La Jolla (CA) Bishop’s School quarterback Tyler Buchner was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’2″, 200-pounder who was already committed to Michigan for lacrosse, and now he has a football offer. UCLA has also offered him for football.

Monroeville (PA) Gateway running back Derrick Davis, Jr. was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 175-pounder with offers from Penn State, Pitt, and West Virginia. He grew up as an Alabama fan, and his dad played at Michigan State. So . . . I have a hard time seeing this go in Michigan’s direction.

West Lafayette (IN) West Lafayette linebacker Yanni Karlaftis was offered by Michigan. Karlaftis is a 6’3″, 205 lb. outside linebacker, and he’s the brother of 2019 defensive end George Karlaftis, a Purdue commit. If you’ve not familiar with the story of the Karlaftis family, it’s a very interesting – and sad – tale. They grew up in Athens, Greece, after their father got two degrees, an undergrad at Miami-FL and a Ph.D at Purdue. Their dad tragically passed away in 2014 after the family moved from Greece to West Lafayette, IN. Here’s a more in-depth article if you’re interested (LINK).
