Name: Breeon Ishmail
225 lbs.
High school: 
Hamilton (OH) Princeton
Jersey number:
Last year: 
Ishmail was a senior in high school (LINK). He made 64 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 3 fumble recoveries, and 2 interceptions (1 returned for a TD).
TTB Rating:

Ishmail was one of the later commitments in the class of 2023, announcing his intention to play for Michigan in late November. A whirling dervish of a player, Ishmail did a little bit of everything for Princeton’s defense, playing middle linebacker, overhang defender, and edge rusher. They didn’t rush him as much as they could have, or else his sack totals should have been higher.

Ishmail has the length and closing speed to be a productive pass rusher, but he’s a little bit light right now and doesn’t have a whole lot of technique in his arsenal. Rated as a 3-star, the #91 linebacker, and #1107 overall in the 247 Composite, Michigan lists him as an EDGE, which I think is his best fit. He will need a couple seasons to pack on enough weight to hold up against kickout blocks, and then he’ll have a chance to see the field.

Prediction: Redshirt

A.J. Barner – TE – Indiana: Barner is a 6’6″, 250 lb. starting tight end and captain from the Hoosiers. After spending three seasons in Bloomington, he has two seasons of eligibility left. This season he caught 28 passes for 199 yards and 3 touchdowns. Barner was a 3-star, the #51 tight end, and #1147 overall in the class of 2020. With Michigan losing Erick All (Iowa), Luke Schoonmaker (NFL), Louis Hansen (transfer), Carter Selzer (graduation), and Joel Honigford (graduation), they need some reinforcements at the tight end position.

Josaiah Stewart – OLB – Coastal Carolina: Stewart is a 6’2″, 230 lb. outside linebacker whom Michigan offered when he came out of high school in 2021. He went to Coastal Carolina and had an outstanding freshman season followed up by a pretty solid sophomore year. Now that he’s in the transfer portal, he has two years of eligibility remaining and appears to be choosing between Michigan and USC.
