Under Armour Game rosters announced
Michigan has several commitments - and a handful of offered prospects - playing in the 2014 Under Armour All-America Game. See the team assignments here.
Team NitroParamus (N.J.) Catholic offensive lineman Juwan Bushell-Beatty - commit
A three-star and teammate of fellow U-M pledge Jabrill Peppers, Bushell-Beatty is a 6-5, 295-pounder who could play either guard or tackle at the next level.
St. Clairsville (Ohio) linebacker Michael Ferns - commit
Ferns is a four-star and the No. 202 player in the nation. He was Michigan's first pledge in the 2014 class, and will be one of the first to hit campus, enrolling just days after his participation in the Under Armour Game. The 6-3, 233-pounder projects to inside linebacker.
Grand Rapids (Mich.) Christian wide receiver Drake Harris - commit
Harris is a four-star and the No. 106 player in the country. The 6-4, 180-pounder is expected to miss the game due to injury, but may still make the trip down to Florida. Like Ferns, he will enroll in January.
Salt Lake City Highland defensive tackle Bryan Mone - commit
Mone is a four-star and the No. 185 player in the nation. Like a number of other teammates, the 6-4, 315-pounder will enroll at Michigan just days after the Under Armour game.
Paramus (N.J.) Catholic defensive back Jabrill Peppers - commit
Peppers is a five-star and the second-best player in the country according to Rivals.com. The 6-1, 210-pounder is a high school teammate of fellow pledge (and Team Nitro member) Juwann Bushell-Beatty.
Richmond (Va.) Collegiate quarterback Wilton Speight - commit
Speight is a three-star, but at 6-6, 217 pounds has the physical potential to earn a higher ranking with a strong performance at the Under Armour game. He will enroll at Michigan after the week in Florida.
Warren (Mich.) De La Salle linebacker Jared Wangler - commit
Wangler is a three-star who mostly used his 6-2, 218-pound frame to play safety, not linebacker as a high school senior. He will use the Under Armour Game to prove that he is physical enough to move into the box at the next level.
Lewisville (Texas) Hebron safety Jamal Adams - offered
The four-star Adams received an early Michigan offer, but never showed much interest in the Wolverines.
Norcross (Ga.) defensive end Lorenzo Carter - offered
The four-star Carter received an early Michigan offer, but never showed much interest in the Wolverines.
River Ridge (La.) John Curtis Christian wide receiver Malachi Dupre - offered
The four-star Dupre received an early Michigan offer, but never showed much interest in the Wolverines.
Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie - offered
The three-star McKenzie is expected to end up at Notre Dame, and did not show much interest in his Michigan offer.
Olathe (Kan.) South offensive lineman Braden Smith - offered
Smith removed Michigan from consideration following a spring visit to Ann Arbor.
Bamberg (S.C.) Erhardt tight end Kevin Crosby - offered, South Carolina commit
Nashville (Tenn.) Montgomery Bell Academy offensive lineman Alex Bars - offered, Notre Dame commit
Bars is the younger brother of U-M redshirt freshman Blake Bars, but is more highly regarded than big bro. Although they won't face each other in college beyond their freshman year, he built a friendship with fellow team Nitro member and U-M pledge Michael Ferns at the Rivals Five-Star Challenge this summer.
St. Louis De Smet offensive lineman Andy Bauer - offered, Missouri commit
Charlotte (N.C.) Catholic tight end Jeb Blazevich - offered, Georgia commit
Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith defensive tackle Andrew Brown - offered, Virginia commit
Woodbridge (Va.) defensive end Da'Shawn Hand - offered, Alabama commit
Hand is a five-star and the top prospect in the country. Although Michigan was in his final group, the 6-4, 248-pounder broke hearts across Wolverine nation by committing to Alabama Nov. 14.
Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas wide receiver [db]Corey Holmes[/db] - offered, Notre Dame commit
Holmes held Michigan in high regard early in his recruiting process, but that interest faded and he ultimately pledged to the Irish.
Wellington (Fla.) Palm Beach Central offensive lineman [db]K.C. McDermott[db] - offered, Miami commit
Olney (Md.) Good Counsel offensive lineman [db]Sam Mustipher[/db] - offered, Notre Dame commit
Although he's a good friend of Drew Countess (whose older brother Blake is a Wolverine), Mustipher opted for the Iriah over the summer.
Dallas Bishop Dunne cornerback Nick Watkins - offered, Notre Dame commit
Team HighlightNew Orleans St. Augustine running back Leonard Fournette - offered
Fournette is a five-star and the No. 3 player in the country. He expressed early interest in a visit to Ann Arbor, but never made the trip work and the Wolverines have faded from his interest. He is expected to choose between Alabama and LSU.
Gardena (Calif.) Serra cornerback Adoree' Jackson - offered
The five-star Jackson was high on Michigan early in the process - he's a Midwest native from the St. Louis area - but a desire to run for an elite track program in addition to participating in bigtime football saw U-M fade.
La Mirada (Calif.) tight end Tyler Luatua - offered
The four-star Luatua received an early Michigan offer, but his interest in the Wolverines faded before he ever made it to Ann Arbor.
Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara offensive lineman Damian Prince - offered
The five-star Prince received an early Michigan offer, but never showed much interest in the Wolverines.
Long Beach (Calif.) Poly safety John Smith - offered
The five-star Smith received an early Michigan offer, and the Wolverines were once high on his list. Losses for the Maize and Blue and a weak season in Ann Arbor saw him direct his attention elsewhere, canceling an official visit to U-M.
Washington (D.C.) Friendship Academy defensive back Jalen Tabor - offered
The five-star Tabor received an early Michigan offer, but never showed much interest in the Wolverines.
Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton offensive lineman Casey Tucker - offered
The four-star Tucker received an early Michigan offer, and although he reignited interest in U-M after decommitting from USC, the Wolverines are no longer in contention.
Virginia Beach (Va.) Bayside safety Quin Blanding - offered, Virginia commit
Arlington (Texas) Martin defensive end Myles Garrett - offered, Texas A&M commit
Chicago De La Salle offensive lineman Jamarco Jones - offered, Ohio State commit
Michigan was in his final group of four, but Jones selected to play at rival Ohio State instead.
West Monroe (La.) offensive lineman Cameron Robinson - offered, Alabama commit
Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy athlete Bo Scarbrough - offered, Alabama commit
Saluda (S.C.) defensive tackle Dexter Wideman - offered, Florida State commit
New Orleans St. Augustine defensive back Jermaine Roberts - offered, Texas commit
