Way too early and baseless prediction to laugh at in Feb. 2010:

Tennessee has the top class with Miami finishing second and the South Florida homers (like me) will complain way too loud that we really had the best class since we all know South Florida talent is the best.

VT is gonna ball.

Nick Acree, Mark Shuman, and Zack McCray are all near locks and should all be top 100 players. Top 250 at minimum.

There are others, but it is too early to count my eggs.

We have a shot at Phillip Sims. Not a great one, but that could change if our offense shows signs of life this season.

We are going to dominate Virginia and Virginia recruiting like always, but this year could be special recruiting wise (and on the field, of course).

Scripps Ranch HS RB Brennan Clay is one of my favorites in 2010. He's the best all purpose back in San Diego since Reggie Bush. I'm thinking he follows his teammate Tate Forcier out to Michigan but USC will be in the mix as well

Yeah, he seems to really like Michigan. It's way early though. Right now he's listed as having high interest in Oregon and USC according to his Scout profile, so who knows.

I was thinking this was going to be opened at 12:01 tonight but oh well.
-Love JJ and Ricardo to start the class.
-Need a dominant LB though.
-Lo Wood should drop very soon (whenever he visits).
-If we can get Marvin Robinson up here ASAP the same might happen with him as well, although I could see a Will Campbell-like recruitment with him.
-Brennan Clay and Nick Hill are 2 RBs I could definitely see as future Wolverines.
-Robert Crisp is THE OT I wnat for this class. Also wouldn't mind seeing James Hurst get an offer.
-Derrick Bryant as an early commit would help. So would Will Gholston waiting a while to decide.
-Need a good QB in this class as well. Gardner is my ideal pick but wouldn't mind a Malik Stokes/Stephen Morris combo.
-Dior Mathis should be fun to follow. Kid is REAL close with the Cass Tech kids. Might be a real good sign for us.

I'm going to try and not get too excited and keep things in perspective this year. With very few prospects committed, everyone seems to have pretty big lists. At this time last year, I admit I got caught up in thinking U-M had a much better chance some guys that were just interested in us. Just last February I felt that Michigan had a great chance to land guys like Russell Shepard, Dorian Bell, Craig Loston, Nu'Keese Richardson, and Chris Norman. We didn't end up getting a single one of those guys.

With that said, here is a more "conservative" guess at who we'll pull in for 2010:

Robert Bolden, QB, Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary's
Austin White, RB, Livonia (MI) Stevenson
Ricardo Miller, WR, Orlando (FL) Dr. Phillips
Jeremy Jackson, WR, Ann Arbor (MI) Huron
Derrick Bryant, DE, Columbus (OH) Brookhaven
Daniel Easterly, LB, Detroit (MI) Cass Tech
Austin Gray, LB, Warren (MI) Fitzgerald
Lo Wood, CB, Apopka (FL) Apopka
Marvin Robinson, S, Eagle Lake (FL) Lake Region

Other guys we will be in the mix for:

Devin Gardner, QB, Inkster (MI) Inkster
Stephen Morris, QB, Miami (FL) Monsignor Pace
Malik Stokes, QB, Philadelphia (PA) Northeast
Brennan Clay, RB, San Diego (CA) Scripps Ranch
Kenny Shaw, WR, Orlando (FL) Dr. Phillips
William Gholston, DE, Detroit (MI) Southeastern
Cullen Christian, CB, Pittsburgh (PA) Penn Hills
Dior Mathis, CB, Detroit (MI) Cass Tech

Acree supposedly is going to start out at four stars.

For my money though, he would destroy any offensive lineman in the country if he wanted to. He's done it at every camp he has been too. So physically gifted.

Talk like this will be common over the next year. It will only increase as he hits the college ranks and then gos number one overall in the National Football League Draft.

Like I've said before, for somebody so big and muscular, he doesn't seem that strong, either that or he plays with poor leverage. He looks better at DE to me, but that's just my opinion.

