Submitted by robbyt003 on December 13th, 2012 at 9:33 AM


The entire 2013 recruiting class except: Patrick Kugler (in state championship game), Channing Stribling (took his official in November), and Ben Gedeon is a maybe.  

Not Committed:

David Dawson - They'll definitely be putting the full court press on him, I'd be VERY surprised if he didn't re-commit on the spot.

Dan Skipper (OT) 2013 - 6'10" 295 lb lbs who is currently committed to TENN.

Not Committed, Maybe Visiting:

Reon Dawson (CB) 2013 - Teammate of Mike McCray, currently committed to ILL.

Lawrence Marshall (DE) 2014 - 6'4" 210 lbs, lives in Michigan.

Malik McDowell (DT) 2014 - 6'6"292 lbs, lives in Michigan

Nah, that would be derivative.

I think I'm going to contact Farrell about a series called Mike and Magnus Mind Meld.  That's even more alliterative, with the added bonus of include me.  What more could you want?

Butt is going to have his Hand full with Taco, so he's going to have to be sly like a Fox or else it's going to be an up Hill battle for playing time and he'll have to Ward off some challengers.  I just hope these guys can stay out from behind Bars and stay on the field between two Ferns in 2016.

I Gant wait for the 2013 season to see these guys put up their Dukes.  Let's Gedeon already!

Triple M of Mone, Marshall and McDowell would be fantastic for 2014.

I just saw Mone's eval on Tremendous and concur 100% with the summary (likewise D is my area and Mone is an "oh shit" prospect). The other 2 are solid and could become beasts with enough speed & agility training.

But you're making very "new" mistakes that are annoying to many posters...just throwing it out there. Don't shoot the messenger. It happens every day where some new person doesn't read...their post gets negged, they keep posting, they get negged, then they make some rant about MGoBlog being exactly what people say...and that post gets negged. And that's how it ends.

You asked about Green. This thread is an expected vistors list. If Green isn't mentioned, then he's not an expected visitor considering all of the expected guys are mentioned in the original post.

Also, through a little research, you'll find that Green took his official visit during the MSU game this year.

How many scholarships do we have left?

I think we lead and will get Dawson and Green.

I think McQuay "shocks" folks and goes to Vandy to play for Coach Franklin, but he'd be my next guess as the third spot.

I believe that's all the room we have...but if we don't get McQuay and we assume we get the first two...who gets the third spot?

I'm going to assume that if Lewan leaves it opens up a 4th spot and we'll take an OT that has been mentioned in the OP, so I'll consider that a "wash."

So back to that third spot...if it's not McQuay (and no, not Treadwell)...who is it?

I think Devin Gardner has an unbelievable bowl game against South Carolina, going 48 of 60 for 6 passing TD's, 560 yards, and 1 INT. Roundtree, Gallon, Dileo, Funchess, Denard, and Darboh each get a TD pass and each has over 70 yards receiving. It's clear, though, that Gardner's passing makes them play much better than they would otherwise be capable of.

With Devin's rushing touchdown, the final score is 49-21 Michigan, and Treadwell realizes that if an 8-4 Michigan can beat up on a 10-2 SEC team, the SEC as a conference is a bit over-rated (Ole Miss included). Gardner gets cleared for his medical redshirt during the postgame presser, and it becomes clear to Laquon that our passing game is a perfect fit for him. He picks us on NSD.

Also, Jake Long unearths a previously-unknown eligibility loophole and comes in (healthy) to fill in after Taylor Lewan is the 8th pick in the NFL draft. Dawson commits immediately after his Ohio State visit in January, and Green also chooses Maize and Blue. We also end up with Hilliman as a corner and E.J. Levenberry comes into the fold. This puts our class into second on Rivals.

Oh, and Alabama beats ND in the MNC game, 49-6.

I know we post "hello" and "goodbye" threads on recruits/players but if Dawson recommits does Ace/Brian post a "Welcome Back" thread?

If so - have we ever seen one of those before?


December 13th, 2012 at 12:38 PM ^

Coffee is for closers...Time for Hoke to quiet the naysayers.  Let's close with

1) Dawson recommit

2) Green

3) McQuay

4) Treadwell


I have not given up on McQuay or Treadwell.  And if Conley does visit tomorrow, I would not be surprised if he flipped back over, being reminded of exactly what he like about Michigan in the first place.


December 13th, 2012 at 1:23 PM ^

What Conley liked about Michigan in the first place was that we offered him a scholarship and no one else did. He committed before coming to campus, so I don't see why coming to campus will help him realize that anyway.
