How Will it Finish?: Michigan Commits Break Down How 2016’s Class May End

Rumors have been swirling from San Antonio during the week of practice leading up to the Army All American Game Saturday. The rumors have circled around buzz of two “silent commits” playing in the game.

MGoFish reached out to current Michigan commits and it was confirmed that nothing was set in stone, but there is a definite feeling of promise. Speaking of silent, Erik Swenson has been very silent for someone who has been committed since November of 2013. He doesn’t say a whole lot so when he does, it means more.

“(Rashan) Gary and (Lavert) Hill because I think they both may be silent commits already,” Swenson said.

Rashad Weaver paralleled what Swenson said regarding Gary and Hill’s likelihood of coming to Michigan.

“I see Rashan Gary and (Lavert) Hill coming for sure. Nothing in particular, a feeling they both seem to love the school,” Weaver said.

Sir Patrick Scott on the other hand, is not aware of silent commits, but strongly believes that Michigan will finish the 2016 class strong.

“I think we’ll finish the class up strong. I think we have a couple of guys who have already made up their mind no coming to Michigan like David Long, Rashan Gary, and possibly Lavert Hill,” Scott said.

The word on the street is that Gary is favoring Michigan. He has visits to USC and Clemson coming in January so they will be two schools to watch along with the other rumored top school, Ole Miss.

Long is likely down to Michigan and Washington, but it is difficult to get an accurate read on what he’s thinking. Hill has been favoring Michigan for a while, with Michigan State in second, but his Clemson offer earlier this week threw a wrench into those plans. He is looking to set up an official visit to Clemson this month to get a feel for what they have to offer. But until Hill visits, Michigan is the favorite.
