A Spring 2019 Depth Chart, of Sorts

Jim Harbaugh and other coaches reported somewhat of a depth chart earlier this week, with some interesting tidbits. Obviously, there are some injuries that are probably affecting this, so don’t shoot the messenger.

NOTE: Players listed are in order, unless a “/” exists, which indicates an unresolved competition.

Final TTB Ratings for 2018

Thanks to Bryan and Keith for the recent, generous donations through Paypal!


It’s been a long time coming because I’ve been so busy, but here are the final TTB Ratings for the class of 2018.

A note on the ratings: These are Michigan-specific ratings, so a guy who would be an instant starter at Eastern Michigan might not be quite so much of an individual standout playing against Michigan’s opponents . . . and he might even have a hard time getting on the field over some other Wolverines. It’s tricky trying to determine how the depth chart will shake out over the next three to five years, but I’m here for the heavy lifting. For more of an explanation, check out this page here (LINK).

Hit the jump for the final rankings.

2018 Season Countdown: #98 Vincent Gray

Vincent Gray

Name: Vincent Gray
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 180 lbs.
High school: Rochester (MI) Adams
Position: Cornerback
Class: Freshman
Jersey number: N/A
Last year: Gray was a senior in high school (LINK).

Michigan took a late flier on Gray, which caused him to decommit from Missouri. Oregon was really his only other offer from a successful program, and Michigan fans showed mixed emotions. Gray finished the cycle as a 3-star, the #63 cornerback, and #702 overall. Maybe he has the size to be an early contributor, but the athleticism and technique leave something to be desired. Michigan didn’t lose any of their corners from last season, so there’s not much opportunity for playing time. Starters Lavert Hill and David Long return, while backup Brandon Watson has established himself as a very solid third corner. The Wolverines also signed several other defensive backs in the 2018 class. It would seem to make sense for Gray to redshirt, although burning redshirts unnecessarily happens on occasion.

Prediction: Redshirt

2018 Recruiting Update: The Dump

Leesburg (GA) Lee County LB Otis Reese

A couple days ago, I was hit with the annual $1,300 bill for web hosting from Flywheel. It reminded me how few site issues I’ve had since changing to Flywheel. Anyway, if you are capable and so inclined, please consider using the Paypal button on the sidebar to donate a few dollars to keep the site running. As always, you can also click on the Amazon links and buy something within 24 hours, and TTB will get a percentage. I appreciate all the support you can give. Thanks!


COMMITMENTS

Rochester (MI) Adams cornerback Vincent Gray committed to Michigan (LINK).

Northville (MI) Northville kicker Jake Moody committed to Michigan as a grayshirt.

DECOMMITMENTS

Washington (DC) St. John’s quarterback Kevin Doyle decommitted from Michigan (LINK).

Leesburg (GA) Lee County linebacker Otis Reese flipped from Michigan to Georgia. He’s a 4-star, the #5 outside linebacker, and #87 overall. Michigan’s coaching staff found out that he was flipping when he announced on the morning of National Signing Day, which is a . . . uhhh . . . less than ideal behavior from someone who has been committed to you for 1.5 years. Michigan’s coaches took heat for yanking offers late in the process previously (see: Erik Swenson), but at least those players had a chance to make other plans. If you wait until the last day to decide, somebody’s getting screwed.

Hit the jump for all the guys who committed elsewhere, along with some random bits.
