We continue to move through the dog days of summer as recruiting news has slowed a bit for the Michigan Wolverines. A quiet period is currently ongoing and updates have not been flying out as frequently, but there have been a fair amount of storylines to come out of the last week or so.

Davis, Elliot set official visit plans

Class of 2016 offensive guard Terrance Davis (Hyattsville, Maryland) will be taking his official visit to Michigan on Nov. 28 when the Ohio State Buckeyes come to town.

Just to recap, an official visit is when a senior prospect can visit in the fall with everything paid for and provided by the university.

Many, including myself, expect Davis to be a part of the 2016 class. The four-star prospect would solidify arguably the best offensive line haul in the country during this cycle.

Another prospect that plans on taking an official to Ann Arbor this fall is four-star defensive tackle Jordan Elliott (Houston, Texas), who committed to Houston back in May.

In fact, Houston was not listed among the five schools that he is planning to take officials to, but do not put much stock into that. He is obviously from the area and knows the facilities and campus well.

No date has been set for Elliott to come to Michigan, but the chance always remains that he could be blown away by the visit. I would not call him a flip candidate at this point, but we will see what happens.

Decision coming for Bush, Butler?

Four-star 2016 linebacker Devin Bush (Miami, Florida) will reportedly make his college decision sometime in August, according to 247's Rusty Mansell.

He has a pair of teammates committed currently in Josh Metellus and Devin Gil, who have been working hard to make Bush a member of the 2016 class. It would not be a surprise to see him choose the Wolverines, though Florida State is still the favorite.

Three-star '16 cornerback Tony Butler (Lakewood, Ohio) also says that his decision should come fairly soon, according to his Twitter account.

After decommitting from Pittsburgh recently, Michigan very well may be at the top of his list. We will know shortly.

Michigan makes top eight for Cuffee

Four-star 2016 cornerback Eric Cuffee (Waco, Texas) released his top eight schools recently, where Michigan made the cut.

I do not see a scenario where Cuffee leaves the state of Texas, but Michigan still has a fighter's chance.

That will do it for today. Check back in Friday for the latest in Michigan football recruiting news and more.