He is a Jeffery Demps type RB and (rightfully so wants to play RB at UF). We have already told him that if we offer, it will be as a WR and he was none to happy about that.

And that's my point, you act like he's not gonna face better talent once in college. He will be coached up when he's at VT, but i dont think he has alot of upside and his body looks maxed. If leverage is his problem, like I said he'll probably be a better DE than a DT. I'm not trying to knock him at all, I just dont feel like he's the best DT prospect right now.

We could not even leave the city during recruiting next year and still pull a top 10 class.

Watching Acree in one on ones where DL is supposed to dominate, he only shows a swim move. His strength is non-existent when battling guys. Maurice Goodman just moved his big body to the side with ease. Also, Russell Bodine stoned him twice with the 3rd a draw. For a kid that can bench and squat the world, his strength is a non factor in his game. Decent prospect but has a long ways to go before anybody annoints him the next great thing.

Shariff Floyd is much more complete.

Co-sign.

Exactly how I feel about him.

Nix and Ferguson are likely better.

And if not for the injury, Chandler would be the best in this class. He outplayed Marcus Forston when Forston was a SR and Chandler was a JR.

Seriously doubt Acree is capable of that.

Conversation over.

6'5" 290 pound highschool DTs who run 5.1s (profile says 4.9), bench 425, and squat 575 have upside. I'm amazed you said such a thing. He has all the potential in the world. When you pull verbals from schools across the country by the end of your sophmore year/ beginning of your junior year, you have upside.

I'm sure if he was at SC he would have upside. And he'd be a top 5 player in the class to boot.

No, that's called being maxed out. He will barely get bigger or stronger from this point on, and he's showed that he had trouble with leverage. He got past his opponents easily though (using hand moves, his length and speed) and he just seems like he'd be a better fit at DE (IMHO) where he wouldn't have leverage problems and his height would be a bonus (instead of a possible problem). I'm not knocking you, him or VT. I personally think VT is one of the best (top 3) programs that work with the talent they get, and the best special teams unit in the country year in and year out. I think that Acree is a great prospect, but I feel his body and skill set matches a DE better...no need to get testy.

I'll disagree. Players he has been compared to (John Henderson I've heard from more than one person) are of similar height and rely greatly on their physical strength and hands. The thing is, Acree does not have to get much stronger. If he gos up just 50 pounds on his bench from now to the time he exits college (that would put him close to 500), he would still be one of the strongest players in the nation.

Not to mention our strength and conditioning coach is very, very good.

He's mean. He has a passion to dominate. He just hasn't had the coaching.

That won't be a problem with Coach Wiles, one of the best in the nation. Once we get Acree some leverage and pad level he will be unstoppable.

Coach Wiles and Coach Foster have been given steel off the furnace. He already has the skills to dominate. We just have to teach him how.

Seantrel Henderson will be Rivals.com's #1 prospect, he was Junior of the Year aka early #1.

The kid is probably the best offensive line prospect since Andre Smith.

Bingo, Rivals is already pimping him.

Well yea, he's like the number 1 QB next year.

Luckily we have a good relationship with his "advisor".

Too bad the guy is a POS. Hopefully we can make that last for 1 more year so we can land Bell.

I don't see it with Blake Bell. Nice size, sure, but what else? Does not have a rocket arm, his 'wind up' is longer than Sandy Koufax, mechanics are not good, doesn't even seem to have great accuracy. Who knows though? He is a 2-3 years project where ever he goes, which I guess in our case would be what we are looking at it, but we already have that role in Taylor Cook.

Anyways, I think Blake will go to Oklahoma anyways if they want him. And if Butler really is his adviser, get ready for some fun Sooners!

William Gholston, DE, Detroit (MI) Southeastern

This is the guy Im really hoping Michigan can land. Beasts from Detroit named William are good to recruit haha.

Ever since Gholston talked to Robinson at a bball game and learned that we were recruiting him to play LB in our scheme, he has been higher on Michigan. What a monster of a LB he would be, already 6'7 240 at 17.

