2018 Recruiting Update: January 12, 2018

OFF THE BOARD

Ft. Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas defensive end Nik Bonitto committed to Oklahoma. Bonitto was very high on Michigan early, and then Michigan stopped contacting him. It seemed at one time that he would end up with the Wolverines, so it would be interesting to know why Michigan didn’t want him anymore, especially if he turns into a good college player, too.

Howell (NJ) Blair Academy defensive end Jayson Oweh committed to Penn State. He’s a relatively late bloomer since he has only been playing football for two years, but he was good enough in that time to get offers from Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Penn State, among others.

Moultrie (GA) Colquitt County linebacker J.J. Peterson committed to Tennessee at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Michigan was never really a factor.

Hit the jump for more on the 2018 class.

2018

Verdis Brown – OG – Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy: Brown is a 6’3″, 294 lb. prospect with offers from Florida State, LSU, Michigan, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #7 offensive guard, and #147 overall.

Sammy Faustin – S – Naples (FL) Naples: Faustin is a 6’2″, 170 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona, Maryland, and Michigan, among others. He’s currently unranked by the 247 Composite rankings. Right now all three Crystal Ball predictions are in favor of Michigan.

Tyler Friday – DT – Ramsey (NJ) Don Bosco Prep: Friday is a 6’3″, 260 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #2 defensive tackle, and #39 overall. Michigan has landed the top player in the state of New Jersey three out of the last four years (Drew Singleton in 2017, Rashan Gary in 2016, and Jabrill Peppers in 2014), and they’re hoping to do so again. Right now Michigan has 80% of the Crystal Ball picks.

Ryan Hayes – OT – Traverse City (MI) West: Hayes is a 6’7″, 252 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, and Notre Dame, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #12 OT, and #153 overall. Right now Notre Dame has the Crystal Ball lead with 75%.

Hit the jump for a couple more visitors.

2017

Logan Christopherson – TE – Lemont (IL) Lemont: Christopherson is a 6’6″, 216 lb. prospect who committed to Missouri last week. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #33 tight end, and #761 overall. He was supposed to visit Michigan on June 11, but I haven’t heard whether his recent commitment means his visit plans are over or not. Lemont is the alma mater of former Michigan Rimington Award winner David Molk.

Joel Honigford – OT – Sugarcreek (OH) Garaway: Honigford is a 6’6″, 278 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #67 offensive tackle, and #607 overall.

Jaylen Kelly-Powell – S – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Kelly-Powell is a 6’0″, 183 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #20 safety, and #250 overall. His Crystal Ball is 94% in favor of the Wolverines right now.

Jamyest Williams – CB – Loganville (GA) Grayson: Williams is a 5’9″, 170 lb. prospect with offers from Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Ohio State, South Carolina, and Tennessee, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #6 cornerback, and #55 overall. A recent transfer from Lawrenceville (GA) Archer, Williams was in Detroit for the Sound Mind Sound Body camp and made his way over to Michigan’s campus. He took the same trip last year and subsequently eliminated the Wolverines from his top lists, so it’s either a sightseeing trip or he has renewed his interest in the Wolverines after what he has seen Jim Harbaugh do. Regardless, he’s a longshot to end up as a Wolverine. One of his teammates at Grayson will be 2017 running back commit Kurt Taylor, who is transferring from Covington (GA) Newton.

2018

Tyler Friday – DE – Ramsey (NJ) Don Bosco: Friday is a 6’3″, 255 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, and Wisconsin, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #7 defensive tackle, and #35 overall.

Recruiting Update: October 1, 2015

Arlington Heights (IL) St. Viator tight end Cole Kmet


ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2016

Suwanee (GA) Collins Hill defensive end Tomon Fox, a North Carolina commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 230 lb. prospect who also has offers from Auburn, Miami, Notre Dame, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #30 weakside end, and #446 overall. Fox committed to UNC in June, but he is expected to give Michigan a look and potentially visit. The weakside end (a.k.a. Buck linebacker) position is somewhat shallow at Michigan, and with no proven players at the position, Michigan is looking to add someone in the 2016 class to go with Camden (NJ) Camden’s Ron Johnson, Jr.

Hit the jump for some new 2017 and 2018 offers, plus some random bits.
