I was asked for a list of prospects who are planning to visit on the huge recruiting weekend of December 14. This is when most of the 2013 class is planning to take their official visits.
Marcus Ball – LB – Westerville (OH) South: Ball is a 6’3″, 205 lb. prospect who is committed to Wisconsin. He also holds offers from Arizona State, Cincinnati, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pitt, and West Virginia, among others. He has only been committed to Wisconsin since late November, so the bond with the rest of the Wisconsin class likely isn’t extremely strong. As a junior in 2011, he had 1,300 yards passing, 500 yards rushing, and 7 interceptions on defense. His brother Ray is an offensive tackle who was offered by Michigan in the 2011 class but now plays at Wisconsin. Michigan hadn’t offered Marcus prior to the visit, but they could while he’s in town. They are recruiting him for the SAM linebacker position. UPDATE: Ball claims to have been offered by Michigan. (Highlights.)
Kyle Bosch – OG – Wheaton (IL) St. Francis: Bosch committed to Michigan in February.
Jake Butt – TE – Pickerington (OH) North: Butt committed to Michigan in February.
