Michigan's New QB is Fast, Really Fast....................

Of course we are talking about Denard Robinson and his current and future Wolverine team- mate Adrian Witty.

This from the Miami Herald today:

Robinson enters with a career-best 10.44 in the 100, which ranks second to Tampa Chamberlain's Dentarius Locke (10.31) -- the top seed in Florida and No. 10 in the nation by

The Bucks believe victory is a foregone conclusion if Robinson gets the baton tied or even a few steps behind the lead on the anchor leg.

''Coach has pushed me way more and my teammates have pushed me,'' Robinson said. ``I feel very good in the 100. I'm stronger in the 200, too. I'm hoping to win all three. It means a lot to defend our relay title. We can't settle for anything less.''

Denard's track coach also believes Denard will eventually end up in the NFL. I can't wait to see that break away speed next Fall. Could Adrian be a diamond in the rough? He was only ranked as a 3 star player but with his track speed, could also be a surprisingly nice talent for the Wolverines the next 4-5 years.

  • 6"4 178 pound athlete from Detroit Cass Tech, Daniel Easterly recently got an offer from Missouri. The Wolverines have yet to offered the Cass Tech star. Daniel's current offer list includes: Wisconsin, Illinois, Purdue, Louisville, Minnesota, and MSU. If Easterly is to get a Wolverine offer, expect it to happen this summer during Camp season.

  • U of M Sports did very well in the NCAA's APR (Academic Progress Rate) Scoring: All of U-M's varsity sports teams scored above the NCAA's desired 925 level, with four teams -- men's cross-country, men's golf, women's golf and women's tennis -- obtaining perfect scores. Men's indoor and outdoor track finished within the top 10% of all sports as well.
