2019

Alex Bales – K – Westfield (IN) Westfield: Bales is a 6’0″, 168 lb. prospect with no offers at this time.

Lewis Cine – S – Cedar Hill (TX) Trinity: Cine is a 6’2″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Penn State, and Texas, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #3 safety, and #50 overall. Right now his crystal balls are 52% in favor of Penn State with the other 48% going to Georgia. When Michigan began recruiting him, he was in the northeast (Massachusetts) where defensive coordinator Don Brown has a lot of connections. He took his official visit to Michigan in June. UPDATE: Cine was unable to visit due to transportation issues.

Mica Gelb – OT – Washington (DC) Woodrow Wilson: Gelb is a 6’6″, 285 lb. prospect

Jalen McGaughy – LB – Detroit (MI) King: McGaughy is a 6’3″, 195 lb. prospect who is committed to Northern Illinois. He also has offers from Minnesota and Missouri, along with a few other MAC schools. He’s a 3-star, the #158 wide receiver, and #1338 overall.

Gabe Newburg – DE – Clayton (OH) Northmont: Newburg is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Kortez Toles – CB – Grand Blanc (MI) Grand Blanc: Toles is a 6’3″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Bowling Green and Central Michigan. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #149 cornerback, and #1434 overall.

Joey Velazquez – LB – Columbus (OH) St. Francis DeSales: Velazquez is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Tyrece Woods – DE – Belleville (MI) Belleville: Woods is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Hit the jump for a bunch of visitors from the 2020, 2021, and 2022 classes.

2019

Jay Amburgey – OT – Reynoldsburg (OH) Reynoldsburg: Amburgey is a 6’5″, 280 lb. prospect with offers from mostly MAC schools, plus Cincinnati and Syracuse. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #117 offensive tackle, and #1470 overall. He’s probably hoping for a Michigan offer, though Michigan’s recent offensive line commitments probably make that unlikely.

Karsen Barnhart – OG – Paw Paw (MI) Paw Paw: Barnhart is a 6’4″, 282 lb. prospect with offers from Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, and Nebraska, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #45 offensive tackle, and #431 overall. Barnhart is scheduled to announce a commitment later this week, and considering that he has scheduled a return visit to Michigan after his commitment, that choice seems fairly obviously (unless the Jack Stewart commitment changes things). UPDATE: It appears the Stewart commitment has changed things, and Barnhart is pushing back his commitment.

Devin Boddie – CB – Memphis (TN) Whitehaven: Boddie is a 5’11”, 165-pounder with offers from Georgia Tech, Louisville, Vanderbilt, and Virginia, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #56 athlete, and #615 overall.

Hit the jump for several more visitors from the 2019, 2020, and 2021 classes.

Thanks to Peter for the generous Paypal donation last week! That was a very pleasant surprise.


ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Clayton (OH) Northmont defensive end Gabe Newburg was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 230-pounder with offers from Cincinnati, Michigan State, Rutgers, and some MAC programs. He’s a 3-star, the #53 weakside end, and #798 overall. Newburg visited Michigan two weekends ago and was offered on the visit. Northmont is the alma mater of former Michigan linebacker Kaleb Ringer, who transferred to Georgia State. After the offer, a bunch of Crystal Ball picks came in for Newburg to Michigan, now up to 100% (13 total picks).

Columbus (OH) St. Francis DeSales safety Joey Velazquez was offered by Michigan. The 6’0″, 205-pounder is committed to Ohio State for baseball, and he is unranked as a football prospect at this point. He claims a 4.54 forty, a 4.1 shuttle, a 390 lb. bench press, and a 570 lb. squat. He’s a good all around athlete who could project to strong safety or Viper at Michigan.

St. Louis (MO) St. John Vianney wide receiver Kyren Williams was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’10, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Stanford, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #44 running back, and #551 overall. Williams has a compact, stout build that could see him play running back or slot receiver at the next level.

He’ll be visiting on April 3.
