Michigan Friday: Michigan Gets Some Future Help In The Kicking Game

First is Karl Kerska who committed to Michigan as PWO.  If your name is Karl Kerska you have to be a kicker right?  Wait, there is more, he is also a punter and ranks as the #69th kicker and #100 punter in the US by Kohl's  Kicking.

From Kohl's: "Kerska had a solid showing at the 2018 National Scholarship Camp. He displayed excellent coordination and ball striking ability. He was excellent on field goals by scoring 31 points on the field goal charting and finishing 14th at the camp in his class on field goals. Commanding his tempo and confidence should help him improve his kickoffs to where his field goals currently are. He showed the ability to roll out punt and scored points during the punt charting on it. Increasing his command of his drop should help his punting develop even more."

Welcome Karl the Kicker! 

Next is William Wagner who also committed to Michigan as a PWO.  If your name is William Wagner you must be a Wide Receiver, but he isn't.  William is a long snapper and is the #14 LS in the nation to Kohl's Kicking.  

"Wagner was dominant throughout the Kohl’s Southern Showcase. I have seen glimpses of his talent at previous camps but Wagner put it all on display in Atlanta. He finished camp with the second highest charting score in the country. Not only was he dominant during the charting session but he also won the camp wide snapping competition. Wagner has great size and will be able to make an immediate impact for any program in the country."

Welcome William "Braveheart" Wallace Wagner. 

  • Michigan Basketball has another weird road game today as they tip of at 6:30 in Iowa.  This will be another tough game as Iowa can score the ball vs. Michigan's great defense.  Let's hope Michigan shoots the ball well and pulls away at the end of the game.
  • The Knicks traded two Wolverines yesterday to Dallas:  Tim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke.  

  • Good Luck to Tom Brady in  his 9th Super Bowl this weekend.  

  • 5 former Wolverines on final rosters for the AAF which kicks off a week from Saturday:  Denard is on Atlanta, Ty Isaac is on Birmingham, De'Veon Smith in on Orlando, Channing Stribling is on Memphis, and Matt Godin is on San Antonio.

They tipoff at 7; I believe the radio pre-game show starts at 6:30, though.
