2016 BBQ at the Big House visitors

Najee Harris 869x

Antioch (CA) Antioch RB Najee Harris

The BBQ at the Big House, founded by Rich Rodriguez, has continued through Brady Hoke and now Jim Harbaugh. It has always been a big recruiting weekend with a lot of visitors, although Harbaugh has switched it up a little bit. Instead of having it near the end of July when players are still able to take visits freely, putting it in early August makes it a bit tougher for players to make lengthy travel plans, since a lot of states start practice at the beginning of August. This year’s BBQ at the Big House will supposedly be split up into two events, one on August 6 and one on August 8.

2017

Jordan Anthony – LB – Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy: Anthony is a 6’0″, 220 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #8 outside linebacker, and #113 overall. A Maryland native, he transferred to IMG prior to his junior year. UPDATE: Anthony is no longer planning to visit.

Henry Bainivalu – OT – Sammamish (WA) Skyline: Bainivalu is a 6’6″, 290 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Oregon, UCLA, USC, Washington, and Washington State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #23 offensive tackle, and #182 overall.

Aaron Banks – OT – El Cerrito (CA) El Cerrito: Banks is a 6’7″, 344 lb. prospect with offers from Cal, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, and USC, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #21 offensive tackle, and #167 overall.

Kolin Demens 885x

Detroit (MI) Country Day LB Kolin Demens

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2018
Detroit (MI) Country Day linebacker Kolin Demens was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 205 lb. prospect with only one other offer, which is from Nebraska. The younger brother of former Michigan middle linebacker, Kolin is a lankier outside linebacker type of player.

Tampa (FL) Cambridge Christian offensive tackle Richard Gouraige was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 270 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Miami, and North Carolina, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #5 offensive tackle, and #31 overall. Gouraige has some tantalizing athleticism and could play defensive end or defensive tackle, but he also looks like an ideal left tackle prospect. He was a Maxpreps Freshman All-American.

Hit the jump for several more 2018 offers and some random bits.
