- Jake Fisher is still committed but has opened his recruitment back up. He's been talking to MSU, ND, PSU and Oregon, so the competition could be tough if Michigan doesn't bring in the right coach. He'll take an official to MSU, and possibly the other three if they offer. If he likes the new coach, and forms a good relationship, don't worry about him.
- Jack Miller has also been hearing from a lot of schools, but it looks like Boston College is the only one that could challenge Michigan. Miller is likely to stick to his pledge no matter who is brought in. No really worried.
- Dallas Crawford will take an official visit to Miami, his childhood favorite school. USC have also sparked some interest, but I don't think he'll visit them. This is the one I'm most worried about right now, but I think if Les Miles comes in, Crawford will stay.
*EDIT* : Crawford is no longer classed as a Michigan commit, and he will visit USC officially after speaking with Monte Kiffin. Michigan is still in the race of course, but right now it's looking doubtful unless they bring in the right guy. LSU offered Crawford, so if Miles ends up in Ann Arbor that would really help, because it shows his staff has been interested for a while.
- Joining Crawford on his official visit to Miami will be kicker Matt Goudis. I'm not really sure why the coaching change matters that much to a kicker, but alas; he's opened it up.
- Kellen Jones is another one picking up interest from the Canes, they will probably offer him shortly, trying to get him to at least visit. He's just waiting to see who the next coach of Michigan is before locking things down.
- Blake Countess has also opened it up, but to be honest I don't see him leaving the class. Basically if the new coach comes in and says he wants Blake at Michigan, then he'll stay. He chose Michigan the school, not the coach.
- In stater Raymon Taylor is still really interested in Michigan, and he'll visit officially once a new coach is in place. He's not exactly a consensus four star, so might have to see if the new staff want him first...
- Chris Bryant has delayed his decision until later this month, i.e when Michigan should have a coach. He loves Michigan as a school, and whilst he didn't want RR to go, I think Michigan still leads. If they bring in the right guy, expect him to go blue.
A lot of these issues will be resolved as soon as the new coach is announced. I think if Dave Brandon brings in a big name coach, Michigan will keep all of these commits, presuming they are all wanted by the new staff.
Michigan is going to meet with Les Miles, and by the sounds of it, he could well accept the job. Miles has been a good recruiter and is one of few possible candidates that I would actually have faith in to hold the class together and perhaps make a steal on signing day.
