A few minor recruiting notes

Submitted by Gobluegr on December 14th, 2011 at 6:38 PM
247 sports is reporting that Michigan is in Peter Kalambayi's top 5. For those who don't know about him, he is a 2013 linebacker and an early four star on scout and 247. http://michigan.247sports.com/Board/59424/Michigan-makes-Top-Five-for-K… ... The Washingon Post is reporting that Michigan has offered 2013 DE Jonathan Allen. He is 42nd best player in the country according to 247 sports... This weekend is the Addidas Maximum Exposure showcase at the silverdome and most of the top underclassmen in Michigan will be there. This event resulted in quite a few offers last year, and this year could have the same results. http://michigan.247sports.com/Article/Adidas-Maximum-Exposure-Showcase-…

His name will be a problem. For my sake, he will have to change his name to Peter Kumbaya or Peter Calamari if I'm ever going to have a chance to remember it correctly.

No problems with Mario Ojemudia, though, for some reason....

It is not required for a Michigan fan to remember the last name of every recruit who is offered.  Once a recruit has committed, learning last names is important--but it's not mandatory until they actually play.

Personally, I never thought I'd be able to learn how to remember Biakabutuka and I don't think I really had that name down at the beginning of his legendary Ohio State game.  By halfway through the first quarter, I had it cold, and have never forgotten it (even if I still can't spell it).

Ath/RB recruit from South Bend is saying that Michigan coaches are going to visit him tomorrow. He is likely to schedule a visit in January and he said he really likes Michigan.

He already has offers from LSU and Florida, among others.

Is there a reason that our staff wouldn't be getting on him heavily now that the Dunn ship has apparently sailed???  Kid is a 5-star, top 5 RB, similar size as Dunn, but Faster.  Pitt just lost their HC to ASU, so he has to be thinking.  We use to have a lot of pull in PA.....

Maybe Tony Gibson should be named the new head coach at Pitt.  That would satisfy Cullen Christian and (presumably) Rushel Shell.  With the way Gibson gets kids to follow him, he must be an excellent recruiter.  He'll get all kinds of talented kids to Pitt...

...and then they'll allow 400 yards passing every game and give up 40 points.
