|Woodbridge (VA) Woodbridge defensive end Da'Shawn Hand|
Kyle Berger - LB - Cleveland (OH) St. Ignatius: Berger recently picked up an offer from Arkansas, but the battle for his services appears to be between Michigan and Ohio State. I put together a scouting report on him a few weeks ago.
Tommy Doles - C - Grand Rapids (MI) Christian: Doles is a 6'4", 255 lb. center prospect with offers from Iowa State, Michigan, and Northwestern. Many analysts believe it's just a matter of time before Doles commits to the Wolverines.
Michael Ferns III - LB - St. Clairsville (OH) St. Clairsville: Ferns committed to Michigan last August. He has since turned into a recruiting juggernaut for Michigan and has started sending out "Team 135" t-shirts to each of the other commits in the 2014 class.
Da'Shawn Hand - DE - Woodbridge (VA) Woodbridge: You probably know about Hand already - one of the top few football recruits in the nation. I did a scouting report on him a few weeks ago.
Drake Harris - WR - Grand Rapids (MI) Christian: Harris has offers from all over the country. He recently de-committed from Michigan State and has plans to visit Florida, Notre Dame, and other schools in the coming months. This would be four weeks in a row he has made it to Michigan's campus. UPDATE: Harris is no longer planning to visit.
Gary Hosey - LB - Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Hosey is a 6'0", 225 lb. prospect with offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, Illinois, and Toledo. Michigan appears to be looking for just two linebackers in this class - Michael Ferns III is already committed to play middle linebacker, and they need a SAM linebacker. Hosey appears to be a long shot for a Michigan offer.
Malik McDowell - DE - Detroit (MI) Loyola: McDowell is a 6'7", 290 lb. prospect with offers from all over the country. The two major players appear to Michigan and Notre Dame. I have read that McDowell's parents aren't letting him open his recruiting mail until the end of his junior year, so he can concentrate on school and avoid getting wrapped up in the recruiting circus.
Shane Morris - QB - Warren (MI) De La Salle: Morris has already signed with Michigan as part of the 2013 class. Unable to enroll early, he is finishing out his senior year of high school.
Nic Weishar - TE - Chicago (IL) Marist: Weishar is a 6'5", 225 lb. tight end with offers from Arkansas, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. Notre Dame is considered to be the leader for his services. He tore his labrum this past season, but should be fully recovered for his senior year. I did a scouting report on Weishar a few weeks ago.
