Recruiting Update: June 8, 2015

Winchester (IN) Winchester running back Kiante Enis committed to Michigan (LINK).

Indianapolis (IN) Ben Davis slot receiver Chris Evans committed to Michigan (LINK).

Prattville (AL) Prattville linebacker Dytarious Johnson committed to Michigan (LINK).

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech offensive guard Michael Onwenu committed to Michigan (LINK).

Miramar (FL) Miramar defensive end Terrell Lucas was offered by Michigan. He's a 6'3", 220 lb. prospect with offers from Minnesota and Tulane. He's a 247 Composite 3-star, the #67 weakside end, and #1152 overall. Lucas was at the satellite camp in Tampa, and the coaches extended him an offer after evaluating him in person. His film is not particularly impressive, as he looks a little undersized and lacks the explosion I would expect in an undersized weakside end.

Dudley (MA) Shepherd Hill tight end Sean McKeon was offered by Michigan. He's a 6'5", 230 lb. prospect with offers from Boston College, Connecticut, Syracuse, Temple, and UMass, among others. He's a 247 Composite 3-star, the #64 tight end, and #1489 overall. He claims a 4.69 forty. His highlights show a long, lanky kid who looks a little awkward and gangly, but he shows some toughness and an ability to grind out extra yards after the catch.

Hit the jump for a couple more 2016 offers, a couple 2017 offers, a new 2018 offer, some guys who committed elsewhere, and lots of random bits.

Pembroke Pines (FL) Flanagan safety Josh Metellus was offered by Michigan. He's a 6'0", 187 lb. prospect who is currently committed to Georgia Southern. He's a 247 Composite 2-star, the #134 safety, and #1915 overall. He claims a 33" vertical, a 245 lb. bench press, and a 325 lb. squat. Unless he has hit a growth spurt since his junior season, he's probably an inch or two under his listed height and weight, but he is an aggressive hitter from the safety position and shows some nice ball skills, too. He was at the satellite camp held just outside of Miami, FL. He is another teammate of 2016 offerees Devin Bush, Jr. and Devin Gil.

Delray Beach (FL) Atlantic cornerback Antwaine Richardson was offered by Michigan. He's a 6'0", 165 lb. prospect with offers from Miami, Rutgers, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, among others. He's a 247 Composite 3-star, the #86 cornerback, and #867 overall. As a junior in 2014, he made 35 tackles, 2 interceptions, 3 forced fumbles, and 10 pass breakups. Richardson is a lanky corner who needs to add weight, but he changes direction well and is pretty physical for being a skinny guy. He attends the same school as 2015 defensive end signee Shelton Johnson.

Tampa (FL) Tampa Bay Tech wide receiver Daquon Green was offered by Michigan. He's a 6'1", 183 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Ohio State, and several others. He's a 247 Sports 4-star, the #33 wide receiver, and #210 overall. Green was one of the stars of the show at the Tampa satellite camp. He's a speedster who can take the top off of a defense and run after the catch.

Pembroke Pines (FL) Flanagan wide receiver Clevan Thomas, Jr. was offered by Michigan. He's a 5'10", 185 lb. prospect whose lone other offer comes from Temple. Another teammate of Bush, Gil, and Metellus, Thomas earned his offer at the Miami satellite camp.  Thomas is the son of Clevan Thomas, a former Florida State cornerback (6 career interceptions) who went on to become a three-time Arena Football League Defensive Player of the Year and Hall of Famer (73 career interceptions, 11 kickoff return touchdowns). Flanagan is Thomas's third school after playing at Miami Jackson and Miami Booker T. Washington.

Thomson (GA) Thomson cornerback Christian Tutt was offered by Michigan. He's a 5'11", 171 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, South Carolina, and Tennessee, among others. Tutt is obviously a young kid, and his highlights are not very lengthy, but he does show some ability as a kick returner.

Hallandale (FL) Hallandale wide receiver Joshua Hammond committed to Florida. Hammond's older brother, Frankie Hammond Jr., played for the Gators and spent the last two seasons as a wide receiver with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Darien (IL) Hinsdale South defensive end Josh King committed to Michigan State. Prior to his commitment, he tweeted out that his choice would make people's heads spin. He seemingly forgot to check his 247 Sports profile page, which had 79% of predictions in favor of . . . Michigan State. Michigan, Notre Dame, and Ohio State were all tied for second place with 5% of the votes.

Fort Wayne (IN) Bishop Luers wide receiver Austin Mack committed to Ohio State. Michigan was his leader many moons ago, and he even visited again recently, but for a long time, he has been expected to be a Buckeye.

Fort Wayne (IN) Wayne defensive end Auston Robertson committed to Michigan State. Just like King and Mack, this had been expected for a long time. Robertson had also visited Michigan several times and recently put the Wolverines in his top three, replacing Ohio State, but any late addition to a top three means it's a long shot.

Farmington Hills (MI) Harrison defensive end Khalid Kareem has set an announcement date for June 24th. He took a visit to Michigan two weekends ago that reportedly had a big impact on him because of its focus on academics. Kareem was previously committed to Michigan State for a short time this spring, but new circumstances are pointing toward him choosing Michigan.

Saline (MI) Saline quarterback Joshua Jackson has set an announcement date for Thursday. Jackson does not hold an offer from the Wolverines, but he is the son of former running backs coach Fred Jackson and the brother of former wide receiver Jeremy Jackson. He has offers from Minnesota, Northwestern, Utah, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia, among others. He's a 247 Composite 3-star, the #14 dual-threat quarterback, and #411 overall. He is expected to be a Hokie by the end of the week.

I'm keeping a running tab on the coaching staff's 2015 Summer Swarm Tour (LINK).

Here's a list of the eight in-state 2017 prospects who visited Michigan last Tuesday (LINK).

Rivals updated their top 100 (LINK) and top 250 lists (LINK) for 2016.

Rivals also held their 5-star Challenge in Baltimore, where Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was the keynote speaker. Here's a list of Michigan offerees who participated (LINK).
