Detroit Cass Tech safety and #Iowa commit Delano Hill offered by #Michigan
Good news on the Reon Dawson front!

Wonder if the timing of this offer is in correlation with Dawson coming here this weekend instead of UM?

My Dawson post reminded me he could easily be 2nd team CB (instead of Cazely) across from Moseley. I consider Moseley a lock for a back up spot at CB with a shot at starting from day 1.

All commits it seems like and Mr. Smithburg. Huge to get him on board. One reason is well our OL is horrible. The other reason is that he plays next to Hinkhouse on Iowa Western's OL right now. So we can pair these 2 up next to each other right now and they can start 4 years together just like that. I think that is huge.

Dawson being here is big too. I went back and checked and I think this was the weekend he was supposed to be at Michigan. And the fact he is coming here is big even if he does end up visiting UM.
They would have 4 years together?

Of the 6 guys borderline 2 or 3 star players referred to in another post 2 are illinois kids. One in a position I would like another commit if at all possible.

Again on paper, it looks like an ok class.

The Juco guys are a big risk/big reward proposition
This recruiting class is comparable to Groce's first basketball class. There are some difference makers, and some athletes with a lot of potential but more than anything else this class fills our positional needs with guys that fit Beckman's program.

FWIW, Rivals ranks classes by both quantity and quality for a reason. The bigger the class, the harder it is to maintain a ranking average.

If there is one thing that makes this class special, it is that we will have 13 new recruits enrolling this January. It is very rare to have that many guys join the team mid-year and gives them a big jump on most recruits that enroll in the fall.

Well, he just burned New Mexico as well. He committed to New Mexico, then Illinois, then back to New Mexico since Sunday.

I would rather have Williams (who seems to want to be here) then a guy who cant make up his mind.
