2017 Recruiting Update: August 10, 2016

James Hudson 206x

James Hudson III

Check out the message board for hype videos, some top lists, and Donald Trump (LINK).


Toledo (OH) Central Catholic defensive end James Hudson III committed to Michigan (LINK).


Miami (FL) Columbus cornerback Trajan Bandy committed to Miami. The presence of Mark Richt at Miami is clearly already making a difference. Bandy was a one-time Oklahoma commit who is now a Hurricane, and Richt also flipped former Georgia commit Deejay Dallas.

Los Angeles (CA) Cathedral defensive end Hunter Echols committed to USC. Echols was a UCLA commit not long ago, and while he showed some passing interest in his Michigan offer, I don’t think he wants to leave the west coast.

Hit the jump for several commitments elsewhere.

Recruiting Update: February 22, 2016

Eno Benjamin 711x

Littleton (CO) Valor Christian quarterback Dylan McCaffrey committed to Michigan (LINK).

Wylie (TX) East running back Eno Benjamin was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’10”, 204 lb. prospect with offers from Houston, Iowa, Miami, and Texas Tech, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #13 running back, and #170 overall. As a junior in 2015, he ran 366 times for 2,652 yards and 41 TDs; he also caught 18 passes for 232 yards and 2 TDs. Benjamin’s trainer is former Michigan running back David Underwood, and he has been trying to get a Michigan offer for a couple years now. He does not have great top-end speed and is somewhat similar to 2017 running back commit Kurt Taylor, although Taylor probably has the edge in power while Benjamin is a little more elusive. If you want a good chuckle, watch Benjamin’s highlights at the :47 mark; as he breaks free down the sideline, his receiver realizes the cornerback is trailing him in man coverage, so the receiver just keeps sprinting 50 yards downfield while the cornerback has no idea where the ball is.

Kimberly (WI) Kimberly offensive guard Logan Bruss was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 260 lb. prospect with offers from Illinois, Nebraska, and Wisconsin, among others. Ben Bredeson aside, it’s typically pretty difficult to pull Wisconsin linemen out of Wisconsin when the state of Wisconsin wants to keep them in Wisconsin. Dorms made of cheese with beer faucets are hard to turn down.

Hit the jump for a bunch more new offers, a new 2018 offer, and some random bits.
