Preview: Michigan vs. Indiana

RUSH OFFENSE vs. INDIANA RUSH DEFENSE

Michigan is #31 in rush yards (215 per game) and yards per carry (5.02). They’re led by Karan Higdon, who topped 1,000 yards (1,005 to be exact) for the season, the first time a Michigan running back has hit 1,000 yards since 2011. Indiana is #85 in rushing defense (181 yards allowed/game) and #87 in yards allowed per carry (4.58). Senior strong safety Jonathan Crawford (6’2″, 196 lbs.) leads the team in tackles with 55, and it’s generally not a good thing when a safety leads a team in that category. In fact, three of the top four tacklers on the squad are defensive backs, with the lone exception being senior linebacker Dameon Willis, Jr. (6’1″, 225), who’s second with 51. Sophomore hybrid space player Marcelino Ball (6’0″, 222) leads the team with 6.5 tackles for loss. Michigan’s offensive line struggled a little bit against Rutgers last week, so there’s no guarantee that this will be a walkover, but it should be a decent day for the Wolverines.
Advantage: Michigan

It’s been a while since I posted a recruiting update, so here are some updates from October and the first half of November.

COMMITMENTS

Tulsa (OK) Booker T. Washington safety Daxton Hill committed to Michigan (LINK).

Everett (MA) Everett wide receiver/cornerback Mike Sainristil committed to Michigan (LINK).

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Douglasville (GA) Douglas County center Parker Ball was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 275 lb. prospect with no other offers from FBS programs.

Cleveland (OH) St. Ignatius linebacker Tommy Eichenberg was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 225 lb. prospect who committed to Boston College back in June. He’s a 4-star, the #19 inside linebacker, and #358 overall. He visited Michigan for the Penn State game a few weekends ago. He’s the brother of Notre Dame offensive lineman Liam Eichenberg.

Dacula (GA) Dacula cornerback Jalen Perry decommitted from Georgia. He’s a 6’1″, 188-pounder whose crystal ball picks are currently 100% for South Carolina, but he took an unofficial visit to Michigan a few weeks ago and will visit officially this weekend. He’s a 4-star, the #19 cornerback, and #172 overall.
