2021

Da’Qualen “D.Q.” James – RB – Lancaster (TX) Lancaster: James is a 5’7″, 180 lb. prospect who’s committed to Hawaii. He did not sign during the early signing period, but Michigan has not extended an offer yet. He’s a 3-star, the #20 all-purpose back, and #1781 overall. As a senior in 2020, he ran the ball 82 times for 1,404 yards and 22 touchdowns. Personally, I know Michigan needs defensive tackles and cornerbacks, but aside from that, I don’t mind late additions of “athletes” who can come in and play a variety of positions.

2021

Owen Carney – DE – Illinois: Carney announced he would be transferring from Illinois. He’s a 6’3″, 260-pounder who made 27 tackles, 6 tackles for loss, and 5 sacks in 2020. With Kwity Paye leaving Michigan for the NFL and no clear-cut star waiting in the wings, Carney could potentially come in and take Paye’s spot. Carney is originally from Miami (FL) Central.

Mohamed Diallou – DT – Central Michigan: Diallo is a 6’4″, 305 lb. tackle who made 18 tackles, 9 tackles for loss, and 3 sacks during the 2020 campaign. He’s originally from Ontario, Canada.

OFF THE BOARD

Derrick Tangelo – DT – Duke: The transfer tackle committed to Penn State.

Coaching Situation Update: January 3, 2021

I’m not big into trying to pretend to be a reporter, but like all fans, I’m curious about Michigan’s coaching situation. Here’s what I’ve gathered from various resources on each of the coaching jobs:

1. HEAD COACH: Jim Harbaugh
Harbaugh is rumored to be holding a staff meeting early this coming week to discuss an extension, as well as some staff additions. The rumor is that he will be extended through 2026.
Other options: Matt Campbell, Luke Fickell

2. OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR/WIDE RECEIVERS COACH: Josh Gattis?
I think Gattis is on thin ice due to the lack of development, questionable play calling, and general ineptitude. There are rumors floating about that Joe Moorhead (current OC at Oregon, former OC at Penn State, and former HC at Mississippi State) may sign on to coordinate Michigan’s offense. Gattis may be demoted to wide receivers coach or go somewhere else entirely.
Other options: ???
