Recruiting Update: September 15, 2015

Akron (OH) Hoban offensive guard Nolan Rumler

Akron (OH) Hoban offensive guard Nolan Rumler was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 290 lb. prospect who does not have any highlights posted, to my knowledge. He is a teammate of 2017 running back Todd Sibley, Jr.

Here’s a long list of visitors to the Big House from last Saturday (LINK).

The recruit tracker tag (LINK) will catch you up on the recent updates for Michigan commits and their senior seasons.

Michigan vs. Oregon State Awards

Ian Bunting

Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . 
Ian Bunting. Bunting made 2 catches for 33 yards in this game. He also did a nice job of breaking tackles on his way to a season-long 21-yard gain. Outside of starter Jake Butt, Bunting might have the most upside as a receiving tight end, and he has put on a good amount of weight since the spring, when he looked very thin. He now looks viable at the position, standing in at 6’7″, 243 lbs. At that size and with decent speed, he’s tough to cover.

Hit the jump for the remainder of the awards.

Michigan 35, Oregon State 7

De’Veon Smith

Oregon State is bad.
 This was the first thing that stuck out to me after watching the full game. I hate to burst the bubble of anyone hoping that Michigan improved greatly from week one to week two, but I’m not sure that this game is evidence of a ton of Michigan improvement. Oregon State had two bad snaps on punts, dropped a kickoff, consistently allowed Michigan’s defensive line to get penetration, and couldn’t bring down De’Veon Smith, who other teams haven’t struggled that much with in his first two-plus seasons. The Beavers also didn’t have a dangerous passing game, even after top cornerback Jourdan Lewis left the game early with what looked like a possible concussion. I like Gary Andersen as a coach, but he has a young team with lots of holes right now.

Hit the jump for some more thoughts on Michigan’s win over Oregon State.
