1. Michigan Banner 18 Commits

Added Harper Woods wide out Csont’e York. York had a standout performance at the Nike combine in Columbus a few weeks ago and the Wolverines decided to offer shortly after. After sleeping on the offer, CSont’e verballed to UM the next day. York is a solid three star prospect.

2013 Recruiting: So What’s Next?

I love football recruiting. National Letter of Intent Day is one of my favorite days of the year, but it can be somewhat boring if your school isn’t in the running for many prospects. For Michigan, Commitmas Day came a little late, or a little early depending on how you look at it. I for one will never forget 2/18/2012. A day when my beloved Wolverines received verbal commitments from six four star prospects in a matter of 12ish hours.

For Michigan, Commitmas Day came a little late, or a little early depending on how you look at it. I for one will never forget 2/18/2012. A day when my beloved Wolverines received verbal commitments from six four star prospects in a matter of 12ish hours. Kyle Bosch (4 star OG/OT), Wyatt Shallman (4 star athlete), David Dawson (3/4 star OG/OC), Jourdan Lewis (3/4 star CB), Chris Fox (4 star OT) and Taco Charlton (4 star LB/DE) all pledged for UM on the same day that the Wolves beat OSU in hoops. Oh yeah, the next day Jake Butt (4 star TE) and Logan Tuley-Tillman (4 star OT) also dropped. Then there was a two day drought until the tall and lanky Jaron Dukes (probable 3 star) committed, followed by a lengthy 3 day hiatus when 4 star OL Patrick Kugler decided to sign up. Those nine verbals brought Michigan’s total commits for the 2013 class up to 13. With 9ish spots left where will the staff decide to go with the rest?

Quarterback  (DONE)

Commits: Shane Morris

Prospects: With 5 star Shane Morris already in the fold it will be pretty hard to lure in another quarterback anyways, so Michigan is likely done here. There have been rumbling of Riley Ferguson possibly visiting Michigan this spring, but the odds of him signing with the Maize and Blue are next to zero. Henry Poggi’s teammate Shane Cockerille could be a possibility, but there is some speculation of whether or not his offer is committable, if he even has one at all.

Eastern Michigan Post-Game Quote:

Ron English

“You have to score from the one-inch line. Can’t score from the half yard line, you’re going to have a hard time winning, so that hurt us. As the game went along, Denard [Robinson] made some plays in there, and I felt that it took some of our steam away to be honest with you. I thought we had a hard time with him today.” – Eastern Michigan Head Coach Ron English
