2018 Recruiting Update: The Dump

Leesburg (GA) Lee County LB Otis Reese

A couple days ago, I was hit with the annual $1,300 bill for web hosting from Flywheel. It reminded me how few site issues I’ve had since changing to Flywheel. Anyway, if you are capable and so inclined, please consider using the Paypal button on the sidebar to donate a few dollars to keep the site running. As always, you can also click on the Amazon links and buy something within 24 hours, and TTB will get a percentage. I appreciate all the support you can give. Thanks!


Rochester (MI) Adams cornerback Vincent Gray committed to Michigan (LINK).

Northville (MI) Northville kicker Jake Moody committed to Michigan as a grayshirt.


Washington (DC) St. John’s quarterback Kevin Doyle decommitted from Michigan (LINK).

Leesburg (GA) Lee County linebacker Otis Reese flipped from Michigan to Georgia. He’s a 4-star, the #5 outside linebacker, and #87 overall. Michigan’s coaching staff found out that he was flipping when he announced on the morning of National Signing Day, which is a . . . uhhh . . . less than ideal behavior from someone who has been committed to you for 1.5 years. Michigan’s coaches took heat for yanking offers late in the process previously (see: Erik Swenson), but at least those players had a chance to make other plans. If you wait until the last day to decide, somebody’s getting screwed.

Hit the jump for all the guys who committed elsewhere, along with some random bits.

4-10-17 Recruiting Update: Spiderman Football

Tyler Shough

Atlanta (GA) Westlake cornerback Myles “Spider” Sims committed to Michigan (LINK), and I couldn’t help thinking of this:


Orlando (FL) Dr. Phillips offensive tackle John Campbell was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’5″, 284 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Miami, and a bunch of others. He’s a 3-star, the #28 offensive tackle, and #419 overall. Michigan has recruited Dr. Phillips a fair amount over the years – including Demetrius Hart, Ricardo Miller, and Robert Porcher IV – but without much success.

Chandler (AZ) Hamilton quarterback Tyler Shough was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’4″, 187 lb. prospect with offers from Indiana, Missouri, and South Carolina, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #20 pro-style quarterback, and #551 overall. This may be in response to Las Vegas (NV) Bishop Gorman quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson rumored to be leaning toward UCLA, but Shough’s less impressive offer list may lead him toward Ann Arbor, though he has yet to even visit. As a junior in 2016, Shough was 142/230 (61%) for 2,089 yards, 27 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions.

Hit the jump for more 2018 and 2019 offers, plus several more bits and pieces.
