Recruiting Update: February 15, 2016

Phillip Paea 689x

Covington (GA) Newton wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman decommitted from Michigan (LINK).

Kennedale (TX) Kennedale linebacker Baron Browning decommitted from Baylor. He’s a 6’4″, 230 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State, Texas, Texas A&M, and USC, among others. Michigan offered him a few weeks ago, and his brother Barry played cornerback for Jim Harbaugh at Stanford. Baron is a 247 Composite 5-star, the #2 outside linebacker, and #26 overall. I haven’t sat down and made one yet, but Browning would be at the top or near the top of my Most Wanted list.

Berrien Springs (MI) Berrien Springs offensive guard Phillip Paea was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 280 lb. prospect with offers from BYU, Central Michigan, Michigan State, and Oregon. Currently unranked, Paea is a powerful offensive guard with good feet. He also plays some defensive end and defensive tackle, although he’s very raw and lacks instincts. I think he is a better prospect on offense.

Hit the jump for a new 2019 offer and some other bits.

Jeremiah Holloman, Ex-Wolverine

Jeremiah Holloman 681x
Covington (GA) Newton wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman decommitted from Michigan on Friday. He originally committed to the Wolverines in December (LINK).¬†Holloman is a 247 Composite 3-star, the #117 wide receiver, and #822 overall. I liked him as a big outside receiver at 6’3″, 195 lbs.

National Signing Day is almost a year away, so the Wolverines have plenty of time to recover. What’s interesting is that Michigan has a commitment from teammate Kurt Taylor, a 2017 running back, and offered another teammate, linebacker Jaquan Henderson, who is committed to UCLA. There was a time when a lot of people thought Henderson would flip to Michigan in time, but this development potentially throws a bit of a hurdle in the way.

After suffering – and encouraging – a dozen decommitments in the 2016 class, this is the first rescinded pledge of 2017. This is the new way of the world. Michigan had 41 different players committed at different times last year. We’ll see if Michigan can top that number in the next recruiting cycle.
