2020 Recruiting Update: May 23, 2019

    Ja'Khi Douglas - WR - Houma (LA) Terrebonne: Douglas is a 5'9", 187 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and Florida State, among others. He's a 4-star, the #33 wide receiver, and #180 overall. He's built a little bit like a running back, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him play in the backfield a little bit when he gets to college. He claims a 4.48 forty, a 4.51 shuttle, and a 37" vertical.

    Kyle Edwards - RB - Destrehan (LA) Destrehan: Edwards is a 6'0", 210-pounder with offers from Alabama, Notre Dame, and Texas A&M, among others. He's a 3-star, the #34 running back, and #463 overall. He's a burly running back who reminds me a little bit of former Michigan back Thomas Rawls.

    Montra Edwards - DT - Lexington (MS) Holmes Central: Edwards is a 6'2", 282-pounder, and with those measurements, I can't help thinking of Maurice Hurst, Jr. He's a 3-star, the #62 defensive tackle, and #785 overall. His stat line of 102 tackles, 25 tackles for loss, and 13 sacks as a junior is also pretty impressive, if not unbelievable.

    2019 Season Countdown: #96 Charles Thomas

    Name: Charles Thomas
    Height: 5'11"
    Weight: 224 lbs.
    High school: Oakdale (CT) St. Thomas More
    Position: Linebacker
    Class: Freshman
    Jersey number: N/A
    Last year: Thomas was a senior in high school (LINK). He made 49 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 1 sack, and a 44-yard punt return for a touchdown.
    TTB Rating: N/A

    Thomas is a tough prospect to pin down - figuratively and figuratively. (Not literally, because that would just be mean.) Not only has he attended three high schools - Langston Hughes in GA, IMG Academy in FL, and St. Thomas More in CT - but his highlights are a bit scattered. He's listed on Michigan's signing day info as being 5'11" and 224 lbs., even though those are often exaggerated, and he was listed as a recruit at 6'0". So he's probably 5'10".

    As for his play on the field, it doesn't appear to be too impressive. He doesn't show a lot of sideline-to-sideline speed, and his physicality is combined with less than stellar technique. He could be a thumping two-down middle linebacker, but those are a thing of the past. Can he improve his speed and coverage? If not, I'm afraid he'll be playing from behind throughout his career. I expect him to redshirt while those things get sorted out.

    Prediction: Redshirt

    2019 Season Countdown: #97 Jared Davis

    Jared Davis

    Name: Jared Davis
    Height: 5'11"
    Weight: 202 lbs.
    High school: Frankenmuth (MI) Frankenmuth
    Position: Safety
    Class: Redshirt sophomore
    Jersey number: #23
    Last year: I ranked Davis #110 and said he would be a backup safety and special teamer (LINK). He did not see game action.
    TTB Rating: N/A

    There's not a whole lot to say about Davis at this point. He went from being listed at 6'1" and 180 lbs. last year to 5'11" and 202 lbs. this year, so he got shorter and put on 22 lbs. That's an impressive one-year growth pattern! When we saw him in the spring, he was being slower than Michigan's scholarship offensive skill players. Not a surprise. This year Davis is bound to fit into the same general niche, which is as a borderline special teamer.

    Prediction: Backup safety, special teamer
