Visitors: Michigan vs. Michigan State


November 13, 2019

I will be adding tot his list throughout the week.

2020

Blake Corum – RB – Baltimore (MD) St. Frances: Corum is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Theo Johnson – TE – Windsor (Ontario) Holy Names: Johnson is a 6’6″, 242 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #3 tight end, and #95 overall. The crystal ball is 60% for Penn State and 40% undecided; it appears to me that if it’s not Penn State, it will be Michigan. This is his last official visit before announcing his decision on November 18.

James Pogorelc – OT – Chantilly (VA) Chantilly: Pogorelc is a 6’7″, 270 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, North Carolina, Stanford, and Virginia, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #31 offensive tackle, and #369 overall. Right now his crystal ball is 100% for Stanford.

Roman Wilson – WR – Honolulu (HI) St. Louis: Wilson is committed to Michigan (LINK). This is his official visit.

Hit the jump for more.

2021

2022

2023

Evan Safreed – TE – Woodbridge (VA) Woodbridge: Safreed is a 6’3″, 215 lb. prospect with no offers at this time. He’s a teammate of 2021 defensive tackle James Gillespie (see above).

    Chances look good with Rocco Spindler. Per a search, looks like this will be his 6th campus visit (BBQ, Army, notre dame, and now msu, spring game, and psu last year).

    Thunder – do you think Spindler ends up on OL or DL? He seems to get listed as a DL but there has been some talk the UM likes him better on the OL. He seems more likely to end up in Ann Arbor than Dellinger. I would personally be happy with a borderline 5 star on either side of the line.

      Yeah, I like him better on the offensive line. He’s a little heavy-footed to be much of an impact guy on defense, in my opinion. He’d be more of an old-school nose guard in college, and I don’t think those guys are very valuable these days.

    I would like to see a whole lot more DB recruiting.

    “Backup secondary appears to be Gemon Green/Jaylen Kelly-Powell at corner and Sammy Faustin/Hunter Reynolds at safety.”

    Yikes.

    Trust Zordich? Fair point. There’s a reasonable argument for optimism.

    But I don’t see guys like Stribling – who pushed into the lineup as a freshman or Clark – an obvious physical freak who was always going to take time or Thomas – a highly ranked and highly praised talent who just couldn’t see the field on this roster.

    Zordich has answered every call for concern thusfar but there are no guarantees it’ll happen again. And we know OSU will exploit the weakest link.

      Meanwhile there are 16 viable RBs to rotate through.
