What I Knew: Daxton Hill to Michigan

Okay, so I will admit first-off: I didn’t expect Daxton Hill to commit to Michigan — tonight. But, I had somewhat expected it to happen at some point, which is why I had a pre-write pretty much ready to go the moment he tweeted out his commitment.

Now that he’s made his commitment official, I can tell you that he told me off the record that he knew where he was going, but didn’t know when he was going to pull the trigger. He also didn’t share with me where that was, but, like I asked him in the interview, there was the public speculation that it was between Alabama and Michigan, and he didn’t refute that.

I reported back during the summer that sources close to Michigan felt ‘tepid optimism’ (link to that above) regarding their chances with Hill, citing a certain “Michigan feeling” at The Opening. I spoke to those same sources after the official visit this weekend, and it remained something of a tepid optimism. There wasn’t a feeling either way whether Michigan had gotten Hill on the visit or not. But, obviously, they rolled out the big guns, bringing out AD Warde Manuel and such, and Michigan won out.
