Michigans Offseason

Well as you guys all know Michigan just came off there worse season in team history. Michigan ended there season at 3-9 and 2-6 in the Big 10.  It's now time to looks towards the offseason and how well RR can recruit. I have a great feeling he will bring Michigan back to the top as long as he can get in a couple of recruiting classes and find the right players to fit his system. Michigans glaring need was to find a Duel threat QB, so RR can run his spread offense successfully. Michigan has to dueal threat QB's committed for the 09 season.

Both these QB's are great duel threat guys, that will fit RR sytem well. Michigan has 20 very strong verbal commitments right now that should help Michigans team next season.  Michigan right now also could use a RB. With the McGuffie situation being worse and different day by day you can't expect a lot out of him. Here's a solild RB Michigan has recruited.

He's more of an elusive runner and could fit in well with the spread offense. Rivals.com says he runs a 4.5, but I've heard from other sources he is faster then that. A 4.5, not being slow, but not real fast for a 5'10 185 pound RB.

I'm very excited about seeing Micheal Schofield in a Michigan uniform. He's a very big and talented OL that Michigan has a solid verbal agreement with. He stands at 6'7 272 pounds. Looks to be very athlectic for his size and might help Michigan up front as early as next season.

All and all Michigan needs talent. From what I've seen RR hasn't done a bad job of recruiting this offseason. Michigan should be much improved next season, I'm guessing either of the QB's stated above will start next year. Tate Forcier looks to be more college ready and I've heard a rumor that he graduates in December sometime and will have more time to learn the offense, not sure if thats true or not, but would be helpful. Shavodrick Beaver seems to be less college ready as Tate, but could start next season. He's the duel threat QB Michigan has been searching for and has a chance to make an impact next season. Let's just hope Michigan has a better season. Go Blue!
