Michigan recruiting: Despite Penn State loss, commits pledge loyalty, faith in program

Michigan recruiting-Michigan 2018 commits-Cameron McGrone

Michigan suffered a 42-13 loss at Penn State Saturday night, the Wolverines’ second loss in their last three games. The result dropped them to 5-2 on the season (2-2 in the Big Ten) but it did nothing to dampen the spirits of the recruits currently committed to Jim Harbaugh & Co.

Here are a few of the reactions Land of 10 gathered from those commits:

Sammy Faustin; 2018 CB; Naples, Fla.

“You’ve got to brush it off and take the next steps to move forward. It’ll be in the back of your head but you can’t let it take over your mind,” Faustin told Land of 10. “I feel like that will help them the next game.”

Christian Turner; 2018 RB; Buford, Ga.

Mustapha Muhammad; 2018 TE; Missouri City, Texas

Cameron McGrone; 2018 LB; Indianapolis

“It’s tough to see my team lose, especially by a big amount of points, but I’m not too worried about the loss,” McGrone told Land of 10. “Every team has bad games, everyone makes mistakes during the game. It was just that some of our mistakes made led to a score by the other team. I know the guys will stick together and come back even stronger next week.

“Go Blue.”

Aidan Hutchinson; 2018 DE; Dearborn, Mich.

“The outcome was disappointing,” Hutchison told Land of 10, “but there are still many games left and they can still accomplish a lot these next few weeks.”

Gemon GreenGerman Green; 2018 DBs; DeSoto, Texas 

“We can’t wait to get to Ann Arbor and be able to help the team. Don’t worry about the loss. We wish they had won, but it’s still Go Blue 100%”
