Rivals 250 Breakdown for 2013

Submitted by Gobluegr on February 9th, 2012 at 9:30 PM

Yesterday I broke down the Rivals 100 and today I broke down the Rivals 250. I only wrote about players who share a strong mutual interest with Michigan, and I talked about what Michigan's chances are based off what I have heard. There are about ten guys that I believe Michigan is either the outright leader or one of the leaders for. Rivals250 Breakdown

I've stated this before, but LTT (as the Mgoblog community says) will be a Wolverine. There is a proximity factor in this, but a recruit doesn't visit a school three times in a short time, if he isn't pretty damn sure about that school. I get the feeling he can't get enough of the campus and the staff, but he doesn't want to commit anytime soon, because he honestly wants to take his visits. Have you guys ever driven through the part of Illinois he's from? I'd want to see more of the country too.

It's a long way to go with LTT, and I can see the parallel to Diamond.  Time will only tell.  I though Diamond was all Blue for a while, but as soon as we landed Kalis and then Diamond's mom gave that interview where she said she was worried about the compatition, the back of my mind said we were done.  I know Jordan said he wasn't worried about that, and prehaps he really wasn'.  But when a parent comes out and publicly says something like that, it just doesn't look good.  Maybe it was just me.

IIRC, Diamond made a number of relatively early visits.  He did have a former team mate here to visit, but that didn't turn out as we'd hoped.

Still, I'd (optimistically) had some similar thoughts regarding LTT.  We'll see... (keeps fingers crossed awkwardly for the next 11.5 months)

seems like a TON of the top 250 like Michigan a lot. Even if we get a quarter of these guys we'll have a top 3 class. Great to see the hype. I sense this Alabama game could be worth A LOT more than just a win or loss.
