Michigan Friday: Another Recruiting Tool For The Wolverines

Many of you have seen Clemson's Castle that just opened for it's football players while they're not on the field.   It is a place where the football players can work out, hang out and get treatment.   It's a really great recruiting tool.   If your a 4 or 5 star guy and it's very close between Clemson and another school, this building is so nice, it might swing the pendulum to the Tigers.  

So facilities are a big deal when it comes to recruiting.   Michigan has a couple indoor practice facilities and regular weight rooms, etc.   Now they will step it up a level with a new Football Performance Center in the Bennie Oosterbaan Field House.    It won't be over the top like Clemson's new facility, but it will bring the Football Program a great space to work out and hang out.   As these areas, are where the players spend the most time anyway. 

The $21 million project calls for a 32,000-square-foot performance center to be built within the 78,000-square-foot field house, which will be used for strength and conditioning training for the football program. The project also calls for the addition of a 5,000-square-foot mezzanine level.

Here is a rendering that has been out since last Spring:

  • Michael Johnson who was expected to take a job on Jimmy's staff, will now take the Oregon's WR coach role.  I wonder if ESPN will cover this now?

  • RIP former Wrestling Legend and Michigan HS Football Coach, George the Animal Steele
