It's a slow, boring week for Michigan Football since the bye week is in store, a major bummer especially after a loss. So I figured I would try and spice it up a little for ya with a recruiting update. So jump in, have at it, getcha some, check it out, get your fix...you get the point.
TE Jake Butt was the latest to receive his Army All-American Jersey. Congrats to the talented big man.

WR LaQuon Treadwell is creating more buzz and at this point, who knows what this kid is thinking when it comes to his recruitment; He is definitely enjoying the process, no doubt about that. See what Mike Farrell of Rivals.com had to say about some interesting visits in Treadwell's future:
Thank goodness for Laquon Treadwell from Crete (Ill.) Monee or else 2013 would be quite boring. In years past, there have been many completely unpredictable prospects that have added and switched schools of interest weekly but this year not so much. Treadwell is certainly interesting to follow. Now Texas is in the mix, Missouri will get an official and Florida, Michigan, Ole Miss, Auburn, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State remain in the picture. Don't be surprised if a few more schools jump on this list and some drop off, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see Treadwell take this decision all the way to NSD. I still have a gut feeling that Michigan will be his choice, but he's certainly enjoying the process.I'm not alone in my thinking huh? You gotta like the fact that Farrell still says Michigan is the team to beat, but the panic meter may be slowing getting higher and higher the longer and longer he waits to make his decision.
A newly released highlight video on prospect RB Derrick Green, who was visited by RB's coach Fred Jackson on Tues., has surfaced on YouTube and you will definitely want to check this out; especially the block at 1:36 and Green applying the truck stick at 2:25:
S Leon McQuay III may have been a name that you haven't heard in a while since he took Michigan out of his top 3 after they told the young superstar that there was no room for him. Well seems that Michigan is back in the picture. Tremendous broke the news that McQuay has set an official visit to AA for the Northwestern game and will be taking in the campus the entire weekend. Great news for us wolverine Recruitaholics.
Some big, big offers went out this week to some big time prospects. The first, you may remember from The Opening (yes, I'm bringing it up again) in DB Quin Blanding who performed very well against a lot of top talent a year ahead of him (!!!). His sophomore highlights are below
Another, was DT Andrew Brown. Check him out in beast mode:
Both these cats are/will be consensus 5-stars and reside in Virginia.
Those two over shadow the third offer to go out in 4-star PA DB Montae Nicholson, which says a lot because Nicholson is very, very talented!
OL Jamarco Jones went to twitter saying that its a possibility he could make it to the Michigan-Ohio (St.) game (even though it's in Columbus, still doesn't hurt) and also had this to say about when he may be up to AA:
@logantillman I was gonna go to the one vs Illinois but now its probably gonna be for the michigan state game

As you can see, Tully-Tillman is using his inner Shane Morris trying to recruit future prospects. Jones seems to receive a new offer every week and pulling him in would be a big boost (or start) for the '14 OL class.
'14 4-star QB Will Grier
'14 4-star WR Derek Kief
'14 4-star DL Malik McDowell
'14 4-star RB Christian McCaffrey
'14 3-star DB Troy Vincent, Jr.
'14 5-star OL Braden Smith
'14 MI LB Deon Drake committed to Little Brother last week. Drake didn't hold a Michigan offer, and with the limited amount of LB spots left for this class (only expected to take 2 and Ferns already took up one), it's not a surprise to see him go elsewhere.
