MLive: Hurst among Michigan’s NFL combine invites

Maurice Hurst, Mason Cole, and Mike McCray got invited to the NFL Combine (LINK). Senior starters not invited are Khalid Hill, Henry Poggi, and Patrick Kugler, and Kugler already plans to become a grad assistant at Michigan next year. I’m a little surprised that Hill didn’t get an invitation, because I think he would make a nice tight end/H-back at the next level.

There are some pictures and a gif of Michelle Lewin beyond the jump.

Preferred Walk-ons for 2018

Utica (MI) Eisenhower QB Max Wittwer

It’s difficult to track preferred walk-on offers since recruiting sites, Twitter, etc. aren’t geared toward these types of things, but I’ve put together a list of walk-on offers and commitments that I have seen so far. If you have additions to the list, please let me know so I can add them. Thanks.

A preferred walk-on is different than a student body walk-on. Preferred walk-ons cannot get athletic scholarships within two years of enrolling in college, but they can get academic scholarships. They are guaranteed a spot on the fall camp roster. There are 85 scholarships and the maximum for a fall camp roster is 105, so an FBS team can have up to 20 preferred walk-ons start practice in August. Other walk-ons must wait until after the first contest to join the practice squad, meaning they miss the first month of practices and installs.

Commitments: Kyle Grady (CA), Max Wittwer (MI)
Offers: N/A

Hit the jump for other offers and commitments.

With the early signing period that took place over three days in December, there’s a lot less hype about this year’s “National Signing Day” on February 7. Personally, I’m not a fan of hyping up the early signing period a week before Christmas, because there’s so much else going on at that time of year. Of course, the NCAA shouldn’t make their rules based on the lives of bloggers, but my personal preference would lean toward a time in February when not much else is happening.

Anyway, for those of you still paying attention to the few players who are still left on the board, here’s a look at some of Michigan’s top targets:
