Nico Collins – WR – Pinson (AL) Clay-Chalkville: Collins is a 6’5″, 195 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, and Georgia, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #11 wide receiver, and #79 overall. He was supposed to visit Ann Arbor for the spring game but ended up visiting Georgia instead. As a junior in 2015, he caught 60 balls for 1,103 yards and 16 TDs. All 11 of his 247 Sports Crystal Ball picks are in favor of the Crimson Tide.

Alex Forsyth – OG – West Linn (OR) West Linn: Forsyth is a 6’5″, 280 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Michigan, and Oregon, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #65 offensive tackle, and #584 overall. It’s difficult to pull Oregon players out of Oregon who have Oregon offers, and that seems like it will be the case with Forsyth, too. He has three Crystal Ball predictions, all for the Ducks. He’ll be in town on Wednesday, May 4.

Deron Irving-Bey – DE – Flint (MI) Southwestern: Irving-Bey is a 6’5″, 271 lb. prospect with offers from Indiana, Iowa State, Michigan, and Michigan State, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #13 strongside end, and #287 overall. He picked up the offer from the Wolverines toward the end of April. Like Forsyth, Irving-Bey has three Crystal Ball predictions for a green team, but this one is the Spartans. He will be in Ann Arbor on Tuesday, May 3. UPDATE: Irving-Bey did not visit this week and will try to make it to campus in June.

Recruiting Update: October 14, 2015

Ten-year veteran NFL safety, or high school senior Kareem Walker?


Ann Arbor (MI) Skyline linebacker Daelin Hayes decommitted from USC. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #9 outside linebacker, and #105 overall.He recently took a visit to Notre Dame, has set one up for Ohio State, and is also looking at Oklahoma, Ole Miss, and Texas. Michigan does not appear to be on the list, and I’m not sure they should be. Hayes – the cousin of former Michigan running back Justice Hayes – went to Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary’s as a youngster, transferred to California for his junior year, and then returned to the state of Michigan for his senior season. In the meantime, he has suffered multiple season-ending injuries and played only a handful of total games. At 6’3″, 254 lbs., recruiting analysts rave about his athleticism when he’s healthy, but he might just be one of those guys who can never stay healthy. He also has some people trying to steer him away from staying within the state.

Torrance (CA) North linebacker¬†Mique Juarez¬†also decommitted from USC. He’s a 6’2″, 222 lb. prospect who has seen a number of Crystal Ball predictions go in favor of UCLA over the past couple months. He’s a 247 Composite 5-star, the #2 outside linebacker, and #17 overall. The U.S. Army All-American said before he decommitted from the Trojans that he wanted to take an official visit to Michigan, so the Wolverines may be able to get in the race. However, the Bruins are having a pretty solid season (4-1 so far), and Juarez seems like a guy who wants to stay pretty close to home.

Hit the jump for some 2017 and 2018 offers, some guys who went off the board, and some random bits.
