Michigan landed a ton of players in the 2020 class over the past week or so:

Hit the jump for more.


Kalil Branham – WR – Columbus (OH) Northland: Branham, a one-time Michigan commit, pledged to Kentucky.

Jay Brunelle – WR – Worcester (MA) St. John’s: Brunelle committed to Notre Dame, despite being a high school teammate of Eamonn Dennis. Brunelle took an official visit to Michigan during the same weekend as Dennis (LINK).

Darrion Henry – DT – Cincinnati (OH) Princeton: Henry (4-star, #11 DT, #151 overall) committed to Ohio State.

D.J. Jones – RB – Fayetteville (NC) Pine Forest: Jones committed to North Carolina. He also officially visited Michigan during the June 21-23 weekend.

Antwaun Powell – DE – Portsmouth (VA) Norcom: Powell committed to Florida. He had been considered a Michigan lean for a while and had scheduled an official visit for June, but communication broke down for an undisclosed reason, and Michigan was essentially removed from his list of options.

Michael Redding III – WR – Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy: Redding committed to Miami.

Anthony Romphf – QB – Southfield (MI) Southfield: Romphf (3-star, #28 dual-threat QB, #957 overall) committed to Florida Atlantic. His recruitment was an odd one. He was reportedly offered by Michigan as a quarterback, even after J.D. Johnson was already committed. But that fizzled immediately and he ended up committed to the Owls, which is obviously a huge step down from playing in Ann Arbor.

Brandon Taylor – DE – Lima (OH) Lima: Taylor committed to Penn State.

Deamonte Trayanum – LB – Akron (OH) Hoban: Trayanum committed to Arizona State. For a long time, it seemed like Trayanum would follow 2019 signee Nolan Rumler to Michigan, but over the past few months, it became clear Trayanum was headed somewhere else.

    I’ll be paying attention to Kalil Branham at Kentucky. He could be a big piece for them. He would have gotten way less attention in Michigan’s offense. But I think he’s going to be good. Going to Kentucky will be better for him for getting into the NFL, since he should be getting targeted more.
