Brad Hawkins to Prep School Comment Count

2016 four-star Michigan commitment Brad Hawkins officially announced on Friday that he will be enrolling at Suffield Academy in Connecticut, meaning he will not sign or enroll with the Wolverines this year.

That move was more or less expected after Hawkins failed to show up in the Michigan directory with the rest of the freshman and took down all the Michigan stuff from his twitter page. Steve Lorenz says the door is still open for him next year, and Michigan does take guys out of prep school.

There won't be much impact on this year's team. Michigan's wide receiver corps is strong this year and gets an infusion of talent from both this year's class and a couple of five-star sorts most expect will join up in 2017. They also have a couple senior safeties. If he gets whatever academic stuff he needs to get done and enrolls this spring it's more or less status quo.

If he does not get to Ann Arbor that's more of a hit for safety depth, where many people including myself believed he'd end up, than wide receiver.

Ruiz may have held something against Michigan because of something with Hawkins, his friend. I don't know how one could *potentially* be sour for not getting the grades to be admitted but that's how I read it. I must say that Hawkins sounds like he'd still like to come here, based on that tweet exchange with the obvious douchebag msu fan posing as a UM fan (that or just a sincerely monster douche UM fan).

Will this affect how many people can be signed next year? I know the 2017 class is supposed to be near 30 which is, I think, the max with early enrollees.

There was mention in the Chris Evans post today that Mitchell nearly transferred. I don't remember hearing anything about that previously. Detail, anyone?
