The big news from last night is that Antonio Poole is expected to announce for Michigan tonight, after having an in-home visit with the new LB coach and Greg Mattison. Sam Webb announced Michigan has another silent commit in the form of a four star LB, which means it has to be Poole really. TomVH is also hinting everyone should tune in tonight for the press conference.
Poole would be a fine addition to the class, and his commitment would confirm just how good a recruiter Greg Mattison really is. Poole wasn't even a lock to visit Michigan this weekend, let alone commit.
My only query is what does this do to Frank Clark and Leilon Willingham? With Kellen Jones and Brennen Beyer already committed, would Michigan take five LBs? Or would Beyer move back to DE? Clark is being recruited as a S/LB hybrid, so that might be why they can take all three.
*EDIT*: Thanks Will, forgot about Desmond Morgan; so that's a potential six LBs in this class.
Frank Clark will now announce on signing day along with the rest of the Glenville bunch. His final three are Michigan, MSU and UNC; and right now Michigan has the edge.
As for Willingham, he'll announce this Wednesday, so look out for that too.
- Michigan offered Trayion Durham, a FB from Ohio. He's a former Wisconsin commit and a consensus top five FB in the country. He's rumored to be high on Michigan right now, and should take a visit to Ann Arbor this weekend.
- OT Ryan Nowicki is also a candidate to visit Michigan. He's a current Penn State commitment from Arizona. Things aren't looking that good with Jake Fisher right now, so the staff are looking to find a replacement before signing day. Fisher is quite high on Oregon apparently.
