*Reagan Cotton - QB - Traverse City (MI) Central:

Bailey Edwards - WR - Chelsea (MI) Chelsea: Edwards is a 6'1", 177 lb. prospect with offers from Minnesota and a handful of MAC programs. He's a 247 Composite 3-star, the #183 wide receiver, and #1234 overall. He's the younger brother of former Wolverine wide receiver Braylon Edwards, as well as Minnesota running back Berkley Edwards.

Trenton Fincher - OT - East Kentwood (MI) East Kentwood: Fincher is a 6'6", 280 lb. prospect with no offers at this time.

Ezra Gray - WR - Lynn Haven (FL) Mosley: Gray is a 5'9", 175 lb. prospect with no FBS offers at this time. He claims a 4.31 forty.

Dele' Harding - LB - Elkton (MD) Eastern Christian Academy: Harding committed to Michigan in October 2014 (LINK). He's current a 247 Composite 3-star, the #21 inside linebacker, and #568 overall.

*Joshua Jackson - QB - Saline (MI) Saline: Jackson, the son of former Michigan running backs coach Fred Jackson and the brother of former wide receiver Jeremy, committed to Virginia Tech in early June (LINK).

Trishton Jackson - QB/WR - West Bloomfield (MI) West Bloomfield: Jackson, coached by former Wolverine Ronald Bellamy, has earned a bunch of MAC offers and Big Ten teams are starting to ramp up their interest (Iowa and Michigan State have offered).

Daniel Joseph - DE - Lake Forest (IL) Lake Forest: Joseph is a 6'3", 240 lb. prospect with offers from Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, and Penn State, among others. He's a 247 Composite 4-star, the #15 strongside end, and #262 overall. Michigan State's 247 writer Sean Scherer has him headed to the Wolverines, while a Vandy writer pegs him for the Spartans; however, Michigan State has picked up several defensive line commits in the past week or two, so they're running low on spots.

 McKeon committed to Michigan on Monday (LINK).

2017
*Jake Allen - QB - Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas: Allen is a 6'3", 197 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati, Florida, Iowa, Miami, Pitt, and Rutgers, among others. He's a high school teammate of several Michigan targets, including 2017 wide receiver Trevon Grimes and a couple 2018 cornerbacks. St. Thomas Aquinas is also the alma mater of Michigan quarterbacks Jake Rudock and John O'Korn. Allen is likely to end up as a Gator.

Conor Doyle - OT - Philadelphia (PA) St. Joseph's:

Carter Dunaway - TE - Bloomfield Hills (MI) Brother Rice:

Blake Gallagher - LB - Needham (MA) St. Sebastian's:

Ja'Raymond Hall - OT - Oak Park (MI) Oak Park: Hall is a 6'5", 255 lb. prospect with offers from Miami-OH and Michigan. He's a 247 Sports 4-star, the #13 offensive tackle, and #82 overall. He has visited Michigan several times, and at this time, he is considered a Michigan lean.

K.J. Hamler - WR - Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary's: Hamler is a 5'9", 155 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, Michigan State, and others. He's a 247 Sports 3-star, the #45 wide receiver, and #283 overall. He has visited Michigan multiple times but is considered a Michigan State lean.

Kasim Hill - QB - Baltimore (MD) Gilman: Hill is a 6'2", 195 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan State, Northwestern, Penn State, Syracuse, and Virginia, among others. He's a 247 Sports 3-star, the #10 pro-style quarterback, and #265 overall. He plays for the father of Michigan tight end/defensive end Henry Poggi. He is also a teammate of 2016 offensive linemen Stephen Spanellis and Devery Hamilton, both of whom have Michigan offers.

Derrick Hubbard - LB - Ann Arbor (MI) Pioneer: Hubbard is a 6'2", 202 lb. prospect who just picked up his first scholarship offer from Toledo. He claims a 4.67 forty.

Hunter Johnson - QB - Brownsburg (IN) Brownsburg: Johnson is a 6'3", 197 lb. prospect with offers from Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Penn State, among others. He's a 247 Sports 4-star, the #1 pro-style quarterback, and #9 overall. He transferred away from Avon (IN) Avon, the home of Brandon Peters, and is now a teammate of 2016 running back Toks Abinrade, who holds a Michigan offer. Johnson is considered to be a Notre Dame lean.

