Saturday Expected visitors list for Illinois
A couple prospects have dropped off the list of expected visitors for this weekend's game against Illinois - but many more have been added. All the latest updates here.
Uncommitted Prospects2013 Westland (Mich.) John Glenn wide receiver Da'Mario Jones
The unranked Jones is underrated (and in fact not rated at all) thanks to playing in a run-heavy scheme in high school. However, he has enough speed and playmaking ability in his 6-2, 185-pound body to make him an intriguing prospect if Michigan is still looking for a wide receiver down the road.
2014 Jones (Okla.) quarterback David Cornwell
Cornwell is talented, and has good pro-style passer size at 6-5, 215 pounds. He has stayed under-the-radar so far, and his only offer comes from Indiana. However Michigan's coaching staff has reached out to him, and he's repaying their attention with a trip to campus.
2014 Columbus (Ohio) Whetstone quarterback Ramroth Finnegan
A 6-3, 205-pound pro-style passer, Finnegan will be making his first-ever trip up to a game at the Big House. He doesn't yet hold any scholarship offers, but is one of several quarterback options Michigan is evaluating.
2014 Toledo (Ohio) Central Catholic quarterback DeShone Kizer
Kizer has the size - 6-5, 205 pounds - and arm to fill the role of a true pro-style passer. He grew up a Michigan fan, but attention from the Wolverines has been lukewarm at times so far in the recruiting process. A game visit to Ann Arbor could rekindle that interest.
2014 St. Clairsville (Ohio) running back Jaylon Brown
A teammate of Michigan commit Michael Ferns, Brown is a 5-8, 160-pound scatback who is also an effective cornerback for St. Clairsville. He doesn't have any scholarship offers yet, but his athleticism should see him start to pick up bigtime attention.
2014 Chicago De La Salle running back Mikale Wilbon
A talented 5-9, 160-pounder, Wilbon already holds offers from Iowa and Purdue. He is a teammate of fellow 2014 prospect Jamarco Jones, who already holds a Michigan offer.
2014 Mentor (Ohio) tight end Brandon Fritts
A former teammate of Michigan freshman defensive end Tom Strobel, Fritts is a high school wide receiver that could stay at that position in college, or move out to tight end. At 6-4, 210 pounds, he still has the 4.7-second 40-yard dash time to be a possession receiver in college.
2014 Lapeer (Mich.) East tight end/linebacker Kyle Rachwal
Rachwal already visited Michigan for the UMass game, and the 6-1, 230-pounder will be back in Ann Arbor for a second time this fall. He is already fielding attention from bigtime schools like Alabama, and the Wolverines are getting in early.
2014 Middletwon (Ohio) tight end Chance Sorrell
Sorrell initially planned to visit for the Sir Force game a few weeks back, but had to reschedule. The 6-6, 225-pounder will be at Michigan today, instead.
2014 Massillon (Ohio) Washington offensive lineman Nathaniel Devers
The teammate of 2013 Michigan commit Gareon Conley has been high on Michigan for quite some time, and had a solid visit to Ann arbor for the Barbecue at the Big House in July. A Michigan offer could be very tempting for him. At 6-3, 265 pounds, he projects to the interior of the line at the next level.
2014 Grand Rapids (Mich.) Christian offensive lineman Tommy Doles
Another offensive lineman who has Michigan high on his list - but Doles already holds a U-M offer. The 6-4, 245-pounder projects to center at the next level, and a very mobile one at that. He is a teammate of Michigan State commit Drake Harris.
2014 Traverse City (Mich.) West offensive lineman Connor Hayes
The 6-4, 270-pound Hayes was an impressive performer at Michigan's 2012 summer camp. He's 6-4, 270 pounds, and appears bound for guard at the college level. He holds scholarship offers from Central Michigan, Indiana, and Western Michigan.
2014 Chicago De La Salle offensive lineman Jamarco Jones
The only junior on the list (so far) holding a Michigan offer, Jones is a 6-5, 285-pounder who is an aggressive drive blocker. Other schools that have offered include Michigan State and Ohio State.
2014 Massillon (Ohio) Washington offensive lineman Chase Lash
Lash is a 6-5, 285-pounder who is a teammate of Gareon Conley and Nathaniel Devers. He has expressed more interest in Ohio State than Michigan in the past, but a trip to campus could help change his tune about the Wolverines.
2014 North Olmsted (Ohio) offensive lineman Jeff Rotheram
The younger brother of Pitt sophomore Matt Rotheram (a starter on the Panthers' offensive line) is picking up some recruiting attention of his own throughout the Midwest. He is well built at 6-6, 290 pounds, and Michigan is just one of several schools evaluating him for an offer.
2014 Zeeland (Mich.) West offensive lineman Jordan Van Dort
Van Dort camped at Michigan this summer, and impressed the coaching staff enough to earn a game invite this fall. He plays tight end for his high school at 6-5, 280 pounds, but is likely to be an offensive lineman at the next level.
