Weekend Visitors: May 18-20, 2012

Leon McQuay III
Akron (OH) St. Vincent-St. Mary's LB Dante Booker, Jr.: Booker received a Michigan offer this past week.  Ohio State also recently offered, and Buckeyes cornerback Doran Grant came from St. Vincent-St. Mary's.  Booker's father (Dante, in case you were wondering) played defensive line for the Auburn Tigers.  Many assume that Auburn and Ohio State are the two leaders for the younger Booker's services, but we'll see if Michigan's coaches can create some momentum with the 6'3", 210 lb. linebacker.  He had 157 tackles and 11 sacks as a sophomore last season.

Washington (OH) Massilon OT Nathan Devers: Devers is a 2014 prospect who does not yet have an offer.

Seffner (FL) Armwood CB Leon McQuay III:
McQuay is a 6'2", 185 lb. defensive back with offers from just about everywhere.  While that size would preclude most players from playing cornerback at the next level, that's the position for which Michigan is recruiting him.  It is assumed by most that McQuay will end up staying in SEC country, and his recent fellow Armwood grads haven't ventured farther north than North Carolina or Tennessee except a couple MAC-level recruits who headed to Akron, Penn, Toledo, or Western Michigan.  The big-time recruits who have a choice generally seem to like the warmer weather.

Sturgis (MI) Sturgis QB Chance Stewart:
The 6'6", 205 lb. Stewart only has one offer so far (from Western Michigan), but more are surely on the way.  Whether one comes from Michigan or not might be a different question.  He threw for 1,361 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions as a sophomore in 2011.

  1. Is leon mcquay related to (former atlanta falcon) x-ray mcquay by any chance?
