Visitors: May 29-June 4, 2017



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.

Tarik Black – WR – Cheshire (CT) Cheshire Academy: Black is a 6’3″, 204 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Stanford, and UCLA, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #17 wide receiver, and #131 overall. The U.S. Army All-American will be taking his official visit this weekend. Michigan held a camp at Cheshire Academy this summer, and Black is one of a few targets Michigan is heavily in the mix for right now. As of Wednesday night, the Crystal Ball is 62% in favor of the Wolverines for Black.

Corey Bolds – DT – Paramus (NJ) Catholic: Bolds is a 6’3″, 276 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, and Rutgers, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #38 defensive tackle, and #462 overall. He’s a teammate of 2017 linebacker Drew Singleton (see below).

Carter Dunaway – TE – Bloomfield Hills (MI) Brother Rice: Dunaway is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Ja’Raymond Hall – OT – Oak Park (MI) Oak Park: Hall is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Brad Hawkins, Jr. – WR – Suffield (CT) Suffield Academy: Hawkins is a 6’1″, 202 lb. prospect who signed with Michigan in the 2016 class. He was an NCAA non-qualifier and is now headed to Suffield Academy for a prep year. He graduated from Camden (NJ) Camden, where he was a teammate with freshman defensive end Ron Johnson, Jr. Here’s Hawkins’s commitment profile from the summer of 2015 (LINK).

Recruiting Update: January 11, 2016

Egg Harbor City (NJ) Cedar Creek RB Bo Melton

Rancho Santa Margarita (CA) Catholic wide receiver Dylan Crawford committed to Michigan at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl (LINK).

Paintsville (KY) Paintsville linebacker Kash Daniel, a Kentucky commit, was offered by Michigan. Daniel is a 6’1″, 227 lb. prospect who’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #14 inside linebacker, and #400 overall. Daniel played in the Army All-American Bowl. He committed to Kentucky on this past Fourth of July, and as an early enrollee, he said he’s solid with the Wildcats.

Sachse (TX) Sachse cornerback Jared Mayden decommitted from Oregon. Mayden is a 6’1″, 190 lb. prospect who is heavily considering Florida State and LSU at this point. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #10 cornerback, and #128 overall. Mayden committed to Oregon in July and took an official visit to Michigan in September, but it does not appear the Wolverines are an option at this point. He played in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl last week.

Hit the jump for another 2016 player added to the board, some new 2017 offers, some guys who committed elsewhere, and some random bits.
