Weber looking to enroll early?

We are just a few short months away from when 2015 prospects can officially enroll early at the University of Michigan and be eligible for spring practices and it looks like one of the Wolverine's biggest gets in this cycle is looking to join the program as soon as possible.

Running back commit Mike Weber (Detroit, Michigan) took to Twitter on Tuesday night to reveal that the possibility exists that he will be one of Michigan's early enrollees.

If Weber decided to enroll early, he would be joining the likes of Alex Malzone, Chris Clark, Darrin Kirkland Jr., Brian Cole and Darian Roseboro as guys who have expressed interested in enrolling early with the program.

Weber is a four-star prospect and the 13th ranked running back in the class of 2015, according to the 247 Composite rankings. He is the second ranked player in the state of Michigan.

Michigan leads for Marcus Lewis, but no decision is imminent

Four-star cornerback Marcus Lewis (Washington, DC) made the decision to decommit from Florida this summer and has spent a lot of time building relationships with the Michigan coaching staff and other commits, which has put the Wolverines in the driver's seat for his services.

Michigan is his leader right now, but he has not set any official visits yet and it appears that he will be waiting out the process until National Signing Day, according to 247's Ryan Bartow. ($)

Lewis' tentative visit plans can be found in the above article, where he does state Michigan will get an official from him. Oregon and Miami are the two teams behind the Wolverines that are expected to get visits, as well.

Malzone, Perry and Dunaway to visit this weekend

A trio of Birmingham Brother Rice HS (Michigan) players will visit Michigan this weekend for their game against Miami (Ohio). Quarterback commit Alex Malzone, wide receiver Grant Perry and defensive end Jack Dunaway will all be in Ann Arbor this weekend, according to 247's Steve Lorenz. (FREE)

This visit looks to be especially big for Perry, a three-star prospect, who has been working very hard to receive a scholarship offer from the Wolverines. He had a strong showing at the Sound Mind Sound Body camp in Detroit and camped at Michigan over the summer. He has not been on campus since the BBQ back in July.

Perry's offer sheet consists of mostly MAC schools for right now, but he does have interest from other schools in the Big Ten, which should only continue to pick up if he keeps putting up strong numbers this season.

Lorenz also is reporting that Dunaway is likely to end up as a preferred walk-on for the Wolverines next season.

In-state linebacker Rogers invited to visit Saturday

Four-star 2016 linebacker Eric Rogers (Warren, Michigan) told Steve Lorenz yesterday that the Michigan coaching staff has invited him to visit this weekend, as well. Rogers is expected to be in attendance at the game.

His recruitment has yet to really heat up, as he hasn't received any offers yet, but both Michigan and Michigan State have shown interest. He is the seventh ranked inside linebacker in the 2016 class, so it is just a matter of time before the offers roll in.

That's it for Wednesday. Check back in with us on Friday for the latest in Michigan football recruiting news and more.
