Michigan's new staff under Jim Harbaugh has already shown they are one of the hardest working staffs in the country, and that continued this week on the recruiting trail with a busy week of scholarship offers.

Let's start with the most interesting one of the week: eighth-grade wide receiver Blake Hinson out of Florida.

Eighth grade. Class of 2019. Interesting.

Michigan is not the only school that has shown interest, though. Hinson, 6-foot-5, 205 pounds, also has offers from Florida, Miami and North Carolina.

Hinson spoke to The Daytona Beach News Journal about the offer:

"You can never say (getting an offer) gets old," he said. "It's a different school, a different tradition every time. It's just fun to know who wants you to play for their squad."

The next batch of offers out to 2016 prospects started with Jay Jay McCargo (Arlington, Virginia), a three-star offensive lineman who recently committed to North Carolina.

Michigan also offered 2016 defensive tackle Keyshon Camp (Lakeland, Florida), according to his Twitter account.

Camp, who is a high school teammate of 2015 defensive end signee Reuben Jones, is a four-star prospect and the 20th ranked defensive tackle in the class, per the 247 Composite.

On to 2017, where the Wolverines extended an offer to five-star offensive tackle Austin Jackson (Phoenix, Arizona), according to Rivals.com's Blair Angulo.

Jackson is the fifth-ranked offensive tackle in the class, per the 247 Composite.

Michigan also offered a 2017 in-state athlete in the form of Allen Stritzinger (Warren, Michigan), who can play either wide receiver or cornerback. The offer was first reported by Scout's Sam Webb.

Last but not least, the staff extended a pair of 2018 offers, as well.

The first went out to wide receiver Will Mallory, who is the son of former Michigan linebacker Mike Mallory. The offer was first reported by Scout's Corey Bender.

Michigan also offered quarterback Joey Gatewood (Jacksonville, Florida), according to his Twitter account.

That'll do it for Friday. Check back Monday for the latest roundup of Michigan football recruiting news.
