Recruiting Update: March 25, 2013

Cincinnati (OH) Moeller outside linebacker Sam Hubbard was offered by Michigan.  He's a 6'5", 225 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan State, Ohio State, and Stanford, among others.  He is currently committed to Notre Dame as a lacrosse player, but his football exploits are earning him more attention and making him think twice about which sport to play in college.  Hubbard played safety as a junior in 2012, but with that size, he'll certainly change positions in college.  Hubbard is the #25 athlete and #239 overall player to 247 Sports.  Moeller has produced several Michigan targets in recent years, including LB Shane Jones, WR Monty Madaris, and DE Marcus Rush, each of whom have picked Michigan State.

Plano (TX) West running back Sotonye "Soso" Jamabo was offered by Michigan.  Jamabo is a 6'1", 190 lb. prospect with offers from Ohio State and Oklahoma.  As a sophomore in 2012, he had 1,697 rushing yards, 453 receiving yards, and 28 total touchdowns.  He's currently the #2 player in the state of Texas for the 2015 class and claims a 4.55 forty.  Plano is a hotbed of football talent, with players from the area including Rex Burkhead (Nebraska) and Jackson Jeffcoat (Texas), the latter of which attended West.

Buford (GA) Buford defensive end Isaac Nauta was offered by Michigan.  Several recruiting sites claim this is Michigan's first offer for the 2016 class.  Nauta is a 6'4", 248 lb. prospect with offers from Clemson, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech.  He started for Buford as a freshman this past season, a team that won the Georgia state championship


St. Louis (MO) DeSmet offensive tackle Andy Bauer committed to Ole Miss.  The 6'6", 304-pounder had previously been committed to Missouri, prior to which he visited Michigan and claimed strong interest.  He de-committed from the Tigers several months ago and now follows the recent trend of big-time players (he's Rivals' #92 overall prospect) going to Ole Miss.

Downers Grove (IL) South offensive tackle Erik Swenson has been removed from the board because he apparently never had a Michigan offer.  One was reported months ago on 247 Sports, but with the recent news of Nauta being the first offer for 2016, 247's error seems to have been corrected.  He's still a 6'7", 285 lb. prospect with listed offers from Illinois and Notre Dame, so it's not out of the question for him to be offered down the road.

Here's a list of this past weekend's visitors.

247 Sports updated their top 247 players for the class of 2014.

  1. Thunder,

    Do you think Michigan is likely to lose hold on the Cass Tech pipeline? I saw that a trio is heading down there with Webb for a visit. It seems like the Webb train has certainly passed, and while CT hasn't seemed to produce superstars, it is always great to have a pipeline to a school that produces talent and good athletes. Thoughts?
