Recruiting Visitors List: Everyone and Their (little) Brother Will Be in Ann Arbor Saturday

New, 1 comment

"Who's visiting Ann Arbor this weekend?" is not quite as accurate as asking "Who's NOT going to be at the Big House on Saturday?"

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The Big House will be packed to the brim on Saturday in Ann Arbor as every man, woman, and child in the mitten state watch the very anticipated matchup between No. 12 Michigan and No. 7 Michigan State.

Saying that there will be a "significant" number of recruits at this game would be an immense understatement. Currently, recruits from the 2016, 2017, 2018, and even the 2019 classes are slated to be in attendance to take in the battle for the Paul Bunyan trophy.

There are two five-star prospects on this list in 2016 TE Isaac Nauta and 2017 WR Donovan Peoples-Jones. Nauta has liked what he has seen thus far from the Wolverines in 2015, stating the following to the Detroit Free Press,

"Michigan has also been recruiting me really hard and they use their tight ends," Nauta said. "Jake Butt had like nine catches (against Utah). That's what I like to see, and I just want to see them put together a good season."

The Wolverines have just one commit at the tight end position for the 2016 class in two-star athlete Sean McKeon. Certainly landing Nauta is high on the coaching staff's to-do list.

The other five-star recruit who will be in attendance at this game is Peoples-Jones, who hails from football powerhouse Detroit Cass Tech. Nicknamed ‘The Freak,' and rightly so from his teammates, he is ranked as the No. 2 receiver in his class according to the 247 Composite. He currently holds offers from several schools other than Michigan, including Michigan State, Ohio State, and Alabama, among others.

A decision is not expected to be made soon, however, as the junior still has plenty of time to choose a suitor.

As always, this list is expected to change as we inch closer to kickoff at 3:30pm on Saturday.
