It’s been a while since I posted a recruiting update, so here are some updates from October and the first half of November.


Tulsa (OK) Booker T. Washington safety Daxton Hill committed to Michigan (LINK).

Everett (MA) Everett wide receiver/cornerback Mike Sainristil committed to Michigan (LINK).


Douglasville (GA) Douglas County center Parker Ball was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 275 lb. prospect with no other offers from FBS programs.

Cleveland (OH) St. Ignatius linebacker Tommy Eichenberg was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 225 lb. prospect who committed to Boston College back in June. He’s a 4-star, the #19 inside linebacker, and #358 overall. He visited Michigan for the Penn State game a few weekends ago. He’s the brother of Notre Dame offensive lineman Liam Eichenberg.

Dacula (GA) Dacula cornerback Jalen Perry decommitted from Georgia. He’s a 6’1″, 188-pounder whose crystal ball picks are currently 100% for South Carolina, but he took an unofficial visit to Michigan a few weeks ago and will visit officially this weekend. He’s a 4-star, the #19 cornerback, and #172 overall.

Hit the jump for more updates.

Millis (MA) Milford offensive tackle Kevin Pyne reclassified from the 2020 class to the 2019 class. He’s a 6’7″, 275 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Clemson, Notre Dame, and a bunch of others. He’s still listed as a 2020 recruit on 247 Sports, where he’s ranked as a 4-star, the #10 offensive tackle, and #102 overall in the 2020 Composite rankings. His crystal balls are 100% in favor of Notre Dame.

Bellflower (CA) St. John Bosco cornerback Chris Steele decommitted from USC. He’s a 4-star, the #6 cornerback, and #40 overall. He eliminated Michigan prior to picking the Trojans, and Florida seems to have picked up some steam in his recruitment.


Lakdeville (MN) North offensive tackle Bryce Benhart committed to Nebraska. At #184 overall in the 2019 class, he’s Nebraska’s second highest rated commit in 2019, behind linebacker Nick Henrich, who’s #134.

Buford (GA) Buford running back Derrian Brown committed to Texas.

Cedar Hill (TX) Trinity safety Lewis Cine committed to Georgia. When Michigan began recruiting Cine, he was in Don Brown’s territory of Massachusetts, but a move to Texas seemed to portend a downturn for Michigan’s chances. He tweeted out before his announcement that people thought they knew what he would do, but they had no idea . . . so he committed to Georgia, which had 83% of the crystal ball picks.

Largo (FL) Largo offensive guard Raymond Collins committed to South Florida.

Gastonia (NC) Hunter Huss cornerback Tony Davis committed to Duke.

Destrehan (LA) Destrehan running back John Emery, Jr. committed to LSU. He had previously been committed to Georgia. Emery is a 5-star, the #2 running back, and #23 overall.

Katy (TX) Cinco Ranch linebacker David Gbenda committed to Texas. He’s a 4-star, the #15 inside linebacker, and #269 overall.

Apopka (FL) Wekiva cornerback Renardo Green committed to Florida State.

Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas defensive end Braylen Ingraham committed to Alabama.

Avon (IN) Avon running back Sampson James committed to Indiana. He had previously been committed to Ohio State. Indiana’s running back coach has to feel pretty good about flipping an Ohio State commit . . . partly because that running back coach is former Michigan player Mike Hart.

Columbus (OH) St. Frances de Sales defensive tackle Rodas Johnson committed to Wisconsin.

Dunlap (IL) Dunlap tight end Joseph Miamen committed to Iowa. He’s a 3-star, the #38 tight end, and #935 overall.

Fort Lauderdale (FL) University School running back Kenny McIntosh committed to Georgia. He takes the spot vacated by Emery (see above).

Carrollton (GA) Carrollton offensive guard Ty Murray committed to Louisville. Murray was a little-known prospect when he was offered by Michigan, and it seemed likely that he would commit to Michigan at one point. The longer it went without happening, the more it seemed like he maybe didn’t have a committable offer.

Frankfort (KY) Western Hills athlete Wandale Robinson committed to Kentucky. He’s a 4-star, the #4 all-purpose back, and #224 overall. He’s Kentucky’s only 4-star commit in the 2019 class. Robinson had been strongly considering Michigan at one point, but that ship sailed a while ago.

St. Louis (MO) Trinity wide receiver Marcus Washington committed to Texas.

St. Louis (MO) Cardinal Ritter wide receiver Jameson Williams committed to Ohio State.

Gardena (CA) Juniperro Serra cornerback Max Williams committed to USC.


Here’s a list of visitors for Michigan’s games against Wisconsin (LINK), Penn State (LINK), and Indiana (LINK).
