2020

Jordan Morant – S – Oradell (NJ) Bergen Catholic: Morant is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Makari Paige – S – West Bloomfield (MI) West Bloomfield: Paige is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Dan Villari – QB – Massapequa (NY) Plainedge: Villari is a 6’4″, 215 lb. prospect with FBS offers from Buffalo, Kent State, and UMass. He was previously committed to Fordham, an FCS program. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #40 pro-style quarterback, and #1239 overall, but the other major sites have not ranked him. He took an official to UMass last weekend and will take this official to Michigan, which means this is not a “blueshirt” situation. Michigan has already offered him a grayshirt opportunity, which means that he would not be on the team and start his eligibility until 2021. From anecdotal evidence, the majority of “grayshirt” guys seem to end up with straight-up scholarships by the following fall due to guys transferring out, getting injured, etc. The most recent example in Michigan’s case is kicker Jake Moody, who was supposed to grayshirt until some people transferred out; Moody then ended up on scholarship for his freshman year in 2018 and played quite a bit.

2020

Reece Atteberry – C – Aurora (CO) Eaglecrest: Atteberry is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Elijah Gaines – S – Alexandria (VA) Episcopal: At one time Gaines had set up an official visit to Michigan for this game, but he committed to Penn State in the meantime.

Darion Green-Warren – CB – Harbor City (CA) Narbonne: Green-Warren is a 6’0″, 187-pounder with offers from Michigan, Nebraska, Penn State, and USC, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #13 cornerback, and #209 overall. His crystal ball is 88% in favor of USC and 0% for Michigan right now. UPDATE: Green-Warren is visiting in December.

Jaylen Harrell – DE – Tampa (FL) Berkeley Prep: Harrell is a 6’4″, 235 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, and Miami, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #14 weakside end, and #301 overall. This is an official visit.

Nikhai Hill-Green – LB – Baltimore (MD) St. Frances: Hill-Green is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Myles Hinton – OT – Norcross (GA) Greater Atlanta Christian: Hinton is a 6’6″, 308-pounder who is committed to Stanford. His brother Chris is a Michigan defensive tackle, and Myles has visited several times this year, largely to see his brother. There’s an outside chance that Michigan can flip him.

Kris Jenkins, Jr. – DE – Olney (MD) Good Counsel: Jenkins is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Jayson Jones – DT – Calera (AL) Calera: Jones is a 6’6″, 340 lb. prospect who has been committed to Alabama since June of 2018. He has long insisted that he would take a visit to Michigan, even though some have doubted whether it would happen or not. He’s a 4-star, the #18 defensive tackle, and #174 overall.
