Coach Brown reporting that Malik McDowell will be visiting this weekend.
“Those who stay will be champions”
― Bo Schembechler
Steve, any word on this? It'd be absolutely fantastic to get him up on campus again - he and Hand can become friends.
He left me a voicemail during the game this afternoon and it was all messed up like he was breaking up. I just texted him; should know in the morning. As of about 3:30 this afternoon, Doles was the only addition to the original four (including Ferns). Malik wasn't planning on taking any more visits anytime soon, but with the Lemming shoot I imagine it's a possibility.
McDowell+Hand+ = death to opposing linemen.
I'm glad Lorenzo Featherston will be visiting Michigan during the summer.
I think it'll be very difficult to beat NC State or UNC for him but he's essentially a similar version of Tyrone Wheatley Jr.

McDowell will be in town for the Tom Lemming photo shoot that I brought up yesterday. He's not a confirmed visitor to Michigan's spring practice on Saturday, but it's still a possibility.
Nice, thanks Steve. Any time we can get him up to AA works in our favor. Hopefully he sticks around for the spring practice.
A recruiting roundup-type article on TOS has Darius West putting us in his top-5 with Notre Dame, MSU, Tennessee and Kentucky and wanting to make a summer decision. Sort of a weird situation because of those schools, Kentucky is the only one who's offered him. Well-regarded prospect though: #212 here, #194 to Rivals and #178 to Scout.
Another Jayme Thompson situation?
Mone + McDowell + Hand + any other DE on our offer list = insane DL class

We need an official rosterbating thread for comments like this.
I think Steve may have reported on west before but the coaches are in constant contact with him, still recruiting him. I think the coaches have been upfront that a offer may come once they have clarity on other targets. Likely similar situations with the other schools in his top 5. I always find this interesting nonetheless because if the summer comes and UK is still his only offer are you committing to the school who recognized you with a scholly, getting a place holder, or will you extend your timeline?
It may turn out similar to the back osu grabbed last year. He has us, wv and nd as finalist and wv was only team that offered. Osu offered him late and he decommitted from them to attend osu....
I have a good feeling about hand this weekend.
Woops, just saw this.
Basically between UM and VaTech. If we blow him away....i don't care what timeline he has. I see a commit by summer time. Total speculation obviously tho.
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
Don't think you can ever completely count out Alabama for elite DLs. Also think its possible for UF and SCAR to make a move.
Michigan fans stand up! You have made my top 15 list! #GoBlue
additional note: Rivals will apparently be upgrading him to 5* status when their next rankings come out. Video of him at the Rivals camp in LA from last weekend, narrator calls him "a more athletic version of Ty Isaac"
additional note 2: he says this is a Final 15 and he will not talk to any schools he didn't name.
additional note 3: the schools he tweeted were Oregon State, Tennessee, Washington, Ohio State, Cal, Georgia, Oklahoma, UCLA, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Texas A&M, Michigan, Clemson, Notre Dame, Arizona State, and USC, in that order (although he insists order doesn't matter, and I tend to believe him). I've counted that 3 times and keep coming up with 16, but there you go.

I'll save that idea for the 2014 NSD.
“@TremendousUM: Artavis Scott RT @tayscott7 Just got offered by Oregon #blessed
“@MasonCole52: Cograts to my boy @tayscott7 being offered by Oregon. But he knows where his home is #GoBlue”
come on mason, bring him home to ann arbor.
