The Cissoko File

New members may have missed GoBlueWolverine's exclusive in-depth coverage of the first commitment in Michigan's 2008 class and old members may have forgotten it. In this feature, recap Boubacar Cissoko's rapid rise up the recruiting charts; from his breakout performance at last spring's Nike camp to his MVP showing at the Army National Junior Combine. ***Exclusive video highlights included***

Here's what's National Recruiting Analysts had to say about Cissoko after his MVP performance at the Army National Junior Combine in San Antonio Texas:

"Boubacar Cissoko was a unanimous choice as the overall MVP of the combine. The talented cornerback was so tough in press coverage that the coaches asked him to back off so the receivers would have a chance to make a play. Cissoko looked like he was physically capable of playing this year's All-American Bowl. It's easy to see why he already holds a handful of offers." - Staff

"Boubacar Cissoko of Cass Tech in Detroit, Michigan had everything locked down except the building. The overall MVP of the combine was unbeatable in press coverage, so much so he was asked by coaches to give a cushion to the receivers to make things a little more competitive. Cissoko was even more impressive in person than he is on film. The way things stand currently, he may be the top cornerback in the Midwest." - Midwest analyst Bob Lichtenfels
