Detroit (MI) King safety Myles Rowser, a 2022 prospect, committed to Michigan on Monday, a terribly unfortunate time to commit, when Michigan was also landing a transfer (Edward Warinner) and the national championship game was on everyone’s mind. Rowser picked Michigan over offers from Florida, Florida State, Penn State, and others.

Rowser is listed at 5’11” and 175 lbs. He claims a 4.31 shuttle.

Rowser is the younger brother of 2020 Michigan enrollee Andre Seldon, Jr. Seldon played for Belleville his entire career, and Rowser played for the Tigers for his first two years of high school before transferring to Detroit King after his sophomore season was completed. Michigan has long been the leader for Rowser, and it seemed like only a matter of time before he would commit. For some reason or another, Belleville has not traditionally been kind to Michigan from the days of Ian Gold all the way to Seldon, and perhaps it’s not a coincidence that Rowser transferred to King before committing to the Wolverines.

I don’t love evaluating recruits based on sophomore film, because there’s so much physical and mental development to take place afterward. I look for build, overall athleticism, and aggressiveness early in players’ careers rather than focusing in on technique.

Rivals lists Rowser as a cornerback, but he mostly plays safety in high school, and I think that is where he will most likely land in college. He’s bigger than Seldon and a little less quick twitch. The willingness to come up and hit is there, and he has the frame to add some weight. My early comparison is Brad Hawkins, but there’s time for his body to change.

Michigan now has two commitments in the 2022 class, where Rowser joins defensive lineman Alex Van Sumeren. It’s way too early to guess how big the 2022 class will be. By then Hawkins will be gone, and perhaps Daxton Hill will be on his way to the NFL if the next two years go well. Here’s a way, way too early look at the safety depth by 2022:

  • Sammy Faustin (RS Sr.)
  • German Green (RS Sr.)
  • Daxton Hill (Sr.)
  • Jordan Morant (Jr.)
  • R.J. Moten (Jr.)
  • Makari Paige (Jr.)
  • Myles Rowser (Fr.)

Overall, Rowser looks like a good pickup for Michigan. How good will depend on what happens over the next couple seasons, but I think Rowser will probably be a 4-star prospect once the 2021 rankings come out.

TTB Rating: I will not be rating any 2022 guys for a while.
