Michigan Tuesday: Matt Falcon and Running Backs Update

Michigan instate running back recruit/commit Matt Falcon can come to Michigan, get a full ride, but can't play football.   Which means he would have to sign a medical hardship waiver as soon as he got on campus. Reports are he has had multiple ACL injuries (at least two, I also saw a report that said he had 3?) including the latest one during this season.   He is a talented kid but if he has had that many ACL's injuries in high school, you can only imagine what playing Big Ten football could do. 

So Matt has a decision to make, does he look for another school to play for or does he take the full scholarship to Michigan knowing he will never play for the Wolverines?   You can be the judge of what you think of this decision by Jimmy, but I think it's a fair offer.  Don't forget Matt hasn't signed anything and Michigan could easily walk away from his recruitment as many schools would do.    I think this a strong offer and the right thing to do.   Matt hasn't made up his mind yet on what he wants to do.  I expect he will take a look at other schools. 

Speaking of Running Backs:

  • Antonio Williams the former Wisconsin commit, committed to OSU over the weekend.
  • OSU RB commit George Hill de-committed from Ohio State - he visited MSU a couple of weeks ago.
  • Michigan FB commit Kingston Davis says he will visit Nebraska, Florida, LSU, Ole Miss and Michigan.  Seems this young man's recruitment has blown up after receiving his Michigan offer.
  • No word from #1 RB and recent Michigan visitor Kareem Walker

Visitors from last weekend:

  • It seems the #1 TE in the nation  Isaac Nauta was surprised how much he liked Michigan.  He was really impressed with the academics and how the Wolverines reacted to a devastating loss.

  • David Long said he it was a great visit and he really enjoyed meeting with Coach Harbaugh. 

  • Michigan also seemed to have impressed DB Lamar Jackson and there are reports that Michigan is now his leader.
