Big House Tuesday: Gardner Sets Announcement

Devin Gardner: Who silently committed to the Wolverine coaches around Junior Day is planning to make his official announcement this week. Devin wanted to wait until his basketball season was over before he made his verbal commitment. Devin is Rivals #177 ranked player in the country (#2 ranked player in Michigan) and has over 15 offers from major programs across the country.

  • Michigan's Defense is planning to Blitz a lot more! Which is funny because Michigan's old DC Scott Shafer had a reputation as being "the king of Blitz" but here is what LB Obi Ezeh has to say about Greg Robinson's new defense: "It resembles a lot of the stuff we were doing with coach [Ron] English, so some of the older guys did it before," Ezeh said, referring to Michigan's defensive coordinator from 2003-07. "I got the feeling that it's going to be blitz-heavy, so I'm excited for that." This is also an interesting tidbit from the ESPN article: Michigan is using several players in a hybrid defensive end-linebacker role, including junior Marell Evans, sophomore Brandon Herron, sophomore Steve Watson and freshman Anthony LaLota, an early enrollee. Senior Stevie Brown, who started all 12 games at safety last season, is being used as a safety/strongside linebacker.

  • Scouts Orlando Combine MVP OJ Ross has a Michigan offer.
