Recruiting Update

Things are winding down for the 2012 recruiting class. With only a few days left until national signing day, here is were Michigan sBrady Hoketands with it’s handful of remaining recruits (in no particular order).

1. Josh Garnett – Officially down to Michigan, Notre Dame and Stanford, but the consensus is that Michigan and Stanford are his final two. Most insiders have had Garnett penciled to Stanford for quite a while, but the Wolverines have made a big, big push in the past few months. Coach Hoke was in-home with Garnett this past Sunday and Josh plans a 3PM PST decision at his high school on Thursday. Michigan’s Chances? 51% 

2. Jordan Diamond – Down to Arkansas, Auburn, Michigan and Wisconsin. Seemed to fall off the radar after spring, but things have picked up quite a bit over the past few months. Visited Michigan numerous times over the past year, including his January official. He seemed enamored on each of his visits, but stuck to his plan of taking his decision all the way down to the wire. Michigan’s in-home is on Tuesday. Jordan plans a post LOI Day decision at his high school on 2/3/12. Michigan’s Chances? 60%

3. Armani Reeves – Down to Michigan and Ohio. Like Diamond, Reeves fell off the UM radar earlier in the year after Anthony Standifer and Terry Richardson both committed. Things heated up again after the decommittment of Standifer and the Penn State scandal. Will Reeves follow his good friend Cam Williams to Ohio? Or will his great relationship with the Michigan coaching staff take him to A2? Coach Hoke had his in-home on Sunday and Greg Mattison is there tonight. He’ll decide sometime soon after the in-homes. Michigan’s chances? 51%

4. Sam Grant – Down to Arkansas, Michigan and Oklahoma. After Pharaoh Brown decided to take a trip to Oregon, Michigan wasted little time in getting back in with Grant. He’s visited Michigan a couple times since, and the Maize and Blue are looking good here. Sam is also teammates and great friends with Kyle Kalis. Michigan’s in-home coming up later this week, with a decision shortly after. Michigan’s Chances? 95%

5. Alex Kozan – Down to Auburn, Iowa and Michigan. Michigan got in a little late in the game, but that did not seem to matter. Visited AA in December and has a Michigan in-home this Friday and he is deciding on Sunday. Michigan’s Chances? 50%

  1. I’m not nearly as confident as you are about Kozan, the rest of the predictions I agree with you on.

    1. Thanks for the response Mike Joooooones.

      First, so much for the Garnett pick. I think that distance did in fact have some sort of an effect on Garnett’s choice. I know that Kozan might be leaning towards Iowa, but I’m still somewhat confident that Hoke can lure him away with tonight’s in-home. Usually at this point in the game we have a good idea as to who will round out the class, this year is the exception. Reeves and Kozan are pretty much coin flips, Jordan Diamond is still a bit of a mystery, but most expect him to pick Michigan. Sam Grant seems like the only prospect that we have a good read on.
