247 Sports: Top 25 for 2014 released

Woodbridge (VA) Woodbridge defensive end Da'Shawn Hand
247 Sports jumped out to the forefront of 2014 recruiting by releasing its top 25 recruits for the class of 2014 on . . . May 3, 2012.  What is this, basketball recruiting?

Anyway, here are some notes on some of the top 25 guys:

1. Da'Shawn Hand - DE - Virginia: Hand already has a Michigan offer, but most expect him to be SEC-bound.

2. Andrew Brown - DT - Virginia: I've heard some not-so-flattering things about Brown's attitude, but he's a beast of a player.  He also seems to be SEC-bound.

3. Jabrill Peppers - CB - New Jersey: Peppers just got a Michigan offer in the last few days.

13. Damian Prince - OT - Maryland: Prince was offered by Michigan a couple months ago.  He will probably give Michigan a look, but I'm not too confident on most players from the East Coast.

17. Bentley Spain - OT - North Carolina: Spain was offered by Michigan a few weeks ago.  I'm kind of expecting him to go to South Carolina, though.

19. Dante Booker - LB - Ohio: Booker attends St. Vincent-St. Mary's in Akron, OH.  That's the same school that sent Doran Grant to Ohio State and Lebron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

20. Jalen Tabor - CB - Washington, D.C.: He has an offer from Michigan, but seems to be leaning toward Tennessee right now.

23. Malik McDowell - DE - Michigan: McDowell already has an offer from Michigan and could very well end up committing to the Wolverines at any point.

1 comment:

  1. Apparently Peppers said he got a Michigan offer, but his coach (per Rivals) said he did not.

    I also think that Hand is putting a little more stock into academics than some think. I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up in the ACC or B1G.
