As if the the news of Junior Hemingway's commitment
wasn't enough for the Michigan faithful yesterday, word finally came that Marques Slocum finally received a SAT score high enough to be accepted to Michigan. The one catch however is that he is not eligible by the NCAA yet. Regardless, he will be in Ann Arbor and can earn his eligibility. Slocum was a 2005 recruit who went to prep school instead of attending another school as a partial qualifier because he wanted to go to Michigan. He kept trying at it and finally has made it. No matter what happens, Slocum will always be one of my favorite players because he wanted to go to Michigan and would accept nothing less. He has endeared himself to many fans because of this work ethic and I know I'm not the only one that can't wait to see him run down the tunnel and touch the Go Blue Banner one day.
