Michigan Friday: Big Final Recruiting Visit Weekend

Wednesday is the early signing period for high school football players with offers to play college football.  Even though the first Wednesday in February is still National Signing Day, most programs try to get their class cemented in December.  If you don't sign in December, your really not committed, are you?

The final visit weekend prior to signing day is always a big one and this weekend is no exception.  Lets see who is attending:

First off:  Illinois 4 star OT Trever Keegan announces tonight at his high school.   Michigan feels confident this is a pledge for the good guys.  His announcement is at 7:30 EST.

2019 Visitors:

  • Gabe Newburg - Commit will take a visit to A2.  

  • Danielson Ike - a huge OT at 6'6 300 pounds, he is a 3 star but has a number of high offers from the likes of Alabama, Oklahoma, etc.  This official visit will go a long way of him making a decision for Wednesday. 

  • Cornelius Johnson, 4 star WR from CT, a big need for Michigan.  His mom went to Michigan and father went to Stanford.  His final list is Michigan, Stanford, ND, and Alabama.  WOTS is that ND and Stanford have other needs and might not be taking another WR in this class, which opens the door wide open to A2.  

  • Sam Snyder FL 3 star TE is an interesting one.  He has offers from the likes of FSU, Baylor, Rutgers, Wake Forest, Maryland and others.  Sam was also formerly a Louisville commit.   He is taking a trip to Ann Arbor without an offer.   Per 24/7 Sam is no longer coming up this weekend, which pretty much removes him from consideration.  This probably also means good news with other prospects.

  • Anthony Solomon 4 star LB out of FL.  He is a Miami commit that always had an eye on Ann Arbor even before Manny Diaz leaped to Temple.  He has offers from pretty much the entire SEC and could be on "commit watch" this weekend.  (Miami has got hit with 6 de-commits to the 2019 and 2020 classes this week)

Usually there is also a surprise visitor or two.  Michigan was also trying to get a couple DT's that were offered late. 

BTW Insiders expect instate DE/TE Darius Robinson to pick Missouri.  He is not scheduled to visit A2 this weekend.  

Michigan of course is also recruiting very hard 5 star DE Zach Harrison and 4 star LB Kalen DeLoach who have been on campus a number of times. 

I'm sure you will see a number of recruits at Crisler when #4 Michigan takes on Western on Saturday.

Off topic here but I'm hearing rumors that Higdon makes sit out the bowl game. Any truth to that?
