I was watching some film on some new england guys and I was watching 2020 CT QB Drew Pyne, cousin of 2020 OT Kevin Pyne, and that kid looks ultra talented. Michigan has not offered yet, and I am hoping they do really soon. Watch his film and you'll understand why I posted this.

Hey Magnus, I was on your site and read that Sandidge cancelled his OV this weekend. It’s probably been discussed on here, but it’s the first I’ve heard about it. Do you have anything posted on who we are still chasing for the 2018 class? I’m curious to see how you think we finish and how many more guys we will take.

I haven't posted anything on it specifically, but it's basically down to these guys:

OT Jarrett Patterson
OT Nick Petit-Frere
OT (transfer) Calvin Anderson
K Jake Moody (grayshirt)

I haven't seen anything that makes me think they're thinking about sending out new offers here in the last couple weeks, but some of those offers come out of the blue, anyway. (And perhaps that's planned so other teams can't swoop in.) I think Michigan would take all three of those OL prospects if they can get them, but that's unlikely.

I think Michigan will get Patterson and Moody. Anderson will probably end up at Texas, and Petit-Frere will end up somewhere else.

From small town Paw Paw in SW Michigan. Same high school as former NFL defensive end Jason Babin. Competition level will always be in question with him. He played TE this past year, but is definitely an O-Line prospect in college.

I know Devontae Dobbs is highly rated as an offensive tackle, but how would he be as a DT? He may be too short for a tackle at the college level and he's listed as OT/DT on his twitter page
