Email from Mike Keller

We know this is "Saginaw Day," but there have been these persistant whisperings about Michigan commitment <B>Sam Keller</b>. Sam's father Mike emails me - again - about them.

Not all of them reach the message boards, but I can tell you that there have been peristant, even credible, 'decommitment rumors' regarding Michigan commitment Quarterback Sam Keller (Dec. 13 official visit, 2001 Michigan camper, 6-4, 205 lbs., 4.85 in the 40) from Danville, Calif., San Ramon Valley.

The rumors have Sam decommitting to Cal. Sam's quarterback tutor, Roger Theder, is the former head coach there.

I emailed Sam's father Mike about this shortly after the CaliFlorida All-Star game -- where they probably got their start, because Sam looked great. At the time Mike emailed back and reassured me.

However, since then the rumors have gotten more, not less, heated. So I emailed father-Mike again. Here is his response -- maybe a public printing will help the rumors subside.

"Tom. Absolutely no truth to Sam decommitting. I don't know what to tell you about Cal ... I know they made a run at him but it was never going to be successful. Cal just isn't where Sam wants to be nor will it ever ... trust me."
