Does it matter?  He has hardly contributed to anything significant.  I dont think it will help with scholarships this year, but playing and pratice time will be devoted to the younger WR's on the roster.....

Glasgow is absent that list but would make 88. If you add those numbers, it is 87, not 88 without Glasgow on it. Also, the black names are Year to year scholarships/ walk-ons. Harbaugh can choose not to renew them. There are a lot of walk on special teasers making up the back end of scholarships. How many punters do we need? Will JBB transfer? Easy to get down to limit by fall camp.

 but I don't see him staying around for what would be a normal senior season. He should have his degree by then inasmuch as he was allowed a lot of extra academic time this past season.. Couple that with the fact he proved, in a very short period of time, he was the most advanced route runner of all the freshmen - Bless that damn good h.s. coaching - and I believe in three years, 2018 included, Tarik will be one of the most desired wrs in the draft should he choose that option after the '20 season. 

I don't know how much weight to give to the Ollie rumors, but with the collection of wrs we have coming back with natural progression alone, both they and the qb position will look incredibly better in the year 2018 for the Michigan Wolverines.

issue, I really can't think of why he is not equal to better than Perry.

Too many people on here consider catching ability and getting open/ route running as what defines a reciever as good or not.  I'm with OP and others here that are brave enough to define who's better without caring about who can catch the ball or get open.

Perry runs excellent routes, is always open, and catches almost everything. His routes are better than DPJ's and Crawford's and his hands are at least better than Crawford. He led the team in receiving yards last year, so it's a bit ridiculous to even have this discussion. He has the most career receptions on the roster by a sizable margin.

No way in hell that Crawford is better than Perry as a WR. He runs faster, so can be better on the outside, but he's not. Crawford doesn't get open very well, has trouble catching the ball anywhere, and can't be relied on at all. Perry can do all of things, and is a valuable safety net on 3rd downs. I'll take Perry over Crawford every time.

Let's hope we don't have to choose, and that 'rumors' aren't true.

While I may come off as an ass trying to defend a molestor for posting this, we let the process work itself out, and after reviewing all the documents through FOIA etc, its clear his only issue was in trying to slip away from the police once they got there. Please don't make unsupported statements. It's almost certain that he was only guilty of trying to get away from the police. 

While I'm 100% for anyone's right to complain about molestation of any kind, it was good he was removed from all team activities until the investigation established what happened, and had there been any evidence that he did it he should have been off the team permanently, the facts of the matter were fairly simple, below.

1) the girl's story was extremely inconsistent as to where he touched her, as in night and day.

2) she (MSU student prior to the UM game) admitted to knowing who he was (UM football player) and that she was pissed at him for taunting her as a MSU student before she claimed he touched her

3) it allegedly happend right in front of the bouncer as the bouncer was trying to get Perry to the back of the line. (Bouncer did not see anything)

4) it happened right next to the girls friends who also did not see anything

5) it happened right in front of several cameras that also did not display any contact

6) Perry also didn't leave when the bouncer/bar said they were going to call the cops as he didn't feel he did anything wrong. It was only after he felt the police were going to take him in maybe that he got scared. (Not sure I 100% blame him in this environment).

7) EL PD covertly recorded Perry talking on the phone to his family, and while he was clear that he messed up in trying to get away from the police, he was insistent that he did not touch the girl. 

No reasonable prosecutor would even have brought that case.

In the case of MSU and RCMB, the unfortunate precedent and consistent nature of the actions of their athletes and the atheltic departments willingness to cover everything up would tend to give support to a different line of thinking, no?
