Michigan seems to be pulling out all stops to get McGregor in the fold. He's supposed to be making 5 visits over spring break and then releasing a top 10 sometime in March/April. He says his timeline is anytime between April and August and he plans to enroll early.
Wolverines Wire has a great interview with him: Link
|02/16/2019 - 8:41pm||I'd rather see Iowa win…||
I'd rather see Iowa win. Makes our loss to them look better. Wiscy had been doing well recently too which is good for us. PSU is a crapshoot. Can't make that look good
|02/16/2019 - 6:56pm||Ruiz is a great choice. I'm…||
Ruiz is a great choice. I'm gonna throw Aidan Hutchinson in there as well. He's a solid Anchor and I can imagine him in the NFL for a long time.
|02/13/2019 - 3:54pm||That was more of a result of…||
That was more of a result of Drevnos poor recruiting. Rogers put the top 13 in June last year. Since then, Warriner has been putting in work to recruit him and he’s been on campus several times. Though it seems like he wants to go south. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up at Georgia or Bama
|02/13/2019 - 3:27pm||Seems like a huge group of…||
Seems like a huge group of visitors from St. Frances. It would be awesome to get a pipeline going from that school, especially with Biff Poggi hyping Michigan up for his players

I believe they're trending for Enokk Vimahi, #7 guard in the country. Unfortunately, they'll survive.

At Knoxville attending Tennessee
|02/05/2019 - 6:07pm||That seems like a serious…||
That seems like a serious conclusion. Is this because he is unlikely to meet his academic goals, or because there's something more going on. Or maybe because he may bounce to the NFL as a UDFA and see what happens there
|02/01/2019 - 5:26pm||If true our RB situation…||
If true our RB situation becomes dire. Wilson will be the only back with significant experience. Turner will get significant snaps along with Charbonnet. Fortunately Charbonnet enrolled early. Hopefully Barrett and Haskins move back to RB.
|02/01/2019 - 2:02pm||Lack of crystal balls doesn…||
Lack of crystal balls doesn't mean that Michigan is out of top 100 recruits. I doubt that Michigan will stop recruiting Myles Hinton. They are definitely recruiting Jay Butterfield hard, as well as Julian Fleming, Justin Rogers, Rakim Jarrett, Darrion Henry, AJ Henning, Jacolbe Cowan, Andrew Raym, Javian Hester, Mookie Cooper, and Enzo Jennings.
In addition, it's still early. There may be new names that will pop up with more offers being sent out. No one thought Daxton Hill and Michigan would have a relationship this time last year. It sucks not having a 5 star committed like Chris Hinton to start the class, because that elevates the image of the class. But Michigan is still in the mix for many top targets.
Also, don't forget that there is a lot of movement in rankings with camp season in the summer so there may be recruits on the outside that end up being top 100 or even 5 star recruits by the end of it.
|02/01/2019 - 1:09pm||It'll be interesting how…||
It'll be interesting how Michigan plays its WR recruiting this cycle after signing 5 WRs in 2019 (4 if Sainristil ends up at DB).
After getting 4 slot types in 2019, the goal would be to get as many outside types to complement them. They already have Kalil Branham locked up. In addition, they have Rashawn Williams, Devell Washington, Ian Stewart that are high on Michigan. And several elite WRs (Julian Fleming, Rakim Jarrett, Javian Hester, Michael Redding) that Michigan is targeting. Jadon Thompson, Mike Wyman, Jaden Dottin, Traeshon Holden have also been connected to Michigan. Sam also mentioned Earnest Sanders on today's recruiting roundup as someone to watch.
In addition to the outside types, there are several slot types who are high on Michigan (Henning, Downs).
I'm assuming a 25ish member class for 2020 so maybe 4 WRs with at least 3 being outside WRs. Maybe 5 if they take someone like Ian Stewart who could play safety.
|01/31/2019 - 4:44pm||Considering that holders are…||
Considering that holders are usually walk on QBs, that would be Andy Maddox. Other QBs with PWO offers (from touch-the-banner) Ren Hefley, and Cole Kosco.
|01/31/2019 - 4:34pm||The top 15 long snappers are…||
The top 15 long snappers are 5 stars. It doesn't mean much, but thought I'd throw it in there
|01/30/2019 - 10:07pm||Can't update original. He…||
Can't update original. He was offered a PWO.
