I've just seen that Chris Barnett has left the program, when did this happen? I swear I've been checking all the main UM sites for team news this week, and somehow I must have missed this.
Freshman TE Chris Barnett, who basically switched to UM on signing day has left, leaving the TE position pretty light for this year. I really hope Ricardo Miller comes good now!
Will this effect recruiting? Maybe. Ron Thompson is the only TE left on Michigan's board, but we don't even know for sure that he has a committable offer. If I were Hoke, I'd be awfully tempted to take Thompson should Michigan lose out on Brionte Dunn, or a 6th OL. Thompson is a great prospect who's excelled at camps and combines this year, and with Kevin Koger departing UM after this year, the coaches might feel they now need him in this class.
Extra: We also have to think about the possibility that A.J Williams makes the switch to OL.
