With the 2016 class starting to take shape for Michigan after a busy week or so of commitments, a pair of defensive targets took to Twitter to trim their list of schools.

On Friday evening, defensive end Julian Okwara (Charlotte, North Carolina) released a top five of Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame and Ole Miss, in alphabetical order.

Okwara is a four-star prospect and the 11th-ranked weak side defensive end in the class, per the 247 Composite. 247's Crystal Ball has Notre Dame as the clear leader right now.

Linebacker Caleb Kelly (Fresno, California) released his top ten schools on Saturday morning with California, Notre Dame, Alabama, USC, UCLA, Oklahoma, Florida State, Oregon, Michigan and LSU in no order.

Kelly is a five-star prospect and the third-ranked outside linebacker in the class, per the 247 Composite. The Crystal Ball has Oklahoma as the favorite here.
