TomVH: DT Aziz Shittu & **DT Ondre Pipkins Offered

Submitted by TomVH on February 21st, 2011 at 3:20 PM

California DT Aziz Shittu (6'2", 280 lbs) was just offered by Michigan. He had been in contact with Coach Ferrigno, and talked to Coach Mattison today. Besides having an awesome name, his film is pretty impressive as well. You can take a look here

Shittu also has offers from Arizona, UCLA, Stanford, and Washington among others. He says he doesn't have a top group yet, but Stanford is a school that sticks out so far. He reports a 3.8 GPA, so academics will be in consideration.

Here's what he had to say about the offer:

I'm pumped. I just talked to Coach Mattison and he said I'm what they need at Michigan. He likes the way I play, and they offered. [Mattison] has coached at the highest level, so he knows what he's talking about.

Former Saginaw, current Missouri DT Ondre Pipkins was also offered today. Here's what he had to say about the offer:

This is a big offer, most definitely. They were telling me that they want me up there bad. I'll try to get up there in the summer if not mid March. It's great to have the offer, with the new defensive coordinator it means they'll have a tough  hard nose defense. Michigan is definitely in my top five.

I think the post you've responded to was intended to be sarcastic. The fellow wouldn't really tell the tattooed woman in the Michigan underpants to put her shirt back on. He feels scornful of the other poster who said he disliked tattoos.

Don't worry, just another 56 posts to go and you'll become a "trusted" user.  That means you can use the voting system and start new threads, plus you won't have to type in a code every time you want to post.

As much as I supported R.R., It's clear he had the defense in ruins.  It's nice to see all this interest in Michigan again.  No big name players were going to come play for an unstable coordinator in a 3-4etc.
