- Scheduled official visit: All-American wide receiver Jayson Swain (Alabama Nike stats: 6-2, 205 lbs., 4.45 in the 40, 34-inch vertical jump, 2.8 GPA/15 ACT) from Huntsville, Alabama, Grissom. Tennessee and Alabama are his favorites, but Michigan and Georgia are close. He is TheInsiders' #65 prospect.

- Scheduled official visit: All-American defensive back/‘athlete' Ryan Mundy (PSU Nike stats: 6-2, 200 lbs., 16 reps of 185 lbs.; 4.45 in the 40, 10.7 100 meters, 290-lb. bench press, 2.7 GPA/830 SAT in 2001) from Pittsburgh, Penn., Woodland Hills (teammate of Steve Breaston). He has an official Michigan visit scheduled for the Nov. 2 MSU game, and Michigan is his slight leader. He has a Dec. 13 visit set to Virginia, and Pitt is a strong possibility as well. He is a member of Tom Lemming's Sept. Top 100.

- Scheduled official visit: All-American defensive back Paul Oliver (6-0, 180 lbs., 4.42 in the 40) from Kennesaw, Georgia, Harrison. He is TheInsiders' #23 prospect. He is also verbally committed to Georgia - but told yours truly in mid-Oct. that he nevertheless plans to visit U-M.

- Planned unofficial visit: Michigan commitment quarterback Sam Keller (2001 Michigan camper, 6-4, 205 lbs., 4.85 in the 40) from Danville, Calif., San Ramon Valley. He is TheInsiders' #26 quarterback.
