All Offic. Football Visits: 4 For Ball State

Michigan continues to schedule official visits for game weekends! Right now there are four visitors planned for this weekend's Ball State game (U-M's last home game), 2 official and 2 unofficial. Here is GoBlueWolverine's list of all U-M official visitors, past and future, plus a few key unofficial visitors as well.

GoBlueWolverine note: it is amazing that Michigan will host almost all of its official visits during the season this year ... a 180 degree departure from past Wolverine recruiting practice -- but a great move for a great season! Stay tuned as the weekend approaches, changes are always in order.

November 4th Ball State Game

*NEW* --'s #13 CB, 4-star and Army All-American Michael Williams (5-10, 175, 4.45) from Ventura, Calif., St. Bonaventure. He also made an official visit to Notre Dame on Oct. 6. It's a U-M/ND race for him, and it's possible he could decide sooner rather than later.

*NEW* --'s #19 OL, 4-star OT Jaivorio Burkes (6-6, 310) from Phoeniz, Ariz, Moon Valley. His other scheduled official visit at this point: Nebraska on Nov. 24. Burkes is having an excellent senior season and may be underrated at this point.

*NEW* (unofficial visit) -- 3-star Pa. LB Kellen Harris (6-2, 205) from Sharon Pa. He also made an unofficial visit for the NW game. He has offers from West Virginia (current leader) and Indiana, plus several MAC schools. We'll see if a U-M offer is in the offing. Older brother Kevin Harris played for the University of Pittsburgh.

*NEW* #27's #27 LB, 3-star WILL LB Jermale Hines (6-2, 210, 4.59) from Cleveland Glenville. He plans an unofficial U-M visit for the Ball State game Nov. 4. He attended U-M's end of July Junior Day. He has a top three of OSU (no offer ... if they do will he commit?), U-M (offer) and West Virginia (offer). He also has offers from Wisconsin, Purdue and others.
