2019

Jahleel Billingsley – TE – Chicago (IL) Phillips: Billingsley is a 6’5″, 225 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #9 tight end, and #260 overall. Right now 83% of his Crystal Ball picks are for Ohio State.

Jase Bowen – WR – Toledo (OH) Central Catholic: Bowen is a 6’1″, 178-pounder with offers from Kentucky, Minnesota, and Virginia, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #74 wide receiver, and #561 overall. He was previously committed to Notre Dame to play baseball.

Zach Charbonnet – RB – Westlake Village (CA) Oaks Christian: Charbonnet is a 6’2″, 215-pounder with offers from Florida, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, UCLA, and USC, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #18 running back, and #275 overall.

Daequan Hardy – CB – Pittsburgh (PA) Penn Hills: Hardy is a 5’10”, 160 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, a couple service academies, and a few MAC schools. He claims a 4.45 forty and a 38″ vertical. I don’t always tout the underrated guys, but I really think Hardy’s recruitment is going to take off. He’s a pretty electric player.

Zach Harrison – DE – Lewis Center (OH) Olentangy Orange: Harrison is a 6’6″, 240 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 5-star, the #2 weakside end, and #3 overall. All thirteen Crystal Ball picks have him going to Ohio State, which sounds about right. But at least Michigan is getting him on campus, so there’s a chance…

Will Harrod – OT – Fort Washington (MD) National Christian Academy: Harrod is a 6’5″, 305-pounder with offers from Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Oregon, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #21 offensive tackle, and #188 overall. There are eleven Crystal Ball predictions in for him, and every single one is in favor of Michigan; in fact, there are some who believe he will commit to the Wolverines during his trip.

Hit the jump for several more visitors.

Daxton “Dax” Hill – S – Tulsa (OK) Booker T. Washington: Hill is a 6’1″, 190 lb. prospect with offers from pretty much every big-time program in the country. He’s a 5-star, the #2 safety, and #27 overall. He made 67 tackles and 5 interceptions as a junior in 2017. Oklahoma, Ohio State, and Oklahoma State all have picks in the Crystal Ball running, with Oklahoma out front.

Chris Hinton – DE – Norcross (GA) Greater Atlanta Christian: Hinton is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Kobe Myers – ATH – Walled Lake (MI) Western: Myers is a 6’1″, 190-pounder with offers from Iowa, Syracuse, and several MAC programs. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #116 athlete, and #1197 overall. He’s a teammate of a couple players Michigan has offered, including offensive tackle Spencer Brown and Jacob Dean.

E.J. Ndoma-Ogar – OG – Allen (TX) Allen: Ndoma-Ogar is a 6’3″, 305 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas, and USC, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #9 offensive guard, and #165 overall. Right now Oklahoma leads in the Crystal Ball race.

Ruke Orhorhoro – DE – River Rouge (MI) River Rouge: Orhorhoro is a 6’5″, 230 lb. prospect with offers from Iowa, Minnesota, Northwestern, and Wisconsin, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #60 weakside end, and #888 overall.

Joey Porter, Jr. – CB – Wexford (PA) North Allegheny: Porter is a 6’2″, 185 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona State, LSU, Pitt, and West Virginia, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #67 cornerback, and #752 overall. He’s the son of former NFL linebacker Joey Porter, who went to Colorado State.

Paul Tyson – QB – Trussville (AL) Hewitt-Trussville: Tyson is a 6’4″, 217-pounder with offers from Alabama, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, and USC, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #7 pro-style quarterback, and #221 overall. As a junior in 2017, he threw for 3,392 yards, 36 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. He’s a descendant of the great Paul “Bear” Bryant, which seems like pretty much a guarantee that he’ll end up with the Crimson Tide.

Tra Wilkins – LB – Stone Mountain (GA) Stephenson: Wlkins is a 6’2″, 210 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #79 athlete, and #793 overall.

2020

Aidan Atkinson – QB – Boulder (CO) Fairview: Atkinson is a 6’3″, 195 lb. prospect with offers from Akron, Boise State, Nevada, and Ole Miss. As a sophomore in 2017, he completed 224/331 passes (67.7%) for 3,405 yards, 23 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions.

    Why is it Ohio St always gets those great DEs? Do you know?

    If Michigan can get that O Lineman, but none of these others in this list, I will be satisfied.

      Ohio State gets great players at almost every position. That’s just the nature of the program and its history/tradition.

      But also, Ohio State has the best defensive line coach in the country, IMO. Larry Johnson produced 1st round picks at Penn State (Courtney Brown, Michael Haines, etc.), and now he’s producing big-timers at OSU. I’ve said this before, but I was really hoping Michigan would hire him after PSU cleaned house.
