Jordan Reid Visits Michigan
According to Steve Lorenz of Wolverine 247, Michigan hosted 3* OL Jordan Reid ($) on Tuesday. Reid is a guy we spoke to about a month ago after a solo visit to Michigan. He currently has them second on his list, as Michigan trails Florida for the top spot. Reid is from Detroit, so Michigan has had him on campus more than anybody by a landslide. I would pit this race between the wolverines and the gators, as of right now.
Deontre Thomas Will Commit April 30th, Trending The Wrong Way
After his visit during the Michigan spring game April 1st, 3* DL Deontre Thomas (OK) named Michigan his leader. He followed up on those comments with us, which you can read here, and said he was leaning towards Michigan. With that reassurance in place, and having no visits planned, it was almost certain he would be committing to Michigan. Over the weekend, Thomas headed to Nebraska, and things took a turn. Steve Lorenz of Wolverine 247 put in a crystal ball for Thomas to Nebraska, and he's rarely wrong. MnB has spoke with him on a regular basis, and have reason to believe it's a tight race that Michigan will lose, as of now.

Tuliaupupu will likely visit Michigan in the summer.
