Commits In Action
QB Shane Morris took to the field on Saturday, while Michigan was in action close by, against Fordson. Morris was able to toss a couple touchdowns, including one to his younger brother Brent, to lead De La Salle to a 40-19 victory.
'13 OL Logan Tully-Tillman and his team were defeated over the weekend. Tully-Tillman did impress even though his team suffered the loss. Josh Newkirk took in the game and shared his reaction:
Manual OT and Michigan commit @logantillman with a nice first half even though scoreboard doesn't show it. Manual trails 16-0 to Marshall'13 DL Maurice Hurst's team was able to pick up a victory. No stats were available. Still can't believe this guy plays running back. I'll never get over it. Never.

I was able to take in a small portion of LB Mike McCray's game against Wayne (OH) on Thursday night. First off, did anyone realize how big McCray is?! McCray is a legit 6'4 230. The crazy thing to me is that he has so much more room to add weight and strength to his frame. Kid will be a beast once he hits the UM weight program and may turn into your hybrid DE/LB type. The kid displayed speed and quickness in the loss to Wayne and MAN, can he hit. Excited about this kid after watching him live.
'14 OH LB Michael Ferns and St. Clairsville improved to 3-0 on the season. I wasn't able to find any stats for the game.
Prospects In Action
'13 IL WR LaQuon Treadwell and Crete Monee HS (IL) took the field on Friday. They were able to come away with a 35-2 victory. Look at what 4-star Safety and Georgia commit Shaq Wiggins said about Treadwell via twitter:
Hardest wr to cover this summer @successfulquon.Treadwell had originally planned on visiting this past Saturday, but a scheduling conflict with taking the ACT prevented that from happening. Smart decision young man! No news on the score yet...don't worry, I'll do extensive work to find it out for you guys (getting the sarcasm yet).

'14 OH WR Derek Kief has been bursting onto the scene as of late and Michigan has been showing the 6'5" pass catcher some interest. Last week his La Salle Lancers won their game 35-21 over the Princeton Vikings. Kief posted 5 receptions for 82 yards and 1 TD.
'14 OH OL Nathaniel Devers was destroying people over the weekend. Not sure of the outcome of his game but check out the glory of this picture:
Remember last week when I gave you a few players to watch out for?! Well listen to what Marc Gilver compared one of them to:
Marshon Lattimore just took a punt to the house for Glenville, went from sideline to sideline TWICE. Was very tecmo superbowlishWas that a Tecmo Super Bowl video game reference?! Better believe it! I'm not sure if there is a better compliment out there ladies and gentlemen.

Visitors: Air Force Game
Lots of big prospects for the Wolverines were making the drive over to the Big House to take in an atmosphere like no other as Michigan took on Air Force. A few commits also joined the party. Figure some extra recruiting won't hurt right?! Check out the list:
-Both TE commit's Khalid Hill and Jake Butt who brought his teammate '14 LB/RB Dylan Wiegel
-WR C'sonte York
-LB Mike McCray
-'14 MI DE Kenneth Finley
-'14 OL Alex Bars - Offer
-'14 TE Chance Sorrell
-'14 OL Tommy Doles - Offer
- The Detroit Cass Tech crew made the trip after their Friday night domination of Renaissance winning 44-0. Among the group was:
|Dawson accepting his UA All-America jersey during his game: |
- DB commit Jourdan Lewis had a pick, a TD, a 2PT conversion in the win Friday.
- DB Damon Webb (offer) who had 3 pass deflections in the team's 44-0 victory.
- '15 QB Jayru Campbell who told 247Sports Clint Brewster that "I can see myself at Michigan." He had a TD
'13 K J.J. McGrath was also on the list of visitors who witnessed a Wolverine victory on Saturday. He posted this photo showing how persistent us Wolverine faithful are:
Tremendous was able to get list a of who is at the top along with a visit reaction from the talented and powerful place kicker:
Visit: "The fans. They recognized me and would come over to me telling me Michigan was the best and that I should definitely come there. There was a lot of dedication on their part. I had never been to a game and seeing the banner and the marching band. It was really cool. I didn't know what to expect at all and I'm really glad I made the visit."
I know your thinking, "A kicker?! Who cares!" This kid has a big, powerful foot. He's already converted a few 50 yarder's this season.Top group: "It's still Michigan, MSU, LSU and Alabama. I like all four schools, but the ones who step forward with scholarships will move to the top of my list. I think I've earned it, but we'll see what happens. If I had to guess, I think LSU and MSU are the most likely to make an offer."
'14 DE Connor Sheehy committed to Wisconsin. Sheehy was offered by UM following a visit to the BBQ. He joins QB Chance Stewart as Wisconsin has an impressive start to the '14 recruiting class.
