Anthony Kay, who committed to Michigan as a preferred walk-on, has told Maize n Brew that he is trying to get two West Bloomfield High School players in conversation with Michigan coaches. He is trying to bring in 2017 three-star running back Davion Johnson and Garrett Winn, a 2017 two-star running back and wide receiver, to the program.

"I have been trying to get three-star West Bloomfield High School running back Davion Johnson in contact with some of the coaches," Kay said. "Also, I have been recruiting West Bloomfield High School running back and wide receiver Garrett Winn. I have been talking up the program and the entire coaching staff."

Johnson has an offer from Ball State, Central Michigan, Iowa State, Miami (OH), Ohio, Syracuse, Toledo and Western Michigan. Meanwhile, Winn has offers to play for Central Michigan and Columbia.

"I think that they can make an impact," Kay, who is a 2016 graduate, said." They both have very good work ethics and high football IQs. Both of their playing styles would fit Michigan's offense perfectly."

As for why he decided to play for Michigan, Kay mentioned, "The combination of elite athletics and prestigious academics that the University offers is unlike any other school in the country. I also feel that coach Jim Harbaugh develops players very well and prepares them for the future."

Johnson and Winn are two players that have slipped under the radar and Michigan has the chance to capitalize.
