A few interesting recruiting notes (3-26-12 edition)

Submitted by RollDamnTide on March 26th, 2012 at 2:50 PM

A couple people have messaged me privately about who the two Michigan commits are going to be. With the 2nd commit, I can only guess at this point, until I get a chance to talk to my guys and kick the tires. As for the 1st, I'm not a recruiting expert, but since I'm privy to some inside info, I take it seriously. I'm pretty certain I know who that recruit is, and I won't say his name, because I want to give the kid his spotlight. Having said that however, one can easily discern who that recruit is, by reading my previous posts. I've been pretty adamant about this young man going to Michigan for quite some time. I'm pretty certain the board will be very hard to access for a solid hour and a half after he commits. 


The second recruit is unknown to me right now, but I am hearing that if his Dad  likes what he sees, he will allow E.J to pull the trigger. Will that Happen? Hey, your guess is as good as mine. What's is the weather like in AA that weekend? From the people that know something about it, they say that Michigan is definitely EJ's top school at the moment. His Dad does like Florida State, but I don't think it's as much as Mike Farrell says he does. He wants to wait until signing day to decide, that's certain. Having said that, I will say this. For Michigan to turn down Dorian O'Daniel, they had to know something about E.J, and be REALLY confident. Ben Gedeon is a solid prospect, but he's not the kind of prospect that you turn O'Daniel for, Levenberry is. What people haven't mentioned, is that Levenberry and O'Daniel are projected to play the same LB spot at the next level. Gedeon is a bigger kid, and not likely to be used the same as O'Daniel and Levenberry. Do the math.


I wasn't expecting to post an update this early, so I'll include some national and SEC recruit updates in my next post. Thanks for reading, guys.

I have a really good friend that lives in Montgomery and is a huge Bama fan. For years he has known more about national recruiting that I could dream of. Bama football is a religion and recruiting is just an extension - so keep the updates coming. BTW - your initials aren't RG are they?

Really love these updates, Thanks for letting us in on some of your insider info.

Also, excited about the Isaac news, wont need to worry about wither smith or Isaac would work better, got em both!

I'm very, very excited for the spring game for lots of reasons, not the least of which is that if we get Isaac, Treadwell, Levenberry, or Poggi we'll be on our way to one of the best classes in Michigan history, and we'll be kicking ohio's butt.

RDT, please keep the updates coming.

So RB Isaac, WR Treadwell,  DT Poggi, and LB Levenberry go Blue, that gets us to 20 already! Yikes! But where do we still have needs? We have super depth at TE and RB, LB is full, but the OLBs can move up by year two so would we take a second DE, would we take another DT or another DB/ATH maybe? Where do our schollie numbers stand?

I think if we get these guys you listed above then we look for a nose tackle, a linebacker and a wide receiver. With that last spot I think we take the best available like a Sua Cravens. I also think that if the coaches see a fourth d lineman as a need then they will go after that instead of a third WR

Although I'd like to believe RDT's reports, I am privvy to some inside information.  A couple people have messaged me privately that his purported screen name,

RDT=Roll Damn Tide is a pseudonym.
His initials actully stand for:

RDT= "Really Dirty Tuchas."

My sources say his reports are a bunch of crap.

I wasn't expecting to post a report on RDT' so early.  So, in my next post, I'll update his bio, including the life history of his Ohio-alum parents: Betty Bottom and Horace Manure.

Thanks for reading, guys.
