What time is he announcing today?
I don't think anyone knows exactly what time it will be. Sounds like he will just be calling the coaches, not necessarily having a public announcement.
The suspense is killing me!
Just came over to this board to try and find an answer to this question. Guess it can happen at anytime.
How are you guys feeling about Kozan? Lots of Michigan folks seem to not be optimistic. He's at a position of need for us, but either school will be a great decision for him.

He is a position of need for the Hawks also - especially with the posibbility of Jaleel Johnson NOTqualifying.
I think a lot of us are a little worried as well, we should have closed him out a lot sooner and the fact that he hasn't committed yet doesn't make us feel all too confident. Probably a toss up between the 3 schools, which I guess gives us all reason to be optimistic because it's under a 50/50 shot.
Sine Missione -- Never be a spectator for unfairness or stupidity, argue for arguments sake; the grave will give plenty of time for silence.
Is the 3rd school you're referring to Auburn? I've heard that he's deciding between Michigan and Iowa.
Yes it is, I've been under the impression Auburn may still by in it, although I personally would probably give it 40%-Iowa and Michigan and 20% Auburn. I just don't think they get him for some reason.
It seems most likely that his is going to Michigan. If Brady came in to see him last night, I am sure that will seal the deal. Plus I am sure he would want to be the 7th OL in your class! Unbelievable that Michigan can recruit 7 OL and Iowa has an unheralded kid from ILL and a JUCO...
Any particular reason as to why the UM folks aren't feeling optimistic?

I don't think it's any rational reason, but more that losing out on Garnett earlier this week has fans cautious and a bit pessimistic.
If I had to guess it's because they want room for diamond and they already have 6 OL ppl.... Hoke pry told Kozan they want him but he should wait, fall back. But that's outside looking in, no inside info just my logic
Plus a really good commit in Ryan Ward. Ward, Keppy, Simmons and possibly Kozan would be a good group.
We only have 4 OL currently verbally committed to this class: Magnuson, Kalis, Braden, and Bars. Kozan is big need because of our terrible depth at Center, and we're still going after Diamond and Muller (current Rutgers commit). Michigan will take all 3 for a total of 7 if they all commit. OL depth is turrible.
If Hoke told him to wait i would guess that plays in our favor. But I literally know nothing.
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
Any updates on Kozan? Think we will find out who he commits to today?
Fundamentals are a crutch for the talent-less.
Nothing yet. I'll post any updates I hear.
Almost 7pm Kozan's time and 8pm our time. Are we sure he's going to announce?
Isn't Curry supposed to decide tonight also?
the tgraham approves this message~ the tgraham
I hope the Hawks are in his ear. He needs know that we really need him.
He's not announcing until Wednesday.
I think Curry has moved his to Wednesday.
No it's not a sure thing. He's said that he hopes to make a decision tonight.
Guys just read that he said 10pm eastern tonight. Hoping we can pull him from your grasps, good luck.
