Recruiting Update: October 24, 2013

Belmont (NC) South Point linebacker Tanner Muse

I haven’t posted one of these updates in a while because, well, not a whole lot has been going on in the recruiting world. So here’s an update that covers the last month and a half.

Belmont (NC) South Point linebacker Tanner Muse was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 207 lb. prospect with offers from Clemson, Michigan, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Northwestern, and Virginia, among others. He looks like he could play either SAM or MIKE for the Wolverines if he commits down the road. He’s a very athletic kid who has plenty of room to fill out.

Philadelphia (PA) St. Joseph’s Prep cornerback John Reid was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’10”, 170 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona, Miami, Michigan State, Penn State, Rutgers, and West Virginia, among others. 247 Sports’ Composite ranking places him as a 4-star, the #9 cornerback, and the #93 player overall. Reid is the teammate of offensive tackle commit Jon Runyan, Jr.

Phoenix (AZ) Mountain Pointe wide receiver Jalen Brown committed to Oregon on October 7. Brown visited Michigan over the summer, but Michigan’s coaches kind of slow-played him and didn’t give him the red carpet treatment. He left Ann Arbor feeling like they had other guys ahead of him on their list, so there was never really a shot of him committing to the Wolverines. He was the Gatorade Player of the Year in Arizona during his junior season.

Tampa (FL) Jefferson linebacker Juwuan Brown committed to South Florida all the way back in July, but it slipped past me. It’s unclear whether he actually had an offer from Michigan at any time, but he wanted to stay close to home, anyway.

Arlington (TX) Martin defensive end Myles Garrett committed to Texas A&M on October 18. Garrett is slated to play in the Under Armour All-America game and is 247 Sports’ Composite ranking’s #16 player overall. He attends the alma mater of injured Michigan quarterback Russell Bellomy.

Fort Lauderdale (FL) American Heritage wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie committed to Notre Dame on October 19. Or he didn’t. There are mixed reports. Either way, he’s expected to commit to Notre Dame if he hasn’t already.

El Cerrito (CA) El Cerrito cornerback Adarius Pickett committed to UCLA on September 3. 247 Sports’ prognosticators picked him 100% for USC, but that didn’t pan out so well. He never showed much interest in his Michigan offer.

Jacksonville (FL) Raines cornerback Lamont Simmons committed to Rutgers. Simmons stayed off the radar and is the country’s #967 player overall, according to 247’s Composite ranking.

Englewood (NJ) Dwight Morrow wide receiver Juwann Winfree committed to Maryland on September 27. Winfree mentioned several times that he had high interest in Michigan, but a visit never transpired. On a side note, Dwight Morrow was an American ambassador to Mexico during the Coolidge administration. You’re welcome.

Recruiting Update: February 18, 2013

Arlington (TX) Martin defensive end Myles Garrett

Ellenwood (GA) Cedar Grove linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams has been offered by Michigan.  Allen-Williams is a 6’2″, 218 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, USC, and lots of others.  As a junior in 2012, he had 99 tackles, 22 tackles for loss, 16 sacks, 1 interception, 2 forced fumbles, and 2 fumble recoveries.

Arlington (TX) Martin defensive end Myles Garrett was offered by Michigan.  Garrett is a 6’4″, 240 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Arkansas, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, and Texas A&M, among others.  Early in the process, he’s the #36 overall player to Rivals and #81 overall to 247 Sports.  Garrett attends the alma mater of Michigan quarterback Russell Bellomy, 2012 defensive end target Devonte Fields (TCU), and 2013 running back target Kyle Hicks (TCU).

Lithonia (GA) Martin Luther King cornerback Wesley Green was offered by Michigan.  Green is a 5’11”, 168 lb. corner with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, and USC, among others.  As a sophomore in 2011, he had 30 tackles, 6 interceptions, and 1 fumble recovery.

Southfield (MI) Southfield defensive end Lawrence Marshall decommitted from Ohio State.  He committed on Sunday, then visited Michigan State and Michigan, and was de-committed by Wednesday night.  The 6’4″, 215 lb. defensive end has offers from all those schools and several others.  I reported just prior to his commitment that he was a Michigan lean, which I thought to be the case.  Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer supposedly told him that he may not have an offer from the Buckeyes if he left campus without committing, so it sounds like they really put on the full court press.

Here’s a list of 2014 and 2015 prospects who visited Michigan this past weekend.
