Looks like Ace and TomVH are confirming as well.

We're still a week away from the one-year anniversary of probably the greatest weekend in MIchigan recruiting history. Is this beginning of a repeat?

Huge pick-up.  First offer to any 2014 recruit, so happy to have this guy on board.

Here's to hoping add DaShawn and Malik on the outsides, and Mone on the inside.

and Ohio depthwise I think it will be key to get a few more national recruits and we are already off to a good start with Mone and Spreight.

That on the Rivals 250 board people were just wondering what his timeline for a decision was. Also, I believe Magnus stated that he believes that he was underated at #172 and looks like a top 100 player. Great pickup!

Basketball preview day, and now he's got to get a Hello post done before the game starts.  Then he will need to write a recap post afterward.  Somebody get this man some coffee.

This kid is a terrific talent. His athleticism, leverage and pursuit are elite level; plus he seems to possess a high-octane attitude.

6'4 and 310 are probably exaggerated but he should have zero issues being physically ready to play by 2014.

Great news ... And a big welcome to Bryan. Go Blue.

but Montgomery is the coach I feel is most likely to have a stack of cash thrown his way to go be a D-coordinator at some other FBS school. He's been successful everywhere he's gone (our D-line has exceeded expectations both years now) and he's a killer recruiter. I'm sure people are eyeballing him already

Even if that is the case, I think Michigan will do its best to hold onto him. I think this staff genuinely likes working together and there is probably potential for Montgomery to succeed Mattison when he decides to retire. Brandon has made it a priority to retain assistants and if Montgomery gets offers, I'd guess he'll get money thrown at him here too.

I'm sure most OSU fans out there will be quick to reassure us that he's just a leftover that Meyer won't want anyway. But in all seriousness, this kid looks like a wooly mammoth. Looking forward to seeing him on the field. Welcome aboard, good sir.

Mone is probably a step above Marshall, but unless we end up with an absurd DL class like Mone/Hand/McDowell, I'd still like to see a WDE pass rusher in there. Marshall was probably our best offer at the position if you exclude the elite national guys that are going to be nearly impossible to pull in.
