Wolverine Wednesday: BBQ Update - RJ Moten Has A Decision To Make

Michigan Football will host its annual BBQ at the Big House this weekend and the headliner at the event will be RJ Moten, a 4 star athlete that is expected to play DB if he commits to Michigan.

RJ is 6'0 and 200 pounds and ranks the #93 player to 24/7.  He plays both ways in NJ at RB and at Safety.   He is known for his pass catching skills out of the backfield on offense.   Here's the catch, he is also a star centerfielder on the baseball team.   If he comes to Ann Arbor its expected he will play both Baseball and Football.   The issue is, he could get drafted by Major League Baseball and could take the money and run.

This seems to be a risk Don Brown and Jimmy are willing to take to get this talented athlete on campus.  You know Jimmy loves that RJ plays baseball.  RJ is expected to announce his decision later this week, so the timing seems strong that he will be a Wolverine. 

Michigan will also host instate Safety prospect Makari Paige this weekend.   Makari is another 4 star Safety from West Bloomfield who has offers from the likes of Ohio State, UK, PSU, Arizona and others.   Paige is known as big hitter and could even grow into the Viper role on his 6'4 185 frame.  I would also put Makari on commit watch.

Michigan could land 2 Safeties this weekend! In a 2020 class that is getting pretty full.

I also expect there will be many 2021 guys in town for the BBQ as well.
