Michigan Football Recruiting: 2016 Class Prediction 4.0

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

We are currently in a July quiet period with not much updates on the recruiting trail, but that will not stop us here from speculating, as we are ones to do.

Here's the latest class prediction for the Wolverines in 2016:

(Highlighted/italicized names indicate current commitments)

Quarterbacks (1)

4* Brandon Peters (Avon, Indiana)

Running Backs (2)

4* Matt Falcon (Southfield, Michigan)

3* Kingston Davis (Prattville, Alabama)

Fullbacks (1)

3* David Reese (Farmington, Michigan)

Wide Receivers (2)

4* Brad Hawkins (Camden, New Jersey)

4* Ahmir Mitchell (Egg Harbor City, New Jersey)

Tight Ends (2)

4* Naseir Upshur (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

3* Sean McKeon (Dudley, Massachusetts)

Offensive Tackle (3)

4* Erik Swenson (Downers Grove, Illinois)

Defensive Ends (4)

4* Ron Johnson (Camden, New Jersey)

3* Dytarious Johnson (Prattville, Alabama)

Defensive Backs (5)

3* Tony Butler (Lakewood, Ohio

3* Devin Gil (Miami, Florida)

3* Benjamin St. Juste (Montreal, Quebec)

3* Antwaine Richardson (Delray Beach, Florida)

2* Josh Metellus (Miami, Florida)

Athletes (3)

4* Chris Evans (Indianapolis, Indiana)

3* Kiante Enis (Winchester Indiana)

3* Victor Viramontes (Norco, California)


The only I feel least confident about on this list as of now is actually David Reese. It has been floated out there that he wants to play linebacker full-time and Michigan prefers him at fullback. The chance exists that he flips back to Louisville to play with teammate Desmond Fitzpatrick, who is also now off of this list for now.

Another player that has been dropped is Dele Harding. The reason for that is that it has been so quiet on him for awhile and there has been chatter that he may flip to West Virginia. So we will see what happens.
