Just like last week, I’m publishing a “visitors list” of players who were supposed to visit this weekend. I realize they’re not visiting due to the coronavirus, but it still gives an indication about what players are prioritizing Michigan.
Kechaun Bennett – DE – Suffield (CT) Suffield Academy: Bennett is a 6’4″, 220-pounder with offers from Duke, Miami, Michigan, and Notre Dame, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #22 strongside end, and #320 overall. In case you don’t remember, Suffield Academy is where Brad Hawkins spent his prep year before ending up at Michigan.
Louis Hansen – TE – Needham (MA) St. Sebastian’s: Hansen is a 6’4″, 222 lb. prospect with offers from Boston College, Georgia, Iowa, and Michigan, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #8 tight end, and #187 overall. Thomas Fidone is reportedly Michigan’s top priority at the position, but Michigan wants to take two, and Hansen is high on the list.
Najee Story – DE – Solon (OH) Solon: Story is a 6’4″, 235-pounder with offers from Alabama, Michigan, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #17 strongside end, and #277 overall. The current crystal ball leader is, unsurprisingly, the home-state Buckeyes.
Reuben Fatheree II – OT – Richmond (TX) Foster: Fatheree is a 6’8″, 300 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Oregon, and Texas A&M, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #4 offensive tackle, and #25 overall. He claims a 5.36 forty and a 4.83 shuttle, both of which are solid numbers for a guy that size, even if he were entering the NFL Draft.
Agiye Hall – WR – Seffner (FL) Armwood: Hall is a 6’3″, 190 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and Florida State, among others. He has very good acceleration and will be a big-time prospect when the rankings come out, in my opinion.
Cody Jackson – WR – Richmond (TX) Foster: Jackson is a 6’0″, 169-pounder with offers from Baylor, Houston, LSU, Texas, and Texas Tech, among others. As a sophomore in 2018, he caught 57 passes for 1,053 yards and 12 touchdowns. He’s a teammate of Reuben Fatheree (see above).
Ga’Quincy McKinstry – CB – Pinson (AL) Valley: McKinstry is a 6’1″, 175-pounder with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and Georgia, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #2 cornerback, and #30 overall. He made 30 tackles and 5 picks as a sophomore, along with 37 catches for 480 yards and 9 touchdowns. Michigan is recruiting him for both offense and defense, while UAB has offered him for basketball, so he’s a very talented all-around athlete.
Payton Page – DT – Greensboro (NC) Dudley: Page is a 6’4″, 315 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina, among others. As a sophomore in 2018, he made 80 tackles, 26 tackles for loss, and 8 sacks.
Greg Penn III – LB – Hyattsville (MD) DeMatha: Penn is a 6’1″, 225-pounder with offers from Florida, LSU, Maryland, and Penn State, among others. DeMatha is a powerhouse program that pronounces numerous FBS prospects every year, including Maryland running back Anthony McFarland, Jr. and 2019 Alabama safety signee DeMarcco Hellams.
Jahquez Robinson – CB – Jacksonville (FL) Sandalwood: Robinson is a 6’1″, 174 lb. prospect who committed to Alabama a week ago; he also has offers from Florida State, LSU, and Oklahoma, and he has set up an official to Oklahoma in April, so he’s still open to other schools (which he should be since he’s still two years away from signing). He’s a 3-star, the #41 cornerback, and #562 overall.
Shedeur Sanders – QB – Cedar Hill (TX) Trinity: Sanders is a 6’1″, 180-pounder with offers from Florida, Florida State, Georgia, and a bunch of others. He’s the son of Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders, who of course went to Florida State.
Jaquez Smith – S – Atlanta (GA) Hapeville: Smith is a 6’1″, 190 lb. prospect with offers from Georgia and Georgia Tech, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #4 safety, and #58 overall. I think he has the potential to grow into an outside linebacker as his body develops.
Najee Story – DE – Solon (OH) Solon: Story is a 6’4″, 220-pounder with offers from Notre Dame, Ohio State, and West Virginia. His crystal ball already has six picks for the Buckeyes.
