I recently put up commitment posts for the following players:

  • RB Jasper Parker (LINK)
  • WR Jacob Washington (LINK)
  • OL Kaden Strayhorn (LINK)
  • DE Julius Holly (LINK)

OFF THE BOARD

Las Vegas (NV) Bishop Gorman offensive guard Seuseu Alofaituli (4-star, #3 IOL, #70 overall) committed to Miami. He had visited Michigan officially at the beginning of June and was a teammate of incoming freshman running back Micah Ka’apana.

Princeton (NJ) Hun School linebacker Kamar Archie (4-star, #32 LB, #286 overall) committed to Rutgers. He had visited Michigan several times and took an official to Ann Arbor in late June. There were rumors long ago that Michigan might be “too big of a stage” for his liking, so perhaps that was an important factor in his decision.
