Anzalone not visiting this weekend

PA LB Alex Analone will not visit UM this weekend, was reportedly told by the coaches that they are full at linebacker. Sounds like the Coaches are pretty confident in the guys they are already recruiting.!/EpicTripod

newspaper yesterday.  Anzalone was standing next to  Urban Meyer wearing what appears to be Meyer's championship rings?  I've tried embedding  photo but no luck .

I don't quite understand the strategy of silent commits.

I remember that FSU was really known for it (so they 'finished strong' in recruiting a bunch). But why hide your assets if those assets will attract others? Maybe the 'assets attract others' part is too much of an assumption.

I talked with Alex who was told by the coaches that we're full at the LB position. Michigan is no longer a consideration for Alex barring incredibly crazy circumstances.

I don't like this I think the coaches should of let him visit, have you seen the kids offer list. Then again I can't question coach Hoke hope he's doing right thing

Do you think the coaches actually said, "We're full and we won't talk to you." They likely told him, "We don't anticipate having a spot for you and your offer is no longer committable." From there, he could read the writing on the wall. I really doubt they said "don't come."

Honestly, I don't think it would be anything against O'Daniel if we are saving a spot for Levenberry and not for him. O'Daniel projects as a weakside linebacker, something we've already taken plenty of in the last class. Levenberry projects to a position of need (SAM). That's why we're keeping a spot open for him because, besides Hutchings, he is the best player with interest in Michigan at that position (and Hutchings is a looooong shot). 

In a normal year, you'd love to have O'Daniel, but with the number constraints and the needs, it's going to be difficult to fit him in.We don't know what the coaches have said. We haven't been updated and it seems like he's still due to visit for the Spring Game.

 if they let him visit, it would tell us right there. correct? They told Anzalone that we were full, and not to visit,. i suppose we will see.

I see this as good news.  Coaches are obviously comfortable with the talent they have in the fold if they're already turning people away.
