Maize n Brew Week in Review: What you missed here from April 13-17

Here’s a recap of some of the work we did here this week.

NCAA Basketball: Penn State at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Despite a lack of sports in the world right now, it was a fairly busy week in the land of the Michigan Wolverines that felt like a month (and also provided a few gray hairs in the process).

Here’s a recap of what we wrote this week on the site:

Josh Christopher, Isaiah Todd fallout: What happened, next priorities, potential transfers and more

Michigan Men’s Basketball lost out on a pair of five-star recruits this week in somewhat surprising fashion, at least for one of the situations. This was a look at the fallout from both decisions and how it affects the ceiling for next season.

Projecting Michigan Basketball’s 2020-21 lineup without Josh Christopher, Isaiah Todd

Christopher and Todd figured to be starters in a scenario where they both decided to go to Michigan. Now, the lineup looks a heck of a lot different going into next season.

Isaiah Todd passed on Michigan for NBA G League, signaling a new trend to deal with

Christopher chose a different school, but Todd chose a different path entirely — the NBA G League. Other elite prospects are heading or considering that route as well, signaling a paradigm shift on the recruiting trail with new challenges to deal with.

Juwan Howard still signed the No. 8 recruiting class in the country and added a grad transfer in his first full cycle as Michigan’s head coach. We ran down all of the players with scouting reports, highlights, quotes from Howard and more.

USC transfer QB JT Daniels interested in Michigan, but should the feeling be mutual?

Another transfer quarterback for Michigan Football? He’s interested, and this is a look at the pros and cons of a potential courtship.

In the hidden world of special teams recruiting, Tommy Doman’s path was typical — until it wasn’t

Michigan recently landed a five-star punter, which is a different type of recruitment than what you might think it looks like. Above is a tremendous feature story put together by our Jacob Shames.

How Michigan football commits and targets fared in the updated recruiting rankings

247Sports put out its new 2021 recruiting rankings this week even as camps and evaluations are affected by the pandemic. As expected, there was a ton of movement in both directions for Michigan targets and commits.

The Wolverines landed a defensive end out of Don Brown territory on the east coast on Friday. It might be a few years before we see him on the field, but there is a lot to like here.

Michigan’s offensive line class might wind up being one of its best in quite some time and the Cass Tech product projects to be the anchor of that unit for years to come.

Rich Rodriguez: ‘Alabama would have been better fit for me than Michigan’

Rich Rod is feeling retrospective, and also probably states the obvious.
