TomVH: Iowa Visitors

Submitted by TomVH on October 12th, 2010 at 3:04 PM

Here's the list of recruits I have confirmed coming in for the Iowa game. As always, this list will have names added and dropped as it gets closer to game day. I'm going out of town from Thursday until Monday though, so there won't be much if anything from me until Monday. Please refrain from making the, "Yeah, but what about defensive recruits?!" comments. Just because there aren't many visiting for this game doesn't mean Michigan isn't recruiting them; they are.


  • DT Timmy Jernigan - 6'2", 275 lbs, 4 Star, Lake City, Florida
  • TE Drew Owens - 6'5", 225 lbs, 3 Star, Charlotte, North Carolina
  • DB Dallas Crawford - 5'10", 185 lbs, 3 Star, Fort Myers, Florida
  • WR Sammy Watkins - 6'1", 180 lbs, 4 Star, Fort Myers, Florida
  • WR Hakeem Flowers - 6'2", 175 lbs, 3 Star, Greenville, South Carolina
  • WR Quinta Funderburk - 6'5", 204 lbs, 3 Star, Chesapeake, Virginia
  • QB Kevin Sousa - 6'3", 210 lbs, 3 Star, Lake Nona, Florida (Commit)


  • DE Chris Wormley - 6'4", 255 lbs, Toledo, Ohio
  • RB Will Mahone - 5'11", 205 lbs, Austintown, Ohio (He confirmed he will be there)
  • DB Luc Haupt - 6'0", 180 lbs, Austintown, Ohio
  • DB Chris Davis - 5'10", 183 lbs, Austintown, Ohio
  • QB Demitrious Davis - 5'10", 183 lbs, Austintown, Ohio

There will be more 2012 kids added to the list soon. I'm still trying to confirm some, so keep checking back later tonight and tomorrow.

Thanks for letting us know you'll be gone Tom.  It won't be easy, but I'm going to do my best to get through it.  I appreciate having a few days to prepare myself for your absence.

For those asking about defense, Dallas Crawford is a very talented player. He plays quarterback at his high school, but I think he'd be a great fit for Michigan at corner.

Also, Sammy Watkins is one of the best players in Florida and the nation. He could immediate contribute at wide receiver or free safety, so keep your fingers crossed, Watkins is a player.

Hopefully this visit buttons up Watkins and Crawford, those are the 2 main 2011 guys at this game, unless Zettel is stopping by.

Side note Tom whats with the "I wouldn't worry about him" comment on Frost??? Are you holding some important info from us????

I am so excited about the future of this team.  The offense lets the defense dictate what it will do and it is unstoppable. If the CBs jam they fake a WR shimmy and hit the slant. If they play off they hit the WR shimmy. The zone read when run to perfection is a 4 or 5 yard gimme. Denard is in his 6th start and already is putting up video game numbers and he doesn't yet fully understand the O. Think about when he is a senior and he is playing against a defense full of players younger than him! Add D-Hart to the mix... The D will add Wolfolk, JT will have another year, BWC will be out there, Marvin, Roh, Furman! The beauty is the defense doesn't even have to be great if the O does what it is capable of doing. An average D with this O can win a NC. This is going to be so fucking fun to watch. Don't know why I just got excited, but I did.

I hadn’t heard of Quinta Funderburk before so I looked him up and his recruit rating status is a bit unusual.

He's a 6’5, 204 lb receiver who accumulated 1,150 yards and 12 TDs his junior year.

He holds offers from Michigan, Alabama, Florida, USC, PSU, VaTech and Arkansas, just to name a few…

Yet Rivals has him rated at 5.7, which makes him a 3-star recruit.

I wonder what’s holding him back from that 4th star.

It is the same story for Hakeem Flowers. He has offers from everyone yet is rated the #107 WR to scout ( and the #72 for rivals ( He's a three star on both and hopefully he'll get more recognition because his offers seem to suggest he is a lot better player.

really glad that wormley will be at the game.  he has to be one of the top targets for our class next year

also is it safe to say that crawford will be on committment watch after this visit?  its seems like we have been out front for a while and he loved his visit for the spring game.  he would be a huge pick up and will help recruit watkins
