8-1-17 Recruiting Update: The Color Purple

Shayne Simon

A note on programming: Today marks the beginning of football practice for our program, which means I’m going to be super-busy for the remainder of the fall. I will be continuing to post, but my responsibilities have expanded, so don’t be offended or dismayed if I’m not around quite as much.


Louisville (KY) Trinity defensive end Stephen Herron, Jr., a 2019 prospect, committed to Michigan (LINK).

Indianapolis (IN) Lawrence Central linebacker Cameron McGrone committed to Michigan. I haven’t had time to write up a commitment post yet.

Hamden (CT) Hamden Hall tight end Luke Schoonmaker committed to Michigan (LINK).


Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei offensive tackle Tommy Brown committed to Alabama. He plays on the line for 2019 quarterback J.T. Daniels, who visited Michigan this past weekend. At one time Brown was thought to be a Michigan lean.

Hit the jump for several other guys who went off the board.

6-19-17 Recruiting Update: Is there an echo in here?

Gardena (CA) Junipero Serra wide receiver Bryan Addison was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 172 lb. prospect with offers from Nebraska, Oregon, UCLA, and USC, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #9 athlete, and #221 overall. Addison could play receiver or safety at the next level. It’s next to impossible to pull someone from Junipero Serra since it’s USC territory, but miracles can happen . . . right?

Long Beach (CA) Poly quarterback Matt Corral decommitted from USC. I broke him down in my preview of 2018 quarterback recruiting (LINK), ranking him #2 of Michigan’s offers at the time. He’s a 4-star, the #2 pro-style quarterback, and #17 overall. Alabama, Florida, and Georgia have risen up on his list, and it’s not clear right now whether Michigan will pursue him or not.

Hit the jump for a couple more new offers and some other tidbits.
