Maize 'n Brew: May 22 Recruiting Update

Hello, Kate Upton

Over yonder at Maize 'n' Brew, I put up a weekly recruiting update with news and notes on players won, lost, and in between.

  1. Wow she's gorgeous

  2. Good read and good photo.

    If, hypothetically, Wayne Morgan was to commit to Michigan that would mean we beat Alabama for two DB recruits. Is there anything to be read into this?

    Richardson had offers from all over the midwest, but also had USC, Oklahoma, LSU, etc. Guy was just wanted by nearly everyone. But Morgan's offer list wasn't quite as impressive. It was mostly ACC/Big East region schools going after him - Alabama and Michigan were kind of the standouts.

    So, two DBs where Michigan and Alabama arguably represent the greatest combination of interest and prestige for the oferee. Does that mean anything in terms of style of play? Are we looking for common player attributes as Saban?


  3. For some reason the comment box isn't loading on your post about a recruit rating system, so I'll post it here:

    How about breaking up a recruit's skill into categories (like ideal size, speed, instincts), assigning a number to each, then have a either a sum or an average of the numbers for an overall score?

  4. Interesting fact about Kate Upton.

    She was born at St. Joseph, Michigan but grew up in Florida. Whoo to her being born in Michigan?!

  5. I'm the one who has been badgering you for an Upton pic, and I have to say that you've done well.
