The home of Ath. Devon Lyons (Jan. 9 official visit, PSU Nike stats: 6-2 1/2, 204 lbs., 4.47 in the 40, 4.12 shuttle, 30.7 in. vertical, 18 bench press reps., ) from Pittsburgh, Pa., Woodland Hills has confirmed to us that Devon called and scheduled a visit for this weekend -- and is in Ann Arbor now.
Woodland Hills is the alma mater of Steve Breaston and Ryan Mundy, and the Mundys had told us several times about Lyons. Michigan is Devon's 5th and final official visit -- he has already made four official visits already to top schools (all of which have reportedly offered him): Notre Dame in Sept., MSU in Oct, Miami Dec. 5, OSU Dec. 12.
As a senior Lyons made 47 tackles and four interceptions; on offense as a receiver he made 23 receptions for 790 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Lyons is TheInsiders' #43 Big Ten Area prospect.
Other visitors the weekend:
1. - LB Johnny Thompson (Jan. 9 Michigan official visit, 2003 U-M Camper, 6-3, 210 lbs.) from Detroit Crockett. John has leaning to Michigan since he talked to us in December, and he may very likely commit at the visit -- in fact, it's possible that he is already committed but just hasn't talked to reporters about it yet!
Other official visits: Wisconsin Dec. 5, possibly OSU.
U-M unofficial visits: OSU and Notre Dame games.
2. - DE Tim Jamison (Jan. 9 Michigan official visit, 6-3, 225 lbs., 2.25 GPA, Dec. ACT) from Harvey, Ill, Thornton. For the season he reportedly recorded 100 tackles and 20 sacks, and he was one of the top three performers in the US Army All Star Game. Wisconsin leads going into his U-M visit, but his family likes Michigan a lot! He is vastly underrated as TheInsiders #99 Big Ten area prospect.
Other official visits: Wisconsin Dec. 5, MSU Jan. 16.
U-M unofficial visits: OSU game.
3. - Michigan commitment #10: OL Jeremy Ciulla (Jan. 9 official visit postponed to Jan. 5, 6-5 1/2, 279 lbs., 5.0 in the 40, 325 lb. bench press, 3.6 GPA/1100 SAT) from Kennesaw Mountain, Ga. He is TheInsiders' #61 prospect.
