|MICHIGAN FOOTBALL VERBAL COMMITMENTS AS OF SEPTEMBER 1, 2014|
CHRIS CLARK - TAKING OTHER VISITS. Clark has not yet publicly de-committed, but he has three trips scheduled to other schools in November (North Carolina, Texas, and Southern California). He holds an MSU offer, along with offers from 45 other schools.
DARIAN ROSEBORO - GONE. Roseboro politely de-committed after Minnesota beat UM. He holds 22 other offers, and after sifting through them, he re-selected a school closer to his home (North Carolina State) on October 11.
GARRETT TAYLOR - GONE. Taylor dropped out after MSU beat UM, choosing to review his other 32 offers. He has trips scheduled to Ohio State and Penn State, and he does hold an offer from MSU.
BRIAN COLE - TAKING OTHER VISITS. Cole visited Wisconsin last month. From Saginaw, he holds an MSU offer, along with offers from eight other schools.
MIKE WEBER - TAKING OTHER VISITS. From Detroit Cass Tech, Weber has not publicly wavered from his UM commitment. However, he said last month that he will be "exploring his options". Current reports indicate he will visit Ohio State, Miami, and Southern California. He holds an MSU offer, and he's planning an official visit to East Lansing as well. He says he's unsure where he will take his fifth official visit, meaning that Michigan is apparently his "safety school". Weber has about a dozen total offers.
TYREE KINNEL - TAKING OTHER VISITS. From Ohio, Weber has not publicly wavered from his UM commitment, claiming he is "still a UM commit", but he is at West Virginia this weekend for a look-and-see. He holds an MSU offer, along with five other offers.
DARREN KIRKLAND, Jr. - GONE. Kirkland was at Ole Miss this weekend and has scheduled a trip to Oklahoma next weekend. He also has trips planned to Texas, Oregon, and Southern California. He holds 27 total scholarship offers. Kirkland de-committed 12 days after the Spartans beat the Wolverines. (MSU did not offer him.)
ALEX MALZONE - Malzone committed to UM in May, and has not wavered. Most observers consider him to be solid to Michigan. He has a dozen total offers. (MSU did not offer him.)
GRANT NEWSOME - Newsome committed to UM in June, and has not wavered. However, he has said that if Brady Hoke was fired, he would have to reconsider the decision. MSU has offered him, along with 30 other schools.
JON RUNYAN, Jr. - As a "legacy recruit", Runyan is considered by most observers to be the most solid UM commitment. He has stated so publicly. He had one offer to play college football (from Michigan).
ANDREW DAVID - No word from David either way. He had one offer to play college football (from Michigan).
Michigan seems to be in strong shape
