Visitors: Michigan vs. Rutgers

Emil Ekiyor – OG – Indianapolis (IN) Cathedral: Ekiyor is “committed” to Michigan (LINK). He has been flirting with – and visiting – Alabama a lot lately, and many people expect him to flip to the Crimson Tide. A planned visit to Michigan has been canceled.

Hassan Haskins – RB – Eureka (MO) Eureka: Haskins isa  6’1″, 202 lb. prospect with offers from Memphis, Michigan, Purdue, and others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #94 running back, and #1552 overall. He received a Michigan offer a couple weeks ago, and there’s a decent chance that he ends up committing to Michigan soon.

Hit the jump for some other visitors from the 2019 and 2020 classes.

Naples (FL) Naples cornerback/safety Sammy Faustin committed to Michigan (LINK).

Norcross (GA) Greater Atlanta Christian strongside end Chris Hinton, Jr., a 2019 prospect, committed to Michigan.


Houston (TX) Westfield defensive tackle Keondre Coburn committed to Texas. At 6’1″ and 329 lbs., the #103 overall prospect seems destined to be a fire hydrant of a nose tackle.

Pensacola (FL) Escambia wide receiver Jacob Copeland commmitted to Florida. He’s the #9 wideout and #52 overall.

Hampton (GA) Dutchtown safety Trey Dean committed to Tennessee.

Houston (TX) Dekaney tight end Malcolm Epps committed to Texas. The Longhorns now have two tight end commitments, which should be a signal that Mustapha Muhammad is headed elsewhere (a.k.a. Michigan).

Mission Viejo (CA) Mission Viejo cornerback Olaijah Griffin committed to UCLA. The son of rapper Warren G is the #49 player and #8 cornerback in the class.

Owings Mills (MD) McDonogh defensive tackle P.J. Mustipher committed to Penn State. The #98 overall prospect in 2018 is the younger brother of Notre Dame redshirt junior offensive guard Sam Mustipher.

Sunny Odogwu – OT – Miami-FL: Odogwu is a 6’8″, 325 lb. tackle who’s leaving the Miami Hurricanes. He will be a fifth year senior in the fall, so he’s eligible to play immediately as a grad transfer. He started 14 games during his career, but he suffered a torn MCL in 2015 and a broken leg in 2016, the latter of which caused him to miss the final eight games of the year. A Nigerian immigrant, he attended Baltimore (MD) St. Frances and Hargrave Military Academy before enrolling at Miami in 2013.


James Ohonba – OG – Stockbridge (GA) Woodland: Ohonba is a 6’5″, 320 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, LSU, Michigan, and USC, which make up his top four. He’s a 4-star, the #23 offensive tackle, and #306 overall.


Chris Hinton, Jr. – DE – Norcross (GA) Greater Atlanta Christian: Hinton is a 6’4″, 265 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Stanford, and USC, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #2 strongside end, and #14 overall. He was originally being looked at as an offensive lineman, but now he wants to play defensive line. He looks like an offensive guard to me and lacks great defensive instincts, but he has a couple years to improve before hitting college. He’s the son of Chris Hinton – hence the name – who played at Northwestern before an NFL career with the Falcons and Colts.
