Mike Weber taking all of his official visits

Four-star 2015 running back commit Mike Weber (Detroit, Michigan) revealed over the weekend that he is going to take official visits to other schools soon, much like several of his fellow commits are.

Weber plans on visiting Miami (FL), Michigan State, Ohio State and USC, according to The Wolverines' Branden Hunter and later confirmed by ESPN's Tom VanHaaren

Michigan still seems to have a decent shot at retaining him, but the fact he is going to take official visits to other schools does not help them much at all.

MSU and OSU appear to be the biggest threats as of now. The rivals were both very high on his list when he committed and both coaches will likely use Michigan's struggles against him on the recruiting trail.

Dele Harding commits to Michigan

Dele Harding (Elkton, Maryland), a 2016 linebacker prospect, announced on Friday that he has committed to the University of Michigan, according to his Twitter account.

Harding has been Michigan's top target thus far at linebacker in the 2016 cycle and a commitment from him seemed inevitable since his offer came from the Wolverines back in June.

Harding, at 6-1, 232 pounds, is a three-star prospect and the 12th ranked inside linebacker in the class of 2016, according to 247 Sports' Composite Rankings.

He earned his offer from the Wolverines this summer at the Sound Mind Sound Body camp in Harper Woods, Michigan, where he by had a very good showing in front of some of the best college coaches in the country.

Harding is a student at Eastern Christian Academy in Elkton, which may sound familiar as it is the school that 2014 prospects Freddy Canteen and Brandon Watson, now true freshman at Michigan, came from. It seems that connection has paid off for the Wolverines in bringing him in.

He is the third committment of the 2016 class, joining a pair of four-stars quarterback Messiah deWeaver and offensive lineman Erik Swenson.

Khalid Kareem offered by Duke

Four-star defensive end Khalid Kareem (Farmington Hills, Michigan) was offered by the Duke Blue Devils this weekend, according to Steve Wiltfong of 247 Sports.

Kareem is a rising in-state 2016 prospect and the offer from Duke is his third, joining Northwestern and Bowling Green. He has had several schools reach out to him though, including the Wolverines.

He has the look of a player who's offer sheet will grow exponentially in the coming months It is still a bit early in the process as he is still finishing up his junior year, but he should be one of the more coveted players in the Midwest before too long.

Craig Yeast visits for Indiana game

Michigan received an unofficial visit on Saturday from a player that went to the same high school as Charles Woodson in 2017 athlete Craig Yeast (Fremont, Ohio).

Yeast is not currently rated by any of the major recruiting services, but he has received interest from schools like Kentucky, Cincinnati, Florida State and Michigan.
