Michigan Tuesday: Welcomes Another Instate Offensive Lineman

Maybe Jimmy should spend more time in France?  He arrives in Paris and finds out that Shea Patterson has gotten his NCAA Waiver and now he has landed an instate offensive line prospect from Paw Paw.   He also is getting daily hits on ESPN Sports Center with Marty Smith also on the trip.  If your wondering where Paw Paw is?  It's past Kalamazoo off of 94.   So his family and friends don't have far to go for Michigan games. 

Karsen Barnhart was about to pull the trigger on a commitment to Michigan a few weeks ago after a visit to Ann Arbor.  Someone from East Lansing got in his head and asked him to wait a few weeks.  He did and still committed to the Wolverines yesterday.

Barhhart is a high 3 star OT across the board to all the services.  He is 6'5 and 282 pounds and projects to tackle or guard in Jimmy's offense.   His offer list included MSU, IU, ASU, Iowa, Iowa State, UK, Minnesota, and Nebraska.  For video on KB check out his hudl page.

Insiders that have seen a game or reviewed his tape consider Karsen to be in the mold of 3rd round draft pick Mason Cole.   This is the 4th offensive lineman (Rumler, Smith, and Stewart) in the class and it seems many can bounce from guard to tackle as they develop.   With the light 2018 class, I expect the Wolverines will still take one or two more offensive linemen in this class. 

Michigan continues to have a nice top 10 ranked 2019 class with now 10 commitments.

  • James "Biggie" Ross proposed to his girlfriend at the Palace of Versailles yesterday.  Well done, young man! She said, Yes!  As you know, his brother is on the team now and is expected to compete for starting LB role with the team next season.  Biggie is an analyst on Jimmy's staff.

  • Michigan is in the top 5 for NJ 3 star defensive end Aeneas DiCosmo, also in the top 5 are ND, Stanford, Clemson, and Northwestern.

  • For those that like to have Michigan colored Nike's but not with Michigan logo's all over them.  Nike released this pair of Air Max 97's today.   There isn't any Michigan branding on them but the industry is calling them the Nike Air Max 97 - Michigan.   Available at nike.com at $160, released this morning.
