Bluestreak hasn't been maintaining the 2014 offer list so I've updated it. I used Rivals offer list along with TTB and the old 2014 list to compile this chart, making some judgment calls along the way. In some cases, I moved players to the positions they were offered at by Michigan's staff. (with the exception of Bo Scarbrough who was offered as a WR.) Michigan has verbally offered 85 players. The distribution is as follows:

QB: 1

RB: 8

WR: 13

TE: 4

OL: 18

DE: 7

DT: 4

LB: 12

CB: 9

S: 6

ATH: 3

In-State Players of Interest:

DT Kenneth Finley 6'3" 265 lbs. Muskegon HS

CB Jalen Watts-Jackson 6' 173 lbs. Orchard Lake St. Mary's Prep

LB William White 6'1" 215 lbs. Detroit Cass Tech HS

RB/LB Gary Hosey 6' 230 lbs. Detroit Cass Tech HS

When are offers pulled?

I am curious about how and when scholarship offers are pulled off the table. There are several instances last year where it seems an offer may have been pulled:

  • Yuri Wright (use of social media?)
  • Stefon Diggs (going out of town during a scheduled visit?)
  • Ron Thompson (didn't need him?)
  • Pharaoh Brown (went on an official, therefore rescinding commitment, and possibly offer?)
  • Tommy Schutt (didn't want, especially after Pipkins committed?)

In particular, I'm wondering what happens when a position group is largely filled. We have five offers accepted for 2013 on the offensive line. Does this mean that existing offers are "wait listed," ( i.e., "If a spot opens up, we'll let you know, but there isn't space now?") Or, if a player is rated highly enough (Tunsil?) they can commit at any time? Or, if a player is rated low enough, "thanks for your interest, but we no longer have room for you. Sorry it didn't work out."

For those of you who actually either played D-I ball or have been part of a coaching staff or have been related to a player, what does an offer look like? Are there conditions and strings attached?

In some ways, it seems a little bit like a game of "chicken," waiting to see who blinks first. If you wait too long, there is no longer a spot available. If you commit too quickly, maybe you don't investigate the field of suitors as comprehensively as you'd like.

I can see that at some positions, where several athletes have expressed serious interest, you are playing with fire if you don't commit soon enough. I don't think it was a coincidence that some of the offensive linemen who had serious interest pulled the string once they saw the positions filling up.
