and that's with them already having to raise capacity by 200 spots due to demand (the original cap filled up in 8 days) 

The full story (with an obligitory Freep link warning): http://www.freep.com/story/sports/college/university-michigan/wolverine…

If you don't want to click on that, I guess I'll copy and paste the full thing: 

"When Rutgers challenged Michigan with its own satellite camp in New Jersey, there was little chance that U-M football coach Jim Harbaugh would accept it meekly.
 
So instead of just attending and participating in the event, as U-M coaches will do at roughly 38 camps next month, the one at Paramus (N.J.) Catholic had to be bigger and badder.
 
Paramus president James Vail announced today that the Next Level Elite Camp on June 8 has had to cap registration at 600 kids. The original allotment of 400 filled up in just eight days.
 
It quickly expanded to 450 campers with the planned use of fields, lawns, the school gym, tennis courts, and chalk talk in classrooms. Plans for represented colleges moved from seven or eight to 37, plus one NFL head coach, the Baltimore Ravens' John Harbaugh.
 
But with Jim Harbaugh, when it becomes a competition, it's never enough. Now the Paramus camp is up to 600 participants from 200 schools and also will utilize the Bergen Community College fields across the street. There will be 80 college coaches from 40 teams in 10 states and Washington, D.C.
 
It also will be streamed live.
 
Rutgers coach Chris Ash has downplayed any competitiveness between the Paramus camp and his Tri-State Showcase with Temple and some Ohio State coaches at Fairleigh Dickinson University. He told the Asbury Park Press that his was in the works for months, though he declined to comment on the timing of his camp announcement in relation to U-M's.
 
Many prominent New Jersey high school coaches have said that they'll be sending their players to the Rutgers camp to support it. But the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association has ruled that in-state high school coaches cannot work at the camps because it is out of season."

OT: Chris Partridge Appreciation Thread

OT: Chris Partridge Appreciation Thread

Who’s Chris Partridge? He’s the head football coach at Paramus Catholic High School in Paramus, New Jersey. With much of the focus here yesterday having been on losing Malik McDowell to Michigan State, I’m not sure if anyone has mentioned how close Michigan was to becoming the biggest loser on college football’s National Signing Day. Chris Partridge might’ve saved Michigan from that ignominious fate.

According to an article today in one of the northern New Jersey newspapers, Jabrill Peppers was wavering on his commitment to Michigan as late as Tuesday night. Peppers reportedly said, I guess I got nervous [Tuesday] and started doubting myself. But Coach Partridge spent a lot of time with me and put everything back into perspective. I realized Michigan is the place I wanted to be. http://www.northjersey.com/sports/Jabrill_Peppers_signs_Michigan_letter_of_intent.html

So, thank you, Chris Partridge.

On a side note, there might be reason to root for another one of Jabrill Peppers’ teamamtes, besides Juwann Bushell-Beatty. Alex Beards of Paramus Catholic signed with Slippery Rock!
