Sadly, this will be the final recruiting update dedicated to the 2022 class, since National Signing Day took place this past Wednesday. There are still a few uncommitted prospects with Michigan offers, such as Washington offensive tackle Josh Conerly, but any developments with those players will be rolled into 2023 and 2024 recruiting updates.


Lawndale (CA) Leuzinger outside linebacker Kevonte Henry flipped from Michigan to Oklahoma (LINK).


Bellflower (CA) St. John Bosco cornerback Tayvion Beasley committed to Jackson State, Deion Sanders’s FCS program.

Lake Charles (LA) College Prep running back TreVonte Citizen committed to Miami.

San Diego (CA) Lincoln cornerback Jahlil Florence committed to Oregon.

Kevonte Henry, Ex-Wolverine

Lawndale (CA) Leuzinger outside linebacker/defensive end Kevonte Henry committed to Oklahoma on National Signing Day after having been committed to Michigan. Henry committed to Michigan back in June 2021, but the departure of recruiting coordinator Courtney Morgan was a big development. After Morgan left to lead Washington’s recruiting department, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that Henry would not be in the class, and Michigan did not pursue him very much over the past month or two.

I gave Henry a TTB Rating of 82 when he committed (LINK). He ended up ranked as a 3-star, the #33 edge player, and #396 overall. I think Henry has a chance to be a pretty good player, but recruiting kids from California is tough because a lot of them get homesick. If Morgan wasn’t going to be a part of Michigan’s program to give him an anchor, then even if Henry had stuck with Michigan initially, he very easily could have ended up in the transfer portal and closer to home in a year or two, anyway.

Michigan signed a total of 22 players in the class, including a couple defensive end/outside linebacker types in 4-star Derrick Moore and 3-star Micah Pollard.
