He made a Labor Day weekend official visit to Virginia Tech, and it's very close between U-M and V-Tech ... but he told GBW that U-M has the slight edge.

He attended the late July U-M Junior Academic Day. 2004 stats: he rushed for 1,246 yards on140 carries and 15 touchdowns.

U-M or Oklahoma), Nebraska (Nov. 26), Clemson and possibly Notre Dame ... U-M leads Louisville (doesn't need an official) with Oklahoma possibly third. McKinney was a full week U-M camper, and worked out at both tight end and defensive lineman. He is Scout.com's #75 prospect, and has been chosen to play in the U.S. Army All-American Game. SR (10-2) stats: 70 tackles/10 sacks/3 blocked FG/4 batted passes/7 FC.

He attended the MSU game for an unofficial visit with his parents. U-M evidently leads for him, with Tennessee 'tight there' as well (he will definitely make official visits to those two), followed by Clemson and Louisville. Brandon did not attend the '04 U-M Camp because of a hamstring injury, but he is a two-time Michigan Camper. He attended a 2004 Spring Practice. He and DL recruit James McKinney are cousins.

He made a summer unofficial visit to U-M on Monday, July 26. Slocum grew up a U-M fan and U-M has offered him. He is TheInsiders #70 prospect.

U-M, Miami (camp, Dec. 3 official visit) and Oklahoma (Oct. 2 official visit) are his final three, with U-M at the top. Also, possibly Alabama (Nov. 19). Note: the U-M and Miami visits have also been sreported reversed, but Cory told us U-M is Dec. 10. He is Scout.com's' #51 South prospect.

Moosman attended the U-M/MSU game for an unofficial visit. David, Dan Doering and Dace Richardson all attended the U-M/Notre Dame game. Wisconsin (camp, Dec. 3 official visit) and Michigan (Dec. 10; camp) both lead slightly over Iowa (Dec. 17; camp), Notre Dame (Jan. 15; camp) and UCLA (late Jan.; he has family in LA).

U-M's interest in Gwaltney was as a FB, which Jason wanted no part of ... so the visit has been dropped and no U-M offer was actually extended.
