Who I'd like to see commit at Junior Day

With Mark Dantonio's early success in 2009 recruiting, it's important for Michigan to nab a couple of high-profile prospects from the state to slow down the momentum. Candidates for this I think would be:

Dion Sims TE/DE **** Orchard Lake St. Mary's (offer)
James Jackson WR **** Grand Blanc (offer)
Hersey Jackson RB/MX *** Allendale (no offer)
Teric Jones RB/Slot *** Detroit Cass Tech (no offer)
Zach Matthias OT *** Hemlock (no offer)
Cameron Gordon WR *** Inkster (no offer)
Reid Fragel TE/OT *** Grosse Pointe South (no offer)
Thomas Gordon QB *** Detroit Cass Tech (no offer)

Of those, the only one who is a pipe dream to commit is James Jackson. Sims is also unlikely, but possible. I believe any of the others could commit if offered, along with lower-ranked state prospects if they get offers.

Out of state prospects who could be candidates to commit:

Zach Boren LB/DE *** Pickerington, OH (no offer)
Morgan Newton QB **** Carmel, IN (no offer)
Justin Turner DB **** Massilon, OH Washington (offer)

I wouldn't be surprised if Michigan got upwards of five commits, but I also wouldn't be surprised if Rich Rodriguez ended up with no pledges.

etc. Detroit News article by Sam Webb on Michigan dual-threat-QB targets. Buckeyes already hard at work to beat Michigan. A columnist in... Omaha... says that Steve Threet's days are numbered.
