Update 7/29: Noted that Florida, Oklahoma, and Miami lead for NV RB DeMarco Murray. Noted that Miami leads for VA RB Brandon Minor, removed QB Jake Locker(UW), QB Mitch Mustain(no longer listing us), OL Conor Smith(Ohio State). Moved Butch Lewis from OL to DT. Moved IN S Steve Brown to committed. Linked to AJ Wallace article.

Editorial Opinion: As expected, Brown committed to Michigan. Brown was under the radar a bit until the Michigan NIKE Camp, where he ran very fast in various directions and jumped high in some more. He ran a "4.39," if you believe 40 times. Before the day was out he had offers from Michigan and Notre Dame. He's in both the Rivals and Scout top 100 lists and is being generally described as a "freak" and a "stud" by people who like annoying mgoblog.

Brown is projected as a free safety and plans on wearing #2 in tribute to Cato June Charles Woodson. Teh sweet.

Couple commits elsewhere, none particularly surprising. Smith is the son of an ex-Buckeye. Locker blipped up with one article on GBW and was never heard from again in Michigan recruitnik world. This happens a lot on GBW: a West Coast guy says he's interested like, once, and I put him on the board and he's never heard from again. In the future skepticism will increase.

AJ Wallace article doesn't sound promising. Michigan is in the running... to receive an official visit. Usually that's a death knell for a particular school's chances.
