Bryce Austin – DT – Southfield (MI) Southfield: Austin is a 6’2″, 260-pounder with offers from Michigan State, Missouri, and Pitt, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #22 defensive tackle, and #315 overall.

Michael Carmody – OT – Mars (PA) Mars Area: Carmody is a 6’5″, 285 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Penn State, and Virginia Tech, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #25 offensive tackle, and #196 overall. All five crystal ball picks so far are for Penn State.

Cal Haladay – LB – Catawissa (PA) Southern Columbia: Haladay is a 6’0″, 197 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan and UMass.

A.J. Henning – WR – Frankfort (IL) Lincoln-Way East: Henning is a 5’10”, 175 lb. prospect with offers from LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #8 wide receiver, and #51 overall, and 247 Sports has him at #25 overall, which is 5-star territory. His crystal ball is 83% for Notre Dame and 17% for OSU, but Henning recently named Michigan to his top 10.

Jakob James – OT – Cincinnati (OH) Elder: James is a 6’5″, 275 lb. prospect with offers from Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan, Penn State, Tennessee, and others. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #68 offensive tackle, and #625 overall. UPDATE: James committed to Ohio State earlier this week, so I would not expect him to show up for his planned visit to Ann Arbor.

Theo Johnson – TE – Windsor (Ontario) Holy Names: Johnson is a 6’5″, 235-pounder with offers from Boston College, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Penn State, and others. He’s a 3-star, the #11 tight end, and #452 overall. Both crystal ball picks for him so far are for Penn State.

2020 Recruiting Update: December 10, 2018

Oak Park (MI) Oak Park WR/TE Maliq Carr (image via 247 Sports)

Now that it’s (basically) the off-season once again, I can catch up on the ridiculous number of developments that have taken place over the last couple months in recruiting. Last week I did an update on the 2021 class (LINK), and here’s the 2020 edition.

In the meantime, please consider supporting the blog by doing some of your shopping through TTB’s Amazon links like this one:


Nick Patterson – TE – San Antonio (TX) Christian: Patterson committed to Michigan (LINK).


Tim Baldwin, Jr. – RB – Ashburn (VA) Stone Bridge: Baldwin decommitted from Michigan (LINK).

Denver Warren – DT – Aurora (IL) West: Warren decommitted from Michigan (LINK).


Sam Adams II – RB – Sammamish (WA) Eastside Catholic: Adams is a 6’2″, 200-pounder who’s the son of former mammoth Texas A&M and NFL defensive tackle Sam Adams. Adams II has offers from Ohio State, Texas A&M, and Washington, and he’s a 3-star, the #28 running back, and #341 overall in the country.

Maliq Carr – TE – Oak Park (MI) Oak Park: Carr is a 6’6″, 215 lb. prospect with offers from Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #95 wide receiver, and #524 overall. While he’s listed as a wideout, Michigan is recruiting him to play the tight end position, which makes sense for a guy who’s already 6’6″, 215 as a junior. He claims a 4.72 forty. As a junior in 2018, he caught 21 passes for 815 yards and 9 touchdowns, meaning he was averaging almost 40 yards per catch.

Lejond Cavazos – CB – Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy: Cavazos, originally from Texas, decommitted from Ohio State in the wake of Urban Meyer “retiring” and Ryan Day being named the new head coach. He’s a 6’0″, 186-pounder with offers from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, and USC, along with many others. He’s a 4-star, the #16 cornerback, and #183 overall.

Hit the jump for several more new offers and some guys who went off the board.
