St. Louis (MO) Christian Brothers wide receiver Kamryn Babb was offered by Michigan. Babb is a 6’1″, 189-pounder with offers from Auburn, LSU, Miami, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #13 wide receiver, and #86 overall. He has already been selected for the 2018 U.S. Army All-American Bowl. As a sophomore in 2015, he caught 39 passes for 832 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Mt. Holly (NJ) Rancocas Valley running back Iverson Clement was offered by Michigan. He’s 6’0″, 190 lbs. and a 4-star, the #22 athlete, and #283 overall. He claims a 4.49 forty, a 38″ vertical, and an 11.2 time in the 100 meters. As a junior in 2016, he ran 194 times for 1,430 yards (7.4 YPC) and 19 touchdowns. Immediately after the offer, Clement put Michigan in his top six, along with Florida, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, and Tennessee.

Brooklyn (NY) Erasmus Hall wide receiver Aron Cruickshank was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’10”, 165-pounder with offers from Ohio State and Syracuse. Cruickshank is very slight and plays a lot of quarterback for his high school team, but his future is at receiver or maybe cornerback. Erasmus Hall is the school that produced Curtis Samuel.

Visitors: Michigan vs. Indiana

Cam Akers – RB – Clinton (MS) Clinton: The 5’11”, 213 lb. prospect has offers from Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 5-star, the #2 running back, and #5 overall. The U.S. Army All-American was previously committed to Alabama, but now Ohio State has a slight lead with 30% of the Crystal Ball picks. Michigan would have a pretty solid class with the players who are already committed at running back, but Akers and Najee Harris are too good to pass up if it’s possible to get them. This is his official visit. UPDATE: Akers is no longer visiting.

Tory Carter – FB – Leesburg (GA) Lee County: Carter is a 6’2″, 255 lb. prospect who is committed to LSU. He’s a 3-star, the #1 fullback, and #1186 overall. He’s a teammate of 2017 DT Aubrey Solomon (a former Michigan commit) and 2018 safety Otis Reese (a current Michigan commit). Fullback/linebacker Chase Lasater decommitted from Michigan and fullback/linebacker Ben Mason might start off on defense, so Carter is perhaps Michigan’s best shot at a fullback in this class. This is his official visit.

Noah Harvey – LB – Hartland (WI) Arrowhead: Harvey is a 6’3″, 210 lb. prospect with an offer from Buffalo. He’s a former teammate of Michigan freshman offensive lineman Ben Bredeson.

Brad Hawkins, Jr. – WR – Camden (NJ) Suffield Academy: Hawkins is a 6’2″, 195 lb. prospect who signed a National Letter of Intent to Michigan in February. However, academic issues prevented him from enrolling at Michigan, so he is attending prep school at Suffield Academy, where he played football this fall. According to recent reports, he and Michigan plan for him to enroll at Michigan, so he is essentially a 2017 commit.
