Mission Viejo (CA) Mission Viejo CB Olaijah Griffin (image via SoCal Prep Legends)


Casey Hughes – CB/S – Utah: Hughes is a 6’0″, 185 lb. cornerback/safety who is a grad transfer from Utah, so he will be eligible to play immediately. He made 35 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 1 pass breakup, and 2 forced fumbles as a starting cornerback in 2017.


Ronnie Bell – WR – Kansas City (MO) Park Hill: Bell is committed to Michigan (LINK). This is his official visit.

Vincent Gray – CB – Rochester (MI) Adams: Gray is a 6’2″, 180 lb. prospect who was committed to Missouri from July 2017 until recently. He’s a 3-star, the #60 cornerback, and #681 overall. He also has offers from Iowa State, Kentucky, Michigan,  West Virginia, some lower-level Power Five programs, and some MAC schools. This is his official visit.

Olaijah Griffin – CB – Mission Viejo (CA) Mission Viejo: Griffin is a 6’0″, 170 lb. cornerback who was committed to UCLA until recently. He’s a 4-star, the #4 cornerback, and #31 overall, and he’s an Under Armour All-American. He has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, and USC, among others. He took a visit to Tennessee and named them his leader after the visit, so that’s who Michigan is chasing right now. He’s a teammate of offensive tackle Jarrett Patterson, whom Michigan is also recruiting. Griffin said he would visit either Auburn or Michigan this weekend, and he will visit the other team next weekend. UPDATE: Griffin is playing in the Polynesian Bowl this weekend and will presumably not take the official visit until next weekend. His official to Auburn is scheduled for the first weekend in February.

Ryan Hayes – TE/OT – Traverse City (MI) West: Hayes signed with Michigan in December (LINK). This is his official visit.

Jake Moody – K – Northville (MI) Northville: Moody is a 6’1″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Air Force, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, and UMass, among others; he also has a grayshirt offer from Michigan.

Otis Reese – LB – Leesburg (GA) Lee County: Reese is committed to Michigan (LINK) but did not sign during the early signing period. This is his official visit.

Tyquavious Terrell – WR – Leesburg (GA) Lee County: Terrell is a 6’0″, 190 lb. prospect with offers from Ball State, Central Michigan, Georgia Southern, Marshall, and UMass. He’s a 247 Sports 2-star, the #314 wide receiver, and #2129 overall. Terrell is a classmate of Otis Reese (see above). He claims a 4.39 forty and has very good football speed. I’m surprised he doesn’t have some bigger offers.


Bryan Bresee – DE – Damascus (MD) Damascus: Bresee is a 6’4″, 260 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #1 strongside end, and #1 overall player in the country for the 2020 class.
