Michigan Football Recruiting Update (5/19/2011)

Terry RichardsonRecruiting continues to stay hot for the Wolverines with the commit of Detroit, MI cornerback Terry Richardson. The Cass Tech Technician is the next in line of undersized, but very gifted corners to commit to Michigan. Richardson has very good hips and a nice back pedal. He’ll need a little bulking up, but has the skill set to be a good player. Terry picked Michigan over Alabama, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State and USC.

New Offers

Devan Bogard (S) – 6’1”  180 lbs. Cleveland, OH.

Drae Bowles (WR) – 6’1”  205 lbs. Jackson, TN.

Faith Ekakitie (DT/SDE) – 6’3”  275 lbs. Lake Forest, IL

Allen Gant (S) – 6’2”  205 lbs. Sylavania, OH. Legacy recruit.

Eli Harold (WDE) – 6’3”  220 lbs. Virginia Beach, VA.

Will Hines (CB/S) – 6’1”  175 lbs. Michigan will be a factor here.

The Michigan Quarterback Dilemma

With Zeke Pike committing to Auburn on Wednesday, what does Michigan do about the future of the quarterback position? I have to imagine that they want to sign a QB nearly every year and this year IMO is very critical that we do. So where do we go from here? Below are a list of potential candidates.

Most Likely Candidates

Austin Appleby – North Canton, OH – 6’5" 230. Good sized kid. There have been a few rumors that he’s been offered, but I have not been able to confirm this yet. He has decent mobility and a good arm. He did miss part of last season due to a knee injury, so there are some questions with his health. Offers: Akron, Kent State, Temple and Toledo.

Tyler O’Connor – Lima, OH – 6’3" 210. I actually like him more than Appleby. Throws very well on the run and can really spin the ball. WOTS is that interest has been gaining with him over the past week with the knowledge of Pike likely committing to Auburn. Offers: Indiana, Louisville, Michigan State, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, West Virginia and some MAC schools.
