That stands at 21 commits. Missing are Kenny Demens a LB, he had a funeral today and just has not been able to fax in his LOI. Long Snapper George Morales has not sent his LOI in yet, there is some speculation that he may grayshirt so his Scholarship doesn't count for this semester. Michigan will not have to worry about these two players wavering.
Obviously one big Michigan verbal commit is missing from that list, Youtube sensation RB Sam McGuffie. There have been rumors that McGuffie is also now looking at Cal and TAMU. The speculation is that he will in the end be at Michigan, but there is some need for concern. For what its worth Tom Beaver (recruiting guru) thinks McGuffie will end up a wolverine.
Of course Terrelle Pryor is not on that list, nor is he on anyone's list. Will he end up at UM? My guess is no, I really think PSU is coming on strong and that Pryor will either end up in Happy Valley or in Columbus. Michigan fans would be much happier with Pryor not going to Michigan as long as he doesn't end up at OSU.
Thats all for now, but once McGuffie situation gets sorted out, and the last LOIS get sent in I will provide a much more detailed post analyzing the impact the recruits will have on the 2008 season.
