If you haven't already heard, Urban Meyer has resigned as the head coach of the Florida Gators, after leading them to two national titles in three years. You may wonder why this is coming up on a Michigan recruiting blog, well wonder no more!
- DEE HART - he surprised a lot of people by naming Florida as his alternative choice to Michigan earlier this week, instead of the presumed Alabama. If Meyer is no longer there, does this push Hart back closer to the Wolverines?
- Valdez Showers - the talented Michigan native chose the Gators over UM and MSU earlier this year; will Meyer's departure cause him to re-open his recruitment, and would the Wolverines make a play for a speedy and versatile player?
- TIM JERNIGAN - an extremely important recruit for a lot of schools; Jernigan may have left Florida out of his top four, but many still expected the Gators to land Jernigan eventually, after all he lives in their backyard and grew up a massive fan of UF. Meyer leaving can only help the Wolverines here.
- The Bowl game? - Yes, believe it or not this news could possibly affect whether Michigan wins it's bowl game. Dan Mullen, the current coach of MSU has to be one of the favorites to take over at Florida, who need his offensive mind back in charge. You can bet he's already got a call from Florida's AD, so would he be tempted to leave MSU before the bowl game? Leaving Michigan to face a team without a coach.
Interesting news to say the least.
