Coach Tumbas picks the Wolverines to go 1-13 on the year. Obviously I’ll have much more season preview-type material as the spring approaches, but that seems to be a pretty common guess for Michigan’s season (poor Mercer).
Speaking of the Michigan women… ESPNHS is reporting the first known verbal commitment to the Michigan women’s varsity program: Annapolis (Md.) Midfielder Madeleine Dion. She’s a member of the class of 2013, which will likely be the first class that Wolverines coach Jenny Ulehla signs.
ESPNHS’s top college commitment story last week was one with a Michigan connection. The verbal of Warren De La Salle goalie Jacob Takacs to Hendrix College (linked by GLS here) earned the most pageviews of any story in the category.
Michigan has picked up its first 2014 commit.
Ann Arbor Pioneer’s Dylan Swanson will continue his career at Detroit.
Grand Valley State alum Cam Holding was named to the roster of the NLL Colorado Mammoth.
