It’s an impossible task to guess who will sign with Michigan in the 2018 class.
But I eat impossible tasks for breakfast.
So here’s my best guess for 2018. I’m adding five to the current number of open slots because I assume attrition will occur. So here are the 14 players who will definitely, positively sign with Michigan next February (or earlier).
QB: Joe Milton (1): Some people assumed Milton would end up at Miami, but the Hurricanes just got a commitment from Artur Sitkowski.
RB: Tavion Thomas (2): Thomas was thought to be an Ohio State lean, but they might not have room for him.
FB: N/A: It seems that Michigan is somewhat comfortable counting on walk-ons and position-changers to get the job done.
WR: Jahan Dotson (3): Michigan hasn’t been mentioned for many of the top receivers, which makes some sense consider the Wolverines took five receivers in the 2017 class.
TE: Will Mallory (4): Mallory is a legacy prospect.
OT: Daniel Faalele (5): Faalele seems to have Michigan in front, and they were the first team to really pursue him.
OG: Emil Ekiyor (6): Ekiyor is already committed (LINK).
C: Tyrone Sampson (7): Sampson hasn’t been offered yet, but Michigan will need another center behind Cesar Ruiz after Mason Cole graduates. Sampson is a Detroit native.
DE: Aidan Hutchinson (8): Hutchinson is already committed (LINK).
DT: Aeneas Hawkins (9): The Ohio native is a penetrating 3-tech type of defensive tackle.
LB: Otis Reese (10): Reese is already committed (LINK).
CB: D’shawn Jamison (11), Anthony Lytton (12): Michigan hasn’t been mentioned much among the defensive backs they’ve offered, but Jamison put the Wolverines in his top group and they have recruited the East Coast well, which is where Lytton resides.
S: Shayne Simon (13), Cajuan Smith (14): Simon is one of the top players in the State of New Jersey, and we know Michigan recruits the Garden State well. Meanwhile, Smith named Michigan to his top group not long ago.
K/P: N/A: Michigan took a placekicker in 2016 and a punter in 2017, so there shouldn’t be a need here.
