2017 Recruiting Update: July 11, 2016

Kai-Leon Herbert 144


Plantation (FL) American Heritage offensive tackle Kai-Leon Herbert committed to Michigan (LINK).


Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy defensive end Robert Beal committed to Georgia. Beal was a one-time Notre Dame commit who decommitted several months ago. He’s one of several top prospects and Michigan targets to have transferred to IMG Academy for his senior season, though the Wolverines were out of the picture for him.

Murrieta (CA) Valley wide receiver Maurice Bell committed to Colorado. Not to be confused with New Jersey wide receiver Markquese Bell, Maurice talked about being strongly interested in the Wolverines, but nothing ever came close to happening between the two parties.

Houston (TX) Langham Creek running back Toneil Carter committed to Georgia. The #5 running back and #107 player in the country was one of my biggest wants in the 2017 class, but Michigan was never really involved.

Hit the jump for several more guys who made commitments this week, plus some random bits on The Opening and other news items.

Recruiting Update: October 1, 2015

Arlington Heights (IL) St. Viator tight end Cole Kmet


Suwanee (GA) Collins Hill defensive end Tomon Fox, a North Carolina commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 230 lb. prospect who also has offers from Auburn, Miami, Notre Dame, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #30 weakside end, and #446 overall. Fox committed to UNC in June, but he is expected to give Michigan a look and potentially visit. The weakside end (a.k.a. Buck linebacker) position is somewhat shallow at Michigan, and with no proven players at the position, Michigan is looking to add someone in the 2016 class to go with Camden (NJ) Camden’s Ron Johnson, Jr.

Hit the jump for some new 2017 and 2018 offers, plus some random bits.
