Notable Missing Names:

Matt Falcon, Running Back

Falcon will no longer have football as an option if he chooses to go to Michigan. Even with the possible medical scholarship, he is gone from this class.

Kareem Walker, Running Back

There are quite a few rumors flying around here. We keep hearing that Michigan is in a good spot to flip his commitment from Ohio State, but he has reaffirmed a few times recently. If he does leave OSU's class, Michigan would be a logical fit.

Dylan Crawford, Wide Receiver

He likes Michigan a lot, but it is still going to be tough to pull him from the West coast, especially after landing an offer from Oregon, which he has been waiting on.

Isaac Nauta, Tight End

The nation's top tight end had a great visit to Michigan last weekend that has them trending upward, but it is still a wide open recruitment. The Wolverines are the best fit, so we'll see where his recruitment goes from here.

Terrance Davis, Offensive Guard

What once was considered a lock is no more. Florida is trending big time in his recruitment and if he doesn't drop soon, there may not be room for him. He will be in town for his official on Nov. 28 for the game against OSU, so if there's a time, it'll be then.

Lavert Hill, Defensive Back

This has been the ultimate "will he or won't he" in this cycle in terms of flipping from Penn State to Michigan. While Michigan makes sense and interest is mutual, I'm told there are a few obstacles to clear before a flip is to take place.
