With a recruit it is easy for every fan to have an opinion and the tidal wave begins. When I see an article like this I usually have very little to add. A casual fan can't talk to the same extent about the finer points of football execution. I love these types of articles, but I think there are far fewer people on the site that can contribute to a conversation about the breakdown of a play due to less knowledge about the subject.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Finally||
Looks like JH finally learned to pick up the damn phone.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Nice!||
Let's hope this starts a shift in recruiting momentum. Very happy for JB. He is such a great coach I can't wait to see him load up on top level talent.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Credibility with who?||
Certainly not with recruits and their families. Maybe he losses credibility with fans that want to only be notified when a blue chip recruit is landed, but other than than I see NO downside to a coach getting excited about a new player pledging to Michigan. The downside only seems to be with a group that could probably use a reality check anyway.

Iman: I am a little worried about having to wait to see the field. You already have Peppers and Lewis at CB for a couple of years.
JH: Hey Pep, you want to move to Safety?
JH: If you earn a starting CB spot, you can start from day 1. Let's go try on that #2 jersey and snap a few pics with Chuck.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Same thought||
It sure sounded like he meant Peppers would be supporting him as a safety. It could obviously mean he is just a player that would provide support, or backing, but my first thought was that Peppers is talking to him as if he would be in the role of a safety for Michigan next year.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Yesterday alone.||
They landed 3 top 25 players yesterday. OSU will continue to get quality players and it their recruiting will improve.
I agree that until Michigan can start beating OSU it will continue to be an uphill battle for recruits.

I thought the same thing when I saw that play.

"Just don't ask Richard what he thinks of me now."
|2 years 26 weeks ago||1 less 2014 player||
It comes from not filling the spot BP will now take in the 2014 class with another player. Yes, BP will count against the 85 total, but they will now take 1 less 2014 kid and that frees up another spot for a 2015 kid.

|2 years 33 weeks ago||Runs.||
We need some. We have not scored in 10 innings. Come on boys!
|2 years 35 weeks ago||What a hit.||
He flipped that kid from upright to upside-down while driving him to the ground. JP might be good.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Like...||
|2 years 43 weeks ago||What?||
How are you possibly unbuckled?
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Friends||
I am pretty sure that I have read that they are freinds.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Needs some Denard||
TD against OSU comes to mind. He also had a run earlier in the season where he made a cut that is just not seen to often on the football field. Those would have fit in nicely.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||I agree.||
Ferns and Mone have both been on board for a long time. Ferns is all over social media and just attended a camp. Mone is out of site and out of mind. I think he could be the best interior DL player Michigan has had commit since Hoke came on board.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||But, but, but....||
Combine that statement with his comments about answering the phone when he wants to talk to someone and not answering when he does not want to talk to someone! Sound like he is dropping VT.
|3 years 1 week ago||Hoke?||
Something tells me with Mattison and others on staff it will get handled before it gets to Hoke.
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Wow!||
What a great game. NEXT!
|3 years 4 weeks ago||247||
I know that 247 had some VIP info on Garrett today. The tweet said it was new positive news for Michigan.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Next year.||
We only took 2 last year and next year is supposed to be a small class also. If we only take 2 this year will we even have space to grab more than 2 next year?
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Stud LB||
That is kind of what we do now right? It is fantastic to get in on this kid early, and getting him on campus once already is great. I am glad to see that Manning is building relationships and getting kids on campus. Not hard to believe from a guy with his personality.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Great.||
Happy to see another Michigan kid in the fold. His tape looks legit.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||All Good.||
He just committed.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Believe it.||
Just like the Lions will get the top player on their board at #5 tonight.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Hand is from Virginia||
Most experts have Hand with a top 2 of VT and Michigan. Peppers has a top 2 of Stanford and Michigan.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Grey Shirt||
He accepted a grey shirt scholarship so he will not count against our scholarship number until next year. That could be why he is listed on some sites and not on others.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Without reading the article...||
I would think every class wants to have their class be ranked #1. I will assume that this article was more about how they want to get the best group of guys possible together so that they can reach maximum success together. With such a small class this year I am not too worried about how the team ranks, but would love to see Michigan land a few real difference makers at possitions of need. Harris could be one of those. Hand and Peppers could too. Things are headed in the right direction and it is important for that to continue until the success on the field starts showing up.
Slight highjack: Are we kidding ourselves with Hand? 18 of 20 staff at 247 predict Hand to VT. That is a pretty high percentage for a player we are feeling like we have a legit shot at.
