I would be ecstatic to close with Treadwell and Edwards. A few of us have been on the Berkley bandwagon for awhile now. I'm starting to doubt he gets an offer because of the limited slots at this point, but I honestly would love to have him in the class. A lot of people are down on him because of his size, but they should watch these highlights. Doesn't look like a 5-9 kid just using speed to beat bad high school players. Looks like he has good balance, vision, and clearly speed.
The highlights are long, but the run at the 1:04 mark is really impressive (runs between the tackles, jukes a guy, breaks 3 tackles, then turns on the speed to beat the safety to the endzone).
Junior football highlights of 2013 prospect, Berkley Edwards -- APB from Chelsea (MI) HS.
My questions on Edwards are does he or can he build the strength to run like that in the Big Ten? And will he be able to hold up as an every down back in the Big Ten?
I don't know what to tell you on the Green thing but from what i have heard Green is more open to Michigan now than he was in the past.
Ya I really like Edwards, I hope he is in this class. I Also like the idea of taking care of family, he grew up rooting for UofM and u can bet he would play his *** off for us. Mike Hart was small and he ended up just fine ha. But if we close with treads and McQuay and have to say no to Edwards ill be just fine.
We havent had alot of "elite rbs"? How far back does your history of Michigan football go? I swear it's likely most of you just started watching when Rich Rod was hired... Know your history.

Although I'm familiar with Biakabatuka, Perry, Wheatly, Thomas, etc., it was before my time. I've seen highlights, but I was too young to even watch them play. Just take into consideration the age of the some of the people on the board.
Disagree.....Mike Hart being injured was the reason we lost to App state. He was also injured with ankle injuries for a couple Ohio games that could have been more competitive and gave us a shot to win.
Thats what im doing my fault if I came off as hostile, just annyoning to here comments like this about the skill positions when most have no idea what f*ck they are talking about.
Still disagree. If McQuay was not srious for us, he would not waste more time coming into the BBQ. I believe we still have a chance.

Edwards ??? No way. This scenario happens only if none of the elites want in at the end, and pressure to take a legacy becomes the focal point. I am not sold on him.

sorry, I'm talking about now with recruits.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
I think we have a chance, just think Vandy is in a great spot right now. If L3 visits for the BBQ our odds go way up. I also think it helps that he played 3 games today against Shane, Khalid, and Csonte and hopefully got a chance to talk to them a bit at the tourney (same with Bailey).
Mike Hart wasn't injured because he was small, he was just injury prone IMO. Brandon Minor was a big back and was always hurt with ankle sprains or arm injuries. Carlos Brown was a bigger back and was...well he was Carlos "snakebit" Brown. Injuries happen and some guys get injured more than others.
Pretty sure McQuay will be at Gridiron Kings during the BBQ. The camp ends on the 29th, which is when the BBQ is. Not sure if timing will permit him to come.
The point still stands, none of these guys have even played a down in college how do we know their not "elite", "good", or just your run of the mill average division 1 back. We won't know until a couple years down line. For all we know a guy like Norfleet could end up being our number 1 back, sometimes you just never know.
Yes, but you can still have elite recruits. It remains to be seen what they'll do on the field, but as it has been proven 4/5 stars will be on average better players for you, and the only 4 star RBs we've gotten over the last two years are Norfleet and Smith.
Justice Hayes was a 4 star correct? That is at least one 4star back in every class for the last 3 years. I like Thomas Rawls more then all of those guys as an overall back and he was a 2 or 3 star depending on what site you look at. I think he is going to be a really good player, he should see good time this year as our number 2 back behind Toussiant.
Reminds me of Jamie Morris with more speed.
We once had a stable of Tony Boles and Allen Jefferson, 2 top rbs in the midwest and both came to Michigan the same year. Guess who wasthe star? Leroy Hoard
I and no one else is saying it happens every time, but I'd rather fill it with highly touted players and an occasional underrated 3 star like Drake Johnson. 1 in 13 5 stars become all americans where 1 in 172 3 stars become all americans
Justice Hayes was 2011 btw

I ain't mad, just dropping knowledge
I remember that, Hoard was a beast. I use to call him "Darth Vader" because he had the tinted shield on his face mask. What a stable. My Dad told me when he was young they debated which was the best team in the country Michigan's first or second team.
Team was loaded ad we had Tripp Welborne and Vada Murray as our safeties.
We shall see. I place the percentages for Green at less than 5% - at best.
Green isn't coming here.
