Recruiting Update: June 17, 2013

Lee's Summit (MO) Lee's Summit linebacker Jimmie Swain IV was offered by Michigan. He's a 6'3", 210 lb. prospect who recently announced a top five of Kansas State, Michigan, Nebraska, Northwestern, and TCU. It was rumored that he got an offer a couple months ago, but then it turned out that the coaches were just "interested" but had not fully offered. According to 247's Composite ranking, he's a 3-star, the #33 outside linebacker, and the #419 player overall. I don't say this often, but I think he could play any of the three linebacker positions - he can diagnose plays and run well enough to play WILL, he's big enough to grow into a MIKE, and he's long enough and a good enough blitzer to be a SAM.

Washington (DC) H.D. Woodson cornerback DuWayne Johnson was offered by Michigan. He's a 6'1", 157 lb. prospect with offers from Clemson, Georgia, Miami, and North Carolina, among others.

Here's a list of visitors from this past week.

Here's a pretty extensive list of players who are camping at Michigan this summer. It's a four-day camp altogether, and this is the camp that produced offers to guys like Channing Stribling and Damien Harris last summer.

Here's the working list of BBQ at the Big House visitors for next month.


  1. You know I don't think anyone has ever showed appreciation for how you post early in the morning. So Thanks! All the other sites never really get anything going until noon.

    I really like Swains game..I would love to get him or Owens. What's your thoughts on the chances of getting either one?

    1. Well, thanks for the appreciation! I'm an early riser, even on weekends or vacations. I'm glad some people appreciate having new material early in the morning.

      Most people seem to think Owens will end up at Georgia, and it's always tough to pull guys out of the south. I'm wondering if the Swain offer has something to do with the waning chances of getting Owens. Swain immediately put Michigan in his top five, so perhaps that bodes well. If the coaches can get him up to Ann Arbor soon, I think they have a good shot. Michigan is the best offer on his list, in my opinion.

  2. another thank you for early morning pozts.....up at 4 myself.
