A slow week for recruiting...
- Rich Rodriguez is accused of NCAA violations from his time at West Virginia, which can't help recruiting. The allegations are similar to the ones at Michigan, e.g graduate assistants sitting in coaches' meetings etc.
- Michigan CB prospect Valdez Showers has Michigan in his final six schools along with Florida, MSU, Iowa, Northwestern and Auburn. He always speaks highly of the SEC schools, and he definitely enjoyed himself in Gainesville.
- In-state RB Thomas Rawls will take his SAT test in the second week in September, which will be crucial for him. If he does well, offers from the likes of Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa and Wisconsin could follow. Rawls likes Michigan a lot, and will visit unofficially sometime this month to hang out with Coach Jackson and get a feel for the campus.
Michigan ideally wants to take Demetrius Hart and Rawls as a big back in this class.
