Today Michigan played its Spring Game, and I will get to that post Sunday morning, so tune in then. 

The Big News from today is that Michigan has landed two four-star linebackers in two days. 

The first one on Friday night was not a surprise with the commitment of Kaleb Ringer, cousin of former MSU Spartan Javon Ringer.  

Kaleb will come to Ann Arbor as a 6'1" 225 pound linebacker looking to make a difference on the Wolverine defense.  Kaleb is a four-star prospect to scouts, but not yet rated by Rivals or ESPN.  

Kaleb's offer list includes Cincinnati, Syracuse, West Virgina, MAC Schools, Iowa, and Illinois.  Not a bad offer list for early in the recruiting process, but some people might point out no offers from Ohio State or Michigan State. 

OSU has a very limited scholarships this year and a bunch of other troubles to worry about. Who knows why MSU didn't offer. 

The book on this kid is that he plays sideline to sideline as a run stopper.  Maybe a Which I couldn't care less; we could use a guy around Ann Arbor that can stuff the run! 

Welcome to Ann Arbor Kaleb! 

Linebacker number two is RJS!  Royce Jenkins-Stone.

RJS is part of the in-state three, a group of  highly touted prospects with James Ross and Terry Richardson. 

Royce decided today that Michigan was the place for him (no decisions yet for Ross or Richardson).  RJS is still growing into his frame, but right now is at 6'2" and 215 pounds. 

His offer list is an impressive one: Oklahoma, Florida, Alabama, Tenn, ASU, MSU, Miami, and so on.  This guy is a big time prospect and a future Wolverine! 

He comes from the Division I talent machine that is Cass Tech in Detroitcoached by former Wolverine Thomas Wilcher.  RJS had 90 tackles, three sacks and five picks last year as a junior. 

He also rushed for 10 touchdowns as a fullback. 

Royce is the first 2012 verbal commit that makes Wolverines fans that follow this stuff say "Wow!"

Let's hope there are more of those coming.   Michigan is now in a strange position with two other LB's, and probably only has one spot left.  

Both are four-star guys as well.  Joe Bolden from Cincinnati (who was up to Ann Arbor this week with his parents), and Detroit's James "Biggs" Ross.  

Would Michigan say no to one of them?  Or would they take both?  I say bring both to Ann Arbor if they want to be Wolverines!
