Another SAM type they're looking at is Jimmy Swain (the fourth!) out of Missouri. Have you had a chance to watch his highlights as well? And if so, who do you like better? Swain night be a slightly better athlete and he's got about 10 pounds on Winovich right now. I think to a certain degree you're obviously hoping that they can add 20-30 pounds and maintain that athleticism so neither one is any guarantee, but both seem like they could be fairly good if they develop correctly.

He was a great player and I know reporters love questions about how X player might have been overshadowed or Y player might be underrated because he had a superstar teammate, but there's just no way that Timmy didn't benefit tremendously from being on the same team as Trey Burke. He's a great shooter, but if he was the focal point of the offense, he would have been asked to put it on the floor a lot more often and he would have struggled to do so.
I think NBA scouts probably have an excellent beat on his skillset and he'll have a productive career, but not everyone has to be "underrated", some guys can just be "rated".

Rivals may have the best rankings, but in terms of subscribing, it's hard to see what value they add that other sites can't cover. 247 does a good job facilitating discussion, and they're not afraid to say where they think a school is actually at with a prospect, which is ultimately what people want.

I think you're going to see next season unfold a lot like OSU's season did this year.

As a follow-up, perhaps you could look at the assist rates and transition baskets when McGary and Morgan are on the floor to better understand the offensive efficiency numbers?

I take issue with saying Michigan's defense isn't good. They're ranked 39th on KenPom. They're not "great" or "suffocating", but they are definitely good.
In fact, I think in many ways their defense is an expression of Beilein's offensive philisophy, just on the other end of the floor. They're not going to be really aggressive and try to disrupt the other team's flow, but take what the offense gives them with opportunistic blocks and steals and just constantly getting their hands in your face to contest your shot. But there are 347 Division I teams, if you're ranked 39th I would say you have a good defense.

I find myself thinking the same things, but look at this year. The message coming in was, "Martin and RVB are going to be awfully hard to replace", but the remaining starters got coached up and took either small (Thomas Gordon, Demens) or large (Ryan, Morgan, Roh, and Washington) steps forward, and the defense as a whole didn't suffer for it. I think as the system becomes even more engrained, the leaps forward might not happen in place of steady improvement, but with these coaches and the players they're bringing in, it's hard to imagine this defense being even average over the next several years.

But this relies upon some sort of warped assumption that there's just this switch they haven't been flipping that will somehow turn on against a highly motivated Michigan team with a singular focus on a Big Ten championship. You had 3 points at the half against Eastern Michigan! Adjust your expectations already.

In all seriousness though, 2014 does look like a pretty down year for Michigan talent, especially from a depth perspective. The top end talent is there no doubt (Harris, Webb, McDowell) but there doesn't seem to be a ton behind that. I think Michigan will land 3-5 Michigan prospects this year and in general will give out a lot fewer offers than the past couple of years. I think they've got all of their offensive linemen from their offers so far except they might offer Kyle Trout. They might get up to 100, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them stay under the triple digits.

Ya, he's been interesting already.

Then, the Michigan coaches called him and probably hinted that if he visited they would offer and he really should come check it out, so he visited and got the offer before the game. Then he spent all Sunday hanging out with LTT and he's been enamored with Michigan ever since and says he'll be back for the State game this weekend.

Yes, but as you're seeing with MSU this year, if you want to sustain success year after year, you do need to have some elite recruits.

Personally, I would like to see them go after a committed prospect before they offer Finely.

|31 weeks 1 day ago||I disagree, it's pretty||
I disagree, it's pretty obvious that if Dawson would have visited Florida he would have committed to them as well. It's just the timing is different (and proper) now. The coaches just believe in the word commitment. If you're visiting somewhere else, you're not committed.

