Long way till signing day...

Lets face it, in modern college football, a verbal commitment doesn't mean that much; players decommit all the time, just like Justice Hayes did last week. 

Michigan has lost out on a few players recently to other schools, but don't count the Wolverines out just yet. DeAnthony Arnett, Sammy Watkins and Ha'sean Clinton-Dix all have three things in common. Firstly, they are all committed to other schools over Michigan. Secondly, they are all very, very good players. Thirdly, and most importantly, they all have a close friend committed to Michigan.

With Arnett, it's newly committed athlete Justice Hayes. The two are good friends and with Hayes looking to play in the slot, you can bet he's telling Arnett how much he wants to play alongside him at Michigan.

Watkins of course has Dallas Crawford, one of his best friends who committed to UM earlier this month. Crawford still hasn't taken his official to Michigan, so when he does, will he bring Watkins with him again? There's certainly a chance here.

Lastly, HCD has best friend Dee Hart going to Michigan, and also former Dr Phillips WR Ricardo Miller. Like Crawford, Hart will also be visiting Ann Arbor this Winter, and could well bring HCD along for the ride. Miracles could happen.


  1. I think we have to bring Jeff Casteel from WVU. What do you think about this?

  2. Especially if we can beat the suckeyes!

  3. I think we should bring the guy who took over head coach (defensive coordinator) at west virginia after rodriguez left

  4. *former defensive coordinator I think his first name is Bill

  5. Jeff Casteel was originally set to join Rich Rod at Michigan, but decided to stay at WVU when Bill Stewart took over.
    If RR does decide to part ways with GRob, then Casteel would certainly be a candidate as he can run the 3-3-5 very well.

  6. Yea lets stay positive i think we have the best shot at Arnett, it wont take long for him to see that Michigans Offense is more potent then Vols. Then Sammy Watkins. Then HCD. HCD will be the hardest to swing i dont think he wants to play in the cold, but the upside for him would be he would start IMEDIATLY!
