Durant (OK) Durant defensive tackle Xadavien Sims (4-star, #23 DL, #194 overall) committed to Oregon.

Baltimore (MD) St. Frances quarterback Michael Van Buren (4-star, #11 QB, #129 overall) committed to Oregon. At one point it seemed like Penn State might land him, so it takes a 4-star quarterback off to Pac-12 country instead of putting him in the Big Ten. Right now PSU’s quarterback is a 3-star and the #575 player in the nation, Ethan Grunkemeyer.


During a slow week for Michigan recruiting – at least in the 2024 class – the biggest news was probably the hiring and subsequent resignation of Shemy Schembechler.

Here’s an article from 247 Sports discussing the development (LINK). I’ve thought for a couple months that it was odd Michigan was hiring someone with the last name Schembechler, considering the microscope that Bo has come under over the past couple years. I guess it seemed like a bad idea because it was indeed a bad idea.
