This weekend kicks off college football and the official visit season for the 2017 recruits. Here are a few items to be aware of this weekend:
- Instate WR Donovan Peoples-Jones will take his first official visit to Nebraska this weekend.
- Speaking of WR's (we need some!) 4 Star WR Tarik Black will be in Ann Arbor this weekend for an official visit. He might be on commit watch. Michigan is very high on DPJ, Nico Collins and Oliver Martin, this might be the best chance for Black to be the first WR in the class.
- Don't forget that Paramus Catholic is playing at the Big House on Friday night at 6:00. The game will be on ESPN U. I don't believe the Michigan staff is allowed to attend due to recruiting rules.
- 5-star OL Alex Leatherwood will take his official to Ann Arbor for the Wisconsin game.
- Tom Brady will be the honorary team captain for the Colorado game. Thanks to Goodell he doesn't have anything to do for the first 4 games of the NFL season.
- Mike Weber has been named the opening day starter for Ohio State. We all remember the Mike Weber recruiting saga. Speaking of former Michigan RB recruits, expect to see a lot of Damien Harris for Alabama this year as well.
- Kyle Kalis has an interesting quote from this Mlive interview: "The big thing for me is having coach Drev as my coach. I can't stress (it enough). Coach Drev has helped me so much," he says. "I credit it all to him. The way he's coaching me ... I wish I could have had him longer. I'll say that."I wish I could have had him longer
The weekend of big games doesn't seem to translate to tonight:

App State vs. Tennessee
Still College Football is Back!!!
Good game on Friday Night: Kansas State vs. Stanford
