2016 Recruiting Awards

David Long 607x

David Long, Jr. is perhaps Michigan’s fastest 2016 recruit

Every year I post my recruiting awards to look back on in future years. You can look back on past years here (LINK) to find the hits and misses.

Best Overall Recruit: DT Rashan Gary
There’s no real suspense this year. Gary is the consensus #1 player in the country, and I gave him a TTB Rating of 100. He is awesome at the football.

Best Offensive Recruit: TE Devin Asiasi
I think the combination of Asiasi’s athleticism and Jim Harbaugh’s propensity for developing tight ends will do great things for Asiasi’s profile.

Best Defensive Recruit: DT Rashan Gary
See above.

Hit the jump for the rest of the awards.

Visitors: February 5-7, 2016

Isaiah Wilson 617x

Brooklyn (NY) Poly offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson

Michigan is putting together a junior day for the Michigan State basketball game on February 6. Here is the beginning of a list of players who are expected to attend, although this is a bare-bones list so far:

Terius Wheatley – CB – Ann Arbor (MI) Pioneer: Wheatley is the son of Michigan running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley and the brother of Michigan tight end Tyrone Wheatley, Jr. As far as I know, he does not have any scholarship offers.

Corey Malone-Hatcher – DE – St. Joseph (MI) St. Joseph: Hatcher is a 6’3″, 246 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #10 weakside end, and #186 overall. He has visited Michigan numerous times, and the Wolverines have 89% of his Crystal Ball picks so far. Malone-Hatcher suffered a lower leg injury this past season that caused him to miss a large chunk of his junior year.

Scott Nelson – S – Detroit (MI) U of D Jesuit: Nelson is a 6’2″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Boston College, Miami-OH, Michigan, and Northwestern. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #45 safety, and #616 overall. The offer from Michigan came in recently, and he’s strongly considering the Wolverines at this point.

Joshua Ross – LB – Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary’s: Ross is a 6’1″, 210 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #5 inside linebacker, and #144 overall. Michigan has 100% of his Crystal Ball picks so far. He is the younger brother of James Ross III, who just completed his career as a linebacker at Michigan.

Antjuan Simmons – LB – Ann Arbor (MI) Pioneer: Simmons is a 6’1″, 205 lb. prospect with offers from Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #23 outside linebacker, and #358 overall. He recently left Michigan off of his top list, probably in part because the Wolverines dragged their feet on offering him. It remains to be seen whether Michigan can get back in on his recruitment, but they should have a good chance, since he goes to school across the street from Michigan Stadium.

Allen Stritzinger – RB – Warren (MI) De La Salle: Stritzinger is a 6’0″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati, Michigan, and some MAC schools. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #25 running back, and #338 overall. The Crystal Ball is 100% in favor of Michigan right now, and he has declared Michigan his leader.

Isaiah Wilson – OT – Brooklyn (NY) Poly: Wilson is a 6’7″, 322 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, and Stanford, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 5-star, the #5 offensive tackle, and #15 overall. (Really? There are five tackles in the top 15 players in the country?) Wilson has openly declared that Michigan is his leader.

Tyrique Wheatley – CB – Ann Arbor (MI) Pioneer: Wheatley, the younger brother of Terius (see above), is a 5’11”, 165 lb. prospect with no offers at this time.

2016 National Signing Day: Mini-roundup

As you can probably imagine, I spent so much time writing commitment posts and updating the 2016 Offer Board last night that I didn’t have time for a substantive post for this morning. So here’s a mini-roundup in case you missed anything.

  • Rashan Gary, Wolverine (LINK)
  • Devin Asiasi, Wolverine (LINK)
  • Lavert Hill, Wolverine (LINK)
  • Quinn Nordin, Wolverine (LINK)
  • Every commit so far has been updated on the 2016 Offer Board (LINK). Scroll down to the comments section to see yesterday’s action if you don’t want to read through all 255 players’ biographical information.
  • I updated the All-Time Recruit Rankings with all the 2016 commits (LINK). Rashan Gary is our #1 recruit during the modern recruiting era, but someone who may not be getting enough hype is offensive lineman Ben Bredeson. Believe it or not, he is our 15th-best recruit since 2000. In fact, if he were in any of the 2008-2012 classes, he would have been the top recruit in our class.
  • If you want to watch video of the Signing of the Stars event, here it is: (LINK).
