Ohio North-South Classic

Ohio North-South Classic at 4pm today.  I don't think there is any TV coverage, but some writers are live tweeting it like Marc Givler from Buckeye Grove:


Willie Henry, Allen Gant, Tom Strobel (North) and AJ Williams (South) are playing in the game along with a host of other recruits from Ohio and Sparty.  Other players of note to Michigan fans: former Michigan commit Caleb Stacey and Sam Grant.

Here is a link to the rosters:

Sparty QB O'Connor with 40 yd pass to get South inside the 10 yd line.  North defense holds after Nebraska's McMullen sacked O'Connor on 3rd down & Goal and South forced to kick FG.  South 10-6.

Buffalo recruit scores on an 88 yard run and Eastern Michigan recruit catches 21 yard pass in 4th qtr to win it for the North with both plays coming against Ohio DB recruit Murray.  Willie Henry scored on a 2 pt conversion run (how as a DT he ended up running the ball I have no idea and interested to find out in a game recap).

With 3 of our 4 commits in the game playing defense for the North, I guess a low scoring defense dominating win is a good result.

Some info on Michigan's players on Twitter:  As stated above, Willie Henry made some key plays.  Also this from Scout.com:

Really like how OL signee A.J. Williams moves
