Tyler Beach – OT – Port Washington (WI) Port Washington: Beach is a 6’8″, 270 lb. prospect with offers from Arkansas, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #40 offensive tackle, and #351 overall. It’s typically difficult to steal Wisconsin offensive linemen out of Wisconsin. However, the Badgers already have three offensive linemen committed in the 2017 class (OG Logan Bruss, OT Alex Fenton, and OG Kayden Lyles), so room is dwindling. Beach is the #1 prospect in the state of Wisconsin for this class. He will be at Michigan on Friday and Saturday.

Eno Benjamin – RB – Wylie (TX) East: Benjamin is a 5’10”, 204 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona, Baylor, Houston, Iowa, Michigan, and Oklahoma State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #14 running back, and #172 overall. He put up ridiculous numbers as a junior in 2015 with 366 carries for 2,652 yards and 41 touchdowns on the ground. Benjamin trains with former Michigan running back David Underwood and was longing for a Michigan offer, so he’s a player who could very well end up committing to Michigan. He is visiting Ann Arbor on Tuesday, March 8.

Recruiting Update: January 18, 2016

Olathe (KS) North safety Isaiah Simmons

Upper Marlboro (MD) Riverdale Baptist cornerback Sir Patrick Scott decommitted from Michigan (LINK).

Winter Garden (FL) West Orange wide receiver Eddie McDoom decommitted from Oregon. McDoom is a 5’11”, 170 lb. prospect who had committed to the Ducks in December, but also has offers from Clemson, Florida, Miami, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #67 wide receiver, and #405 overall. He recently caught a touchdown pass in the Under Armour All-American Game. Interestingly, McDoom was one of a couple wide receiver commits who took an Oregon spot that could have gone to Dylan Crawford, who committed to Michigan two weekends ago. McDoom says that when he made it clear to Oregon that he wanted to take other visits – mainly to Michigan – the Ducks pulled his offer. Michigan fans are familiar with that policy, since it sounds similar to Brady Hoke’s approach. Now McDoom is scheduled to come to Ann Arbor next weekend, and it’s unclear whether this situation will affect Crawford or not. If Michigan is able to secure a commitment from McDoom and keep Crawford, that may sew up the receiver position before Donald Stewart and Pie Young decide to commit.

Olathe (KS) North safety Isaiah Simmons was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’3″, 212 lb. prospect with offers from Clemson, Louisville, Missouri, and Nebraska, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #16 safety, and #326 overall. Simmons is a large safety who also plays some wide receiver. He reminds me a little bit of Michigan cornerback Jeremy Clark, although Simmons is thicker at this stage in his career than Clark was. He has visits scheduled to Nebraska and Louisville for the next two weekends, so Michigan would likely have to bump one of those schools out of the way unless he decides to make a mid-week trip. If the name of Simmons’s school sounds familiar, Michigan recruited Jimmie Swain IV (Oregon) from there in the 2014 class.

Port Washington (WI) Port Washington offensive tackle Tyler Beach was offered by Michigan. Beach is a 6’8″, 270 lb. prospect with offers from Bowling Green, Buffalo, Eastern Michigan, and Northern Illinois. He has not been offered by Wisconsin yet, but it’s often tough to pull players out of Wisconsin if the Badgers want them (Ben Bredeson is an exception).

Hit the jump for some more 2017 offers, a 2018 offer, some commitments elsewhere, and some random recruiting bits.
