Michigan Could Get Involved in Penn State Free Agency and Grab Silas Redd
Michigan's running back depth is solid but not spectacular; and with the recent indefinite suspension handed down to Fitzgerald Toussaint from the Michigan hierarchy, another running back could help tie up the Big Ten.
Nobody knows how long Toussaint will be unavailable but it's perfectly conceivable that he could miss a few games and so it would be vital to have another running back capable of carrying the load in a power-running conference.
I'm not sure how I feel about taking advantage of Penn State's downfall, but it appears some teams have already reached out to certain players and had a word in their ear.
I'd rather the player made his desire to attend Michigan known and then the two parties could talk, but it's understandable that the Wolverines will likely have to make the first move.
Now I'm not sure if Silas Redd is even leaving, but if the recent speculation regarding his future even has a bit of truth in it, Michigan would be crazy not to have a close look at the player.
Redd is a top college running back and USC has already let Penn State know that the running back is a top target.
Fitzgerald ran for just over 1000 yards last year and I'm not saying Redd would replace him, but wouldn't it be nice to have that one-two punch?
I understand that both are starter-caliber players and might not be interested in sharing carries, but it would be nice to add someone who gained 1241 yards on the ground last year.
Of course USC is a top breeding ground for running backs and so any attempt at recruiting Redd could be in vain.
I know it's not Michigan's style to accept many transfers, but I think it would be great to go back in for the same guy it recruited a few years back.
Michigan should be a hugely attractive proposition to anyone right now and it could maybe steal a march on USC because it's not as if moving to California is an easy step in your life.
Of course, there is nothing that suggests Michigan has made a move and I'm just speculating.
But wouldn't you want another great running back to add to the team, let him enter the draft and let Derrick Green become the next star if he enjoys the BBQ?
