In case you missed it, there was some site news posted yesterday about a new contributor and a new way to get an avatar (LINK).
Grand Rapids (MI) Catholic Central offensive guard Jalen Mayfield, a Minnesota commit, was offered by Michigan. Mayfield is a 6’5″, 255 lb. guard/tackle prospect who chose the Gophers on February 18, but he also has offers from Arizona, Iowa, and Michigan State, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #57 offensive tackle, and #797 overall. As of Sunday afternoon, Michigan owns 83% of the Crystal Ball picks on 247 Sports, including that of the trustworthy Steve Lorenz. UPDATE: I already had this post written, but Mayfield decommitted from Minnesota on Sunday evening, and I took that as a ripe opportunity to also put in a Crystal Ball for Michigan. He’s now at 100% for the Wolverines.
St. Louis (MO) Lutheran North defensive end Ronnie Perkins was offered by Michigan. Perkins is a 6’4″, 250 lb. strongside end prospect who’s a 4-star, the #12 weakside end, and #254 overall. He has offers from Georgia, Iowa, LSU, Missouri, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Texas, and UCLA, among others. Perkins is a guy who might bulk up and play 3-tech tackle at the next level, but I don’t think he’ll be a weakside end like his rankings indicate.
Hit the jump for another offer, a commitment elsewhere, and some random bits.
Flowood (MS) Jackson running back Jerrion Ealy was offered by Michigan. Ealy is a 5’8″, 171 lb. prospect with offers Louisville, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Tennessee. As a sophomore in 2016, he ran the ball 106 times for 971 yards and 16 touchdowns, and he caught 34 passes for 609 yards and 10 scores.
OFF THE BOARD
Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy running back T.J. Pledger, uh, pledged to Oklahoma. Pledger is a potential 5-star as the #2 all-purpose back and #32 overall player, and Michigan had made an effort to get in on him. However, he has been pegged for the Sooners for a while.
Michigan had a pretty solid group of visitors on campus this past week/weekend (LINK).
A few top lists were released this week:
