QB's Abound

Apparently, you can't swing a dead cat in Ann Arbor without hitting a top 10 QB prospect.

After just 7 months or so on the job, Rich Rodriguez has brought in 4 of the best QBs in the nation for visits. And two of them have verbally committed. One, of course...Pryor, is heading to tOSU for his freshman year this upcoming season. But for 2009, things look much brighter.

We all know about Kevin Newsome. According to reports, he may be on the fence. He's verbally committed to Michigan for 09, but he's still being actively recruited by VA Tech and Penn State.

Also, Michigan's second verbal, Shavodrick Beaver from Wichita Falls, TX came just 5 days after Newsome's. Both are top 8 QB prospects.

However, a couple names have been tossed in recently as well. 4-star recruit Tate Forcier, younger brother of former Michigan QB Jason, is well in the mix. He attended Michigan's camp this summer and word is his parents are really high on Rodriguez.

But also adding to the mix is the 6th ranked dual-threat QB in the country (rivals.com), Eugene Smith from Miramar, FL. He was just recently added to the Elite 11 QB camp list in California later this summer. He will take a visit to Ann Arbor in the near future...probably during the season.

On a side note, NCAA Football 09 is officially released today. Unfortunately, I will not be buying this year's installment. They no longer make the game for my aging but still worthwhile Xbox, and the version coming out for the Wii looks just terrible. So maybe next year the Xbox gods will give me a 360, but until then, I'm stuck with my 08 version.

Also, happy 1 year birthday to Maize & Blue Nation! Last July 12 was my first post. We started out under a whole different name, "Scot Loeffler's All-Stars", but quickly realized midway through the season that Scot may not be around too much longer, and we needed to search out a new name. Either way, it's been a fun year and hopefully there will be many more.

Thanks for reading!
