2012 DT: Ondre Pipkins

well the epic 2012 recruit name game continues as this DT from Kansas City, Missouri is listing Michigan as one of his top schools.

Couldn't find any videos on youtube, but rivals shows one on his profile here:

http://rivals.yahoo.com/footballrecruiting/football/recruiting/player-Ondre-Pipkins-115144

lists offers from Kansas State and Missouri... and at 6'3 325 he could definitely fill the kind of spaceeater we need at DT.

not sure about our recruiting in Kansas though.

Coach Wilcher called Cass Tech LB Royce Jenkins-Stone and told him he has a Michigan offer. "I'll go up there (to Michigan) for a visit. I've been up there so many times, but I'm going to get as many offers as I can. I'll probably make my decision either the middle of the season or at the end," Royce said. 

His teammate DB Terry Richardson was just offered by Michigan as well.

Wisconsin LB Vince Biegel (6'3", 210 lbs) was offered by Michigan yesterday, according to his head coach Tony Bioli. "Vince called Michigan yesterday and talked to Greg Mattison and then Brady Hoke, and they gave him a verbal offer. I think that's probably a big school in his book," said Coach Bioli.

Biegel now has 8 or 9 offers including BYU, Wisconsin, MSU, and Minnesota. There are some interesting factors with Vince's recruitment, and relationships to each school. "BYU is where his dad played, Wisconsin is obviously instate, and Greg Mattison has some contacts here in the Rapids area. I believe Mattison might have recruited Vince's dad back in the 80's as well. We're familiar with his name here, and he has some friends in the area," Bioli said.

Vince was a Baltimore Ravens fan when Mattison was the defensive coordinator, which is another bonus for Michigan. Biegel doesn't want his recruitment to play out too long according to his coach. 

Biegel is scheduled to go to Wisconsin next week, BYU over spring break, and will be scheduling a visit to Michigan soon as well.

I thought this was really interesting. It helps explain why he wasn't given as thorough a look for the Michigan DB job as he or some others wanted. I know WTKA had a huge talk about race the other day. Apparently it wasn't a racial issue, rather an issue of ability.

2012 Rivals 250 to Watch is out

2012 Rivals 250 to Watch is out

Today, Rivals release their 250 to Watch list for 2012, which includes six players from Michigan.  Four of them should be household names to Wolverine fans already:

  • Danny O'Brien
  • Royce Jenkins-Stone
  • James Ross
  • Terry Richardson

The other two I am not familiar with (Efe Scott-Emuakpor and Kelby Latta).

Anyway, since Rivals usually has at least 250 4* members (well, the top 30 or so of their rankings are 5*), this is a decent barometer of an initial top 250 of Rivals rankings.

It's paywalled so I don't know what it says outside of the obvious. I'm guessing TomVH or someone else can confirm this.

I couldn't find highlights for Burbridge, which is strange since he's the highest rated out of the three but here are the other two.

Thought that this was a pretty cool little video made by John McEntee, a qb for UConn. I'm not sure how this translates to game type situations but he is a pretty damn accurate quarterback. (I was the most impressed by the throws he made while sitting down in the basketball stadium)
