2022 Recruiting Update: May 31, 2019

I’m trying something different with these recruiting updates. I end up regurgitating information when I could just copy-and-paste 247’s code to give you parts of the info. Let me know whether this is better or worse, specifically like with page loading time, readability, etc. Thanks!

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2022

Dennis-Sutton has offers from Maryland, Penn State, and Virginia Tech, among others.

Gould has offers from Florida, Notre Dame, and Rutgers, among others.

Hit the jump for more.

Greene has offers from Florida State, LSU, and Nebraska, among others. He was one of several Bosco prospects who visited Michigan over their spring break.

Preston Howard – QB – Owings Mills (MD) McDonogh: Howard, a teammate of Dennis-Sutton (see above), is a 6’6″, 220-pounder who plays quarterback, but he could very well outgrow the position to become a tight end, defensive end, or outside linebacker.

Jackson has offers from Florida, LSU, Ohio State, and USC, among others. He claims a 4.51 forty and a 4.25 shuttle. Mater Dei is typically a USC pipeline, so don’t get up your hopes.

Devin Moore – CB – Naples (FL) Naples: Moore is a 6’3″, 180-pounder with an offer from Florida.

Morris is a teammate of new 2021 Michigan quarterback commit J.J. McCarthy. Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota have all offered, too.

Alabama, Auburn, and Florida have all offered Murphy already. He claims a 4.41 forty and a 33.8″ vertical.

Nichols has offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma, and Tennessee, among others. He’s a teammate of Chris Hinton, Jr. and 2020 linebacker Choe Bryant-Strother, who is strongly considering Michigan.

Patterson, who hails from Denard Robinson’s alma mater, also has an offer from Ole Miss.

Saunders also has offers from Indiana, Penn State, and West Virginia, among others.

Auburn, Florida, and Miami have all offered Singletary as well. He had 27 tackles and 7 interceptions as a freshman in 2018.

Van Sumeren is the younger brother of Michigan running back Ben Van Sumeren. Alex will probably grow into a defensive tackle before all is said and done.

Williams, a teammate of Domani Jackson (see above), also has offers from LSU, Nebraska, and Oregon

Williams, a former teammate of Daxton Hill, also has offers from Baylor, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State, among others. He will probably be a defensive back at the next level.

Florida, Maryland, and Penn State have also offered Williams, who is a teammate of Dani Dennis-Sutton and Preston Howard (see above).

Williams looks to me like he will become a defensive end eventually. He’s a teammate of 2020 Michigan linebacker commit Cornell Wheeler, as well as a couple other targets in 2020 safety Makari Paige and 2021 running back Donovan Edwards.

    Takes a bit to load but I like having the link to the 247 profile available if I want more info.

      That said the fonts are such that your headers and text get buried a bit.

      Yeah, the load time is a bit of a concern for me. I don’t want people to get tired of waiting to read it. Maybe more frequent posts will limit the load time and cut down on posting 10 or 20 profiles at once. When TTB has to wait for 247 and Hudl to load pictures/videos, that communication can take a while.

      Thanks for the feedback.

    Looks fine on my end, and I like the setup better than a straight narrative, especially if that method is more time consuming for you

      Yeah, I used to keep up with the film on all these young kids getting offered two or three years ahead of signing day, because they must be awesome to get those early offers. But now that recruiting has sped up, I can’t keep up with watching film on every single 2021 and 2022 and 2023 offer going out. So I have less to comment on, whereas I used to do a mini-scouting report on almost every new offer. Now I only really watch the 2020 kids’ highlights, and any others that are particularly interesting (in-state kids, legacy kids, NFLers’ sons, etc.).

    Takes a bit to load. I, personally, like the old way better. Less scrolling, more concise. I typically like quicker reads that are almost like bullet points. Plus, the way the offers are listed seems like I’m reading the offers for the picture of the player right below when I’m actually reading the offers from the picture of the kid right above.

    prefer the 247 links – much easier than googling each prospect i want to look up.

    only constructive criticism would be cleaning up spacing of the text by placing text, offers, etc immediately below each prospect’s image and then leaving a blank row or 2 before the next prospect, as opposed to the current layout which seems opposite. that is if its possible and your platform allows.

    it takes a few more seconds to load but its not too bad as its just a few links and small images vs videos. hudl vids and multiple social media posts seem to take the longest to load for me so this is fine.

    id think most would acclimate to the new format after a few updates and end up liking it in the long run

    As time goes on and it becomes more likely that a potential recruit becomes more interested (“warm”) in Michigan (or my other team) or a rival I’m going to start researching them anyway but 3 years out I’m not paying too much attention unless they’re extremely exceptional, i.e. ‘A 6 Star’
    In this sense I’m paying attention now to the 20 & 21’s regarding a lot of classes. Michigan & FSU obviously; also their rivals along with general geographic possible competition: i.e
    Michigan: the MOPs, ND, Wisky, NW and also Cincy.
    FSU: the 5 Fla Unis, ND again, Clemson; also Ga, Ga Tech & obviously Al.
    I also keep an eye on the Brainiac Unis especially re OL offers:
    Stanford, NW, Vandy, ND(again) but to repeat all of this out 2 years; 3 to me is just WAAay to premature so not lookin at 2022 year and to go back in time, I’m still trying to figure out what ever happened with Michigan’s ’16 class;Fall ’19 will answer a lot of ??’s re this.
    Not over it yet……….INTJohn
