2019 Defensive Tackle Mazi Smith
Smith, Brown’s teammate at East Kentwood, is ranked as the No. 5 player in the state and the No. 162 player in the 2019 class. The 6-foot-3, 290-pound defensive tackle excels at getting in the backfield and blowing up plays with his size and speed. Smith currently has 15 scholarship offers and is favoring Michigan State and Notre Dame, per 247Sports. Michigan landed the top six players in the state in the 2017 class, so expect the Wolverines to make some head-way on the top defensive lineman.
Take a look at Smith’s highlights:
2019 Wide Receiver Kyle Ford
Ford, a five-star wide receiver from Anaheim, California, will be the hardest pull of this group, due to his proximity and reported interest in USC. Ford is ranked as the No. 3 wide receiver in the class and the No. 27 player overall, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound prospect is long, fast and catches everything. Michigan already has a few guys on its roster that fit the same mold, but you can never have too many game changers.
Below are Ford’s highlights:
2020 Outside Linebacker Courtney Holmes
If you’re a 2020 kid getting an offer, you’re really good. That is the case with Florida’s Courtney Holmes, who reminds me a lot of current 2018 commit Otis Reese - part cornerback, part linebacker, pure size and speed. Freshmen are not supposed to be able to do this:
2020 Cornerback Dwight McGlothern
Name of the year candidate for sure. McGlothern is a 6’1” corner from Texas, and he has offers from Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, and LSU. He also brings plenty of speed and size, and he’ll have many summers of camps to work on improving his footwork.