Chris Kolarevic - LB - Traverse City (MI) St. Francis:

Solon Page III - LB - Marietta (GA) Kell: Page is a 6'3", 195 lb. prospect with no offers at this time. As a sophomore in 2014, he made 71 tackles, 5 tackles for loss, and 2 sacks.

Jaylen Kelly-Powell - S - Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Kelly-Powell is a 6'0", 183 lb. prospect with offers from Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and North Carolina, among others. He's a 247 Sports 4-star, the #13 safety, and #189 overall. A teammate of 2016 offensive guard commit Michael Onwenu, Kelly-Powell's Crystal Ball is 100% in favor of Michigan.

Carter Lynch - OT - Philadelphia (PA) St. Joseph's:

*Tyler Lytle - QB - Anaheim (CA) Servite:
 Lytle is a 6'4", 195 lb. prospect with offers from Colorado State and Miami. He was teammates with 2017 wide receiver Osiris St. Brown, who holds a Michigan offer, and 2018 wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown, although the St. Brown brothers are transferring.

Corey Malone-Hatcher - DE - St. Joseph (MI) St. Joseph:

Donovan Peoples-Jones - WR - Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Peoples-Jones is a 6'2", 192 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State, among others. He's a 247 Sports 4-star, the #2 wide receiver, and #12 overall. I believe I mistakenly identified him as the son of a former Michigan player in the past, which I had read in an article some months back, so I apologize for the misidentification. Peoples-Jones recently ran a 4.45 forty and showed off a 38" vertical. His recruitment is considered to be wide open.

Trey Pratt - CB - Suwanee (GA) Peachtree Ridge:

Antjuan Simmons - RB - Ann Arbor (MI) Pioneer: Simmons is a 6'1", 205 lb. prospect with offers from Akron, Eastern Michigan, Miami-OH, and Western Michigan. He claims a 4.55 forty. He probably lacks the speed to be an elite running back, but he's an excitable player and a heavy hitter who could be a strong safety or outside linebacker at the next level.

Allen Stritzinger - RB - Warren (MI) De La Salle: Stritzinger is a 6'0", 180 lb. prospect with offers from Cincinnati, Michigan, and a few MAC schools. He's a 247 Sports 3-star, the #25 running back, and #303 overall. As a sophomore in 2014, he ran for 1,356 yards and 20 touchdowns. He recently named Michigan his leader.

David Terrell, Jr. - WR - Wilmette (IL) Loyola: Terrell is a 5'11", 165 lb. prospect with no offers right now. He is the son of former Michigan and Chicago Bears wide receiver David Terrell.

*Cameron Thomas - QB - Chicago Heights (IL) Marian Catholic:

C.J. Turner - CB - Rochester (NY) Eastridge:


Edward Verdree - DE - Atlanta (GA) Holy Innocents Episcopal: Verdree is a 6'1", 240 lb. prospect with no offers at this time. He claims a 4.91 forty, a 315 lb. bench press, and a 435 lb. squat.

Jamyest Williams - CB - Lawrenceville (GA) Archer: Williams is a 5'9", 170 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. He's a 247 Sports 4-star, the #14 cornerback, and #111 overall. As a sophomore in 2014, he made 60 tackles and 2 interceptions, along with 1,152 total yards and 13 touchdowns on offense. He appears to have sincere interest in Michigan, although it will be difficult to pull him out of the south. Michigan also has offers out to Archer prospects E.J. Price, a 2016 offensive tackle committed to Georgia, and 2017 safety Isaiah Pryor.

Justice Williams - DE - Belleville (MI) Belleville:

2018
Blake Bacevich - LB - Cincinnati (OH) St. Xavier: Bacevich is a 6'3", 215 lb. prospect with no offers at this time. St. Xavier is a pretty steady producer of talent, so he'll be one to watch in the future.

Leddie Brown - RB - Elkton (MD) Eastern Christian Academy: Brown is a 6'1", 190 lb. prospect with no offers at this time. He will be a teammate of Michigan commit Dele' Harding this fall. At least one source had Brown as the #1 prospect in his class, although those things are very fluid this early.

