TRANSFERS

Devin Asiasi, TE (UCLA): Asiasi sat out the season due to NCAA transfer rules. From what I can gather, he’s pegged to be the #2 tight end this season.

Ian Bunting, TE (California): Bunting will be a fifth year senior at Cal this fall.

Brian Cole, S (Mississippi State): Cole is listed as a 6’2″, 210 lb. redshirt junior safety at Mississippi State and is projected to be the Bulldogs’ starting nickel player. He spent last season at East Mississippi Community College.

Kekoa Crawford, WR: Crawford will transfer, though his destination is unknown.

Kingston Davis, RB (UAB): Davis is a 6’0″, 245 lb. running back at UAB after spending last season at Independence Community College in Kansas. He looks to be one of the featured players on the upcoming season of Last Chance U on Netflix.

Ja’Raymond Hall, OG (Central Michigan): Hall announced that he would transfer to Central Michigan in the off-season, which means he will have to sit out 2018 due to NCAA transfer rules.

Elysee Mbem-Bosse, LB: It’s unknown at this point whether Mbem-Bosse will continue his football career.

Kareem Walker, RB: Walker will transfer, though his destination is unknown.

Keith Washington, CB (West Virginia): Washington, who played this past season at Co-Lin, has transferred to West Virginia, where he’s listed as a 6’0″, 173 lb. redshirt junior cornerback.

Maurice Ways, WR (California): Ways will be a fifth year senior at Cal this fall.

Visitors: June 19-25, 2017

I updated the visitors list with a bunch of players who camped over the weekend. It was too hard to tell from social media who was camping and who was just visiting, so I clumped them all together.


2018

Emil Ekiyor – OG – Indianapolis (IN) Cathedral:

Aidan Hutchinson – DE – Dearborn (MI) Divine Child:

Jalen Mayfield – OT – Grand Rapids (MI) Catholic Central:

Cameron McGrone – LB – Indianapolis (IN) Lawrence Central: McGrone is a 6’1″, 215 lb. prospect with offers from Indiana, Notre Dame, Tennessee, and Wisconsin, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #17 outside linebacker, and #251 overall. He does not have a Michigan offer yet, but he is likely to get one on this trip.

Raiqwon O’Neal – OT – Conway (SC) Conway: O’Neal is a 6’5″, 265 lb. prospect with offers from Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, and South Carolina, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #70 offensive tackle, and #876 overall. He runs extremely well for a big guy, and I’m very surprised that he’s only the #876 overall recruit in the country. Conway is the alma mater of former Michigan wide receiver Junior Hemingway.

Hit the jump for several more 2018 and 2019 visitors.
