NSD Blitz Michigan Re-Cap


Michigan started off the day with a new 4 star RB back commit in Dennis Norfleet.  He is a fast RB that will run the ball, maybe play some slot and return kicks for the Wolverines.  This is a great last minute pick up for the Wolverines who had some open spots to fill.   Many have compared his new role to Darrin Sproles with the Saints

Protect This House

Between 7:15 AM and 1:00 pm in the afternoon, Michigan got all their 22 players signed and sealed.  Everyone expected to sign, did just that.  That is a huge accomplishment for any major program.  Kids get cold feet, what to stay closer to home and get calls from coaches begging them to join their program.  Keeping the class together on signing day is a huge win for the Wolverines.   

Signing Day Drama

The drama began around 11:00 AM when the word was that 4 star OL Alex Kozan was re-thinking his commitment to Iowa and was feeling rushed about his decision.   His final 3 are Iowa, Michigan and Iowa.

The word on the Internet and social media was going back and forth from Auburn back to Iowa and then Michigan.   Alex skiped his schools signing day ceremony and at this point is still un-decided. 


Michigan hopes their top 10 recruiting class can still grow by two as Alex and Jordan Diamond are still on the board.  Jordan is announcing on Friday night and Alex's decision could come down anytime.  Michigan fans and coaches have their fingers crossed for these two highly rated offensive lineman. 

How did Michigan do?

Rivals has Michigan's class #6 in the country
Scouts has Michigan #4
24/7 has Michigan #7

What about 2013?

The Michigan coaches are now focusing on 2013 and getting that class going.  ESPN did their 2013 top 100 and Shane Morris is 5 Star prospect and Dymonte Thomas is a 4 star prospect.