Hes got a small list hes working on, to: Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon, Illinois, Florida, Miami, Florida State, Alabama, Texas, LSU, USC, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Purdue, Iowa – mostly all the Big Ten schools – Clemson.

No, that's called being maxed out. He will barely get bigger or stronger from this point on, and he's showed that he had trouble with leverage. He got past his opponents easily though (using hand moves, his length and speed) and he just seems like he'd be a better fit at DE (IMHO) where he wouldn't have leverage problems and his height would be a bonus (instead of a possible problem). I'm not knocking you, him or VT. I personally think VT is one of the best (top 3) programs that work with the talent they get, and the best special teams unit in the country year in and year out. I think that Acree is a great prospect, but I feel his body and skill set matches a DE better...no need to get testy.

He was 320 during the high school season, but his workout sessions with Mel Gray before SA took him down to 290. He has a ton of room to work on his technique as he can just toss kids at the high school level (single A). I am interested to see how he progresses as he has the physical tools and seems to have the work ethic needed to succeed. He isn't close to a finished product which is appealing and should lead to a fun 4 years.

One thing I like about Michigan's future at LB, even though we only have 1 recruit in this class considered a LB, we have multiple who may end up playing LB. We have a good 3 prospects with potential to be fast, athletic LB's. Mike Jones, Isiah Bell, & even the Gordons both Cameron and Thomas all have the potential to grow into and play LB.

I don't think Thomas Gordon can. His frame doesn't seem like it could handle 230-240 pounds. He'll make a nice FS.

I agree his frame cant handle that much weight. But a lot of LB's at the college level do play in the 220's. I mean look at Hawthorne, there is absolutely no way he is going to get to 230 yet he is considered a pure LB; even though he is smaller than Gordon and has similar speed.

You're right that I doubt T Gordon moves to LB, but it is possible. As far as C Gordon goes, I know he really really wants to play WR. But now that he is at Michigan I don't think it will take our coaches that long to move him to the defensive side of the ball where his potential is the greatest.

PA, MD, and NJ are going to be good to Penn State this year. We will grab one or two kids from Ohio like we always do, but the three I mentioned will probably do us the most good. I hope we can land MD players Ego Ferguson and Nick Forbes. Both could end up to be high 4 stars and Ferguson could end up being a 5 star.

I'm liking that ND is already out to a fast start. We already had Christian Lombard and Daniel Smith on board, and yesterday Chris Martin verballed. Chance Carter is supposed to be making his decision after his trip to Stanford, and ND is out in the lead for him too. And the smoke about grabbing Corey Cooper is nice.

There's a lot more needed to fill out the 2010 ND class, but at this point, the only other two recruits I can see ND having an advantage are Anthony Barr and Tai-ler Jones due to family ties to ND. Jones reportedly was in tears when he got his offer on campus at the last Junior Day and almost committed on the spot, but held off. Barr has had ND pushed at him probably since birth by his dad and uncle and ND seems to be leading for him.

The must get for Weis this year is Seantrel Henderson, but this will be a fight with half the country. I'm a bit more confident about ND's chances with Henderson than usual. Weis had been all over this kid for quite some time, and he has high interest in ND. But it's a long time until the next signing day.

Scott McVey-LB
Darryl Baldwin-DE
Matt James-OT
Spencer Ware-RB
Erick Howard-RB (if he busts his butt to pass admissions standards)
Alex Smith-TE

most of those guys will be at least 4 stars, probably mid-high 4 stars. There's also chances at these guys:

Willilam Gholston-DE
Ken Wilkins-DE
Corey Brown-RB
Derrick Bryant-DE (not sure we'll offer)
and then there's Jordan Hicks-LB, who is gonna go to Texas and is a total stud I hate to see leave the state.


and then of course in 2011 QB Braxton Miller is gonna be the best QB prospect from Ohio in years - better prospect than Justin Zwick and Brady Quinn were.

