2022 Recruiting Update: March 13, 2018

Ty Simpson (image via Twitter)

PICK THE SCORE: Over on the message board, I have posted a thread for you to earn a prize if you pick the correct score of Thursday’s NCAA Tourney game (LINK).


My friends, the 2022 offer board has been unveiled. It seems kind of crazy since it’s almost literally four (4!!!) years away from National Signing Day 2022, but that’s where we are right now.

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2022

Brunswick (GA) Brunswick wide receiver Syveion Ellis was offered by Michigan. He’s supposedly 6’4″ and 182 lbs. right now, so your guess is as good as mine whether he plays wide receiver, tight end, linebacker, safety, or defensive end. But here are some highlights to show you what 8th grade football looks like:

Martin (TN) Westview quarterback Ty Simpson was offered by Michigan. He’s 6’1″, 170 lbs., and this is his first football offer. He’s also quite a baseball player and considering playing baseball in college, too. His father was an all-conference pitcher at Southern Miss, and he also happens to be the head coach at Tennessee-Martin. Ty visited Michigan last Tuesday, which is when he picked up the offer from the Wolverines. I don’t have any highlights for Simpson, so you’re just going to have to settle for a video of Cody Paul:

FYI: Cody Paul was a highlight star back in 2007, but he went to D-II Chadron State for college when no FBS or even FCS schools offered him. At 5’5″ and 170 lbs., he was a backup running back, kickoff returner, and punt returner. He had a solid college career, finishing his senior year in 2016 with 485 rushing yards (6.1 YPC) and 4 touchdowns, along with 21 punt returns for 351 yards (16.7 yards/return) and 2 touchdowns.
