Daequan Hardy – CB – Pittsburgh (PA) Penn Hills: Hardy is a 5’10”, 160 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, a couple service academies, and a few MAC schools. He claims a 4.45 forty and a 38″ vertical. I don’t always tout the underrated guys, but I really think Hardy’s recruitment is going to take off. He’s a pretty electric player.

He’s a 5-star, the #2 weakside end, and #3 overall. All thirteen Crystal Ball picks have him going to Ohio State, which sounds about right. But at least Michigan is getting him on campus, so there’s a chance…

Will Harrod – OT – Fort Washington (MD) National Christian Academy: Harrod is a 6’5″, 305-pounder with offers from Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Oregon, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #21 offensive tackle, and #188 overall. There are eleven Crystal Ball predictions in for him, and every single one is in favor of Michigan; in fact, there are some who believe he will commit to the Wolverines during his trip.
