Welcome to the family Sione! We're glad to have you. Can't wait to see you start busting some linebackers up before they get to Morris or Dunn (speculation is awesome isn't it).

wants to play LB not FB IIRC.  I would have perferred two DTs in this class and skipped the FB, but the young man made a wise decision.  Welcome to the Michigan family.

We now have 6 spots left if they are going to get to 26.  Looks like there will only be 1-2 open spots left after a DT, OL, 1-2 WRs, and Wormley.

Gotta admit I was hoping for Fatu in that spot if only for the fun connections with his family of wrestling Samoans. Not surprised this staff wanted to take a fullback. Hope Houma is a good one.

Glad to have him, if not for the name but also it proves that the new staff is really going to put in the power run game, which really excites me.

Congrats Sione!

I was one who wanted EJ Fatu rather than Sione Houma, but after watching the film I liked that was always the lowest to the ground and always carried forward momentum.  That will be great in short-yardage situations. Although I would have liked to see more blocking than running (for a FB standpoint), I am not doubting that the coaches liked him enough to offer and accept his commitment in a tight class, and he will be a heck of a FB.

It's nice to see this kids ability to take it to the house. Based off of the film, it seems like he has good strength, speed, agility and quickness.  I am really looking forward to seeing how Coach Hoke will utilize this young man.

Does this mean "Goodbye 5* RB Dunn"?  I know the coaches wanted a FB, so um....yeah.  Hard call with such limited scholarships available, but they seem to have had a plan from the start.

It's very possible that Houma could put on 20-25 lbs in the next two years and be 235-240 by the time he's ready to contribute.
