In all the excitement we've had yesterday ... the coaches sent out five new offers I've seen in various boards

OG Brendan Mahon


CB Priest Willis


TE Durham Symthe


ATH Sebastian LaRue


WR Demorea Stringfellow



Looks like the recruiting team isn't taking a breath as the offers keep going out!

When coaches make an offer, do they specify whether the offer is committable vs non-committable?  How is a prospect supposed to know whether an offer is committable or not?  At what point does a non-committable offer become committable?

It would be rather awkward if a coach makes a non-committable offer and a prospect accepts on the spot, only to find out that the offer was non-committable.

they all start as committable. When time passes and the number of remaining spots dwindles, the coaches start to get picky. They may ignore someone while focusing on someone else. If an offer has cooled and the player tries to commit, I believe then they may ask them to hold off. Offers for spots that are filled become non-committable once no more spots remain.

But if a guy tries to commit right when he is offered, I believe it would be accepted every time. It's when one waits that one takes a risk.

Magnum P.I.

Does anyone have any sense as to which WR recruits have a real interest in Michigan. It's one of our biggest needs, and we've offered a lot of big names, but the only guys that I've read about who have indicated interest in U-M are Treadwell, Dukes, and (kind of) Devon Allen. 

Have any of the other WR offerees made plans for visiting or otherwise shown interest (Rivals rankings)?

  • Sebastian Larue ****
  • James Onwualu
  • Zach Bradshaw
  • Richard Benjamin
  • Rob Wheelwright
  • Kevin Gladney

James Onwualu, who ACE has interviewed a couple of times, indicated that he will visit Michigan. He wants to major in business, so I could see us shooting up for him. I'm not sure about any of the other guys. We are in good position with Dukes and Treadwell, so this shouldn't really keep you up at night.

Also, we haven't offered him, but De'Niro Laster is a WR from the Cleveland area that is visiting on Monday who could commit if we offer. We might hold on and wait to see how things unfold with other players, but Laster grew up a Michigan fan and has high interest in the Maize and Blue. 

I don't think there's anything to worry about at this point.

EDIT: DGDestroys did a run through of WR prospects and our chances on Thursday:

Lots of offers / commitments for OG and OT but no centers.  Am I missing something?  Are centers more often created (from other OL positions), or is it common to see them recruited specifically as a center?


February 19th, 2012 at 12:14 PM ^

Pardon my ignorance, but I never knew there was such a thing as a "non-committable" offer.  What exactly makes it an offer if the recruit can't accept it?  When CAN they accept it?  Thanks.

the 3 ol commits definitely affect some of the outstandings "offers" but we most certainly will take at least 5 and maybe more OLs in this class.

Just saw a retweet from Tremendous from 2013 recruit Jake Butt, who said he's going to have lunch with his dad and then make a "key phone call". Maybe 7th recruit of the weekend?
