Michigan Lands in Top List for No. 1 Player in PA

Earlier in the week, 2017 four-star all-purpose back D'Andre Swift (PA) has listed the Wolverines in his top ten. Also included in his list were Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Maryland, Miami, Ohio State, Penn State, and South Carolina.

Swift is the No. 1 player in his home state of Pennsylvania and is also the top-ranked APB in the 2017 cycle. The 247 Crystal Ball is currently in favor of Penn State landing Swift. Michigan already has three RBs committed to the 2017 class, though with the versatility of Swift, the coaching staff may create room for him.

2017 4* ATH Includes Michigan in Top 10

Per the athlete's Twitter page earlier in the week, 2017 four-star ATH Deejay Dallas (GA) has listed Michigan in his top ten. Take a look at the tweet, including the other schools that cracked the list:

Dallas plays at the quarterback position for his high school, but appears to be open to other positions such as running back or wide receiver. He is the 14th-ranked ATH in the class and 25th in the state of Georgia.

Elite 2018 WR High on Michigan

Although it is still very early on in his recruitment, 2018 four-star wide receiver Jalen Hall (CA) is very high on the Wolverines following a visit to Ann Arbor this past weekend. Per Brandon Brown of Rivals ($), Hall most enjoyed his conversations with Coach Harbaugh, mainly the fact that he knows what it takes to compete at the next level. To read more about what Hall said regarding the Wolverines, you will need a subscription to Rivals.

Hall is certainly a top target for Harbaugh and the coaching staff. He is the top-ranked receiver in his class at the moment, per the 247Composite. Have a look at his sophomore season highlights here:

RB Commit A.J. Dillon Runs 11.3 100M

Michigan may have found their newest offensive weapon, one who might just leave linebackers in the dust. Class of 2017 commit A.J. Dillon ran a 11.3-second 100M during a high school track meet recently. Have a look at the video here.

Dillon is a three-star running back in his cycle. He is ranked as the top overall player in Massachusetts and the 26th-overall RB in 2017.
