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.

Miami (FL) Central running back James Cook decommitted from Florida State. He’s a 4-star, the #3 running back, and #33 overall. At 5’11” and 181 lbs., he runs a 4.51 forty. The brother of Dalvin Cook, he was expected to continue the Cook legacy at FSU, but now it appears he’s likely to end up signing with Georgia.

Ontario (CA) Colony tight end Michael Ezeike was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 210 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, UCLA, and USC, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #17 tight end, and #413 overall. This appears to be a wide-open race right now, but Michigan does need a tight end or two in this recruiting class.

Valdosta (GA) Lonwdes offensive tackle Jalen Goss was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 250 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Maryland, Mississippi State, and Oregon, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #66 offensive tackle, and #781 overall. He’s a teammate of 2018 running back Michael Barrett, whom Michigan is recruiting as a running back and Wildcat quarterback.

Hit the jump for a couple more new offers, along with several players who committed elsewhere.
