Michigan Monday: Welcome to the Dead Period

NCAA football coaches are no longer able to see recruits face to face for over a month starting today.   The good thing is that the early signing period starts on Wednesday and Michigan is looking to get most of its class cemented this week. 

Michigan hosted a number of recruits and transfers this weekend and hopes to hear announcements soon.  Here is a quick update:

  • Deone Walker took his visits to Michigan and UK this past weekend.  Some reports are that Michigan was able to mend some fences but probably still UK's to lose.  He is expected to announce on Wednesday (recent news is he may wait until Feb).  Michigan holds a strong lead in the prediction market, but many of those predictions were made this summer. 
  • WR Darrius Clemons took a visit to Ann Arbor this past weekend, which was his final official visit.  Auburn was feeling very confident about his recruitment prior to the visit this past weekend.   DC will also commit on Wednesday.  (2 new 24/7 Predictions have come in for Michigan today)
  • LB Derrick Moore was expected in but no news on his visit.  He was an Oklahoma commit but decommitted recently and played for Biff at St. Frances.  Would be a huge get at the bell, but his recruitment is a bit quiet at the moment.  (will announce on Wednesday 2:25)
  • 5-star WA OT Josh Conerly will wait to sign during the second NSD in February. 
  • No update on VA Tech commit QB Alex Orji or S Keon Sabb.  
  • Michigan coaches were in to see ND commit WR Amorion Walker this weekend. 
  • Hutch finished a very respectfully 2nd in the Heisman voting - He also won the Lott Impact Trophy on Sunday.  My guess is, he is tired of banquet food. 
  • Urban Meyer is a disaster in JAX 
  • Brian Kelly has lost his mind @ LSU 
  • Quin Ewers has transferred from OSU to Texas.  The kid knows how to attract NIL $$$
  • Georgia's DC takes the head coaching job at Oregon.  He will stay with the Dawgs through the CFP.   Good luck with that. 
  • Ferris State is undefeated and in the D2 National Championship 

***** As always, I will post every LOI that Michigan receives on Wednesday.  It's a fun day here at the BHB and the biggest traffic day of the year.  Come early and often and let's watch together as the news breaks and the class comes together on the fly.

Urban is truly losing his crap. We should start a pool here as to how many more games (or if you're daring, seasons) he lasts.
