ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2020

Jordan Banks – DE – Harbor City (CA) Narbonne: Banks is a 6’3″, 245 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Florida, LSU, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #17 strongside end, and #302 overall.

Dee Beckwith – TE – Florence (AL) Florence: Beckwith is a 6’3″, 210 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Michigan, and South Carolina, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #21 athlete, and #305 overall. Florence is the alma mater of current Michigan safety J’Marick Woods.

Olu Fashanu – OT – Washington (DC) Gonzaga: Fashanu is a 6’5″, 290-pounder with offers from Alabama, Florida, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #49 offensive tackle, and #430 overall.

Elijah Gaines – CB – Alexandria (VA) Episcopal: Gaines is a 6’3″, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Duke, Pitt, and Purdue. Despite his listed size (which might be exaggerated) he moves extremely well and could stick at corner in college. Episcopal is the alma mater of Michigan defensive end Luiji Vilain.

Jahmyr Gibbs – RB – Dalton (GA) Dalton: Gibbs is a 5’11”, 180-pounder with offers from Iowa State, Louisville, and Texas A&M. As a junior in 2018, he ran the ball 163 times for 1,431 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Dontae Manning – CB – Kansas City (MO) Raytown: Manning is a 6’0″, 175 lb. prospect with offers from Iowa, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #45 cornerback, and #625 overall.

Jonah Monheim – OT – Moorpark (CA) Moorpark: Monheim is a 6’5″, 280 lb. prospect with offers from Cal and USC, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #63 offensive tackle, and #562 overall.

Omari Porter – CB – Auburn (AL) Auburn: Porter is a 6’1″, 175-pounder with offers from Indiana, Iowa, and Vanderbilt, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #30 cornerback, and #464 overall.

Ethan Pouncey – CB – Winter Park (FL) Winter Park: Pouncey is a 6’1″, 160-pounder with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, and Florida State, among others. He’s a dynamic athlete who could play receiver or corner at the next level.

Kobe Pryor – RB – Cedartown (GA) Cedartown: Pryor is a 6’0″, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Texas, and West Virginia, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #47 running back, and #611 overall. He attends the alma mater of former Georgia (and currently Cleveland Browns) running back Nick Chubb.

Kole Taylor – TE – Grand Junction (CO) Central: Taylor is a 6’6″, 230-pounder with offers from Arkansas, Colorado, and Missouri, among others. Michigan is sending out a lot of offers in the state of Colorado during this 2020 cycle.

Chantz Williams – DE – Orange Park (FL) Oakleaf: Williams is a 6’4″, 235 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, and Miami. He’s a 4-star, the #8 weakside end, and #129 overall. He claims a 4.78 forty and a 4.69 shuttle.

Dazalin Worsham – WR – Trussville (AL) Hewitt-Trussville: Worsham is a 6’0″, 169-pounder with offers from Auburn and Clemson . . . and the school he committed to in April of 2018, Alabama. Quarterback Paul Tyson and offensive tackle Pierce Quick are two 2019 guys from Hewitt-Trussville who signed with Alabama, so it’s a pipeline for the Crimson Tide. I don’t imagine a Michigan offer will do much here.

OFF THE BOARD

Aidan Keanaaina – DT – Denver (CO) Mullen: Keanaaina committed to Notre Dame.

Kevin Pyne – OT – Milford (MA) Milford: Pyne committed to Boston College, which is odd for a top-100 prospect.

MISCELLANEY

Here’s a list of visitors for this coming weekend, including a bunch of 2020 guys (LINK).

Eastern Michigan signed 2019 Columbus (OH) Northland running back John Branham, the brother of 2020 Michigan wide receiver commit Kalil Branham (LINK). That could be a good development in order to keep Kalil committed, since the brothers will be playing FBS ball in neighboring cities.

Sav’ell Smalls – DE – Seattle (WA) Garfield: Smalls is a 6’3″, 230 lb. prospect who’s a 5-star, the #1 outside linebacker, and #4 overall. He left Michigan out of his top 12.

Nightly Roundup: February 13, 2019

Even though Pep Hamilton is leaving Michigan for an XFL job, Michigan is still paying him through this June (LINK).

Former San Diego State and Michigan head coach Brady Hoke is headed back to San Diego State . . . as the defensive line coach (LINK). Yes, it’s a bit rough to go from being the head coach of the all-time winningest program in the country to defensive line coach of Marshall Faulk University. But I still like the guy, and I respect the fact that the guy just likes to coach. Sometimes I think about how long I’m going to coach, and I can see myself getting older and still wanting to be involved in the game, even if it’s at a lower level.

New Michigan quarterbacks coach Ben McDaniels is making decent money (LINK).

Windy City Blue’s favorite writer talks about the status of the interior offensive line for 2019 (LINK).

I’ll be honest: I don’t know why all of these plays below are called “smart,” but they’re fun nonetheless.
