I know it’s a little bit late in the game, but back in the spring, I didn’t have time to review all the senior film for Michigan’s 2019 signees and give them updated TTB Ratings. I did that during the 2019 Season Countdown, so here are the final TTB Ratings for the class of 2019.

S Daxton Hill: 100
He’s the best safety in the class, though it’s an unimpressive safety class overall.

RB Zach Charbonnet: 83 90
As long as he can get/stay healthy, Charbonnet has the potential to be a high draft pick in the future.

DT Chris Hinton, Jr.: 90
He should be an early contributor with high long-term upside.

2019 Season Countdown: #88 Gabe Newburg

Name: Gabe Newburg
237 lbs.
High school:
Clayton (OH) Northmont
Defensive end
Jersey number:
Last year:
Newburg was a senior in high school (LINK). He made 44 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, and 5 sacks.
TTB Rating:

Newburg was, unfortunately, hobbled by injury as a senior in high school, so it wasn’t the campaign that most wanted to see. But he was still fairly productive in limited action. Watching his junior and senior film both, it seems like he will need some time to add on to his frame. He’s listed by Michigan at 6’5″ and 237 lbs. after enrolling early, but he’s probably shorter and lighter, at least during the season. That size will only get you on the field if you’re extremely athletic, which Newburg isn’t. I do think he’s better than his senior film shows, and I still like him as a prospect, but a redshirt is almost certain.

Prediction: Redshirt

Jordan Castleberry – RB – Lakewood (OH) St. Edward: Castleberry is a 5’7″, 190 lb. prospect. He committed to Michigan as a preferred walk-on during the visit.

Danielson Ike – OT – Kansas City (MO) Rockhurst: Ike is a 6’6″, 300 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Michigan, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #44 offensive tackle, and #589 overall. Nobody has a good line on where Ike will end up, so Michigan has as good of a shot as any school. This is his official visit. UPDATE: Ike is no longer visiting.

Cornelius Johnson – WR – Greenwich (CT) Brunswick: Johnson is a 6’3″, 195-pounder with offers from Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, and Stanford, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #39 wide receiver, and #256 overall. The most recent crystal ball pick comes for Michigan from Notre Dame writer Tom Loy, but that’s the only pro-Michigan pick out of seven. This is his official visit, and he plans to announce his decision on December 19.
