24/7 updates in the next week or two. Can't remember the exact date.

Rivals updates soon (within the next month I believe).

Not sure about the other two.

07/14/2011 - 7:09pm No,

Banner would have to count under the FB class size and roster size.

07/06/2011 - 8:03pm Great pictures

Great pictures. Not sure where to post this, but I read James Ross pulled a hammy during testing. If he can't go anymore, he says he will be recruiting Sheldon Day the rest of the weekend.

07/05/2011 - 3:47pm Mario also said he will be

Mario also said he will be recruiting O'Brien and possibly others.


Feels he is more LB than DE. Currently 6'2 220

07/05/2011 - 3:30pm DT

Sheldon Day is hoping to cut down to 8-10 schools "soon."


Dan O'Brien will cut down to 6 schools this week. Alabama and Tennessee mentioned as two schools likely to make the cut.

07/05/2011 - 3:28pm More on Dunn:

Someone commented that he is making a mistake committing to OSU and should commit to a school like Miami (FL).


Dunn disagrees, but is waiting until the NCAA makes a decision. Hears from coaches daily. He (Dunn) smiled and said he was committed to OSU. He is considering Michigan, PSU, and Miami (in addition to OSU).

07/05/2011 - 3:23pm Regarding Brionte Dunn

From ESPN analyst Corey Long:

"He says he's 100% committed to Ohio State, but he's visited Michigan. He has plans to visit Penn State and Miami in the future."

06/29/2011 - 7:22pm Reply to: rkarlik

I agree about not needing a "project 3 star recruit" however people care because

a) it seems like the coaches want a QB and we don't look good for higher rated guys like Kiel, Fuller hasn't scheduled a visit yet, and that leaves Mauk as potentially the only guy who has an offer and interest I believe

b) it's a random Wednesday with little news

c) Appleby camped at Michigan and was reported to want a Michigan offer, and most importantly

d) just the thought of the potential to steal another recruit from Danny Hope is absolutely too good to pass up based on the hilarity that would be sure to follow.

06/07/2011 - 5:42pm Reply to: Illegal Shift

How are they different?

06/07/2011 - 1:37pm Not 100% sure, but

I am pretty sure this would still be illegal contact.

The article states:

"For those unfamiliar with the term, a push notification in it’s most general term is the sending data from a server to a device (ex: phone or computer). For most it’s very similar to receiving a text message on a phone."


That would violate the rules. 


05/19/2011 - 6:47pm Some people just don't test

Some people just don't test well, especially standardized testing.

05/19/2011 - 2:44pm The full

APR data is scheduled to be released soon, I believe the 24th (of May). I could be wrong on the exact date, but I know it will be released within the next month.


Good luck to Williamson wherever he goes.

05/07/2011 - 6:53pm I read that

Brown could be a possible EE guy. Not sure if it is 100 accurate or not.

Hopefully Tom (or someone else) can confirm or deny.

05/07/2011 - 6:19pm I'm not Magnus (obviously), but

I love this commitment. Give Brown 30-40 pounds throughout his career and refine his technique and All-Conference honors are very feasible, maybe more. I am very high on Brown from what limited tape I have seen.

EDIT: Damn, someone just beat me to it. 

05/05/2011 - 2:53pm Starts would be a

great pick-up. I hope he gets up for a visit. I heard that he may want to play DL as opposed to OL. I believe A&M and Tech are recruiting as DL and Texas is recruiting as an OL.

05/03/2011 - 12:54pm That would be a

great DL class. I love Brown's film that I have seen. A RS and 20/30 pounds, the sky is the limit for him. That doesn't even include any of the "longshots" that we still have chances with.

I really wish we could take a full 25 this year.

04/26/2011 - 3:07pm It's

just you. I wasn't impressed with his highlight video. With the current roster situation, other needs, and prospects with interest, I really don't think Brown would be a wise use of a scholarship at this point, based on those highlights.

04/25/2011 - 1:34pm RB Recruiting

Tom (or anyone else with knowledge) is there anything new in regards to Running Back recruiting? It seems to be one of the positions that hasn't garnered much discussion early on.

03/13/2011 - 8:27pm I'm in.

Fitting we could

I'm in.

Fitting we could play Duke in round 2 with the Fab 5 doc on tonight.

2nd link confirming.


Other news in this link of relevance for Michigan:


* James Ross offered by USC.

* MA LB Camren Williams offered by BC.

*PA RB Greg Garmon offered by FSU.


03/09/2011 - 7:28pm OSU Undergrad,

Toledo Law School

03/08/2011 - 5:39pm 24/7

They are a similar service, yes. Still relatively new, so they don't have team sites for everyone.



We have also made GA DE Jarontay Jones' top 7.

03/01/2011 - 8:25pm Texas LB commits

Texas actually has 2 LB commits already this year.


Jinkens and Alex De La Torre

02/21/2011 - 11:16am Edwards is

an FSU legacy. Everything that I have read says a FSU/Texas battle with FSU having an early lead.

