I hope he stays with Cal... Jeff Jones is undoubtedly a superior talent, and it sounds like we have a pretty good shot with him...

Also, Mikale Wilbon opened his recruitment back up... Maybe we get involved there if we miss on both?

So totally agree, Enwere was dropped for a shot at Jones as it should be. I know some people weren't impressed by his highlights but if you check out his HUDL senior highlights......my word. I thought they were insane (or maybe I am which is possible).

44 TDs and averaged 9 yards a carry. Combined, Damien Harris and Jones combined for 89(!) TDs last year. Yeah, it's HS and different level of competition but damn........

Wasn't their a 3rd school in Enwere's recruitment?

I've got to think it's Michigan and the excitement of Nussmeier may have rubbed off. 

I do wonder how he compares and how this affects Jones (assuming he commits)

but doesn't seem like he's going to come to Michigan. Usually positive rumblings start appearing before someone commits to Michigan and it's been silent on the Enwere front lately

but I only see three scenarios for why he would announce now when he has a visit planned in two weeks to Cal.

1) He's committing here before Jones takes his spot.

2) Cal threatened to pull his offer.

3) Nussmeier isn't interested so his offer was pulled here.

#2 seems unlikely to me. #3 doesn't carry any urgency. Have I overlooked something?

Personally not interested in Enwere. I prefer Jeff Jones. Obviously, I would welcome him to the Michigan family but if I had to choose between the two i'd go with Jones. The timing of his decision doesn't seem to indicate that he'd choose UM anyway when you consider his comments on the Borges dismissal.

Says UM already informed him they're moving in a different direction.

I've given up following recruiting since the McGuffie hype-bust, so if someone can help me out here:

Did Michigan already offer him?  If so, what is that conversation like?  "I know we offered you a scholarship, but now we're unoffering it.  Sorry, mate."  That's gotta be really awkward unless the offer wasn't made yet.

Be honest ... how many people were hoping Enwere would NOT pick Michigan? I think everybody has moved their hopes over to Jones. I'd be interested to hear from anyone that wanted Enwere (and the reasons for wanting him). I didn't really know much about him to be honest.
