KLS looks ready for Michigan visit next weekend

Regardless of Michigan's start to the 2014 season, next weekend will be the Wolverines' biggest recruiting spectacle of the year when they take on Penn State under the lights of the Big House.

Most of their official visits will take place that day, headlined by the highest-profile recruit still on the board for them.

Five-star linebacker/defensive end Keisean Lucier-South (Orange, California) will be in attendance next weekend. This is a huge visit for him because it will be the first time the West coast product gets to see the campus and the atmosphere of the University of Michigan.

Lucier-South has some of the biggest colleges in the nation recruiting him, but he has still kept the struggling Wolverines in the mix because he has always been a fan of the school.

He took to Twitter this week to let Michigan fans know he is ready for the visit.

I do like Michigan's chances with him regardless of the coaching staff uncertainties. They have been a school he has followed for quite some time and I do not see him being scared off because of a potential coaching change. With that being said, it will be tough to pull him from out west. UCLA and USC are two schools to look at there. Oklahoma has also launched themselves into the mix.

Daelin Hayes enrolls at elite Detroit high school football program

Last week, it was revealed that four-star 2016 linebacker Daelin Hayes (West Bloomfield, Michigan), who moved out to California this summer with his mother and is committed to USC, would be moving back to Michigan due to a custody battle between his parents.

Well now he has enrolled at a high school: Detroit Cass Tech.

Cass Tech is a powerhouse high school football program in the state of Michigan that has produced a plethora of talented players throughout the years, so in that regard, he is a perfect fit.

It will be interesting to see how the remainder of his recruitment plays out and if he sticks with USC. He is still receiving a fair amount of interest from other schools all around the country.

With the news that he is moving back to Michigan, Rivals.com has re-inserted him as the top in-state prospect for the 2016 class. With defensive tackle Michael Onwenu and defensive back Lavert Hill respectively, Cass Tech now has the top three players in the state for this cycle.

Hayes played briefly at St. Bonaventure HS in Ventura, California briefly this season before moving back to Michigan. He will be ineligible to play the rest of this year and will join the team next season.

His junior year highlights can be found below:

Offers continue to fly in for Matt Falcon

Matt Falcon (Southfield, Michigan), a 2016 running back prospect, has seen his recruitment pick up significantly since he began his junior season. He is out to a huge start to this year after missing 2013 with a knee injury and has proved that he has put that behind him.

Falcon's hard work continues to pay off, as he received a scholarship offer from Vanderbilt, according to his Twitter account.

He has garnered a ton of interest from Midwestern programs this year, and it looks like he will be visiting one this weekend.

According to Steve Wiltfong of 247 Sports, Falcon will visit Northwestern this weekend for their clash against the Wisconsin Badgers. (FREE)

He has not yet been offered by the Wildcats, but it is possible one could come this weekend.

Chris Clark receives Under Armour All-American jersey

Chris Clark (Avon, Connecticut), the top tight end in the 2015 class and a Michigan commit, was presented with an honorary jersey as he officially accepted his big to the 2015 Under Armour All-American game.

Clark has been one of the players that has been speculated to be looking around in the wake of Michigan's slow start to the year. I think they have enough going in their favor, but he did state earlier this week that if coach Hoke was to go, that would change everything.

That's it for Friday. Enjoy your weekend and be back Monday for the latest in Michigan football recruiting.
