Michigan football: Wolverines react to Amazon Prime, national recruits take notice of stellar play
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.
Michigan’s expanding universe
The branding of Michigan continues to find new avenues.
Jim Harbaugh has taken his team on a spring trips to Florida and Rome. Now he’s allowing cameras a behind-the-scenes look at his program and players via Amazon Prime.
Player reaction to Amazon series and more
What do Wolverines think about the series? A few talked about it and other subjects Tuesday night, including players from Florida on how they dealt with being away from family during Hurricane Irma.
Making people take notice
It’s not the just the branding of Michigan off the field that helps entice recruits. What the Wolverines, especially those on coordinator Don Brown’s defense, are doing on the field is getting the attention of some of the top high school players in the country, writes Steve Lorenz of 247Sports for the Free Press.
Big bro call
One of those dynamic defensive players is sophomore cornerback Lavert Hill. He got his first career interception Saturday against Cincinnati and turned it into a first touchdown by bringing it back 24 yards for the final score in the 36-14 victory. Then he got a call from big brother Delano.
Censoring Chase Winovich
Mo Hurst loves Chase Winovich, his fellow defensive lineman, but sometimes he thinks Winovich shouldn’t be allowed to speak to the media.
The tall tale of Zach Gentry
Nick Baumgardner of the Free Press has the story of how Zach Gentry went from recruited quarterback to tight end with a big upside. And not just because he’s 6-foot-7, although that doesn’t hurt.
3 of a kind
Everyone knew this season’s defense would be young. From WDVI in Detroit, here are three of those new players providing the biggest boost to the defense.
Future Big Ten schedules announced
The Big Ten announced conference games for the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Michigan and Wisconsin will be very familiar with each other by the end of those two seasons.
