Michigan Friday: News and Notes

  • Michigan Basketball will finally have a recruit in the McDonalds All American Game, Isaiah Todd was selected to the team.   So was Josh Christopher who has Michigan in his final group along with Greg Brown who is also considering Michigan.  Who was the last Michigan player in the game?  Daniel Horton hears a who.  The year? 2002.  Yikes! 

  • Shea is having a very bad senior bowl experience: "He struggled with accuracy and had no zip to power through wind when throwin into it," draft analyst Matt Miller said on Day 1. "I don't think he's draftable". And then there were the muffed exchanges early on Day 2, which ground practice to a halt.  That does not sound good for the former 5 star QB and experiences Michigan fans can relate to.  

  • Good feedback on Ben at the senior bowl:  One player Bears fans should highlight as a name to watch is Michigan offensive lineman Ben Bredeson. He looked the part on Tuesday. He has strong hands and the kind of powerful playing style that tends to lead to success in the NFL. He showed pretty good feet, too. He has a chance to rise up the board if he stacks two more positive practices together.

  • Michigan seems to have offered Cade McNamara's brother in the 2020 class.  He is 5'8 and 170 pounds WR. Its unknown if its a scholarship offer or a walk-on.   24/7 reports two offers from Ohio State and CMU.   I can understand the Central offer but I'm pretty sure the OSU offer is no longer available.   He is rated a 2 star and #3195 player in the country.  Best guess this is a walk-on offer. 

  • Where in the world is Anthony Campanile? He was not announced with the new coaches hired by the Miami Dolphins last week and is not on the team's website list of coaches.   Is this a timing thing or has AC cost himself his current job, two DC's offers, and an NFL gig for some reason?

  • Shaq's son Shareef is transferring from UCLA, he has played limited minutes this season after sitting out last year with a heart condition.  Reports are that Josh Christopher and Shareef are good friends.   Shaq of course knows Juwan from his time in the NBA.