|01/30/2019 - 3:40pm||There's nothing wrong in…||
There's nothing wrong in being skeptic of being successful on those lofty goals. I think we would all have been happy to have DJ Carton and I remember that the board was disappointed that he did not choose Michigan. However, now that he is signed with OSU, he is a rival and I hope he has a successful career but always plays his worst game against Michigan.
|01/30/2019 - 3:37pm||They probably just sold him…||
They probably just sold him on playing time. He was not going to get significant minutes at Michigan, especially with Zavier finally solidifying his role as a defensive beast, and Brooks coming in. Dakich played significant minutes at OSU
|01/30/2019 - 3:36pm||or Zeb Jackson (also a PG)…||
or Zeb Jackson (also a PG) in the class of 2020
|01/28/2019 - 5:35pm||Agreed. I'm surprised Jordan…||
Agreed. I'm surprised Jordan Glasgow hasn't gotten a scholarship yet considering how much he has played.
|01/28/2019 - 4:19pm||So he did. Did not know that…||
So he did. Did not know that. Well then Iggy has some ways to go but if he keeps playing the way he is right now, I can see him breaking that record.
|01/28/2019 - 3:36pm||"Untold". As if there aren't…||
"Untold". As if there aren't a whole bunch of documentaries and tv specials about this already.
|01/28/2019 - 2:51pm||Michigan v Houston just for…||
Michigan v Houston just for the ending. I basically went a full 180 from despair to absolute elation.
|01/26/2019 - 3:01pm||Really hope he finds a place…||
Really hope he finds a place in the NFL. He may be a little short as a RB (in terms of taking on blockers). But he can be explosive as a downhill and a left to right runner.
I really hope Gattis starts throwing to RBs more. That would be a perfect quick passing option that can get yards in chunks
|01/26/2019 - 1:39pm||I was wondering why he hadn…||
I was wondering why he hadn't been offered yet since everything I've read about him make it sound like he's an explosive player at a position of need. Figured it was because he had been playing LB until his sophomore year, so he has only one year of tape on him playing DT.
Also of note, walk on CB Hunter Reynolds is on scholarship now. Currently a sophomore so he has 2-3 years left on the team.
|01/25/2019 - 11:32pm||Also this does not take away…||
Also this does not take away a scholarship from the 2020 class either.
|01/25/2019 - 11:22am||That seems like a pretty…||
That seems like a pretty high bar to set. I would be very happy if we closed out the LBs with Kalel Mullings and Ethan West. That would make for a very strong LB class.
|01/25/2019 - 12:29am||#1. His name is Brendan…||
#1. His name is Brendan White
#2. It doesn't. He's a senior and will be graduating at the end of this year so most likely it just helps him out for his final year. From the post though, it looks like he may get a 5th year, in which case we are down one scholarship for next year.
|01/24/2019 - 1:39pm||He's done well for himself…||
He's done well for himself so far. Le Moyne had two great years the past 2 years and even went to the D2 Elite Eight. Obviously he's far away from being the head coach at Michigan. But if he keeps moving up and proving himself, then it wouldn't be surprising for Michigan to look at him. My expectation though is that at minimum, there is going to be another coach after beilein before pat would be even under consideration
|01/23/2019 - 2:00pm||Misses yes. But not for a…||
Misses yes. But not for a lack of trying. It just didn't work out. PSU will have quite a LB core with Brandon Smith and Lance Dixon as well as Micah Parsons last year. Those are great LBs with size and speed.
|01/23/2019 - 1:53pm||Dax down 16 to #23 (#14 in…||
Dax down 16 to #23 (#14 in Composite - 5 star)
Charbonnet down 12 to #38 (#46 in Composite - 4 star)
Hinton up 57 to #47 (#31 in Composite - now a 5 star)
Trente up 88 to #109 (#108 in Composite - 4 star)
C. Johnson up 25 to #160 (#176 in Composite - 4 star)
Barnhart up 86 to #161 (#265 in Composite - 4 star)
Mazi up 70 to #170 (#105 in Composite - 4 star)
Rumler down 10 to #179 (#175 in Composite - 4 star)
Keegan down 11 to #184 (#177 in Composite - 4 star)
Ojabo down 12 to #220 (#315 in Composite - 4 star)
G. Jackson down 8 to #223 (#304 in Composite - 4 star)
|01/23/2019 - 9:52am||Agreed on Iggy. I was happy…||
Agreed on Iggy. I was happy to see Iggy snap out of his slump. When he gets going, he's a beast on the field. That being said, there are far too many possessions where he's driving to the basket and gets blocked and has no where to go. If he sees the gap closing, he has to find someone else to pass it to.
