Auburn’s Gus Malzahn made this comment during the start of SEC Media Day on Monday regarding satellite camps:
Gus Malzahn on satellite camps: "Chances of a team up North coming in & taking a player us or Alabama wants are slim to none"

Michigan has two commits (Ben Bredeson and Michael Onwenu) that hold Alabama or Auburn offers. At the same time, the Wolverines will get two visits this summer – one from a current Alabama commit, and a five-star DE who Auburn is believed to be the favorite for.
While there is truth to Malzahn’s quote at the moment (UM does have two commits from the state of Alabama but neither holds offers from the Tigers’ or Crimson Tide), it seems only a matter of time before Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines swoop in on a player that both programs coveted from their own backyard.
