Timothy Cason II - CB - Clarkston (MI) Clarkston: Cason is a 6'0", 185 lb. prospect with offers from Bowling Green, Toledo, and Western Michigan. With Michigan high on the lists of Adoree' Jackson, Jabrill Peppers, and Parrker Westphal, it might be a while before Cason earns an offer.
Jalen Embry - CB - Detroit (MI) King: Embry is a 5'11", 180 lb. corner with offers from Ball State, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Toledo, and Western Michigan.
Jonathan Hilliman - RB - Jersey City (NJ) St. Peter's Prep: I did a scouting report on Hilliman back in December. Since then he has added offers from Arkansas and Tennessee, among others. He's a 3-star and the #34 running back to 247 Sports. UPDATE: Hilliman is no longer planning to visit this weekend and plans to reschedule a visit for May.
Jake Johnson - QB - DeWitt (MI) DeWitt: Johnson is a 6'2", 180 lb. prospect from the class of 2015. He currently has no offers. As a sophomore in 2012, he had 1,250 yards passing, 16 touchdowns, 400 rushing yards, and 6 rushing touchdowns.
Roderick Johnson - OT - Florissant (MO) Hazelwood Central: Johnson is a 6'7", 310 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Florida State, Missouri, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. He's a 4-star to Rivals and the #183 overall player.
Braden Smith - OT - Olathe (KS) South: Smith is a 6'6", 280 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Stanford, along with numerous others. He's very quiet about the recruiting process, so it's tough to say who his leaders are, but it's obviously a good sign that he's taking the time to visit Ann Arbor. He's the #1 offensive guard to 247 Sports and the #19 overall player to both Rivals and 247.*
Darius West - S - Lima (OH) Central Catholic: West is a 5'11", 197-pounder with offers from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Penn State, West Virginia, and several others. He claims a 4.4 forty and a 275 lb. bench press. West camped at Michigan last summer. He's short-ish but thickly built, sort of in the mold of current Michigan safety Thomas Gordon; I would expect West also to play safety if he were to end up getting offered by and committing to Michigan, but he could play cornerback at some other schools.
*Burns and Smith are visiting midweek.
