Cincinnati (OH) Saint Xavier defensive lineman Ted Hammond, a 2024 prospect, committed to Michigan on January 25. He picked the Wolverines over offers from Cincinnati, Iowa, Oklahoma, Pitt, and others.
Hammond is listed at 6’5″ and 265 lbs. He claims a 30″ vertical, a 320 lb. bench press, a 565 lb. squat, and a 625 lb. deadlift.
TaRon Francis – WR – New Orleans (LA) Edna Karr: Francis is a 6’0″, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Florida State, LSU, and Ole Miss, among others. Edna Karr produced one of the best named players in Michigan recruiting history, the Rich Rod-pursued quarterback Munchie Legaux.
Brayden Jacobs – OG – Alpharetta (GA) St. Francis: A teammate of Brooks (see above), Jacobs is the son of former NFL running back Brandon Jacobs. The younger Jacobs is a 6’4″, 265 lb. lineman with offers from Florida, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, and Penn State, among others.
Martreece Dillard – DE – Buford (GA) Buford: Dillard is a 6’5″, 263 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Florida, and Mississippi State. Also, Charlotte – the new home of former Michigan staffer Bigg Poggi – offered Dillard four days after Michigan did. Coincidence? I don’t believe in coincidences!
Makai Saina – OG – Arlington (OH) Martin: Saina is a 6’4″, 300 lb. guard with offers from Arkansas, Baylor, LSU, Miami, Penn State, and USC, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #20 interior offensive lineman, and #382 overall. The last time Michigan landed a player from Martin, it was quarterback Russell Bellomy in the class of 2011.
Davison Igbinosun – CB – Ole Miss: Igbinosun is a 6’2″, 185 lb. prospect who will be a sophomore in 2023. He was a 4-star, the #21 cornerback, and #162 overall in the class of 2022. He played this past season at Ole Miss – where former Michigan assistant Chris Partridge was the co-defensive coordinator – and made 36 tackles with 5 pass breakups. With Michigan losing Gemon Green and D.J. Turner II to the NFL, the team has an open spot at corner across from Will Johnson.
Cameron Brandt – DT – Chatsworth (CA) Sierra Canyon: Brandt is a 6’4″, 260 lb. prospect who has been committed to Stanford since July of 2022. He’s a 3-star, the #50 defensive lineman, and #448 overall. Despite remaining verbally committed to Stanford after head coach David Shaw stepped down and was replaced by Sacramento State’s Troy Taylor, it seems like he is likely to flip to the Wolverines. This official visit is the only visit Brandt is taking before National Signing Day in February.
Hevin Brown-Shuler – DT – Atlanta (GA) Pace: Brown-Shuler is a 6’4″, 290-pounder with offers from Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State, and Tennessee, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #10 defensive lineman, and #72 overall.
