Zach Bradshaw – WR – Damascus (MD) Damascus: Bradshaw is a 6’3″, 205 lb. wideout with 4.56 speed. He has an offer from Michigan, along with Maryland, South Carolina, West Virginia, and several others. He had 28 receptions for 395 yards and 6 touchdowns last season, plus 250 rushing yards for 2 touchdowns, and 2 punt return touchdowns. (Highlights here.)
Gareon Conley – CB – Massillon (OH) Washington: Conley is a 6’1″, 170 lb. cornerback with an offer from Michigan, plus from the likes of Northwestern, Toledo, and West Virginia. He had 26 tackles and 4 picks as a junior in 2011. There is a good chance that Conley will be committing to Michigan on this weekend’s visit.
David Dawson – OT – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Dawson is a 6’4″, 305 lb. offensive lineman who committed to Michigan in mid-February. Despite being projected by most as an offensive guard, he says that Michigan’s coaches want to start him out at right tackle and see how things go. (Commitment post here.)
Jaleel Hytchye – CB – Cincinnati (OH) LaSalle: Hytchye is a 5’11”, 170 lb. cornerback who does not yet hold an offer from Michigan. He does, however, have offers from Kentucky, Kent State, and Western Kentucky. Last season Hytchye made 30 tackles, 14 pass breakups, and 4 interceptions. Because Michigan is generally looking for corners who are 6’0″ or taller, chances are slim that he will get an offer at this point. (Highlights here.)
Ty Isaac – RB – Joliet (IL) Catholic: Isaac is a 6’3″, 215 lb. runner with offers from all over the country, including Michigan. He is generally thought to be #1 on Michigan’s running back board and early leaders seem to be Michigan and Notre Dame. He carried the ball 178 times for 2,114 yards and 45 touchdowns as a junior in 2011. (Highlights here.)
Shane Jones – LB – Cincinnati (OH) Moeller: Jones is a 6’1″, 220 lb. ‘backer from the same high school as 2012 wide receiver target Monty Madaris (Michigan State). He made 89 tackles, 9 tackles for loss, and 2 sacks as a junior in 2011. He looks like a weakside linebacker or possibly a MIKE. He holds an offer from Michigan, along with Michigan State, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Penn State, among others. (EDIT: Jones, like Anzalone below, also canceled his trip to Michigan due to the linebacker position being full.) (Highlights here.)
Colin McGovern – OT – New Lenox (IL) Lincoln-Way West: McGovern is a 6’7″, 280 lb. tackle with offers from Alabama, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Wisconsin, among others. He also had an offer Michigan, although the Wolverines are currently full at the offensive line positions unless something changes. (Highlights here.)
Shane Morris – QB – Warren (MI) De La Salle: Morris committed to Michigan in the summer of 2011. (Commitment post here.)
Dylan Roney – DE – Novi (MI) Catholic Central: Roney is a 6’2″, 215 lb. defensive end from the class of 2014. He has no scholarship offers at this point. Roney made 75 tackles, 8.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, and 1 fumble recovery as a sophomore in 2011. He is the teammate of incoming freshman defensive end Matt Godin and 2013 running back commit Wyatt Shallman. (Highlights here.)
NOTE: Wyomissing (PA) Wyomissing Area linebacker Alex Anzalone was originally scheduled to visit Michigan this weekend, too. However, he stated that Michigan told him they were full at his position, which could mean several things. Since Anzalone looks like a SAM to me, it might mean that recent commit Mike McCray took that spot. It could also mean that Michigan has received a silent commitment from another player. And another possibility is that the coaches are saving a spot for E.J. Levenberry.
