Visitors: Michigan vs. Maryland

Tampa (FL) Wharton wide receiver Auden Tate
Here's a list of players who will be visiting Michigan for their game against Maryland this weekend, the final home game of the season.

Jack Dunaway - DE - Bloomfield Hills (MI) Brother Rice:
 Dunaway is committed to Michigan as a preferred walk-on defensive end. He's the son of former Michigan tight end Craig Dunaway.

John Kelly - S - Oak Park (MI) Oak Park: Kelly is a 5'10", 194 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, and Minnesota, among others. He's a 247 Composite 3-star, the #62 athlete, and #656 overall. Michigan offered him after cornerback Garrett Taylor decommitted, but the Wolverines are looking at Kelly as a safety. Kelly averaged 10.7 yards/carry as a senior this year, ending up with 1,321 yards and 21 touchdowns.

Alex Malzone - QB - Bloomfield Hills (MI) Brother Rice: Michigan's quarterback commit for the 2015 class (LINK), Malzone was 211/325 (65%) for 2,998 yards, 38 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions.

Grant Newsome - OT - Lawrenceville (NJ) Lawrenceville School: Newsome committed to Michigan in June (LINK). He's now rated as a 247 Composite 4-star, the #21 offensive tackle, and #209 overall. This will be his official visit.

Grant Perry - WR - Bloomfield Hills (MI) Brother Rice: Perry is a 6'0", 185 lb. prospect with offers from a bunch of MAC schools and is angling for a Michigan offer to follow his quarterback teammate, Malzone. Perry is a 247 Composite 3-star, the #130 wide receiver, and #1047 overall.

Auden Tate - WR - Tampa (FL) Wharton: Tate is a 6'4", 215 lb. prospect who committed to Florida State in August; he also has offers from Florida, Georgia, and Michigan, among others. It always looked like a Michigan vs. Florida State battle with the Seminoles leading. An official visit, this will be Tate's first time in Ann Arbor.

Hit the jump for 2016, 2017, and 2018 prospects.

John Fitzgerald - WR - Baltimore (MD) Gilman: Fitzgerald is a 6'3", 210 lb. prospect with no offers at this time.

Devery Hamilton - OT - Baltimore (MD) Gilman: I wrote a fairly comprehensive blurb on Hamilton the other day (LINK) after he was offered by Michigan.

Ellison Jordan - DT - Balitmore (MD) Gilman: Jordan is a 6'0", 255 lb. prospect with offers from Maryland, Penn State, and Virginia Tech, among others. He's a 247 Composite 4-star, the #13 defensive tackle, and #167 overall.

Jeremy Larkin - RB - Cincinnati (OH) LaSalle:

Dorian Maddox - RB - Baltimore (MD) Gilman:
Maddox is a 5'11", 205 lb. prospect with no offers at this point. He could also be a strong safety at the next level.

Brian Manuel - DT - Washington (DC) St. John's Collegiate: Manuel is a 6'5", 320 lb. prospect with no offers at this time. He is a massive human being who could probably afford to shed a little bit of weight, but he will definitely earn some FBS offers soon.

Shamar Shanks - LB - Baltimore (MD) Gilman: Shanks is a 6'1", 205 lb. prospect with no offers at this time.

Stephen Spanellis - OG - Baltimore (MD) Gilman: You can read more about Spanellis in the Hamilton link above.

Korey Stevens - CB - Baltimore (MD) Gilman:

Abdullah Yaseen - CB - Oak Park (MI) Oak Park:
Yaseen is a 5'9", 166 lb. prospect with no offers at this time.

Troy Brown - WR - Flint (MI) Beecher: Brown is a 6'1", 200 lb. prospect with no offers at this point. He plays wide receiver, but he also looks like a pretty physical safety for being just a sophomore. He claims a 4.56 forty, a 215 lb. bench, and a 315 lb. squat.

Carter Dunaway - TE - Bloomfield Hills (MI) Brother Rice: Dunaway is the younger brother of Carter Dunaway and a teammate of Malzone and Perry.

Kasim Hill - QB - Baltimore (MD) Gilman: Hill is a 6'2", 195 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan State and Syracuse.

Corey Malone-Hatcher - DE - Baltimore (MD) Gilman: Malone-Hatcher is a 6'3", 225 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State. He has visited Alabama several times and has family connections down there, so an Alabama offer may be difficult to ward off.

Camaron Spence - DT - Baltimore (MD) Gilman: Spence is a 6'2", 275 lb. prospect with an offer from Maryland.

Dan Bolden - LB - Cincinnati (OH) Colerain:

Roman Johnson - LB - Xenia (OH) Xenia:

Taron Vincent - DT - Baltimore (MD) Gilman:
 Vincent is the son of former Wisconsin (and Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles) cornerback Troy Vincent, as well as the brother of Troy, Jr. (North Carolina State), whom Michigan recruited in the class of 2014.


  1. Weather for Saturday: 60% chance of rain / freezing rain, high of 40, low of 38. If that guy from Florida commits to Michigan, then he knows exactly what he's signing up for.

  2. I'm glad Tate is coming. He's obviously a long shot but if the next head coach is appealing to him in some way, you never know...

    This kind of thing is why Mgoblog's aborted Maryland boycott never made any sense.

  3. Seems we do agree on somethings Lank
