Midwest Showcase Event

Today is the Midwest Showcase, which is hosted annually on the campus of the University of Michigan; which is a nice recruiting advantage. The event draws in some top talents, and gives them a chance to look round Ann Arbor and the campus.

There are some big names around today, including Jordan Diamond (not working out), Dan O'Brien, James Ross, Royce Jenkins-Stone, Terry Richardson, Jarrod Wilson, Corey Smith, Ron Thompson and a host of others.

Both James Ross and RJS were on campus yesterday as well, and the latter was very impressed with what he saw, according to his tweet:

"Had a great day today visited @BradyHoke and the Michigan Fam. Say iam the next #Ray Lewis."

(Side note: @BradyHoke is not the real Coach Hoke; he's not a fan of twitter at all)

No word on how Ross found his unofficial visit, but with Mattison throwing Ray Lewis comparisons around, one would guess it probably went well.

I'll have more on the event tomorrow.


  1. Is Matt Godin in attendence?

  2. Yeah I think he will be, he's trying to earn an offer from Michigan.

  3. When can we expect Rivals to have their 2012 rankings?

  4. Matt Godin was there and recieved his offer. he is no longet "done" with Michigan since he seemed pretty happy when he got news of his offer

  5. i also think that "the next Ray Lewis" could be on the michigan roster already. Jake Ryan is listed as 6'3" and 225 lbs and was called a tackling machine by teammates during the previous season. he could emerge in spring and suprise everyone. at least thats what i "hoke" happens
