Clayton (OH) Northmont DE Gabe Newburg (image via 247 Sports)

Thanks to Peter for the generous Paypal donation last week! That was a very pleasant surprise.


Clayton (OH) Northmont defensive end Gabe Newburg was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 230-pounder with offers from Cincinnati, Michigan State, Rutgers, and some MAC programs. He’s a 3-star, the #53 weakside end, and #798 overall. Newburg visited Michigan two weekends ago and was offered on the visit. Northmont is the alma mater of former Michigan linebacker Kaleb Ringer, who transferred to Georgia State. After the offer, a bunch of Crystal Ball picks came in for Newburg to Michigan, now up to 100% (13 total picks).

Columbus (OH) St. Francis DeSales safety Joey Velazquez was offered by Michigan. The 6’0″, 205-pounder is committed to Ohio State for baseball, and he is unranked as a football prospect at this point. He claims a 4.54 forty, a 4.1 shuttle, a 390 lb. bench press, and a 570 lb. squat. He’s a good all around athlete who could project to strong safety or Viper at Michigan.

St. Louis (MO) St. John Vianney wide receiver Kyren Williams was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’10, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Stanford, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #44 running back, and #551 overall. Williams has a compact, stout build that could see him play running back or slot receiver at the next level.

Hit the jump for more.


Springfield (OH) Springfield cornerback Moses Douglass committed to Kentucky. This is a big pull for the Wildcats, since Douglass had offers from the likes of Alabama and Michigan, but Ohio State hasn’t come calling yet. It will be interesting to see if his commitment sticks if the Buckeyes offer.

Westlake Village (CA) Westlake linebacker De’Gabriel Floyd committed to Texas. This is huge for Texas, who now have a verbal from the #3 outside linebacker and #40 overall player in the country – and it’s not even from their home state. Floyd was thought for a long time to be a USC lean.

Cartersville (GA) Cartersville tight end Jackson Lowe committed to Tennessee. It really helped Lowe’s profile to have #1 overall prospect Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) throwing passes to him for the past couple years.


Here’s a HUGE list of visitors from last week/weekend (LINK). Michigan is getting a ton of prospects on campus this spring.

Michigan made the cut for:

  • 4-star DE Collin Clay (LINK)
  • 4-star RB John Emery (LINK)
  • 4-star TE Jude Wolfe (LINK)

Unfortunately, Michigan missed the cut for:

  • 4-star OT Amari Kight (LINK)
  • 5-star CB Chris Steele (LINK)
