2018

Eyabi Anoma – DE – Baltimore (MD) St. Frances: Anoma is a 6’5″, 230 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Maryland, and Michigan, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #3 weakside end, and #41 overall. His head coach, Biff Poggi, says that Anoma is the best player he’s ever coached, and that includes a bunch of a high-quality players from his days at Baltimore (MD) Gilman. Anoma also visited for the BBQ at the Big House. All six Crystal Ball picks have him going to Alabama. This is his official visit.

Michael Barrett – RB – Valdosta (GA) Lowndes: Barrett is a 5’11”, 215 lb. dual-threat quarterback who projects to running back in college. He’s a 3-star, the #61 athlete, and #706 overall with offers from LSU, Maryland, and Michigan, among others. This is his official visit. UPDATE: Barrett is no longer visiting.

Ja’Marr Chase – WR – Metairie (LA) Archbishop Rummel: Chase is a 6’2″, 190 lb. prospect who recently decommitted from Florida. He’s a 4-star, the #12 wide receiver, and #69 overall with offers from Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, TCU, and Tennessee, among others. TCU has taken the Crystal Ball lead with 76% of current predictions. Michigan just recently offered, so that relationship is still new, but it’s a positive sign that he scheduled a visit to Ann Arbor so quickly. This is his official visit.

Hit the jump for several more visitors.

2017 BBQ at the Big House Visitors

Michigan will be hosting numerous football prospects on July 29, 2017, for the BBQ at the Big House. Last year there were travel issues for many prospects, who were unable to visit in August after their high school teams’ practices started. This year the BBQ is a week earlier, which should make for fewer conflicts. Here’s an early look at several players who plan to attend:

2018

Bryan Addison – S – Gardena (CA) Junipero Serra: Addison is a 6’4″, 185 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Oregon, UCLA, USC, and Washington, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #4 athlete, and #146 overall. Michigan does not have any Crystal Ball picks right now, with USC leading the way at 50%.

Eyabi Anoma – DE – Baltimore (MD) St. Frances: Anoma is a 6’5″, 230 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #3 weakside end, and #54 overall.

Jerome Carvin – OT – Cordova (TN) Cordova: Carvin is a 6’4″, 325 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Michigan, and Tennessee, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #30 offensive tackle, and #368 overall.

Hit the jump for more 2018 and 2019 recruits who plan to attend the BBQ.

Recruiting from Tomorrow: June 13, 2016

Dorian Thompson-Robinson 22x

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2018

Allen (TX) Lovejoy linebacker Bumper Pool was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’2″, 215 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Arkansas, and Oklahoma State, among others. Yes, his real name is indeed Bumper James Morris Pool. In six games with stats reported in 2015, he made 68 tackles, 3 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, and 1 fumble recovery.

Las Vegas (NV) Bishop Gorman quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’2″, 195 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon, and Utah, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #4 dual-threat quarterback, and #73 overall. As a sophomore on 2015, he was 11/17 for 179 yards, 1 TD, and 1 INT; he also ran 21 times for 179 yards and 3 TDs, and he made 5 catches for 54 yards. Those are pretty paltry numbers for a star quarterback, but that’s because he was a backup to 2017 prospect Tate Martell, a former Texas A&M commit who is likely to end up signing with Ohio State (EDIT: after I scheduled this post, Martell committed to OSU last night). The Wolverines are also recruiting 2017 wideout Tyjon Lindsey, 2017 cornerback Alex Perry, and 2018 linebacker Palaie Gaoteote from Bishop Gorman. Thompson-Robinson’s mother is a Michigan graduate, he has visited previously, and he plans to come back for the Aerial Assault QB Camp in a week.

Hit the jump for a new 2019 offer, the first 2020 offer, and some other bits.
