Nightly Roundup: February 5, 2019

Chris Evans

A lot of stuff happened today in the world of Michigan football. I don’t have time to write about it all because I woke up at 3:30 a.m. and worked until 8:30 p.m., so we’ll just stick with the roundup:

Presumed starting running back Chris Evans isn’t on the team anymore, so that’s awesome (LINK).

Former Michigan running back and running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley, Jr. will be the new head coach at Morgan State (LINK).

Quarterbacks coach Pep Hamilton will be coaching somewhere else next season (LINK).

The student body walk-on tryout process begins tomorrow:

The jerk who shined a laser on Tom Brady in the AFC Championship game didn’t get away with it (LINK).

The Detroit News asked a bunch of in-state recruits why they did (or did not) pick Michigan and Michigan State (LINK).

Bruce Feldman, from The Athletic, revisits the main characters from his Meat Market book (LINK).

This truly was the best commercial of the whole Super Bowl. I loved seeing the “old-timey” football players.

Here’s a little bit of info about the Lombardi Trophy:

Amauri Pesek-Hickson, Ex-Wolverine

Leawood (KS) Blue Valley North LB Amauri Pesek-Hickson

Leawood (KS) Blue Valley North linebacker Amauri Pesek-Hickson decommitted from Michigan on Monday:

 

Pesek-Hickson is a 247 Composite 3-star, the #44 athlete, and #743 overall. He explained that Michigan is tight on numbers right now and wants to get defensive end and defensive tackle grad transfers, meaning they no longer have room for him to sign his National Letter of Intent on Wednesday. Michigan is pursuing Rice defensive tackle Zach Abercrumbia and Central Michigan defensive end Mike Hanna.

He did leave open the possibility of going to prep school, though he stressed that academics are not an issue. It’s not a great sign that his academics appear to be in order (he reported a 30 on the ACT) and Michigan wants him to go the prep school route, but Pesek-Hickson’s only other reported offer comes from Missouri State, so options might be somewhat limited. Michigan has had a couple players attempt to go the prep school route in recent years, with Brad Hawkins waiting from 2016 to 2017 to join the program, while linebacker Dytarious Johnson eventually ended up at Eastern Illinois.

Michigan now has 26 commits in the 2019 class, and no more commitments are expected from high schoolers. While Pesek-Hickson was likely to play linebacker, he had the versatility to play a few different positions. Michigan still has several linebackers in the class, including Anthony Solomon, Charles Thomas, and Joey Velazquez, not to mention Daxton Hill and Quinten Johnson, who could both play Viper. The team currently has 86 scholarship players slated to be on the roster in 2019 (LINK), so some things will have to fall into place in order to fit all the 2019 signees and any potential transfers.
