Visitors: Michigan vs. Michigan State

    Theo Johnson (#20, image via DawgNation)

    I will be adding tot his list throughout the week.

    2020

    Theo Johnson - TE - Windsor (Ontario) Holy Names: Johnson is a 6'6", 242 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, and Penn State, among others. He's a 4-star, the #3 tight end, and #95 overall. The crystal ball is 60% for Penn State and 40% undecided; it appears to me that if it's not Penn State, it will be Michigan. This is his last official visit before announcing his decision on November 18.

    James Pogorelc - OT - Chantilly (VA) Chantilly: Pogorelc is a 6'7", 270 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, North Carolina, Stanford, and Virginia, among others. He's a 3-star, the #31 offensive tackle, and #369 overall. Right now his crystal ball is 100% for Stanford.

    Highlights: Illinois 37, Michigan State 34

    One of the joys of being on one side of a rivalry is enjoying your opponent's misery. Michigan State was up 28-3 on Illinois, and the Fighting Illini came back to win, 37-34. It was the largest comeback in Illinois history at the expense of guys wearing jerseys designed by a blindfolded 3-year-old.

    Also, former Michigan QB Brandon Peters threw 3 touchdowns for the Illini.

    Nightly Roundup: November 9, 2019

    Joshua Uche

    Offensive guard Ben Bredeson, safety Josh Metellus, and linebacker Joshua Uche have all committed to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl. That indicates that Uche - who could potentially have one year of eligibility remaining - is gone after this season, which makes sense. I don't think he has much more to prove in college.

    What do we think about Michigan's biggest rivals turning out to be cheaters yet again? Michigan State linebacker Joe Bachie was supposedly using PEDs, and Ohio State's best player is suspended for taking money he shouldn't have taken. I never would have expected that kind of activity from those schools . . .
