It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a recruiting update. There’s only so much time in the week, and Michigan recruiting has been pretty slow, anyway. But enough stuff has built up by this point that I think I should clear the cache.

COMMITMENTS

Washington (DC) St. John’s quarterback Kevin Doyle committed to Michigan (LINK).

Hit the jump for some new offers and some guys who committed elsewhere.

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2018
Clearwater (FL) Catholic Central wide receiver Amari Burney was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’1″, 205 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Florida, Louisville, Miami, and Wisconsin, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #16 wide receiver, and #120 overall. He’s a thickly built kid who’s a possession type of receiver.

Bradenton (FL) Braden River cornerback Tyrone Collins was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’10”, 164 lb. prospect whose lone other offer comes from Boston College and Florida Atlantic, among others. He claims a 4.5 forty. He’s a very slight, quick cover corner with some good playmaking ability, and he’s not afraid of contact, either.

Chicago (IL) Mt. Carmel cornerback Houston Griffith was offered by Michigan when he visited two weekends ago. He’s a 6’0″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Arkansas, Florida State, Illinois, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #7 cornerback, and #72 overall. Griffith is a physical corner, though his highlights do not necessarily show a guy who’s the #72 overall player in the country. He’s the son of former Illinois and NFL fullback Howard Griffith.

Hit the jump for several other new offers in the class of 2018.
