Michigan Monday: A Couple of ND Commitments

Michigan next year needs to replace starters and many positions including cornerback and wide receivers, which are the two positions that Freddy "Footwork" Canteen played for Michigan.   Freddy had shoulder surgery last spring but wasn't on this roster this past season.   He announced he was going to transfer many months ago and has found a new home at Notre Dame. 

I had high hopes for Freddy at Michigan but he never seemed to find a spot on Harbaugh's Wolverines.   Freddy played 7 games at Michigan and we wish him nothing but good luck at ND.  I have no idea when he will be eligible to play as he wasn't on the roster this past season. 

  • A ND recruiting win happened this morning when 4 star Cass Tech CB Kalon Gervin committed to the Fighting Irish. 

  • Michigan Basketball got its first road win of the year at IU last night.  They are still a bubble team.  Needs a good run in the Big Ten tournament.

Seems odd that Freddy would pick ND. Typically, a guy in his situation goes to a smaller school where he could get more playing time. There is a good chance he rides pine at ND. Wish him the best of luck.

"Rides pine" [lol]... had to look that up in urban dictionary.

I always wondered if a football player is better off being the 'hero" at a small school with enormous playing time vs. gambling to play at a big school, and riding the pine.

Lots of disappointed recruits think that they will be big time at OSU, Michigan... only to transfer out later to try to salvage a career'

Some highly skilled players opt to play at small schools, enjoy themselves, and still get drafted. Food for thought.

Then the opposite is true some Michigan walk-ons made the grade, and went on to the pros.

I'm surprised Kalon committed to ND... I thought he was going to look hard at M....

Maybe we have bigger fish to fry??

I wouldn't close the door on Kalon, unless Jim isn't that interested in him. NSD is a L O N G way off and lots can happen.

I agree on all the comments, I think Kalon was a quick decision, if ND struggles again and Michigan wins over 10 games that might make his decision a little harder to go to South Bend.
