2017 Recruiting Update: June 21, 2016

Leesburg (GA) Lee County defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon committed to Michigan (LINK).


Peculiar (MO) Raymore-Peculiar defensive end Anthony Payne was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 250 lb. prospect with offers from Arkansas State, a few MAC schools, Tulane, and the like. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #27 strongside end, and #697 overall. He worked out at Michigan’s satellite camp in Missouri, and the coaches liked what they saw. I can’t really blame them too much if his reported measurables are accurate: a 4.67 forty, a 405 lb. bench, a 635 lb. squat, and a 39″ vertical. However, his film isn’t anything special, and he looks like a guy who could get swallowed up by offensive tackles.

Darien (CT) Darien offensive tackle Andrew Stueber was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’6″, 285 lb. prospect with offers from Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, Pitt, Rutgers, and Tennessee, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #80 offensive tackle, and #774 overall. The nice thing about recruiting the New England area is that there’s not a strong pull to remain in the geographical area, since there aren’t any noteworthy programs there. On the flip side, one reason for the lack of noteworthy programs is a lack of talent (and competition for the talent that is there). Stueber’s film is fun to watch if you like to see an FBS-caliber tackle beating up on overmatched defenders, but he’s somewhat limited athletically and stands up too high.

Hit the jump for several commitments elsewhere, along with some random tidbits.

2016 Michigan Satellite Camp Offer List

Michigan went on a wild run of offering prospects during the 2015 Summer Swarm tour. Some of them committed . . . and then decommitted. So here I’ll track the players who were offered during the 2016 satellite camp tour. That way we can refer back to them as the camps progress and as their recruitment develops.

Keep in mind that players cannot be offered during the camps, since that would be a recruiting violation. The offers have to take place after the camp has finished.

A more in-depth discussion of these prospects will be included in the players’ classes’ respective recruiting updates.
