2012 Recruiting Update

2012 Recruiting Board

The 2012 recruiting season has started off pretty slow commitment wise for the University of Michigan so far, but the coaches have been hard at work sending out verbal offers so far. By my count, Coach Hoke and Co. have given out 121 (give or take one or two) verbal offers as of today.

Recent Offers

– California Quarterback Zach Kline. The newly named Army All-American has already verballed to Cal. Not likely to go anywhere for UM.

– Rockford, MI offensive tackle Ben Braden.

– Very highly touted Apopka, FL offensive center/guard Ty Darlington.

– Texas offensive lineman Trey Keenan.

– Georgia defensive end Jordan Jenkins.

Halo List

Offensive tackle Taylor Decker – Notre Dame

– Offensive tackle Mike Madaras – Maryland

– Offensive Guard Dan Voltz – Wisconsin

– Defensive End  Mario Edwards – Florida State

A Chat with Dan Voltz

Michigan only inked  two offensive linemen in their 2011 recruiting class. Therefore, the coaches will be hitting that area very hard for 2012, possibly taking 5 kids. Illinois guard Dan Voltz is one of the Wolverine’s early targets and he recently answered a few questions about his recruitment for UMGoBlog.Rivals.com

Sean O’Connell: How many offers do you hold?

Dan Voltz: “I currently hold 16 offers. They are from Arizona, Boston College, Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Purdue, Stanford, Vanderbilt, West Virginia, Western Michigan, and Wisconsin.”

Sean O’Connell: What are your top three factors when looking at schools?

Dan Voltz: “Football tradition, academics, and campus.”

Sean O’Connell: Does location matter?

Dan Voltz: “Location does matter. I am a big midwest guy and would love to play football in the midwest. But if there is a school outside of the midwest that I like, I won’t hesitate to look at it.”

Sean O’Connell: Do you have a school you grew up cheering for?  If so will that factor into your decision?
