Rashan Gary talks U-M, OSU

Five-star 2016 defensive tackle Rashan Gary (Paramus, New Jersey) is the top prospect on the board for a lot of schools in the country, but perhaps is the biggest priority for the Michigan.

At The Opening in Beaverton, Oregon, Gary opened up to 247's Alex Gleitman (FREE) about where Michigan stands, as well as dispelling a rumor about a rival school.

On How Important His Relationship Is With Michigan Recruiting Staffer Chris Patridge (his former HS head coach): "It's important. My coach, he knows the scheme I like to play. He knows the speed I like to play. He knows the type of player I am. He wouldn't lead me towards a place that wouldn't fit me."

Gary visited Ohio State not too long ago and the rumor was that it did not go well. He seemed to deny that during the interview:

On his mom's impression of Ohio State from the visit: "My mom likes Larry Johnson. That's a relationship I have built since the ninth grade, so I'm very close with him. My mom loves the feel for Urban Meyer. He's cool. A lot of people say he's stuck up, but that wasn't the case at all."

Peters' busy week in Oregon

Michigan's 2016 quarterback commit Brandon Peters (Avon, Indiana) has been in Beaverton all week for both the Elite 11 Finals and The Opening. There have been mixed reviews about his performances, but he has gotten some good work this week with some of the top prospects in the country.

With so many outlets covering the event, it is tough to hone in on what exactly is up, but MGoFish has done a very good job keeping up with everything and put a tweetcap together of Peters-related material.

Peoples-Jones is the top athlete at The Opening

Class of 2017 wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones (Detroit, Michigan) may only be a junior, but he is one of the best football players in the country and continues to prove it on the biggest stage.

It says a lot that out of the 166 prospects in attendance, Peoples-Jones scored the highest. He is only going to get better and will be yet another blue chip prospect to emerge from the halls of Cass Tech HS.
