Recruiting Update: January 14, 2013

Richmond (VA) Hermitage running back Derrick Green
Plymouth (IN) Plymouth offensive guard Dan Samuelson committed to Michigan.

Tyrone (GA) Sandy Creek wide receiver Demarre Kitt was offered by Michigan.  He's a 6'1", 195 lb. receiver who claims a 4.59 forty.  He also has offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Ohio State, and USC, among others.  As a junior in 2012, he had 74 receptions for 1,235 yards and 11 touchdowns.  He has pronounced Clemson and Ohio State to be his leaders.

Wyomissing (PA) Wyomissing Area linebacker Alex Anzalone changed his commitment from Notre Dame to Florida.  Anzalone used to be thought to be headed to Florida, but seemed satisfied with his Notre Dame commitment . . . until Fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly started flirting with the Philadelphia Eagles.  As soon as that happened, Anzalone booked it for the sunshine.  In case you don't remember, Anzalone was a guy who wanted to visit Michigan before the Wolverines filled up at the position and told him, "You can come to campus, but you don't have a spot unless something changes."

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech cornerback Damon Webb committed to Ohio State.  Michigan was one of his first offers, but Webb's eye wandered to the Buckeyes and LSU early in his recruitment.  There seemed to be some trepidation about him continuing the Cass Tech pipeline to Michigan, and that doubt appears to have been warranted.

Richmond (VA) Hermitage running back Derrick Green set his announcement for January 26th at 4:00 p.m.

A handful of recruits made official visits to Michigan this past weekend.

  1. I'm increasingly dispirited about our chances of beating OSU in the foreseeable future. We were never going to beat them in recruiting but hoped to at least keep pace. Losing an elite in-state player is a huge blow. No one recruit changes everything, but going from M's biggest feeder school...ouch.

    The list of M's few advantages is getting shorter.
