Oak Park (MI) Oak Park offensive tackle Ja’Raymond Hall committed to Michigan (LINK).
ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2016
Thompson’s Station (TN) Independence wide receiver Nate Johnson was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’11”, 175 lb. prospect with offers from Miami, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #65 wide receiver, and #371 overall. He claims a 4.47 forty and a 4.05 shuttle. As a senior in 2015, he caught 87 passes for 1,710 yards and 26 touchdowns.
Hit the jump for several more 2017, 2018, and 2019 offers; a couple commitments elsewhere; and some random tidbits.
ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2017
Miami (FL) Columbus cornerback Trajan Bandy was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’9″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, and Tennessee, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #29 cornerback, and #316 overall. He claims a 4.53 forty. Bandy is not very tall, but he has outstanding leaping ability to make up for it. He also changes direction well and is very physical. Miami has not offered yet, but that seems to be the school he covets the most.
Plaquemine (LA) Plaquemine safety Todd Harris was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 190 lb. prospect with offers from Georgia, LSU, and Miami, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #3 safety, and #64 overall. Harris is a big-time safety prospect who fits the bill as a top-100 prospect – good speed, good ball skills, a solid tackler, and a heady player. Naturally, for someone from the Bayou State, he is expected to go to LSU.
Los Angeles (CA) Salesian cornerback Deommodore Lenoir was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 175 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona State, Miami, Oklahoma, and Washington, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #9 cornerback, and #66 overall. He claims a 4.46 forty. He recently named Washington as his leader.
McKinney (TX) Boyd offensive guard Tyrese Robinson was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 305 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Texas, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #3 offensive guard, and #87 overall. Robinson is a mauler who plays right tackle in high school, but he projects better on the inside. He does not have the best lateral quickness, but he is a high-quality drive blocker with very good size and the ability to get to the second level.
Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas linebacker Drew White was offered by Michigan. White is a 6’1″, 215 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati, Florida Atlantic, and Temple. He’s a 247 Sports 2-star, the #52 outside linebacker, and #705 overall. Despite being listed as an outside linebacker, he would be an inside ‘backer at Michigan, at least if Michigan continues running the 3-4 base fronts that Jim Harbaugh has typically run. He’s a teammate of 2017 wide receiver Trevon Grimes, defensive tackle Kedonis Haslem, and wide receiver Josh Palmer.
ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2018
Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas defensive end Nik Bonitto was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Georgia, LSU, and Miami, among others. He has named Miami as his favorite.
Fort Lauderdale (FL) American Heritage cornerback Tyson Campbell was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’2″, 182 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, and Miami, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #9 cornerback, and #84 overall. He has a lot of work to do on his technique if he wants to play cornerback, and he may outgrow the position since he already has good size as a sophomore. However, he has very good speed, is an asset on special teams, and shows several good hustle plays on his highlight film. Michigan has already offered several of Campbell’s teammates, including 2017 running back Kyshaun Bryan, offensive guard Kai-Leon Herbert, offensive tackle Tedarrell Slaton, safety Marco Wilson, and 2018 cornerback Patrick Surtain, Jr.
ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019
Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas running back Daniel Carter was offered by Michigan. Carter is a 5’11”, 185 lb. prospect with an offer from West Virginia. He claims a 4.7 forty, which doesn’t sound all that fast, but he’s only a high school freshman. Regardless, he’s kind of a thickly built kid who should grow into more of a physical runner than a speedy, shifty back.
Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas linebacker Anthony Solomon was offered by Michigan. Solomon is a 6’1″, 185 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, and LSU, among others. Solomon is a classmate of 2019 running back Daniel Carter (see above).
OFF THE BOARD
Jacksonville (FL) Bartram Trail quarterback Joey Gatewood, a 2018 prospect, committed to Auburn. This was a bit of a surprise since he was considered an early Florida State lean. But there’s a long time between now and February of 2018.
Evanston (IL) Evanston defensive tackle Naquan Jones committed to Michigan State. This is the second time he has committed to the Spartans. There were some rumors floating around of potential academic issues, which were going to prevent him from going to MSU. Those things must have been cleared up since then.
Here’s a list of visitors for this upcoming weekend (LINK).
Pembroke Pines (FL) Flanagan linebacker Devin Bush, Jr. will be announcing his commitment on December 16th.
Euless (TX) Trinity defensive tackle Chris Daniels will be committing on December 18th, which is next Friday. The odds are in favor of Oklahoma.
