Eric Gray, Ex-Wolverine

Memphis (TN) Lausanne RB Eric Gray

Memphis (TN) Lausanne running back Eric Gray decommitted from Michigan on Saturday. Gray committed to Michigan in early July, but his commitment has been viewed as being “soft” for a couple months. I had originally given him a TTB Rating of 82 (LINK). He’s a 4-star, the #3 all-purpose back, and #209 overall.

Gray’s commitment over the summer meant that he never visited Michigan for the atmosphere in Ann Arbor on game days. He had set up a visit a couple weeks ago, but he chose to visit Tennessee instead. While he had not been expected to sign with Michigan prior to that, the lack of a game visit against Indiana seemed to cement Michigan as an also-ran.

Michigan now has just one running back in the 2019 class, Zach Charbonnet. Michigan recently landed a commitment from Amauri Pesek-Hickson, who’s a running back/linebacker, and they have offered Florida running back D.J. Williams, an Appalachian State commit. Pesek-Hickson is expected to play linebacker in college, and Williams is probably going to stay somewhere in the south. With only three weekends remaining (including this one) for official visits, the Wolverines might be scrambling to get someone on campus before the early signing window.

Tim Baldwin, Ex-Wolverine

Tim Baldwin, Jr.

Ashburn (VA) Broad Run running back Tim Baldwin, a 2020 prospect, decommitted from Michigan on Monday. He had committed to Michigan back on November 4 (LINK).

This development does not move the needle for me. He’s a 3-star, the #29 running back, and #342 overall. He’s not a bad player, but he’s also not as explosive of a runner as I would like to see Michigan get. I’m still waiting for the Wolverines to get a home run threat at running back, which they have not had in a while.
