Visitors: Michigan vs. Air Force

LaQuon Treadwell


  • Detroit (MI) Cass Tech defensive end Joshua Alabi.  Alabi is a 6’4″, 245 lb. defensive end from the class of 2015.
  • Nashville (TN) Montgomery Bell offensive tackle Alex Bars.  Bars is a 6’6″, 255 lb. kid who doubles as a defensive end, but Michigan has offered the 2014 prospect as an offensive tackle.  His brother is Michigan true freshman Blake Bars, but he also has a brother at Penn State.
  • Pickerington (OH) North tight end Jake Butt.  Butt is already committed to Michigan.
  • Detroit (MI) Cass Tech quarterback Jayru Campbell.  The 6’3″, 175 lb. Campbell led Cass Tech to a state championship last year despite being just a freshman.  He has offers from Alabama and Notre Dame already. (Highlights.)
  • Detroit (MI) Cass Tech offensive tackle/guard David Dawson.  Dawson is already committed to Michigan.
  • Grand Rapids (MI) Christian offensive tackle Tommy Doles.  Doles is a class of 2014 kid who has visited Michigan multiple times and lists them among his leaders.  Iowa State is the only other team to offer so far.
  • Detroit (MI) Cass Tech running back/linebacker Deon Drake.  Drake is a 6’1″, 215-pounder with offers from Iowa, Michigan State, Nebraska, and Notre Dame, among others. (Highlights.)
  • Muskergon (MI) Muskegon offensive guard Kenny Finley.  Finley is a 6’4″, 270 lb. guard from the 2014 class with zero offers.  Muskegon is typically a good program, but no Wolverine has come out of there since Terrance Taylor.
  • Detroit (MI) East English Village tight end Khalid Hill.  Hill committed to Michigan back in February.
  • Detroit (MI) Cass Tech running back/linebacker Gary Hosey.  Hosey is a 6’0″, 230 lb. back from the class of 2014.  He has zero offers at this point, but Michigan has discussed recruiting him at running back; I don’t think he has the speed to be an elite prospect. (Highlights.)
  • Trotwood (OH) Trotwood-Madison linebacker Mike McCray II.  McCray is already committed to Michigan.
  • Macomb (MI) Lutheran North kicker J.J. McGrath.  McGrath has zero offers at this point, but offers usually come later for kickers than other positions.
  • Warren (OH) Howland running back DeVeon Smith.  Smith is already committed to Michigan.
  • Middletown (OH) Middletown tight end Chance Sorrell.  Sorrell is a 6’6″, 225-pounder from the class of 2014 without any offers so far.  Michigan has offered three other tight ends in the class, but Nic Weisher seems to be the only viable option of those three.
  • Crete (IL) Crete-Monee wide receiver LaQuon Treadwell.  Treadwell is Michigan’s top target at wide receiver for the class of 2013; likewise, Michigan has reportedly been at the top of his list for most or all of his recruitment.  He has visited Ann Arbor several times before, but he also has serious interest in other schools, including pass-happy Oklahoma State. EDIT: Treadwell is no longer visiting Michigan this weekend.  (Highlights.)
  • Detroit (MI) Cass Tech wide receiver/cornerback Damon Webb, a 2014 prospect, will be visiting.  Webb has been offered by Michigan and his leaders are the Wolverines, LSU, Michigan State, and Ohio State.  Webb transferred to Cass Tech prior to this season, so his bond with other Michigan-bound players from that school (David Dawson, Jourdan Lewis, Royce Jenkins-Stone, Terry Richardson, etc.) may not be as strong. (Highlights.)
  • Detroit (MI) Cass Tech linebacker William White.  White is a 6’1″, 220 lb. linebacker from the class of 2014.  He has zero offers at this point, but some will likely be coming down the road. (Highlights.)
  • Harper Woods (MI) Chandler Park wide receiver Csont’e York.  York is already committed to Michigan.

Weekend Visitors: March 16-18, 2012

Warren (OH) Howland running back Deveon Smith

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech OT David Dawson: Dawson committed to Michigan back in February.

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech LB Deon Drake: Drake, a 2014 prospect, is 6’1″ and 215 lbs.  He currently has no offers, partly because he was overshadowed by some of the other talent at Cass Tech last season. (Highlights here.)

Richmond (VA) Hermitage RB Derrick Green: Green is a 6’1″, 215 lb. running back with reported 4.37 speed, but you don’t really see that track speed translating to the football field.  He is a big power runner, though, and would fit in well with Michigan’s offense because he gets downhill and can punish tacklers.  He has offers from Ohio State, Oklahoma, and USC, along with lots of others. (Highlights here.)

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech S Delano Hill: Cass Tech is a pipeline to Michigan . . . at least for guys that Michigan offers.  However, Hill has not been offered by the Wolverines, and an offer does not seem to be on the horizon.  The Wolverines seem to be set at safety unless a big-time player (like Su’a Cravens) wants to commit. (Highlights here.)

Detroit (MI) Crockett TE Khalid Hill: Hill committed to Michigan back in February.

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech LB Gary Hosey: Hosey, a 2014 prospect, transferred to Cass Tech from Farmington Hills (MI) Harrison.  At 6’0″ and 230 lbs., he seems like a middle linebacker prospect for Michigan, if anything.

Pittsburgh (PA) Seton La Salle TE Scott Orndoff: Orndoff had been committed to Wisconsin since August, but he decommitted from the Badgers at the end of February, partly because offensive coordinator Paul Chryst left for the Pitt Panthers.  He also has offers from Michigan State and West Virginia, among others.  Despite having two tight ends already committed, it sounds like the coaches would be open to taking a commitment from Orndoff, a 245-pounder who stands 6’4″. (Highlights here.)

Baltimore (MD) Gilman DT Henry Poggi: Poggi is the son of Biff Poggi, the head coach at Gilman.  Henry has brothers playing football at Iowa and Duke.  The youngest of the bunch is a 6’3″, 255 lb. defensive tackle who is also being looked at by some schools as a tight end.  Alabama, Maryland, and Ohio State, among others, have also offered Henry.

Warren (OH) Howland RB Deveon Smith:
Smith is a 5’11”, 200 lb. inside runner who lacks true breakaway speed.  He is a very tough runner, though, and would be a solid addition the class.  However, there is some information circulating that Michigan has backed off on his recruitment a little bit, hoping that they’ll be able to reel in Ty Isaac before Smith makes a commitment.  Opinions vary wildly on whether Michigan should try to grab Smith this weekend, whether they should back off and wait on Isaac, or whether they should try to get both.  The general feeling is that Michigan only wants one more running back to go along with Novi (MI) Catholic Central’s Wyatt Shallman, not two. (Highlights here.)

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech WR Damon Webb: There’s not a whole lot of information out there about Webb, but he’s a 2014 prospect who transferred to Cass Tech from U of D Jesuit.  Webb is now a 5’11”, 170 lb. wideout. (Freshman highlights here.)

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech LB William White: White is a 6’1″, 220 lb. inside linebacker.  His father played safety for the Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs, and Atlanta Falcons from 1988-1998, making 672 career tackles and 20 career picks.