Michael Vick is one of them. We will never see a guy with that combo of talent at QB again, IMO*. Barry Sanders is another. His running style was so unique and amazing no one will compare to that again.

We don't throw out offers like other schools do. That's why we consistently clean up the state. The local kids have been conditioned to think that an offer from Texas is "worth" more than an offer from someone else.

for wvu's junior day, it's gonna be a lot smaller than rod's were; doc and stew feel it's better to bring in less players and spend more time with them individually, than bring in a lot and spend less time

coaches already have film on 400 prospects and are starting to rank their board; they figure out how many of each position they want, then divide into 3 tiers (tier 1, 2, 3); then rank within those tiers; once all tier 1 players committ somewhere, they start offering tier 2, and so on

You guys need to step your game up. I've had a solid list of 2010 options for a week already. ;)

For easy targets I would add OL Jon Ragoo, CB Ravonne Carter,CB Richard Leonnard, and RB Hosey Williams. What do u guys think our chances are with Joyner?

Dior Mathis and Alec Olgtree are heavy Miami leans. Also I heard 3 St. Thomas players are about to commit. Any 1 think we can get sum early.

WR Keiwone Malone is a Mia lean, but I dont think we offered yet.

Mathis and Olgetree are not Miami leans.

Mathis is seen as a backup plan from what I can gather and he's more likely to stay with his teammates at Michigan then to come down to Miami.

Olgetree I've seen linked heavily with UGA.

Hosey Williams isn't gonna get an offer from us and is very low on the list of RBs we are after. No sense in even putting him on the list.

3 St. Thomas players about to commit? The only 3 we are after are Linder, Bernard and Riggs. Considering Riggs and Bernard don't have offers, would be pretty hard for them to commit. Riggs is still being evaluated and Bernard is a backup plan.

Richard Leonard could be added as a potential target for us I suppose.

I've never heard Ragoo or Carter linked to us in any way shape or form and right now are not BCS caliber players.

Lo Wood had a real good showing at the Under Armour camp and ran well for what was projected. I think he is a solid 4 star. On the Rivals 250 to watch for 2010. I think his recruitment ends before the summer. Possibly in March. Michigan feels VERY confident in him. And for a VERY good reason.

I'm not as high on Juju as others, I'd rather not rely on him as our starting quarterback unless he beats out competition. He may surprise me.

Exum is a beast. What an athlete. Maybe he can stick at quarterback. If not, we will find a spot for him somewhere. I'd like him at safety if QB is a no go.

That doesn't mean he's not leaning towards Illinois, which he is. We were his first major offer, he camped with us last year, we were the first major school in on him. Prater right now is an Illinois lean, nowhere did I say he would commit to us down the road for sure.

We are Kyle's early leader, not that it matters at this point because there is still a year to go until signing day but we lead for him at this point.

Richard Leonard could be added as a potential target for us I suppose.

I've never heard Ragoo or Carter linked to us in any way shape or form and right now are not BCS caliber players.


Ragoo, one of the top offensive linemen in the Class of 2010 and a huge one at that already measuring 6-foot-7 and 310 pounds, was walking around the Boyd Anderson gym during Pace’s basketball game against Boyd Anderson with a University of Miami sweatshirt on.

“It’s just a Christmas present from my mom. She was just saying that she likes the UM. We went the game and they treated her right so she just wanted me to put it on and see how it feels. I like it a lot,” Ragoo said.

Ragoo has received offers from UM and LSU, but his mom is clearly a proponent of Miami.

“She likes UM, but she wants me to think about my academics and the atmosphere of the school, but UM has all of the things that I want to do in school and it’s a school that I am really looking into,” Ragoo said.

Ragoo said that he grew up a Miami fan and later on became a Miami/Florida fan because his cousin played at Florida while he was growing up, but his loyalty seems to reside more with the ‘Canes.

“I grew up a UM fan, then later a UM fan slash UF fan cause my cousin played for UF, Teako Brown. He used to play strong safety,” Ragoo. insidetheu.com



Ravonne Carter said he grew up a fan of the University of Miami.

