Recruiting Update

As we inch closer and closer to signing day, just over 7 days from now, Michigan narrows its sights on a list of recruits.

Atop the list right now are high school teamates Denard Robinson and Adrian Witty. Robinson is a 4-star QB from Deerfield Beach, FL. He's expected to announce probably on signing day that he's heading to Michigan. Hopefully, along with him will be his teamate Witty. He's only a 2-star CB, but both have made it clear that they'd like to attend the same school. And so far only Kansas State and Michigan have offered both, although Robinson has an offer from Florida. They took their official visit to Ann Arbor together on Jan. 9th.

According to Rivals, Michigan's coaches visited the home of Pennsylvania WR Ja'Ron Stokes this evening. He's listed as a 4-star WR and the #14 player at that position. He's only 6-1, 178, but he can run the 40 in 4.4. He's currently listed as verbally committed to the Vols, but it seems as if he's been wavering lately (he's not visited Tennessee since Fulmer left)...hence inviting the Michigan staff into his home tonight.

Michigan currently has two great DT commits in DaQuinta Jones and Pearlie Graves (as well as new Michigan freshman 5-star DT William Campbell). But lately both have been considered to be on the fence. Maybe this has something to do with the last second Campbell re-commit right before the spring semester. Maybe not. Maybe it's all speculation and hearsay? Graves has been to both Tennessee and Oklahoma this month for official visits. Yet, he's still commited, although Oklahoma is looking like a more likely option. Jones has offers from about every team in the south. And he's visited both Auburn and Arkansas in recent weeks, yet he still remains a soft verbal for the Wolverines. He took an official to Ann Arbor just this past weekend where he again verbally commited saying he expects to sign with Michigan next week. We'll see.

Michigan needs at least one more QB and one more WR to add to this class. Should things fall through with Robinson, Michigan now has the interest of FL QB Austin Dantin. Not much out there about this prospect right now. WR prospects LA WR Travante Stallworth and GA WR Terrell Mitchell are both on the Michigan radar.

Stallworth is probably the more likely of the two. Mitchell took his official visit to AA this past weekend, but is still very high on Kentucky. Stallworth is barely committed to Auburn. He's been there 3 times so far, but said that he's still keeping an eye on other schools. He came to AA on Jan. 9th.

Maybe one of the most important positions for Michigan to be looking at right now is offensive line.  SC OL Quinton Washington just welcomed Rich Rodriguez into his home recently for an in-home visit. He's a verbal commit for Clemson right now, but obviously still looking around. He's been busy visiting schools like Tennessee, South Carolina and Clemson this month. He's also set to visit Miami this weekend. Hopefully the 6-3, 305 lb. recruit with fit the M cap onto his head come signing day.

Keep an eye on our recruit list on the middle sidebar --->, and obviously we'll keep you up to date with all the latest news if it breaks. This late in the game though, verbal commits are probably few and far between. Signing day will be fast and furious. Michigan had 4 commits decide to play for Michigan last year on signing day, and 4 more within a week of. It probably won't be as crazy this year, but who knows.
