|Birmingham (MI) Brother Rice linebacker Jon Reschke|
Bloomfield (MI) Brother Rice linebacker Jon Reschke was offered by Michigan. Reschke is a 6'2", 230 lb. prospect who committed to Michigan State back in February. This is a bit of an odd offer because Michigan told guys like E.J. Levenberry, Alex Anzalone, and Shane Jones that they were done recruiting linebackers after Ben Gedeon committed. I do not think the coaches would go back on their word, so this likely means that a 2013 commit is wavering or a current player is going to wrap up his Michigan career earlier than expected. Reschke himself is a Michigan State legacy, but MSU's season has gone downhill; he's also friends with incoming quarterback Shane Morris. I was not high on Reschke's junior film, but his senior highlights below show a kid who has improved significantly since his junior year.
ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2014
Tarpon Springs (FL) East Lake wide receiver Artavis Scott was offered by Michigan. Scott is a 5'11", 180 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and South Carolina, among others. He's also the teammate of fellow 2014 offeree Mason Cole, an offensive lineman who said that the offer to Scott helps Michigan's chances. Both Cole and Scott have visited Michigan this year, which is significant since they came all the way from Florida.

In case you're interested, Duluth (GA) Peachtree Ridge offensive tackle Orlando Brown - the 6'9", 375 lb. behemoth - finally has a highlight film posted.
Also, Chicago (IL) Hales Franciscan offensive tackle Denzel Ward, who is committed to Michigan for 2014, released his film yesterday. The kid is very athletic, and it's immediately obvious why Michigan offered him.
