Pryor enlisted Batch, backup quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers and a family friend, to be his spokesman. "He was impressed with the (Michigan) campus, and with the school overall," Batch said. As for comparisons with OSU, "We didn't really speak about Ohio State. It was about Michigan and his experience there."
DB J.T. Floyd (6-0 185) of JL Mann made an official visit to Michigan over the weekend and was highly impressed. "It went great, I loved it," Floyd said. "I found out this South Carolina guy can take the cold. They explained to me if I come in and work hard, there's an opportunity for a lot of playing time as a freshman. I like Michigan. I enjoyed the program, every aspect of it." Floyd also has visited Georgia Tech and is scheduled to visit Tennessee this coming weekend. He has been a soft commitment to the Vols.
Per Brian at Mgoblog: We should know shortly about the future of slot WR DJ Woods, choosing between Michigan and Cincinnati. On the surface, this should not be a competitive battle but if Woods feels snakebit by Rodriguez maybe he'll flee to the arms of Brian Kelly, who is totally guaranteed to leave Cinci before he does.
Per Message Board: Michael Shaw the teammate of Brandon Moore is being recruited as a RB/Slot WR.. He was high on Michigan early on in his recruiting, but Lloyd Carr wanted him as a DB so he dropped us and committed to Penn State. Now that we're recruiting him again for the offensive side of the ball he's very interested again, plus he has Brandon Moore in his ear every day.. It'll be good news for Michigan hopefully.
