Wolverine Wednesday: Likes It's Defensive Ends

Michigan has two DE recruits that are announcing in the next two weeks.   Corey Malone-Hatcher is picking his school tomorrow and Luiji "Chillin like a" Vilain is announcing a week from Sunday on 6/12 in Ottawa, Canada.   The Wolverines are a strong favorites for both defensive prospects.

24/7 Steve Lorenz believes the Michigan staff would take a total of 4 DE's in this class.

  • 2017 4 star OL Toryque Bateman is planning a visit to A2 on June 17th.  Toryque is 6'8 and 310 pounds.   My goodness!

  • A couple of Michigan commits will be taking a few visits:  O'Maury Samuels is planning trips to USC, Oklahoma, TCU, Arizona and Cal.  He said he is still strong with Wolverines, but looking to see these schools.  This is the freak athlete RB that still has the #1 Nike SPARQ time in the US this year.   J'Marick Woods just picked up an offer from Les Miles and LSU.  I wouldn't be surprised if he took a visit there as well.

  • I mentioned yesterday that Michigan made the top 6 for Vegas DT Greg Rogers, he is planning his announcement in December.

It's June and that means it's Satellite Camp season.    Jay Harbaugh, Chris Partridge, and Tony Tuioti have arrived in Australia and will lead all the International Camps.   Jimmy is in Chicago for a camp that wasn't well advertised outside the Chicago area.

After it's clear Michigan is sending coaches all over the globe.  Saban comes out with this rant: 
"Anybody can have a camp now and if they have a prospect, they can have a camp," Saban said. "Then you're expected to go to that camp and they can use you to promote their camp because Ohio State's coming, Alabama's coming, whoever else is coming. Somebody sponsors the camp. They pay them the money. What do they do with the money? And who makes sure the kid paid to go to the camp?

"This is the wild, wild West at its best because there's no specific guidelines relative to how we're managing or controlling this stuff.”

Jimmy's response:

Alabama recently fired a coach for committing NCAA recruiting violations.

Thanks for update on the Bama coach being fired. I was not sure what Jimmy was referring to. Good to know.

Saban said we face "unforeseen consequences" or something like that from satellite camps... I believe Saban's correct...will have a worse hurricane season then before, the dead will become living, etc. Zombie apocalypse is inevitable.
