Recruiting Update: October 14, 2015

Ten-year veteran NFL safety, or high school senior Kareem Walker?


ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2016

Ann Arbor (MI) Skyline linebacker Daelin Hayes decommitted from USC. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #9 outside linebacker, and #105 overall.He recently took a visit to Notre Dame, has set one up for Ohio State, and is also looking at Oklahoma, Ole Miss, and Texas. Michigan does not appear to be on the list, and I’m not sure they should be. Hayes – the cousin of former Michigan running back Justice Hayes – went to Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary’s as a youngster, transferred to California for his junior year, and then returned to the state of Michigan for his senior season. In the meantime, he has suffered multiple season-ending injuries and played only a handful of total games. At 6’3″, 254 lbs., recruiting analysts rave about his athleticism when he’s healthy, but he might just be one of those guys who can never stay healthy. He also has some people trying to steer him away from staying within the state.

Torrance (CA) North linebacker¬†Mique Juarez¬†also decommitted from USC. He’s a 6’2″, 222 lb. prospect who has seen a number of Crystal Ball predictions go in favor of UCLA over the past couple months. He’s a 247 Composite 5-star, the #2 outside linebacker, and #17 overall. The U.S. Army All-American said before he decommitted from the Trojans that he wanted to take an official visit to Michigan, so the Wolverines may be able to get in the race. However, the Bruins are having a pretty solid season (4-1 so far), and Juarez seems like a guy who wants to stay pretty close to home.

Hit the jump for some 2017 and 2018 offers, some guys who went off the board, and some random bits.

Recruiting Update: October 1, 2015

Arlington Heights (IL) St. Viator tight end Cole Kmet


ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2016

Suwanee (GA) Collins Hill defensive end Tomon Fox, a North Carolina commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 230 lb. prospect who also has offers from Auburn, Miami, Notre Dame, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #30 weakside end, and #446 overall. Fox committed to UNC in June, but he is expected to give Michigan a look and potentially visit. The weakside end (a.k.a. Buck linebacker) position is somewhat shallow at Michigan, and with no proven players at the position, Michigan is looking to add someone in the 2016 class to go with Camden (NJ) Camden’s Ron Johnson, Jr.

Hit the jump for some new 2017 and 2018 offers, plus some random bits.
