Michigan Thursday: Is Michigan Losing Momentum with 4 Star WR?

Xavier Worthy is a California WR that is very high on Michigan's 2021 board.   He is 6'1 and a light 160 pounds but can fly.   He ran the 100 meters in 10.55, which is considered elite speed.

He has a ton of offers from the likes of USC, PSU, Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Auburn, Wash, Oregon, and of course Michigan.   Many believe its a Michigan - Oregon battle for this west coast speedster.

Xavier seems to be set with his decision and has made an announcement date of 6/27.   The issue is for Wolverine fans is that all the crystal balls are trending to Oregon with high confidence.   Michigan still has a couple of weeks to change his mind but its not looking great right now.

  • A quiet piece of news happened for an ASU punter.  Michael Turk left ASU early and declared for the NFL Draft (which is very strange for a punter) and signed with an agent.  He preformed poorly at the NFL combine and didn't get drafted or even sign a free agent contract.   So due to the COVID-19 virus and not being able to showcase his skills, he summitted a waiver to be re-instated by the NCAA.  The NCAA granted that waiver and gave him 2 years of eligibility back.   It's important to note that Turk did not receive any money from his agent.  

  • Don't watch ESPN tonight as they are replaying the Kordell Stewart Hail Mary game.  Was in the Big House that day and don't want to re-live that feeling.  I will never forget looking around a 110,000 people and seeing nothing but a stunned reaction on each one of their faces.
