Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary’s linebacker Joshua Ross

The other night, several 2016 prospects – and one 2017 player – were in town for Michigan’s basketball game against Michigan State. On Sunday for the Ohio State game, there will be more prospects on campus, including a couple of the top in-state prospects for 2017.

Bryce Brand – DT – Walled Lake (MI) Western: Brand, a 2017 prospect, is a 6’2″, 267 lb. prospect with offers from Air Force and Louisville. His older brother, Ryan, was a quarterback at U of D Jesuit and signed with Air Force in the 2015 class.

Rodney Hall – QB – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Hall, another 2017 prospect, is a 6’3″, 192 lb. prospect with no offers at this time. When senior quarterback Jayru Campbell – a one-time Michigan State commit – was suspended for the 2014 season, Hall stepped in as a sophomore. The lefty led Cass Tech to the state championship game.

Corey Malone-Hatcher – DE – St. Joseph (MI) St. Joseph: Malone-Hatcher is a 6’3″, 235 lb. prospect with offers from Iowa, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #4 weakside end, and #111 overall. Michigan’s staff under Brady Hoke offered him, so Jim Harbaugh and company may reaffirm the offer while he’s on campus.

John O’Korn – QB – University of Houston: O’Korn has been reported by some as being a done deal to transfer to Michigan, although nothing official has been announced. He started as a freshman at Houston (2,889 yards, 26 touchdowns, 8 interceptions) in 2013 and then took a step back last season. Now he’s looking to transfer somewhere, and Michigan seems a likely destination. If the transfer does become official, he will have to sit out the 2015 season and will have two remaining seasons of eligibility (2016-2017).

Joshua Ross – LB – Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary’s: Ross is a 6’1″, 210 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, and Oklahoma. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #2 inside linebacker, and #56 overall. He’s the younger brother of Michigan senior linebacker James Ross III, who will be long gone by the time Joshua enters college.

Taeshon Trotter – OT – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Trotter is a 6’6″, 275 lb. prospect with no offers at this time.

Tim Walton – LB – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Walton is a 6’1″, 225 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati and a handful of MAC schools. He’s currently unranked in the 247 Composite, and I ranked him the #25 player in the state (LINK) last week.

Visitors: Michigan vs. Appalachian State

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech cornerback Lavert Hill

2015
Brian Cole – WR – Saginaw (MI) Heritage: Cole committed to Michigan in late July (LINK).

Wesley French – OG – St. Joseph (MI) St. Joseph: French is a 6’5″, 300 lb. prospect with offers from a handful of MAC schools.

Mike Weber – RB – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Weber committed to Michigan earlier this month (LINK).

Hit the jump for 2016 and 2017 prospects.


2016
Messiah DeWeaver – QB – Trotwood (OH) Trotwood-Madison: DeWeaver committed to Michigan this summer (LINK).


Matt Falcon – RB – Southfield (MI) Southfield: Falcon is a 6’1″, 215 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Wake Forest, and a few MAC schools. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #25 running back, #275 overall, and #10 in-state. He was a teammate of Michigan freshman defensive end Lawrence Marshall last year, but Falcon suffered a torn ACL and missed almost the entire season.

He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #22 cornerback, #230 overall, and #6 in-state. His brother Delano is a sophomore safety for the Wolverines; Delano would probably be starting at strong safety if not for a broken jaw that is keeping him out temporarily.

Michael Jordan – OT – Plymouth (MI) Plymouth: Jordan is a 6’7″, 278 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan and Ohio State. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #35 offensive tackle, #454 overall, and #15 in-state.

Michael Onwenu – DT – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Onwenu is a 6’2″, 310 lb. prospect with offers from Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, and others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #4 offensive guard, #190 overall, and #5 in-state. Michigan is recruiting him as a defensive tackle.


David Reese – LB – Farmington (MI) Farmington: Reese is a 6’1″, 235 lb. prospect with offers from a handful of MAC programs. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #16 inside linebacker, #503 overall, and #17 in-state.
