'Bama WR Coach to Become ASU OC

'Bama WR Coach to Become ASU OC

Looks like 'Bama will lose its current WR coach, who has a reputation as a great recruiter, to Arizona State to become the OC (link).

From what I understand, 'Bama isn't currently a big player in the Nico Collins sweepstakes, but maybe this helps Michigan out a little.

Najee Harris Explains His Commitment Decision

Najee Harris Explains His Commitment Decision

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.

Edit: This is actually not breaking news or anything. It has been known for some time. Here's the info (link), which read a bit like breaking news.

On the other hand, he has visited Michigan many times, and Harbaugh just had a visit with him.

Wiltfong Crystal Ball: Filiaga to Michigan

Wiltfong Crystal Ball: Filiaga to Michigan

Submitted by evenyoubrutus on January 1st, 2017 at 6:38 PM

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.

 

I just put in a @247CrystalBall forecast in favor of #Michigan for Top247 OT Chuck Filiaga: https://t.co/pso2DPhXrG #Wolverines

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!

Submitted by Steve Lorenz on September 15th, 2016 at 9:45 PM

Hey guys, 

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.