"I want to be there," Carter said. "I like Miami. I like the atmosphere, the players, and the speed. I just want to be a part of it. I want to win a championship at the University of Miami, get drafted, the whole thing."

Carter is also a track standout in the 300 meter hurdles (51.95), 400 meter hurdles (57.38), and the long jump (14-3). insidetheu.com

It’s just that Miami was my team [growing up],” Ogletree said. “It was always my dream when I was younger to play for Miami, so it’s kind of hard believing that I finally got offered by them. It’s like my dream came true.”

The St. Thomas players, I just seen that 3 are close to commiting. I'l put up a link when I find it.

2010 Miami Killian cornerback Richard Leonard has established himself as one of the top cornerback prospects in South Florida this season.

Leonard has been so impressive this season, that he expects an offer soon from UM and that offer may come Sunday after he visits their practice.

“UM is about to offer me,” Leonard said. “They are telling me to come to the practice Sunday so I can see how they look. I have talked to Coach McGriff and he likes how I cover guys. I went to their camp and he saw me play there.” insidetheu.com

Proviso East vs. Proviso West (not sure if they play each other, I'm assuming they do) would be a great game to go see... Corey Cooper vs. Kyle Prater. Good matchup.

I loved his highlight film, but I do not think he will be fast enough to play WR in college. Maybe he does get faster, but he just screams tight end to me for some reason. I wouldn't mind him on Penn State though.

He's not going to USC, I dont even think he listed USC in his top ten. Ore st, UCLA, CAL, and UW where his Pac-10 schools I believe. He really likes ND,BYU, and LSU.

Ragoo, one of the top offensive linemen in the Class of 2010 and a huge one at that already measuring 6-foot-7 and 310 pounds, was walking around the Boyd Anderson gym during Pace’s basketball game against Boyd Anderson with a University of Miami sweatshirt on.

“It’s just a Christmas present from my mom. She was just saying that she likes the UM. We went the game and they treated her right so she just wanted me to put it on and see how it feels. I like it a lot,” Ragoo said.

Ragoo has received offers from UM and LSU, but his mom is clearly a proponent of Miami.

“She likes UM, but she wants me to think about my academics and the atmosphere of the school, but UM has all of the things that I want to do in school and it’s a school that I am really looking into,” Ragoo said.

Ragoo said that he grew up a Miami fan and later on became a Miami/Florida fan because his cousin played at Florida while he was growing up, but his loyalty seems to reside more with the ‘Canes.

“I grew up a UM fan, then later a UM fan slash UF fan cause my cousin played for UF, Teako Brown. He used to play strong safety,” Ragoo. insidetheu.com



Ravonne Carter said he grew up a fan of the University of Miami.

"I want to be there," Carter said. "I like Miami. I like the atmosphere, the players, and the speed. I just want to be a part of it. I want to win a championship at the University of Miami, get drafted, the whole thing."

Carter is also a track standout in the 300 meter hurdles (51.95), 400 meter hurdles (57.38), and the long jump (14-3). insidetheu.com

- Regarding Ragoo and Carter: Kids say this all the time. I'm telling you, no one around Miami has heard anything about these kids.Did you not read the article yesterday about kids going around saying they were offered by Miami to get their name out there but in reality they were never offered? Neither of these kids are top targets right now. Like I said, they don't look like BCS prospects.

-Regarding Olgetree: He was a fan of Miami big deal. Would you like me to name the amount of kids that are Miami fans but didn't sign here? He is NOT a Miami lean. I bet I could dig up him saying similar quotes about just about every team that offered him.

- Regarding Mathis: He was offered but he is being looked at by the coaches as a backup plan. We have bigger targets (i.e. Joyner and Marshall) on the board 1st. The article you posted on Mathis is extremely old and he never committed and doesn't have a commitable offer. He is extremely likely to end up at Michigan with his teammates.

-Regarding Leonard from Killian: Should have been on the board. Hes a target and should be an easy get because of his school and his friendship with Lamar Miller.

