Lemming Fills Us In On Ill. Kids

The top Illinois kids were not at the Iowa Nike Camp Sunday -- they were all at Tom Lemming's photo shoot at Wrigley Field in Chicago. But no problem -- we just called Lemming Sunday noon while he was at Wrigley and he filled us in!<br><br> Lemming on Dan, Dace and David!<br> (and Andy and Jake)

Tom Lemming:

"Every one of the top 30 Illinois prospects are here (this is Sunday noon-osh), and just about all of the top 15 Wisconsin kids."

We asked Tom what Michigan's top Ill. recruits said to him today (again, "today" means Sunday).

- Regarding Offensive tackle Dan Doering (US Army Combine stats: 6-5 1/2, 270 lbs., 5.29 in the 40, 16 bench press reps.) from Barrington, Ill.
Lemming: "I go to the same church as the Doerings and so I talk to Dan and his father pretty much every week. Based on what they tell me, I believe that Dan will make his official visits to Iowa, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Michigan. I don't think he'll go to any summer camps."

Regarding - Offensive tackle Dace Richardson (6-8, 305 lbs., 5.2 in the 40) from Wheaton, Ill., South, and his teammate Tight end Anthony Moeaki (Probably '04 U-M Camper, 6-4, 255 lbs., 4.8 in the 40, 3.5 GPA).
Lemming: "According to what he told me, I think Dace will come to the Michigan Camp for a day, and Moeaki as well. They will go in order to meet with Lloyd Carr and get their official offer presentations from Michigan."

- Offensive lineman David Moosman (6-4, 260 lbs., 5.3 in the 40, 360 lb. bench press, 2.9 GPA) from Libertyville, Ill. (in the N.Chic. suburbs).
Lemming: "You know, not everyone agrees on Moosman. Some schools love him, including Michigan, and others don't. He's about 6-4, 265 lbs., so he's not that big -- but he's a top wrestler and the schools that really like him like that part about him. He's going to the Michigan Camp."

And finally:

"Jake Christianson (QB, 6-0, 205 lbs., 4.6 in the 40 from Lockport Township, Ill.) left here early to go down your way (we talked to Lemming from the Iowa Nike Camp) to make the Elite 11 Camp tryouts. I think his dad is already down there as one of the coaches (true, Mr. Christianson was one of the coaches during the tryout)."
