Daren Kitchen Offer

Submitted by Trader Jack on July 31st, 2010 at 9:05 PM

There is an article on Scout about Louisiana CB Daren Kitchen. In it he mentions that Michigan has given him a verbal offer, but he hasn't heard from Rich Rod yet. I know TomVH mentioned pretty much the same thing a week or so ago so I'm wondering, is this a "commitable" offer? Or is the fact that he still hasn't heard from Rich Rod a sign that he's more of a backup plan at this point? I, for one, would love to see him join this class.

was on vacation at the time when the offer was first put on the table to kitchen, that was a few weeks ago... plus if you read the "kellen jones commitment quotes" from tom you'll see that kellen and his family were in rich rods office talking to him when he commited... so i take that as he is back from vacation...

He might get an offer, but the fact that he said several weeks ago that he received a verbal offer and the official offer would be in the mail soon...

...and it still hasn't reached him...

...tells me that the coaches aren't thrilled with what he brings to the table.

I'd like to add a top-of-the-line cornerback like Doran Grant, but that's not likely.  I'm not a huge fan of the corners we currently have committed, but oh well.

Valdez Showers (CB) and Avery Walls (S) would be good additions.  I'm also high on Wayne Lyons, Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, and Charles Jackson, but those are less likely.

I like Crawford better than some of our current commitments.  He's a hitter and he can run.  I'd probably take him over Showers, but I feel like Crawford is tied to Sammy Watkins, and I don't think Watkins is coming here.  Not that they're a package deal, but if Watkins isn't coming north, then I figure Crawford will stay somewhere down south, too.

we're in on bigger fish right now including in stater Valdez Showers and top 2 for Dallas Crawford.  Given that Kitchen has stated he'd commit on the spot I would guess that written won't be coming anytime soon.
