Michigan is putting together a junior day for the Michigan State basketball game on February 6. Here is the beginning of a list of players who are expected to attend, although this is a bare-bones list so far:

2016
Terius Wheatley – CB – Ann Arbor (MI) Pioneer: Wheatley is the son of Michigan running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley and the brother of Michigan tight end Tyrone Wheatley, Jr. As far as I know, he does not have any scholarship offers.

2017
Corey Malone-Hatcher – DE – St. Joseph (MI) St. Joseph: Hatcher is a 6’3″, 246 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #10 weakside end, and #186 overall. He has visited Michigan numerous times, and the Wolverines have 89% of his Crystal Ball picks so far. Malone-Hatcher suffered a lower leg injury this past season that caused him to miss a large chunk of his junior year.

Scott Nelson – S – Detroit (MI) U of D Jesuit: Nelson is a 6’2″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Boston College, Miami-OH, Michigan, and Northwestern. He’s a 247 Sports 3-star, the #45 safety, and #616 overall. The offer from Michigan came in recently, and he’s strongly considering the Wolverines at this point.

Joshua Ross – LB – Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary’s: Ross is a 6’1″, 210 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 4-star, the #5 inside linebacker, and #144 overall. Michigan has 100% of his Crystal Ball picks so far. He is the younger brother of James Ross III, who just completed his career as a linebacker at Michigan.

Antjuan Simmons – LB – Ann Arbor (MI) Pioneer:¬†Simmons is a 6’1″, 205 lb. prospect with offers from Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #23 outside linebacker, and #358 overall. He recently left Michigan off of his top list, probably in part because the Wolverines dragged their feet on offering him. It remains to be seen whether Michigan can get back in on his recruitment, but they should have a good chance, since he goes to school across the street from Michigan Stadium.

Allen Stritzinger – RB – Warren (MI) De La Salle: Stritzinger is a 6’0″, 180 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati, Michigan, and some MAC schools. He’s a 247 Composite 3-star, the #25 running back, and #338 overall. The Crystal Ball is 100% in favor of Michigan right now, and he has declared Michigan his leader.

Isaiah Wilson – OT – Brooklyn (NY) Poly: Wilson is a 6’7″, 322 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, and Stanford, among others. He’s a 247 Composite 5-star, the #5 offensive tackle, and #15 overall. (Really? There are five tackles in the top 15 players in the country?) Wilson has openly declared that Michigan is his leader.

2018
Tyrique Wheatley – CB – Ann Arbor (MI) Pioneer: Wheatley, the younger brother of Terius (see above), is a 5’11”, 165 lb. prospect with no offers at this time.

    this OT wilson and the QB mcaffrey seem to be the staffs top 2 overall ’17 targets right?

    they obviously have one or more guys topping their board at each position but just seems like an elite LT (even more so after seeing this current class shake out) and another top QB prospect prob weighted a little heavier than some other top position targets.

    hopefully theyre able to seriously contend for and eventually land 1 of the top 2-3 all purpose RBs as theyve been lacking those type backs for over a decade and next years class seems to include a few real nice options (especially compared to lack of legit options this year) with at least some mutual interest

      Well, I don’t know if those are THE top two options on Michigan’s board, but they’re two OF the top targets.
