2018 Recruiting Update: The Dump

Leesburg (GA) Lee County LB Otis Reese

A couple days ago, I was hit with the annual $1,300 bill for web hosting from Flywheel. It reminded me how few site issues I’ve had since changing to Flywheel. Anyway, if you are capable and so inclined, please consider using the Paypal button on the sidebar to donate a few dollars to keep the site running. As always, you can also click on the Amazon links and buy something within 24 hours, and TTB will get a percentage. I appreciate all the support you can give. Thanks!


Rochester (MI) Adams cornerback Vincent Gray committed to Michigan (LINK).

Northville (MI) Northville kicker Jake Moody committed to Michigan as a grayshirt.


Washington (DC) St. John’s quarterback Kevin Doyle decommitted from Michigan (LINK).

Leesburg (GA) Lee County linebacker Otis Reese flipped from Michigan to Georgia. He’s a 4-star, the #5 outside linebacker, and #87 overall. Michigan’s coaching staff found out that he was flipping when he announced on the morning of National Signing Day, which is a . . . uhhh . . . less than ideal behavior from someone who has been committed to you for 1.5 years. Michigan’s coaches took heat for yanking offers late in the process previously (see: Erik Swenson), but at least those players had a chance to make other plans. If you wait until the last day to decide, somebody’s getting screwed.

Hit the jump for all the guys who committed elsewhere, along with some random bits.

With all the hype surrounding the season, it’s been a while since I have updated you on Michigan’s recruiting situation, including the 2018 class. Here’s a look at the new faces of juniors who are wrapping up their seasons at this time of year.


Columbus (OH) St. Francis DeSales linebacker Brian Asamoah was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 205 lb. prospect with offers from Indiana, Penn State, Pitt, and UCLA, among others. He’s an aggressive outside linebacker type who would probably fit what Michigan wants as a SAM linebacker. He attends the alma mater of former Michigan lineman Patrick Omameh.

Stafford (VA) North Stafford offensive tackle Nana Asiedu was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’6″, 265 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #11 offensive tackle, and #99 overall. A lithe left tackle prospect, Asiedu moves really well, finishes blocks, but generally does a good job of destroying people and then just calmly jogging away.

Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei offensive tackle Tommy Brown was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’7″, 315 lb. prospect with offers from Cal, Colorado, Florida, Missouri, and UCLA, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #7 offensive tackle, and #57 overall. He’s a teammate of a couple of fellow recent Michigan offerees, 2019 quarterback J.T. Daniels and 2019 wide receiver Bru McCoy.

Hit the jump for several more new offers in the 2018 class.
