Ex-Wolverine Updates

The guy in black was Jake Fisher in high school.
Former Michigan TE/DE commit Pharaoh Brown: Brown had 1 catch for 26 yards as Oregon beat Tennessee Tech by a score of 63-14.  He has 2 receptions for 42 yards on the season.

Former Michigan CB commit Demar Dorsey: Dorsey and former Michigan LB commit Antonio Kinard are both on Western Arizona Community College's football roster.  Dorsey was supposed to head to Hawaii and Kinard was supposed to be at Miami by now, but both have run into academic and/or legal issues.  Western Arizona CC is a repository of former high school talent, including former USC wide receiver Markeith Ambles and former South Carolina quarterback Tanner McEvoy.

Former Michigan OT commit Jake Fisher: Fisher jumped on a De'Anthony Thomas fumble in the end zone after Thomas caught a pass at Tennessee Tech's 49-yard line and almost scored himself.  It was Fisher's first career touchdown, which is probably an obvious statement.

Former Michigan RB commit Dee Hart: Hart had 4 runs for 21 yards as Alabama beat Arkansas by a score of 52-0.

Former Michigan S Carvin Johnson: Johnson had 5 tackles and 2 pass breakups, but Hampton lost to Florida A&M by a score of 44-20.

Former Michigan DT commit DeQuinta Jones: Jones had just 1 tackle as Alabama ran over Arkansas, 52-0.

Former Michigan RB Sam McGuffie: McGuffie did not have a good day on Saturday, as he had 1 rush for -5 yards, 1 catch for -3 yards, and 2 kickoff returns for 25 yards.  Rice lost to Louisiana Tech by a score of 56-37.

Former Michigan WR/CB commit Dewayne Peace: Peace had 10 receptions for 103 yards, but Houston lost to UCLA by a score of 37-6.

Former Michigan WR Je'Ron Stokes: Stokes had 1 reception for 12 yards, but Bowling Green State lost to Toledo by a score of 27-15.  By the way, Denard Robinson's former teammate Cassius McDowell plays for Toledo now; he had 8 carries for 40 yards and 4 receptions for 40 yards for the Rockets.

Former Michigan S Ray Vinopal: Vinopal had 1 tackle in Pitt's 35-17 upset of Virginia Tech.


  1. Demar Dorsey would have been real handy to have around about now.

    Books can be such an inconvenience when building a football team.

  2. That looks like in that picture that Fisher is thumping Matt Godin. Same color helmet and mat always had a black chinstrap.

  3. I can only imagine what our offense would look like if we had Brown and Funchess both on the field, matchup nightmare! Oregon has taken two really solid players from us. Would love to have Fisher at UM. Oh well though, it happens to everyone. Question: is Vinopal starting at Pitt? Thanks, always enjoy reading up on how these guys are doing.

  4. Hmmm...Lewan and Fisher both recover fumbles in the end zone to score TD's on the same day. Interesting coincidence and an incredibly unlikely one.

    I doubt that is Godin. First, Fisher is a few years older than Godin (at least 2). Second, that kid is a lot thinner than Godin. He looks like a linebacker.

  5. It will be interesting to see if Kinard and Dorsey wind up giving Arizona (and RichRod) a look.

    Peace is on pace for a monster statistical season.
