2018 Recruiting Update: The Dump

Leesburg (GA) Lee County LB Otis Reese

A couple days ago, I was hit with the annual $1,300 bill for web hosting from Flywheel. It reminded me how few site issues I’ve had since changing to Flywheel. Anyway, if you are capable and so inclined, please consider using the Paypal button on the sidebar to donate a few dollars to keep the site running. As always, you can also click on the Amazon links and buy something within 24 hours, and TTB will get a percentage. I appreciate all the support you can give. Thanks!


COMMITMENTS

Rochester (MI) Adams cornerback Vincent Gray committed to Michigan (LINK).

Northville (MI) Northville kicker Jake Moody committed to Michigan as a grayshirt.

DECOMMITMENTS

Washington (DC) St. John’s quarterback Kevin Doyle decommitted from Michigan (LINK).

Leesburg (GA) Lee County linebacker Otis Reese flipped from Michigan to Georgia. He’s a 4-star, the #5 outside linebacker, and #87 overall. Michigan’s coaching staff found out that he was flipping when he announced on the morning of National Signing Day, which is a . . . uhhh . . . less than ideal behavior from someone who has been committed to you for 1.5 years. Michigan’s coaches took heat for yanking offers late in the process previously (see: Erik Swenson), but at least those players had a chance to make other plans. If you wait until the last day to decide, somebody’s getting screwed.

Hit the jump for all the guys who committed elsewhere, along with some random bits.

COMMITMENTS

Eureka (MO) Eureka running back Hassan Haskins committed to Michigan (LINK).

Bradenton (FL) Braden River defensive end Taylor Upshaw committed to Michigan (LINK).

DECOMMITMENT

Indianapolis (IN) Cathedral offensive guard Emil Ekiyor flipped from Michigan to Alabama.

ADDED TO THE BOARD

Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy center¬†Verdis Brown decommitted from Florida State. At 6’3″, 294 lbs., he could play center, guard, or defensive tackle. He’s rated as a 4-star, the #4 center, and #232 overall. A native of Chicago, it sounds like he may end up at Illinois.

Hit the jump for several more decommitments from other schools, some new offers, and some random bits.

5-31-17 Recruiting Update: French Revolution

Anaheim (CA) Servite safety Julius Irvin

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2018

Charlotte (NC) Mallard Creek defensive tackle Jordan Davis was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’6″, 300-pounder with offers from Florida, Miami, North Carolina, and North Carolina State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #27 defensive tackle, and #297 overall. Mallard Creek is a pretty consistent producer of talent in the state of North Carolina, but Davis seems likely to stay in the south.

Anaheim (CA) Servite safety Julius Irvin was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’2″, 182 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, UCLA, and USC, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #25 safety, and #322 overall. Irvin looks like a combo safety who could play deep or come up into the box to support the run and the short passing game.

Ft. Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas defensive tackle Dejmi Dumervil Jean was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 367 lb. prospect with offers from Louisville, Maryland, Mississippi State, and Oregon, among others. Saying Dumervil Jean is planet-sized is a disservice; he’s built like a gas giant. A pure nose tackle prospect, he hails from perhaps the biggest talent-producing school in the Sunshine State, where Michigan has failed to make inroads despite many attempts to do so.

Hit the jump for another new offer and a couple guys who committed elsewhere.

SITE NEWS: We hit 50 avatars yesterday, so congrats to user #9, OVOXO, on winning the $50 Amazon gift card. Keep uploading avatars if you haven’t done so already. There will be another drawing at #75.


ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2018

Harrisburg (PA) Harrisburg defensive end Micah Parsons decommitted from Penn State. He’s a 5-star, the #1 weakside end, and #3 overall in the 247 Composite. Normally this would seem like good news, except all the Crystal Ball picks coming in are for Ohio State.

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Richmond (TX) Fort Bend Travis wide receiver Arjei Henderson decommitted from Oklahoma. Michigan offered him earlier this month. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #9 wide receiver, and #37 overall. The 6’1″, 179-pounder has also landed offers from Auburn, LSU, Notre Dame, and Tennessee recently.

Hit the jump for several players who went off the board.

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.
