DeShone Kizer and/or Chance Stewart (QB)
Damon Webb (WR)
Jordan Van Dort (TE)
Brandon Hines (DT)

Those 5 or 6 could be the foundation of the 2014 class.

I just found some interesting tidbits from Nyles Morgan on a free 247 Sports article that was posted 5 days ago...
Morgan, who recorded 102 tackles, ten for a loss, six sacks and four forced fumbles last season, visited Ann Arbor last month, and the Wolverines have been coming on strong since he made the trip.
“I’ve been hearing a lot from Michigan lately,” he said. “I’m pretty interested in them. They told me that they run a 4-4 defense at times, and that’s the type of defense I’m used to playing in at my high school.
Even though Morgan does not know where his first offer will come from, he does know what he wants to see out of a program.
“I want to see hospitality from the places that are interested in me,” Morgan said. “Academics and athletics will be important … but especially the defense. I’m looking to play for a defense that’s known for making plays.
“No matter what, I’m going to wait until the very end to make my decision. I don’t plan on making any early commitments.”
That was posted on our site. Looks like tOSU is going after QB Drew Barker out of KY, have heard good things about this kid.
I just watched his tape.
Drew Barker looks pretty good on film. He actually seems somewhat similar to DeShone Kizer.
Barker, however, plays in a zone-read option which takes advantage of his dual-threat ability.

Here's a basic list of 2014 targets that we are interested in. Of course, it's still waaaaay early.
Jordan Van Dort
Doug DiFusco Jr.
Add Jalen Tabor to the CB's
Da'Shawn Hand, Malik McDowell, and Sam Mustipher to DL
Damon Webb to WR
Also, we're technically looking at Jordan Van Dort as an OT, not a TE. He plays TE in high school, but the coaches have already told him they want him as a lineman, and he's amenable to that.
I did now know that. Thanks for sharing that.
But frankly, I think Van Dort would make an excellent TE...especially if he shed some weight.
Aqua just did an interview with Jabril Peppers over at Tremendous. Apparently, Jabril has a greater interest in Michigan than previously thought; he said he grew up rooting for them, and that it would be a dream come true if they offered.
Apparently, five minutes after the interview, his coach told him that Michigan had offered him. Coincidence? This would be a huge get; I would compare Peppers to Kendall Fuller.
He has the speed and coverage skills of Kendall Fuller but the true playmaking ability of Stefon Diggs. Regardless, he is a very very good player.
That's excellent news!
I think Peppers is already better than Fuller. He was the best player on Don Bosco last year as a sophomore on a team with Yuri Wright, Elijah Shumate, and Darius Hamilton. The kid is a top 3 player in the 2014 class IMO.
Michigan is nutz!!!!!!!!!
I want this kid to come to Michigan so bad.
Sweet holy moses, I would kill to get Peppers in for 2014. The kid is an absolute maniac on the field, and I mean that in the best way possible. Plus, if we somehow pull Alquadin Muhammad this year, Peppers next year, and start building a pipeline into Don Bosco...?
I think he'd make a very good TE too, but I think the last thing the Michigan coaches want him to do is lose weight. They've talked about seeing him as just this massive, super-athletic freak of a tackle. Just imagine getting a kid that size into our college weight room for a couple years...lordy.
Would be awesome to land those two and to build a pipeline into Bosco but Peppers switched high schools recently. Would love to tap into the Bosco pipeline, though.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!

Diggin' the new av.
I asked JC last year how Peppers would rank compared to Fuller and any other CB's from 12-14 classes, he said Peppers>>>>everyone else. QB Parker looks like tOSU lean, they are really targeting him.
