Ty Issac visiting Michigan Soon

Submitted by Gobluegr on February 25th, 2012 at 9:44 PM

Ty Issac talked with Aquaman tonight and he told him among other things that he plans on visiting Michigan on March 10. You can see the full update on Issac HERE

So we can expect a commitment on the 10th then? I don't know if I can wait that long! It would be nice to get him and Treadwell locked up so that they can focus on the defensive front seven.

He needs to get it over with, I've been saying he's the best players/team fit in college football recruiting. He'd be foolish to pass up this opportunity, and I think he knows that. It's almost redundant to say this now, but my God, look at who he'd be running behind in 2 years?

Well, this is pure speculation, and this will be based upon just word of mouth at this point. That being said however:

Landon Collins will see the field, due to the loss of several players in the defensive backfield

T.J. Yeldon-The kid has a body structure that is ready to carry the ball in the SEC, and we all know how talented he is.

Chris Black- If he pulls his head out of his ass, he should see the field.

Amari Cooper- Ready to contribute now

Eddie Williams (Of course)- The guy can do so much, you'd be hard pressed to keep him off the field


Brandon Green- Big thick kid, could see a rotation at right tackle


Alabama is simply loaded right now, so it's hard to speculate who will play. Saban is tough on his freshies, but he also gets the most out of them.


Also, I love Dakota Ball, but he'll need a RS year. Denzell Devall has been getting a lot of buzz, so that's a name too. Cyrus Jones is VERY talented, and he'll see the field, I'm just not sure how much production we'll see.

You know I would like to think how good it is for us that so many freshmen might see the field for you guys, but you have so much talent that honestly it's probably not going to be that much of a difference.  So what would you consider your strengths going into the game?  I'd say right now M's is Denard, RB, and OL.  Honestly I am not sure what on our defense will be a strength.  I think we have some talented players on defense, I just am not sure who continues to develop.  I think Countess takes a big step forward this year, and Kovacs is definitely a strength as well.  As for weaknesses, I think we may have trouble finding a playmaker at receiver, and I am worried about the center of our Dline.

Would love to see LTT, Bosch, Shallman and Shane make the trip to AA that weekend as well.  Nothing like getting to know the guys who will be blocking for you and handing the ball off to you to get a commit to pull the trigger.

I thought that Colin McGovern is also visiting on the 10th, is that still on?? If he does that would seem to signal that we will take another OL. Who else is slated to be visiting that weekend??


February 25th, 2012 at 10:07 PM ^

What about DT? Anyone know who we "should" end up getting? Obviously there are wishlist guys, but who has Michigan high on their list and have a pretty good shot of ending up here?


Sorry about off topic, not sure how long I have to wait before I can post my own topic...

I know UVs aren't set in stone but I thought he was visiting ND, UM, and USC (in that order). We just had a guy commit on the same day he was suppose to visit MSU, so it could happen.


February 25th, 2012 at 10:15 PM ^

Not just for the fact that we lead with Isaac and Treadwell.  I'm just dreaming about Vanderdoes, Levenberry, O'Daniel, Cravens, and Fuller on the Defense too.  Chance that I think we get all of them: 1%.  Anyway, one can dream.

Current percentages (IMO) for all the guys I just mentioned based on publically available info and no inside knowledge:
Ty Isaac: 75%
Treadwell: 50%
Vanderdoes: 15%
Levenberry: 65%
O'Daniel: 55%
Cravens: 15%
Fuller: 15%

Ty Isaac has not only said we were in his top group, but was very adamant about UM making the cut when he does narrow his list down. Strangely enough he couldn't name any other schools when asked. Quote from Tremendous update:

He wants to start narrowing things down. He's down to a top five that includes Michigan, but he doesn't have a number one. He said he was working on determining who the other schools were but wasn't specific as to who they actually were.

Call me optimistic but to me it seems we are his leader

 I hate to hijack a thread, but I'm wondering what the '3-star mafia' meme is. What does that mean? Is it that if we recruit too many 3-stars, the 3-star mafia will come and get us? Was it that Rich Rod was building a 3-star mafia of sleepers?

I've been lurking here since just after the coaching search began last year, and as far as I can tell, the "3 star mafia" refers to the fact that RR tended to get lots of them to commit pretty early in the process, so we'd be left with a "3 star mafia" for our recruiting class. Someone else with more knowledge can of course correct me if I'm wrong


February 25th, 2012 at 10:29 PM ^

What do you think the actual chances he would commit on the 10th? I know that he has to be feeling a little bit of pressure due to the class filling up so quick. With the o-line classes we have had, he has to see that he will be able to do some things.

Is Joliet Academy a ND feeder school and have we previously had any success pulling kids from there to Michigan?

Snaggin him from the likes of ND and USC would be fantastic.


February 25th, 2012 at 11:07 PM ^

Yes Joliet Catholic is a feeder school to ND. I believe Rudy was from there. As far as Michigan and JCA goes, the only guy I can think of that we got from there was Mike Kolodziej back in 2002. Otherwise I am not aware of any other players coming from there to Michigan.

If he commits on the 10th, then who will his buddy be?  Dukes is buddied up with Kugler, so Isaac has to have someone lined up to keep the trend going or does the staff have someone in mind already?
