Success breds success. Could a top 5 recruiting class this year impact a prospect in 2014 or 2015. Maybe. Michigan already has it going recruitingwise, but a higher final ranking is better than a lower one.
Hell, remember back when the first ESPN rankings came out? All the recruits were saying that they were loving the fact that their names were plastered all over ESPN, and they were being touted, on national TV, as "the best class in the country." Recruits love that.
I have no doubt that Morris, Dawson, Bosch, Thomas, and a couple of the other highly-ranked recruits who committed early used that in recruiting other players. A handful of the other later recruits mentioned Morris telling them to come to Michigan to "make the best class in the country even better." With this trend towards kids recruiting each other, giving them a recruiting weapon like being the top class in the country is invaluable.
Why do people keep alluding to the fact that Wyatt Shallman will not be in this class or transfer?
I assume you are referring to the twitter verse? Anyone of note alluding?
No, people on this board...
Why would Shallman not be in this class?
He's all Blue
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
I've seen them say that he may not end up at RB, but I've never seen anyone question whether he's going to be at Michigan. He's 100% blue.
Where have you seen that? Maybe I just missed it, but I honestly don't remember ever seeing that topic/possibility even come up.
This guy for one
He means at another position.
Elsewhere = not at RB
My bad, that is somewhat ambiguous, but Ducks got it right, I was just talking position-wise. Shallman is as much of a Michigan lock as Shane.
Quick bump/update: Rivals' final Rivals 100 keeps Derrick Green as the #1 RB in the country and moves him up to #8 overall. As a result, the final 247 composite rankings now have him as a 5*, #26 overall
FWIW Farrell kind of backing off on DG now saying not as much as a lock as before to us
Just hedging his bets. God forbid he's wrong.
Of course. He got real confident Green would be blue just so he could twist the knife as it got closer to the 26th.
I think Green lands in Auburn. His mom seemed to like Auburn the best and as we know with Treadwell, mommy's usually have a good say in things. I hope I'm wrong and maybe it's just me being used to seeing us finish second the past few years.
From everything I've seen his mom likes Michigan the most.
