Jabrill Peppers Not Going Anywhere
Despite a certain national analyst's attempts at making it seem like Jabrill Peppers is looking hard at Alabama, Peppers will not be decommitting from Michigan. His coach is on record saying that Jabrill hasn't spoken to another team and will not go against his commitment.
Expect analysts to continue to stir the pot. Michigan's losses are by no means helping its cause in recruiting, but they have yet to cost Michigan a recruit. Most of the lazy reporters attempting to create Peppers decommitment stories will tell you that he might follow good friend Da'Shawn Hand to Alabama, but Peppers spent months convincing Hand to follow him to Michigan. Simple logic would tell you that Hand will play for Alabama and Peppers will play for Michigan.
Harris, Enwere Piling Yardage Up
Michigan 2015 five-star running back commitment Damien Harris is back to putting up godlike numbers:
2015 RB Damien Harris had 341 yards on 21 carries and 6 TD's in his game tonight. Avg. 16.2 yards/carry— Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH) November 16, 2013
Certainly his level of competition isn't–
Harris' coach said that performance was against the No. 1 run defense in Kentucky.— Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH) November 16, 2013
Well, there you have it. Damien Harris takes your top-ranked run defense and toys around with it like a cat plays with its food. He has size, breakaway speed, and is much more elusive than I once gave him credit for. In short, there is good reason to call him a five-star running back.
Class of 2014 running back Vic Enwere is a mere three-star, but he's putting up five-star statistics in the best football state in the country:
Update: 2,266 Yds 32 TDs on the season— The Only .23 (@A1_Pericoo) November 17, 2013
Vic's senior tape is impressive. I know I've shared it before, but it's worth sharing again:
Enwere is similar to Michigan State commitment Madre London. Both are on the taller, stronger end of the spectrum, lacking that next-level gear once they reach the secondary.
Vic is currently committed to California but is planning to visit Michigan. The Golden Bears are struggling, to say the least, only beating lowly Portland State. Expect the Wolverines to make a massive impression on Enwere when he visits, possibly flipping the Texas product if he's willing to compete with Harris, Green and Smith for the majority of his career.
General Notes and Multimedia Items
Four-star Michigan linebacker commitment Michael Ferns watched from the sidelines as his St. Clarisville team lost in the Ohio playoffs. His younger brother Brendan Ferns has sophomore year highlights up on Hudl, and he already looks like a BCS-level prospect. Standing at 6'3", the younger Ferns could easily push 6'5" and grow into a weak side defensive end. Otherwise, expect him to be a SAM.
