The Big House Blog Hugs a Tree on Earth Day

Michigan is expected to have less then 20 spots available for their 2010 recruiting class. They already have 9 committed players which leaves 11 spots left. So how many scholarship offers to you think Michigan has out right now? 20, 30 maybe 40 for the 11 spots? Nope, Michigan has over 100 scholarship offers on the street right now. That seems like a lot for 11 spots but I'm sure RR and staff know what they are doing.

  • Maryland Middle LB Troy Gloster is high on Michigan: “Michigan has a great tradition. They've got the Big House. (and Blog!) They produce a lot of great athletes. I called that my biggest offer.

  • With the Draft this weekend, I thought I would share some interesting numbers on how the Wolverines have done in the draft over time: Michigan has had a total of 48 players drafted since 1999 with 8 being 1st rounders. Michigan ranks #6 "all time" first round draft picks with 419 behind 1. USC 662 2. Notre Dame 613 3. Ohio State 594 4. Miami 555 and 5. Florida 426. The Buffalo Bills have drafted 15 Wolverines in their history that only ranks behind ND, PSU, and Ohio State. I can't really think of any Michigan players making a difference for the Bills. Maybe John Kolesar?

  • Is Michigan looking at a kicker for 2010? Maybe and one of the candidates they are keeping their eye on is: Will Hagerup from Wisconsin. Will is sporting offers from places like Florida, Wisconsin, Tennesse, Indiana, Alabama, and Arkansas. That is a ton of offers for a kicker in April.

  • A.J. Derby a 6"5 dual threat QB from Iowa is the latest to get a Michigan offer. This 4 Star QB already has offers from a host of schools including Florida, Alabama, Miami, Florida State, and others. AJ rushed for 13 touchdowns last year and threw for 11.
