Metro Detroit Recruit "Loves" Michigan

A headline that seems to be a redundancy whenever recruiting websites interview prospects following their visits to Michigan. You'll never hear a recruit lashing out on what Michigan has to offer, considering that coach Jim Harbaugh has the ability to wow any high schooler with his personality and charisma.

Allen Stritzinger is the latest to fall under Harbaugh's spell. The three-star junior running back and cornerback from Warren De La Salle spoke with The Wolverine ($) about his experience at the Big House BBQ earlier this month, saying that he gets a great vibe whenever he's on campus.

The 6-foot-0, 180 pounder has five offers, along with Michigan, includes Cincinnati, Toledo, Western Michigan and Miami (OH). Stritzinger should expect to receive more offers once he's firm on which side of the ball he'll play on after his senior season.

Donnie Corley & LaVert Hill A Package Deal?

Hill is a Penn State pledge, but for him to flip his verbal commitment from Happy Valley to Michigan is more probable than the Wolverine beat writers being granted access to Harbaugh and the players before Sept. 3.

The crystal ball predictions have Michigan chances of landing Hill at 73%, followed by Michigan State (23%) and the Nittany Lions (4%). The Detroit King cornerback has reiterated that he's fully committed to PSU, but it's only a matter of time until his signs his letter of intent with another Big Ten school.

Donnie Corley, a teammate of Hill and one of the top prospects in the state of Michigan, has told Scout.com that the pair want to spend their collegiate careers at the same program. Corley has expressed interest in both Georgia, Michigan State and Tennessee, but is also high on Michigan.

Tate Martell Commits To Texas A&M

Michigan was among the five schools that Martell was considering before announcing his verbal commitment to the Aggies on Thursday. Alabama, Southern Cal and Washington were the remaining finalists.

The No. 12 ranked prospect in the 2017 class and reigning sophomore player of the year from Las Vegas Bishop Gorman wasn't planning on committing this early in the process, but told 247Sports that College Station felt like home.

That likely leaves Michigan out of the running for 2017 wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey, a teammate of Martell, who said that playing with his quarterback at the next level would be a dream. Even though Michigan has yet to offer the five-star receiver, it would be a tough blow to lose out on two highly touted juniors.
