Well that's a bit of a surprise. A lot of prospects seem to be accelerating their recruiting timetables.
Pike is the one of the top QB's in the nation and has offers from practically everywhere, but Michigan really impressed him a few weeks back on his visit. In fact after that visit I would say UM was definitely his #1 school.
However since then Zeke has basically been on a tour of the SEC, looking at LSU, Arkansas, Tennessee, Georgia and Auburn; plus Clemson from the ACC. So its quite possible that one of these schools has leapfrogged into the lead.
In fact, some guy on Twitter (MilesFomby) just said Auburn has landed a big time silent commitment; so he's probably talking about Pike. I hate Auburn.
I know he really enjoyed his visit to Arkansas, so with this Auburn tweet, its probably safe to say that Michigan isn't the choice. Shame
UPDATE: Allen Trieu just tweeted the finalists. "#Clemson, #Michigan, #Auburn, #Arkansas, #Tennessee, #Purdue, #NorthCarolina"
UPDATE #2: Things change fast. Miles Fomby has just said that Zeke Pike wasn't the big commitment for Auburn, although the Tigers may still get him too.
CONCLUSION: It's been a while since this story broke, and all the buzz is around Auburn. Scout's Auburn site has the story on their front page, Michigan's doesn't...
