Michigan Tuesday: Catching Up From a Long Weekend

I think I would vote for a Presidential candidate that put on their platform: 1 long weekend per month.   It just feels so good!  I also clearly took Friday off, so I'm sorry there hasn't been more content the last few days.   Time to catch up! 

Jimmy loves him some Tight Ends!  

TE recruiting as not been going so well the last few years.  When Jimmy took the job and Jake Butt was about to become a 1st round draft pick, I thought the TE cupboard would be full for years to come.  That hasn't happened and TE's have struggled in Jimmy's offenses ever since.  Michigan needed at least 2 TE's in this class and they just secured the commitment of the 2nd one (with Marlin Klein):

Colston Loveland is a 3 star TE with a 4 star offer list.   The former WR is 6'5 and 215 pounds and had impressive offers from the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Arizona, ASU, Oregon, LSU and more.  One of the reasons he might be a little under rated to the recruiting services is his home town is Gooding, Idaho and not too many services visit up there to watch the talented TE.   I believe Colston is only the 2nd player ever from Idaho to dawn the Maize and Blue.   Welcome, you will Love the Land in Ann Arbor! 

I've taken Don Brown to the woodshed on his simplistic defense for many year.  One of the things he did really well is recruit quality DE's.  Don is long gone and Michigan continues to recruit quality DE's with the commitment of  Mario Eugenio.  

Mario is a 4 star DE from Tampa who has been rising up the recruiting rankings.  He is 6'3 and now up to 240 pounds and has been impressing at summer camps and combines.   Mario visited Ann Arbor and then quickly made a commitment date.  His offer list included the likes of ASU, Arkansas, BC, GT, Miami, Oregon, Pitt and others.   Welcome big man and I can't wait to see you chase QB's in the Big House.  

Michigan now has the 10th recruiting class to 24/7 and making moves up the rankings! 

  • Devante Jones has decided to withdraw from the NBA Draft and will head to Ann Arbor to run the point.  Hunter?
  • Myles Pollard a TN CB has put Michigan in his top 3.  Sam Webb has a CB for Myles to Michigan. 
  • Moe Wagner is balling for Germany, scored 28 points and got them into the Olympics. 
  • Illinois Kofi Cockburn is in the transfer portal, he is also currently in the NBA Draft. 
  • Corn Wheeler Dealer is heading to Kansas 
  • Former Michigan CB Ross Douglas has taken a role with the New England Patriots.

Kofi Cockburn is in the transfer portal? I would've thought that someone like him would be the last person in CB to transfer. I wonder if something is up in Champaign? I might be the last person to find out! LOL!!!
