BHB Likes those Rankings!

Tom Lemming has been a bit of a wild card when it comes to high school football recruiting. Don't get me wrong he has been doing this for years, but sometimes has very different opinion on players then say Rivals, Scouts, or even ESPN (sort of known as a recruiting service rookie). One of those things was Michigan's State's 2009 recruiting class. Right before signing day, Tom thought MSU had a better class to date then Michigan. Most every other service disagreed and he and Sam Webb from Scouts and the Detroit News had a heated debate on local Ann Arbor radio about it. There has even been "talk" that Tom doesn't like the Wolverines for one reason or another. It's all just rumors.

Anyway, the reason I bring this up is Tom just released his Top 100 players and a couple current Wolverine commits are ranked high, very high. Let's take a look:

#9: Devin Gardner
#12: William Gholston (has not committed to any school yet)
#36: Marvin Robinson

Devin in the top 10 is amazing. Let's hope Tom is right and the rest of the services follow suit in the next 9 months.

  • Sam Webb from Scout and The Detroit News: Let's us know that Michigan likes to recruit Pahokee, Fla which is nicknamed "the Muck". The most famous Pahokee players are Anquan Boldin and Santonio Holmes. While were on this topic, Jerome Bettis is from Detroit, it's hot in Florida in the summer, and Michigan's record was 3-9 last year under a new head coach. :-)

  • Denard Robinson Makes SI! In the faces in the crowd section for his track exploits.

  • Do you want to get season tickets to see Michigan play? This is your year and it's only for one year!

  • Delaware State is getting $550,000 large for it's effort in Ann Arbor next fall.

  • This from NBC News in Columbus: The Ohio State University committed more than one out of every three NCAA level one violations in the Big Ten conference during the 2007-08 school year, accounting for 13 of 34 total level one violations that typically deal with recruiting mistakes. The football program was cited for two recruiting violations—both pertained to Assistant Coach Dick Tressel having inadvertent contact with prospects. Head Coach Jim Tressel was present during one of the secondary violations. oops!

  • Former Michigan WR, Toney Clemons has picked Colorado. The former singing group of Tony! Toni! TonĂ© had no comment but they did say: Tony! Toni! TonĂ© had done it again!
