Recruiting Update: October 30, 2012

Lincoln (NE) Southwest defensive end Christian LaCouture decommitted from Nebraska.  The 6'5", 275 lb. end was previously committed to Texas A&M, and now he seems to be strongly considering LSU.  Michigan was in his top three prior to the Nebraska commitment, but the Wolverines no longer seem to be in the picture.  In his senior season, LaCouture had 101 tackles, 5 sacks, 5 forced fumbles, and 6 fumble recovers; he also had 12 carries for 109 yards on offense.  This is a particularly interesting decommitment because LaCouture moved from Texas to Lincoln, NE, prior to his senior year.

Pomfret (MD) McDonogh offensive tackle Na'Ty Rodgers was offered by Michigan.  The 6'5", 278-pounder has offers from Florida, Maryland, Oklahoma, South Carolina, USC, and Washington; the Terrapins and Gamecocks are considered to be his leaders, and it sounds like he won't give the Wolverines much of a look.  He was offered in response to David Dawson's decommitment from Michigan.

Check out the Recruit Tracker series for updates on how Michigan's commits are doing this season.


  1. Recruiting update with 2 kids in which "the Wolverines no longer seem to be in the picture" and "it sounds like he won't give the Wolverines much of a look".

    After the Nebraska game, I'm looking for positives and not getting any here. :).

    A suggestion on your 2013 Offer Board link it would be great to see the list of current commitments in its own section sorted with your personal numerical rankings. I find it very interesting to see the differences or consistency between Rivals, ESPN, 24/7, etc and would like to see your opinions as well. Thanks for the good work. Go Blue!

    1. Recruiting is pretty boring right now.

      I'm soon going to be linking my commitment posts on the 2013 offer boards, rather than the kids' highlights.
