Michigan Football Recruiting at a Glance: The Plundering of Ohio State

In the wake of the the mighty sweatervest's resignation (see any photo of former OSU head coach Jim Tressel to understand his nickname), the normal hotbeds for current and potential OSU commits have been vulnerable. Michigan, Wisconsin and Michigan State have all taken advantage and this last one is a crucial blow to OSU and a significant W for us. Kyle Kalis, a top high school player in the loaded state of Ohio, who recently decommitted from OSU, has officially committed to Michigan. He is rated the No. 18 overall and No.4 offensive lineman (OL) in the country by rivals, one of the three major recruiting info sites along with espn and scout. Both scout and espn are high on his talent as well (No. 6 OL No. 21 overall on scout, No 20 OL and No. 138 overall to ESPN), and when all three sites consensus high rating of a player it translates well into highly productive college players. This is a big coup for Michigan. Kalis himself said there will be more to follow out of Ohio, which is great news for us down the road.
