|Detroit (MI) Cass Tech wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones
This event is a meet-and-greet for in-state 2017 prospects. It will take place at 3:30 p.m.
Carter Dunaway – TE – Bloomfield Hills (MI) Brother Rice: Dunaway committed to Michigan in April (LINK).
Ja’Raymond Hall – OT – Oak Park (MI) Oak Park: Hall is a 6’5″, 255 lb. prospect with offers from Miami-OH and Michigan. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #13 offensive tackle, and #82 overall. He is thought to be leaning toward the Wolverines.
K.J. Hamler – WR – Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary’s: Hamler is a 5’9″, 155 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, and several others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #45 wide receiver, and #279 overall. While he has the size to also play cornerback, he wants to play offense, although he would have to be a slot guy and maybe a kickoff returner. He is considered to be a Michigan State lean.
Hit the jump for a few more visitors.
Jaylen Kelly-Powell – S – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Kelly-Powell is a 6’0″, 183 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Minnesota, Northwestern, and Pitt, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #13 safety, and #187 overall. He claims a 4.49 forty. Named after former Michigan basketball player Jalen Rose, Kelly-Powell is considered a Michigan lean.
Corey Malone-Hatcher – DE – St. Joseph’s (MI) St. Joseph’s: Malone-Hatcher, the #193 overall player in the class, visited this past weekend because he can’t make it to campus on June 2.
Donovan Peoples-Jones – WR – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Peoples-Jones is a 6’2″, 183 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #3 wide receiver, and #12 overall. He is pretty quite on the recruiting scene despite picking up numerous big-time offers, but he does have a family connection to Michigan, since his father played for the Wolverines in the 1990s.
Joshua Ross – LB – Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary’s: Ross is a 6’1″, 210 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #3 inside linebacker, and #116 overall. A teammate of Hamler (see above), Ross is the younger brother of Michigan senior linebacker James Ross III; because of that reason, he is thought to be a Michigan lean.
Allen Stritzinger – RB – Warren (MI) De La Salle: Stritzinger is a 6’0″, 183 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati, Michigan, and a few MAC programs. As a sophomore in 2014, he ran the ball 244 times for 1,356 yards and 20 touchdowns, and he added 9 receptions for 238 yards and 1 touchdown. He attends the alma mater of junior quarterback Shane Morris and redshirt freshman Jared Wangler.
Ambry Thomas – CB – Detroit (MI) King: Thomas is a 5’11”, 165 lb. prospect with offers from LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, and Tennessee, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #11 cornerback, and #150 overall. He was considered to be a slight Michigan State lean, but several new programs have thrown their hats in the ring recently and he may be openly considering his options.
