Houston (TX) Westside defensive tackle Jordan Elliott decommitted from Michigan on Wednesday night. He is expected to commit to Texas sooner or later.

Like Elizabeth Taylor, Elliott has been “committed” several times. He was a Baylor commit and a Houston commit before he pledged to Michigan. At some point in there, he was rumored to have silently committed to Texas. Now he will probably sign with Texas next Wednesday. Unless the wind is blowing north, in which case he will end up at Boise State. If he wakes up and sees his shadow on Wednesday morning, he will sign with Punxsutawney Community College. If he doesn’t see his shadow, he’s a vampire. According to NCAA bylaws, vampires are ineligible.

Winter Garden (FL) West Orange wide receiver Eddie McDoom publicly committed to Michigan on Wednesday. He was previously committed to Oregon; he also had offers from Boston College, Clemson, Florida, Ohio State, South Carolina, and Texas, among others.

McDoom is listed by Rivals at 6’1″, 170 lbs., while other sites list him as short as 5’11”. Perhaps the 5’11” measurement is an old number, and perhaps the 6’1″ is your typical exaggeration. He claims a 4.65 forty. As a junior in 2014, he caught 47 passes for 854 yards and 15 touchdowns.

RATINGS
ESPN: 4-star, 82 grade, #23 WR, #184 overall
Rivals: 3-star, #75 WR
Scout: 3-star, #68 WR
247 Sports: 3-star, 88 grade, #67 WR, #416 overall

If I Had My Druthers . . . 2016 Tight Ends

Devin Asiasi

As I like to do on occasion, I took a look at the remaining tight end targets on the board for Michigan and created my pecking order. These are my opinions of which players I would rank highest for Michigan’s needs. I specifically avoid referring to recruiting rankings for guidance, although as an avid follower of recruiting, I do have a general idea of the players’ general star ratings. I posted my list for receivers on Sunday (LINK).

1. Devin Asiasi – TE – Concord (CA) De La Salle:
Asiasi, at 6’5″ and 275 lbs., looks like a slightly taller version of former Arizona and NFL tight end Brandon Manumaleuna. He fancies himself as a skill player, and it’s tough to argue. De La Salle lines him up out wide or in the slot sometimes, and they count on him to make plays in space. He shows soft hands and some delightful agility. He doesn’t have blazing speed, but he is an effective and pretty strong runner after the catch. His blocking skills are also impressive at times; he bends well and looks for contact. He could probably afford to lose some bad weight, but he can contribute early while he reshapes his body.

Hit the jump for the rest of the list.
