Updated 2012 Recruit Offer List

Submitted by umhero on February 20th, 2011 at 10:24 PM

[Ed-M: Bumped to diary.]

I posted this the other day and it was well received. So, in light of TomVH's news, I thought I'd share the update.  

I refined the table a little bit.  I removed the column that says Michigan offered since that is evident and I added a column showing Scout's current player rank.

One of those kids is from my hometown (not MI), and let's just say the town isn't known for churning out five star talent. Since its not a feeder school in a feeder town, id have to think that we'd have a decent shot with him if we recruited him hard enough. Ill investigate more this week.

That offer distribution seems to be pretty close to a perfect fit for our needs in this class. Maybe a few more offers to both OL and DT, but from what I've read on this site, those are the harder positions to evaluate early so more offers to them will come later.

You address the mythical "last minute" 5 Star by not bringing back a fifth year player.  That is the real solution.  There's no risk of oversigning at Michigan because the cushion is made up by telling a senior he doesn't get a fifth year.

If you read my post then you would know I said you should just put it in your signature, Then it will say GO BLUE at the bottom of everyone of your posts. Mine says "Hail To The Victors Valiant, Hail To The Conquering Heroes". Your would say GO BLUE, do you understand what i'm talking about? I don't care what you do, it was just a suggestion.

We do have a cushion I guess, I'm just dreaming we bring in Marshall, B-Green, Bush, and that DE from Pennsylvania. Btw does anyone know why we haven't offered him, TomVH said "Michigan will factor into his recruitment" after all and that mattison has a relationship with his coach?

Not sure if this deserves another thread but  -

Scout is running a story behind the paywall about Terry Richardson looking at MSU and listing them high on his radar.

Is it time to panic?? A Technician going to MSU???

The only thing I find a little odd is that UM has offered 12 WR's after turning away a couple of good WR's who wanted to sign with UM in the 2011 class. If the staff really feels that UM is "good to go" at WR, why offer so many in the 2012 class?

It relates to recruiting balance.  I posted a diary about it the other day.

We will lose four (maybe five if we don't give T. Robinson a fifth year) wide receivers this coming year.  We didn't lose any from this year's team.  Even if we lose five we will still have 8 on the roster, but Hoke will still want a couple in the pipeline.

I suspect eventually we will get to the point where we will add 1 to 2 per season, and have a roster of 7 or 8 at all times.

Here's the 71 offers by state with the numbers by position in parens.  This  includes the 67 names listed in the table plus the four listed by DG Destroys. 

Ohio - 16 (QB, RB, WR, TE, 3 OL, 6 DE, DT, LB, S)

Michigan - 9 (WR, 2 TE, DE, 2 DT, 2 LB, CB)

Florida - 8 (QB, RB, 2 WR, TE, 2 OL, S)

California - 7 (3 WR, TE, 2 OL, 1 OL/DL)

Illinois - 4 (2 OL, 2 DT)

N. Carolina - 4 (RB, WR, 2 OL)

New Jersey - 3 (WR, 2 S)

Washington - 3 (QB, 2 OL)

Texas - 2 (2 LB)

Maryland - 2 (2 WR) 

Arizona -  2 (QB, OL)

Indiana -  2 (QB, DT)

Massachusetts - 2 (LB, CB)

Kentucky - 1 (QB)

Missouri - 1 (WR)

Pennsylvania - 1 (LB)

Colorado - 1 (OL)

Georgia - 1 (DE)

District of Columbia - 1 (DT)

Wisconsin - 1 (LB)


Using the four additional names, here's the position breakdown for the 71 offers:

  • 6 QBs
  • 3 RBs
  • 12 WRs
  • 5 TEs
  • 15 OL
  • 1 OL/DL
  • 8 DEs
  • 7 DTs
  • 8 LBs
  • 2 CBs
  • 4 Ss 

It's  interesting to note that there are no offers to offensive linemen in the state of Michigan, despite it being the state with the second largest number of offers.

It's also intriguing to note that the states number 3 and 4 on the list are Florida and California.  The latter makes sense given the ties Hoke and  his staff had while they were at San Diego State (the same probably applies to the youngsters from Arizona and Washington state).  Florida is filled with so much talent that it makes sense for U-M to make offers down there (although during Rodiguez's era, the newspapers would say he wasn't paying to attention to recruiting the state of Michigan).

Pennsylvania used to provide Michigan with a number of recruits, but there's only one to date on the list.  That said, there are offers out to players from a number of states on the Atlantic Coast from Massachusetts to Georgia. 

Here's how I see the recruiting numbers by region:

Midwest (Big Ten footprint, including PA):  33 (46.4%)

Southeast (incl Florida):  14 (19.7%)

Northeast/Mid-Atlantic (not including PA):  8 (11.3%)

West Coast (incl CA, AZ, WA): 12 (17.0%)

Plains (incl TX):  4 (5.6%)

Although Coach Hoke has talked about concentrating recruitng in the Midwest, the numbers show he's looking beyond the surrounding Big Ten area to find players--over 53% are from areas outside that area.   It'll be interesting to see how those percentages hold up once LOI signing day comes round next year.
