Not again...

Offensive Guard Torrian Wilson has again committed out of the blue, this time to Louisville. Michigan has always been in good shape with Wilson, and after he decommitted from Stanford late last year, many assumed it would be for Michigan.

He was meant to visit Michigan officially this coming weekend, but that doesn't look likely any more. One factor in Louisville's favor is having two of Wilson's teammates already committed, Corvin Lamb and Michaelee Harris. 

Still, the commitment is a surprise, I thought at the very least Michigan would get another visit from the three star prospect.

In other news, Ohio LB Jake Ryan got offered by Michigan this weekend and could commit any day now, and Rashad Knight also loved his visit, although he has a couple more trips to take. Rich Rodriguez has said the class will probably reach 26 commitments, although I think they could stretch it to 27 if a major recruit like Dillion Baxter wanted in.


  1. Recruits. Recruits. Recruits. I know it's important to get them here. But in the end, it only matters if they stick around and contribute. As Bo used to say when they asked him about his recruiting class, "Ask me in four years."

  2. It's true that a good reputation doesn't always equate to a good college career, but generally speaking teams with good recruiting classes go on to have success in 2-3 years time. Perhaps this is a wait and see class though, as Michigan has many sleeper prospects committed.
