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.

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Houston (TX) DeKaney cornerback Marcus Banks was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 170 lb. prospect with offers from LSU, Oklahoma, Texas, and Texas A&M. He had 28 tackles and 8 tackles for loss as a junior in 2017, but he is expected to commit to the in-state Longhorns.

Dallas (TX) Bishop Dunne wide receiver/cornerback Marquez Beason was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’11”, 173 lb. prospect with offers from LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Texas, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #6 athlete, and #84 overall. A standout on both sides of the ball, he wants to play defensive in college, and that appears to be where Michigan wants him, too.

Lawrenceville (GA) Archer cornerback Andrew Booth, Jr. was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #5 cornerback, and #88 overall. Michigan is sending out a bunch of offers to cornerbacks in the 2019 class, which makes sense because Lavert Hill and David Long will have finished their junior years, and they could be candidates to leave early for the NFL. Booth made 46 tackles and 7 interceptions as a sophomore in 2016.

Hit the jump for a bunch of other new offers that have gone out over the past several weeks.
