Class of 2017 Michigan commit Kurt Taylor told Maize n Brew that he will visit U-M on September 3rd as the Wolverines host Hawaii.

From Grayson High School, Taylor committed to Michigan on October 16, 2015 after being recruited by Tyrone Wheatley. He is ranked as the 829th overall player in the 2017 class, according to 247Sports.

Taylor has offers to play for Michigan, Miami (OH), Mississippi State, Cincinnati, Colorado State, Georgia Southern, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Mercer, Navy, North Carolina A&T, Rutgers, UAB, UNLV and Vanderbilt. He seems to be a lock to stay at Michigan.

The 5-foot-9, 200-pound running back mentioned that 2019 four-star linebacker Owen Pappoe, who also plays for Grayson, will not be attending the game.

Pappoe is a 6-foot-1, 200-pound phenomenon and is the No. 2 player in the 2019 class, according to 247Sports. He is the No. 1 outside linebacker and the top player from the state of Georgia.

In late June, Pappoe told Maize n Brew that he would be visiting Michigan with Taylor, but plans have obviously changed. The good news is that Pappoe is a 2019 athlete, so there is a lot of time for a future visit.

The four-star has offers to play for Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee, Boston College, Brigham Young, California, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Jacksonville State, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Massachusetts, Memphis, Miami (FL), Michigan, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, South Alabama, South Carolina, TCU, Texas-San Antonio, Tulane, UAB, Vanderbilt and West Virginia

Michigan does not have a 247Sports Crystal Ball vote, but are considered in the mix for Pappoe.
