Michigan makes the Top 10 for Keith Marshall

Submitted by RioThaN on April 5th, 2011 at 3:41 PM

Benji from http://mgorecruit.blogspot.com tweeted it earlier today, and I saw Keith's profile from scout http://michigan.scout.com/a.z?s=162&p=8&c=1&nid=4705843 it seems like we're in his top 12ish, I realize he's still a longshot, but I'm glad to see we're hanging in there with a handful of nicely rated recruits, that's the first step to get them, come February I foresee a really nice class

This is great news. Despite him being a long shot, hearing interest in our team and the positive remarks after visits is great news. But we no longer have the snake oil, so Hoke's going to have to find another way to poach top recruits on signing day.

I love how the anonymous cowards neg opinions soley because they're different from their own. More specifically, I bet that the anonymous cowards would all wax rhapsodic about how awesome the 1997 team was, and would goose themselves over how dominating the defense was. They won't mention that our RBs on that team were hardly game-breakers. Yet when someone suggests that perhaps a dominant defensive lineman or LB might be more valuable than a top-flight RB with respect to winning a NC, the negs come out.

I've been following recruiting for a probably like 5-6ish years now, and I haven't once seen an early-stated package deal that actually came to fruition. The closest thing I've seen is probably Dee Hart and Hasean Clinton-Dix going to Alabama, but they never expressly stated that they'd be attending the same school.

With Diggs and Brown, it seems more likely than the usual package deal, but I'd still bet that it doesn't happen.

will put them in a lot of top 10s. It's gonna take some savvy work from Greg "the Magic Man" Mattison to land some of these upper echelon recruits.

I posted this in the other thread, but I've talked to a lot of people close to Keith, and right now it's a pretty solid North Carolina/Georgia battle.

Obviously a lot could (and will) likely change, but in the last month Keith has visited UNC 4 times and Georgia 4 times..
