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.

Hit the jump for more.

Miami (FL) Northwestern linebacker Samuel Brooks, Jr. was offered by Michigan. Brooks is a 6’2″, 195 lb. prospect with offers from Kentucky, Louisville, and South Florida, among others. He plays with his hand down at times and is more of a pass rusher, so it will be interesting to see how his body develops and how he’ll be able to be used.

Montvale (NJ) St. Joseph defensive end Howard Cross III was offered by Michigan. Cross is a 6’2″, 240 lb. prospect with offers from Maryland, North Carolina State, and Rutgers, among others. He’s the son of former Alabama and New York Giants tight end Howard Cross.
