Four-star 2017 targets looking to visit

Defensive backs on the roster for Michigan are both immediate needs and needs for down the road depth-wise. The Wolverines could be getting a visit from two of 2017's top defensive backs next weekend, according to Wolverine247. (FREE)

Athlete Jamyest Williams and safety Isaiah Pryor (Lawrenceville, Georgia) will be in Chicago next weekend for an Adidas camp and want to visit Michigan sometime while they are in the Midwest, they told Steve Lorenz.

Both players are four-star prospects. Williams held an offer from the old staff that was re-extended to him recently, while Pryor was the first 2017 player offered by Jim Harbaugh's staff. They are teammates with 2016 offensive lineman EJ Price, who has emerged recently as a pretty big target as well.

Kelly opens things up

Michigan recently offered four-star defensive end Xavier Kelly (Wichita, Kansas), who was committed to Kansas State when it was extended to him. Over the weekend, Kelly decided to open his recruitment back up and throw everyone back into the mix.

Kelly has become a big target for the Wolverines at that position. The timing of his decommitment is interesting, but he told Lorenz that he did not think he would visit this spring, so we'll see what direction his recruitment takes going forward.

Costello decision coming Thursday

Decision day rapidly approaches for 2016 quarterback KJ Costello (Santa Margarita, California). He revealed via his Twitter account that he will be making his college choice this Thursday.

The schools he will be choosing from are USC and Stanford at the top with Michigan in the rear-view mirror. It is possible he could surprise everyone and choose the Wolverines, but at this point it appears their inclusion in this decision may just be to have another hat on the table.

Pair of offers go out this weekend

Michigan got a visit from 2016 offensive lineman Jack Wohlabaugh (Stow, Ohio), where an unexpected offer was extended to him. (FREE)

He told Wolverine247 that he thought the visit was successful.

"It went really really well," Wohlabaugh said of his visit. "The offer was a huge surprise. I got to know Coach Harbaugh really well too."

The Wolverines also offered 2016 defensive end Marlon Davidson (Montgomery, Alabama), according to his Twitter account.

Davidson is a five-star prospect and the third-ranked strong-side defensive end in the class, per the 247 Composite ranking system.
