Final TTB Ratings for 2018

Thanks to Bryan and Keith for the recent, generous donations through Paypal!

It’s been a long time coming because I’ve been so busy, but here are the final TTB Ratings for the class of 2018.

A note on the ratings: These are Michigan-specific ratings, so a guy who would be an instant starter at Eastern Michigan might not be quite so much of an individual standout playing against Michigan’s opponents . . . and he might even have a hard time getting on the field over some other Wolverines. It’s tricky trying to determine how the depth chart will shake out over the next three to five years, but I’m here for the heavy lifting. For more of an explanation, check out this page here (LINK).

Hit the jump for the final rankings.

He actually has yet to play a down at Belleville, but he transferred there from Detroit (MI) Martin Luther King, Jr. following his junior year. Woods picked the Wolverines over offers from Air Force, Cincinnati, Fresno State, and a bunch of MAC programs.

Woods is listed at 6’2″ and anywhere from 240 to 255 lbs. He claims a 4.78 forty, a 315 lb. bench press, a 365 lb. squat, and a 405 lb. deadlift.

Visitors: June 1-3, 2018

Marietta (GA) Marietta QB Harrison Bailey (image via MDJonline)


Griffin Korican – OG – Seattle (WA) O’Dea: Korican is a 6’5″, 295 lb. prospect who is currently committed to Oregon State as a preferred walk-on. Though he signed a financial aid agreement in February, the lack of scholarship money means he can still attend another school. He plans to make a final decision on where he will play football after he takes the visit on June 2. He’s a 247 Sports 2-star, the #118 offensive guard, and #2595 overall.


Harrison Bailey – QB – Marietta (GA) Marietta: Bailey is a 6’5″, 228 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #2 pro-style quarterback, and #69 overall.  As a sophomore in 2017, he completed 126/203 passes for 1,824 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. There are four crystal ball picks in right now, with two for Michigan, one for Alabama, and one for Florida.

2018 Recruiting Update: The Dump

Leesburg (GA) Lee County LB Otis Reese

A couple days ago, I was hit with the annual $1,300 bill for web hosting from Flywheel. It reminded me how few site issues I’ve had since changing to Flywheel. Anyway, if you are capable and so inclined, please consider using the Paypal button on the sidebar to donate a few dollars to keep the site running. As always, you can also click on the Amazon links and buy something within 24 hours, and TTB will get a percentage. I appreciate all the support you can give. Thanks!


Rochester (MI) Adams cornerback Vincent Gray committed to Michigan (LINK).

Northville (MI) Northville kicker Jake Moody committed to Michigan as a grayshirt.


Washington (DC) St. John’s quarterback Kevin Doyle decommitted from Michigan (LINK).

Leesburg (GA) Lee County linebacker Otis Reese flipped from Michigan to Georgia. He’s a 4-star, the #5 outside linebacker, and #87 overall. Michigan’s coaching staff found out that he was flipping when he announced on the morning of National Signing Day, which is a . . . uhhh . . . less than ideal behavior from someone who has been committed to you for 1.5 years. Michigan’s coaches took heat for yanking offers late in the process previously (see: Erik Swenson), but at least those players had a chance to make other plans. If you wait until the last day to decide, somebody’s getting screwed.

Hit the jump for all the guys who committed elsewhere, along with some random bits.
