could get offered but down the line, maybe camp offers.

Cass Tech olineman and Dlineman have a shot....dt poet thomas has a shot........and a couple other instate oline if they are late bloomers.......

Dillard imo, if you think he can play for Michigan then go after him hard, go win the fight!  Elmer going to nd early helps as it stops you from focusing on him for 6 months only to lose him to nd, but I thought it was obvious early to the staff he was a longshot at best.

Magnus, you're write was great and I enjoyed it but one piece was missing for me and that was your take on J. Lewis (the Cass Tech DB). I am wondering how you would compare him to the previous DB;'s out of Cass Tech (Mathis, Hollowell, Richardson, Cissoko etc). He seems to be of the same mold size wise (though a little bigger) I remember earlier last season you had said that Richardson was the best CB prospect to come out of cass tech to that point and I am wondering how you see Lewis stacking up?

I'm still undecided about Lewis.  His highlight film is really bad and it's full of special teams/offensive highlights more than defensive highlights.  He's a very good athlete, has good speed, etc.  I want to see a little more of him before I formulate a strong opinion, but I would say he's around Richardson's level.  I like him more than Hollowell, Mathis, and Cissoko.

I'd have to guess we won't be signing nearly the number of in-state players this year.  Looks like the coaches will be getting more frequent flier miles this year!  Edwards will be a bit of a dilemma for the coaches given his size and having Hayes and Norfleet in house already.  It's interesting to see Antonio Bass's younger brother on the list.  Makes me think about what might have been with the elder Bass.  But, I don't see us offering him.  Thanks for the great update!
