2019

Karsen Barnhart – OT – Paw Paw (MI) Paw Paw: Barnhart is a 6’4″, 282 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona State, Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, and Nebraska, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #46 offensive tackle, and #427 overall. Right now all six Crystal Ball predictions are in favor of the Spartans.

Michael Fletcher – DE – Flint (MI) Carman-Ainsworth: Fletcher is a 6’6″, 240-pounder. He has offers from Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Michigan State, and Wisconsin, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #28 strongside end, and #352 overall. Right now his Crystal Ball situation is 57% for Michigan State, 43% for Michigan.

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.

Hit the jump for several more visitors.

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Belleville (MI) Belleville cornerback¬†Julian Barnett, a Michigan State commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’1″, 186-pounder who claims a 4.41 forty, along with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oregon, among others. Barnett could play corner or wide receiver at the next level. There has been much consternation from Michigan fans about why the Wolverines hadn’t offered earlier, and the pursuit has unfortunately begun after he committed to MSU in late December.

Lakeville (MN) North offensive tackle Bryce Benhart was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’7″, 285 lb. prospect with offers from Minnesota, Notre Dame, UCLA, and Wisconsin, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #43 offensive tackle, and #381 overall. The early expectation is that he will end up at Wisconsin.

Buford (GA) Buford running back Derrian Brown was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’11”, 174 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oregon, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #13 running back, and #143 overall. Brown is a teammate of 2018 Michigan signee Christian Turner, which is quite a one-two punch in the backfield.

Hit the jump for a bunch of other new offers.
