Saeed Blacknall – WR – New Jersey (Rutgers)
Orlando Brown, Jr. – OT – Georgia (Tennessee)
Mattrell McGraw – S – Louisiana
Darrion Owens – LB – Florida (Miami)
Jimmie Swain IV – LB – Kansas
Kyron Watson – LB – Illinois (Kansas)
Steven Parker – S – Oklahoma
Adarius Pickett – CB – California (UCLA)
Phoenix (AZ) Mountain Pointe wide receiver Jalen Brown
ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2014
Phoenix (AZ) Mountain Pointe wide receiver Jalen Brown was offered by Michigan. Brown is a 6’2″, 170 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Tennessee, among others. As a junior in 2012, he had 67 receptions for 1,235 yards and 18 touchdowns; on defense he had 26 tackles and 5 interceptions. He’s the #57 overall player to Rivals and the #126 overall player to 247 Sports. Mountain Pointe is also the home of 2014 offensive guard prospect Natrell Curtis, a big-time recruit, and former offensive line target Kenny Lacy, who signed with UCLA in February. He’s a very good route runner with good body control while the ball is in the air.
Hinsdale (IL) Central tight end Ian Bunting was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’7″, 215 lb. prospect who has been picking up offers at a fast pace recently, including ones from Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, and Wisconsin, among others. As a junior in 2012, he had 16 receptions for 412 yards and 4 touchdowns. Bunting visited Michigan for the Northwestern game last November.
Grand Rapids (MI) Christian wide receiver Drake Harris was offered by Michigan. Harris is a 6’4″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from all over the place, and he has been discussed ad nauseum on this site and others. One of the top couple prospect in the state and one of the top few wide receivers in the nation, his recruitment has been followed closely by many. He visited Michigan’s campus for three weeks in a row despite being “committed” to Michigan State, but that commitment was due largely to his prowess on the basketball court; he now plans to pursue a football career instead. He has plans to visit several schools, but Michigan should remain a school of interest throughout the process.
Jenks (OK) Jenks safety Steven Parker was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’2″, 185 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, and Texas A&M, among others. As a junior in 2012, he had 52 tackles, 1 sack, and 3 interceptions. He’s the #114 overall player to Rivals and #220 to 247 Sports.
ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2015 Many (LA) Many offensive tackle Garrett Thomas was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’6″, 295 lb. prospect whose lone current offer comes from Michigan. Thomas is a very powerful blocker, and he looks like a future right tackle or perhaps an offensive guard.
