I was told last night that Shea and Anderson will announce their commitments before they leave today, and that both are going to enroll in January. John Falk was at the hoops game and was giving all the recruits a tour of the locker room. One of the parents (not sure who) said they have never seen anything like the red carpet Michigan rolls out.
I asked about VJ as well. Was told that they did not have a great read on VJ like they did the other two. Also VJ had some friends and family visiting him from his Saint Mary's days, he was yucking it up with Bigs 2.0, and I thought he was having a great time and would be coming as well. I did talk directly to him and wished him well, I have not seen him since 2015 and he has grown and bulked up, he told me that his dad had Megatron visit the dolphins practice a few times this year, and that his father still keeps in touch with CJ as well as many other lions players and coaches. He also said he misses being in the D, and he was not sure if he was going to go on any more visits, but did admit many schools reaching out. One other thing that did happen during the game: Nico, DPJ, and Black rolled in late all together and I must admit they looked like 3 NFL players, also looked like great friends.
Lastly, in regards to Barrett and Patterson (OL). I did not see much of them, I think Barrett arrived late and was doing pictures and some catching up. Patterson I never saw, but I think he was with the coaches and at Schem Hall. All the attention was on Casear and the group of guys he was running around with that included Shea and others.
The vibe at Crisler and around lunch and dinner was awesome. They may all commit (5), but the coaches have been told for a fact that Anderson and Shea are in and enrolling early.
One last thing. The coaches, on JH orders are being very careful with the Ole Miss kids. When in doubt refer to compliance, and this may have something to do with why Shea and Anderson have not made it offical yet. Not saying that for sure, but they are all being extra careful. Yesterday, I saw 3x the coaches and staff huddle up to talk about something in regards to the recruits etc.
