Michigan Monday: A Good Week For Walk-On's

The final signing day for the 2019 class is 10 days away and it seems Jimmy and staff could care less.  They took a shot at some DT's late in the early signing period but didn't get them and there was some rumors about flipping an Alabama commit at RB, which doesn't look to be happening either.

Michigan has been hosting a ton of players but all of them are in the 2020 class.  So a week from Wednesday will be about 2 players:  Safety Quinton Johnson (who many have said signed in the early period but asked the coaches to keep it quiet so he could sign with his teammates on NSD) and Slot WR Amauri Pesek-Hickson, the latest sleeper find out of St. Louis.   I usually ask you to take work off to have fun as the commits come flowing in.  Not this year, go to work and read the BHB at your regular time.  😃

In somewhat of a surprise move, Jimmy gave 3 scholarships last week to walk-on's.  Which seems the final sign to set sail on the 2019 class and any potential graduate transfers.

Congratulations to the following:

-Senior WR Brendan White
-Senior DB Louis Grodman
-Sophomore DB Hunter Reynolds 

  • Michigan Basketball had an impressive win in Assembly Hall on Friday night.  The Wolverines started to game on fire and where able to blow out the lifeless Hoosiers.    Michigan plays twice in the next 5 days, a late 9:00 tip at Crisler against Ohio State on Tuesday and 6:30 at Iowa on Friday. 

  • ND seems to be moving forward with Stanford's RB coach, which means Mike Hart is probably staying at IU. 

  • Higdon ran 5 times for 18 yards in the Senior Bowl on Saturday.  Winovich sat out with a foot injury. 
  • OL Nolan Ulizio is doing his grad transfer year at Pitt.

I always wondered if Jay Harbaugh was not the running back coach, i would assume Mike Hart would take that position in a heart beat.

It is easy to say Jay could be in his position because of his father and not his credentials. Mike Hart would make a much very RB coach and better recruiter.

Seems odd they gave out 3 ships to walk-ons when we are already 9 over the 85 limit... Now we are 12 over... Going to be some bigger names leaving
