A weekly newsletter on top prospects and recruits interested in Michigan.

Welcome to GoBlueWolverine's News and Notes on everything Michigan football recruiting. This is a weekly update on U-M recruits and commits.

Hinsdale South (Ill.) 2014 TE, Ian Bunting—Bunting wasn't in action in last weekend's IMG Regional due to a hamstring injury. He says it is nothing serious and shouldn't be a worry going forward. He seems solid with his Michigan commitment and is very happy with his decision. He also noted that he will start recruiting Nyles Morgan to join him in Ann Arbor.

Crete-Monee (Ill.) 2014 LB, Nyles Morgan—Morgan is hearing from pretty much every top school in the country. He said Alabama, Florida, and Oregon have all stopped by in the past week. He said Michigan has been showing more interest as of late. He said he would like to talk with defensive coordinator Greg Mattison some more. He's not sure whether he can get on campus for the BBQ this July, but would like to com for a visit. If he does visit, he said he wants to see the campus and what it has to offer socially. It was sort of slow the last time he was in town. He said he has no favorites. He said he wouldn't mind coming for a game this fall. He probably will make a signing day decision.

Chicago Gordon Tech (Ill.) 2015 DE, Reaquan Williams—Williams is a monster in person at 6-foot-4.5, 274-pounds. Currently, he no offers but is hearing from Michigan, Iowa and Michigan State. He is a soft spoken kid and says he just want to play football at the next level. He currently doesn't have any favorites. He says he is open to camping in Ann Arbor but has not set date as of yet. He would like to make a decision by the end of his junior season.

Benet Academy (Ill.) 2015 QB, Jack Beneventi—Beneventi is interested in Michigan. He says Tom Brady is his favorite player and likes the new pro-style offense. He has five offers with Notre Dame and Illinois being his top two. He seems to be a priority for the Irish and it might be an uphill battle for his services with ND. He says if the Wolverines' keep showing interest then he would like to make a trip to Michigan's campus for a visit. Two major factors in his decision are the coaching and academics.

De Kalb (Ill.) High 2015 RB, Dre Brown—Brown has offers from Illinois and Northern Illinois. He says he would like to go on a visit to U-M.

He says he's grown up a U-M fan and so did his dad, who played at Indiana for coach Curt Mallory's father. He feels he is "destined to go to Michigan" and talked about coming up for the BBQ in July. He says he would to connect with the coaching staff on his visit. He says academics is his No. 1 subject when looking at schools.

Downers Grove (Ill.) South 2016 OL, Erik Swenson—This kid absolutely loves Michigan. He says Michigan is his "dream school" and is planning on camping next month.