- Regarding the 3 STA kids close to committing. Not gonna happen right now. Dior Mathis was gonna commit on Sept 1st remember? We don't have 3 STA kids locked up. We have maybe 1. We could get all 3 prospects but it aint happening soon. We would need alot of chips to fall (not all good) in order to land all 3.

Odds just swung in our favor. Hes transferring to Columbus with Jahkari Gore.

He says he wants to leave home and if not for that he'd have already committed to us.

Calvin Smith is a prett decent prospect. Should end up being a solid 4 star guy.

I know we are not gonna have a problem landing his teammate Lemonier. Smith wants to come here 2 but you guys are strongly in the mix as well because of Luiget.

Good news for you guys is we already have 2 of the top 5 DTs in the nation committed and weve heard good things about DT/OT Tavadis Glenn and we are in on DT Ego Ferguson as well.

If for some reason we miss on Glenn and Ego or Nix decommits (non of that seems likely ATM but still a ways to go) then we will focus on Smith, but right now hes getting talk as a backup plan and we are on him to help with Lemonier as well but its not looking like we will really need/want Smith in this class which will leave him yours for the taking.

Rite now Im expecting Smith to land with u but things could change from our side down the road.

Brandon Brown, LB
Another Corona Centenial player and after having 6 of them on the roster, I can only hope we get another stud LB.

Marquis Flowers, S
He has amazing combine numbers and also performs well. He will most likely be the #1 prospect in AZ and one of his good friends is on ASU's team already. IMO, this is a must get to make this a quality class.

Nick Rowland, OG
Most likely the #2 AZ recruit, he took a few unofficial visits to Arizona last year, but was really excited when we offered him. Rowland will end up being a huge recruiting battle between Arizona and ASU.

I got into sports as a little kid because I'm basically the youngest kid of all my family and I wanted to watch what my family was watching and root for who they rooted for. It conveniently happened that my first baseball game I watched was with my family from Massachusetts (the rest of my immediate family are Yankees fans besides me and that group lol), first football game was with my family in Maryland, and my dad went to Florida so he sort of made me a Gator fan. Plus I've moved around a bunch (3 times), so I never really had a home town team.

Heard of him just in passing.

He really isn't a great fit for us. Really wierd size combo for our scheme. I'm almost inclined to say he has to put on alot of weight an be a DT.

He'll be too wide and slow for MLB and he's too short and slow for DE.

He most his hips real well and can shed blocks and his instincts are solid. But I don't know if he will fit what we are trying to do and he certainly isn't explosive nor hes he have top notch speed.

I really think he could be a long term project DT but I haven't seen him enough to know if his frame is big enough to hold the weight.

We'll see. I haven't heard of him being high on the Miami board at all.

See to me that is what makes the perfect MIKE. You don't have to have top notch speed, you just have to be able to take on the guards and center and be able to shed blocks. To play in Shannon's system you also have to be extremely smart of course.

You're right in that he does have an odd height/weight combo so we'll see. Can't wait to see what he does in the off season camps.

Speed is a must with what he ran. Yes I agree MLB need some of the sbove but with what Randy runs you need speed as well.

Look at Vilma, Morgan, Beason, Gooden.

All super fast.

Then you got a slow one like Cook and look bad he was. He didn't have a good year until BY got here and implemented a different defense that does emphasize speed as much.

Well I don't think we have an accurate 40 time on Luc though. He could be one of those guys that drops 5 pounds and goes out and runs a 4.5. Could also really be a 4.8 guy like his time is reported as right now, I just don't buy it.

Like I said though, definitely an interesting guy to watch and see what he does in the offseason at the camps.

Judging by how slow he looked in his tape. I'd say its accurate.

You do realize ND has destroyed Alabama almost every time they played. I think ND has a 7-1 record against Alabama including a win in the the 66 NC game.

Oh my god they beat the in the 1966 title game ?!?!? NOOOOOO ! :eek:
