Trottwood Calvary to the get-to-25-rescue?

Trottwood to the get-to-25-rescue? With Brandon Moore already in the fold and Mike Shaw thinking harder and harder about U-M as well, two more recruits from the Dayton-area school are on their way to A2 now (early AM). Dave Berk, Scout.com's Ohio Recruiting analyst, called Trotwood-Madison Friday night and gives GoBlueWolverine's fans the scoop.

Dave Berk:

Here is the deal guys, I made the call. Roy Roundtree who is a WR and a Purdue commitment (committed back in late May), and Domonick Britt a QB who was a Cincinnati commitment (committed in early June, decommitted in mid-Dec.), are head to U-M after tonight's (Friday's) Trotwood basketball game. They will be leaving the Dayton area at 6:00 a.m. for U-M on Saturday.


Britt (6-5, 195, 4.65) is a long lanky athletic quarterback with a nice arm and the ability to move out of the pocket. He is not Pat White, he's more of a pre-Texas Vince Young who will get bigger, stronger and faster at the next level. (Here is Britt's Player Page.)


Roundtree (6-2, 190, 4.5) may not be the fastest wide receiver but he's got some of the greatest hands I've seen over the past several years. He also is only going to get better. (Here is Roundtree's Player Page.)

Both players are very open to looking at what Michigan has to offer.

It is also no secret that many of the Trotwood guys would love to have the chance to remain teammates at the college level. This also means Michael Shaw (Jan. 18 U-M visitor, PSU soft-commit) who I feel at this time is really looking hard at U-M. I also feel as stated that U-M commit Brandon Moore (Jan. 18 visitor as well) is going to remain with U-M.

Britt is not a project, he's a dual-threat quarterback with much upside. He's only really been taking football serious for the past two years and this past year was his first with a true quarterback coach. From the spring till the end of the summer no quarterback had more of a change than Britt.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

GoBlueWolverine adds:

Neither Britt nor Roundtree is coming to A2 with an offer in hand. In fact, U-M had earlier decided "no" on Britt, but part of the issue was that he wasn't academically qualified ... but now Britt is qualified.

Here are some good quality Britt (#2) and Roundtree (#12) highlights
