I saw the movie Deadpool recently, so now you can talk about spoilers over on the message board (LINK).


Visitors with an asterisk will be visiting Michigan for Wednesday’s basketball game against Northwestern.

2017
*Ja’Raymond Hall – OT – Oak Park (MI) Oak Park: Hall committed to Michigan in December (LINK).

*Jaylen Kelly-Powell – S – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Kelly-Powell is a 6’0″, 183 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #16 safety, and #249 overall. He had previously named Michigan his leader, although recent developments in his recruitment appear to see him slowing down his recruiting process a bit. He has visited Michigan multiple times already. He will be in town on Wednesday.

*Phillip Paea – OG – Berrien Springs (MI) Berrien Springs: Paea is a 6’4″, 280 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #25 defensive tackle, and #381 overall. Most of his offers have come within the past couple weeks, so he’s been under the radar until recently. He’s visiting on Wednesday.

*Donovan Peoples-Jones – WR – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Peoples-Jones is a 6’2″, 192 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, and USC, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 5-star, the #1 wide receiver, and #6 overall. He recently tweeted a bit of excitement about Michigan’s newest commit, 2017 quarterback Dylan McCaffrey.

Hit the jump for a half dozen more visitors.

*Jordan Reid – OG – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Reid is a 6’3″, 286 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Michigan, and Michigan State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #24 offensive guard, and #708 overall.

*Steven Spenner – LB – Berrien Springs (MI) Berrien Springs: Spenner is a 6’3″, 217 lb. prospect with offers from Central Michigan and Western Michigan. Spenner will be visiting with his teammate Paea.

*Ambry Thomas – CB – Detroit (MI) King: Thomas is a 5’11”, 168 lb. prospect with offers from LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #13 cornerback, and #119 overall. He came out with some negative thoughts about Michigan after the Erik Swenson situation in January, so it’s a good sign that he’s still considering the Wolverines. Thomas will also be visiting on Wednesday.

2018
*Kalon Gervin – CB – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Gervin is a 5’11”, 170 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, and Penn State, among others. He’s a teammate of Kelly-Powell, Peoples-Jones, and Reid (see above).

*Marquan McCall – OG – Oak Park (MI) Oak Park: McCall is a 6’3″, 280 lb. prospect with offers from Illinois, Michigan, Ole Miss, and Tennessee, among others. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #2 offensive guard, and #66 overall. He’s a teammate of Hall (see above).

Tyrece Woods – LB – Detroit (MI) King: Woods is a 6’2″, 200 lb. prospect with no offers at this time. He’s a teammate of Thomas (see above).

    Do you see Paea as an OL or DL player? Listed here as an OG but 247 ranks him as a DT. Any idea what Michigan is recruiting him for?

      I think he’s a better offensive line prospect. He’s listed as a DT on a couple sites, but he’s more polished on offense. I haven’t heard yet whether Michigan wants him for offense or defense.
