Recruiting Update: June 30, 2014

Nacogdoches (TX) Nacogdoches safety Brandon Jones was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’11”, 183 lb. prospect with offers from Baylor, Florida State, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Stanford, and Texas A&M, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 5-star, the #1 safety, and #23 overall. As a sophomore in 2013, he made 95 tackles, 5 interceptions (1 returned for a touchdown), and 8 pass breakups. He claims a 4.32 forty and is quite a solid tackler, too. Louisiana State, Notre Dame, and Texas A&M appear to be the leaders right now.

Woodberry Forest (VA) Woodberry Forest offensive tackle Clark Yarbrough was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 255 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Maryland, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Virginia, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #16 offensive tackle, and the #156 player overall. Yarbrough’s first year of organized football was as a sophomore in 2013, so he’s raw, but he has some very good agility and athleticism for such a big kid.

Here’s a list of visitors from this past week (LINK).

Last week on Recruiting Season, I profiled Plymouth’s Michael Jordan, St. John’s linebacker Tanner Motz, Detroit King’s Dontre Boyd, Detroit Cass Tech’s Lavert Hill, and Orchard Lake St. Mary’s K.J. Hamler.

Several Michigan targets will announce their college decisions this week:

  • St. Paul (MN) Cretin-Derham defensive end Jashon Cornell will announce his college decision on Wednesday. Michigan stopped recruiting him not long ago because they believe he will grow into a defensive tackle, and they are not interested in taking a 3-tech defensive tackle in the 2015 class. He seems like to end up at Michigan State or Ohio State, with Notre Dame also a possibility.
  • Cincinnati (OH) St. Xavier linebacker Justin Hilliard will announce back-to-back with Cornell on ESPN. There’s a good chance that he will pick Ohio State, and if the two of them are doing this in concert, that seems to be the most likely outcome. Again, Notre Dame is also a possibility.
  • New Lenox (IL) Providence Catholic wide receiver Miles Boykin is also announcing on Wednesday. His leader has been Notre Dame, so there’s a chance that all three of these guys end up in South Bend.
