Michigan offers JUCO(!) WR Mark Munson edit: false alarm

VERY interesting.....

Munson is a WR from Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, CA.

Michigan has only had 3 JUCOs in their history. Michael Kerr, Russell Shaw and Austin Panter.


Just got off the phone with Michigan, yeah they offered  #goblue

Actually, I think he was in the class of 2010, at least according to Rivals. It is a bit odd, but after ready this article, he sounds pretty well spoken, and he is carrying a near 4.0 GPA at Orange Coast College. He broke his leg in his senior year of high school, which set him back initially.

Good find, thanks.  For those who don't click thru 6'2, 205 with supposed 4.43, "fllirting with a 4.0" this past semester with 4 classes (yes its JUCO but you could float through with a 2.7 if you want to just play football).

Sounds like only 1 year of eligibility but this is what we need at WR - a stop gap while all these young guys develop.

Let's see if there is any confirmation of this other than from the source.

if he is a 1 year guy we must see him as an instant impact type. there would be no reason to sign him if we only see special teams potential. pretty interesting recruit


and 1 year is actually perfect isnt it? that will give us more room in the next class to eventually even out each recruiting cycle a little bit

I wonder if offering JUCOs will be a standard Harbaugh practice or if it's just something he's doing this year with limited time to woo recruits. I'd be fine if we started taking JUCOs every now and then.

Played a year of D3 in 11 which means his 5 year clock started ticking then. Harbaugh must believe this kid can make an IMMEDIATE impact. Not doubting Coach Harbaugh though

This very well could be true, but looking at his Twitter today he literally tweeted his own highlight film to Drevno. To me that seems kind of... odd.

I halfway wonder if he's just messing around. Would like to see something more official before we start assuming JUCO's are back on the market.
