Hopefully this BBQ  reassures Richardson that Michigan is the place for him and more importantly that the fellow commits are people he wants to play with.

I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but what happens at the BBQ?   Is it just a meet and greet?   Do they have campus tours or meeting with the academic advisors (similar to when a recruit visits)?   Are any current or former players present?

Tom-   Do you ever hear any rumblings about Keith Marshall.  Sam mentioned him this morning on the Recruiting Roundup and said that he is a possible for the RB slot, may visit in the fall, but doesn't talk much about his plans.

The names I'm especially happy to see on the list are Danny O'Brien and Steven Elmer.  I'd LOVE it if Bri'onte Dunn could attend too.  The more we can get him up here, the better our chances are with him IMO.  Of course, having the Cass Tech guys here makes me feel better too.  Sounds like a great event and I look forward to seeing the final list.  Thanks Tom.
