Im not going to make a judgement based off of his lack of a smile. It seems most of his pictures he isnt smiling.

For crying outloud he has a picture uploaded from his visit to Lousiville in which he's holding the Heisman trophy and he isnt smiling in that either.

He's a highschooler. Many highschoolers are still in that "Gotta look tough" phase

I'm sure Becton knows he's a fall back choice for Michigan, as is Oliver Martin. I don't know how those guys feel about it, but it would be a factor I would consider, if I were in their position.

Not sure this is true.  Going way back to Nov/Dec, Sam was indicating that the staff was really high on Becton (when it appeared we were cooling on Banks slightly) but he would not be deciding until 2017.  So the indication was Michigan was going to go hard after certain prospects and there might not be room for Becton but I wouldn't label him as a fall-back because the staff wanted him if they still had a spot.

Of course that assumes Sam's story was accurate but it seems reasonable considering Leatherwood, Willis and Wilson were all solid possibilities at that time.  It doesn't mean that Becton is Plan B it just means Michigan is in on a banch of great players and they would not "save a spot" for him.

I don't think Becton was Virginia Tech's first or second choice either.  I do not think Oliver was ND or MSU's top choice.  Its up to sour face (Becton) and Oliver to make their decisions based on the fact they were not many teams first choice.  That's football and most players though.  Doesn't mean they are not any good, because they are very good.
