Quavian Carter – S – Leesburg (GA) Lee County: Carter is a 6’4″, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Penn State and Tennessee, among others. I’m very surprised he doesn’t have a ton of other big offers, because he’s big and fast and aggressive. He might end up growing into a linebacker at the next level.

Jaylen Lewis – CB – Brownsville (TN) Haywood: Lewis is a 6’2″, 175-pounder with offers from Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, and Ole Miss, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #46 cornerback, and #462 overall. Michigan has sensed a weakness in Tennessee with the Volunteers facing trouble from the NCAA, so the Wolverines are offering every decent prospect in the state to try to take advantage.

2. Peter Woods – DE – AL
4. Francis Mauigoa – OT – CA
5. Arch Manning – QB – MS (no offer, son of Peyton/Eli Manning’s brother Cooper)
6. Malachi Nelson – QB – CA
7. Brenan Vernon – DE – OH

As I mentioned in my article where I discussed how to fix Michigan recruiting (LINK), I think virtually every single one of these top-100 kids should be offered relatively soon.
