COMMITMENT

Memphis (TN) Lausanne running back Eric Gray committed to Michigan (LINK).

Stuart (FL) Martin wide receiver George Johnson III committed to Michigan (LINK).

OFF THE BOARD

Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas safety Jordan Battle committed to Ohio State.

Pickerington (OH) Central defensive tackle DeWayne Carter, Jr. committed to Duke. This is the same school that sent Taco Charlton to Michigan, but I don’t think the Wolverines were pursuing him very hard.

Hit the jump for several more updates.

2019

Erick All – TE – Fairfield (OH) Fairfield: All is a 6’4″, 225 lb. prospect with offers from Iowa, Michigan, and Wisconsin, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #22 tight end, and #504 overall.

Karsen Barnhart – OT – Paw Paw (MI) Paw Paw: Barnhart is committed to Michigan (LINK). This is an unofficial visit.

Zach Carpenter – OG – Cincinnati (OH) Moeller: Carpenter is committed to Michigan (LINK). This is an unofficial visit.

Recruiting Update: May 28, 2018

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Dayton (OH) Dunbar offensive tackle Jon Allen was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’6″, 315 lb. prospect with offers from Louisville, Ohio State, and West Virginia, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #43 offensive tackle, and #466 overall. Ohio State holds all seven crystal ball picks, so he may not be worth evening paying attention.

Fort Pierce (FL) Vero Beach defensive end Jahfari Harvey was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 215-pounder with offers from Georgia, Miami, and Oregon, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #34 weakside end, and #486 overall. His recruitment has taken off lately, so he might be waiting to see if some of the other big-time programs offer, especially ones in Florida. The favorite right now is probably Miami.

Stuart (FL) Martin wide receiver George Johnson III was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’11”, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Oregon, and USF, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #18 dual-threat quarterback, and #929 overall. While he plays quarterback in high school, he will probably have to convert to receiver at bigger programs such as Michigan. Right now he’s strongly considering playing quarterback at schools where he could be that dual-threat QB, like Georgia Tech.

Hit the jump for several guys who went off the board to other schools.

Preview of 2019 In-State Recruiting: #6-10

Muskegon (MI) Muskegon OT Anthony Bradford (image via Twitter)

Using 247 Composite rankings, I’m doing a rundown of the top players in the state of Michigan for 2019. I posted about the #1-5 players last week (LINK). Here’s the next installment.

6. Anthony Bradford – OT – Muskegon (MI) Muskegon
Height: 6’5″
Weight: 320 lbs.
Notable offers: Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State
Commitment: Uncommitted
247 Composite: 4-star, #23 OT, #236 overall
Analysis: Bradford’s own Hudl page lists him as 6’6″ and 344 lbs., along with a 5.24 forty, a 5.12 shuttle, a 28″ vertical, and a 365 lb. bench press. I’m guessing he’s closer to the 344 than the 320; he is a very large individual and someone who probably needs to reshape his body a little bit. He moves pretty well for a guy his size and has a good first step, though he will need to rework his stance a little bit in college, which may slow him down a little bit when he puts less weight on his hand. He’s a mauler and probably a right tackle, or maybe an offensive guard.

Hit the jump for #7-10.

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.
