Former Michigan Athlete of the Week: Tom Brady

Tom Brady

Tom Brady had another good game this week in a 40-32 win over the Buffalo Bills. The New England Patriots quarterback completed 38/59 passes for 466 yards and 3 touchdowns. He leads the NFL in passing touchdowns after two weeks.

Honorable mention: With each passing year, it seems like the number of impact players in the NFL that went to Michigan continues to dwindle. Honorable mention this week goes to Brady’s teammate, Alan Branch, who made 1 sack that caused a fumble.

Recruiting Update: September 23, 2015

Clearwater (FL) Clearwater running back Adarius Lemons


Collierville (TN) St. George’s running back Chase Hayden was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’11”, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Tennessee and Vanderbilt. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #33 running back, and #436 overall. Hayden is the son of Aaron Hayden, who grew up in Detroit and played running back for the Tennessee Volunteers before an NFL career with the Chargers, Packers, and Eagles (784 rushing yards, 4 touchdowns in his career). The younger Hayden has the Volunteers on top, but he is still near the beginning of his recruiting process.

Clearwater (FL) Clearwater running back Adarius Lemons was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’1″, 185 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, and Louisville. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #23 running back, and #289 overall. Lemons is a speedy back who’s shifty and does a nice job of fighting for yardage. Michigan is offering some talented running backs in 2017 and trying to get in on them early so they can supplement the current roster.

Hit the jump for a player who committed elsewhere and some random bits.

Ex-Wolverine Updates: Week 3

Dennis Norfleet (#18)

Former quarterback Russell Bellomy:
 Bellomy was 1/4 for 3 yards, and he ran 2 times for 2 yards in the University of Texas-San Antonio’s 69-14 loss to Oklahoma State.

Former cornerback commit Gareon Conley: Conley had 1 pass breakup in Ohio State’s too-close 20-13 victory over Northern Illinois.
Former cornerback Blake Countess: Countess had 4 tackles and 1 pass breakup, but the Auburn Tigers got trounced by the LSU Tigers, 45-21. Countess was the unfortunate recipient of a Leonard Fournette trucking, too.

Hit the jump for numerous other updates on former Wolverines.

Michigan vs. UNLV Awards

Jourdan Lewis

Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . 
Ty Isaac. This is not a new refrain for me, but it’s worth repeating. I think Isaac is the most talented back on the roster, and while his best career game did come against UNLV – which is not a quality opponent – it’s important to note that starter De’Veon Smith didn’t perform very well, either (13 carries, 33 yards). Meanwhile, Isaac had 8 carries for 114 yards and 1 score. Take away his 76-yard touchdown run, and he still ran 7 times for 38 yards (5.4 yards/carry). As things stand right now, Smith is averaging 3.9 yards/carry and Isaac is at 8.9, while Derrick Green sits at 3.5 and Drake Johnson has 5.2. Yards per carry is not the only measurement of a running back, but his primary job is to gain yards on the ground. Smith has 53 attempts this year, while Isaac has only 18. That’s too much of an imbalance.

Hit the jump for the rest of the awards for this week.
