Ohio St. was down this recruiting cycle because of class size limitations.

DT D'von Ellies already signed with Penn St.

I'm guessing 247 doesn't have a direct feed from the NCAA's official portal, so they would have to update the page themselves.  So the list could be incomplete due to error, timing, etc.

Dave Ablauf from the top rope with the finishing move!!!  Glad they did something against leeches such as James T. Yoder.

Mods, I hope you pin this entire thread as sticky.

Every year, the team has multiple top recruiting targets at WR.  Usually you can't get all of them despite best efforts, usually getting only 1-2 top WRs.  It just happens we got very, very fortunate to land all of the top targets at WR in the 2017 cycle.

Now utilizing them is a different story...

Diaz at Temple outlasted Enos at Michigan!

I thought he scored 4 TDs in one game? (Or maybe 1 TD got exaggerated into 4 TDs.)

I'm curious how Kevin Doyle will compare to Joe Milton the next few years.

M could have up to 3 Johnsons in this recruiting class!

The Wolverine podcast is great whenever Jim_S talks football recruiting or Tim McCormick talks basketball.  Other times, not so much.

Theoretically: If Velazquez goes over to baseball, he would still count against football unless 1) he gets a baseball scholarship AND 2) is not on the football team.  If he has a baseball scholarship, plays baseball, and is a walk-on in football, it counts against football.

I agree with you, Bronxblue, and M won't have all its top players for this one.

Purdue's record is 6-6 this year.  Losses to Northwestern, EMU, Mizzou, MSU, Row the Boat Guys, Wiscy.

Michigan's record is 10-2 this year.

A leftover from the Hoke era - calling Ohio State "Ohio"...  Harbaugh calls them "Ohio State."

Go Blue!

Com'on Purdue, shock the world and hire Mike DeBord!

The Wolverine podcast from Rivals has been mentioned, and they have various guests.

I definitely listen whenever Jim_S joins John Borton to talk recruiting.  It's a recruiting roundup on steroids.

Nick B: "Oh no, I'm running out of content to write.  I'll criticize Harbaugh again.  That will always get clicks and M fans will surely link it on blogs etc."

Editor approves.

Chris Howard is great to listen, awesome perspectives.  On the other hand I can't stand the fan, who's all bravado.  But this podcast plays up these 2 polar opposites.

Marcus Ray can be very informative.  He did a great job breaking down Michigan's defense vs OSU in 2016, explaining 1/2 man side, 1/2 zone on the field.  However he gets carried away at times so that's preventing him from being a national analyst.

Because Don Brown says so.  And he calls outstanding players "dudes"

Great commentary as usual.  Bronxblue's writing is therapy!

The first 3 games won't be a challenge.  OSU can get by with talent.  Meyer will be back for the important games.

It's a net win for OSU because it got an upgrade on a poor performing Wide Receiver Coach.

Ira talked way more than his guests!  This show is much better when Sam runs it.

Insert team name here, and quote:

"We had a great off season in the weight room."

"We're excited about our team."

"We're going to be more aggressive."

06/03/2018 - 9:30pm Wonder...

...how many clicks Brendan Quinn got today.  #clickbait

It doesn't matter who it is:  When you're looking for leverage, you show interest in the other job.  Who would say to a potential employer "I'm not really interested, I'm just using you as negotiating leverage."

03/24/2018 - 2:17am What???

Saquon Barkley is returning to college football and transferring to Florida State???!!!

And Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith are expert pickers.

03/17/2018 - 2:13am Solid player

Decent arm and keeps his eyes down field.  Throwing motion and footwork will need to be corrected.  He's quick in the pocket, can move around, but doesn't have enough running speed for QB runs to be a threat.

02/08/2018 - 12:40am Clickbait!

Stop linking to clickbait articles!

02/04/2018 - 9:36pm 2019 QBs

The 2019 recruiting cycle seems unusally weak at QB prospects.  Not every year is going to have star QBs, but 2019 is just way down.

01/21/2018 - 10:03pm You don't know?

JUCO players can be good players.  Many of them were good HS players who don't qualify right away.

01/21/2018 - 5:33pm Defending slot receivers

Most DBs in this recruiting class will probably redshirt.

An immediate need is to cover slot receivers better, and this guy can help.  Our current safeties cannot cover slots consistently.

 

01/17/2018 - 12:32am Hand...

didn't star (sort of) until his 4th year.  Expectations are very high since he was the #1 recruit in his class.

01/15/2018 - 9:47pm Agreed when it comes to coaches, but...

not sure about recruiting players.

01/15/2018 - 9:45pm We could have used...

Deontay Anderson, the 4-star safety from Ole Miss.  Too bad.

01/15/2018 - 6:35pm Every team...

would make a spot for NPF.  Goss is a high upside player, but raw.

01/15/2018 - 6:33pm Michigan Admissions Dept...

doesn't let in much JUCO transfers.

01/15/2018 - 6:31pm Does Barrett's offer from Nebraska for QB...

change this outlook?

01/12/2018 - 12:57am With recruiting...

probably heading to a mild finish, grad transfers, especially at OT, would be the best option.

We have a slight lead for J. Patterson, but it depends on Drevno (his main recruiter).

01/06/2018 - 3:47pm Did Lavar Ball...

mentor some of these players?

01/03/2018 - 1:19am M had no QB depth for the pistol.

If such a starter went down, backups at the time (Speight, Morris) are either not suited for the pistol or didn't have Harbaugh's trust.

12/31/2017 - 10:52pm David Long redshirted...

so he will be a RS Soph.

12/27/2017 - 8:40pm Devin Bush Sr.

made a huge difference in the recruiting process for Aubrey Soloman and JKP, per Sam Webb.  There are probably others too.

12/23/2017 - 1:17am What did you think

of Barnett from the game?

12/22/2017 - 12:32pm Isaiah Wilson

Sam believed M had a good chance, but he didn't put in a gut feeling unlike the other recruits during Commitmas last year.  That was a sign he wasn't completely confident.

12/20/2017 - 11:33pm Those schools always make room.

There are still lots of people in Reese's circle who want him at Georgia.  This battle will continue.
