Jahleel Billingsley – TE – Chicago (IL) Phillips: Billingsley is a 6’5″, 225 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #9 tight end, and #260 overall. Right now 83% of his Crystal Ball picks are for Ohio State.

Jase Bowen – WR – Toledo (OH) Central Catholic: Bowen is a 6’1″, 178-pounder with offers from Kentucky, Minnesota, and Virginia, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #74 wide receiver, and #561 overall. He was previously committed to Notre Dame to play baseball.

Zach Charbonnet – RB – Westlake Village (CA) Oaks Christian: Charbonnet is a 6’2″, 215-pounder with offers from Florida, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, UCLA, and USC, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #18 running back, and #275 overall.

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.

Zach Harrison – DE – Lewis Center (OH) Olentangy Orange: Harrison is a 6’6″, 240 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Penn State, among others. 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.

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.

Recruiting Update: August 9, 2017

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.