Ya, obviously Strobel will put on the weight long term and I think that SDE is definitely his position, I just don't know if he can put it on for next year. And good point about Clark as well, he is walking a very thin line at this point.
For me Beyer just came to mind because I feel the same way about him as I did about Roh at WDE. He's not a big liability or anything, but he's not going to get to the quarterback enough for the position and that's why a switch seemed like it could put him in a better position to succeed.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||I didn't forget about him,||
I didn't forget about him, I've just never been all that impressed with him as he doesn't seem to do the little .5 point things Brian mentions that have made RVB and Roh successful. I think you would be more likely to see Heitzman there than Black. And Beyer is the same weight as Strobel right now (252), so if one can't put on the weight for the position then the other can't either.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Haha, well that is just damn uncanny.||

I was looking forward to this all week, just to see how Jake Ryan would grade out. Count me not disappointed in the slightest. Mini-Clay Matthews indeed.
I've also been thinking about this for awhile and my not so bold prediction is that Brennen Beyer makes the same move this offseason that Craig Roh did last offseason and your UFR's next year feature Beyer as "mini-Roh" or "mini-RVB" as well. He's not much of a pass rusher at all, and it's obvious at this point that Ojemudia is at least coming along. With Frank Clark at WDE as well, the position is a bit crowded. Better a junior Beyer with game experience than a walk-on like Brink or a redshirt freshman like Strobel. Anyone else see this forthcoming?

This is something I've been wondering for a little while so I'm glad this thread was posted as it seems like the perfect place to ask. This may seem obvious to some, but has Washington been playing the 3-Tech then? And does this mean there's a very good chance PeeWee and Washington are the two war daddies in the middle next year i.e. can they get both on the field at the same time or are they too similar of players?

1. LSU: The defensive line is absolutely filthy and so is the stable of running backs they can roll out. They're going to wear teams out over 60 minutes, and they get Alabama at home. I just don't see USC running the table, especially when they'll probably have to play Oregon twice.
2. Florida State: They play in a weaker conference and EJ Manuel should be a lot better this year, plus they have a lot of talent on defense.
3. Michigan State: They just have so much proven talent on defense, and Leveon Bell should be very, very good as well. I hate myself for picking them, but unless some serious injuries occur I don't see them having a less than top 10 type year.
4. Ohio State: Also a talented defense and they'll get a bump from a weak schedule. I don't see them as suffering from any motivation problems either. They're not going to win everything or something stupid like that, I just think they'll outperform their spot.
5. Kansas State: Bill Snyder is a wizard. That is all.
6. Utah: They're going to surprise a lot of people this year. I see them as a Top 15 type team.

I would agree with that. He took over the event in 2011 and in the past two years it certainly seems like he's been using it to hype up some under the radar prospects and get them exposure as shown by a UCF commit "winning" it this year.
You didn't really voice your opinion on whether or not you think that's ok, but I really don't have an issue with it. Shane is good. Many, many people seem to know that he is very good and he will have his college paid for 4-5 years as a result of being good. Being named one of the best 11 QB's at an almost-but-not-really football competition isn't going to change that, but if someone gets more exposure and a scholarship offer because Dilfer hypes them a bit more than they should be, the benefit from that is a lot higher than an ego boost for someone like Shane.
Zeke Pike was named an Elite 11 QB and he's going to be a tight end(!!!) at Louisville(!!!), which isn't even the school he was planning on attending less than a month ago. There's no benefit to being an Elite 11 QB when your goals are "Be a really good QB at real football" and "make the league". None.
|39 weeks 22 hours ago||Why?||
Why? Because in an event where they play shadow football where the defense knows it's pass 100% of the time, there's no pass rush, and each QB only throws 30 balls in a few days he didn't think Morris was one of the best 11 QB's?
Blame the event itself and the hype it receives, not Trent Dilfer.

I get their excitement as he should be very, very good, but I just don't understand why they were so excited about his freshman year. Yes, he made tackles. He is a linebacker after all, but he was responsible for a lot of yards.

