No predictions for Artavis Scott yet.

Nice work putting this together!
I think the analysts are being too optimistic on Dickerson, but hopefully I'm wrong.
Thanks for the breakdown.
Michigan will get its chance with both of those players over the summer and during the 2013 season. Also, I'm anticipating the following 3 things:
- USC to have a rough season this year. Not quite 7-6 but definitely south of 10 wins (including the bowl).
- UCLA to also fall short of 10 wins (including the bowl season). For instance, UCLA's second game of the season will be @ Nebraksa.
- Notre Dame to also take a step back since Manti "Play like you fake girlfriend died" Teo won't be there.

100% Michigan for Daniel Helm (the Steves, Hamilton, and Daniel Flood from the Wisconsin site).
No picks yet for Weishar or Bunting.
Both Hamilton and Lorenz pick Northwestern for Tommy Doles.
no predictions for Kalen Ballage
No predictions for Shai McKenzie or Dravon Henry (not sure if they're really even on the radar anymore, anyway).
Also none yet for Corey Holmes.
Yeah, can't really expect anyone to predict that we'll land a recruit from California until they visit. Good chance that they'll have to sack Kiffin, hopefully creating some coaching uncertainty that we can capitalize off of.
This one surprised me.
+1, very surprised by unanimous on Marshall to MSU.
Are the analysts allowed to change their predictions?
Here's an example: JC originally predicted Stanford for Jabrill Peppers, but then he changed it to Michigan following Jabrill's visit.
For instance, [JC Shurburtt changed his Jabrill Peppers pick from Stanford to Michigan].
The site lists the change and when it was changed.
Great minds think alike.
You can even view Crystal Ball predictions sorted by the analyst.
The one I'm most surprised about is 3 analysts chose ND for Juju Smith, yet he hasn't visited them either.
We offered Juju before ND, and I might be wrong on this, but we also have a better medical program than ND, which is what Juju wants to major in.

I think so too, especially with Michigan only taking one TE. I see Dickerson ending up at Stanford, although I'd love for him to end up at Michigan.
That doesn't surprise me at all given all of his visits there and our targets at DE.
Not sure how well informed some of these recruits are, but ND doesn't actually have a medical school. Most you could do there is an undergraduate in bio-chem or something and get accepted by another institution.
Frankly, our DEs could end up being Hand and McDowell - I'll gladly let them have Marshall if we end up with those two.
Actually, this has been my guess for a while.
He seems to be playing things safe now that this stuff is on record.
Thanks for saving me a crapton of clicks
I laugh whenever people say they're "pre-med" for a major. The bottom line is there are minimum course prereqs when applying to med school (your chem, orgo, biology, quantitative/math classes, etc.) plus you have to take the MCAT and dominate all the subjects covered there. I get that some schools offer "pre-med" as a major...but really it is just a general studies degree with a heavy focus on the sciences.
You could go to med school with an English or Econ degree if you can schedule your classes to get all your sciences.
And yeah, Notre Dame doesn't have a med school so your point is dead on. Just wanted to point out one of my pet peeves when I hear high school students say they're serious about one thing or another for college or career but don't actually know anything about it. This does not just apply to football recruits.
