Michigan Monday: Early Week Recruiting Blitz

This was an interesting weekend for Wolverines fans.  Michigan sleep walks through a game against an FCS team, Wisconsin beats Steven Threet by a blocked extra point, Iowa goes down 14 points before they get off the plane in Arizona and can't catch up, former Wolverine Ryan Mallet beats Georgia in the last minute, MSU beats ND in overtime on a fake field goal and then their head coach goes down with a heart attack later that night/next morning. 

Instead of pointing out all the problems Michigan has on defense, I thought I would re-cap some of the news regarding Michigan's football recruiting. 

  • Just when you thought it was safe to pencil in Dee Hart into Michigan's 2011 class, the electric tailback from Orlando visited Auburn this weekend and got to witness a crazy atmosphere in an OT win over Clemson.  Dee rated the visit a 9 out of 10 and the only way it would have been at 10 is if he committed.  He said he is done with visits and will make a decision soon.   BTW: Dee had a great day on the field this weekend as wellHart carried 18 times for 224 yards and scored on runs of 17, 7, and 88. He added a fourth TD on a 33-yard pass from junior quarterback Nick Patti, who threw for four scores."It was a great effort," Hart said. "We had a lot of minor distractions. We came together to win."  So now the big question is, Will Dee's love for Michigan overcome his weekend at Auburn?  A decision could be coming as soon as this week.

  • TomVH from Mgoblog updates us two visitors this weekend, Chris Bryant and 2012 prospect Jordan Diamond from Chicago.  Chris:  "That visit was great, I liked everything a lot. I don't think I'm going to wait until signing day now, but I'm not ready yet to make my decision."  Chris would like to visit U of M a couple more times and plans on making a decision before signing day now.  Jordan: The game was cool, it was crazy. My mom and aunt both loved it too. The coaches told me that I will be getting an offer on August 1st, so that was great.  Jordan was told he would be offered my Michigan as soon as official offers go out for 2012 prospect in August of next year.

  • Charles Jackson a highly rated CB from from Klein, Texas is considering taking a visit to Michigan.  Charles is 5'11, 180 lbs. and rated 4 stars from Rivals.

  • No word yet on how Kris Frost visit to Auburn went.  Don't be surprised if he had a similar reaction to the Dee's. 
  • Two Michigan coaches saw Anthony Zettel play this weekend.
