Oakland (CA) Freedom running back Giles Jackson was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’8″, 175 lb. prospect with offers from Oregon, UCLA, and USC, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #8 all-purpose back, and #727 overall. He claims a 4.53 forty, a 4.01 shuttle, a 35″ vertical, and a 265 lb. bench press. He took an official visit to Michigan this past weekend, just a couple days after being offered by the Wolverines.

Dunlap (IL) Dunlap tight end Josiah Miamen was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 225-pounder with offers from Illinois, Iowa, Northwestern, Notre Dame, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #64 weakside end, and #912 overall, though the Wolverines are looking at him as a tight end. He earned his offer at Michigan’s camp a week ago, and then he took an unofficial visit this past weekend. Steve Wiltfong subsequently put in a crystal ball pick for Michigan.

Hit the jump for several more updates from the past week.

Macedonia (OH) Nordonia cornerback Nyles Beverly was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’11”, 180 lb. prospect with offers from a bunch of MAC schools. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #116 cornerback, and #1275 overall. He runs a 4.53 forty.

Houston (TX) St. Pius X quarterback Grant Gunnell decommitted from Texas A&M. At 6’6″ and 212 lbs., he’s a 4-star, the #2 pro-style guy, and #53 overall. Oklahoma State is in sole possession of the lead when it comes to Crystal Ball picks with 40% of them right now. Michigan offered him last year, but he has not shown much interest in the Wolverines.

Reno (NV) Damonte Ranch quarterback Cade McNamara decommitted from Notre Dame. He’s a 6’1″, 187-pounder with offers from Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and USC, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #8 pro-style quarterback, and #269 overall. Over the past two seasons, he has thrown for over 7,000 yards, 90 touchdowns, and 19 interceptions.

Hit the jump for more bits and pieces on the 2019 class.

5-8-17 Recruiting Update: ABC, BBD

Lakeland (FL) Lakeland TE Keon Zipperer (image via Scout)


Olympia (FL) Olympia quarterback Joe Milton committed to Michigan (LINK).


Palm Beach (FL) Central cornerback Akeem Dent was offered by Michigan. Dent is a 6’1″, 170 lb. corner who decommitted from Miami in March. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #1 cornerback, and #6 overall, and has offers from Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, and LSU, among others. He transferred to Central from Pahokee, which is the alma mater of former Michigan players Martavious Odoms, Brandin Hawthorne, and Richard Ash. As a sophomore at Pahokee in 2016, he made 40 tackles and 3 interceptions, 2 of which he returned for touchdowns.

Acworth (GA) Kennesaw Mountain tight end Ryland Goede was offered by Michigan. Goede stands 6’7″, 235 lbs. and is a 247 Sports 4-star, the #4 tight end, and #66 overall. Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, and Notre Dame have also offered. He seems likely to eventually end up at Georgia.

Loganville (GA) Grayson linebacker Kevin Harris was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 210 lb. outside ‘backer with offers from Georgia and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #9 outside linebacker, and #109 overall. Harris is a little bit thin right now, and he might end up at either linebacker or defensive end, depending on how his body develops. He attends the same school where Michigan incoming freshman Kurt Taylor played during his senior year, a powerhouse program in the state of Georgia.

Fort Myers (FL) Dunbar defensive end Derick Hunter was offered by Michigan. Hunter is a 6’5″, 245 lb. strongside end with offers from Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, and Oregon, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #13 strongside end, and #166 overall. With two years of high school remaining, I think Hunter might grow into a 3-tech defensive tackle before all is said and done.

Hit the jump for a bunch more new offers.
