Visitors: Michigan vs. Northwestern

Leon McQuay III is the highest touted uncommitted prospect
headed to town this weekend
Adam Bertke - QB - Marion (OH) Local: Bertke is a 6'5", 190 lb. prospect for 2014.  He threw for about 2,300 yards and 25 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2011.  He has no offers at this time.

Jacob Betschel - TE/LB - Jackson (OH) Jackson: Betschel is a 6'4", 230 lb. kid from the class of 2014.  He has no offers at this point.  As a sophomore in 2011, he had 33 tackles, 8 tackles for loss, 1 forced fumble, and 3 fumble recoveries. (Highlights.)

Ian Bunting - TE - Hinsdale (IL) Central: Bunting is a 6'7", 215 lb. tight end prospect from the class of 2014.  He has good speed and obviously a large frame, and he could be a U-back prospect in the same vein as freshman Devin Funchess.  He has a lone offer from Purdue. (Highlights.)

Daniel Cage - DT - Cincinnati (OH) Winton Woods: Cage is a 6'3", 265 lb. defensive tackle from the class of 2014.  He has offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, and Tennessee, and he attends the alma mater of redshirt freshman linebacker Antonio Poole. (Highlights.)

Jamitreus Crockham - RB - Fishers (IN) Hamilton Southeastern: Crockham is a 6'2", 205 lb. back from the class of 2014.  As a sophomore in 2011, he had 131 carries for 1,009 yards and 16 touchdowns.  His lone offer comes from Toledo. (Highlights.)

Cario Davison - S - Galion (OH) Galion: Davison is a 6'2", 190 lb. safety from the 2015 class.  He is teammates with Dareian Watkins, a junior prospect who could very well be on his way to an offer.

Garrett Dickerson - TE - Oradell (NJ) Bergen Catholic: Dickerson is a 6'4", 240 lb. tight end from the class of 2014 who holds offers from Maryland, Northwestern, Ohio State, Pitt, Stanford, and several others.

Logan Dziak - DT - Delaware (OH) Buckeye Valley: Dziak is a 6'3", 275 lb. defensive tackle from the class of 2014.  He has no offers at this point, and does not appear to be a Michigan-caliber athlete. (Highlights.)

Andrew Ford - QB - Camp Hill (PA) Cedar Cliff: Ford is a 6'3", 190 lb. signal caller from the class of 2014.  He has no offers at this point, but he has visited Michigan previously and is the teammate of 2013 tight end Adam Breneman, who was offered by Michigan but committed to Penn State.  As a sophomore in 2011, Ford had 1,362 yards passing, 12 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, and completed 67.3% of his passes.  (Highlights.)

Bruce Hall - OT - Leslie (MI) Leslie: Hall is a 6'5", 255 lb. offensive lineman with a preferred walk-on offer. (Highlights.)

Nathan Hall - S - Sylvania (OH) Southview: Hall is a 6'3", 200 lb. prospect for 2014 with offers from Bowling Green and Toledo.  He's the former teammate of freshman safety Allen Gant. (Highlights.)

Jaleel Hytchye - CB - Cincinnati (OH) La Salle: Hytchye is a 5'11", 170 lb. cornerback with offers from Arizona State, Cincinnati, Northwestern, Penn State, Pitt, and several others.  He's the teammate of 2014 wide receiver Derek Kief, who may (or may not) be offered by Michigan.

Jake Johnson - QB - DeWitt (MI) DeWitt: Johnson is a 6'2", 170 lb. prospect for 2015.  He grew up as a Michigan fan and visited back in April, too, so he could be an in-state prospect to watch down the road.

Da'Mario Jones - WR - Westland (MI) John Glenn: Jones committed to Michigan last week.

John Kelly - S - Oak Park (MI) Oak Park: Kelly is a 5'11", 180 lb. prospect for 2015.  He has no offers at this time.

Derek Kief - WR - Cincinnati (OH) La Salle: Kief is a 6'5", 185 lb. receiver with offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, and Northwestern.  As of a couple weeks ago, he had 856 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns in his junior campaign.  Kief has visited Michigan previously and really seems to be angling for an offer, but he hasn't received one yet. (Highlights.)

