I would say it's a good day to be a Wolverine

But it's always a good day to be a Wolverine.

I would say then, that it is a gooder day to be a Wolverine.

But that would be grammatically incorrect, more akin to bucknuts, rather than MGoBlog.

So I'm just going to sit here smugly, enjoying the awesomeness that is this fine sunday evening.

One more WR spot available, I don't know if it'll affect Diggs, but maybe Payton and Chesson? It'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

Darboh is the real deal, HUGE get! I think he'll get some run next year behind Roundtree.

Alright, welcome Amara! Can't wait to see 'Darboh' on the back of a Michigan jersey, I have a feeling it's going to look amazing.

It's only a matter of time now for the last few spots, this class is closing up nicely.

Hopefully Amara can follow in the footsteps of the last Iowa High School receiver to head to Michigan (Yo, Adrian Arrington, minus the "off-the-field" issues)

From the hello post on the front page:


The civil unrest that erupted in the Republic of Sierra Leone in 1991initiated the near eleven year war that swept through the country, threatening the lives of residents. In the capital, Freetown, Amara Darboh was just 2-years-old when his father and mother, Solimon and Kadita, were killed during a surge of violence. His father was a member in the military and after his parents’ deaths, he had few options.

Left in the care of surviving family members, their only choice was to flee. Amara spent the next several years living in Gambia and Senegal as a refugee. Life looked bleak for little Amara who had lost his parents and was unable to return home because of the ongoing civil war. Where was he to go if not back home?

The first seven years of his life were spent surviving life and death situations, education seemed impossible, and the hope for a better future was non-existent.

But when Amara was 7-years-old, an unexpected and seemingly impossible event happened. “It was a refugee program. We randomly got picked to come to Des Moines,” he told the Des Moines Register.

Welcome to the family Amara! You will love Ann Arbor and the entire Michigan football experience.

This kids story in unbelievable and is truly one of my favorite commits now. This is Michael Oher type stuff and everyone who hasn't read about him should. I can't find the link right now although I'm looking for it from a previous thread a few months back. 

Great day to be a Michigan fan!

Here's another update on WR recruit we're in on... 



"Thumbs up to Amara! I am still going to keep the same timeline for my commitment, this just gives me a larger incentive to commit to Michigan. I will still keep my word to Iowa and visit though."

Chesson also mentioned Wolverine coach Jeff Hecklinski has been by for an in-home visit and has planned another one this week.
