Coming in at 6th on our Impact Redshirt Freshmen Countdown is Ricardo Miller. Miller committed to Michigan and moved here before his senior year of high school with offers in hand from the likes of Florida, LSU & Miami (FL). Coming from the powerful Orlando High School Dr. Phillips and being the best friend of 2011 Recruit Demetrius Hart immediately led to speculation that the two would be a package deal. Hart would indeed commit the following year, before changing his mind and opting for Alabama instead after Rich Rodriguez was fired. Scouts Inc. said of Miller in high school:

“..Miller lines up everywhere, plays with a nice feel for coverage and knows how to get open. His willingness and ability to come up with big plays over the middle of the field is one of his most impressive traits. What he might lack in great speed, he makes up for in overall talent. He possesses big, reliable, soft hands with very few body catches.. What really stands out is his ability to make plays on the jump ball, balls thrown in traffic and adjustments to poorly-thrown balls. Comes off the ball quickly and reaches top speed rapidly for a player of his size. He does lumber somewhat, but he runs with power and strength.. He catches everything, he breaks tackles, makes people miss and he is ultra competitive. Excellent prospect.”

Michigan picked up a commitment from Blake Countess, helping out the slim depth in the secondary. Michigan also reportedly leads forMatt Goudis Matthews, NC OLB Kris Frost. Both four star players help this class immediately, especially on the defensive side of the ball. The kicking game got a boost when kicker Matt Goudis flipped his commitment from Boise State to Michigan.

Michigan hopes to land Kris Frost and Anthony Zettel. The staff also hopes they can get Thomas Rawls who is close to qualifying. It has been reported that both Hakeem Flowers and Chris Bryant are heavy Michigan leans while they remain hopeful that at least one defensive tackle sings with them. Watch out for Farrell, PA DT Rob Trudo, who currently his committed to Syracuse. Another player to keep an eye on is Prince Holloway, a slot wide receiver from Cape Coral who is close to committing.
