Patrick Kugler visit update

Submitted by randyfloyd on February 24th, 2012 at 11:25 PM

Rivals #54 overall prospect, Patrick Kugler visited Michigan today.  He enjoyed his visit so much that he tweeted "Wow Michigan was something special!", adding, #feelslikehome #GoBlue.  I think this kid would be a great final piece to the OL puzzle, this is how he describes his game.

"I think the main thing that sticks out about me now is just the style I play. I go to the whistle. I know not many kids now are mean on the field and I play my last play every play. That really stands out to coaches."

I highly doubt we get two more OL recruits. That would seriously limit what we could do with the defensive front seven for this class. I think we will definitely take one more this year and then start on a yearly pace of taking 4 per cycle after that.

Anyway, I just signed up. Been reading on here for a couple of weeks and thought it would be good to sign up. Hopefully after this upcoming season I will have to change my name!

Kugler would be a really nice add.  I have to believe his technique is advanced with all the tips he must get from his dad.

Go Blue, Patrick...soon.

He said, I know not many kids now are mean on the field.

No, just the kids Michigan brings in.  Seriously, it's as if every OL recruit we got in either 2012 or 2013, one of the points of emphasis is - plays with a nasty mean streak.  I like that.

Fuck, we're in on sooo many OL its tough to have to turn some of them down! In my fantasies we are able to take an extra OL and then trade him for a similarly rated WR or CB.

I have to assume it is a courtesy before he goes Blue.

Weird thing I read in the paper:  Dantonio won't be there because he is in California for a Nike function.  He won't be at MSU's Junior Day?  Anyone else heard this?  Should have let Hecklinski finish.

That lowercase R on his jersey bothers me. How come the R doesn't get the same treatment the other letters get. Maybe I have a soft spot for the letter because my name starts with it, but still, it's blatant letterism!
