Recruiting Update 6-27-08

The recruiting board is all-new! If you have any problems with the new incarnation, e-mail me right away. If you have any suggestions, questions, etc., let me know.

Since it's still in the buggy stages, everything is still up to date at the old board as well.

Moved to Committed:
IN LB Jordan Barnes. Commit article.
TX WR DeWayne Peace. Commit article. He may be moved to another position as word comes out about where Michigan recruited him to play.

Added:
FL LB Jon Bostic. He apparently holds an offer.
OK DE Pearlie Graves. Awesome name, Michigan offer (info in header).

New Information:
FL LB Brandon Hawthorne. We already knew Michigan and USF were his top choices, now we know that Louisville, Tennessee, and West Virginia round out the top 5.
SC DE Chris Bonds. Top 5 of USC, USC, Michigan, ND, and 'Bama.
OH OL Chris Freeman. Article with no Michigan mention. He is teetering near the edge of being dropped.
OK CB Gabe Lynn. Audio interview in the radio, top 5 by end of summer.
OK RB David Oku. Nebraska official 9-27.

Removed:
PA CB Corey Brown. As expected, commits to Ohio State.
PA DE Juantez Hollins. Pitt commit.
MI TE Mitch Kessel. Cincinnati commit. He was a longshot to ever get an offer.

Analysis:
Losing Brown to the Bucks isn't that big a deal, because it was expected and prepared for, and means OSU is starting to run low on scholarships to give to other '09 prospects. Barnes is a Chris Graham-ish player, and he may see a move to MAX back. DeWayne Peace could be a good WR or CB.

Etc.:

    Dude, the new recruiting board looks GREAT. JUST ONE THING: I would change the dotted line around the commits to a solid bold line; the dotted line is siezure inducing.

    Love the new board. Fyi - Todd Thomas reports an offer and speaks favorably of Michigan. David Wilson is a four star on both sites.

    i was half hoping for the "i posted" tag since panel did the board.

    Man I'd like to see Freeman just to at least give us a mention.

    FYI: I believe Malek Redd committed to Central Michigan earlier this week.

    Looks great! Sorry to be "that guy" but what about adding Tate Forcier?

    I like the new board, but when I open it in IE7 the popup windows are blank. It works in Firefox though.

    RE: chris freeman

    “My parents are from West Virginia so that alone sparks some interest for me,” Freeman stated. “I’m probably going to try to visit Illinois and Wisconsin next before I head down south.”

    might as well cross him off right now if his 'rents are from WV
