Don't get your hopes up, but we're not done recruiting stud DT's just yet...
ESPN 150 recruit Tim Jernigan has not dropped Michigan, despite what his coach said a few weeks ago. Jernigan will wait and see what happens to Coach Rod first, and then after the Army game he'll make some cuts if needed.
Coach Smith really made a push for Jernigan before the recruiting dead period started, and Coach Rod will make an in home visit in January. So all hope is not lost for him. Tim will also be looking to observe a Wolverine practice in Jacksonville next week, assuming some are open to the public; perhaps a lucky break for UM.
Darian Cooper is also still on the board. He said himself that Michigan had fallen out of his bubble, but after speaking to the coaches, he'll keep the Wolverines in his top five until the coaching situation is sorted out.
If RR stays, UM is likely to get an official visit, and then they'll really have a shot at landing Cooper. Whilst its still unlikely that Michigan will sign either prospect, its good to still have a chance, as they badly need a DT in this class.
