Jerimy Finch and Marquis Maze opt out of U-M verbal commitments

John Heuser of The Ann Arbor News has reported that recruits Jerimy Finch and Marquis Maze have opted out of their verbal commitments to Michigan and they have each decided to play their college ball elsewhere. The decommitment of Finch is not a surprise as his "commitment" never seemed to be very strong in the first place. (See post of May 12, 2006: Jerimy Finch verbally commits to U-M for 2007...kind of...sort of). Finch has now committed to play for his home state Indiana Hoosiers while Maze will play for Alabama's new head coach, Nick Saban. The loss of the highly touted Finch is going to be viewed by some as a setback as Michigan's secondary is deemed to be short on talent. Even without Finch and Maze, Michigan's recruiting class is expected to be a top-15 crop when national signing day occurs on February 7, 2007. Go Blue!

Have you heard anything on recruits Ronald Johnson or Donovan Warren? Both are highly touted CB recruits. We land one of those guys (along with 4 star M. Williams), and we will have some real talented athletic (albeit young and inexperienced) CB's to toss into the mix next season. Guys with that type of athleticism can step in and make an immediate contribution. At least is a coaching system is in place that allows young recruits to flourish and win playing time (i.e. Pete Carroll)...

Ron Johnson (Muskegon High) would put Michigan's recruiting class into the Top 10 according to recruiting guru Tom Lemming if the Wolverines are able to sign Johnson. Right now, Johnson is still considering Michigan, Florida, Ohio State, Michigan State and Southern Cal.

Donovan Warren appears headed to USC from everything I've seen. Michigan could sure use him especially if we do not land Ron Johnson. However, I think of the players you mentioned Michigan's best chance is clearly with Johnson.
