take too much away from him attacking the line of scrimmage like he does, other than the fact that he's not tentative when it comes to contact.

AFAIK, there are four - Adams, Burnett, Jefferson, and Oliver.
|10 hours 13 min ago||He's short, yes.||
He's short, yes.
|10 hours 15 min ago||I don't have any info from||
I don't have any info from Ferns's end, but I think there were two factors that played into his situation. First is that Michigan wasn't recruiting his younger brother. Second is that Michael was buried on the depth chart/low man on the totem pole, behind the other three freshman linebackers.
|10 hours 18 min ago||Not sure if he's at 0%, but||
Not sure if he's at 0%, but they're different kinds of players, anyway. Oliver is an inside linebacker all the way, whereas Roquan Smith is a weakside/outside type of guy.

I don't think "dearth" is the word you wanted.

I think he's slow but a heavy hitter. I'm not super enthused about the prospects of getting a guy like him, but I also don't like the idea of banking scholarships.

I'm sure Singletary (and other coaches) are aware of all the significant prospects within the state.

Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.

You mean when he could recruit full-time while the actual coaching staff was coaching the team? Imagine that...
|11 hours 40 min ago||I'm sorry, but I REALLY don't||
I'm sorry, but I REALLY don't think you commit four years of a football scholarship to a kid like Markel Bush. If he's worth an offer, then there are a million kids out there worth offers. I've watched his highlight film, and I don't think he would ever step on the field. He's not quick, he's not fast, he's not overly physical, he doesn't have great hips... He's just a guy.

Here are some names I threw out on TTB a few days ago:

That's fine. It doesn't show on the football field, in my opinion.
|12 hours 2 min ago||I think a lot of us felt the||
I think a lot of us felt the same way about Gedeon. He would disappear for stretches of the game/season for no apparent reason. I'll grant that he was playing behind a pretty good LB in the form of Jake Ryan, but there should have been some sort of three-man rotation with Ryan, Bolden, and Gedeon each getting time.

Comming? Is that slang for "communicating?"

I would say Wile was also an impact late addition. Not a great kicker/punter, but he was a starter in all three phases of the kicking game. Heitzman also got a fair amount of playing time, although he too wasn't great. So that' 4/10 guys who played a fair amount. Only 6/10 Rodriguez recruits were in the same boat.

So, in other words, the hit rate was pretty average.
