Michigan hosts 2017 prospects on Sunday
Michigan football brought in a group of 2017 prospects Sunday afternoon for the basketball game against Ohio State.
A few of the notables in town were linebacker Josh Ross, brother of current U-M football player James Ross III, defensive tackle Bryce Brand and quarterback Rodney Hall from Cass Tech. Defensive end Corey Malone-Hatcher was originally scheduled to visit Sunday, but will now visit Friday instead.

Maize n Brew spoke to Hall briefly following the visit, which he said went well and that he enjoyed himself at Michigan. He did not have much contact with the coaches outside of introducing himself to Jim Harbaugh for the first time.

Of this group, Malone-Hatcher and Ross seem like they are destined to end up a part of the 2017 class, even with that being just under two years away from being official. We'll see what happens, though.
Offers continue to roll out over the weekend
The Wolverines continue to send out offers in full force in an attempt to cover their bases nationwide and set up a board for their priorities in the 2016 class. They have been busy on the trail in recent weeks leading up to the beginning of spring football practice on Tuesday.
On Friday, Michigan offered offensive tackle Jonah Williams out of Folsom, California. Williams is a four-star prospect and the 11th ranked offensive tackle in the class, per the 247 Composite.

Athlete Spencer Perry (Auburn, Alabama) was also extended an offer from the Wolverines over the weekend. He is a three-star prospect and Michigan is his third scholarship offer.
Defensive end Bryson Young and wide receiver Charlie Woerner picked up offers from Michigan, as well.
Austin Mack to visit March 7th
2016 wide receiver Austin Mack (Fort Wayne, Indiana) will be visiting Michigan on March 7 for a spring practice, according to Wolverine247's Steve Lorenz.
Mack's last trip to Ann Arbor came for the Under the Lights III game against Penn State on Oct. 11. He seems to have trended away from Michigan since then, but we'll see if the visit with the new staff gets them back into the mix. He is widely considered one of the Midwest's top receiver prospects.
Mack is a four-star prospect and the 24th ranked receiver in the 2016 class, per the 247 Composite.
