    We Got Charles!
    12 September, 2010

    Ann Arbor-- Today coach Jello is ecstatic to announce that quarterback Mark Charles has decided to call Ann Arbor his home for the next 4 years or so. Coach Jello went on to say that he spent more time talking to Charles than he has any other recruit in his short coaching career. When asked why he responded by saying that Charles is exactly the kind of quarterback that Michigan needs. With the defection of Denard Robinson to Army, Michigan was in need of a backup. Charles is clearly much more than that as he is the heir apparent to the throne. He is by far the fastest quarterback in the nation with his 4.48 speed and he has great agility and the way he can break tackles in unrivaled. His speed, agility, and tackle breaking would make him a great running back let alone a QB. His arm is a little weak right now, but there is no doubt that he will be an absolute stud for the maize and blue for years to come.

    Michigan Signs 2 More Giants​

    26 September, 2010

    Ann Arbor-- Today Michigan signed two more huge recruits. The first is 6'5, 312 lb :3stars: guard Brandon Whitehead from Texas. The Wolverines graduate 2 guards this year so Brandon will add some much needed depth. His blocking attributes are very high for someone ranked as low as he was and coach Jello expects him to be able to produce after only a couple of seasons.

    The other recruit signed this week is a huge catch that is expected to make several huge catches for years to come. He is the lone, non-bonus :5stars: allowed the Wolverines Greg Banks. Greg is a 6'5, 183 lb WR from Maryland. Banks is a huge target at 6'5, but on top of this, he is the 2nd fastest player at any position in this year's recruiting class. That size, combined with that height should make for a brutal combination for opposing defenses. He should be able to run by anyone tall enough to jump with him and jump right over anyone fast enough to run with him.

    Banks, who has played basketball all of his life, has only been playing football for the last 2 years. Because of that, even though he's a :5stars: recruit, he's a bit of a project. His skills will need a lot of work, but physically he is a freak of nature. Coach Jello will glady take this rough project and mold him into a standout receiver.

    During the press conference, Coach Jello made this bold prediction. "I would bet that before he leaves, Greg will have earned the right to wear the coveted #1 jersey at Michigan." Clearly, he has very high hopes for this kid.

    Michigan signed their 5th recruit of the classs in JUCO TE(#8) Mike Turner. Coach Jello swears he isn't doing this on purpose, but every recruit signed by Michigan so far this year has stood at least 6'5, including a WR and a QB. Coach Jello seems to be building a team of giants.

    Michigan signed a couple of bonus recruits this year in 4* DE Greg Simmons, who may get some early playing time his 1st year on campus, and 4* FB Brigham Rivera, whom Michigan has been chasing all year long. Simmons comes in rated as the 3rd best DE in the country while Rivera is the 4th best FB.

    Michigan signs 3 more recruits. With a plethora of speed backs, coach Jello went on a search for a power back and ended up with 4* Aaron Phillips from Ohio. Phillips' speed is mediocre, but his ability to run defenders over is high and that's what coach Jello was looking for.

    After losing recruiting battles on several top notch OLB recruits, Michigan had to finally settle on just finding a body to fill the position. They got this in Bobby Ward from Alpena Michigan. At 489, he is easily the lowest ranked recruit that Michigan has signed. That being said, his speed is passable for an OLB and his tackling and pursuit ratings are above average. While he is a project, he has a good foundation on which to build a good football player.

    The 3rd player signed is the 4*, 13th ranked G Jon O'Neill from Utah. Coach Jello has high hopes for Jon as he pursued him over several higher ranked recruits. Jello has stated that he thinks Scout.com got the rankings wrong with Jon and that he's better than his ranking would imply. O'Neill is a very, very solidly built player. He stands 6'0, 324 lbs and has the highest squat score in the entire country and the 7th highest bench press score in the country. He is likely the strongest player that coach Jello has ever recruited.

    Michigan had an outstanding offseason recruiting period. They entered the offseason with only 2 4* and 0 5* spots left, and left the period signing 1 3*, 3 4*, and 1 5* thanks to bonus recruits. They signed a 3* SS and a 4* FS to fill spots vacated by 2 players leaving.

    They signed a 4* OLB to add some much needed depth after graduating 2 OLBs this this year and 2 more next year. They also signed a 4* bonus CB after they failed to sign the #1 DE in the country (which was a need position for the wolverines).

    The coupe of the class, however, was the #1 recruit in the country, DT A. J. Keller who is an absolute monster!
