Recruiting Update: September 25, 2012

Washington (DC) Friendship Collegiate linebacker Yannick Ngakoue decommitted from Maryland.  I don't blame him because Maryland is terrible.  Michigan still isn't in the picture, though.

OFF THE BOARD (2013, 2014)
Piscataway (NJ) Piscataway athlete Nadir Barnwell committed to Rutgers.  Michigan was recruiting him as a cornerback, along with Rutgers, but he could also play wide receiver at the next level.

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech linebacker Deon Drake, a 2014 prospect, committed to Michigan State.  He didn't have a Michigan offer yet.  Michigan is likely going to be very selective with their offers to linebackers in the 2014 class, because they took four in 2012 and have two lined up in 2013.  Drake is a decent linebacker, but not an elite one, and the weakside linebacker position looks to be in good hands for a few years with Desmond Morgan, James Ross, Antonio Poole, and Kaleb Ringer already playing that position.

Check out the series of Recruit Tracker posts for updates on how the seasons of Michigan's 2013 recruits are going.

I've been saying this for several weeks, but with four or five high school games on film and the upcoming bye week, I expect some more 2014 offers to go out before Michigan's next contest.  Recruiting news has been slow for the past month or two, but now I expect it to pick up a little bit.
