McKeesport (PA) McKeesport athlete Khaleke Hudson
ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2016
McKeesport (PA) McKeesport safety Khaleke Hudson was offered by Michigan. Hudson is a 5’11”, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan State, Penn State, Pitt, UCLA, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #40 outside linebacker, and #391 overall. He is committed to play in the 2016 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. Hudson is one of those kids who stands out because of his physicality more than his pure speed or athleticism, although he does have some of those skills as well. Michigan is recruiting him as an “athlete” and he falls into the same category of someone like Devin Gil, a current Michigan commit who might be too slow for safety and too small for linebacker. Penn State and West Virginia are also heavily in the mix for Hudson. McKeesport regularly produces FBS talent, perhaps the biggest of whom in recent years was Delvon Simmons in the class of 2011.
Wayne (NJ) De Paul running back Kareem Walker decommitted from Ohio State. He’s a 6’1″, 210 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Notre Dame, and USC, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #1 running back, and #34 overall. Walker had committed to Ohio State in January, but he started to have second thoughts this fall. He did take a visit to Michigan and said that cornerback Jabrill Peppers is like his big brother, so Michigan obviously has some things in its favor. However, Walker said that he wants to take other visits, so Michigan is not a slam dunk choice. The Wolverines are in the market for a bona fide running back since the current roster options are somewhat underwhelming, and Southfield (MI) Southfield running back Matt Falcon is no longer considered a football commit. De Paul is also the home of defensive end Quayshon Alexander (Nebraska) and offensive guard Thiyo Lukusa (Michigan State), although the latter is a transfer from Traverse City, Michigan.

Brunswick (GA) Glynn cornerback DeeJay Dallas was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 170 lb. prospect who committed to Georgia in July; he also has offers from Auburn, Florida, and South Carolina, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #26 athlete, and #258 overall. Dallas is a speedy, compact athlete who looks like a corner or maybe a safety. He has good speed and strength for an underclassman, and I could see him as a potential replacement for Jabrill Peppers at that nickel corner spot if he were to reconsider his commitment.
Suwanee (GA) Peachtree Ridge defensive back DeAngelo Gibbs was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’2″, 204 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Oregon, and USC, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 5-star, the #1 cornerback, and #4 overall. His offer from Michigan came a couple weeks ago, although it looks like I forgot to include it in the last update or two. He moves very well and could play cornerback, safety, or wide receiver at the next level. With his current size, it seems like he might outgrow the cornerback position, so I’m guessing he ends up at safety. Georgia is the favorite, but they are having some struggles on the field. Gibbs is looking at visiting Michigan for the Ohio State game on November 28th.
Hit the jump for a couple more new offers, some guys who committed elsewhere, and some random bits.
