Jacksonville (FL) Sandalwood linebacker/defensive end Branden Jennings committed to Michigan on Friday afternoon after previously being committed to Florida State. Jennings picked the Wolverines over offers from Auburn, Clemson, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Stanford, among others.

Jennings is listed at 6’3″ and 225 lbs. As a junior in 2019, he made 135 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, and 8 sacks. As a sophomore in 2018, he made 136 tackles and 6 sacks.

Recruiting Update: February 12, 2020

SITE NEWS UPDATE: Thanks to Brian, Michael D., Michael Z., Moser, Oday, and Sean for your generous donations! As of Tuesday afternoon, I have collected $526.02 of the $1,250 bill for Flywheel’s hosting services for the year (LINK).

The Detroit News talked to 2020 recruits about a few things, including why they didn’t choose Michigan/Michigan State (LINK). It’s always interesting reading these responses.


Markus Allen – WR – Clayton (OH) Northmont: Allen is a 6’2″, 190 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati and Pitt, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #125 wide receiver, and #796 overall. He claims a 4.62 forty. Northmont is the alma mater of Michigan defensive end Gabe Newburg, but Allen recently transferred to Northmont, so the two players don’t know each other.

Khalil Dinkins – WR – Wexford (PA) North Allegheny: Dinkins is a 6’4″, 207-pounder with offers from a couple MAC schools. He’s a 3-star, the #74 athlete, and #829 overall. He has some solid ball skills, but I think with his size and the way he moves, he will probably end up as an H-back or outside linebacker. He reminds me of former Wolverine Ricardo Miller.
