Recruiting Update: October 19, 2017

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a recruiting update. There’s only so much time in the week, and Michigan recruiting has been pretty slow, anyway. But enough stuff has built up by this point that I think I should clear the cache.


Washington (DC) St. John’s quarterback Kevin Doyle committed to Michigan (LINK).

Hit the jump for some new offers and some guys who committed elsewhere.

Prediction: Who will fill out the 2018 class?

It’s an impossible task to guess who will sign with Michigan in the 2018 class.

But I eat impossible tasks for breakfast.

So here’s my best guess for 2018. I’m adding five to the current number of open slots because I assume attrition will occur. So here are the 14 players who will definitely, positively sign with Michigan next February (or earlier).

2018 Recruiting Update: December 14, 2016

Pompano Beach (FL) North Broward wide receiver Kevin Austin was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 185 lb. prospect with offers from Miami, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #43 wide receiver, and #261 overall. As a junior in 2016, he caught 41 passes for 1,021 yards (24.9 yards/catch) and 13 touchdowns; he also ran 46 times for 454 yards and 6 TDs.

Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy offensive tackle Daniel Faalele was offered by Michigan. Faalele is 6’9″, 390 lbs. and his nickname is “Baby Shaq.” He moved to IMG Academy from Australia, which is where Michigan originally saw him during their satellite camp tour this past summer.

Houston (TX) Lamar cornerback D’shawn Jamison was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’10”, 168 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Houston, and TCU, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #29 cornerback, and #262 overall for 2018. He’s a feisty corner with good speed who’s a surprisingly solid hitter for his size.

Justin (TX) Northwest offensive tackle Darrell Simpson was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’7″, 330 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Baylor, Florida, Georgia, Ohio State, and Texas A&M, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #6 offensive tackle, and #55 overall. Simpson has some bad weight on him, but he’s a powerful blocker who moves pretty well.


Camp Hill (PA) Camp Hill tight end Zack Kuntz committed to Penn State. It’s hard to justify anyone picking Penn State based on their history within the football program and the athletic department, but their team success this past season and the production of tight end Mike Gesicki this season were obviously convincing enough for the #1 tight end in the class.

Cibolo (TX) Steele safety Caden Sterns committed to LSU. Michigan had just offered him in early November before he committed in late November, so it was a short-lived romance. Sterns is the #4 safety and #44 overall player in the country.


Marietta (GA) Lassiter cornerback Derrik Allen named Michigan to his top ten. I don’t expect much to come from it in the long run, but he is a 5-star and the #21 player in the country.
