Where Does U-M Turn For a Quarterback Recruit?

The sands are shifting rapidly for Michigan's quarterback recruiting.

Calif. quarterback Mark Sanchez committed Saturday to USC (see WeAreSC.com for details).

Sanchez's decision makes it all the more likely that U-M's top quarterback recruit, Ohioan Rob Schoenhoft, will commit to OSU this coming week.

And to top things off, top instate quarterback Evan Sharpley committed to Notre Dame Saturday night (see IrishEyes.com for details).

What does this mean for U-M's quarterback recruiting? We are not sure of course; the next top prospect will emerge over the next several days. But here's a possibility, a U-M Camper this past June.

Quarterback Mike Greco (2-day Mon./Tues. '04 U-M Camper, 6-3, 200 lbs., 4.4 in the 40) from Ft. Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons.

The wiry left-handed signal-caller had amazing stats at this past April's Miami NIKE Camp: 6-3, 200 lbs., a 4.37 sec. 40, a 3.9 sec. shuttle, a 33 inch vertical, and 16 bench press reps of 185 lbs.

As of last report, in June prior to the U-M Camp, he listed NC-State, Florida State and Miami, plus Auburn (offer), and Michigan. He also had an offer from Iowa. And he'd indicated that he'd be patient and see who eventually offered him.

As a junior Greco, who plays in a running-based offense, threw for 820 yards, ran for 350, and scored 11 touchdowns.
