Vero Beach (FL) Vero Beach linebacker Tarvos “T.J.” Alford (4-star, #8 LB, #63 overall) was offered by Michigan. Florida State, Miami, and Ohio State are all in line to get official visits, and his lone crystal ball pick is in favor of the home state Florida Gators. But Brian Jean-Mary extended an offer for Michigan shortly after being hired, and with the new rule that players can take as many officials as they want, there’s still plenty of room for Michigan to make a move. Alford is planning to announce his decision on March 30, but all three of his scheduled officials are for after that date.

Quitman (MS) Quitman running back Akylin Dear (4-star, #2 RB, #32 overall) was offered by brand new running backs coach Tony Alford, who had been recruiting Dear to Ohio State. He’s a 6’1″, 200 lb. back with offers from virtually every big-time program across the country, including Alabama, Georgia, Oregon, and Texas. He also holds offers from the two in-state schools in Mississippi State and Ole Miss.

Loxahatchee (FL) Seminole Ridge linebacker Ty Jackson (4-star, #15 LB, #105 overall) was offered by Michigan. Another Jean-Mary attempt, Jackson also has offers from Florida State, Georgia, Penn State, and Tennessee, among others; FSU, PSU, and UT are all supposed to get officials. Jackson has totaled 378 tackles in his three-year varsity career, along with 15 tackles for loss, 6 sacks, 5 forced fumbles, and 4 interceptions.

Hit the jump for more.

Center Valley (PA) Lehigh Valley tight end Andrew Olesh (4-star, #9 TE, #216 overall) was offered by Michigan. Alabama, Miami, Missouri, Ole Miss, and Penn State have all also offered. He had 53 catches for 972 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior in 2023.

Missouri City (TX) Hightower cornerback Kade Phillips (4-star, #27 CB, #286 overall) was offered by Michigan. Baylor, LSU, Texas, and Texas A&M have all also offered, and he’s scheduled official visits to all four of those schools.

Jesup (GA) Wayne County linebacker Tavion Wallace (4-star, #6 LB, #50 overall) was offered by new linebackers coach Brian Jean-Mary. He’s a 6’1″, 210 lb. prospect with official visits scheduled to Arkansas, Florida State, Georgia, and South Carolina. His brother Trevin Wallace just finished a career as a linebacker at Kentucky and ran a 4.51 forty with a 37.5″ vertical and a 10’7″ broad jump, so if Tavion is anywhere close to the same kind of athlete, someone is going to get a standout prospect.


Eastman (GA) Dodge County linebacker Darrell Johnson (4-star, #3 LB, #28 overall) committed to Georgia.

Hoschton (GA) Mill Creek linebacker Luke Metz (3-star, #48 LB, #424 overall) was offered by Michigan and took an unofficial visit to Ann Arbor last week (LINK) but then committed to Alabama.

Rabun Gap (GA) Nacoochee tight end Marshall Pritchett (3-star, #24 TE, #411 overall) committed to North Carolina on Saturday after taking an unofficial visit to Ann Arbor last week.

Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei defensive end Abduall Sanders, Jr. (4-star, #37 LB, #335 overall) committed to Alabama.

Humbolt (TN) Humbolt nose tackle Stephon Shivers (3-star, #65 DT, #682 overall), a 6’3″, 355 lb. prospect, committed to Georgia.
