Paywalled. Let the hand-wringing over "The Policy" recommence.

[Ed-Ace: This was debunked by Tremendous, Sam Webb, and TomVH. So... probably no need to worry, methinks.]

Wait and see...if he wants to visit other schools, let him, if he really wants to play at Michigan then that is where he will play. This certainly isn't the end of the world, even if he decommits, yeah, we'll lose a guy with some stars next to his name, but that just means it will give another guy an opportunity.

Btw, Derrick Green was answering some questions in a Rivals live chat. Highlights: Michigan has a small lead, best relationship with a coach is with Hoke, wants to major in sports psychology or business, plans on committing early this month, and the kicker is, will take more visits after committing. We'll see if that happens if he decides to commit to Michigan

A quick follow-up comment; as long as commitments check with the coaches, they're allowed to take other EDIT: UNOFFICIAL visits. The Cass Tech kids visited Alabama this summer while traveling to a 7v7 tournament; this group included Jourdan Lewis.

For what it is worth, I have been watching the UA practice on ESPNU since 3pm. I have not heard anything. They only talked about him to UM. I can tell you that the O line recruits looked pretty good!

i believe hoke is displaying another level of genius by letting recruits visit other schools...particularly ALA.  he knows coach satan is leaving for the NFL..so no worry about OUR recruits switching commitments...howeva all the alabama recruits will be ripe for the picking!
