    Is OSU not recruiting Damon Payne anymore? Or is he just following the Justin Rodgers/Devontae Dobbs script?

    Our OL class should be solid. At QB it will probably be Veilleux if we whiff on Williams (likely). Otherwise I got no idea. It’ll be a small-ish class with probably only 1-2 DT and 1-2 LBs

    I think this has a chance to be one of Harbaugh's better classes if he's willing to wait it out for some of the better guys. Who knows how this will affect things going forward, though. Getting kids on campus is huge for UM because it's pretty much the only thing it does at a high level compared to other schools in recruiting. Especially since program PR is a dumpster fire until it does better on the field.

    You're a lot more hopeful than I am, they were doing a miserable job getting kids to visit prior to corona.

    Besides Edwards, who else in the top 100 are you guys feeling good about?

    I think they were waiting for spring practices to start. They were doing small time "junior days" with in state shitty prospects for some reason in late Feb/early March. I'm guessing they were looking to get the better guys there in late March through mid-April with the spring practice. Now they're stuck.

    If a bunch of kids get restless during this delay and commit over the next 4-6 weeks, UM is going to be really hurting. Otherwise, I think they're in okay shape if they can close on the top in-state players (which is very up in the air at the moment).

    Guess it depends on what "feeling good" means.

    JJ McCarthy and Giovanni El-Hadi are committed. Others UM seems to be legitimately in the mix for would include:

    Edwards (top 3)
    Spindler (at least top 3)
    Dellinger (top 3ish)
    Somerville (probably top 3-4)
    Davidkov (likely lead)

    Seems like Spindler (if they can hold off ND/OSU) and Davidkov are most likely of that group.

    I dont feel good about a single uncommitted top 100 kid, even Edwards and spindler seem to be 50 50 at best with Georgia(assuming osu is now out) and Notre Dame respectively. I think you can largely tell how good a class is going by the number and amount of time you get to visit early in their recruitments. UM has had pathetic visit lists for the past year. I won't lie though I barely pay attention to football recruiting anymore because there is such a lack of activity by um.

    Never really understood why coaches do that. Seems like those kids always decommit anyway. Is the short term PR really worth that?

    Landon is a sharp kid. According to national pundits like Bruce Feldman, Stew Mandel and many other very smart people he’s the best coach in the Big Ten by a wide margin.

    Seems like we are gonna land Michigan S Jaylen Reed next month. Michigan guys, any reason you guys didn’t offer?

    also, we are targeting the King kid pretty heavily at CB. Not sure we are willing to take his shittier brother or not though.

    Michigan seems to want Kalen King, as well, and would likely take Kobe along with him. I'd prefer we didn't, but such is life.
