Steve Lorenz CB's 2019 4* OLB Miami commit Anthony Solomon to Michigan

Submitted by njvictor on November 27th, 2018 at 10:04 AM

83% of crystal balls now have Solomon flipping to Michigan and this could've been the source of Dudek and Petzold's commit watch signals. Solomon is a 4* OLB, #195 in the country in the 247 composite and #395 in 247's internal rankings

 We are all still sitting on the edge of our seats from multiple commit watch posts yesterday.   Adding Solomon would indeed be good news! I wonder if this is the Huge commitment that was being discussed and tweeted about yesterday?

That Crystal Ball is from April of 2017. He just never changed it when Solomon committed to Miami. Steve Wiltfong is the one who put his CB in yesterday. Still probably means the same thing, but Wiltfong's is the only recent prediction.

I wonder how accurate his times are. If you run a 4.24 shuttle, your 40 time is usually closer than 4.8. It used to be whenever I would see both numbers posted, the 40 was almost exactly .3  slower than the shuttle.

His measurables must have changed. 6-0, 190 sounds like a projected safety more so than a linebacker.

“Don Brown laid out a presentation and he basically compared me to (Jabrill Peppers),” Johnson said. “They want me to go the same route as Jabrill did and play at rover, and then work my way to that viper position.

“They said if I pick it up pretty fast I would go to viper, and if not I would start out at rover and then go to viper. They want me to be as similar to Jabrill Peppers as I can.”

Fair enough, but it seems like every, LB, Safety and "athlete" they recruit talks about playing Viper. It's the glamour position on this defense so it seems that everyone who's interested might get some encouragement. It reminds me of the Buck position when Durkin was here. Every LB and DE we recruited talked about playing it.

I find it hard to read that quote and not think that Plan A for Pesek-Hickson is safety.

After this recruiting cycle I believe the defense will be about the same as last year....hopefully with more speed from the defensive backs. (Solomon, hill, Perry, Hinton, Harrison - get all hopefully)

offense (if Patterson and bredneson stay) should be improved even more.

the sky is not falling people. We have ND, MSU and OSU at home. Away against a weaker PSU and Wisconsin. No reason not to be 9-2,10-1, or 11-0 going against OSU for the East.

Possibly related question:

I think way more of our defensive success these past three years has been because of Bush rather than Don Brown.

Who/how are we going to replace Bush, as I expect him to also go to the NFL?

Bush is a great player, but Browns defense has been great even without him. His first year (2016), Bush was a freshman and didn’t play much but Brown still had a top defense. Same at Boston College

As for replacing him, it will probably be a combination of Josh Ross and Jordan Anthony, with Devin Gill and Cam McGrone manning the Will spot
