D-Line Updates

- I'll start with the bad news. Johnathan Hankins has put Ohio State at the top of his list after the official visit to Columbus last weekend. The three star DT from Michigan will make his decision fairly soon, and the Buckeyes will now be favored, but the distance factor might just keep UM in it.

- In other news, Richard Ash is rumored to be on the verge of taking back his commitment to West Virginia. If this were to happen, Michigan would likely be the school to take Ash, a three star DT from Pahokee, FL.

- Arguably the top DT left on Michigan's board is Georgia prospect, Michael Thornton, who could be looking at a Jan 15th visit to UM.


  1. Richard Ash seems to have the quickness needed. Let's hope RR can convince him to follow some of the other Florida kids up here.

    As for Thornton, he would be an impact player from the get-go and would be a huge lift to the D-line. Let's hope he choices the winged-helmut...

    Thanks for the awesome updates BenjiMichigan!!!

  2. Ahh I love the comments!
    The feeling is that Ash is probably going to Michigan now, probably! That's just me speculating. I think the Pahokee connection holds strong, and he chooses UM within the next few weeks. Thornton is a real long shot at the moment, but if they get him on campus in January then who knows!
