TRANSFERS

Casey Hughes – CB/S – Utah: Hughes is a 6’0″, 185 lb. cornerback/safety who is a grad transfer from Utah, so he will be eligible to play immediately. He made 35 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 1 pass breakup, and 2 forced fumbles as a starting cornerback in 2017.

2018

Ronnie Bell – WR – Kansas City (MO) Park Hill: Bell is committed to Michigan (LINK). This is his official visit.

Vincent Gray – CB – Rochester (MI) Adams: Gray is a 6’2″, 180 lb. prospect who was committed to Missouri from July 2017 until recently. He’s a 3-star, the #60 cornerback, and #681 overall.

Olaijah Griffin – CB – Mission Viejo (CA) Mission Viejo: Griffin is a 6’0″, 170 lb. cornerback who was committed to UCLA until recently. He’s a 4-star, the #4 cornerback, and #31 overall, and he’s an Under Armour All-American. He has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, and USC, among others. He took a visit to Tennessee and named them his leader after the visit, so that’s who Michigan is chasing right now. He’s a teammate of offensive tackle Jarrett Patterson, whom Michigan is also recruiting. Griffin said he would visit either Auburn or Michigan this weekend, and he will visit the other team next weekend. UPDATE: Griffin is playing in the Polynesian Bowl this weekend and will presumably not take the official visit until next weekend. His official to Auburn is scheduled for the first weekend in February.

Ryan Hayes – TE/OT – Traverse City (MI) West: Hayes signed with Michigan in December (LINK). This is his official visit.

He’s a 247 Sports 2-star, the #314 wide receiver, and #2129 overall. Terrell is a classmate of Otis Reese (see above). He claims a 4.39 forty and has very good football speed. I’m surprised he doesn’t have some bigger offers.
