It has been a relatively slow week on the recruiting trail, but class of 2016 wide receiver Brad Hawkins (Camden, New Jersey) will make his long-awaited college choice on Friday afternoon.

Hawkins is a four-star prospect and the 38th-ranked wide receiver in the class, according to 247's Composite Ranking. He was offered by Brady Hoke's coaching staff back in May 2014, but it was not until recently under Jim Harbaugh and company that the pursuit of him began to heat up.

He has been on campus since Harbaugh was hired and Jedd Fisch and Jay Harbaugh have been staying in contact with him on the trail.

Hawkins has plenty of connections to the program with New Jersey becoming one of Michigan football's newest pipelines. Last week 2016 defensive end Ron Johnson, a teammate of his, committed to the Wolverines.

He will be choosing from five schools, as noted in a tweet from earlier this week.

Of the above schools, this will come down to Michigan and South Carolina with the Wolverines as the clear frontrunner. Over 80 percent of the picks on the 247 Crystal Ball, including one I submitted, have Hawkins donning the maize and blue.
