2018 Season Countdown: #100 Jameson Offerdahl

Jameson Offerdahl (#56, image via MLive)

Name: Jameson Offerdahl
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 214 lbs.
High school: Fort Lauderdale (FL) Cardinal Gibbons
Position: Linebacker
Class: Redshirt junior
Jersey number: #56
Last year: I did not rank Offerdahl. He played in one game.

Offerdahl was a guy whose film I liked coming out of high school, and he has turned in some solid practice performances the past couple years. He was Scout Team Special Teams Player of the Week twice in 2016, and he was Scout Team Defensive Player of the Year in 2017. For that reason alone, I might have him a little underrated here at #100 overall. Good scout team players are valuable. The reason I can’t place him higher on the list is that Don Brown doesn’t bother going very deep in his linebacker rotation, and there are a handful of guys ahead of Offerdahl. Offerdahl might be getting off-season hype like the days of Kevin Leach and Mark Moundros, except there’s so much other talent available on the roster that Michigan doesn’t need a Kevin Leach this season. Offerdahl has taken incremental steps forward each season, and since he played against Ohio State, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the coaching staff looked to him to play more special teams in 2018.

Prediction: Backup linebacker, special teamer

Recruiting Update: May 21, 2018

Jaydon Hill (#4, image via AL.com)

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Richmond (VA) Henrico wide receiver Jahad Carter, a Virginia Tech commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 185 lb. prospect who also holds offers from South Carolina and Syracuse, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #73 athlete, and #773 overall. He has been committed to the Hokies since September of 2017.

St. Louis (MO) Trinity Catholic offensive guard Ira Henry was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 320-pounder with offers from Alabama, Florida, Illinois, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #73 offensive tackle, and #845 overall.

Madison (AL) Bob Jones cornerback Jaydon Hill was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 172 lb. corner with offers from Nebraska, South Carolina, Texas, and Texas A&M, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #26 cornerback, and #294 overall. He had 5 interceptions and 26 pass breakups as a junior in 2017. I really like his style of play and I think he would fit in well in Michigan’s defensive scheme.
