Justice-Fications: Breaking Down Michigan's Chances with its Remaining 2016 Targets

With so many players on the board with so few spots left, where does Michigan stand with some of its top guys?

LaVert Hill (Detroit, MI) [Defensive back]

LaVert Hill was thought to be a Michigan lock, but ever since the Army game, MSU has has been trending due to his high school Donnie Corley becoming a Spartan, along with a few other close friends.

But, with Hill's brother, Delano, and the fact he's been a Michigan target for a long time coming makes me stay with Michigan on this one.

Connor Murphy (Arizona) [Defensive End]

After Jim Harbaugh's sleepover prior to Murphy's official visit, I'm beginning to like Murphy to Michigan. More will develop in this one the rest of this week.

Pie Young (Florida) [Wide Receiver]

To put it simply, Young wants to go to Michigan. He's actively told people Michigan is his leader. Whether or not he's a take is the issue. With Nate Johnson presumably on his way, I have Young becoming a Wolverine.

Eddie McDoom (Florida) [Wide Receiver]

After getting the 'ol, "you can't take other visits" treatment, I like McDoom to Michigan. He named them his leader, and is donning Michigan gear all over social media. Even his girlfriend tweeted he needs to go to Michigan. I've got him as a lock.

Michael Dwumfour (DL), Jordan Fuller (ATH), Donald Stewart (WR), Rashan Gary (DL) [New Jersey]

With all of them, but Dwumfour visiting currently, I like them all to Michigan. DwumFour visited last week, and speaking with him myself, I see him as a Michigan commit.

The rest, I consider 100-percent to Michigan, excluding Fuller. He's been quiet and Ohio State is a huge factor, but if I had to pick somewhere, it's Michigan.

Quinn Nordin (Michigan) [Kicker]

After speaking with Quinn Nordin, I like him heading to USC. I think he's absolutely connected to new USC special teams coach John Baxter, formerly of Michigan. I considered him a lock, but after our conversation recently, I got the impression that the Trojans are more of a factor than we were previously thinking.

Chase Allen (Missouri) [Tight End]

I  believe Chase Allen is waiting on having a commitable offer. I believe his offer rests on Devin Asiasi's. I do not believe Asiasi will head to Michigan, therefore I see Michigan taking him. For now, I think they're just waiting it off.

Nick Eubanks (Florida) [Tight End]

I'm not sure about the situation enough yet, so I'll keep him elsewhere and not at Michigan.

Devin Asiasi/Boss Tagaloa (California) [ATH] [Defensive lineman]

I fully believe these two to end up together, but not at Michigan. I believe both of them will head to either USC or Washington. But, I believe they stay on the west coast, either way.

Jonathan Jones (Florida) [Linebacker]

What was once a lock for Michigan has now turned into the opposite. Michigan was supposed to visit Jones at his Florida home Sunday, but he told us due to 'bad weather' they postponed. It certainly seems like Notre Dame is the favorite here.

Victor Viramontes (California) [ATH]

While, Viramontes is a quarterback, it's been rumored Michigan wants him to play linebacker, due to their shortage at the position. Viramontes told me, "my heart is at quarterback, but if changing positions means playing in front of 110,000 at the big house, so be it."

Viramontes will decide on signing day, but I have him going to Utah to play quarterback.

Khaleke Hudson [ATH]

After speaking with Hudson, I believe he is will announce on NSD and commit to Michigan. He's trending high since his visit, and seems to love it. Hudson could be one of the silents getting ready for the signing of the stars.
