Michigan Football: MaizeMan Grading the 2013 Wolverine Football Recruits — Just for Fun
Here is a small sample of the Michigan Football Tidbits MaizeMan provides with over 20 prediction for the incoming 2013 recruiting class.
While we get through basically our second off week and prepare for Notre Dame (I thought based on conversations) would give my initial ratings of our incoming class. Now I know most believe this class takes us to the National Championship, but I tend to be more cautious in my judgements.
Here they are:
Those players who are “sure starters” at Michigan based of course that they stay healthy and despite any player Michigan may recruit during their tenure.
Our future offensive center no later than red-shirt sophomore year, maybe sooner. he wants to play offensive center and lately almost all top programs in the country are seeing his potential.
Believe it or not as talented as this incoming class is these are the only four who I feel fall under the “sure starter” category.
Players who could start early in their career, but will face some competition.
1) Shane Morris
While most have already crowned him the next four year stater at Michigan I have seen both a very high quality player and a player at times who struggles against existing competition. Good news is he is a very hard working kid, but people underestimate Bellomy and his ability. Morris should eventually win this job, but it wont be as easy as some speculate.
Those players who should play, but is going to have stiff competition and will have to either really make an early impression or just outwork others.
Okay, I almost put him in group #2 and believe it or not even considered him as a “sure starter”–because of his size at cornerback. But at this point not even sure he ends up at Michigan which is the only reason he is in this group. Conley to me would be a huge loss and his potential and size are very hard to find.
Not every player become starters in college. Some become role players, special teams players, or does not last four years at the school. These players could play, but would need a ton of breaks or just develop faster than expectations or players listed above just do no adapt to college, therefore falls.
Just not impressed. Had some good offers, but I did not see on film and think he struggles in college.
