Recruiting Update: November 13, 2012

St. Louis (MO) DeSmet offensive tackle Andy Bauer (in white)

St. Louis (MO) DeSmet offensive tackle Andy Bauer decommitted from Missouri.  Bauer was originally very high on Michigan, but then he committed to the hometown Tigers.  Alabama and LSU are high on the list now, and the Tigers are still under consideration.  Michigan could still have a chance here, but it’s a long shot.

Brooklyn (NY) Poly Prep offensive guard Jay Hayes, a 2014 prospect, committed to Notre Dame.  The commitment sort of came out of nowhere, and Hayes was thought to be high on Michigan until the commitment.

Chandler (AZ) Hamilton cornerback Cole Luke committed to Notre Dame.  Luke was interested in Michigan early in the process, but it never amounted to much besides some talk.  Here’s the scouting report I wrote about him back in May.

Rivals released its top 250 recruits for the class of 2014, and the list includes Michigan commit Michael Ferns III.

Weekend Visitors: February 10-12, 2012

Four juniors and one sophomore prospect are expected to visit Michigan this weekend:

St. Louis (MO) DeSmet OT Andy Bauer (2014)
Bauer is only a sophomore in high school, but he was named a sophomore All-American and First Team All-Missouri.  He’s 6’5″ and 290 lbs., benches 315 lbs., and reports a 500 lb. squat.  Those are amazing numbers for a high school sophomore.  Bauer has not yet been offered by the Wolverines, but a verbal offer might be forthcoming.  Class of 2012 wide receiver Durron Neal, who was offered by Michigan but chose Oklahoma, also goes to DeSmet.

Columbus (OH) Marion Franklin WR Jaron Dukes

Despite growing up in the heart of Buckeye country, Dukes grew up as a Michigan fan.  The 6’4″, 195 lb. Dukes received a Michigan offer last week and has been rumored to be a candidate to make an early commitment to the Wolverines.

Parker (CO) Ponderosa OT Chris Fox
Much like Dukes (except without living in such a horrible state), Fox grew up as a Michigan fan.  He’s 6’6″, 297 lbs. and really impressed at several camps last summer.  Colorado, Iowa, Ohio State, and Purdue have also offered Fox.  He looks like a guard or perhaps a right tackle to me, but either way, 247 Sports rates him the #44 player nationally and Rivals rates him at #46.

Novi (MI) Catholic Central RB Wyatt Shallman
Shallman’s recruitment has been well documented here (a scouting report, for example).  Most experts believe he’ll be a Wolverine sooner or later.  Meanwhile, Shallman was recently named the 160th-best prospect in the country, according to Rivals.

Crete (IL) Crete-Monee WR Laquon Treadwell
Treadwell is a 6’3″, 183 lb. wideout whose teammate is former Michigan commit Anthony Standifer.  Treadwell had 75 catches for 1,400 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior, and Michigan was the first school to offer him.  He has since earned offers from Ohio State and USC, along with several others.

Peoria (IL) Manual OT Logan Tuley-Tillman
Tuley-Tillman is a 6’7″, 280 lb. offensive tackle who mentioned several times that Michigan was a childhood favorite.  He has since been offered by Alabama (and many others) and recently stated that the Wolverines and Crimson Tide are neck-and-neck on top of his offer list.  He’s the #84 player overall to 247 Sports and #109 overall to Rivals.