02/15/2011 - 12:55pm Yes,

you are more or less correct in regards to social networking and recruiting. I don't have it with me now, but I'll post what the NCAA says about this subject when I have access to it (unless someone else posts it first).

02/13/2011 - 10:28pm Hopkins didn't

go to Skyline, he went to Flower Mound (I believe).

02/11/2011 - 5:34pm It says we wanted Stephon

It says we wanted Stephon Gilmore @ QB, not Clowney.

02/07/2011 - 3:00pm Tennessee just lost their DL

Tennessee just lost their DL coach. Hopefully that helps with O'Brien.


01/20/2011 - 6:25pm If he does have offers from

If he does have offers from Oregon and Florida, I believe they would be recent, he may not have a great relationship with them either.

01/20/2011 - 6:23pm His offer list is legit.

His offer list is legit. Heard it is an A&M/Texas battle at this point. Hopefully we can get him up for a visit, might be too tough to pull off on such short notice.

01/20/2011 - 6:04pm Yep, I've read that Beyer

Yep, I've read that Beyer will be playing (or at least starting out at) LB.

01/20/2011 - 5:27pm I disagree, having also seen

I disagree, having also seen Harris and the other Grand Rapids/West Michigan guys play in HS (Obi Ezeh, Rueben Riley, etc.), he was very good, maybe not the greatest, but very good. Now granted, I wasn't even in HS when Harris (and Riley) played HS ball, so that could have an impact on my evaluation. I didn't think Obi was good enough to go to Michigan on a scholarship, but to his credit he worked extremely hard to not only go to Michigan, but to play early.


I don't give the article too much weight. It only listed the thoughts of a couple coaches, with only one having sent guys to Michigan (or anywhere else, according to one of the other posters). I would have been much more interested to here from coaches in Detroit, Flint, Saginaw, Grand Rapids, Muskegon, etc. 

01/20/2011 - 5:08pm Dawson did indeed eliminate

Dawson did indeed eliminate us after the CC. Most recent article I saw about him was after his visit to USC (which was recent), he said he eliminated us and Florida. UCF was going to be getting a visit from him.

01/19/2011 - 9:56pm Name calling isn't very

Name calling isn't very classy or mature. I don't know about you, but we Michigan fans try to be classy, mature, and respectful of opposing viewpoints.

01/19/2011 - 9:54pm Caught by whom (serious

Caught by whom (serious question)? I thought I remember his HS coach not even knowing about it.

01/19/2011 - 9:52pm Learn how to spell. For

Learn how to spell. For someone who talks about class, you sure do like to assume stuff about other people, and judge their values without knowing anything about them. You're also doing a poor job of trying to prove your "point" (if you can even call it that).

01/19/2011 - 9:37pm You named 2 kids who had

You named 2 kids who had questionable character, how is that case after case? None of what you have described is cheating. The one kid who did something wrong while at Michigan was promptly kicked off the team. Sounds like you are overreacting.

01/19/2011 - 9:30pm Not qualifying academically

Not qualifying academically is not the same as being a bad apple. Every coach and every school targets guys who may be borderline, sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. If I recall, no one (not even his HS coach) was aware of Feagin's past until after it happened. So, Feagin and Dorsey were two questionable character prospects RR got while at Michigan. I am quite sure that every coach has had similar results or worse. Carr went after bad apples as well, so I don't get the whole "Michigan we hold athletes to higher standards" in the way that you are using it. It looks to me like you just want to find fault with RR.

01/19/2011 - 9:11pm What?


How does Will



How does Will Hill have anything do with that?

By all accounts, the team (or at least the vast majority of it) are all great kids.

01/19/2011 - 9:02pm Is there something wrong with

Is there something wrong with that?

01/19/2011 - 8:50pm Yes, I saw this earlier.

Yes, I saw this earlier. Exhibit A as to why (some/all) coaches don't like the use of twitter.

01/19/2011 - 8:25pm Thank you kind sir.

Thank you kind sir.

01/19/2011 - 8:19pm Wallace would be great (to

Wallace would be great (to say the least). Odd that he and others couldn't "work it out' earlier. The Scout headline says "Barnett and Crew". Is Wallace the only "crew member" or are there potentially others?

01/19/2011 - 7:59pm Not sure about our interest,

Not sure about our interest, but he has visited Texas A&M, Utah, and Arkansas. 



01/19/2011 - 7:46pm Brian Miller who committed to

Brian Miller who committed to Boston College and Ray Hamilton who committed to Iowa and possibly uncommitted Darien Bryant have all been mentioned at some point during this year's recruiting cycle. 

01/18/2011 - 11:28am Not sure how accurate it is,

Not sure how accurate it is, I believe several people have said that DA was just messing with people (again).

01/18/2011 - 11:27am He hasn't visited Michigan,

He hasn't visited Michigan, hasn't set up a visit to Michigan, was considering us because of Avery Walls (who isn't coming here anymore), and I believe someone else (Tom maybe?) said so.

01/18/2011 - 11:18am Sorry. Just trying to inform

Sorry. Just trying to inform my fellow MGoBloggers.

01/18/2011 - 11:11am Next year, not this year.

Next year, not this year.
