A History of #1 Safety Recruits

You can help me out by ordering things through Amazon:

When Michigan has landed a #1 recruit in the past, I have always done a look back at how other #1 rated prospects have performed in the past. I meant to do that with the safety position after Daxton Hill committed to the Wolverines, but somehow I didn’t get around to it.

Here it is.

2000: O.J. Owens – S – New London (NC) North Stanly
Owens (Tennessee) played in eighteen games from 2000-2003 but never achieved a great amount of success. He did not play in the NFL. He dealt with shoulder and head injuries throughout his career and sued the NCAA in 2016 due to head injury concerns.

2001: Ernest Shazor – S – Detroit (MI) King
Shazor (Michigan) contributed as a redshirt freshman and spent three more years in Ann Arbor, making 166 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, 4 interceptions (1 TD), 5 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, and 12 pass breakups. He was a First Team All-American in 2004. He made a questionable decision to leave for the NFL after his redshirt junior year, and he was not picked in the 2005 NFL Draft. He spent one season with the Cardinals, playing in just two games.

Recent Michigan commit Casey Phinney had this to say…

…and I approve of his comments. Maybe I’m considered one of the doubters, but I’ll be rooting for him to prove me wrong.

Carrollton (TX) Hebron LB Darius Snow (image via TexAgs)

2020 CLASS RANKING
#43 nationally, #10 in Big Ten. The Spartans signed 22 three-stars.

CREAM OF THE 2020 CROP
Michigan State signed just three players in the top 500 players nationally. The top-ranked guy is Marietta (GA) Marietta wide receiver Ricky White (#70 WR, #414 overall, highlights here) and following right behind is Carrollton (TX) Hebron linebacker Darius Snow (#28 OLB, #436 overall). He’s the son of former Michigan State point guard Eric Snow and the nephew of former Spartans (and NFL) linebacker Percy Snow. Snow looks like a linebacker/safety hybrid at the next level.
