Running Backs visit

The top two running backs on Michigan's recruiting board both visited campus last week, although one traveled considerably further than the other. Firstly Demetrius Hart (accompanied by 2012 Nick Patti - more on him later) who popped in on his way back from a dominating display at the Nike 7 on 7 tournament in Oregon.

The visit was a good refresher for Hart, who hasn't been on campus since the Spring Game earlier this year. He got to hang out with good friend Ricardo Miller, as well as Coach Rod. Hart's decision time line may have moved up, and next time he's on campus (UConn game?) he could pull the trigger. Michigan are heavy favorites here.

The second RB in was four star prospect Justice Hayes, but unfortunately he didn't get to meet with Coach Rod, who was on vacation on the Friday. He's not naming a leader right now, but its probably not Michigan. However the visit on Friday helped UM's cause, which is good because Hayes is moving his decision timetable up, in fact a commitment could come by the end of the month. 

Hayes realizes that a good education is important, however he seems to rule out Northwestern (a school he was high on) because they aren't a big time program. The four real contenders are UM, MSU, ND and Iowa, and I'd probably put MSU as the favorites.
