I respect his coach and family wanting him to take it slow, but we might only take two receivers in this class, and with Sugar Shane (and our coaching staff) recruiting a lot of top players, those spots won't last forever.  I think Dukes is a good player, but I don't know if he's a "we'll save a spot for you no matter how long you wait" type of player.

But only a little surprised, right?  When you look at the breakdown, if we take a class of 22, that's one guy per spot on O and D.  If we take three receivers in 2013, that means there are other position groups where we'd have to take fewer. 

I doubt we take fewer than 4 DL, or fewer than 4 DBs, or fewer than 5 OL if we don't get Kozan.  We have one QB (and we might take another), we'll take 2 RBs and 2 TEs.  That's 18, which leaves room for 2 WR and 2 LBs, assuming we don't take a second QB.  We might take 3 WRs, but I'm not sure where we get the other spot from unless the class grows above 22.  Which it certainly may.

Couldn't 4 OL be sufficient with the number we took this year plus the two monstrous walkons we've taken in the last two classes? Seems to me with that many young guys, as long as you keep filling the line with 4 more guys each year the depth issue will be solved pretty quickly.  I don't know much about this though.  I'm just curious.

I love how right after I pay for the ESPN insider for a year you guys at Tremendous come out and are giving pretty well the same info for free. You guys are doing a great job. Between you, all the guys here and TomVH we are lucky fans

I think this fits hoke's requirement of a "fanatical" approach to recruiting guys who are Michigan Men.  Kids like this with love for the program are exactly the type we need.  All be it few and far between that they are this open about it and shed their ego's, this gives me great hope for 2013 wr core.  As always, tremendous another reason i don't have to pay for any info.

Thanks Aqua!  Keep up the great work!  Also, Jaron sounds like a great kid.  Like others have said, I love getting talented, tall WR's, but I love it even more when they truly have a love for Michigan like Jaron.  Go BLUE!

Seems ridiculous to me that they're making him wait to commit.  If they're talking about waiting for a week or so, ok.  But any longer than that seems stupid given how much he has always loved the school.

"He went down on the 50-yard line and laid down on it, looking up at the sky. When I talked to Jaron on Tuesday, this is what he told me he wanted to do more than anything."

It must be amazing to go to your dream school and just lay on the field. I really hope we get him. Taking him out of Columbus would be great. Great work Aquaman. As usual.

Good to see someone from my "HOOD" make it to the next level, hope he stays away from Darth Maul, cause these idiots hear in Columbus think he's GOD, and he shits gold bar's.
