Michael Taylor

After watching yesterday's UA All-Star Game, we need to keep working hard to SNAKE OIL Michael Taylor from his Tennessee commitment. He was the beast MLB we are desperately missing, and I would put him as important as closing Sean Parker or any other outstanding recruit at this point. Imagining him and Furman roaming the field together gives me a semi.

is the alum QB from the late 80's. Nothing is written in stone until Signing Day but this kid was quoted yesterday as really looking forward to being on campus (TN's campus). I don't think he'll be wearing a winged helmet,

The Michael Taylor who played QB at UM would have fit into this offense extremely well. His only problem was that his hands were too small to get great leverage on a football. He had a rifle-arm on the baseball field, but couldn't get velocity on a pass to save his life.

Despite that, he still found a way to move the ball when he played. He was very fast and extremely intelligent. If he had larger hands, he may have won a Heisman and a National Championship. He was that good.

I hate to say it, but we really need some beastly linebackers like OSU. I'd kill to have the defense they have. If we combined our offense with their defense, *cringe*

From what I read on most recruiting sites Michigan is supposedly still very in his recruitment and one of the sites even said he was NOT solidly committed despite his comments in the interview. I'd honestly trade him and Hankins for the Grimes / Murphy combo. Not that they aren't good players or I wouldn't be excited to have them, I just think we need the other two more at this point.

I dont think he ends up coming here, but I would be ecstatic if he choose M. Hes a true LB and thats something that we dont have in this class.
