2019

Jay Amburgey – OT – Reynoldsburg (OH) Reynoldsburg: Amburgey is a 6’5″, 280 lb. prospect with offers from mostly MAC schools, plus Cincinnati and Syracuse. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #117 offensive tackle, and #1470 overall. He’s probably hoping for a Michigan offer, though Michigan’s recent offensive line commitments probably make that unlikely.

Karsen Barnhart – OG – Paw Paw (MI) Paw Paw: Barnhart is a 6’4″, 282 lb. prospect with offers from Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, and Nebraska, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #45 offensive tackle, and #431 overall. Barnhart is scheduled to announce a commitment later this week, and considering that he has scheduled a return visit to Michigan after his commitment, that choice seems fairly obviously (unless the Jack Stewart commitment changes things). UPDATE: It appears the Stewart commitment has changed things, and Barnhart is pushing back his commitment.

Devin Boddie – CB – Memphis (TN) Whitehaven: Boddie is a 5’11”, 165-pounder with offers from Georgia Tech, Louisville, Vanderbilt, and Virginia, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #56 athlete, and #615 overall.

With the cancellation of the spring game, it’s unclear how many of these visits will still take place, how many will be rescheduled, and how many will be canceled altogether. I’ll leave this info here until I hear something one way or another on each of these players.

2018

Mustapha Muhammad – TE – Missouri City (TX) Ridge Point: Muhammad signed with Michigan in February.

Christian Turner – RB – Buford (GA) Buford: Turner signed with Michigan in February (LINK).

Julius Welschof – DE – Germany: Welschof already signed his National Letter of Intent to Michigan (LINK).

He’s a 3-star, the #19 tight end, and #439 overall. Right now he has three Crystal Ball predictions, all for Clemson. This is his official visit.

Rod Heard – CB – Farmington Hills (MI) Harrison: Heard is 5’10”, 170 lbs. and committed to Northwestern last week. He’s a 3-star, the #89 cornerback, #918 overall, and #24 in the state. It’s unclear if he still plans to visit after his recent commitment.

Marcus Hicks – DE – Wichita (KS) Northwest: Hicks is a 6’5″, 236 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #15 weakside end, and #255 overall. He actually visited March 18 into March 19, but he was supposed to visit later in the week, which is why I put him on this list. As a junior in 2017, he put up 63 tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss, and 10 sacks. Right now 100% of the Crystal Ball picks are for Oklahoma.
