2020 National Signing Day #2 Primer

2020 National Signing Day #2 Primer


February 5, 2020
Nick Patterson

There’s very little hoopla surrounding Michigan recruiting going into the second signing period, but since this is largely a recruiting-focused site, I thought I would provide a look at the players Michigan offered who are still undecided. I will fill out this list as National Letters of Intent start rolling in across the country.

Hit the jump for more.

QB C.J. Dixon:
RB Lamy Constant: Toledo
RB Michael Drennen II: Kentucky
RB Zach Evans:
RB Brandon Fields:
WR Ashton Allen:
WR Lamareon James: Old Dominion
WR Mike Robertson:
TE Dee Beckwith: Tennessee
TE Nick Patterson: Princeton (flipped from Michigan)
OL Marcus Henderson: Arkansas
OL Miller Merriweather-Lewis:
DE Kevon Billingsley:
DT Jayson Jones: Oregon (flipped from Alabama)
DT Jeffrey M’ba:
DT Jonathan Wallace:

Michigan “commit” Nick Patterson is not expected to sign with the Wolverines.

OFF THE BOARD ALREADY

Here’s a look at a few players who have committed in recent weeks when we haven’t been paying much attention.

    Anybody know what’s the deal with Jeffrey M’ba.

    I think he can play.

      I haven’t heard anything definitive. He’s an immigrant to the U.S., so I believe there were some concerns about his academics.

    I don’t like the new signing day structure. Maybe I’m getting old and cranky but I liked things the way they were.

    Every MSU recruit should be released from their obligation, if they so choose, as should any player whose coach departs for any reason.

      I agree. I don’t think it makes a whole lot of sense for the players. If they want to enroll early, they should be able to enroll early. And if they’re not enrolling early, they should be able to wait until as late as reasonably possible to secure their spot in a class.

      It’s not as fun for the fans (which is secondary), but more importantly, it’s unfair to the kids who are actually signing the letters of intent and don’t have the flexibility to make their decision when other pieces are falling into place outside their control.
