Gastonia (NC) Hunter Huss cornerback Tony Davis, a Duke commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’1″, 186 lb. prospect with offers from Duke, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #31 cornerback, and #355 overall. He committed to the Blue Devils in December of 2017, but two crystal ball picks have come in since that time that have him flipping to North Carolina.
Oakton (VA) Flint Hill running back Jordan Houston was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’9″, 190-pounder with offers from Maryland, Penn State, Pitt, and Virginia Tech, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #7 all-purpose back, and #632 overall. As a junior in 2017, he had 1,971 rushing yards and 25 touchdowns, and he averaged 34.0 yards/catch on 10 receptions, adding 4 touchdowns. All eight crystal ball picks have him heading to Virginia Tech.
Hit the jump for several players who went off the board this week.
OFF THE BOARD
Crandall (TX) Crandall center Branson Bragg committed to Stanford. He’s the #3 center in the country and #140 overall.
Hollywood (FL) Chaminade-Madonna cornerback Te’Cory Couch committed to Miami. He decommitted from Michigan about a week prior, and this was the expected landing spot once he backed off his pledge.
Charlotte (NC) Providence linebacker Osita Ekwonu committed to Notre Dame. He’s the #7 inside linebacker and #190 overall.
Hyattsville (MD) DeMatha Catholic safety DeMarcco Hellams committed to Alabama. Also a potential college wide receiver, he’s the #5 safety and #101 overall player in the class.
River Rouge (MI) River Rouge defensive end Ruke Orhorhoro committed to Clemson. When he put out his top group, a lot of people said Orhorhoro was not a take for Clemson and thought he would pledge to Michigan. I guess that notion goes out the door at this point. Regardless, he’s the #16 player in the state of Michigan. Listed as a weakside end, I doubt he stays there in college when he’s already listed at 271 lbs.
Warwick (RI) Bishop Hendricken offensive tackle Xavier Truss committed to Georgia. This was a surprise to everyone, because all 16 crystal ball picks were in favor of Penn State. And I thought Michigan was higher on his list than Georgia. But he took an unofficial visit to Athens this past weekend, so things can change quickly on visits. That’s why it’s important not to downplay getting a visit from a big-time player, whether it’s official or unofficial. Truss was a high school teammate of Michigan defensive end Kwity Paye.
Oxnard (CA) Oxnard wide receiver Jaron “J.R.” Waters committed to Oregon. Michigan offered him last week, so that flirtation didn’t last long.
Crystal Lake (IL) South offensive tackle Trevor Keegan named Michigan to his top six. He’s a 4-star, the #17 offensive tackle, and #144 overall.
