2 tomorrow. Ojabo and maybe Sainristil, though i've heard Giles Jackson's name thrown out as well.

1 Tuesday. Quinten Johnson

Very interested to see what happens with Giles Jackson and Wandale Robinson. Both are APB but could be recruited as just slot receivers or offensive weapons in general.

He’s listed as a DB, but according to Sam Webb, he’s being recruited as a slot. 

The only other RB take is Crouch, and he’s defense first. Sainristil, Jackson, and Robinson are all slot types. 

My guess is that ROBINSON will look elsewhere after Gray's commitment. Sainristil is a former teammate of Lewis Cine, and both he and Jackson are amazing athletes. Would love to have them both if we have room.

The 2019 class really signals the move to a modern offense.

Upon further review, just found out Eric kinda wanted to be a buckeye but I guess Urbz thought there were so many RBs in Fla and Tex and it would be a shame not to offer all of them, so no room for a guy whose Uncle played for them.

Scorned RB, running behind scorned guards, coached by a scorned Oline coach. Here they come, Columbus, and fury comes with them.

This is so awesome!  Welcome Eric!!!  I cant wait to see you and Zach run wild at the Big House!  

And on behalf of JayBaugh and the entire staff, I would like to give a big F&ck You to all the concern trolls who will probably be silent tonight.  Albatross won’t post here again for 2 months.

I wasn't trying to be a concern troll, but I was definitely concerned, and I think it was justified.

Here's what I remember was going on: Michigan was racking up the 3-stars (and below) fairly early in the 2019/2020 cycle. Dixon, a guy who fit the much-hyped Viper role, was trending hard to Penn State, and it looked like (and still looks like) Michigan would miss on both in-state 5 star OTs. That's pretty dire stuff.

...and then Zach Charbonnet commits from out of the blue (not even Sam saw it coming), with most CBs projecting him to USC, leading to a cascade of pretty good news culminating in this announcement.

YES! Gray and Charbonnet make for an amazing RB class.

Gray has speed, agility, vision, strength, and great hands. I expect he will contribute as a freshman and make his mark as one of the great Michigan RBs before his time is done. 

So glad he chose Michigan! GO BLUE!

One day he will rise up and throw down his enemy, and he will fall from the high place and break the mountainside, where he will smite it in his ruin. And then he will be Eric [the] White.

His film looks great.  This isn't Derrick Green... we seem to have gotten an uptick in RB recruiting. Shit it only took over a decade....

All I need to know about the kid is that Alabama was pursuing him. They only go after top quality RBs and are pretty good at scouting them out. Seems like we got a really good one

Incredible pickup -  Two elite backs, arguably the top two on the wish list for RBs across the country for our staff!

The gaudy HS numbers and ridiculous highlights are too much fun. The future is bright in Ann Arbor! 😎

As he reminds me a bit of JK Dobbins, I was very surprised to learn that OSU chose not to offer him, especially considering his father played there.

How far are we away from a full recruiting class. I thought we had only 18 spots for 2019. Attrition could open a few more. If Shea and the OL perform well, Michigan could win the B1G and make the playoffs. If this were to happen a lot more top ranked recruits will want to sign. Any ways Eric Gray is a great pickup at RB. Welcome aboard Eric!
