Recruiting Update: May 21, 2018

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Richmond (VA) Henrico wide receiver Jahad Carter, a Virginia Tech commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 185 lb. prospect who also holds offers from South Carolina and Syracuse, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #73 athlete, and #773 overall. He has been committed to the Hokies since September of 2017.

St. Louis (MO) Trinity Catholic offensive guard Ira Henry was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 320-pounder with offers from Alabama, Florida, Illinois, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #73 offensive tackle, and #845 overall.

Madison (AL) Bob Jones cornerback Jaydon Hill was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 172 lb. corner with offers from Nebraska, South Carolina, Texas, and Texas A&M, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #26 cornerback, and #294 overall. He had 5 interceptions and 26 pass breakups as a junior in 2017. I really like his style of play and I think he would fit in well in Michigan’s defensive scheme.

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.

Hit the jump for several more visitors from the 2019, 2020, and 2021 classes.

Clayton (OH) Northmont DE Gabe Newburg (image via 247 Sports)

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.
