2017 Recruiting Update: July 5, 2016

Plantation (FL) American Heritage offensive tackle Kai-Leon-Herbert


Dallas (TX) Woodrow Wilson cornerback Darrion Green committed to SMU. His Michigan offer was considered a big deal, and so is SMU’s, frankly: Green is partially deaf, so it’s quite an accomplishment to be recruited by FBS programs. His Michigan offer was probably not committable, however, and the Michigan fans who were concerned that such a low-ranked prospect (#179 CB, #1703 overall) could take up a spot in Michigan’s class can rest easy for now.

Oak Ridge (TN) Oak Ridge wide receiver Tee Higgins committed to Clemson. He’s a 5-star and the #3 wideout in the class, behind Donovan Peoples-Jones and Joseph Lewis.

Orlando (FL) Dr. Phillips defensive end Robert Porcher IV committed to Nebraska. He is, of course, the son of former Detroit Lions defensive end Robert Porcher. The third. In case you got confused.


Plantation (FL) American Heritage offensive tackle Kai-Leon Herbert will announce his college decision on July 6, which is tomorrow. He narrowed his list to Florida, Miami, and Michigan, but most believe it’s between the Gators and Wolverines. For what it’s worth, I put in my Crystal Ball for Michigan.

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech offensive guard Jordan Reid will announce his college decision on July 10 at The Opening in Oregon. His final five are Florida, Michigan, Michigan State, Pitt, and Tennessee.

Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy center Cesar Ruiz put Michigan in his top eight. He had named Michigan his leader at one point, and then named a top twelve with no favorites. So the list is getting whittled down.

Lexington (KY) Lafayette offensive tackle Jedrick Wills named Michigan to his top eight.

Here’s a list of Michigan commits and targets who will be participating in The Opening over this coming weekend (LINK).
