Michigan Thursday: What Will Josh Garnett Do?

Today is January 26th the day that 5 star offensive lineman Josh Garnett will make up his college decision known.   He did an interview late last night and says he is still 50/50 between Michigan and Stanford.   Since he is trying to make a decision between two good schools.  I thought I would do a Tale of Tape for him to help with the final decision:

Academics = Push
Football Tradition = Michigan
Program Trending Up = Push
Chance to Play = Push
Distance from home = Stanford
Good Friend in Recruiting Class = Michigan
Outlook for Program over the next 4 years = Michigan   (loss of Luck and Harbaugh vs Denard, Devin and Shane at Michigan)
2012 Recruiting Class = Michigan (Scouts = Michigan #3 Stanford #21)

Michigan = 4
Push = 3
Stanford = 1

As you can see it is a very close decision and could go anyway.  Let's hope he goes Blue around 6:00 tonight!

Most recruiting services are calling Stanford which include Scouts, Rivals and ESPN.  The local recruiting guys are calling Michigan.   This decision will have a big impact on how the rest of the class goes with Kozan, Diamond and Gibbs.

  • Bill Sheridan was just hired as an assistant coach at OSU.  I think Nick still has some eligibility left.   I don't consider this a big deal, Bill needed a job and found one.

  • Denard was at the Pistons - Heat game last night. 

  • Jordan Diamond will announce on 2/3 with his teammate Robert Gregory.   Robert is deciding between Arkansas, Minnesota, Kansas and Purdue.  The only reason I bring this up is both Robert and Jordan have Arkansas on their lists.  Package deal?

  • Coach Hoke will be in home with Sam Grant tonight.
