Even if it is Clark, that means Hoke's gotten a commit from a Glenville prospect. I know he isn't a guy that OSU was interested in, but it means Ginn doesn't have a fundamental hatred of Michigan and that he trusts Hoke with his players. We'll have a better shot with anyone coming out of there than we've had since the whole Ginn Jr. debacle.

I know he is a Glenville guy, which has proven to be not favorable for us in the recent past, but he would be a great addition to this class, especially if he is the only undecided of the top 30 QBs.

I felt the weekend was productive! We got 3 commits. And one more who plans on committing! I'm so excited!

I love this kid. When he acheives legend status as a player I WILL call the offense the Justice League

Wasn't Willingham meeting personally with OMM (Old Man Mattison) at halftime of the bball game? Put him down in Tom's good news category. Also think we get Bryant and Clark. McClure is the swing vote in my opinion. All of this is total speculation, fwiw.

Bryant and the DE from Texas (Alexander?) would be huge gets...Call me crazy but with the new coaching change I'm not giving up on committed instate kids like Arnett and Zettel. If I was Hoke I'd place the call and see what happens...The next 2 weeks will be fun...

I talked to posada while he was here. He seemed to be enjoying himself a lot and seemed to be really high on michigan. With that said, what else would he say while he is actually AT michigan.

sounds like they want Cooper pretty bad. They were in home with him when visiting Countess and now MAttison is calling him up. Come on Coop!

While I'd like a DT in this class, we can live without one too, as there is a surplus next year and we will still have Ash,Talbott,Washington and Campbell around plus maybe Rock. I really want us to steal that DT from Illinois, name escaping me right now, in addition to the kid from Detroit CC(Martin replacement!)

I really think we'll get Mcclure and Willingham, I'm not even that worried. MAttison has been in Willingham's ear and Mcclure has been recruited by Hokef or 2 years. Does he really think his future is better served playing for Tedford or Neuheisel than Hoke? Being friends with Leon Hall can't hurt us either. Willingham's other offers are pretty unimpressive, none are in UM's league if you ask me and he dropped A and M where his best friend went.

With those 2 hopefully in tow, I'll be curious to see who els we can get, beyond the Frank Clark types. I could see us stealing someone like Zettel or even Drew at DE  to be honest, or Cooper,Heyward or Jernigan at DT.

Glad we aren't going to take a WR(unless of course the class is short players at the last minute), we need the spots. Load up on D and OL. Not sure we even need Rawls, as we hae RBs.
