I am so impressed with Mr. Chesson's attitude and outlook on his football future and beyond.  I am really excited to see him and Mr. Darboh burst on the scene this fall.  I think they will push each other to greatness.  It's also good to hear that another recruit has some explosion in the kick return game.

It is good to see the young man has his priorities in order and it is obvious he has done his homework on Michigan and its tradition. He will be a fine representative of the university and hopefully a even better player for Michigan!

I'm very impressed with how mature this kid is at this stage of his life. He will more than fit the standards of what a Michigan football player is all about. Hoke not only knows how to bring in talented kids, but he also brings in kids with tremendous character. Hats off to him and the coaching staff.

In reading the aritilce on TTB, there is mention of Jehu running track and lists his time in the 300m Hurdles at  37.44. I looked up last years large school (class 3A) champion in that event here in Illinois and found that 37.60 won the state meet. So, I thought.....wonder how Jehu did at the Missouri High School State Finals....1st place!


300mH-36" 11 Jehu Chesson II 37.44


Anyone that knows a little about T&F knows that the 300m Hurdles is a very tough race and usually the guys running  those kind of times have an excellent blend of speed, strength and toughness. All very good attributes for a WR at Michigan. 

BTW, RGIII ran the 300m Hurdles in High School...pretty darn fast as he was only one-hundredth of a second short of breaking the national high school record. He also ran the 400m Hurdles for a time when he arrived at Baylor, until football took over his time in the spring.
