Michigan Makes Top List for Benjamin, Allen

2017 Four-star RB Eno Benjamin and 2018 five-star DB Derrik Allen narrowed down their potential college choices over the weekend, with Benjamin including Michigan in his Top Six and Allen including Michigan in his Top Ten. Benjamin, the former Iowa Hawkeyes commit, intends to announce his commitment at the US Army All-American Bowl in early January, while Allen has not given a timetable on his decision.

Michigan Targets, Commits Named to UA All-America Game

A large number of Michigan targets and commits were named to the Under Armour All-America Game Friday, including commits Jaylen Kelly-Powell (Four-star DB), Luiji Vilain (Four-star DE), and Kai-Leon Herbert (Four-star OT) and targets Drew Singleton (Four-star OLB) and Alex Leatherwood (Five-star OT).

High School Season Officially Wraps Up

The high school football season officially ended over the weekend, leaving nine wolverine commits with new hardware to display before they arrive in Ann Arbor.

All eyes are on the remaining targets now as All-American games approach and National Signing Day gets even closer.

Dead Period Begins

Coaches will no longer be able to make in-person contact with recruits starting Monday, December 12th until January 12th. Recruits can still communicate over the phone or text message, but in-person visits, both on and off campus, are prohibited. Many targets are scheduled to announce their commitments over the next month, but coaches will have to rely on electronic communication to make the final push in their recruiting efforts.
