Southaven Miss. DB Greg Hines

Michigan will lose their big-time Mississippi DB, Jeremy LeSueur, after this season. Will they add another one to the 03/04, this time a top safety?

I talked Thurs. afternoon to top safety prospect Greg Hines (Aub. Nike stats: 6-1, 200 lbs., … 4.5 in the 40) from Southaven, Miss. Hines is the teammate of OG Josh Winchell, interviewed earlier this week.

Please update us on your U-M recruiting.

"Coach Jackson visited Southaven in May. He watched my film, then he called me up and offered me a scholarship. I've been getting a lot of mail from him."

Who else has offered you?

"Auburn, Vanderbilt, LSU, Southern Miss.., ... there are others too."

What is it that appeals to you about Michigan?

"I've been watching them play for a long time -- I like their style of play."

Do you have a list of favorites?

"Auburn, Michigan and Vanderbilt. I definitely plan to take an official visit to Michigan."

Other than the Auburn NikeCamp, have you attended any other camps?

"I'm going to the Auburn Camp tomorrow (Friday)."

I talked to Hines at the Auburn Nike Camp, where he caught my eye (without knowing who he was) with his size and on-field 'meanness'. Greg ran a 4.6 at the camp, but he ran his heats after the rain that day had started -- it was a very good time on a slippery grass field. Right after he finished the lightning started and the camp was cancalled -- Greg didn't even get his picture taken!
