Michigan Football Recruiting Update
Michigan recently picked up commitment #23 when Da’Mario Jones (Westland, Michigan) pledged. He is a 3-star receiver with good size (6-2, 185) and speed (4.4). He is the third receiver to join the 2013 class (Jaron Dukes, Csont’e York). Michigan continues to recruit 4-star WR Laquon Treadwell.
Cornerback Gareon Conley seems intent on taking visits to Oregon and Ohio State. This could result in him losing his scholarship offer to Michigan. I think his situation is a little different than David Dawson’s though.
Leon McQuay III: The 5-star safety will take his official visit to Michigan for the Northwestern game. He has already visited Vanderbilt and Oregon and is planning a trip to Florida State.
Derrick Green: Michigan is in good position with the 5-star running back. He is a sledge hammer of a runner and would be perfect fit in Ann Arbor. His final schools are Michigan, Auburn, Tennessee and he has added Miami to his list.
Laquon Treadwell: He is one of the elite WRs in the 2013 class. The Wolverines have long been a favorite of his and he will be taking an official visit to Michigan. According to recent reports, Treadwell no longer has Michigan as his frontrunner. Hopefully they can get him on campus for an official visit.
If Michigan is looking for an offensive linemen to replace Dawson, they might offer David Knevel (Brantford, Ontario).
Michigan has picked up commitments from two class of 2014 recruits.
Michael Ferns (Saint Clairsville, Ohio): Ferns is one of the premiere linebackers in the 2014 class and possibly the top player in the state of Ohio.
Denzel Ward (Chicago, Illinois): The 6-foot-9, 285 pound Ward is an offensive lineman with big potential.
BEST OF MAXIM

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Denard Robinson has become the elephant in Brady Hoke's room.
There have been times in Hoke's two seasons at Michigan where he couldn't stop talking about his multi-talented quarterback, but that has changed ever since Robinson left the Nebraska game with a nerve problem in his throwing elbow.
The Wolverines lost that game as backup Russell Bellomy...
With 27 fateful seconds left on the clock and Michigan Football trailing Northwestern 31-28, Devin Gardner took a snap from the Michigan 38 yard line. He dropped back and heaved a long pass to Roy Roundtree, who made a circus catch at the Northwestern 9 yard line to set up a game-tying field goal. Michigan of course went on to win the game in overtime by a final score of 38-31
Yes, I know I’ve been MIA for a week. I can explain—just first, agree not to judge me. It started off very innocently. I opened up the Little Brown Jug to celebrate last week after the Michigan victory over Minnesota. I just took one swig—I swear. My stomach must have been emptier than I thought—you know gophers aren’t as meaty as they used to be.
The next thing...
Shake it up.

Giving up 31 points in one game isn’t something that pleases Brady Hoke and the Michigan coaching staff. Northwestern was able to attack the Wolverines on the perimeter. But a great defensive call late solidified the 38-31 overtime win.
Michigan wide receiver Roy Roundtree has bounced back from a slow start this season.
Roundtree has 203 yards receiving in his last two games to surpass his production from the first eight games of the year.
He leaped to tip and catch a 53-yard pass Saturday that set a field goal with 2 seconds left to extend a game the Wolverines won 38-31 in overtime over Northwestern.
Michigan senior right guard Patrick Omameh has been through all of the ups and downs of the past five years as a Wolverine. Omameh reflects on his approach to his final year, Denard Robinson's attitude in recent weeks, and what will be going through his mind Saturday.
