Pick One To Commit @ The BBQ at the Big House

So far Brady Hoke, Greg Mattison and his staff have secured a consensus Top 5 2012 Class and will be looking to build on it with the 2013 class. Earlier this week I asked everyone over Twitter and in the forum to pick one player they wish would commit this weekend during the BBQ at the Big House to help close out next year’s class or add to Shane Morris and the ‘13 class. Here are the results from the 58 replies I received:

Year Player Votes Percent
2012 DT Ondre Pipkins 16 28%
2012 HB Bri’onte Dunn 14 24%
2012 DE Chris Wormley 12 21%
2012 DT Dan O’Brien 11 19%
2012 DT Sheldon Day 2 3%
2013 OL Steve Elmer 2 3%

The Blueprint To Filling Out The 2012 Class

With 18 commits for the 2012 class so far and the final number more than likely 26, numbers are starting to become very, very tight. Here is my Gunner Kiel - SI.comlist of kids that we are still recruiting to fill out the class.

Quarterbacks (Wanting 1?)

With Maty Mauk giving his pledge to Missouri, Michigan is down to two offered quarterbacks who are showing interest.

1. Gunner Kiel. Most have him down to Alabama, Indiana (yes I said Indiana), and Oklahoma. Rumors of a second visit have not yet come to fruition. Not looking very good here.

2. Devin Fuller. Devin is a very explosive athlete who wants a chance to play quarterback in college. Michigan is recruiting him as an athlete, but would get a shot as a signal caller.

Running Backs/Fullbacks (Wanting 1 of each?)

With no running back standing out in the current roster the Wolverines do need a back that will be able to carry the rock around 25 times a game. And that back does need a true fullback leading the way. I’m not a huge fan of giving a fullback a scholly unless he is a very, very good one. And unless we can snag Bri’onte Dunn or Greg Garmon, I’m all for passing on a running back this class in favor of an extra DL, WR or OL.

1. Bri’onte Dunn. The long time Buckeye verbal continues to reiterate his commitment to them. Unless OSU receives MAJOR (USC like) sanctions no one should hold their breath here. Until those penalties are handed down Dunn will remain “open” and make some additional visits. He will be back to AA for the Notre Dame game.

2. Greg Garmon. A very explosive back who visited Michigan a few weeks back. Garmon keeps his recruitment rather tight and continues to name North Carolina his leader.

Michigan Football Recruiting Update (5/26/2011)

Just when I again thought that recruiting was going to slow down a little, Michigan of course picked up another commit, albeit a silent one. I’m 99.9% sure I know whGunner Kiel - CNNSI.como the kid is, but I’m sure the majority of you do as well.

Updates

Gunner Kiel told ESPN’s Corey Long on his commitment that: “It’s going to be a personal decision and one that I’m going to keep with myself and my family. Whenever I’m ready to make that decision, I’m going to tell my family, my coaches and my teammates before it gets to the public.” And that he appreciate(s) all of the schools that have shown interest in me.”

Tom Luginbill also dropped some analysis on 2013 Michigan Commit Shane Morris: “Morris was one of the more impressive prospects in attendance regardless of class and the left-hander really made some impressive throws with accuracy and confidence. He has good height and is going to continue to add inches and bulk to his late-bloomer’s frame. What stood out about Morris was the velocity and power and the manner in which he delivered the ball. Many lefties can really have a long, drawn out delivery that is more ¾ or sidearm, but not Morris. He had a quick stroke, was very accurate and threw as well on the run to both sides as any prospect on Friday. He is a definite Watch List candidate.”

DE Se’Von Pittman named his final five as Alabama, Auburn, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State.

DT Dan O’Brien told 247 Sports Steve Wiltfong that:  “I really like Coach D a lot. Coach (Mark) Dantonio really shows me he’s not here to pressure me and he’ll ride it out all the way until I’m ready to make my decision. He’s not the kind of guy that if I’m going to offer you, you have to commit now. He’s a real relaxed guy and a players’ coach.”
