Recruiting Update 2-18-08

The board, which no longer has "debuts!" in its title.

PA DT Levi Brown. A 1-technique tackle prospect, and HS teammate of DE prospect Braxton Isaac.

WV QB Craig Crawford. He has stated he does not want to play QB in college. He has also heard from the West Virginia staff, but not Michigan at all.
TX QB Tyrik Rollison. No apparent mutual interest between Michigan and Rollison. He has claimed a list of 3: Oklahoma, Texas, and A&M.
MI TE Mitch Kessel. It doesn't appear he will become a D1 prospect.
MI OT Christian Brandt. He won't be a high-D1 prospect.

Additional Information:
MI RB Hersey Jackson now has a reported 40 time of 4.8. He'll be a fullback if he wants to play high-D1.
Russell Shepard has been named the #1 prospect in Texas (ahead of current Longhorns QB commit Garrett Gilbert). Craig Loston is #3. Not sure why this video from Rivals is free, but it is, so enjoy. Shepard talks about his favorites, his work in the community, and other interesting facts.
Dorian Bell reports a Michigan offer.
Craig Loston 5 stars (up from 4). He will probably be one of the top safeties in the nation next year. He hasn't mentioned Michigan much, but he has talked about attending the same school as his cousin Russell Shepard.
OH OL Chris Freeman from Trotwood Madison is the cousin of OSU LB Marcus Freeman.

    Look into QB Taj Boyd of Pheobus HS in Hampton Virginia.

    I believe A2 has genuine interest in him. Great arm with accuracy and terrific athlete. Big senior season will find plenty of suitors for his services.

    Boyd is on the board. I'd love him as the pass-run QB in the class.

    The only way Hersey Jackson runs a 4.8 is if he has a guy on his back. He is a solid 4.5 kid who runs the 100m in the 10.8 to 10.9 range.

  4. Blogger Tim Says:

    That's his best time from last year. I don't make the numbers, I just report them.

    Slight correcion to the board....

    It is spelled Phoebus High School!

    I would like to know were Hersey ran that because I was at every camp with him and I never saw it. Anytime you want to clock him your more than welcome.

  7. Anonymous Anonymous Says:

    If you still do not get it call Dick Tressel at Ohio State because he saw Hersey run a 4.5. If that still is'nt good enough contact Gene Skidman formally of Michigan because he saw Hersey run a 4.6 the same as Larry Capers at the Michigan camp last summer. You need to understand that you being miss informed can hurt this kid who is an outstanding individual. I do not know how to prove this to you other than you contacting these people. If not call Allendale High and ask for Hersey's track results. And further more it would be sad if you did not remove this false info.

    When I see an updated time from a source, rather than from an anonymous commenter, I'll update it. For now, that's the only info I have (from Michigan State Scout site, if you must know).

    Tim thank you for checking Hersey's 40 time out with Allen.
