Who's got it better than them?!
This is my first attempt at a twitter embed. I am sure I will screw it up.
Edit: I kind of did it right? Internetz is hard
This information appears to be scattered all over and hasn't been condensed in any particular spot, as far as I know. Here's the info I have, but I think it's incomplete. Help me out if you know.
QB - B. Peters
RB - K. Davis
TE - Sean McKeon
WR - A. Mitchell (seems confirmed)
WR - B. Hawkins (source: Sam Webb, through Wolverine Devotee)
DE/OLB - C. Kemp
ILB - D. Bush, Jr.
RB - K. Walker
TE - I. Nauta
Anyone I missed?
EDITS: Added Hawkins, changed note on Mitchell
The early enrollees will be hitting campus sometime in the coming week or so.
Heard a term used by a coach and also heard the term used in one of the All Star games.
De-recruiting I belive. Anybody familiar with this process. I appreciate any feedback thanks.
I'm felt it was worth a post to comment on the great character that our Early Enrollee's all seem to have. Being privy to their interviews through rivals, I have to say that I am very, very impressed with the way they carry themselves. It is nice to see spotlight (teenage) football players actually be humble for once. Just another reason why UofM football is the best!
Curious on anyone else's reactions to this topic or any other reactions towards our EEs?
Ricardo Miller - Early enrolleeIt is well known that the following players are still under consideration for any remaining scholarships in this class:
Jeremy Jackson - Early enrollee
Jerald Robinson - Early enrollee
Devin Gardner - Early enrollee??
Stephen Hopkins - Early enrollee
Marvin Robinson - Early enrollee
Christian Pace - Early enrollee
Austin White - Early enrollee
Adrian Witty - Early enrollee
CB - Tony Grimes (4 star on Scout/3 star on Rivals)However, there may be a few more.
DE - Clarence Murphy (3 star on Scout/3 star on Rivals)
S - Sean Parker (4 star on Scout/4 star on Rivals)
OG - Torrian Wilson (3 star on Scout/4 star on Rivals)
DT - Big Tex Beachum (4 star on Scout/3 star on Rivals)
DT - Jonathan Hankins (3 star on Scout/3 star on Rivals)
DT - Michael Thornton (4 star on Scout/4 star on Rivals)
CB - Dior Mathis (4 star on Scout/4 star on Rivals)
CB - Rashad Knight (3 star on Scout//4 star on Rivals)
1 - Michael ThorntonThat would make for an amazing finish, that I'm sure most of us would be thrilled with. I realize Thornton is a long shot, but we're in the game. It is just as likely that we will end with a player or two we've not yet heard of.
2 - Sean Parker
3 - Tony Grimes
4 - Clarence Murphy
5 - Torrian Wilson
6 - Big Tex Beachum
7 - Rashad Knight
I know there have been numerous threads on this already, but those of you with a rivals account will notice one of the members got in contact with the Big Ten Director of Compliance.
Nothing has changed, although you’ve never been able to “backdate” and count a student-athlete (SA) in a year in which they weren’t in attendance. What I suspect you’re thinking of is the fact that mid-year enrollees (except SAs receiving aid under the “mid-year replacement” rule?described below) count against the overall limit of 85, but may count against the initial limit of 25 in either the year of initial enrollment (if there’s room) or in the year immediately following.
-all of the above describe NCAA rules; the Big Ten rule is that at no time can you be in a situation where more than 3 scholarships over the limit have been offered. So, if I have room for 25 initial counters next year, I can sign 28; if I have room for 20 initial counters next year, I can sign 23.
This topic came up at lunch today and I was struck by the fact that I genuinely did not know the answer.
When a recruit enrolls early to a university, have they generally completed summer school work to make it so that they have enough credits to earn their high school diploma at the semester break, or is their an equivalence issue, or is there some NCAA loophole on this?
Similarly, has anyone looked at how the class of 2011, at least those players from the state of Michigan, will be affected by the new requirements of the Michigan Merit Curriculum? With the more stringent requirements for graduation, will we see less early enrollees from the state of Michigan in the future.
Any insight that can be provided would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
