The other night, several 2016 prospects – and one 2017 player – were in town for Michigan’s basketball game against Michigan State. On Sunday for the Ohio State game, there will be more prospects on campus, including a couple of the top in-state prospects for 2017.

Bryce Brand – DT – Walled Lake (MI) Western: Brand, a 2017 prospect, is a 6’2″, 267 lb. prospect with offers from Air Force and Louisville. His older brother, Ryan, was a quarterback at U of D Jesuit and signed with Air Force in the 2015 class.

Rodney Hall – QB – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Hall, another 2017 prospect, is a 6’3″, 192 lb. prospect with no offers at this time. When senior quarterback Jayru Campbell – a one-time Michigan State commit – was suspended for the 2014 season, Hall stepped in as a sophomore. The lefty led Cass Tech to the state championship game.

Corey Malone-Hatcher – DE – St. Joseph (MI) St. Joseph: Malone-Hatcher is a 6’3″, 235 lb. prospect with offers from Iowa, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #4 weakside end, and #111 overall. Michigan’s staff under Brady Hoke offered him, so Jim Harbaugh and company may reaffirm the offer while he’s on campus.

John O’Korn – QB – University of Houston: O’Korn has been reported by some as being a done deal to transfer to Michigan, although nothing official has been announced. He started as a freshman at Houston (2,889 yards, 26 touchdowns, 8 interceptions) in 2013 and then took a step back last season. Now he’s looking to transfer somewhere, and Michigan seems a likely destination. If the transfer does become official, he will have to sit out the 2015 season and will have two remaining seasons of eligibility (2016-2017).

Joshua Ross – LB – Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary’s: Ross is a 6’1″, 210 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, and Oklahoma. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #2 inside linebacker, and #56 overall. He’s the younger brother of Michigan senior linebacker James Ross III, who will be long gone by the time Joshua enters college.

Taeshon Trotter – OT – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Trotter is a 6’6″, 275 lb. prospect with no offers at this time.

Tim Walton – LB – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Walton is a 6’1″, 225 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati and a handful of MAC schools. He’s currently unranked in the 247 Composite, and I ranked him the #25 player in the state (LINK) last week.

    Malone-Hatcher is #111 overall.

    Joshua Ross looks a lot like his brother on film ….. only bigger and a much bigger hitter. Harbaugh isn't going to have any problems with his "contact courage". Hopefully he'll flip, and than be able to add and more importantly keep the size and weight his brother so far hasn't.
