Michigan Football Recruiting Update (5/15/2011)

Mario OjemudiaIt was another very busy week recruiting wise for the Michigan football team. In under a week the Wolverines gained verbals from defensive ends Mario Ojemudia and Pharaoh Brown, as well as defensive end/tackle Matt Godin. Ojemudia was thought to be a Sparty lock for a long time. Up until he visited Michigan, he was. For his Farmington Hills squad Mario had 127 tackles and 12 sacks while playing many positions. Will the third of the FHHS trio drop for Michigan too? Time will tell, but UM has made a HUGE push for Aaron Burbridge. Pharaoh Brown is a kid that oozes potential and should be a prolific pass rusher. Matt Godin is a long time Michigan fan and has the ability to play outside and inside.

The biggest news of the week was probably the verbal pledge of 2013 stud quarterback Shane Morris. The Michigan native will be the #1 prospect in the state next season and more than likely a top 5 quarterback nationally. Morris is very, very polished for a sophomore in high school. You can expect Michigan to still take a quarterback this season, just don’t expect an elite one. Morris is a GREAT start to next season and should attract some top flight talent.

Will things start to slow a little? Probably. The off course there are a few guys out there like Chris Wormley, Aaron Burbridge, Terry Richardson, Ron Thompson and 2013er Wyatt Shallman. I can’t remember a time where Michigan recruiting was this exciting. Mad props to Hoke and crew!
