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.

Ex-Wolverine Updates: 2017 Pre-season Edition

TRANSFERS

OG Kyle Bosch: Bosch is expected to start at offensive guard for West Virginia. He’s currently ranked as the #11 offensive guard in the 2018 draft class by NFL Draft Scout.

WR/S Brian Cole: Cole spent the 2016 season at East Mississippi Community College, the school that’s the subject of the Netflix docuseries Last Chance U. Cole isn’t featured prominently, though he makes a couple cameos. Anyway, he made 54 tackles, 1 sack, 3 forced fumbles, and 2 fumble recoveries at safety. He enrolled at Mississippi State in January but he will have to redshirt this year to get in compliance with academic requirements.

RB Kingston Davis: Davis ran 2 times for 17 yards against Hawaii in last year’s season opener, and now he’s transferring to Independence Community College in Kansas. The assumption is that he’ll try to transfer back up to an FBS program in 2018.

Hit the jump for many, many more updates.

3-13-17 Recruiting Update: May the Schwartz be with You

Pick the score of the men’s basketball game vs. Oklahoma for a chance at an Amazon gift card (LINK).


ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2018

Melbourne (FL) Holy Trinity Episcopal running back Jashaun Corbin was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 191 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Florida State, North Carolina, and Oregon, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #41 running back, and #700 overall. As a junior in 2017, he had 107 carries for 1,022 yards and 11 touchdowns; he also had 25 catches for 619 yards and 7 touchdowns. Corbin actually looks like a decent prospect, but if you watch his highlights, I’m not promising good football. Small crowds, lollygagging, and such will ensue.

Frisco (TX) Wakeland offensive tackle Rafiti Ghirmai was offered by Michigan. Ghirmai is a 6’4″, 290-pounder with offers from Alabama, Baylor, Florida, Georgia, Oregon, TCU, and Texas, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #26 offensive tackle, and #358 overall. He looks like he might be a guard at the next level.

Stockbridge (GA) Woodland offensive tackle James Ohonba was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 350 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #20 offensive tackle, and #264 overall. He’s a big, burly lineman who looks like he too might end up playing offensive guard in college, since he doesn’t move extremely well at 350.

Hit the jump for some more new 2018, 2019, and 2020 offers, plus some tidbits.
