Michigan QB John O'Korn ranked No. 7 among 2016 quarterback transfers

The Michigan transfer is expected to have a big impact this season. Michigan redshirt junior quarterback John O'Korn has been ranked No. 7 among the Top 30 quarterback transfers for the 2016 season by Steven Lassan of Athlon Sports. The signal callers were ranked by "expected impact." O'Korn transferred from Houston in February of 2015 and ran the scout team for the Maize and Blue last season. "Jim Harbaugh had a lot of success with a transfer quarterback (Jake Rudock) last season," Lassan writes. "Could the same formula work once again for the Wolverines in 2016? O’Korn had a promising...

Friday Michigan Recruiting Roundup: Win Some, Lose Some

More fallout from this past week’s camps, news about offensive tackles and more. James Hudson Visit A Success Michigan’s class is filling up at defensive line, but it seems very likely that this staff will add another name (or two? Somehow?) before it’s all said and done. Hudson has been high on Michigan for a while, and a visit this past weekend didn’t change that. “It went real well,” Hudson told The Michigan Insider ($). “I viewed the campus and met with some of the coaches. I also spent some time with Rashan (Gary) too. (The visit) was a 10 out of 10. I liked just...

NBA Draft 2016 Profile: Michigan Basketball Guard Caris LeVert

Does health outweigh the skillset of what LeVert can bring to an NBA team? The 2016 NBA Draft is nearly upon us with the two-round event set to kick off on Thursday night. Depending on who you talk to, one of this class’ most intriguing prospects is Michigan senior guard Caris LeVert, who was a four-year standout in Ann Arbor but also comes with his fair share of red flags. When healthy, LeVert (6-foot-7, 190 pounds) was an All-Conference player for the Wolverines, but health was an issue the last few seasons. He has had three surgeries on the same foot and finished his last two years at...

Michigan Football Film Room: New Commit 2017 4* DE Aubrey Solomon

Taking a look at what the Georgia native brings to the table. Michigan picked up one of its most surprising commitments in recent memory, as 2017 Top 100 DE (GA) Aubrey Solomon pledged his intent to play for the Wolverines on Saturday. This was one of the most quickly developing stories regarding Michigan recruiting in some time, and definitely reminds me of Nick Eubanks' or Josh Uche's quick decisions after visiting Michigan in January. As far as Solomon goes on the field, Michigan has to be ecstatic about its pickup. Solomon is ranked as the 6th best defensive tackle on 247's Composite...

Tuesday Morning Brews: ESPN Deal In The Books

Hitting the Links Is Rich ESPN, Big Ten Will Stay Together With New Deal One big takeaway is that Fox will probably be broadcasting the Ohio State-Michigan game from now on, which probably means that Gus Johnson and Joel Klatt will be getting the call. Gus, who was born in Detroit, has always been a Michigan fan. Also, it's been a while since I've thrown out a really unpopular opinion, but here goes: Jim Delany deserves a lot of credit here, for giving the Big Ten's athletic departments the resources to thrive and burnish our legacies. The Maryland and Rutgers moves have not been popular,...

Michigan, Michigan State Basketball Will Play Twice in 2016-17

MSU won the only game between the two teams last season. The Big Ten has released its conference basketball schedule for 2016-17, and the big news is the Michigan Wolverines and Michigan State Spartans will play twice next season. The two schools met just once last season — an 89-73 MSU win in Ann Arbor — but are set for a traditional home-and-home next year. Michigan coach John Beilein has made clear he prefers playing the Spartans twice a year, and most fans would likely agree. Dates and times for the games haven't been determined just yet, and there's no guarantee of a two-game...
