Recruiting Update: March 5, 2012

Josh Augusta looks angry

Peoria (IL) Peoria defensive lineman Josh Augusta was offered by Michigan.  He's a 6'5", 275 lb. kid who looks like he'll grow into a 3-tech defensive tackle.  He also has offers from Illinois and Iowa.  The highlights below (the only ones I could find of Augusta on Youtube) appear to show some clips of Michigan commit Logan Tuley-Tillman playing against Augusta:

New Orleans (LA) Edna Karr tight end Standish Dobard has an offer from Michigan.  He's a 6'5", 235 lb. end who lists a 4.6 forty.  He also has offers from Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, and Oklahoma, among others.  He attends the alma mater of former Michigan target (and current Cincinnati quarterback) Munchie Legaux.

College Station (TX) A&M Consolidated defensive end Christian Lacouture decommitted from Texas A&M.  The 6'5", 255-pounder had been committed to the Aggies since January 2011 and plans to visit Michigan soon.


St. Peters (MO) Fort Zumwalt South running back/athlete Chase Abbington committed to Missouri.  There is some uncertainty about whether he was ever offered by the Wolverines, but regardless, he's off the board.

Cypress (TX) Cypress Ranch running back Keith Ford committed to Oklahoma.  The powerful 5'11", 195-pounder expressed interest in visiting Michigan at one point, but Oklahoma's not a bad choice, either.

Castle Rock (CO) Valor Christian offensive lineman Alex Kozan committed to Auburn.  Kozan was a part of the 2012 class but decided not to sign with a team on (or even near) National Signing Day.  Iowa was apparently out of the picture at the end, and Kozan was deciding between the Tigers and the Wolverines.

Louisville (KY) Trinity cornerback Ryan White committed to Louisville.  White is one of three Trinity teammates to have been offered by Michigan for 2013, along with defensive end Jason Hatcher and wide receiver James Quick.

I released the TTB Ratings for 2013.  You can hit the link or they can be found on the 2013 Offer Board.


  1. Any updates you would make to your wishlist with all the offers that have gone out since you put it together with Temendous?

    1. No, not really. I liked most of the early offers better, I think.

  2. Why are we still recruiting tight ends when we have two from the last class and two more committed?

    1. The coaches supposedly want three tight ends in this class if they can get an elite one with #3. It doesn't seem like they're too sold on Ricardo Miller being able to contribute there, and Paskorz is just filler.

  3. Can u explain what exactly a 3 tech is?

    1. It's a defensive tackle position that typically plays on the weakside (away from the tight end) and on the guard's outside shoulder. He typically has B-gap responsibility (between the guard and tackle) and often has a one-on-one pass rush opportunity.
