0% chance. All of our current DT targets are high on our board. If we miss on all, the coaches will likely extend new offers to guys not ask a top 100 guy to flip sides.
I really don't think this is going to happen, Just a guess but I say Poggi will be blue sometime in june as well. Along with Hurst probably sunday or early next week.

I had this thought too, but the more I think about it, the more I don't like the idea. Fox has prototypical attributes for the tackle position, but not at tackle. His height will make it tough for him to be a nose, but his weight will likely make it difficult to be the gap attacking 3-tech that Mattison wants too.
I think Fox could be a good defensive tackle, but his ceiling is much higher as a tackle.
Plus I seriously doubt we strike out with enough DT candidates to make the staff even consider it.
Scott Pagano let me know earlier today that Florida has offered.
Would say he doesn't even visit at this point.
As did Tennessee.
It's tough to say at this point. He's got an unbelievable offer list, so to land in his top-5 will be an impressive feat for anyone.
How many commits will we get in June? I say 2 Poggi and Hurst.
Hawaii would be a top 25 if they could put a fence around the islands. Unfortunately, Greg McMackin was an idiot and our facilities are terrible.
Are teams just offering at this point so they can go to Hawaii to recruit him?
That's gotta be it. Looking at his offer list, Alabama is the only team missing. Every other team in the history of football has offered Pagano.
I saw an offer from Chicago, they don't even have a team anymore.
I'm pretty sure the Boston Red Sox offered.
Actually, Chicago is division 3 FWIW.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
Treadwell, Poggi, Hurst, Fuller, Mathis, Green/Wilkins/ Allen
There's a lot out there still.
Seriously, flip-flopping line commits and changing positions because we can't fill one side or the other? Who are we, Ohio State?
I keed, I keed.
Hmmm ... do you follow SW and lean towards 2-3, or play it safe and say 1 is possible? Mathis seems most likely to me, unless he has second thoughts on these other offers. Honestly, he seems like a natural fit for Michigan. Poggi, Treadwell, Fuller seem to have a longer commitment timeline to me. Meaning, Poggie and Treadwell know enough I suspect on what Michigan has to offer. So, why wait?

You mean Hurst is most likely? I think there will be more than one based on how confident SW sounds on the recruiting roundups.
Fox is a top DT
Ahh ... yes! Long day today.
Forgive me I guess I'm late to the party but are we talking about UM commit OL Chris Fox outta Colorado??
Check out my 2 deep of UM's base 4-3 under defense, let me know your thoughts. Last updated: 3/28/12
Yeah. He's a very good DT, but he's not gonna play there. He's much better as an OG or RT. He's a great DT but an elite OL. No way he switches.
I'm aware, I've watched his tape. He's just much better on the OL than the DL - if we absolutely needed him (as in, BWC, Washington, Ash, and Pipkins all go down in a freak string of injuries) I could see him getting moved over, but for now, I'd much rather explore his absolutely elite offensive tackle prospects.