Ya, but I guess my point is, if you're measuring welfare for everyone together, if you're living in Detroit and the cost of living is low but you're unemployed, well then you're not really doing well at all then. So is it better to have a 90% chance at an effective income of $57,000 or whatever or a 96.5% chance at an effective income of $52,000? It's all situational really.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||Changing topics completely||
Changing topics completely from comments thus far, that effective income study is definitely interesting, but I would like to see them take it a step further. They're numbers are based on "pay per job", which is great and all for people who actually have a job, but the unemployment rate is so high in Detroit that I think it would negate a lot of the benefits. For example, I live in Arlington County just outside of DC and although everything is pretty pricey, the unemployment rate is only 3.5%. So maybe a per capita measurement would be a better fit?

Most of the time Webb just turns to his Scout colleagues to get a fluff scouting report and has one or two quotes from the prospect where they give generic answers about what they're looking for in a school, but this really went in-depth into his specific situation. It's very cool to see recruiting from an intimate perspective like that and get taken through what a recruiting visit can be like step by step. These coaches just seem so damn good at selling Michigan to these prospects, and it's exciting to see what that entails.

Cool to see them with some athletes recruited by Michigan though, I agree about that.

"A book of words?! We don't understand! Our season preview was specifically catered towards the Ohio State fanbase: 50 pages of Urban Meyer making flirty eyes toward the "reader" with a back page of stickers that they can use to decorate the book."
|48 weeks 20 hours ago||If you go back and read||
If you go back and read Brian's recruiting post for Jake Ryan he was actually pretty excited about his highlight film and you can see why. He sheds blocks with ease and really thumps some guys. And Brian's excitement for Morgan was also "irrationally high" because he could lay some serious wood. You don't see that with Ringer's film. He's pretty obviously an FBS talent, but he doesn't wow you with any one part of his game. He can get caught up in the wash, his instincts are just about average, and he doesn't have the athleticism to make up for it.
I got my panties in a bunch when his excitement level for James Ross was only moderate plus, but I think this one is just right. He's going to be fighting with a returning starter, 2 touted players in the same class, and a fairly touted one the class below him for 2 WILL and MIKE spots. Seems tough.
|48 weeks 3 days ago||If everyone's highlights||
If everyone's highlights represent their best plays (and why wouldn't they, really), doesn't comparing highlight tapes allow you to evaluate prospects on an apples to apples basis?

A VERY solid point, although whether that pipeline would be successful is another question. I still think that as long as Wilcher is there, Michigan has their pick.

Ya, I had heard it was a track and field thing as well. I know football takes up a lot of your time, but wouldn't a full ride scholarship still be worthwhile, and couldn't he pull off both? It's certainly an interesting situation. If they don't get Finley they're going to be pretty desperate for OL this year since their only one just decommitted. They're going to have to start poaching whoever they think are the best sleeper options from lower tier B1G programs and MAC programs.
|48 weeks 3 days ago||Interesting that Finley is||
Interesting that Finley is blowing up like he is, good for him. Watching his film he certainly has the frame and athleticism to turn into a very functional big ten lineman. However, I also think the explosion of offers has to do with the pace at which offensive linemen, especially the midwest ones, are flying off the shelves. The best linemen left in the midwest are Riley Norman at #25 and he apparently might not even play football, and then you have Lovell Peterson and Kyle Meadows out of Ohio, but the OSU staff has seen both of them in-person and chose to offer Finley instead.
Maybe some other years he would have ended up with an offer, but with the relationship Michigan has with Cass Tech you have to figure they're more happy with who they have then they would be with him. But here's hoping he turns into a good lineman. At Illinois or Iowa (if they offer) preferrably.

While I would agree with you that the scouting sites sometimes overhype prematurely developed man-children (I personally think RB Green is the perfect example of it this year), I don't think that offer lists are necessarily more revealing to a prospect's potential than their physical attributes. There have been plenty of busts with offers from nearly everyone as well if you're going to look at it on an anecdotal basis. I think it's about finding a good fit for your offense or defense, your coaches goals and personalities, and your program, and hoping they have the drive and intelligence to succeed. There are so many factors and that's why things become murky.
