The A2i Wheel and Tire Guestline presents Josh Helmholdt of Rivals.com during Friday’s recruiting-heavy episode of Sports in the Mitten with Adam Biggers and John Gustin.

Helmholdt hops aboard to discuss the top 2016 football prospects in the state of Michigan. In addition, he’ll let us know which schools have the most attention from the top talents.

What are recruits saying about Michigan State and Mark Dantonio? What are they saying about Michigan and Jim Harbaugh? How much influence does Ohio State and Urban Meyer carry in the state these days?

The 2016 class is one of the “deepest” in recent memory for Helmholdt, who has more than a decade of recruiting experience with Rivals.Tune in to find out when the top players plan to make their decisions.

On Thursday night, Dennis Norfleet issued an apology via Instagram to Michigan, as an institution, and to Wolverines fans. What does it mean? Adam and John debate that topic and touch on the transfer of Blake Countess, who recently announced that he was leaving the Wolverines.

Adam also questions the Fab Five's maturity. This back-and-forth nonsense is ruining the legacy of a great team, and Chris Webber and Jalen Rose are the only ones who can stop the carnage. 

And finally, Adam and John also cover a series of basketball-related talking points, including LeBron and the Cavs’ win over the Bulls, who simply ran out of gas during the series.
