Michigan Football is preparing for the Outback Bowl which will be played on New Years Day at 1pm. While we wait for that game, here are some team notes and recruiting updates. Team Notes Kick returner/RB, Dennis Norfleet has moved to cornerback. He will continue to return kicks. Freshman wide receiver Amara Darboh made a spectacular grab in a recent bowl practice. Check it out here Michigan will wear new uniforms for the Outback Bowl. See the video below for details JT Floyd, Brandin Hawthorne and Will Hagerup have been suspended for the Outback Bowl. For Floyd and Hawthorne, both seniors, it is a sad ending to their Michigan careers. Redshirt sophomore wide receiver Jerald Robinson has decided to leave the Michigan Football team. Michigan will host Notre Dame on September 7th next season and it will be a prime time game on ABC/ESPN. The University will also honor 1940 Heisman Trophy winner, Tom Harmon, in a pre-game ceremony. This will be the second night game in the history of Michigan Stadium. Taylor Lewan faces a big decision after the Outback Bowl. The All-American lineman is being projected as a Top 10 pick by many draft experts and he must decide whether or not he will return to Michigan for his final season of eligibility. Recruiting News Many analysts believe that Michigan is in the driver’s seat when it comes to the recruitment of the nation’s top running back, Derrick Green. The re-commitment of David Dawson is a good thing for the Wolverines as he is close with the 5-star running back. Dawson is rated by ESPNU as the top offensive guard in the country. Michigan received a commitment from Dawson’s Cass Tech teammate and former Iowa commit, Delano Hill – a 4-star safety. Wisconsin commit Marcus Ball is being recruited to play linebacker at Michigan. He was in town for Michigan’s big recruiting weekend last week. Tennessee commit Dan Skipper visited Michigan last weekend. Skipper is a mammoth 6-foot-10, 295 pound offensive tackle. Don’t be surprised to if he makes a commitment to Michigan in the near future. Leon McQuay III will announce at the Under Armour All-American Game in St. Petersburg, Florida on January 4. 5-star WR Laquon Treadwell has eliminated Michigan and has a final 3 of Ole Miss, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
