2018

Brian Asamoah – LB – Columbus (OH) St. Francis DeSales: Asamoah is a 6’0″, 205 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pitt, and UCLA, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #44 linebacker, and #609 overall. Right now 100% of his Crystal Ball picks are in favor of Cincinnati, and he plans to announce on April 21. It’s not clear whether he’s a take for Michigan right now, since they took so many linebackers in the 2017 class, but he has named Michigan to his top 6. UPDATE: Asamoah cancelled his visit, supposedly because Jim Harbaugh won’t be in Ann Arbor.

Trent Gordon – CB – Manvel (TX) Manvel: Gordon is a 5’11”, 172 lb. prospect with offers from Cal, Colorado, Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, and Texas A&M, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #38 cornerback, and #446 overall. As a junior in 2016, he made 81 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, 2 interceptions, and 10 pass breakups. He’ll be in town on Tuesday, March 14.

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2018

Melbourne (FL) Holy Trinity Episcopal running back Jashaun Corbin was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 191 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Florida State, North Carolina, and Oregon, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #41 running back, and #700 overall. As a junior in 2017, he had 107 carries for 1,022 yards and 11 touchdowns; he also had 25 catches for 619 yards and 7 touchdowns. Corbin actually looks like a decent prospect, but if you watch his highlights, I’m not promising good football. Small crowds, lollygagging, and such will ensue.

Frisco (TX) Wakeland offensive tackle Rafiti Ghirmai was offered by Michigan. Ghirmai is a 6’4″, 290-pounder with offers from Alabama, Baylor, Florida, Georgia, Oregon, TCU, and Texas, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #26 offensive tackle, and #358 overall. He looks like he might be a guard at the next level.

Stockbridge (GA) Woodland offensive tackle James Ohonba was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 350 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #20 offensive tackle, and #264 overall. He’s a big, burly lineman who looks like he too might end up playing offensive guard in college, since he doesn’t move extremely well at 350.

Hit the jump for some more new 2018, 2019, and 2020 offers, plus some tidbits.

MLive: Michigan is #7 seed, will face Oklahoma State

Michigan won the Big Ten Championship and will play Oklahoma State on Friday (LINK). As a #7 seed, they’ll face #10 seed Oklahoma State in Indianapolis at 12:15 p.m. There’s a Pick the Score thread on the message board (LINK).

I don’t know how Michigan got a #7 seed. I was expecting a #6 with a shot at a #5. I’m not sure how the selection committee looked at the way Michigan played over the last several weeks, watched them mostly tear through the Big Ten tourney, and then put them as a #7. I get they were sort of mercurial during the first two-thirds of the season, but every team has its ups and downs except the top few teams in the country.

Hit the jump for a bunch of beautiful women.
