2018

Griffin Korican – OG – Seattle (WA) O’Dea: Korican is a 6’5″, 295 lb. prospect who is currently committed to Oregon State as a preferred walk-on. Though he signed a financial aid agreement in February, the lack of scholarship money means he can still attend another school. He plans to make a final decision on where he will play football after he takes the visit on June 2. He’s a 247 Sports 2-star, the #118 offensive guard, and #2595 overall.

2020

Harrison Bailey – QB – Marietta (GA) Marietta: Bailey is a 6’5″, 228 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #2 pro-style quarterback, and #69 overall.  As a sophomore in 2017, he completed 126/203 passes for 1,824 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. There are four crystal ball picks in right now, with two for Michigan, one for Alabama, and one for Florida.

2018 Recruiting Update: The Dump

Leesburg (GA) Lee County LB Otis Reese

A couple days ago, I was hit with the annual $1,300 bill for web hosting from Flywheel. It reminded me how few site issues I’ve had since changing to Flywheel. Anyway, if you are capable and so inclined, please consider using the Paypal button on the sidebar to donate a few dollars to keep the site running. As always, you can also click on the Amazon links and buy something within 24 hours, and TTB will get a percentage. I appreciate all the support you can give. Thanks!


COMMITMENTS

Rochester (MI) Adams cornerback Vincent Gray committed to Michigan (LINK).

Northville (MI) Northville kicker Jake Moody committed to Michigan as a grayshirt.

DECOMMITMENTS

Washington (DC) St. John’s quarterback Kevin Doyle decommitted from Michigan (LINK).

Leesburg (GA) Lee County linebacker Otis Reese flipped from Michigan to Georgia. He’s a 4-star, the #5 outside linebacker, and #87 overall. Michigan’s coaching staff found out that he was flipping when he announced on the morning of National Signing Day, which is a . . . uhhh . . . less than ideal behavior from someone who has been committed to you for 1.5 years. Michigan’s coaches took heat for yanking offers late in the process previously (see: Erik Swenson), but at least those players had a chance to make other plans. If you wait until the last day to decide, somebody’s getting screwed.

Hit the jump for all the guys who committed elsewhere, along with some random bits.

With the early signing period that took place over three days in December, there’s a lot less hype about this year’s “National Signing Day” on February 7. Personally, I’m not a fan of hyping up the early signing period a week before Christmas, because there’s so much else going on at that time of year. Of course, the NCAA shouldn’t make their rules based on the lives of bloggers, but my personal preference would lean toward a time in February when not much else is happening.

Anyway, for those of you still paying attention to the few players who are still left on the board, here’s a look at some of Michigan’s top targets:
