Since my last article on the subject, there have been some changes in the All-American Rosters, so without further ado...


U.S. Army All-American Bowl

UM Commits:

  • Cullen Christian - CB, Pittsburgh, PA
  • Will Hagerup - P/K, Whitefish Bay, WI

UM Prospects:

  • Sean Parker - S, Harbor City, CA (USC, Michigan, Cal)
  • Latwan Anderson - S, Cleveland, OH (Ohio St, UMiami, UNC, Michigan, West Virginia, Michigan St)*

*At this point I would consider Latwan Anderson a stretch.


UnderArmour High School All-American Game

UM Commits:

  • Devin Gardner - QB, Detroit, MI
  • Marvin Robinson - S/LB, Eagle Lake, FL*

UM Prospects:

  • Kenny Shaw - SR/WR, Orlando, FL (Florida St, Michigan, Tennessee, South Carolina)
  • Torrian Wilson - OL, Miami, FL (Michigan, Tennessee, USF)

*Marvin Robinson has been offered to play in the Under-Armor All American Game; however, he remains undecided as it could interfere with his plans to enroll early this January.


Other Michigan & College Football News

  • Former UM linebacker Coach Jay Hopson (2008-2009) is headed to Memphis to be their new Defensive Coordinator
  • USC RB Joe McKnight may play in the Emerald Bowl after all; he's stayed in Southern California the past few days because of an NCAA investigation into possible violations regarding his girlfriend's 2006 Land Rover, which was allegedly given to her by a Santa Monica businessman.
  • Michigan has moved from the 19th ranked recruiting class to the 13th ranked recruiting class with the addition of Pahokee DL Richard Ash and Millersville LB Josh Furman.