Josh Krok - OT - Warren (OH) Harding: Krok is a 6'8", 310 lb. tackle for the class of 2014.  He does not have any scholarship offers at this point, and he looks more like a preferred walk-on type of recruit. (Highlights.)

Jared McCray - OG - Minford (OH) Minford: McCray is a 6'4", 305 lb. guard from the class of 2014.  He has offers from Akron and Kent State, but I don't think he's a Michigan-caliber lineman. (Highlights.)

Leon McQuay III - S - Seffner (FL) Armwood: McQuay is a 6'2", 185 lb. safety/big corner with offers from just about every powerhouse program in the country.  Florida State, Michigan, USC, and Vanderbilt have been mentioned as possibilities recently, with FSU receiving an uptick in optimism lately.  As a junior in 2011, he had 66 tackles, 4 interceptions, and 12 pass breakups.  Here's a scouting report I wrote up on him from July.

Bryan Mone - DT - Salt Lake City (UT) Highland: Mone is a 6'4", 315 lb. tackle for the class of 2014. He put on a bunch of weight between his sophomore and junior seasons, getting up above 300 after being about 260 last year.  Mone was the first class of 2014 prospect to have been offered by the Wolverines, and he's the former teammate of freshman fullback Sione Houma.  As a sophomore in 2011, he had 39 tackles and 3 sacks. (Highlights.)

Brent Morris - WR - Warren (MI) De La Salle: Morris is Shane's class of 2014 brother.  He has no offers at this time, and I would not expect him to receive a Michigan offer.

Shane Morris - QB - Warren (MI) De La Salle: Morris committed to Michigan last year. Here are his junior highlights.

Kyle Rachwal - TE - Lapeer (MI) East: Rachwal has visited Michigan several times periously.  He's a 6'3", 225 lb. tight end for the class of 2014.  He has no offers at this time. (Junior highlights.)

Travis Smith - QB - Ithaca (MI) Ithaca: Smith is a 6'2", 200 lb. prospect for 2014.  As a sophomore in 2011, he had 2,378 passing yards, 23 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions; he also ran for 969 yards and 25 touchdowns.  He has no offers at this time, but he looks like a kid who will be getting some attention from the MAC schools, if not the higher levels. (Highlights.)

Scott Sypniewski - LS - Ottawa (IL) Marquette: Sypniewski committed to Michigan back in June.

Logan Tuley-Tillman - OT - Peoria (IL) Manual: Tuley-Tillman committed to Michigan back in February.  Here's a look at highlights from his senior season.

Jared Wangler - S - Warren (MI) De La Salle: Wangler is the son of former Michigan quarterback John Wangler.  He might be a future walk-on player at Michigan, but he likely doesn't have the talent to be offered a scholarship.

Dareian Watkins - WR - Galion (OH) Galion: Watkins is a 6'2", 192 lb. wide receiver prospect from the 2014 class.  He has offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Northwestern, and Purdue, among others.  As a sophomore playing quarterback in 2011, he had 100 carries for 559 yards and 10 touchdowns, along with 1,256 yards passing, 16 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions.  Watkins isn't a real blazer, but he is a decent runner after the catch and is solidly built; he looks like a guy who could come in and play in the slot for Al Borges.

Parrker Westphal - CB - Bolingbrook (IL) Bolingbrook: Westphal is a 6'0", 180 lb. prospect for the class of 2014.  He has offers from Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and several others.  As a sophomore in 2011, he had 56 tackles, 20 pass breakups, 7 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble, and 2 fumble recoveries.  He's a solidly built corner with decent speed, and it sounds like the coaches want him to play boundary corner and/or slot corner.  Michigan reportedly set the tone for his visit experiences and is generally considered to be his leader.  Former Michigan cornerback Todd Howard is his position coach at Bolingbrook. (Highlights.)

Csont'e York - WR - Harper Woods (MI) Chandler Park: York committed to Michigan back in May.


  1. Rather than writing out "from the class of 2014" for each kid, you might consider a separate section and heading for 2014 guys and 2013 guys.

  2. What do you think of LTT's senior tape? Looks much better to me.

    1. If you click on the link to his senior highlights, I made a few comments to that effect. He has definitely improved.

  3. I think the fact that Bryan Mone got the first 2014 offer has awesome trivia potential. I'll bet the house that the first offer of a given year has never gone to someone from Utah. Just statistically unlikely ...
