Michigan's SEVEN commitments at the US Army All-American Game:
Garrett Rivas, Clayton Richard, Ryan Mundy, Prescott Burgess, Leon Hall, Will Paul, and Anton Campbell.
For the record, the staff at GoBlueWolverine was never worried. Our premium subscribers can attest to this fact. We talked to Prescott on Friday, and asked him about his timetable. His response was:
"I might decide soon. I've been thinking about announcing it down here during the game."
When we asked if he had a leader, he replied:
"Yeah ... it's Michigan."
Shortly after that, we were talking to Brady Quinn and Clayton Richard, who informed us:
"Did you hear about Prescott? He's coming to Michigan."
Later that day, Will Paul and family passed on the same information. And that night, when we gathered all of the Michigan commitments for a group photo, Burgess hopped right into the middle of the group (seen above). He informed us that he had scheduled his announcement, but that he needed to call his mother to let her know about his decision.
When we spoke to Burgess yesterday (Saturday), he confirmed that he had spoken with his mother, and that he still planned to announce for Michigan. Given the wealth of information that we had accumulated, we were confident of his decision. And we tried to pass on as much as possible on our premium board.
Obviously, this was a great pickup for Michigan. Burgess is the Wolverines 14th commitment (counting Quinton McCoy), and most highly rated player to date. We'll work to get further quotes from Burgess on his decision.
Editorial note: Never trust a story that doesn't have a direct quote from the source. There have been rumors spreading like wild fire for the last few days, and even a televised news report that stated Burgess had committed to Ohio State. However, none of these reports would name Burgess as a source.
