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.”
