Stars mean nothing, when you watch the NFL draft, check out what their high school rankings were, way too many flew under the radar for the scouting services to be proved accurate. So many 'top' prospects don't pan out, whether it be for off the field issues, or the fact that they just aren't good enough. I've come to the conclusion that its pretty pointless following the recruitment of a kid from March -> Signing day when: 1) there's a good chance he won't sign with you; and 2) there's a good chance that he won't be the player you hope he'll be.
So for these reasons, I'm sorry to say that this will be the last post on MGoRecruit.
I'd like to thank all of you for your continued support over the last two and a half years, I never really imagined that the site would become so popular - 6 million hits! I started the blog because I was bored over the summer and loved Michigan football; of course I still love Michigan football, but nowadays I just won't have the time to keep the blog running with high quality. So again, thank you so much for following the blog and putting up with my recruiting ramblings for so long!
Fortunately for you, as Michigan fans there are plenty of ways to get your recruiting fix. The godfather of UM recruiting is and always will be Sam Webb, and I can't recommend his morning radio show and/or podcasts enough. They really do cover all the important stories, and if anyone has an idea where a recruit is going, it's Sam. Then you have another great free source over at MGoBlog, which I'm sure you already know about, but its worth mentioning that Ace does a great job over there.
I haven't spoken much with SimplyComplex lately, but I'm sure he'll continue to work in the field of Michigan recruiting, so make sure you follow him here on twitter. I'd also like to thank him for the great contributions he's made to the site over the last month.
So yeah, that's it. Best of luck to all you in whatever you're up to the future, and thanks for everything.
