Michigan Monday: Two Weekend Commits

The Michigan Basketball Team got an athletic wing on Friday night in Canadian big man Ignas Brazdeikis.  Iggy is 6'8 and 220 pounds and a 4 star (top 100) prospect in the 2018 class.   Iggy was born in Lithuania and raised in Canada and is known as a scorer that can play multiple positions on the court.   He just felt Ann Arbor was the place for him as he was scheduled to visit Florida next weekend. 

Michigan Basketball's Canadian pipeline is still alive and well.  I look forward to Iggy being in a Michigan jersey and playing for Coach B!   Welcome Big Man!  (potential nickname Iggy Pop a Shot? - too early?)

Yesterday, the football program got somewhat of a surprise commitment from 2018 3 star QB Kevin Doyle from Washington DC.   Kevin got on Michigan's radar when he played on ESPN a few weeks ago against DeLaSalle.    Kevin then visited for the Air Force game and decided to pull the trigger on a commitment last night.

Kevin is 6'4 and 210 pounds and had offers from BC, IU, UK, Iowa, MSU, Nebraska, Ole Miss, WVU, Princeton, Purdue, Pitt, and Syracuse.   Kevin is rated as the 15th pro style passer on 24/7.

“Obviously the University of Michigan is a great academic institution,” Doyle said. “Academically it’s great with the business school which is the degree I’ll probably pursue. Also having Coach Harbaugh with his offense and Coach Hamilton and all the quarterbacks he’s previously put in the NFL I feel I fit the mold for that system. Really I think the offense they run should bring out the strong suits of my game.”

Kevin will be back in the Big House for his official visit for the MSU game in two weeks.

  • Update: Michigan - MSU will be a night game at the Big House.  7:30 Kick.

  • Chase wins the Walter Camp FBS National Defensive Player of the Week for his play in the Purdue game.

  • No word on Wilton's injury, maybe Jimmy says something in his Monday's press conference, I wouldn't hold my breathe. 

  • Penn State pulled out a win against Iowa on Saturday.  Barkley is now the leading candidate for the Heisman trophy, which he should be. He is freak running back and might be the best player in the college football.   Playing in Happy Valley at night will be a difficult task but I like Michigan's defense against Penn State's offense overall.
