Michigan can take up to 7 more players in this class per Sam Webb

I don't know how this is possible considering that would give us 29 players in this class which I thought was not allowed by the B1G. 28 was the reported limit but I trust Sam. The ideal finish to this class would be Green, Treadwell, Dawson, McQuay, Hill, Hunt, and Jaynard Bostwick.

now make more sense.  Well, this adds a lot of interest to a process that seemed essentially done with 6 months ago, except for the 2-3 five stars we were trying to land.

FWIW, I have heard rumors about two guys currently on the roster who might not be around in the spring.  (This does not include Lewan or Miller.)

It seems like with Lacy, Na'ty Rogers, and Hunt all rescheduling their planned visit, I think they're scared Dawson's going to commit and don't want to burn their current bridges visiting Michigan for a slot that may or may not exist.

Dawson will probably take his visits to Alabama and Ohio State. As has been said many times before, he has been through a lot on and off the field, and in addition to all that, he has taken a lot of criticism to try to get those visits. The good money seems to be that he recommits to Michigan after those visits.

We may also take Dan Skipper, because Hoke apparently believes it's impossible to be too tall.

Visited McQuay this week again and I got a funny feeling that If we get McQuay then were gonna get Green too. Just a gut feeling on my part. McQuay and Dimonte would be unreal!!!

It's gonna be a steamroll affect w Treadwell filling the end. Or we miss out on all 3

If he can keep his place as a top 10 pick, I don't see why he'd stay? And if Michigan only accepts smart kids, then Lewan is gone because only dumb kids would turn down that amount of money to risk another year of unpaid college football.

That team had an experienced QB, RB, WRs and line coming back.  Not much was going to change with the team. Lewan would be coming back to a team with a new QB, no sure fire RB or WR and a depeleted OL.

Again, all things point to Lewan leaving. Great if he stays but if I am in his entourage, I tell him to move on to the NFL assuming he's a top 10 pick.

Jake Ryan? I highly doubt it champ. Next year yes, this year he wouldn't even be drafted.

And how soon you forget that Jake Long had the same situation in front of him and he turned down the NFL and became the first pick with even more guaranteed money the next year. Gotta remember Lewan can't go to the senior bowl, so that might hurt his stock while others rise. Lewan staying is very probable.

Well if we were taking so many I would like to see michigan grab..

1. Derrick Green

2. David Dawson

3. L. McQuay / D. Hill / R. Dawson

4. L. McQuay / D. Hill / R. Dawson

5. Linebacker...who would people like to see here?

6. Offensive/Defensive Lineman?

Isn't this just the difference between "can" and "will"? Teams, thanks to medical redshirts and early admissions, can often find ways to cram in an extra recruit or two. (Except when they're SEC teams -- in which case, an extra seven or ten). To take more than 25 this year would just make next year trickier? Or is there some assumption here that attrition will be greater than expected?

I would say simplest answer is until we win something and Hoke's first class graduates recruiting will be tricky every year.

They have urgency and seem to be taking the best now. I like it. We need more talent plain and simple. They are trying to go get some.

My preference in order:

1. Treadwell (we need gamebreakers)

2. Green (err we need gamebreakers).

3. Dawson (my favorite recruit).

I don't care who else we get as long as those three are in the class. Sadly it doesn't appear to be in the cards. We'd be lucky to grab 2 of them...


December 14th, 2012 at 12:30 PM ^

USC this weekend but its supposed to rain here so that's good on that front. But I sure want McQuay Green and Treadwell. 2 of the 3 would be just awesome.


December 14th, 2012 at 12:47 PM ^

What do we look like as far as nose tackle depth? Pipkins is only big name nose tackle that I can remember getting. More 4/5 star nose tackles please! Mattison talks about rotating players, but with the lack of a pass rush I'm concerned about the talent he's had available so far.


December 14th, 2012 at 12:49 PM ^

The consensus says we need another Linebacker..Who though? I would like to grab Reschke, but that doesn't seem possible. WHO are the best options that the MgoCommunity like?
