Casey Phinney, Ex-Wolverine

Tyler Martin and Casey Phinney

Dedham (MA) Noble & Greenough linebacker Casey Phinney decommitted from Michigan on Saturday, announcing a commitment to Boston College instead.

Phinney committed to Michigan in April, and you could probably tell that I was not high on him as a prospect (LINK). So this decommitment does not disappoint me too much. I would prefer to still have Phinney committed if Michigan had been able to land offensive guard teammate Drew Kendall, but that ship seems to have sailed. Phinney by himself? That wasn’t that interesting to me. He is currently a 3-star, the #50 inside linebacker, and #1189 overall.

Interestingly, Phinney is also good friends with 2022 linebacker Tyler Martin (see the above picture), who committed to Michigan recently (LINK).

Michigan has now suffered two decommitments in the 2021 class, Phinney and Clayton (OH) Northmont wide receiver Markus Allen. There remain three linebackers committed to the Wolverines: Junior Colson, Jaydon Hood, and Tyler McLaurin.

2021 Recruiting Update: December 3, 2018

It’s been a while since I’ve done a recruiting update on the 2021 class. That’s because they’re over two years away from signing. But now it’s time to catch up on everything we’ve missed. These aren’t necessarily “new” offers, but nobody else is doing recruiting updates on 2021 prospects, so you probably haven’t heard of many of these players.


Christian Abraham – CB – Paramus (NJ) Catholic: Abraham is a 5’11”, 195 lb. prospect with an offer from Rutgers. That’s the alma mater of Jabrill Peppers, Rashan Gary, and Drew Singleton, though the former two are gone to the NFL, and Singleton announced he would transfer. Michigan does still have safeties coach Chris Partridge, who was the head coach at Paramus.

Hayden Conner – OT – Katy (TX) Taylor: Conner is a 6’5″, 298 lb. prospect with offers from Georgia, LSU, and Texas, among others. He’s the 247 Sports 4-star, the #5 offensive tackle, and #27 overall.

Hit the jump for a bunch of other offers.
