Recapping the week in Michigan football recruiting. A commit watch is on.

Recapping the week in Michigan football recruiting. A number of new offers, a commit watch, and more.

New Offers:

Warren (OH.) Harding 2017 athlete Lynn Bowden - The Buckeye state star told me he wanted to jump up in joy when he found out about the offer. Has very good amount of interest in Michigan and plans on visiting them in the future

Kennedale (Tex.) 2017 outside linebacker and Baylor commit Baron Browning - He told me that there is interest on his end with Michigan and has all love for Coach Jim Harbaugh, Coach Greg Mattison and Coach Chris Partridge.

Owings Mills (MD.) McDonogh 2018 offensive tackle P.J. Mustipher

Mobile (Ala.) St. Pauls Episcopal 2017 defensive end Ryan Johnson

El Cerrito (Calif.) 2017 offensive guard Aaron Banks

Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech 2017 offensive guard Jordan Reid

New Commits:

Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola senior cornerback David Long committed to Michigan over Washington, Stanford, USC and Notre Dame amongst many others. He also informed me that he is working on Detroit (Mich.) King senior cornerback Lavert Hill and Concord (Calif.) De La Salle senior tight end Devin Asiasi as well.

Baltimore (MD.) Gilman senior offensive tackle Stephen Spanellis flipped his commitment from Virginia to Michigan. He took an official visit to Ann Arbor this past weekend and left feeling torn on the decision, but ultimately decided his best fit was Michigan. He will also be joining his fellow friend and teammate up to Ann Arbor in this class with senior offensive tackle Devery Hamilton

One To Watch:

A name that might sound familiar is Country Day (Mich.) 2018 linebacker Kolin Kemens. The 6-2, 200-pounder is the younger brother of former Michigan and Arizona Cardinal linebacker Kenny Demens and earlier this week received his first offer from Nebraska. Demens told me that Michigan is a school he’s definitely interested in and loves the tradition there. He also said he grew up around a lot of the players when his brother went there and just loved it in Ann Arbor. He admitted that his dream school is Michigan.

He also added that if the Wolverines did offer him it would be "very huge."

Sleepover Success:

Phoenix (Ariz.) Brophy Prep senior defensive end Connor Murphy is one of the top remaining defensive prospects on the board for Michigan and earlier this week received an in-home visit from Wolverine headman Jim Harbaugh, which included a sleepover too. He informed me that it definitely helped Michigan’s shot at landing him and really showed him how much Harbaugh cares about his recruits and players. He is now currently on an official visit at Michigan.

Decision Loomings?

Nixa (MO.) senior tight end Chase Allen gave the latest on his recruitment to me. The 6-7, 225-pound’s upcoming schedule will be busy with an official visit to Nebraska this weekend, Iowa State on Monday, and then will have Jim and Jay Harbaugh at his basketball game on Tuesday. He still has the Wolverines as his leader and hopes to make a decision some time next week.

Fresh off of a decommitment from Oregon Winter Garden (Fla.) West Orange wide receiver Eddie McDoom is leaning toward becoming a Wolverine. He is on his official visit to Michigan this weekend amd all the is left is for Harbaugh & company to close the deal.

Said McDoom, “If I go there and love it, then I will commit. If I don’t, then I will weigh all my options."

"As of now, that is where I want to go.”
