I know it’s a little bit late in the game, but back in the spring, I didn’t have time to review all the senior film for Michigan’s 2019 signees and give them updated TTB Ratings. I did that during the 2019 Season Countdown, so here are the final TTB Ratings for the class of 2019.

S Daxton Hill: 100
He’s the best safety in the class, though it’s an unimpressive safety class overall.

RB Zach Charbonnet: 83 90
As long as he can get/stay healthy, Charbonnet has the potential to be a high draft pick in the future.

DT Chris Hinton, Jr.: 90
He should be an early contributor with high long-term upside.

Nightly Roundup: August 5, 2019

Quintel Kent

Michigan freshman wide receiver Quintel Kent is sitting out this season due to some undisclosed medical issues. He was a 3-star, the #116 wide receiver, and #958 overall. I had him at #65 in the countdown (LINK). All of that, of course, is less important than his health.

The Detroit News profiles former Michigan wide receiver Ron Bellamy, who is now the head coach at West Bloomfield (LINK).

2019 Season Countdown: #65 Quintel Kent

Name: Quintel Kent
172 lbs.
High school:
Lakewood (OH) St. Edward
Wide receiver
Jersey number:
Last year:
Kent was a senior in high school (LINK). He caught 59 passes for 924 yards and 12 touchdowns, along with returning 2 kickoffs for touchdowns.
TTB Rating:

Kent committed to Michigan in August of 2018 as the Wolverines fended off several MAC programs for his services. He had a solid senior season and did seem to make some improvements in his strength and speed from his junior year. I originally gave him a TTB Rating of 49, which I have since upgraded to the 59 above. His TTB Rating is less indicative of his talent than it is simply the talent surrounding him. Michigan has been bringing in a lot of good receivers over the past few years.

So how does a guy with a 59 TTB Rating get ranked at #65 as a true freshman? It’s pretty simple. There aren’t a ton of experienced bodies at wide receiver, and that number has even dropped by one (Oliver Martin) since I put together the countdown list. Kent could end up with a Grant Perry-like career, where he plays a good bit as a freshman but just kind of consistently hangs out as a “contributor” for four years.

Prediction: Backup wide receiver

Jordan Castleberry – RB – Lakewood (OH) St. Edward: Castleberry is a 5’7″, 190 lb. prospect. He committed to Michigan as a preferred walk-on during the visit.

Danielson Ike – OT – Kansas City (MO) Rockhurst: Ike is a 6’6″, 300 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Michigan, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #44 offensive tackle, and #589 overall. Nobody has a good line on where Ike will end up, so Michigan has as good of a shot as any school. This is his official visit. UPDATE: Ike is no longer visiting.

Cornelius Johnson – WR – Greenwich (CT) Brunswick: Johnson is a 6’3″, 195-pounder with offers from Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, and Stanford, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #39 wide receiver, and #256 overall. The most recent crystal ball pick comes for Michigan from Notre Dame writer Tom Loy, but that’s the only pro-Michigan pick out of seven. This is his official visit, and he plans to announce his decision on December 19.

Jaylen Ellis – WR – Round Rock (TX) Cedar Ridge: Ellis is a 6’0″, 170 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Michigan, Ohio State, and Oregon, among others; he has been committed to Baylor since June of 2017, but he seems unlikely to stick with the Golden Bears. This is his official visit.
