Ex-Wolverine Updates: Pre-season 2015

Former Michigan running back commit Damien Harris is battling for playing time at Alabama

Well, the making of this post included my baptism into the annoying world of WordPress. There are some nice things about WordPress, but I really missed Blogger yesterday morning when I worked on this post from approximately 5:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. – with intermittent breaks for necessities – only to have 50% of it disappear into the ether.

Former QB Russell Bellomy:¬†Bellomy’s coach at the University of Texas-San Antonio, Larry Coker, says that Bellomy is in the running . . . to win the #2 job (LINK). That says a lot about Bellomy’s talent level. If you disagree, consider that the entrenched starter, Blake Bogenschutz, went 22/39 (56.4%) for 282 yards, 0 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions last year.

Former OG Kyle Bosch: Bosch, who received a waiver to play this year after transferring to West Virginia in the off-season, is in a battle to start at offensive guard or potentially tackle this fall.

Former TE commit Pharaoh Brown: Brown, who suffered a nasty knee injury last season, will likely be the starter at tight end again this fall for Oregon. As a junior in 2014, he made 25 catches for 420 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Recruiting Update: October 16, 2014

Detroit (MI) King wide receiver Donnie Corley

Detroit (MI) King wide receiver Donnie Corley was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’2″, 172 lb. player with offers from Arizona State, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Pitt, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #43 wide receiver, #238 overall, and #5 in-state. Corley transferred from Wyandotte (MI) Roosevelt after his sophomore year, so he has increased his exposure while also playing with better talent. Michigan has not forayed into Detroit King often over the last several years, as they have offered (and received a commitment from) just two players since 2008, current slot receiver/kick returner Dennis Norfleet and 2015 Michigan State commit Tyriq Thompson. Corley is a physical wideout who I think can be a solid player at the next level, but I believe Michigan is probably playing slightly from behind in his recruitment.

Hit the jump for an addition to the 2017 recruiting board, some recent commitments elsewhere, and some miscellaneous bits.

Norfolk (VA) Lake Taylor defensive tackle Darnell Ewell was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 280 lb. prospect with offers from Clemson, Miami, Ohio State, Pitt, Tennessee, and Virginia, among others.


Kaplan (LA) Kaplan defensive end Jalen Bates committed to Arizona State. Bates is the cousin of former Michigan linebacker Jonas Mouton, and while Bates had developed a relationship with the staff, he was unlikely to be a Wolverine all along.

Lincolnton (NC) Lincolnton defensive end Darian Roseboro committed to North Carolina State. He originally committed to Michigan, despite the fact that some of his family members wanted him to stay closer to home. With Michigan’s struggles, a 4-0 start for the Wolfpack, and a near upset against Florida State, you can see why he might flip. Roseboro plans to enroll in January, so any attempts to flip him back will have to be hurried. Regardless of any efforts, I imagine he’ll stick with his commitment this time.

Hopewell (VA) Hopewell defensive end Darrell Taylor committed to Tennessee. Michigan was never in the running.

Monaca (PA) Central Valley cornerback Jordan Whitehead committed to Pitt over the likes of Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, and Penn State, among others.

Here’s a list of visitors from last weekend’s game against Penn State (LINK).

Over on Recruiting Season, I updated the profiles of Donnie Corley and 2016 linebacker Daelin Hayes.
