Submitted by DGDestroys on December 16th, 2010 at 7:51 AM

NC LB Kris Frost was invited to the Shrine Bowl between the Carolinas this year...and did he ever show up. He was named to Chad Simmon's NC Top 7, and was thrown praise from the various analysts throughout the tournament

Kris Frost also hitting the edge fast in run, just made play on marquise williams from backside. (Mike Farrell)

The last two aren't from the Shrine Bowl, but refer to Butler's championship run.

Michigan recruit Kris Frost and his Butler Bulldogs took home the NC 4A state championship.. without star QB Christian Lemay all year

Without quoting precise passages, the analysts in the LiveBlog and in Insider articles were praising Frost's coverage ability, hit power, and closing speed.

As for recruiting..it looks like he'll be making his decision with his parents over the holidays, but still plans to announce at the Under Armour All American Game. His decision will be between UM, LSU, and Aub

Fun Note: Teammates said that Frost looks like a "Christmas Decoration". Do people agree, disagree?

Cooper stated he had a team mate go through the uncertainty of a possible coaching change and he wasn't going to do the same.  Walls was recruiting for us big time early on when things were going good.  With the coaching uncertainty and him planning on being an EE he committed to a school that went 5-7 last year.

If Cooper liked Michigan that much and it was only the coaching uncertainty, then he would have waited before dropping us.  I'm sick of people blaming DB for everything. 

Walls had stopped saying anything good about UM when he went to the west cost.  And he committed to a team who might be going through it's own coaching uncertainty if they go bowl-less again next year.

Frost would be a nice addition to this team, whether he plays WR or LB. I would love to see him at LB though with Kellen Jones and Desmond Morgan coming in to make this a nice LB class. Then hopefully get Lucien for WR.

Damn I hope we pull this kid...I was thinking about our LB depth earlier and, if we do employ a new DC next year, let's say one who runs a 4-3, where are we at with LBs?  Demens is a lock at MLB, but what about the 2 outside guys?  Mike Jones is all of 200 lbs, JB Fitzgerald hasn't shown us anything, ditto for Isaiah Bell, that leaves who?

For starters, I wouldn't discount Mike Jones just because of his size.  As a true sophomore he was #2 on the depth chart and saw PT until his injury.  He was a guy who saw the field as a true frosh too.  He's more like 210 right now than 200, but I wouldn't be surprised if he started at WILL this fall.  Also, JB Fitzgerald hasn't been a star by any means, but he started at the end of the year when Roh moved to DE.  He was OK, IIRC.

Outside of those two we still have Brandon Herron, who was playing a lot before his injury this year, and Cam Gordon, who will likely move to WILL and battle Mike Jones for that spot. 

So at the SAM, Herron and Fitzgerald are likely the top two and at WILL Cam Gordon and Mike Jones are our guys.  This doesn't include anyone like Isaiah Bell, Jake Ryan, or Josh Furman getting involved. 

EDIT:  I looked on the mgoblue roster and it lists Jones at 6'2" 208, and that's preseason.  Another year in the weight room and he'll be 215-220 easily, maybe 225.  For reference, All Big Ten OSU LB Brian Rolle is listed at 218.  You don't have to be huge to be a good LB.  Also on the roster, Furman is 208 and Gordon is 207.  They are 6'2" and 6'3", respectively.  All three of them should be good LB size by this fall, and assuming Jones gets his medical redshirt they will be two sophs and a freshman.

this is some of the stupidest shit I've ever read in my life. OOH Frost made a nice play in practice!!! He's gonna be a beast fo shizzle.

This takes me back to the days when Jeremy Gallon and Big Will were tearing up the practices in their post season all-star games: certified BEASTS!!!

Don't get me started on JT Turner, OMG tore up the all-star game practices, woulda got a sixth * if it weren't an NC double A violation.

How about when Kevin (dearly departed) Sousa was at a summer camp and threw 2 or 3 nice passes. Wow you got to be kidding, a top rated HS quarterback is capable of throwing a nice pass. Who knew?
