The Future Huddle- Upcoming Visitors and a New Offer

Who’s going to be on campus this weekend? Who will Michigan turn to now after missing out on Jake Fruhmorgen? Do we finally have a Quarterback yet?! Find out in this Fridays version of The Future Huddle.

2015 4 Star Linebacker Joshua McMillon will visit Ann Arbor this weekend. McMillon was offered a scholarship in January and will now make his first visit. Prying Joshua from SEC country seems like a big hill to climb, but having him visit can only be considered as a good thing. Joshua will be heading up to Michigan on Friday afternoon and will stay the night and the following day/night. Sunday he will head south to Columbus for a visit.  Getting McMillon to “go blue” seems like a hard task to begin with but, with a quality visit/tour, anything can happen.

Michigan lands a Quarterback- but not by scholarship. Joey Hewlett will be a walking on next year for the Wolverines.  The Northville High product is by no means a “pocket passer”; as he gains most of his yards by scrambling. Hewlett doesn’t possess the strongest and most accurate arm I’ve ever seen but still can make quality throws while on the run and get the ball to the receiver.  Hewlett should be just a depth player in the long run, but you can’t be too disappointed when a QB decides to walk on at a time when Michigan needs one the most. However, this doesn’t mean Michigan won’t take a QB for the 2015 cycle.  Brian Lewerke and Alex Malzone should be getting offers extended their way after Michigan staff watch them through in person this upcoming spring.

Senior Stats: 117 for 187 Passing 1940 Yards, 20 TDS- Passing
                          157 Carries for 1120 yards and 14 TDS- Rushing

Michigan misses out on a big time offensive tackle. As expected, Jake Fruhmorgen committed to Clemson yesterday afternoon at his high school in Tampa, Florida.  Fruhmorgen is a 4 star prospect who had multiple scholarship offers from across the country. Michigan had a late start with his recruitment and eventually, Clemson was too much to overtake.  Clemson now boasts two of the top 10 offensive tackles for the 2015 recruiting cycle which as a Michigan fan makes me extremely jealous, considering what our o-line looked like last year. With a scholarship now available to offer, who will get offered? Another offensive lineman would have made sense….. Not so fast

Late Thursday night, Michigan offered 2015 Safety Kahlil Haughton a scholarship. Haughton is rated as the #41 safety and #636 overall player in the 24/7 composite rankings. The Waco native boasts a pretty impressive scholarship offer list from over 15 different schools.  Baylor should be his outright leader at this point.  Being 6’2 and 175 pounds Haughton will probably only has to add on a few pounds to get acclimated to the college game. Steve Lorenz from Wolverines24/7 caught up with Kahlil last night and had this to say (subscription required) about the program:

"Their fan base is amazing and is something that stands out. Playing in front of more than 110,000 people every home game is something that would be a lot of fun, so I definitely plan on looking into a visit to see what Michigan has to offer me."
            Look for the coaching staff to get him on campus as soon as possible.  

Kahlil’s Hudl highlights can be seen below.

4 star Wide Receiver Juval Mollette recently released his top 5 in the middle of March.

Mollette is very quick on the outside and can play against just about any defensive back. He has adequate speed and route running abilities, but where he really shines is in one-on-one coverage. Mollette has excellent hands and can come down with any jump ball that’s thrown his way. The 6’4 185 pounder is rated as the 39th overall wide receiver and 290th overall nationally according to 24/7’s composite rankings.  Michigan offered him shortly after the George Campbell fiasco in January. I can only salivate at the thought of what this guy could do in the red zone opposite of someone who plays like Devin Funchess.

Juval recently spoke with CarolinaBlue's Ross Martin and had this to say about his list.
"Carolina and Clemson. Those are my two favorites. Carolina has been recruiting me real hard from day one. I get to visit them a lot more than anyone else because they are not that far from my house."
