Michigan Recruiting Update (6/3/2011)

I will no longer predict a lull in recruiting as long as Brady Hoke is the coach of this team. Anthony Standifer made it up to AA on Wednesday for a visit and made a surprise commitment to the Wolverines. Standifer was a bit of a sleeper up until a few weeks ago when Michigan offered him. He’s a good sized kid at 6’1” and should be a nice compliment to Terry Richardson on the other side. Michigan legacy recruit Allen Gant also made his pledge to the Wolverines this week. Gant has been one of the top player in Ohio since his freshman year and will be a strong safety for the Wolverines. Michigan was actually expecting New Yorker Wayne Morgan to commit as well, but that never materialized. It seems that the two parties have gone their separate ways and both will look elsewhere.

Updates

Sam Webb wrote in the Detroit News a great piece about the effects of the firing of Jim Tressel will have on some Ohio recruits.

The Bleacher Report talks about the same thing.

Scout.com’s Allen Trieu gives his thoughts on recent Michigan commits Allen Gant and Anthony Standifer in his Midwest Recruiting Notebook.

TomVH of MGOBLOG reports that Cali DT Aziz Shittu has reopened his recruitment and Michigan might get a visit.

In older news, Adolphus Washington names his top 5. He and his teammate Dwayne Stanford would like to attend the same school and will be visiting Michigan sometime soon.

Georgia defensive end Jordan Jenkins recently said that he might visit Michigan. A week later he reports that he’ll stick closer to home ($ scout.com).
