Jan. 9 Rec. Weekend: A Commitment (Or Two)?

Tim Jamison

This coming January 9th recruiting weekend should be Michigan's last. According to our official count, either four or five recruits are coming in. One of them was an early commitment; another is expected to commit at the visit -- unless he already has!

1. - LB Johnny Thompson (Jan. 9 Michigan official visit, 2003 U-M Camper, 6-3, 210 lbs.) from Detroit Crockett. John has leaning to Michigan since he talked to us in December, and he may very likely commit at the visit -- in fact, it's possible that he is already committed but just hasn't talked to reporters about it yet!
Other official visits: Wisconsin Dec. 5, possibly OSU.
U-M unofficial visits: OSU and Notre Dame games.

2. - DE Tim Jamison (Jan. 9 Michigan official visit, 6-3, 225 lbs., 2.25 GPA, Dec. ACT) from Harvey, Ill, Thornton. For the season he reportedly recorded 100 tackles and 20 sacks, and he was one of the top three performers in the US Army All Star Game. Wisconsin leads going into his U-M visit, but his family likes Michigan a lot! He is vastly underrated as TheInsiders #99 Big Ten area prospect.
Other official visits: Wisconsin Dec. 5, MSU Jan. 16.
U-M unofficial visits: OSU game.

3. - OT Kyle Mitchum (Jan. 9 Michigan official visit, 2003 U-M Camper, 6-5, 270 lbs., 340 lb. bench press, 5.0 in the 40, 2.9 GPA) from Erie, Pa., McDowell. Despite rumors to the contrary, Kyle insisted to us at the US Army Game that he is not a 'silent commitment' to Michigan. We'll see -- at any rate the Wolverines have a good shot. He is TheInsiders' #30 prospect.
Other official visits: Iowa (Oct.), OSU Dec. 12, possibly West Virginia.
U-M unofficial visits: OSU game.

4. - Michigan commitment #10: OL Jeremy Ciulla (Dec. 5 official visit postponed to Jan. 5, 6-5 1/2, 279 lbs., 5.0 in the 40, 325 lb. bench press, 3.6 GPA/1100 SAT) from Kennesaw Mountain, Ga. He is TheInsiders' #61 prospect.

Possible visit #5. - TE Kellen Freeman-Davis (possible Jan. 9 Michigan official visit, 2003 U-M Camper, 6-6, 220 lbs., 4.6 in the 40) from Adrian, Mich. He may visit Notre Dame this weekend instead of U-M. He is TheInsiders #94 Big Ten area prospect.
Other official visits: MSU Nov. 22, Northwestern Dec. 19.
U-M unofficial visits: Notre Dame and CMU games.
