OFF THE BOARD
Orlando (FL) Edgewater cornerback Cai Bates (4-star, #11 CB, #107 overall) committed to LSU. He had visited Michigan and put the Wolverines in his top group, but most of the buzz was about him staying south.
Springfield (OH) Springfield cornerback Aaron Scott (4-star, #5 CB, #52 overall) committed to Ohio State. This one stings because two of Michigan’s top cornerback prospects, Scott and Bryce West, both have verbally committed to the Buckeyes. But the writing was on the wall when Scott scheduled his announcement for July 30, which is his Buckeye fan father’s birthday. You’re not going to pick the team your dad hates on your dad’s birthday unless you hate your dad.
