I understand many are exhausted by the topic, particularly nearing NSD, but I found the article (link) interesting.
1. It really did come down to the final day, which I think acquits Sam Webb (some were accusing him of prolonging the story to get subscriptions).
2. He didn't commit to Michigan for reasons Harbaugh would respect. Michigan doesn't yet have the recruiting to claim that all their athletes will face off against the best in practice. Harris framed this a way Harbuagh would, talking about constantly getting better against the best football players in the country.
A lot of bad news today, perhaps this bit could help us all sleep tonight. FTR, Sam Webb has stated that Filiaga is one of the few offensive line targets who could start right away.
Also, Wiltfong very recently stated he had a "gut feeling" that Filiaga would be going to Oklahoma, so clearly he learned something very significant that swayed his opinion.
Per Sam Webb, Jalen Kelly-Powell commits to Michigan.
Sam just reported this good news on his show.
Hey guys, thought I'd share another video. This time it's for Michigan commit Joel Honigford, the 2017 3* OT from Garaway, OH. Super nice guy - was very patient in waiting for this video.
Hey guys - I collaborated with Corey Malone-Hatcher once again to create another video. This one is for both of Michigan's main Cass Tech targets - Donovan Peoples-Jones and Jaylen Kelly-Powell.
Took some of your advice and used the clean version of the song - hope you all enjoy!

I'll update with other classes when I'm free. Looks like it will be a big weekend. A win will probably go a long ways with some really, really good recruits...
Hit me up with your questions for next Monday's mailbag.
There were some good questions remaining in last week's, so I may answer a couple of those still. I am keeping track of all questions asked in each of these so I'll keep picking out the best ones, even if they're from past board posts.
