The Michigan Wolverines offered two high school prospects this past week.
2019 QB Michael Johnson Jr.
The 6-foot-3, 185-pound dual-threat quarterback from Eugene, Oregon will be towards the top of Michigan’s wish list in the 2019 class. However, the Wolverines will have a monumental task on their hands snatching Johnson Jr. out of the Ducks’ backyard.
Johnson Jr. is ranked as a four-star prospect, according to 247Sports, who has him as the No. 6 dual-threat quarterback in the class and the No. 251 player overall. Along with Michigan and Oregon, Johnson Jr. has offers from LSU, Ohio State, Arizona, California, Colorado State, Florida State, Georgia, Louisville, Mississippi State, North Carolina Texas, Texas A & M, Texas Tech, Florida, West Virginia and USC.
Johnson shows a lot of speed and a very strong arm.
2020 RB Len’Neth Whitehead
Whitehead, a 6-foot, 200-pound running back from from Athens, Georgia was the first player to be offered this week, however, Harbaugh faces another challenge of taking a player out of a team’s backyard.
