Scouting Report: Vic Enwere

Scouting Report: Vic Enwere

Submitted by Magnus on November 20th, 2013 at 8:20 AM

This week's scouting report is on Sugar Land (TX) Fort Bend Austin running back Vic Enwere, who was offered by Michigan last week. Michigan is looking for a RB in the 2014 class and has little/no hope of pulling in consensus top back Leonard Fournette, so they're casting their net a little wider with the offer to Enwere. He's currently committed to Cal.

Eastern Christian Academy (2014 Commits Canteen/Watson) @ Maplewood TN 9/27

Eastern Christian Academy (2014 Commits Canteen/Watson) @ Maplewood TN 9/27

Submitted by Look Up_See Blue on September 24th, 2013 at 9:22 PM

For those of you Michigan fans living in the Nashville/Middle TN area I wanted to let you know that there's a chance to catch a couple future Michigan Men in action this Friday.  Eastern Christian Academy (home of 2014 Michigan commits Freddy Canteen and Brandon Watson) is coming to Nashville on Friday 9/27 to play at Maplewood HS at 7 p.m. CST.  I'm trying to get confirmation that is game is being played because It's not on Maplewood's schedule, but is listed on the Eastern Christian Academy schedule on Maxpreps.  I couldn't find their school link anywhere.  The Maplewood coach mentioned this game to me a few weeks back but wasn't certain if it was being played or not.  As soon as I can get a confirmation I'll post it here.  I'm sorry if this is useless to many but just thought I'd let ya'll know about this chance to see some Michigan prospects playing in this area.  My plan was to attend and then give a small report about their performance, but I have to go out of town for a bachelor party this weekend so I won't be able to go.  If anyone makes it please let us know how Canteen/Watson performed, Go Blue!!!!

This edition of the recruiting rankings features a change at the top of the board — one you probably won't like, obviously — as well as the debut of the NOTY Power Rankings, because players named J-Shun and Geronimo committed to Big Ten schools this month and this clearly requires action.

7-5-13: Jason Hall decommits from Nebraska (later commits to Texas). Nebraska picks up Larenzo Stewart.
7-8-13: Wisconsin picks up D.J. Gillins. Iowa picks up Mick Ellis. Purdue picks up Gelen Robinson.

Nebraska wins recruiting battle with OSU for 2014 QB Zack Darlington

Nebraska wins recruiting battle with OSU for 2014 QB Zack Darlington

Dual-threat QB Zack Darlington of Apopka, FL (hometown of M's own Jeremy Gallon), has chosen Nebraska over offers from the likes of Virginia Tech, Arizona, West Virginia, Auburn, Ole Miss, and--perhaps most significantly--Ohio State.  According to an Orlando Sentinel article covering his committment, Darlington "picked the 'Huskers over Ohio State, much to the dismay of Buckeyes' head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Tim Herman, about whom Darlington could not say enough good things."  Darlington is a 4-star on ESPN and a 3-star to the other three. Here is a link to the Orlando Sentinel article.
