The Michigan coaches don't like to take their class down to the wire. In fact, I think they would have preferred to have everything wrapped up a month ago. Sadly, it's not and Michigan is still waiting on the #1 RB in the country to make his decision, plus a couple more players. The "couple more players" could be filled this weekend.
- Cameron Hunt a 4 Star OL from California will be in Ann Arbor this weekend. The word is he is high on Michigan and hung out with the recruits during the UA game last week. He is currently a Cal commit but has plans to visit to Oregon as well. Cameron did receive a Ohio State offer last week and is thinking about visiting Columbus as well. I think there is a chance for Cameron to commit this weekend but he is saying right now he will at least take the trip to Nike Town.
- Reon Dawson is a 3 star DB (Rivals) that plays at Trotwood-Madison in Ohio. He is a taller DB that Michigan is looking for a 6'2 and 175 pounds. He is currently committed to Illinois but is also visiting Ann Arbor this weekend as well. Insiders believe there is a good chance Reon flips to Michigan this weekend as well.
- Dan Samuelson is a 3 star OL that visited Michigan back in December. Dan is committed to Nebraska but is considering the Wolverines as well. Dan is planning to announce his decision between Nebraska and Michigan on Monday. The "word" is distance to Nebraska is a factor and that Dan and his family might prefer Michigan and the shorter trip to Ann Arbor from his home in Indiana. Dan is making an official visit back to Ann Arbor this weekend.
So here is a question: Is it first come from serve for the last OL spot in the class between Cam and Dan?
I think so, but I also think Michigan might take them both. With Lewan coming back there doesn't seem to be a great need to take a 7th offensive lineman in this class. If Michigan gets two or 3 commitments this weekend (including Monday) they will be just waiting for Mr. Green to hopefully be Blue.
Side Note: I think Foster and LaRue are pipe dreams at this point. At this point, I don't expect Michigan to sign another WR in this class.
Side Note #2: Does anyone find it strange that Brian Kelly is taking a vacation a few weeks before National Signing day? I know he had a lot of stress the last few weeks but most coaches take time off starting in Mid-February not in Mid-January. Is this a sign he might be heading to the NFL?
