11. Dylan Senda – OG – Dearborn (MI) Divine Child
Height: 6’5″
Weight: 275 lbs.
Notable offers: Kentucky, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State
Commitment: Northwestern
247 Composite: 3-star, #27 IOL, #451 overall
Analysis: Senda was strongly considering Michigan and Michigan State, but apparently he felt like the culture, academics, and playing opportunity were better in Evanston. He’s a decent sized interior offensive lineman, but I think there might be limitations on his size and strength, and I have some questions about his lateral movement.

6. Brennan Parachek – TE – Dexter (MI) Dexter
Height: 6’6″
Weight: 235 lbs.
Notable offers: Indiana, Kentucky, Pitt
Commitment: Michigan State
247 Composite: 4-star, #18 TE, #337 overall
Analysis: Paracheck is a traditional in-line tight end with good size. He should easily be able to carry 250-260 pounds in college. Parachek does not have much burst or suddenness to his game, even against so-so high school talent, so I would not expect him to become a dynamic receiving threat. He seems to be a guy who might end up averaging 9 or 10 yards per catch while being used mostly as a blocker. I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if he were to put on even more weight and end up as an offensive lineman at the next level. He’s also a teammate of 2023 running back Cole Cabana (Michigan), who is #4 in the state.

Detroit (MI) King QB Dante Moore

If you read this site or are into Michigan recruiting, you probably know the names at the top of this in-state list. The ranking/order are according to the 247 Composite. I can tell you right now that I would rearrange this top five list, but until I complete my rundown of the top players in the state, I won’t really put them in order.

1. Dante Moore – QB – Detroit (MI) King
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 195 lbs.
Notable offers: LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State
Commitment: Uncommitted
247 Composite: 5-star, #3 QB, #6 overall
Analysis: Moore is a national prospect at the quarterback position and has been a widely known name for several years. He has very good anticipation and touch, along with having adequate arm strength and athleticism. He’s not a dynamic athlete with his feet, but he’s a good athlete who can move in the pocket and has really refined his footwork. He appears to be one of the most college-ready quarterbacks to come out of Michigan in a long time. Wherever he goes, he will probably be in the conversation to start by year two at the latest. Moore grew up an Ohio State fan, gets private coaching from former Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner, and has good relationships with the coaches at Notre Dame. So his future destination is up in the air right now in a hotly contested battle.

Grosse Pointe (MI) South CB Will Johnson (image via Detroit News)

If you read this site or are into Michigan recruiting, you probably know the names at the top of this in-state list. Michigan has been pursuing all of these players for a while, and chances are good that the Wolverines land at least a couple of them, if not more.

1. Will Johnson – CB – Grosse Pointe (MI) South
Height: 6’3″
Weight: 190 lbs.
Notable offers: Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, USC
Commitment: Uncommitted
247 Composite: 5-star, #4 CB, #8 overall
Analysis: Johnson is a cornerback who overwhelms fellow high schoolers with his size and strength. He plays corner, wide receiver, and wildcat quarterback for his high school team. He’s the son of former Michigan defensive back Deon Johnson, who played for the Wolverines in the early 1990s. Even so, he’s not guarantee to sign with Michigan. He also has interest in Ohio State and USC, and he and Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei cornerback Domani Jackson – who is also high on Michigan – say they’re a package deal.
