COMMITMENT

Clayton (OH) Northmont defensive end Gabe Newburg committed to Michigan (LINK).

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Seattle (WA) Rainier Beach offensive tackle Nathaniel Kalepo, a Washington commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’6″, 300-pounder who has been committed to the Huskies since August of 2017; he also has offers from Oregon, UCLA, and USC. He’s a 3-star, the #40 offensive tackle, and #395 overall.

Miami (FL) South Dade wide receiver Frank Ladson, Jr. was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 170 lb. prospect with offers from almost every big-time program, including the three in-state powers. He’s a 5-star, the #3 wide receiver, and #15 overall. Eight of the nine Crystal Ball picks have him going to Clemson.

Chandler (AZ) Chandler tight end Brayden Liebrock was offered by Michigan. He’s 6’5″, 215 lbs. with offers from Alabama, Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, and Notre Dame, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #13 tight end, and #399 overall. As a junior in 2017, he caught 39 passes for 600 yards (15.4 yards/catch) and 5 touchdowns.

Hit the jump for several more new offers and some guys who committed to other schools.

Hoover (AL) Hoover wide receiver George Pickens, an Auburn commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 190-pounder with offers from Georgia and LSU, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #25 wide receiver, and #160 overall.

Spring (TX) Klein Collins running back Isaiah Spiller, who decommitted from Oklahoma, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 193 lb. prospect with offers from Arkansas, Nebraska, Oregon, and Texas A&M, among others. The decommitment came a week after visiting Texas A&M, and they lead in his Crystal Ball choices right now. Michigan and Penn State took the decommitment as an opportunity to offer, so it’s unclear right now whether they will factor in down the stretch.

New Canaan (CT) New Canaan offensive tackle Jack Stewart was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 280-pounder with offers from Arizona, Boston College, Connecticut, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #84 offensive tackle, and #1001 overall. Though listed as a tackle, I think Stewart is more of a guard at the next level.

OFF THE BOARD

Katy (TX) Taylor defensive end Braedon Mowry committed to Texas A&M. Mowry had previously named Michigan to his top seven.

Ft. Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas linebacker Anthony Solomon committed to Miami. Michigan was his early favorite and had 75% of his Crystal Ball picks, but the coaching staff seemed to back off of him, for whatever reason. He’s a 4-star, the #12 outside linebacker, and #175 overall.

Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy center Charles Turner committed to LSU. The #6 center in the country visited Michigan just a few days before committing to LSU.

Trussville (AL) Hewitt-Trussville quarterback Paul Tyson committed to Alabama. This was very unsurprising, considering he’s the great grandson of former Alabama head coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. Tyson visited Michigan in mid-March, but there was little belief that the Wolverines would land the #7 pro-style quarterback.

Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei defensive tackle¬†Keyon Ware-Hudson committed to Oregon. He started off looking like a defensive end, but he has added about 65 lbs. since then, and now he’s listed at 6’2″, 305 lbs. He’s currently the #15 defensive tackle and #233 overall.

MISCELLANEY
