My immediate guess would be Dukes, but I've been surprised a lot this weekend, so we'll see.  I'd say there is a possibility that we get any of the guys on campus tomorrow, and possibly Treadwell, Isaac (although I think he'd the least likely to commit tomorrow).

One of the main Rivals recruiting pages is a story about how Auburn shocked Isaac. It is premium but it doesn't seem good especially given Aquaman stating that he thinks Isaac is going to entertain more national offers than just Michigan and ND. If I was a gambling man then maybe I would put money on Isaac. But since I am a betting man, Dukes is far more likely to pick us. Deniro also seemed thrilled to have an offer. Plus a bunch of new offers went out. Maybe someone from them wants to hop on board. Tread and Isaac seemed too concerned about seeing these national schools that I wouldn't bet on them.

After the 12/13 season we have the following options at center depth:

1. J.  Miller, True freshman

2. J. Miller, converted Guard (Bryant?), true freshman (also a possible G conversion)

3. J Miller, Kozan (RS F), true freshman

Option 1 is ugly.  Option 2 is kind of ugly in that it saps away G depth.  I still like Option 3 alot.  I'd really be cool with a scholarship going to a high 3* center candidate (if any are left) if we whiff on Kozan for the '12 class.  

*Keep in mind the average NFL Center is 6' 4*.  Our smallest current OL recruit for 2013 is 6' 4". One growth spurt and we could find ourself lacking anyone in the '12 and '13 classes who has a low enough center of gravity to excel at center.

Well Treadwell told Ty Isaac a bit ago to follow him on twitter, in all likelihood to Direct Message him, and now he's saying him and Shane are "conversating."

It's totally him.

Treadwell came out and said that Michigan was his favorite after he got home from his visit. It would be a similar situation to LTT. We're his favorite, but his timeline doesn't match a potential imminent commitment. If he does commit, I will be jubilant.

We've got 2 of the Illinois 5 so far.

Right and like you said, LTT didn't exactly stick to his 'announce at the AA game' timeline either.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if Laquon saw what's been happening in Ann Arbor this weekend and decide that it makes sense to get on board now, rather than try to see if there's another school out there worth prolonging the process for.

Does anyone else think at some point in the future, Shane Morris will be head coach of Michigan?  That kid is should be head of recruiting as far as I'm concerned.  And if UM had Chip Kelly as head coach, I'm sure we would already be paying him!!!   Oh no you didn't!!!!

Ty Isaac likes Michigan alot from what I've been told and there is a good chance he ends up going blue (especially with the line we are bringing in). However, he likes ND alot as well and is at a school that has sent some players that way. I agree with the posters above that it is probably Dukes. This guy loved his visit and probably is wanting to be part of the big weekend!

Just read a post on RCMB, they actually had the gall to to say the UM fans had to be happy about recruiting, because it was all we had going for us.  That was followed up by a statement saying UM was inferior on the field.  I hope Hoke goes for two on their asses, because he can't go for three!!! Yeah I went there!!!!
