Van Fillinger – DE – Draper (UT) Corner Canyon: Fillinger decommitted from Texas immediately after they fired defensive coordinator Todd Orlando. He’s a 4-star, the #13 strongside end, and #285 overall. He could very well grow into a defensive tackle, which is something Michigan needs, but the home-state Utes appear to be his likeliest destination.
Dee Beckwith – TE – Florence (AL) Florence: Beckwith is a 6’3″, 210 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Michigan, and South Carolina, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #21 athlete, and #305 overall. Florence is the alma mater of current Michigan safety J’Marick Woods.
Elijah Gaines – CB – Alexandria (VA) Episcopal: Gaines is a 6’3″, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Duke, Pitt, and Purdue. Despite his listed size (which might be exaggerated) he moves extremely well and could stick at corner in college. Episcopal is the alma mater of Michigan defensive end Luiji Vilain.
Jahmyr Gibbs – RB – Dalton (GA) Dalton: Gibbs is a 5’11”, 180-pounder with offers from Iowa State, Louisville, and Texas A&M. As a junior in 2018, he ran the ball 163 times for 1,431 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Kobe Pryor – RB – Cedartown (GA) Cedartown: Pryor is a 6’0″, 200 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Texas, and West Virginia, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #47 running back, and #611 overall. He attends the alma mater of former Georgia (and currently Cleveland Browns) running back Nick Chubb.
Chantz Williams – DE – Orange Park (FL) Oakleaf: Williams is a 6’4″, 235 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, and Miami. He’s a 4-star, the #8 weakside end, and #129 overall. He claims a 4.78 forty and a 4.69 shuttle.
Dazalin Worsham – WR – Trussville (AL) Hewitt-Trussville: Worsham is a 6’0″, 169-pounder with offers from Auburn and Clemson . . . and the school he committed to in April of 2018, Alabama. Quarterback Paul Tyson and offensive tackle Pierce Quick are two 2019 guys from Hewitt-Trussville who signed with Alabama, so it’s a pipeline for the Crimson Tide. I don’t imagine a Michigan offer will do much here.
Here’s a list of visitors for this coming weekend, including a bunch of 2020 guys (LINK).
Eastern Michigan signed 2019 Columbus (OH) Northland running back John Branham, the brother of 2020 Michigan wide receiver commit Kalil Branham (LINK). That could be a good development in order to keep Kalil committed, since the brothers will be playing FBS ball in neighboring cities.
Sav’ell Smalls – DE – Seattle (WA) Garfield: Smalls is a 6’3″, 230 lb. prospect who’s a 5-star, the #1 outside linebacker, and #4 overall. He left Michigan out of his top 12.
