1. Yes, Clayton Richard tentatively plans to announce his decision at a press conference Monday. Mr. Richard told us this immediately as Coach Carr was walking out of their home early Tuesday afternoon. But Mr. Richard asked me to wait until today to print it. We told him we certainly would -- but that no one else in the press would wait!
2. Coaches Carr and Jackson were in Jayson Swain's home last night. Swain returns to Tennessee for his official visit this weekend. It's pretty much Michigan and Tennessee for him -- and he comes back up to Michigan right after the US Army Game in early January.
3. Coach Hoke was at Leon Hall's school yesterday morning, then went up to LA to visit WR Steve Smith. And today (Thurs.) he goes into Lynell Hamilton's home.
4. Coach Loeffler visited the Glenville duo last night.
Note: a head coach can only make one in-home (or in-school) visit to a recruit; assistants can make up to seven(!) (although the Michigan coaches generally only make 2-3).
