2018 Season Countdown: #104 Adam Fakih

Name: Adam Fakih
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 210 lbs.
High school: Beverly Hills (MI) Country Day
Position: Linebacker
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #41
Last year: I did not rank Fakih. He redshirted.

I like Fakih, and I think he might end up being a Michael Wroblewski-like player before his career is finished in Ann Arbor. Depending on how hard he works in the weight room, he’s a guy who could earn some playing time. He’s a heady player who takes good angles, knows how to tackle, and can run a little bit. Plus he has the frame to add the necessary weight. Without a spring game, it’s tough to see what walk-ons are creeping up the depth chart, but Fakih has potential.

Prediction: Backup linebacker

2018 Season Countdown: #105 Spencer Dickow

Name: Spencer Dickow
Height: 6’0″
Weight: 237 lbs.
High school: Bloomfield Hills (MI) Brother Rice
Position: Fullback
Class: Redshirt junior
Jersey number: #39
Last year: I did not rank Dickow. He did not see game action.

It’s time for a Spencer Dickow sighting. It’s unclear how the fullback situation will play out beyond the clear #1 guy Ben Mason, and even he will be recovering from a spring knee injury for the fall. And without a spring game from which to judge, this is purely a stab in the dark. But I have to root for a guy who was a high school offensive guard and has shed some pounds to try to be a fullback at Michigan. Yep, Dickow was one of Alex Malzone’s five offensive linemen in high school, and now the walk-on has outlasted the scholarship QB. When you’re down at #105 on this list, you’re unlikely to be a big factor, but here’s hoping for a few offensive snaps for Dickow.

Prediction: Backup fullback

Bonus: Here’s Dickow playing OG in high school.

Recruiting Update: May 14, 2018

Fairfield (OH) Fairfield TE Erick All (image via NJ.com)

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Albany (LA) Albany defensive tackle Latrell Alexander was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’2″, 285 lb. prospect with offers from Houston, Kentucky, and Louisiana-Lafayette, among others. He’s currently unranked, and it’s rare to uncover an unranked player with Power Five offers at this point in the recruiting cycle.

Fairfield (OH) Fairfield tight end Erick All was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 225-pounder with offers from Iowa, Kentucky, Louisville, and Wisconsin, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #27 tight end, and #773 overall. Along with Gary Cooper (see below), these two new tight end offers after word started leaking out that top tight end target Luke Deal might end up going to Clemson instead of picking the Wolverines.

Miami (FL) Columbus tight end Gary Cooper was offered by Michigan. At 6’3″ and 230 lbs., he has offers from Florida, Indiana, Oklahoma, and Ole Miss, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #48 tight end, and #1282 overall. He attends the alma mater of Michigan linebacker Josh Uche.

Hit the jump for some other new offers and some guys who went off the board.
