Ideally, with 10 spots left, Michigan's finish would be:

1. OT Kyle Kalis
2. DE Chris Wormley
3. S Jarrod Wilson
4. OT Jordan Diamond
5. DT Ondre Pipkins
6. DT Danny O'Brien
7. DE Adolphus Washington
8. WR Dwayne Stanford
9. RB Bri'onte Dunn
10. WR Aaron Burbridge

Now obviously, reeling in all 10 of those guys isn't a realistic goal at this point, but sacrificing one of these players for a fullback or some 3* project QB would be a travesty.
It sounds more and more that they won`t take a QB unless it`s Kiel or Mauk. I don`t think the odds are very good at all with getting one of the two. The staff does however seem pretty set on taking a fullback in this class.

It will be interesting to see we end up with for the final 10 spots. It very well could be 8 after this weekend if Kalis and Wormley commit. It looks like Wormley will probably make it 9 this weekend. Wilson also may announce soon.

Yeah, yeah. He is a kicker, but the kid can boot it!

This class needs to be huge because the roster is pretty light at UF right now with only 73 scholarship athletes.

Oh, and Hoke isn't playing around on the recruiting trails!!
Any Michigan fan can tell you that kickers are very important. Man, these last couple years have sucked.

I'm sure Florida fans know this as well.

Well, today Bill Greene thinks Brionte is all in on OSU... thats surprising to me to say the least.

And supposedly Hoke is, according to Dave Biddle, 'Negatively recruiting the hell out of OSU', and telling guys "He's telling these guys that OSU will get hit harder than USC and they "shouldn't fall for the same (stuff) Lane Kiffen sold all those SC recruits."

Re: 2012 Recruiting Thread

What a reversal, after being shunned by PSU, 4* OT Chris Muller gives his verbal to Rutgers a couple days later.

This is the start of what can be a monster class, we already lead for Darius Hamilton, Carroo, and Shumate.

Ryan Brodie is also on campus tonight, and odds are he might give us a verbal as well. He is very high on RU which has cooled a lot of other schools on going after him, but to get both of them would bookend our OL for the next 3-5 years.

Not much of a surprise there. As a Michigan fan I would be upset if he wasn't talking to recruits about the OSU situation.
