Michigan Football picked up a major 2015 commitment on Saturday when 5-star WR George Campbell committed to play for the Wolverines. On Monday, 4-star 2015 running back Damien Harris committed to play for Michigan. Harris is ranked #20 overall by ESPN.
The 5-foot-11, 195 pound Harris, hails from Berea, Kentucky and gives Brady Hoke another highly skilled offensive weapon. Here’s an excerpt of his scouting report on ESPN.
Strong, balanced runner with quick feet and well-rounded skill-set. Flashes good top-end speed and upper and lower body strength. Displays good vision finding the hole and the ability to get through tight creases for big gainers. Possesses the lateral stretch ability and edge speed to get outside and move the chains. …
Harris made the announcement on Twitter and bolsters what is starting off to be another tremendous recruiting class for the Wolverines.
I have decided to officially commit to The University of Michigan!!!!! #GOBLUE #MichiganDifference #136

“In a Word”…proof…Michigan hasn’t had a legit WR threat since before RichRod was in Ann Arbor…and to be honest…they still don’t. That may only last one more year though. They now have a passer (and by passer I mean not Denard...

As you know, successful teams must effectively engage their fans to drive both revenue and performance. Keeping this in mind, TicketCity created an algorithm (measuring social media and ticket data) to determine which college football teams across all conferences have the most engaged fan bases. Michigan is #1 most engaged fan base in college football. Michigan’s Coach Brady Hoke...
If you want to be elite, you have to beat the teams you're not
supposed to beat. You have to win the games on the road against better
opponents in hostile environments. The 2012 season saw plenty of those,

widely-held claim after the 2011 season that Michigan was "back", they needed to do
the things great...
On September 6th, Michigan will host Notre Dame for probably the final time, for at least a while. The event is sure to draw the same if not more attention than the previous "Under the Lights" matchup in 2011 due to the fact that Notre Dame just played for the BCS National Title, and the last two primetime matchups have provided some thrilling games for both schools.
The Michigan Wolverines released the new Under the Lights logo for their game this September against Notre Dame. It will be the second ever night game at the Big House, and it will be the last time that Notre Dame comes to Ann Arbor for quite some time. The logo looks great and I’m excited to see if this game will produce the same exciting results it did the first time around...
While it is a very long time until Damien Harris may see the field in Ann Arbor, the 2015 running back from Berea, Kentucky (Madison Southern) committed to the Michigan Wolverines over offers from Florida, Kentucky, and others. While Kentucky never made it into the picture until Mark Stoops came to town, the new Kentucky staff was hoping to land this great in-state talent. Since...
Madison Southern (Ky.) class of 2015 running back Damien Harris had nearly his pick of the litter when it came to schools, but he went with his childhood favorite today, choosing the Michigan Wolverines. He talks about his decision here.
