According to Coach Brown.  Hopefully we can get a commitment from one of them.

Mason Cole - 4* 2014 OT

Artavis Scott - 4* 2014 WR (high 90s in Rivals Top 100 today)

George Campbell - (Probable) 5* 2015 WR

 

Cole and Scott have said they want to be a package deal, both have visited previously. Cole has expressed the most interest out of the three. All go to the same high school in Tampa.

Getting him on campus this early is really good for Michigan.  Kid ran a 4.44 laser timed 40 at the UA Combine in St. Pete.  As a sophomore.  Which given all of the FAKE 40 times out there doesn't sound to impressive, until you realize that in 2012, out of the 16,000+ kids that ran a laser timed 40 at a Nike Combine, only 19 ran one under 4.5, and only 3 ran one under 4.4

I think people normally overplay the effect competition supposedly has on kids. When a recruiting site and tens of coaches across the country tell the kid that they're the sweetest thing since sliced bread, they believe them. 

At that point, they become significantly less concerned about the other dudes, assuming that they are the sliced bread their talents have replaced.

Or something like that.

But seriously, kids' egos normally get in the way of worrying about other highly touted players.

George Campbell is a 2015 guy so I doubt it would affect Drake Harris much.  Artavis scott is a 2014 guy and he might give Harris a little compeition, but I doubt Harris cares that much about competition when he's considering Alabama and Ohio as well.

Sunday the 24th, MBB is at home against Illinois.  Let's hope these three young gentlemen enjoy themselves and come away with a new-found appreciation for The University of Michigan.

From what I've heard, I don't think there is a chance any of them commit then. Cole *might* but I think he wants to take more time and visits, while ND probably leads for Scott and Campbell is a 2015 guy.

Also, the validity of these rumors may not be so good...Steve (Tremendous, now 247) posted on the Michigan247 board that Cole isn't sure if he will visit or not.
