SB Nation Predicts Rashan Gary Will Land At….

Michigan!

Bud Elliott from SBNation has posted an article predicting when the remaining five star recruits will end up on national signing day.  This is what he says about the #1 recruit in the country.

The first school the 6’4, 290-pounder (who can run a 4.74 40) mentioned when I interviewed him in 2014 was Alabama, and the Tide have been on this Garden State prospect for a long time. Other SEC schools like Georgia and Auburn, as well as ACC school Clemson are trying to get in the mix. Ole Miss has done a great job working on he and his mother as well, and I’m told they are close with Ole Miss offensive tackle commit Greg Little.

But my pick for the country’s No. 1 overall recruit is Michigan. Gary’s former coach Chris Partridge is the new director of recruiting operations, and two former teammates of Gary’s, Jabrill Peppers and Juwann Bushell-Beatty, are also in Ann Arbor.

AUDIO: MICHIGAN STATE SHOULDN’T BE IN THE PLAYOFF?

Wow, this is a stunning revelation and a really bad sports take, FOX Sports Daybreak hosts Andy Furman and Mike North  claim the Michigan State Spartans should never have been in position to make the College Football Playoff Final Four.  More Dantonio “disrespect?”

Don’t get me wrong, this clip is hilarious but it couldn’t be more wrong, North claims Michigan’s near loss to Michigan should have been enough to keep them out of the playoff, conveniently brushing off the Ohio State win by saying “if, Ohio State had their heads right, they would have beat sparty.”  Huh?

He rushed for an additional 1,112 yards on 148 carries for 17 touchdowns. He finished with 3,222 all-purpose yards, a whopping 292.9 per game, while also spending some time at linebacker. Michigan’s 2016 recruiting class now stands at 21 and is ranked in the top 5. Not long after his decommitment, Viramontes tweeted this….




REPORT: Elite DC and Recruiter is Interested In The Michigan DC Job.

There are now some reports that new Georgia Head Coach Kirby Smart will not retain Jeremy Pruitt as Defensive Coordinator of the Bulldogs.

While most expect Pruitt to end up with Nick Saban at Alabama, there are reports that Pruitt has interest in the Michigan DC gig.

The former Florida State DC during their 2013 national championship team, Pruitt, 41, is known as one of the best recruiters in the country. Five-stars Jacob Eason, Derrick Henry, Jalen Ramsey and Lorenzo Carter were just a few of the recruits Pruitt was the main recruiter during his time at Georgia and previously Alabama.
