Ondre Pipkins gets 5th star

Title says it all really. After a stellar showing at the Army All American game, Michigan DT commit Ondre Pipkins has picked up a 5th star on rivals.com. The analysts at rivals don't give out a 5th star to that many players (in comparison to scout), so this is quite an achievement.

Rivals will bring out their full rankings for the 2012 class in stages throughout the week. I believe the top 100 comes out tomorrow?

  5. lol, yes, we can talk about Michigan's chances with Pipkins :P They seem good!

    I created that rule to stop the Stefon Diggs speculation that clearly wasn't going to end well!

  8. What are UM chances of landing Kozan? I read UM is recruiting him to play center. He would make a good addition to this class. If UM could land Kozan and Garnett that would finish off this class nicely.

    I am not getting the warm fuzzy feeling from Reeves. I am getting the feeling he is going to the dark side.

  9. Jer,

    Kozan recently came out with a top 3 of Auburn, Iowa, and Michigan. I'd say Michigan is in a pretty good position with him. They're recruiting him as a center and a guard. I think we have a 30% chance with him, though.

  10. Congrats to Pee Wee! It will be interesting to see if anyone else in this class moves up.

  11. Jordan Payton is looking at other schools including Michigan due to a coaching change at Cal.

  13. Reports of Gunner Kiel decommitting again and now going to ND.

  14. Gunner Kiel is soooooo overrated!
    As much as Payton has pissed me off, I would like to see him playing WR here at Michigan. He is good possession receiver and a big body, we need that.

    Hope the bball team beats MSU tomorrow :)

    1. Don't forget when Payton was annoucing at the all star game UM did not have a hat on the table. So I think that ship has sailed.

    2. I forgot about that but who knows! Coaches have been out and about on the West Coast, maybe a visit was paid and some words were said that got him thinking. All I know is that we can use all the wideouts we can get!

  15. Davon,
    I read the roundtable. Nice.
    But why does everyone still think Wright is coming to UM? I thought UM gave up on him?

  16. Welcome Devon.

    This is good news, he shouldn't have to redshirt @ 325!! That's one big boy. If him and big will can own the middle our run D is going to be sick! Need a couple DE's to step up, I'm just not sure who that'll be. Does anyone expect anybody in this class to start against bama? I'm thinkin peewee for sure.

  17. Thanks. I'll probably end up positing the Roundtable on here tomorrow.

    I think the reason why people are so high on Wright is because nobody "really" knows the truth about his status with Michigan. Theres been conflicting reports on whether or not Michigan has stopped recruiting him, but until something concrete comes out, I'd say Wright to Michigan is still a possibility.

    1. Wright didn't end up visiting this weekend.

  18. I don't think Wright made the trip to AA. Reeves is visiting ohio this weekend as well. Who knows what's going to happen. The more I search the web for info, the more names get put in the hat. I would love to see Payton on board though.

  20. Michigan is visiting Jordan Payton at his home on Thursday. Coach Hoke has told him that we are taking 3 WRs and he the remaining WR Michigan wants.

    Btw, Pee Wee tweeted him and Jordan was quick to respond!

    Go Blue! Commitment watch?!?!?

    1. If we are going after 3 WR, does that mean Stonum is out?

      Delete
    2. Very possible assumption

  21. Either that or they don't like their chances with some of the remaining prospects so they are going to take a 3rd receiver instead of a TE or DB. I think Garnett is the only sure thing.
