Woohoo!!! Hopefully not the only RB flip of the day. It would be great if this kid's coach (michiganman14, I think?) could provide a closer look at his whirlwind last week or so of recruitment.

Congratulations, Karan!

HAIL YES!!! 

I really wanted this guy ever since I first heard about him. I was so happy when he got that offer, thanks in part to his coach's diligence and hard work. Also, no RB deserves to have AIRBHG inflicted upon them.

Welcome Karan!

Michigan just got one hell of a player and ambassador. We're extremely excited! My mission was to simply make him aware of what Michigan was and is about. We did that. Iowa did a phenomenal job with him and there was nothing negative about them. There was simply too much positive about Michigan. He cannot wait to bring some "Juice" to Ann Arbor!

Michigan just got a terrific kid in Karan.  Im trying to figure out how to post all the pictures on here now.  The recruitiment was clean, swift and genuine.  Coach Tyrone Wheatley was huge in this commitment.  It was tough because Iowa did a fantastic job and there was nothing negative about them.  Michigan just had more "juice" and the opportunity to come in and get into the rotation and bring some intensity and passion to the program was too much to pass up.  Karan is a 4 star talent and will surprise many of you.  Watch his Junior film and then realize that his Senior film features far less on the offensive line.  He averaged close to 8 yards a carry and runs with passion.  Some backs you watch and can enjoy their play.  Some backs you can feel.  I can say that from watching him in person time and time again that you will feel Karan Higdon play the game.  Very excited as you can tell.  I will try and share more with you guys soon.  Go Blue!

Dear MichiganMan14 - I cant find your original post where you talked about his charitable work and grades.  Did you erase it?  If not can you copy and paste here/ Thanks

wow.  Just watched his tape.  He has great instincts and vision, along with very quick feet.  He runs leaning forward which is great for YAC.  Reminds me a a bigger, faster Mike Hart. ;)

Seriously though he could be one hell of a pickup. His frame looks like he could stack 20lbs on it to get to 210 and still be fast Beast mode.

I am very excited to have him apart of the class. The fact that he committed before he knew whether Mike Weber was going to commit says a lot about his character as well. I can't wait to see him tote the rock.
