Want To Know if a Recruit is "Really" Committed to your University?

  1. The committed player commits during his junior year.

  2. He is rated one of the top players in the State of Florida.

  3. Said player is expected to be a high 4 or 5 star recruit.

  4. Committed Player helps recruit other players to come to the University he verbally committed to.

  5. Committed player wants his new University fan base to know he is going to other schools junior days just to see other places but he promised his grandmother that he would play for the University he committed to.

  6. Now the committed player and family is planning to move from Florida to Ann Arbor this summer, so that he can play high school football in Ann Arbor and go to every home Michigan game this fall.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen we are talking about Ricardo Miller a Michigan verbal commit true and true. On Michigan Blogs, we always talk about "Michigan Men" and I'm not sure I have ever seen a better example then Ricardo. To go from the arguably the best State for high school football to Ann Arbor, just to be closer to his university in a word is, outstanding.

Here is my prediction for Ricardo. He comes in and makes an instant impact in 2010. In 2011, he wears the #1 jersey with Braylon's approval. In 2012, we talk about him in the same breath as Braylon, Desmond, or Anthony Carter as one of best WR's in Michigan's history. I know that is a lot of pressure to put on a young man and that's not my intent at all. I'm just blown away in his love and passion for Michigan Football and hope nothing but great things for him.
The only mistake I can see that he is making is he is going to Huron High instead of Pioneer! :-) I hope Huron has a good QB since he is going to be throwing to 2 top WR's in Miller and Jackson!
