Short Mike McCray Update

Short Mike McCray Update

Submitted by Steve Lorenz on March 5th, 2012 at 6:35 PM

Just so this didn't get lost in the other thread, but the fact is that Mike has already made his decision, it just hasn't gone public yet. He isn't holding an "announcement" either as he's silently committing to the school he's choosing. No fanfare apparently. He also told me that it should go public "in a day or two". 

Possible commitment coming up soon? via 247sports (update)

Steve Wiltfong, one of the mods over at 247sports.com, just tweeted:

Rivals mentioned that it might not be McCray and suggested that it might be another top recruit we are after, don't want to mention who since the information is paywalled...think it might be time to

 

Update: According to Aqua, it is not Gedeon: 

I just talked with Ben Gedeon, who said he has not committed to Michigan.

Change alert! Gut NOW as of this morning says the number of LBs #Michigan takes has a strong chance of being > 2. Recruiting = #ForeverFluid

 

Looks like things are looking good for Gedeon and McCray. Also, it looks like the questions of will we turn away Levenberry or O'Daniel have been answered as well. The coaches must be telling kids we are taking 3-4 LB's again this year.

Like Michigan, Texas seems to be putting together a monster OL in 2013. The headliner is Jake Raulerson who will probably end up as a five star. In addition they have secured commitments from two other 4 star OL recruits in A'shawn Robinson and Kent Perkins.

They typically benefit from a boatload of instate talent but their OL class may match upto ours if they are planning to get more.

Is Texas also rebuilding their line?

 

Penn State Recruiting

Penn State Recruiting

So several months ago I was one of the people that thought Penn State would have a very difficult time on the recruiting trail for the next couple of years. The verdict is still far from in but they have a great start to the 2013 class if you have not noticed . . .

Christian Hackeburg - ESPNU 150, offers from almost everyone Alabama, Tenn, Florida . . .

Garrett Sickels - ESPNU 150, offers from everyone as well Stanford, Florida, Georgia, ND, OSU, Oklahoma, Alabama, Tenn, and Miami

Ross Douglas - ESPNU 150

The top TE in the country Adam Breneman also ESPNU150 will be announcing this Friday and smart money is on Penn State claiming a big national target. Again, there is a long time left till NSD but this recruiting is better than I think almost anyone gave them a chance to have this early after all the problems they have had. I think this is Great News that they have had this kind of success and hopefully they can continue to do so.
