Michigan's #1 Recruiter: Corey Malone-Hatcher?

The Wolverines top recruiter for the incoming class may very well be a player and not a member of the coaching staff. Say what?

Michigan commit Corey Malone-Hatcher has been pushing for 2017 four-star wide receiver Tarik Black (CT) to commit to the Wolverines. Black is one of Michigan's top targets. On Tuesday, Hatcher debuted a highlight reel of Black as well as the hashtag #TBtoAA, which has been retweeted by several current Michigan players as well as commits.

Black is the top-ranked player in Connecticut. Since July, Hatcher has been trying to recruit Cass Tech safety Jaylen Kelly-Powell as well, with a pinned tweet on his profile.

Michigan Commit Kurt Taylor to Take Official This Weekend

According to his Twitter page on Monday, Michigan commit Kurt Taylor will take his official visit to Ann Arbor this weekend for the game against Penn State. The 247Composite lists Taylor as a three-star running back recruit from Georgia.