Our Offense will get back to normal eventually. It's abnormal for all of Matthews, Iggy, and Poole to slump at the same time and that killed us at Wiscy. If 2 out of 3 are hitting on a given night, with Teske providing a steady stream of points, we should be okay. I would also be happy with Brooks or Johns emerging as an offensive option as well. Brooks reminds me of MAAR in his ability to create his own shot, but he doesn't close it out often enough.
|01/20/2019 - 10:18pm||Brady was outstanding today…||
Brady was outstanding today. He seems to have no WR help except Edelman. Gronk isn't what he used to be. But, Pats do have a great RB group between Michel, White, and Burkhead.
|01/20/2019 - 10:16pm||Fuck Yeah! LET'S GOOOOOOOOO||
Fuck Yeah! LET'S GOOOOOOOOO
|01/19/2019 - 5:31pm||It's early for 2020 offers.||
It's early for 2020 offers. Especially if you're not an elite player.
|01/18/2019 - 4:05pm||Williams would be good. I…||
Williams would be good. I would opt for a great DE over him though so I hope they go for Clelin Ferrell. Either way first 2 picks should be defense for sure. They can get a decent TE/WR in Round 3 onwards.
|01/18/2019 - 1:53pm||Do D-line coaches normally…||
Do D-line coaches normally make more than other defensive assistants? I would think Campanile would make more than Nua since he has had more history of success
|01/16/2019 - 8:34pm||They will always have good…||
They will always have good teams but damn, Saban must be considering retiring soon. This must be exhausting for him.
|01/16/2019 - 8:32pm||Agreed. I'm not a fan of the…||
Agreed. I'm not a fan of the ND scheduling or the fact that MSU/OSU are away in the same year. But overall, I don't hear about Warde much and that's exactly how it should be.
|01/16/2019 - 1:31pm||Problem is that Hurts can't…||
Problem is that Hurts can't throw as well as Murray or Mayfield. Unless Oklahoma's scheme is super simple to learn and Riley really is a crazy QB whisperer
|01/16/2019 - 1:24pm||Seems like they have changed…||
Seems like they have changed. You can see the difference if you click on rank history and see if there was any movement. The most recent update is from yesterday/today
|01/16/2019 - 12:34pm||Cornelius Johnson also moved…||
Cornelius Johnson also moved up significantly. He wasn't ranked nationally on Rivals before and was a 3 star for them and #69 WR. You can see that if you go to their position breakdown which doesn't update until tomorrow or Friday. This is a big jump for him.
|01/16/2019 - 12:38am||Guess it makes sense since…||
Guess it makes sense since Hurts may grad transfer there, play for one year (while Martell sits out), and then Martell can take over.
|01/15/2019 - 5:49pm||What a piece of human garbage||
What a piece of human garbage
|01/15/2019 - 5:48pm||Magnus did say depending on…||
Magnus did say depending on your definition of success. Smith was a good back. But he didn't take over the game even in the way that Higdon did last year. And 750 yards is pretty good. But we make a big deal about getting a 1000 yard season for a reason.
|01/15/2019 - 4:28pm||Lots of instate offers going…||
Lots of instate offers going out today I guess. I really want a Kobe on Michigan's team.
|01/15/2019 - 4:27pm||I think he can definitely a…||
I think he can definitely a good running book at Michigan. He doesn't have breakaway speed but with all the shifty guys we've been recruiting, it'd be good to get some big decisive runners in between the tackles too. Charbonnet is obviously a big back as well but he seems to also possess breakaway speed.
|01/14/2019 - 1:59pm||Getting Campanile helps a…||
Getting Campanile helps a lot. But PSU has made major headway into that state and is the biggest Power 5 school that's close to the state. Even OSU has gotten their fair share in the last couple years, though I'm not sure if that is due to Schiano or not. I think PSU will be the team to beat in NJ, with some elite level talent looking at Clemson, Bama, OSU as well. ND also has a decent number of recruits to come from NJ.
|01/14/2019 - 1:57pm||NJ tends to have more elite…||
NJ tends to have more elite level talent (at least 247 rating wise), but Michigan has more 4 stars in general.
|01/12/2019 - 8:59pm||How is he compared to Trey…||
How is he compared to Trey Leroux? He’s another 6’8 tackle from Ohio that has visited Michigan a couple times and he has a couple power 5 offers from Kentucky, Purdue, and West Virginia
|01/11/2019 - 10:47pm||I think so. I believe his…||
I think so. I believe his kids attend St. Francis
