2018 Recruiting Update: January 12, 2018

Ft. Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas defensive end Nik Bonitto committed to Oklahoma. Bonitto was very high on Michigan early, and then Michigan stopped contacting him. It seemed at one time that he would end up with the Wolverines, so it would be interesting to know why Michigan didn’t want him anymore, especially if he turns into a good college player, too.

Howell (NJ) Blair Academy defensive end Jayson Oweh committed to Penn State. He’s a relatively late bloomer since he has only been playing football for two years, but he was good enough in that time to get offers from Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Penn State, among others.

Moultrie (GA) Colquitt County linebacker J.J. Peterson committed to Tennessee at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Michigan was never really a factor.

Hit the jump for more on the 2018 class.

Melbourne (FL) Holy Trinity Episcopal running back Jashaun Corbin was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 191 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Florida State, North Carolina, and Oregon, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #41 running back, and #700 overall. As a junior in 2017, he had 107 carries for 1,022 yards and 11 touchdowns; he also had 25 catches for 619 yards and 7 touchdowns. Corbin actually looks like a decent prospect, but if you watch his highlights, I’m not promising good football. Small crowds, lollygagging, and such will ensue.

Frisco (TX) Wakeland offensive tackle Rafiti Ghirmai was offered by Michigan. Ghirmai is a 6’4″, 290-pounder with offers from Alabama, Baylor, Florida, Georgia, Oregon, TCU, and Texas, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #26 offensive tackle, and #358 overall. He looks like he might be a guard at the next level.

Stockbridge (GA) Woodland offensive tackle James Ohonba was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 350 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #20 offensive tackle, and #264 overall. He’s a big, burly lineman who looks like he too might end up playing offensive guard in college, since he doesn’t move extremely well at 350.

Hit the jump for some more new 2018, 2019, and 2020 offers, plus some tidbits.
