Michigan Friday: Plays Catch UP

Sorry about missing the post yesterday, real life got in the way.  Playing catch-up today.

BTN Enters The Sub:

Jimmy doesn't like too many people in the submarine.  He and the team has work to do and he doesn't need distractions from TV cameras or media types.  

The BTN came calling yesterday  Wednesday and got a few insights on stuff we already knew like:

  • It's a two horse race at QB between Morris and Rudock.   Big surprise here.
  • Peppers is athletic.
  • Jimmy didn't do an interview with the BTN and spent most of his time with the QB's.
  • OL looks better
  • Defensive might be really good
  • Nobody stood out as the #1 starter at RB
  • WR's about the same, true freshman Grant Perry stood out as maybe an early contributor.
  • Place kicker might be an issue
Pretty much stuff we already knew, the Grant Perry information was new and exciting as he was a late edition to the class and was heading to Northwestern.

  • Instate WR Donnie Corley who was pretty much considered a loss by many recruiting insiders seems to be heading up with the Wolverines.   He has visited Michigan twice recently and really likes the idea of wearing Jordans next season. 

  • Penn State commit CB Lavert Hill has been rumored to be flipping to Michigan for about 5 months now.  Still hasn't but he would like to play college with his HS teammate and friend Donnie Corley.  Package deal? 

  • Michigan continues to recruit instate four-star Farmington Hills Harrison DE Khalid Kareem, even though he is committed to Alabama.  Insert hurricane simulator jokes here.

  • Four-star TE Naseir Upshur almost committed to the Wolverines about a month ago while on a visit.  Now there is a rumor he might be a silent commit to FSU. 

  • Michigan commit, Hartland (Wisc.) Arrowhead offensive lineman Ben Bredeson opened his high school football season last night with a dominating performance and win.

  • Ohio CB Tony Butler who has visited Michigan a couple times has dropped Michigan from his list, which also probably means Michigan hasn't been recruiting him very hard lately.  Hopefully that is a good sign of Hill landing in A2.
