Recruiting Update (7/26/12)

Here are the headliners that are expected to be in Ann Arbor sometime this coming week and a few of my thoughts on some of them. Many of the current 2013 commits will be in attendance, but Shane Morris and Laquon Treadwell will not be due to the Gridiron King’s Tourney. This list will probably change so keep checking back.

BBQ Visitors

Devon Allen (2013-WR-AZ) – One of the fastest prospects in the country is finally making it up to Michigan after a long track season. ChDevon Allenances with Allen seem pretty low right now, mainly because of his desire to play football and run track at the school of his choice. Michigan does have a decent track program B1G wise, but it is a national track power. I’m sure that he’ll enjoy his visit to AA, but I’d expect schools like Arkansas, Texas, Oregon and LSU to have a better shot at Devon.

Derrick Green (2013-RB-VA) – The very talented Green has been on a Southern road trip recently visiting the likes of Auburn and Ole Miss, and also has visits to Ohio State and Michigan coming up this week. Derrick visited earlier this past spring, but was unable to talk to Coach Hoke so it will be crucial for he and his family to be able to bond with Brady. Green recently released a top 13 schools of Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Oregon, Pittsburgh, Tennessee and Virginia Tech. He has recently added Georgia to that list after the Bulldogs offered. I have a better feeling about Green than most and Michigan has a great opportunity here. I expect the Wolverines to make a decent leap up Derrick’s board. OSU is now out of the race.

Michael Ferns (2014-LB-OH-UM Offer) – This will be second visit to AA for Ferns, but first with his entire family. Ferns came out with a top 3 of Michigan, Notre Dame and Penn State, but one would have to imagine that PSU is now out of the race for is services. I really get the feeling that Michigan is in great position to land Ferns. Commit watch??
