With kids enrolling early, we pretty much need to know where they are going to school next year. So a number of announcements are being scheduled. Look at this string of announcements that effect the Wolverines 2017 class:
4 star Tarik Black: Wednesday
5 star Donovan People-Jones: Thursday Night
5 star Isaiah Wilson: Friday Afternoon
4 star Cesar Ruiz: Sunday
I guess they wanted to take Saturday off. This could be a great week for Michigan recruiting!!
- Get ready for Jim Harbaugh to LA Rams rumors after they fired Jeff Fisher yesterday. I don't expect coach to go anywhere.
- Peppers and Lewis made the All American team
- Michigan visited OL Chuck Filiaga last week before he headed off to Nebraska for an official visit. He is planning to announce this month as well.
- DT Rutger Reitmaier is sticking with Oregon. With Jimmy being close friends with Willie Taggart (new head coach), I had a feeling this might happen.
- OL Alex Leatherwood is sticking with Alabama. Would have loved to seen him in the maize and blue, but you can't knock a kid for making that decision.
- TJ Slaton is taking the SAT this month, if he gets a qualifying score he will be able to take official visits in January. TJ has always liked Michigan and I expect he will visit if possible.
- I didn't know coach Wheat had another son that was playing football. Terius Wheatley is a 5'11 athlete and played at Pioneer. He committed to his only Major 5 offer - Virginia Tech. Talk about a program on the rise!
- DE Robert Porcher has de-committed from Nebraska. He did visit A2 but I don't expect Michigan to be in the mix at this point.
- Lane Kiffin will be the head coach for FAU. Wow, there are a lot of big name coaches in the State of Florida now. Butch Jones took a job at one of the Florida schools and Charlie Strong is now at South Florida. Does Lane leaving effect the recruitment of Najee Harris?
