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
