Michigan Tuesday: Denard gets a New Job and Paging Mr. Paige

Denard Robinson has taken at offensive analyst role at Jacksonville University.  Similar to roles on Jimmy Staff, this is a paid non on-field coaching position.  Which means his duties will include: scouting, working on game plans, and also working with the players off the field.

As you know, Denard participated in the short lived AAF and it looks like he has no interest in trying out for the XFL.  We wish Denard good luck in everything he does, including becoming a full time football coach!

Hopefully, the Wolverines "Safety Dance" continues today as 4 star Makari Paige from West Bloomfield announces his commitment (5:30 PM).

Makari was a visitor this past weekend with his head coach and former Wolverine Ron Bellamy.   Paige will pick his school over his final 4 of Ohio State, PSU, Kentucky, and of course the Wolverines.  He also has offers from Oklahoma, ND, Northwestern, Wisconsin and 16 other schools. The 24/7 Composite has him ranked the #243 player in the country.  

Paige is 6'3 185 pounds and Allan Trieu best comparison is Jarrod Wilson who is now in the NFL playing for the Jaguars.  Lots of news today about Jacksonville!

If Makari picks the Wolverines he would join safeties Jordan Morant and RJ Moten in the 2020 class.   My guess is Don Brown has at least one of these guys pegged for the Viper role.