2014 Chicago Hales Franciscan offensive lineman Denzel Ward
Ward was on the fence about heading to Ann Arbor or returning to Purdue this weekend (where he saw Michigan crush the Boilermakers a week ago), but has chosen to see U-M. The 6-9, 280-pounder holds an offer from Purdue, even though he is in his first season playing football.
2014 North Augusta (S. Car.) offensive lineman Jake Whitley
Whitley was a first-team all-area selection as a sophomore, and the recruiting attention has started to flow in. The quick-footed 6-4, 295-pounder doesn't have any offers yet, but several schools are showing early interest.
2014 Cincinnati Summit Country Day defensive tackle Michael Barwick
Barwick impressed Michigan's coaches at their summer camp, and the 6-3, 255-pounder will make yet another trip up to Ann Arbor. Western Michigan has already offered, and his Summit Country Day squad is 7-0.
2014 Traverse City (Mich.) West defensive tackle Jake Khoury
Khoury will be making a trip down to Ann Arbor with his family. The 6-3, 268-pounder impressed at the Adidas invitational, and will send out his first-half junior film soon. Once coaches see that, expect the offers to roll in.
2014 Southfield (Mich.) defensive end Lawrence Marshall
The 6-4, 210-pound Marshall has been an impressive performer for a strong Southfield team this fall. He is a speed rusher off the edge with a frame to add much more weight by the time he gets to the college level.
2014 St. John (Ind.) Lake Central defensive end Gelen Robinson
The younger brother of basketball freshman Glenn Robinson III, Gelen plies his trade on the gridiron, not the hardwood like his brother (and NBA All-Star father). He is a talented all-around athlete, earning Northwest Indiana MVP honors for his exploits in football, wrestling, and track.
2015 Trotwood (Ohio) Madison athlete Kei Beckham
Though he's just a sophomore, Beckham already holds an offer from Illinois. At 5-11, 170 pounds, he'll probably play cornerback at the college level, unless he continues to grow. He is a teammate of 2013 Michigan commit Mike McCray.
2015 Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne athlete Tyree Kinnel
Kinnel is mostly an unknown at this point, but the 5-11, 170-pound defensive back attends the same school as did former Wolverines Terry and Terrence Talbott (and current Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller).
Michigan CommitmentsWarren (Mich.) De La Salle quarterback Shane Morris
Morris will make it to his first Michigan game of the year after having high school contests during the Wolverines' prior two home games. He returned to the lineup for De La Salle last night after missing a couple games with mono.
Novi (Mich.) Detroit Catholic Central running back/athlete Wyatt Shallman
Shallman has already been up to Ann Arbor once this fall, seeing the Wolverines' 63-13 win over UMass. His Detroit Catholic Central team beat Orchard Lake St. Mary's last night.
Harper Woods (Mich.) Chandler Park Academy wide receiver Csont'e York
York has been to both Michigan games so far this fall, and looks to maintain his perfect attendance mark on the season. York has said he'll make it to the game - but he might have to leave early since he plays at 7 p.m.
Detroit East English Village Academy tight end Khalid Hill
Hill was at Michigan's 31-25 victory over Air Force, and plans to make his second trip of the fall. Hill helped lead EEVPA to a victory over Detroit Cody last night.
Detroit Cass Tech offensive lineman David Dawson
Dawson attended the Air Force victory, and will make his second trek of the fall to Ann Arbor. Dawson's Cass Tech squad fell to Detroit King last night.
Peoria (Ill.) Manual offensive lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman
Tuley-Tillman's high school schedule - with Saturday games to start the year - has prevented him from making it up to Ann arbor so far, but he's planning to attend all four remaining home games.
Trotwood (Ohio) Madison linebacker Mike McCray
McCray attended the Air Force game, and this time around, he could be bringing some of his talented teammates from Trotwood-Madison along with him. He's not certain he'll make it to Ann Arbor, but is hopeful.
Alliance (Ohio) Marlington safety Dymonte Thomas
Thomas hasn't been to Ann Arbor yet this fall, but his first trip of the year will be a chance to reconnect with friend and future teammate Shane Morris.
Detroit Cass Tech cornerback Jourdan Lewis
Like Dawson, Lewis was at the Air Force game, and will be making his second trip of the year.
Ottawa (Ill.) Marquette long-snapper Scott Sypniewski
Sypniewski attended most of Michigan's home games a year ago, and looks to make the same trip several times this fall. He previously attended the UMass game.
2014 St. Clairsville (Ohio) linebacker Michael Ferns
Michigan's first pledge in the 2014 class will be making his first game visit to Ann Arbor.
Stay tuned over the course of the week for more updates to the visitors list, and of course check back Saturday to see who actually makes it in.
