|Woodbridge (VA) Senior defensive end Da'Shawn Hand|
Wayne (NJ) St. Joseph athlete Kiy Hester decommitted from Rutgers. Hester had committed to the Scarlet Knights back in late June, but now the program has suffered from four decommitments in recent weeks. Hester now appears to be looking at Arkansas, Michigan State, and Vanderbilt as possible landing spots.
Jacksonville (FL) Raines cornerback Lamont Simmons decommitted from Rutgers. Simmons was offered by USC approximately a week prior to his decommitment, so he may be setting himself up to commit to the Trojans.
ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2016
Wake Forest (NC) Rolesville defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence was offered by Michigan. He's a 6'5", 300 lb. prospect with offers from Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, North Carolina, North Carolina State, and South Carolina; the Gators appear to be the leaders. He looks more like an offensive lineman to me, but he's fairly athletic for his size and could be a clogger on the defensive line, too.
OFF THE BOARD
St. Louis (MO) DeSmet offensive tackle Andy Bauer recommitted to Missouri. Yes, he was once committed to the Tigers, then flipped to Ole Miss, then chose the Tigers again. He appears to be angling for the Class of 2014 Jordan Payton Award.
Dallas (TX) Bishop Dunne cornerback Nick Watkins committed to Notre Dame. Watkins was a kid who had early high interest in Michigan, but as time went on, the interest seemed to become less and less reciprocated from Michigan.
Woodbridge (VA) Senior defensive end Da'Shawn Hand will be making his college choice today, which is his birthday. The other two schools in the running are Alabama and Florida, but there are a lot of Michigan "insiders" feeling good about Hand choosing the Wolverines. Here's a scouting report I did on Hand after his junior year.
