Quinton Washington...Thank You

It has been reported that Michigan just received a commitment from 4-star and ESPNU 150 OG recruit Quinton Washington. Depending on what RichRod does with our boy Will Campbell this gives us 3-4 offensive lineman for the class and should improve our overall class ranking. Washington was considering South Carolina, Tennessee, USC, Miami, and Michigan. So as you can see from Washington's school's of choice his abilities seem to be no Fluke. With what we had to do endure with the O-line last season this is like pleasant music to my ear. The only downside is with RichRod's system and everybody coming back it will be hard for Washington to step in and make an immediate impact right away in Ann Arbor. Washington went to Miami for an official this past weekend and I am guessing going to parties at Miami and watching the players snort coke wasn't as selling as a midwinter snowball fight with the Michigan players. It was rumored that his final two came down South Carolina and Michigan, and thankfully for us he made a wise decision. Now not only does this commitment bode well for this year's recruiting class but the recruiting classes to come, this shows RichRods ability to go to the south and steal recruits from their home states. With PA WR Je'Ron Stokes, FL QB/ATH Denard Robinson, and Denard's tag along bff FL/CB Adrian Witty all expected to commit to M things on the recruiting front seem to be looking good for M.  We'll see how tomorrow plays out but things seem to be looking good. Expect a post coming soon after signing day for a full evaluation of this years class and where and how they potentially fit in next year.

Side Note: I just wanted to rant about the Detroit Free Press reporting that for the first time in 20 years the hillbilly school up I-96 was going to have a better recruiting class then M. Washington will be giving us our 5th ESPNU 150 prospect and Stokes and Robinson will give us 7....State = 2... GOOD REPORTING DUDES...
