2022 Season Countdown: #95 Micah Pollard

Name: Micah Pollard
200 lbs.
High school:
Jacksonville (FL) Bartram Trail
Jersey number:
Last year:
Pollard was a senior in high school (LINK).
TTB Rating:

Pollard committed to Michigan in July of last year. Unrelated to cornerback signee Myles Pollard, Micah is, however, related to a much more famous Pollard: former Indianapolis Colts tight end Marcus Pollard. Marcus is Micah’s father and played with Jim Harbaugh for the Colts back in ye olden days. Micah fielded offers from Auburn, Ole Miss, Penn State, and South Carolina, among others, before committed to the Wolverines. He ended up ranked as a 3-star, the #71 linebacker, and #719 overall.

I think Pollard is a high-floor, low-ceiling prospect. He has the pedigree, technique, and athleticism to be a decent player, but he lacks that quick-twitch ability to be a high-level performer, in my opinion. The biggest thing lacking as a freshman will be a shortage of bulk and strength. He’s listed at 200 pounds and he does not have the ability to overpower linemen as a senior in high school. That will need to come in the weight room and at the dinner table. For now I think Pollard is likely to redshirt with an outside chance at playing on some special teams.

Prediction: Redshirt

Jacksonville (FL) Bartram Trail LB Micah Pollard


Jay Toia – DT – USC: Toia is a 6’2″, 315 lb. player who signed with USC in the class of 2021. However, he entered the transfer portal and is interested in Michigan.

Michigan offered him out of high school and pursued hard, but Toia has lamented that he couldn’t take official visits and see more schools due to COVID.


Dillon Bell – WR – Houston (TX) Kinkaid: Bell is a 6’2″, 205 lb. prospect with offers from Baylor, Michigan, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #69 wide receiver, and #545 overall. He stopped by Michigan for an unofficial visit and is supposed to return later in June for an official visit. The Wolverines recently offered his younger brother Micah Bell, a 2023 cornerback.

Jeremiah Caldwell – CB – Belleville (MI) Belleville: Caldwell is a 6’3″, 170 lb. prospect who has been committed to Kentucky since January 2021. He is a 3-star, the #31 athlete, and #385 overall. Michigan offered in mid-April, and the defensive backs coach he committed to at Kentucky is now at Michigan (Steve Clinkscale). This is an unofficial visit on June 2.

Dakari Frazier – DE – Pickerington (OH) Central: Frazier is a 6’4″, 245 lb. prospect with offers from a handful of MAC programs. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star and the #174 defensive lineman in the country. He’s a teammate of 2023 safety/linebacker Sonny Styles (see below).

Here’s a look at the current recruiting situation, with a special bonus update on the 2021 class.


Ike Iwunnah – DT – Garland (TX) Lakeview Centennial: Iwunnah is a 6’4″, 285 lb. prospect who committed to Colorado last week. He did not sign during the early signing period, so Michigan could still sway him in the next week or so before he is likely to sign. He’s a 3-star, the #66 DT, and #1187 overall.


Alfonzo Allen – CB – Hallandale (FL) Hallandale: Allen is a 6’1″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, and LSU, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #12 safety, and #170 overall.

Jordan Allen – CB – Lafayette (LA) Christian: Allen is a 5’11”, 182-pounder with offers from Arkansas, Miami, and Mississippi State, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #54 cornerback, and #550 overall.
