Will Conley be next to defect?

WolverineNation has teamed up with ESPN National Recruiting Director Tom Luginbill to answer some of the burning questions in Michigan recruiting.

1) Michigan commit Gareon Conley has said he might visit Ohio State and Oregon. If he does then he is no longer a part of Michigan's 2013 class. How big of a deal would it be for Michigan to lose Conley?

Tom Luginbill: I think anytime you lose a corner it is a big deal, especially tall corners. We have felt Conley was a huge sleeper with a high ceiling for development, and Leon McQuay III (Seffner, Fla./Armwood), as good as he is, isn't a corner. They had to see this coming to some degree when OSU offered Conley. It is part of the process. If you are going to make stipulations with verbal commitments, you can't go back. If they lose him, they must have a plan to replace him.
