Recruiting Update: March 30, 2016

Greg Mattison with Dearborn (MI) Divine Child DE Aidan Hutchinson

Groton (MA) Lawrence Academy running back A.J. Dillon committed to Michigan (LINK).

Florence (AL) Florence safety J’Marick Woods committed to Michigan (LINK).

Dearborn (MI) Divine Child defensive end Aidan Hutchinson was offered by Michigan. Hutchinson is a 6’5″, 234 lb. prospect whose first offer came from LSU; Michigan was his second offer. He’s the son of former Michigan All-American defensive lineman Chris Hutchinson. As a sophomore in 2015, Aidan made 57 tackles, 5 TFLs, and 2 FFs. He has good technique for a sophomore in high school, though he is not a standout athletically.

Saraland (AL) Saraland quarterback Jack West was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Duke, Ole Miss, Stanford, and USC, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #6 pro-style quarterback, and #92 overall. If his high school’s name sounds familiar, that’s probably because Michigan pursued West’s receiver, Velus Jones (USC), toward the end of the 2016 recruiting cycle.

Hit the jump for some players who committed elsewhere, visitor lists, and some random bits.

Richmond (VA) Benedictine linebacker Ellis Brooks committed to Duke. Brooks visited Michigan recently and was scheduled to come back for the spring game, but it looks like that visit may not occur.

Denton (TX) Ryan defensive end Earnest Brown IV committed to Northwestern. Michigan had just offered him recently and did not develop much of a relationship before Brown committed.

Sayville (NY) Sayville quarterback Jack Coan committed to Wisconsin. Michigan was at the top of his list at one point, and he visited campus last year. However, Michigan seemed to back off on recruiting him as they became more and more confident in Dylan McCaffrey committing as part of the 2017 class.

Pittsburg (KS) Pittsburg tight end Trevor Kent committed to Northwestern. Kent could play either tight end or defensive end at the next level, and he was reportedly near the top of Michigan’s board as a tight end, despite not having many opportunities to catch passes in a run-oriented high school offense. It was a good week of recruiting for the Wildcats.

Clearwater (FL) Clearwater running back Adarius Lemons committed to North Carolina. Michigan is also recruiting his teammate, 2017 tight end Kane Taylor.

Maple Heights (OH) Maple Heights wide receiver JaVonte Richardson committed to Kentucky.

Fort Worth (TX) South Hills wide receiver Tylan Wallace committed to Oklahoma State. 

Here’s a monster list of players expected to visit this coming weekend for Michigan’s spring game (LINK). There are roughly 50 prospects and counting. This weekend will also include a junior day taking place on Sunday.

Here’s a slightly less extensive list of visitors from this past week/weekend (LINK), which was spring break for a lot of students.

Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy offensive tackle Robert Hainsey named a top ten that includes Michigan. He’s visiting for Michigan’s spring game.
