Wolverines to Host Several Top Targets at Spring Game

According to Steve Lorenz of Wolverine247 ($), Michigan is slated to host several top targets at the spring game on April 1. Among those scheduled to be in attendance are 2017 four-star center and IMG Academy product Cesar Ruiz (FL) and four-star center Brett Neilon (CA). Ruiz is the top-ranked C in his class and Neilon is just behind him at number two.

Along with these two athletes, 2017 four-star offensive guard Robert Hainsey, also from the IMG Academy in Florida, has also been confirmed to visit for the game. Hainsey is the third-ranked guard in the 2017 class.

Per Lorenz, 2018 four-star offensive guard Marquan McCall (MI) is also set to visit for the spring game in April. McCall is one of the Wolverines' top targets and according to the 247Composite, he is the number one prospect from Michigan in his class. Michigan appears to be the early favorite to land McCall.
