Johnathan Hankins (3* DT) could decide his collegiate decision as soon as this Thursday, but his plans may not include Michigan. Whilst he insisted Michigan is not completely out of the running, he did say that Ohio State and Florida are the frontrunners.
Michigan and Alabama are in the trailing pack, and it looks like Rich Rod will have to use his snake oil to lure the talented prospect to Ann Arbor. Due to the shock announcement of Urban Meyer's resignation/leave of absence at Florida, I would put Ohio State as the clear favorite here.
Hankins' family still remain Michigan fans, and they might try to push the Wolverines effort, but some kind of in home talk is needed to persuade Hankins to join UM.
