2018 Recruiting Update: The Dump

Leesburg (GA) Lee County LB Otis Reese

A couple days ago, I was hit with the annual $1,300 bill for web hosting from Flywheel. It reminded me how few site issues I’ve had since changing to Flywheel. Anyway, if you are capable and so inclined, please consider using the Paypal button on the sidebar to donate a few dollars to keep the site running. As always, you can also click on the Amazon links and buy something within 24 hours, and TTB will get a percentage. I appreciate all the support you can give. Thanks!


Rochester (MI) Adams cornerback Vincent Gray committed to Michigan (LINK).

Northville (MI) Northville kicker Jake Moody committed to Michigan as a grayshirt.


Washington (DC) St. John’s quarterback Kevin Doyle decommitted from Michigan (LINK).

Leesburg (GA) Lee County linebacker Otis Reese flipped from Michigan to Georgia. He’s a 4-star, the #5 outside linebacker, and #87 overall. Michigan’s coaching staff found out that he was flipping when he announced on the morning of National Signing Day, which is a . . . uhhh . . . less than ideal behavior from someone who has been committed to you for 1.5 years. Michigan’s coaches took heat for yanking offers late in the process previously (see: Erik Swenson), but at least those players had a chance to make other plans. If you wait until the last day to decide, somebody’s getting screwed.

Hit the jump for all the guys who committed elsewhere, along with some random bits.

8-1-17 Recruiting Update: The Color Purple

Shayne Simon

A note on programming: Today marks the beginning of football practice for our program, which means I’m going to be super-busy for the remainder of the fall. I will be continuing to post, but my responsibilities have expanded, so don’t be offended or dismayed if I’m not around quite as much.


Louisville (KY) Trinity defensive end Stephen Herron, Jr., a 2019 prospect, committed to Michigan (LINK).

Indianapolis (IN) Lawrence Central linebacker Cameron McGrone committed to Michigan. I haven’t had time to write up a commitment post yet.

Hamden (CT) Hamden Hall tight end Luke Schoonmaker committed to Michigan (LINK).


Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei offensive tackle Tommy Brown committed to Alabama. He plays on the line for 2019 quarterback J.T. Daniels, who visited Michigan this past weekend. At one time Brown was thought to be a Michigan lean.

Hit the jump for several other guys who went off the board.

There will be a lot of campers descending on Ann Arbor for the Aerial Assault QB Camp on June 18, 2016. I have heard that some non-quarterbacks are attending the camp, so I’m not sure if they’ll be receiving targets or if they’re just visiting campus during that time. Regardless, I’ll list here some of the notable prospects attending the camp:



  • Ft. Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas S Adetutu Daranijo
  • Ft. Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas QB Beau Filicchio
  • Matawan (NJ) Old Bridge QB Artur Sitkowski
  • Prattville (AL) Prattville WR Cam Taylor
  • Las Vegas (NV) Bishop Gorman QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson


  • Murrieta (CA) Valley QB Hank Bachmeier
  • Southfield (MI) Southfield QB Sam Johnson III
  • Highlands Ranch (CO) Valor Christian QB Luke McCaffrey
  • Phoenix (AZ) Pinnacle QB Spencer Rattler


  • Suwanee (GA) North Gwinnett QB Aaron McLaughlin

Speakers/counselors include:

  • Vanderbilt/Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler
  • Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DiFilippo
  • Former Michigan and NFL quarterback Elvis Grbac
  • Former Michigan Heisman winner and NFL receiver Desmond Howard
  • Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains
  • Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay
  • Miami/Indianapolis Colts quarterback Stephen Morris
  • Michigan/Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback/running back Denard Robinson
  • Quarterback coach George Whitfield

Players with a Michigan offer are in bold.

Recruiting Update: October 1, 2015

Arlington Heights (IL) St. Viator tight end Cole Kmet


Suwanee (GA) Collins Hill defensive end Tomon Fox, a North Carolina commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 230 lb. prospect who also has offers from Auburn, Miami, Notre Dame, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #30 weakside end, and #446 overall. Fox committed to UNC in June, but he is expected to give Michigan a look and potentially visit. The weakside end (a.k.a. Buck linebacker) position is somewhat shallow at Michigan, and with no proven players at the position, Michigan is looking to add someone in the 2016 class to go with Camden (NJ) Camden’s Ron Johnson, Jr.

Hit the jump for some new 2017 and 2018 offers, plus some random bits.
