Michigan Thursday: Lands One of The Top Corners In The Nation

I love it when a plan comes together!

Michigan landed a very important recruit on Wednesday night, when 4 star Instate CB Ambry Thomas choose the Wolverines.   Many see Ambry as a bigger, faster more physical Jourdan Lewis, which is about the best comparison you can make. 

During Nike's Opening 7 on 7 games, many of the WR's were hurt and Ambry played WR and was making great catches.   Thomas might play both ways and could make a difference on next years team.  

Thomas is 5'11 and 170 pounds and played his high school football at MLK  in Detroit.  He is rated a 4 star recruit across the board.    24/7 loves Thomas and ranks him as the #3 CB in the country and #31 player in the nation.  His offer list is really long and I will include some of the top schools here:  Both AZ schools, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, LSU, MSU, Nebraska, ND, OSU, Oklahoma, Penn State, USC, UCLA, and Wisconsin.   Michigan State told Ambry that he was their #1 target on the Spartans recruiting board.

Again this is a great pick up right before a huge recruiting weekend.  There might be room for one more elite corner but with the numbers starting to get tight, this could also could be it.  I hope DP-J is next to drop!

As an FYI Thomas is cousins with instate safety commit JK-P.  Michigan now has 6 instate commitments to the 2017 class.

  • Coach Harbaugh and Fisch were in home with WR Tarik Black last night.

  • Caris LeVert played in his first NBA game last night and recorded 3 steals.

  • DP-J will take his official visit to A2 this weekend.  He will be an early commit, so he is on the clock for a decision.

  • Rumor Mill:  Lane Kiffin to Houston and Shane Morris to CMU?

Great catch for Michigan! I often think about competition in recruiting... Michigan /Michigan State battling over same recruits... then you look at Ohio State (centrally located) in Ohio, with only small colleges and a smattering of MAC schools at a fair distance. This to me is quite an advantage over schools that have to fight for recruits on the same turf (USC/UCLA).

Nijee Harris rumblings seem to be getting louder around his upcoming visit...... early enrollee, last scheduled visit to A2 and his mom has been saying positive things about Michigan........

Won't be shocked if we land DPJ, Wilson, Anthony, Harris, Ruiz, Collins, Singleton and Black.

Hopefully Tufele as well but not as sure with him.
