He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #7 cornerback, and #65 overall. Long took an official visit to Michigan for the Michigan State game in October, and he has an official visit scheduled to Washington for mid-January; those are his top two schools. Michigan has been recruiting Long hard for the entire recruiting cycle, telling him that he’s their #1 target at the cornerback position. They have also told him that they want to use him like Jabrill Peppers, as a defensive back, receiver, and special teams player.

Michigan will reportedly hire Boston College defensive coordinator Don Brown

Boston College defensive coordinator Don Brown (right) will hold the same job at Michigan

I will admit that I am not very familiar with Boston College defensive coordinator Don Brown, who will reportedly be named Michigan’s new defensive coordinator. He spent the last three seasons as the Eagles’ coordinator and coached the linebackers. Brown is 60 years old and has spent most of his career at the lower levels of football (Ivy League, Division I-AA, FCS, etc.). He was UMass’s head coach from 2004-2008 before behind defensive coordinator at Maryland (2009-2010), Connecticut (2011-2012), and then Boston College.

Here are some of his numbers from this past season:

2015: #4 in scoring defense, #2 in rush defense, #8 in pass defense, #1 in total defense, #20 in sacks, #1 in tackles for loss, #38 in interceptions, #5 in Defensive FEI, #3 in Defensive S&P+
