The visitors saw a decent show as Michigan battled back against Wisconsin but came up short. However, the atmosphere in the stadium was great during the comeback bid, which is always to show off to the recruits.
Besides the game, a lot has happened this month, including:
  • 2016 OT Liam Eichenburg was offered on his Wisconsin game visit
    • Looks like a Michigan-O$U battle, but I really like the Wolverines\’ chances.
  • 2017 OL Josh Myers was also offered on his Wisconsin game visit
    • Looks like a Michigan-Kentucky battle early on, he\’s a Wildcat legacy.
  • 2016 OT Thiyo Lukusa will visit Ann Arbor twice
    • Very possible commitment
  • 2015 RB Mike Weber visited twice in three weeks and is likely to be back next week
    • Michigan\’s chances look really good since Nussmeier has been hired
  • 2015 DT Hjalte Froholdt may be back on the radar
    • His main recruiter, d-line coach and defensive coordinator at Arkansas have all left the program. Michigan may have a great chance with him, again.
