Recruiting Update: April 30, 2018

I’m not expecting much in the way of positive news right now, since Michigan’s team and coaching staff are visiting Paris and Normandy at the moment. So here’s a list of mostly bad news:

OFF THE BOARD

Roswell (GA) Blessed Trinity linebacker Steele Chambers committed to Ohio State. Chambers, a running back/linebacker ranked as the #29 ATH in the 247 Composite, visited Ohio State and then Michigan on a northern swing in late March.

Atlanta (GA) Marist safety Kyle Hamilton committed to Notre Dame. The 6’3″, 188-pounder had also taken a recent visit to Michigan before committing; Hamilton had been in town for Michigan’s “spring game” weekend that did not involve a spring game.

Gibsonia (PA) Pine-Richland offensive tackle Andrew Kristofic committed to Notre Dame. Is this another guy who took a visit to Michigan in the past month? Yes. Yes, it is.

Malvern (PA) Malvern Prep linebacker Keith Maguire, Jr. committed to Clemson. Maguire was offered in mid-March and never made a trip to Ann Arbor.

Homerville (GA) Clinch County linebacker Trezman Marshall committed to Georgia. A guy from Homerville, GA who didn’t pick an in-state school would be kind of a dick.

Allen (TX) Allen offensive guard E.J. Ndoma-Ogar committed to Oklahoma.

Mansfield (OH) Lexington linebacker Cade Stover committed to Ohio State. I knew Stover wouldn’t come to Michigan, but he was one of my most desired prospects in the 2019 class. He can do a lot of different things for the Buckeyes.

Austin (TX) Lake Travis wide receiver Garrett Wilson committed to Ohio State. He never showed any interest in Michigan.

2019 Recruiting Update: January 23, 2018

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Belleville (MI) Belleville cornerback¬†Julian Barnett, a Michigan State commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’1″, 186-pounder who claims a 4.41 forty, along with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oregon, among others. Barnett could play corner or wide receiver at the next level. There has been much consternation from Michigan fans about why the Wolverines hadn’t offered earlier, and the pursuit has unfortunately begun after he committed to MSU in late December.

Lakeville (MN) North offensive tackle Bryce Benhart was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’7″, 285 lb. prospect with offers from Minnesota, Notre Dame, UCLA, and Wisconsin, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #43 offensive tackle, and #381 overall. The early expectation is that he will end up at Wisconsin.

Buford (GA) Buford running back Derrian Brown was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’11”, 174 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oregon, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #13 running back, and #143 overall. Brown is a teammate of 2018 Michigan signee Christian Turner, which is quite a one-two punch in the backfield.

Hit the jump for a bunch of other new offers.
