If your not familiar with the BBQ, Michigan charges the recruits and family members a small amount to attend the event (so not to break NCAA rules). Recruits families gets to interact with the coaches and coaches family in a relaxed environment. Recruits can bond with coaches on a another level and it's also great for families to met other families so new friendships can be created. Each year we see a couple of BBQ commits (either during the weekend or the week after).
Touch the Banner has given us this great list of visitors for BBQ on Sunday:
Ben Bredeson -OT
Matt Falcon - RB
Brad Hawkins, Jr. - WR
Kiante Enis - ATH
Ron Johnson, Jr. - DE
Brandon Peters - QB
Michael Onwenu - OG
David Reese - LB
Erik Swenson - OT
High Value Prospects:
Donnie Corley - WR: Visited Wednesday and Michigan making up ground on MSU and OSU but is it enough?
Terrance Davis - OG - TD has been very high on Michigan for a long time. With the class near full, he has to be on commit watch this weekend.
Lavert Hill - CB - longtime Penn State commit has a brother on Michigan and his recruitment has been hot and cold with the Wolverines. Lately it seems to be "hotter" then usual. With only one more CB going to be taken will he grab that spot?
Carlo Kemp - DE - recruit from Colorado high on the Wolverines and the Irish.
Ahmir Mitchell - WR - We know this recruitment all too well. Commit watch this weekend.
Sir Patrick Scott - CB - 3 star CB with Michigan #1 on his list. If he waits to commit, there might not be a spot. He better jump at a commit if he has a chance this weekend. I would be a bit surprised if he didn't leave Ann Arbor as a commit.
Jonathan Smith - LB - a 3 star LB from NC
Erroll Thompson - LB - a 4 star LB with a long list of offers.
Johncarlo Valentin - OG- Is there a spot for this talented 4 star offensive lineman? If he gets a chance to commit, he might want to take it.
Corey Bolds - DE - Paramus (NJ) Catholic
Carter Dunaway - TE - Bloomfield Hills (MI) Brother Rice: Committed
Ja'Raymond Hall - OT - Oak Park (MI) Oak Park
K.J. Hamler - WR - Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary's:
