Michigan Thursday: Got One - Missed One and Visit Updates

Michigan thought they might land a number of top recruits yesterday.   They got one and lost one. 

Khalid Kareem one of the state's top players changed his mind yesterday morning and picked Alabama over the Wolverines.   As the one of the posters on Mgoblog said that made me laugh is: "that damn earthquake simulator strikes again!"  Khalid said, he wanted to compete early for playing time for a team that competes for National Championships.   With Bama's roster, I'm not sure how early he will be able to compete for playing time, Mr. Hand didn't see a ton of time last year.

As for other DE prospects Michigan is recruiting:  Xavier Kelly from Kansas and Ron Johnson Jr. who is on campus right now.

The player that committed yesterday is a 6'6 270 pound 4 star OT Devery Hamilton.   Michigan is quickly assembling one of the best offensive lines classes in the country with Hamilton, Swenson, Onwenu, and Bredeson.   Michigan has also heavy interest from highly ranked guys like Terrance Davis and EJ Price.    Welcome aboard Devery! 

Visit Updates 

On Campus:

  • 4 Star TE Naseir Upshur from Philly
  • 4 Star WR Ahmir Mitchell from NJ
  • 4 Star DE Ron Johnson Jr. from NJ
  • 4 Star (2017) Center Cesar Ruiz
Would love to land all 4 of those guys but I would put Upshur and Johnson on commit watch.   After the Kareem Bama commit, I would be surprised if Johnson left campus with out a commit.

Coming Friday:
  • 5 Star DT and #1 Player in the nation Rashan Gary will be in Ann Arbor this weekend.  He is visiting OSU today. 
Coming in July: 4 Star WR Brad Hawkins has rescheduled his visit for July 18th

Visited but not coming:
  •  ND Transfer Jhonny Williams will be looking at other programs as Michigan doesn't have enough scholarships right now.  Since he is a transfer Jhonny needs a scholarship right now, even though he would have to sit out a year.