Emil Ekiyor - OG - Indianapolis (IN) Cathedral: Ekiyor is a 6'3", 285 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan and South Florida. He is the son of a former South Florida Bull and Atlanta Falcon. He also attended Michigan's satellite camp in Indiana.

*Kaden Frost - QB - Naples (FL) Gulf Coast:

Isaiah Gaynor - CB - Elkton (MD) Eastern Christian Academy:
 Gaynor is a 5'9", 175 lb. prospect who holds no offers. He is another upcoming teammate of Dele' Harding.

Nick Henkel - QB - Greenwich (CT) Brunswick: Henkel is a 6'1", 161 lb. prospct with no offers right now. As an eighth grader, he completed 71/103 passes for 1,011 yards and 14 touchdowns.

*Brandon Leach - QB - Pinckney (MI) Pinckney: Leach is a 6'8", 220 lb. prospect with no offers at this time.

*Michael Lynn III - QB - Lansing (MI) Sexton:

Phillip Pfaffman - CB - Fayetteville (GA) Whitewater:
 Pfaffman is a 5'9", 160 lb. prospect with no offers at this time.

Tyrone Sampson, Jr. - C - Detroit (MI) East English Village: Sampson's Hudl page lists him at 6'4", 304 lbs. but I have heard that he is not close to being that height. Regardless, he has been earning some buzz as one of the top in-state linemen in this 2018 class.

2019
Dale Chesson - WR - Olivette (MO): Chesson is the younger brother of Michigan redshirt junior wide receiver Jehu Chesson. The younger Chesson is entering high school and I'm not sure where he will play, but Jehu went to St. Louis (MO) Ladue Horton Watkins.

Christian Ford - WR - Lima (OH) Shawnee:

*Sam Johnson III - QB - Southfield (MI) Southfield: Johnson is a 6'3", 180 lb. prospect with offers from Akron and Ohio. He is said to be the youngest player in Michigan history to be offered a full scholarship to an FBS program. A rising freshman, Johnson will likely be Southfield's starter quarterback this fall.

*Dwan Mathis - QB - Belleville (MI) Belleville: Mathis is a 6'3", 185 lb. prospect with offers from Akron and Cincinnati.

Jacardia Wright - RB - Decatur (IL) St. Theresa's:

  2. "Leach is a 6'8", 220 lb. prospect with no offers at this time."

    1. Yeah, if he gets any taller, he might outgrow football altogether. Or he might have to try to play tackle.

  3. Impressive group of QBs. Otherwise, this list is helpful in understanding why M needs to run satellite camps. There was a time when the UM camp was a pretty prestigious regional event - now, presumably because of the proliferation of shoe company and recruiting industry camps - it seems to be less of a deal. Maybe it's just the media coverage has changed...

    Is Nathan Skene Doug's son?

    Isn't Peoples-Jones related (nephew of?) former UM player Shonte Peoples?

    I thought I read that

    1. I don't know the exact reason, but I imagine the satellite camps have something to do with the level of players who are coming, too. Players have traveled in the past from a long way away, and they still are (there are kids from Maryland, Georgia, etc.), but not in the same kinds of numbers. I think some of the kids who went to the Indiana satellite camp probably don't see a need to come up to Ann Arbor, and the same might be said for the camps in Florida and Texas.

      Nathan Skene is Doug's son, yes.

      I'm not sure of the relationship between Peoples-Jones and Shonte Peoples. I read that they were father and son, but that idea has been shot down since.

  4. Baily Edwards does some nice stuff. He finds the ball in the air, can definitely catch it over his shoulder, reach for it and pull it out of bad spots, he has the "can go up and get it thing" that made his brother a star.

    Drama is always a possibility if not a probability when it comes to the Edwards family, but I think he can play.

  5. From the following interview of Shonte Peoples, which is pretty interesting, particularly if you are inclined to hold a grudge against Lloyd.

    http://www.mlive.com/sports/saginaw/index.ssf/2012/05/former_u-m_standout_shonte_peo.html

    If he has a daughter with the surname Jones? To quote the great Tom Harmon's son, Jethro Gibbs, "There is no such thing as coincidence."
