Michigan Monday: Wolverines Land Thier QB

Michigan yesterday afternoon landed 4 star QB Joe Milton from Florida.   He currently plays for  Olympia HS in Orlando.   Joe is a 4 star to all the services, minus Scout which lists him as a 3.  Rivals and ESPN have Joe as a top 10 QB in the country and 24/7 lists him as the #16 QB.    He is 6'5 and 222 pounds and has a shotgun for an arm! 

Joe is a guy that is closer to his basement then his ceiling right now and will do great things under Harbaugh's QB coaching.   He will be a nice next step after Peters and McCaffrey and I can also see Jimmy weaving him in for some special packages after his redshirt year. 

Joe picked the Wolverines over offers from Florida, Georgia and Tennessee.   He also held offers from the likes of Louisville, LSU, Miami, Arizona, Indiana, Kansas State, Mississippi State, Missouri, Oregon State, Pitt, South Carolina, and Syracuse.

Michigan has told Tyler Shough that they will take two QB's in this class and he is expected to visit this month.   I think Tyler will have a short window to commit and then Michigan will move on to other needs in this recruiting cycle.   Yes, they probably will take Tyler but they also might use that spot for another need. 

Joe is the 8th member of this class and the first QB commit.   This class size is expected in the under 20 range. 

  • OL Ben Braden didn't get drafted and had a tryout with the Jets and was signed to a contract this weekend.

Nice catch ( no pun intended)... shot-gun of a arm is welcome news! The past decade was hampered by weak throwing arms!
