Brionte Dunn visiting this weekend

Submitted by Dreisbach1817 on May 4th, 2011 at 2:20 PM

Per twitter: Allen Trieu Canton Glenoak (OH) RB Brionte Dunn to visit #Michigan this weekend.

Presumably he will be there this weekend with the Farmington Hills Harrison trio.  It's also being reported that with Ojemudia possibly close to committing to Michigan, Burbridge might not be so much of a MSU lock.  This could end up being a HUGE weekend for Michigan recruiting.

EDIT: See Tom VH's response below regarding Ojemudia & Burbridge, as well as Dunn.

Even if Ojemudia commits, it might not matter with Burbridge. He reportedly doesn't have the grades to get into UM. Either way, it could still be a big weekend without Burbridge.

If it is a serious concern, why not bring it up? After RichRod brought in several kids who couldn't qualify, I would like to get back to recruiting "sure things" when it comes to grades. I don't like missing out on other recruits by chasing a kid that may not even qualify. It brings back bad memories of the Dorsey/Parker fiasco.

the grade issues have been described as being not that different from Thomas Rawls's.  Obviously no one knows the real situation, but Michigan isn't completely unwilling to take borderline academic guys as long as they're actually qualified.

Yes, his interest is very real. His dad is very interested in what happens with the NCAA stuff, but has said the Michigan coaches have been recruiting him very hard.

I actually just talked to his dad to confirm this and they will be up there on Friday for the day.

I'm sold. After watching only the first few minutes of the video I was really impressed. Certain guys are good return men and some are REALLY good. He looks like the latter. He adjusts really well to the ball and makes some difficult catches. If Tom says not to put too much into his grades, then I'm sold for sure.

Yeah, Burbridge would be a huge get if he can stick for Michigan. We really could use an impact wide out with Stones, Hemmingway, and Odoms due to graduate. I think Burbridge could possibly step in right away and make an impact for senior Denard. I would love to have this kid on the team if he can qualify. If he can't, I hate that we put guys who we put in the position to join, but fail. I hope he can make it.

Blasphemy!  Wormley's going to commit with Ojemudia, Dunn's going to commit with Keith Marshall, and then Burbridge is going to commit with Dorial Green-Beckham.

nobody has mentioned this yet. We have made note that our recruits have been commiting in pairs: 2 OL, 2 LB, 2 TE, and 2 MOAR LB. But has anyone noticed that in each set of 2, there is one from Michigan and one from Ohio, leaving us with a perfect 1:1 ratio between the two states?
