Monday Michigan Football Recruiting Roundup Blames Todd

MRR updates you on the very latest Michigan football recruiting rumblings. Who gets the gold star of the week for best on-field performance? How many All-American high schoolers is Michigan rounding up? That and more.

Todd must die. I wasn't at home to watch him kill Andrea at the usual 9 pm air time, so I spent half of my night trying to find a way to watch the latest Breaking Bad episode online. Todd is to blame for the death of two completely innocent characters, the slavery of Jesse, and for my tardiness; that's one crime too many, bud.

Speaking of Psychos

Michigan's commitments are playing out of their damn minds on the field, Michael Ferns included:

Jabrill Peppers nearly killed a young man on the field before taking an interception to the house. His hit gets him honors for the week.

Shaun Crawford is playing well:

As is Wilton Speight:

Speight's trainer apparently sees him as the next Big Ben:

No. First of all, Speight will be on the opposite end of the QB spectrum, managing games and using accuracy instead of sheer ball speed. Second, Speight is a responsible young man who won't grow up to give Americans the heebie jeebies. Just no.

Class of 2015 quarterback target Alex Malzone made this clutch play to keep Brother Rice undefeated on the season:

His stock is rising in my book.

General Notes and Multimedia Items

Michigan's poor showings against Akron and Connecticut aren't getting to Mason Cole:

Michigan would have to finish the season roughly 7-5 or worse in order for its commitments to start falling off. Most of these kids have been bonding and recruiting in favor of the Wolverines for months now; don't expect anyone to jump ship.

George Campbell will represent Michigan in next year's Under Armour All-American Game:

Michigan has seven commitments in the 2014 game. All-American bowls are suddenly much more worth your time.

Finally, four-star 2015 athlete Brian Cole will visit Ohio State when they take on Wisconsin. Michigan State failed to maintain its lead with the receiver/corner combo player, and now the Buckeyes will look to seize momentum in his recruitment.
