It’s been a while since I’ve done a recruiting update on the 2021 class. That’s because they’re over two years away from signing. But now it’s time to catch up on everything we’ve missed. These aren’t necessarily “new” offers, but nobody else is doing recruiting updates on 2021 prospects, so you probably haven’t heard of many of these players.
Christian Abraham – CB – Paramus (NJ) Catholic: Abraham is a 5’11”, 195 lb. prospect with an offer from Rutgers. That’s the alma mater of Jabrill Peppers, Rashan Gary, and Drew Singleton, though the former two are gone to the NFL, and Singleton announced he would transfer. Michigan does still have safeties coach Chris Partridge, who was the head coach at Paramus.
Hayden Conner – OT – Katy (TX) Taylor: Conner is a 6’5″, 298 lb. prospect with offers from Georgia, LSU, and Texas, among others. He’s the 247 Sports 4-star, the #5 offensive tackle, and #27 overall.
Hit the jump for a bunch of other offers.
Makai Cope – CB – Venice (CA) Venice: Cope is a 6’1″, 170-pounder with an offer from Syracuse.
Greg Crippen – OG – Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy: Originally from Don Brown’s stomping grounds in Massachusetts, Crippen is a 6’4″, 270 lb. guard at IMG Academy with offers from Boston College and Purdue. He has taken multiple visits to Michigan, most recently for the Indiana game.

Carlos Del Rio – QB – Powder Springs (GA) McEachern: Del Rio is a 6’1″, 201 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Florida State, and Miami, among others.
Elliot Donald – DT – Pittsburgh (PA) Central Catholic: Donald is a 6’2″, 220 lb. prospect with offers from Pitt and Rutgers, among others. He’s the nephew of Los Angeles Ram (and former Pitt Panther) defensive tackle Aaron Donald.
Tylon Dunlap – DE – Charlotte (NC) Harding University: Dunlap is a 6’0″, 220-pounder with offers from Florida, Tennessee, and West Virginia. He’s a teammate of 2019 linebacker Quavaris Crouch.

A.J. Kirk, Jr. – S – Dublin (OH) Coffman: Kirk is a 6’0″, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati, Kentucky, and Purdue, among others. He’s the younger brother of former Ohio State safety Mike Doss, so even without an offer from the Buckeyes so far, it’s likely he won’t be coming to Michigan.
Drake Maye – QB – Cornelius (NC) Myers Park: Maye is a 6’3″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from North Carolina, Ohio State, Tennessee, and West Virginia. His brother Luke plays basketball for North Carolina, and his dad Mark played quarterback at UNC in the 1980s.
