Wolverine Weekend Update: Well That Wasn't Expected

Devery Hamilton a 4 Star Offensive Lineman out of Gilman in Baltimore has de-committed from Michigan and flipped his commitment to Stanford. 

Biff Poggi who just retired from Gilman is reportedly considering a offer from Jimmy to join his staff.   I wonder if that offer is still on the table :)

This is why recruiting is so crazy and works both ways.   With the loss of Swenson and now Hamilton this leaves a big hole in Michigan's class.   With the dead period starting soon, I don't see how Michigan can backfill this position in this class.   Unless they can flip someone like Will Fries who has visited Ann Arbor but is committed elsewhere (PSU). 

Michigan most likely will fill this hole in 2017 or through a transfer.

Some good news:

There is a rumor floating around that Michigan might get Victor Viramontes back in this class.  He is expected to make a NSD decision. 

Recruiting news never stops!

Dang... Loosing Hamilton stings a little....

Any idea who this silent commit could be? Asiasi maybe?

Id like to see Victor back as a LB or S

F Hamilton GOBlue!

Hudson visited Pitt today... Was planned long ago before his commitment... He said he's all M after the visit

I think the silent is VV. He has an announcement set up for NSD.

I believe it's VV as well. Justice has reported actually talking to VV where most of is reporting is second hand. Just a couple days ago he said VV wanted to play QB & Michigan wanted him as a LB.

Mike T said...

I don't consider VV a "Surprise" But it could be... He made it clear he wanted to play QB

Hoping its EJ Price or Greg Little (Makes more sense that Hamilton flipped)

These are two uncommitted OT's that Michigan had/has an interest in:

Jauan Williams 6'6" 314, Washington, DC (Has Michigan Offer)
Tramonda Moore 6'5" 330, Oklahoma City, Ok (Has Michigan Offer)

A couple that Michigan "may" have an interest in:

Stewart Reese, 6'6" 330, Fort Pierse, Fl
Scott Lashly, 6'6" 298, West Point, MS

I believe that Michigan will secure a replacement tackle for Hamilton.
