(these ARE the guys coming, barring flight problems, etc. ... we've confirmed them all).

December 2nd: the "O-Line Weekend"

-- **NEW ADDITION** We have just confirmed that on his way to the airport is:
-- Steve Schilling OL 6'4 290 Bellevue Washington. Scout.com's #4 prospect. Michigan (Dec. 2), USC (Dec. 16), Cal (Dec. 9) and Washington (Jan.) are his top 4. He visited Michigan May 22-23, and Lloyd Carr visited the school in the winter of 2004/05.

-- Daron Rose OL 6'5 290 5.00 Tampa Jefferson Florida. Scout.com's #42 Southeast prospect. Rose and U-M have moved up his Michigan visit to this weekend, Dec. 2nd. His other scheduled visits: Notre Dame (Nov. 5 - cancelled), Tennessee (Jan. 14), FSU (Jan. 17), Florida (Jan.) ... those four visits are for sure, and if he takes a 5th it'll be to LSU.

-- Perry Dorrestein OT 6'7 280 5.30 (Scout Combine stats) Plainfield Central Illinois. Scout.com's #100 Midwest prospect was an unofficial visitor to the PSU game where he was offered a scholarship. His official visits: Nebraska (Oct. 28 visit completed), U-M (Dec. 2), Northwestern (Dec. 9). He may also visit Duke. He will make his decision before Christmas. He was an '05 U-M Camper.

-- Greg Banks 6'2 260 5.2 Denver Montebello. This visit was set for Nov. 18, then Dec. 2, then moved to Dec. 9 with Colorado sneaking into the Dec. 2 slot ... and now it's finally set, tickets sent, for this weekend, Dec. 2. He also did visit Colorado (the Nov. 24 weekend -- the Buffs are perhaps U-M's main competition. He may also visit UCLA, Cal, Notre Dame. He is Scout.com's #14 Midlands prospect. He will graduate in December and enroll in college in January, so whatever official visits he does take have to be made soon -- and thus the urgency by schools to get him in ASAP.

**NEW** visit moved to Dec. 9 weekend:
-- FB/LB Obi Ezeh (6-1, 220, 4.6) from Grand Rapids, Mich., Catholic Central. The 3-time U-M camper makes his U-M official visit Dec. 9. He has a U-M offer, and has grown up a U-M fan. He made an unofficial visit for the PSU game, and may commit in November. He has scheduled official visits to U-M and WMU (Dec. 2 now?). He also has offers from EMU and Indiana.

-- Almost, not quite: set up U-M visit this week, dropped it last night:
-- Reshad Jones Safety 6'2 185 4.50 Atlanta Booker T. Washington Georgia.

And the Verbal-Commitment Visitors

-- Michigan Commitment #1: (3) Brandon Graham LB 6'1 235 4.40 Detroit Crockett Michigan. Scout.com's #12 prospect. His official U-M visit is Dec. 2nd. And he may visit PSU on Jan. 14 -- he has it scheduled (click HERE for the story ... is it a threat to U-M? ... nah ... will he visit there? nah ...). From the same program as Penn State's' Edward Johnson and Michigan's John Thompson, Graham is at another level. He is the top prospect in Michigan and one of the nation's elite linebackers. He committed to Michigan in February 2005. Graham has a 3.8 grade-point average.

-- Michigan Commitment #2: (6) Justin Boren OL 6'3 319 5.20 Pickerington North Ohio. Scout.com's #28 prospect. Dec. 2 official visit. Justin's father, Mike, was a starting linebacker at Michigan in the 1980's. Justin is much bigger than his dad. One of the nation's elite OL's. After OSU got an early lead for him, U-M closed the gap starting with the Feb. 20 Junior Day - and Justin committed to U-M on May 13.

-- Michigan Commitment #5: (30) Cobrani Mixon LB 6'2 220 4.60 Cincinnati Colerain Ohio. Dec. 2 official visit. Scout.com's #84 prospect committed to U-M on July 27. He was a force in this past June's U-M Camp. He wore a knee brace in the camp since he suffered an ACL injury as a junior although he toughed it out and returned to the field late in the season to end up with 100 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and 6 sacks. He had postseason surgery. He also attended U-M's winter Junior day.

-- Michigan commitment #3: (92) Quintin Patilla LB/RB/WR 6'2 1/2 210 4.65 Flint Carman-Ainsworth Michigan. Dec. 2 official visit. Scout.com's #78 Midwest prospect. The underrated Patilla was a force at OLB at the Michigan Camp, fast and hard-hitting. He was offered a few days after the camp ended, and immediately committed.
