Michigan Monday: The BBQ at The Big House Fields Early Results

As you know, the BBQ at the Big House was this weekend and we got some good news already.   Let's take a quick look at the good news and one miss.  

The food must have tasted great for these guys:

  • 2019 4 star OL Nolan Rumler from Akron, Ohio.  He is 6'4 and 300 pounds as high school junior and could get even bigger in the next two years before he arrives in Ann Arbor.    His offer list is an impressive one with the likes of Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Pitt, Rutgers, and Syracuse.   Jimmy hasn't pulled a ton of recruits out of Ohio since arriving in Ann Arbor has head coach, this is a nice early win for the 2019 class.

  • 2019 5 Star DE Stephen Herron Jr. from Louisville.   Stephen is a very high 4 star to all the services (ESPN hasn't rated him yet) which puts him in 5 star range on the 24/7 composite.   Stephen is a guy that is going to add pounds and strength over the next two years as he is 6'4 and a light 225 pounds right now.   His offer list like Nolan's is an impressive one with the likes of Alabama, Georgia, Louisville, Ohio State, Oregon, Stanford, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia Tech, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Purdue, Syracuse, and Vanderbilt. Sounds like this coaches sold Stephen on being the next Taco Charlton in Ann Arbor. 

  • 2018 4 Star IN LB Cameron McGrone will announce his decision at noon.  We will see if he liked the food at the BBQ.  Update: He is Blue!

This guy didn't like the BBQ choices:

  • 2019 QB JT Daniels was planning to visit Ann Arbor for the QB/WR camp this summer.  His plans changed last minute, so he flew out for the BBQ.  He saw what he needed to see in Ann Arbor and committed to USC last night. 

More News and Notes from the weekend:

  • Michigan Insider Sam Webb has recently had some terrible family news.   Please keep he and his family in your prayers and thoughts.   When I first started writing this blog and wanted to see what it felt like being a real journalist, I sat next to him at a few Michigan games in the press box.  He is a very good guy and I hurt for the Webb family and their loss.

  • Michigan fans all remember Da'Shawn Hand picking Alabama over Michigan.  He was arrested for DUI over the weekend.  Bama opens against FSU in Atlanta in week 1.

  • Fall Camp opens today for the Wolverines.

  • Coach B must really love Illinois State's program because reports are he has hired the second assistant off that team in Luke Yaklich.  Luke's resume is full of coaching experience in the Chicago area and coaching AAU.  His specialty seems to be defense and his background should help recruiting in Illinois.  If your wondering, Illinois State finished 28-7 last year but missed the NCAA Tournament.
