Recruiting Updates

EDIT: I've decided to close down the whole "Big Board" idea only a couple weeks into its existence! The main reasons for this are the inflexibility of the blogspot posting format and the time it takes to maintain and update. I think the general idea was sound, but with a new semester's work load to deal with, I simply don't have the time to run it properly right now. So the blog is essentially back to normal. I'm going to start posting a lot on Twitter, so make sure you follow me here!

Anyway, on with the updates!

New offers are still flying out, hard to keep track right now.

- Five Star RB Keith Marshall has picked up a Michigan offer, and is rumored to interested in the Wolverines. However, Michigan will have to top some tough competition to even get an official visit come fall. For now we have to take a wait and see approach.

- Royce Jenkins-Stone received a scholarship offer from Oklahoma this week, which is obviously a pretty big deal. It looks like Royce is going to be a big time recruit in this class, ESPN even upgraded him to an ESPN 150 Watch Lister.

- Jordan Diamond will be taking an unofficial visit to Michigan this weekend, however he won't be competing in drills at the Michigan/Midwest Showcase event. This is a great opportunity for Michigan to cement themselves as the favorite for Diamond.

- Andrus Peat, a five star Offensive lineman finally got his Michigan offer this week. He's from Arizona (which seems to be churning out top O-Line guys each year now), so let's hope he knows Taylor Lewan! Unfortunately Andrus' brother signed with Nebraska last year, which means the Cornhuskers are probably an early favorite.


  1. WR Malik Gilmore
    WR Leonte Caroo
    WR Dorial Green-Beckham

  2. When it's all said and done, don't be surprised is RJS commits to Oklahoma. It is clear I want him to go to AA, he claims he is wide open UM maybe his childhood team, that does not meen he is going blue 100% upfront.

  3. I dont get it. When a kid is offered by his dream school, the school he grew up following, his childhood favorite school. There is no reason that he shouldn't be all blue. Yes there is a great deal of respect going out to him from a lot of other schools. This just doesnt make any sense to me, cause maybe if i was good enough to get a scholly offer from michigan and not just d2 schools i would have jumped on it right away. I guess im not this kid, but best of luck to him where ever he goes

  4. Logan, you have to remember the last three years, Michigan has been one of the worst teams in the country. I'm thinking if they make a run at the big ten title this year, you will see a lot more firm commits.
