Who's In?

Today's Announcement:

  1. 9:30 AM Mekhi Becton between Virginia Tech and Michigan
  2. 10:00 AM Willie Gay - LSU, Michigan, Miss State
  3. 10:30 AM Aubrey Solomon on ESPNU - Michigan
  4. 12:00 PM Jay Tufele - USC, Utah, Michigan
  5. 2:30 PM Nico Collins - Michigan

Nico is all Maize and Blue!!!! Here is his commitment video

The below players have signed their LOI (Letter of Intent) and now officially Michigan Wolverines:
  • Chuck Filiaga is in
  • Joel Honigford is in
  • Andrew Stueber is in
  • Luiji Vilain
  • Deron Irving-Bey
  • James Hudson
  • Aubrey Solomon is in !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Phil Paea
  • Kwity Paye
  • Drew Singleton
  • Jordan Anthony
  • Josh Ross
  • Kurt Taylor
  • O'Maury Samuels
  • Oliver Martin
  • Brad Hawkins
  • Dylan McCaffrey
Ok, here is the deal, Jake is a PWO and somehow got his name in the video by mistake.   If your wondering, Brad Robbins is on scholarship.

We have a new surprise name Jake McCurry.  He showed up in the Signing Day video and is a 6'1 and 180 pound WR/SS.  He is not rated.  

Also News is breaking Michigan might have added a punter as well.  Confirmed: Michigan has added Westerville, OH punter Brad Robbins to this class.  He is rated the #1 punter in the class and a two star recruit.

Becton in a minor surprise picks Louisville.
Gay to Mississippi State
Tufele heads to USC
5 Star DT Aubrey goes Blue!!!!

BHB Reaction:  Yes, on Aubrey!  Everything else has gone the way we expected.  Becton picking Louisville is a surprise but he isn't coming here, so it really doesn't matter.   Michigan now has one or maybe two spots left.    I wonder if they are on the phone right now with a few guys?

While we wait, if you want to poke a little fun at MSU.  This kid turned down a scholarship offer at Michigan State to walk-on at Northwestern.   They also lost a Jalen Tolbert WR recruit that they were chasing to South Alabama.

Also Maryland flipped 4 star WR Tahj Capehart from Virginia Tech this morning and a RB that had been committed to Tennessee.

These guys enrolled early:
Ambry Thomas CB 5'11 170★★★★
Tarik Black WR 6'4 200 ★★★★
Donovan People -Jones WR 6'2 200 ★★★★★
Cesar Ruiz C 6'3 320 ★★★★
Donovan Jeter DT 6'5 250★★★★
Jaylen Kelly-Powell S 6'0 180 ★★★★
Ben Mason LB 6'2 247★★★
Corey Malone-Hatcher DE 6'3 245★★★★
JaRaymond Hall OL 6'5 255 ★★★★
Ben St-Juste DB 6'3 185 ★★★★
J'Marick Woods S 6'4 200★★★

Seems to me that 11 early enrollees is an extreme amount compared to past years, unless of course my memory is fading.. That big of early-class is a vote of confidence in Harbaugh (IMHO!- stolen from VOR!)

I think it lends to a couple things. #1 recruits are taking notice that Jim isn't stuck on red-shirting, he has no problem playing true freshmen.
#2. High Schools are much more accommodating to students that want to graduate early.

Still skeptical on Solomon, but GO BLUE!!!!

NICE>.... I'll gladly eat my hat...... SOLOMON is BLUE

It looks as though we have 28 signees with Nico being a probable 29th player. That could possibly mean that we could have a surprise last moment signing or two. Any thoughts on who it could be?

I saw the Jake McCurry introduction in the SOTS but I didn't know if it was a POW or is obviously a scholarship. Brad Robbins is also a scholarship. I guess that answers my question. They are both on hudl with videos. McCurry although unrated is apparently at least above average and also plays Strong Safety, and Robbins is a very good punter and kicker as well. IMHO!!!

Scott K said...

Bang..... we pulled a major flip and stole a punter away from Nevada. LOL

Bob, thanks for the clarification regarding Jake McCurry. I thought that since he was in the introduction that he was on scholarship, especially since the other POWs weren't introduced. However, the "mistake" clears it up. Thanks.
