Michigan football-Michigan recruiting-Joe Milton

Michigan football is always the main topic in Breakfast of Victors, Land of 10’s daily Wolverines notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Wolverines sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Michigan football, recruiting, basketball and more.  

Joe Milton confirms commitment

Quarterback Joe Milton reiterated his commitment to Michigan as part of the Class of 2018 to Brandon Brown of on Friday. Milton is a 4-star recruit from the Orlando area who committed to the Wolverines in May.

Michigan also received a commitment from 3-star quarterback Kevin Doyle of Washington, D.C. Doyle’s commitment brought rise to speculation that Milton might change his mind. This statement makes it pretty certain he won’t.

Five things we’ve learned

Four games down, the bye week is no more, and eight more games remain for the Wolverines. Rachel Lenzi of Land of 10 has five things we’ve learned so far about this team. 

Fantastic frosh

Michigan’s 2017 freshmen came in as highly touted as any recruiting class the Wolverines have ever had. How have they done through the first four games?

Nate Johnson suspended

No specifics have been given as to why Nate Johnson has been suspended from all team activities, but that’s the situation he finds himself in. The sophomore was moved to cornerback this preseason after playing as a wide receiver last season. 

Change of mind

Taylor Currie committed to Michigan basketball originally for the Class of 2019. The power forward from Clarkston, Mich., then re-classified for the Class of 2018. Now, he’s opened back up his recruitment

Late kickoff announcement causes problem

Michigan State president Lou Anna K. Simon and former MSU coach and current university trustee George Perles said Saturday that the late scheduling of the Michigan-Michigan State game this week has put a strain on fans and students from both sides. 

Big splash

The Michigan Swimming & Diving team’s Water Carnival attracted plenty of university celebrities, including football coach Jim Harbaugh and baseball coach Erik Bakich. Enjoy the performances.
