Yes, he is a guard, but Michigan hasn't stopped recruiting him despite only taking 3 OL prospects. Since they always shut positions down when they reach their target number, they must be willing to take him.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Jamarco Jones (presumed OSU||
Jamarco Jones (presumed OSU lean) and Roderick Johnson are probably the next two up. After that, not much else activity right now.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Yes, I could absolutely see||
Yes, I could absolutely see that as well. The good news is, if Taylor holds off Peppers, we know that he earned the spot instead of them playing favorites with an upperclassman. It's a win either way when you have two talented players competing.

Your 2014 starting secondary could be FS Jarrod Wilson, SS Dymonte Thomas, FC Blake Countess, and BC Jabrill Peppers.
In the words of Bacari: HALOL

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.
|5 days 5 min ago||He was a great player and I||
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".

Am I the only one that's afraid we just landed Will Gholston Jr?
Obviously everyone you land isn't going to be a superstar, but I'm afraid the hype might exceed the talent here.
And before you neg me, that's just like my opinion, man.
|1 week 2 days ago||Well yes, they may be on the||
Well yes, they may be on the decline now as Beamer gets older, but the series doesn't start for another 7 years. Whose to say they don't have Foster or an entirely different coach who has them highly competitive and revitalized?
Waaaayyyy too early to speculate as to the quality of the game at this point.
|1 week 2 days ago||DC Alums||
Huge alumni base out here as well. I know a ton of alumni are going to be making the trip for this one so there should be a very strong Michigan presence as well. Should be fantastic.

This is like Madagascar 3, but WAY WAY SADDER AND MORE TRAGIC
|1 week 4 days ago||Certainly possible.||
Certainly possible. Especially if he visits for Under the Lights Part Deux this fall.
|1 week 4 days ago||Also...||
He attends St. Ed's in Cleveland, the same school as Kyle Kalis.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||So Braxton Miller and Devin||
So Braxton Miller and Devin Gardner are both putting in work with Whitfield, huh?
When Big Ten defensive backs go to sleep tonight they better say a little prayer of thanks for Andrew Maxwell so that they can still get a few interceptions.
And yes, he's worked with a laundry list of top QBs the past few years like Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, RGII, Johnny Manziel, Roethlisberger. The guy knows his stuff:

I may be in the minority, but I read pretty much every post on EDSBS so I enjoy posts like this immensly.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Not true, my job as||
Not true, my job as "professional MGoBlog reader" is paying excellent dividends.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I'm still relatively young so||
I'm still relatively young so there are a bunch of graduating seniors posting pictures of themselves day drinking outside today.
And I hate them so, so hard.

*Everyone backs out of the Kickstarter with under an hour to go*
*Ashton Kutcher shows up at Brian's house, "You've officially been Kickstarter punked!"*
|2 weeks 5 days ago||OSU people are speculating||
OSU people are speculating that Hubbard isn't a linebacker. They were looking to bring in 3 and have told kids they're still looking for 2, thus Hubbard is either a DE or an H-Back/TE.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||You're missing the real||
You're missing the real issue. The real question about Big Ten expansion is: will Rutgers come into Michigan and steal the second-tier kids from MSU?!
|2 weeks 5 days ago||In case you didn't know, I||
In case you didn't know, I don't coach for Michigan, but...
I would love to see them pass on a running back this year and use that offer for a fourth WR or a third LB and then in 2015 go all out on Mikey Webber and Damien Harris in 2015.
It's a win/win for all parties really.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I like Ways better than||
I like Ways better than everyone but Da'Mario from the last class. If he develops well there's no reason he can't be very, very good.

Quite honestly, if you get rid of that little kid Cubs fan in front, Ann Arbor becomes perfect.

I can't read a single post of yours in a normal voice. Damnit Taco.

While Notre Dame was busy working out Ways, we stole Ian Bunting from them.
Pretty sneaky, Michigan staff!

I was dragging my feet but I just put in an order for both. Would love to see a printed copy of the basketball/hockey book in my mailbox come fall.

A phone call, a text message, an email, a carrier pigeon.
If you think about it, he can commit in Moe Ways than one...
|4 weeks 2 days ago||You don't come across as a||
You don't come across as a jerk at all, I think it's reasonable assumption that they could lead. I just know that a lot of the Michigan writers think that Michigan very well could, and I do tend to agree with them.
I'm a firm believer in reading into the quotes that players give after a visit. They all say positive things because most of the schools have their act together, but you can tell based on the verbs and adjectives they use whether or not they truly loved it. I just think he gives off better vibes about Michigan than about VT.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||It's Funny||
Because absolutely every Michigan writer seems to think that Michigan leads for Da'Shawn Hand, but they're all terrified to say it and be wrong, so most of them put down Virginia Tech leads.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I agree that I'm not all that||
I agree that I'm not all that concerned about rhe backup WILL. If Ross were to go down they would move Morgan back over to the WILL and put Bolden in the middle.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I agree that 247 really seems||
I agree that 247 really seems to be doing a great job as well. I have ESPN Insider because I think Tom is on his game and clearly a great guy, but I don't think I would ever pay for Rivals or Scout and I'm seriously considering it for 247.
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.
