2019 Tight End Hudson Henry
Henry was one of the first players offered this week, and for good reason. He is the top ranked tight end and the 32nd overall player in the 2019 recruiting class, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. He is also the younger brother of NFL tight end Hunter Henry.
The 6-foot-5, 225-pound four-star tight end would fit perfectly in Jim Harbaugh’s offense, and he is going to be heavily recruited moving forward because of that. Check out his junior year highlights below.
2019 Wide Receiver Treylon Burks
The four-star receiver was extended an offer on Tuesday by one of Michigan’s newest coaches — Dan Enos.
The Warren, Arkansas native is listed at 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds. He is the 37th ranked overall prospect in the 2019 class and the seventh ranked wide receiver. He doesn’t have a very high offer sheet yet, but he has been offered by Oklahoma, Ole Miss, LSU and home state school Arkansas.
Check out some highlights from his junior season below.
2019 Defensive Back Warren Burrell
Burrell is one of the many Georgia natives offered by Michigan this week. He is listed at 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds.
Although Burrell is currently just a three-star corner, his recruiting ranking will more than likely go up in the future. He has offers from top-tier programs, including Notre Dame, Alabama, Ohio State, Auburn, USC, Wisconsin and Penn State. He actually received seven offers, including Michigan’s, on Tuesday. He is a hot commodity at the moment, apparently.
2019 Defensive End Marcus Hicks
Hicks is a four-star defensive end from Wichita, Kansas, and has offers from the likes of Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Notre Dame and Texas, to name several.
Listed at 6-foot-5, 236 pounds, Hicks is a big boy lined up on the edge of the defensive line. He is currently the 300th overall prospect and the 21st ranked weakside defensive end in the 2019 class.
2019 Running Back Derrian Brown
Michigan is going after a few high-end running backs in the 2019 class, but you can never offer too many higher ranked players. That’s the case with four-star Georgia native Derrian Brown.
Listed at 5-foot-11, 174 pounds, Brown is the 142nd overall prospect and the 13th ranked running back in his class. He has offers from Auburn, Ohio State, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Wisconsin and more.
2020 Running Back Marshawn Lloyd
Lloyd is going to be one of the premier running backs of his class, as he is already listed as the ninth overall recruit and the first ranked running back in the 2020 class, according to 247Sports. Of course, these are early rankings, but still a good sign of what is to come for Lloyd.
The Maryland native is listed at 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds. His offer sheet includes Miami (FL), Maryland, Pitt, South Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia Tech, Rutgers and Boston College.
2020 Wide Receiver Deajaun McDougle
You will probably be hearing McDougle’s name quite a bit moving forward, especially if you are really into recruiting.
He isn’t ranked as of now, like most 2020 prospects, but his offer list would make him an elite player — Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State, Miami (FL), Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia, Oregon and more.
McDougle is listed at 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds. He isn’t the biggest wide receiver to grace the gridiron, but he must be a solid player if he has received offers from the best college football programs during his sophomore year.
2020 Running Back Miles Friday
The 5-foot-11, 172-pound running back from Stone Mountain, Georgia was just one of many Georgia natives offered by the Wolverines this week.
Friday does not have a recruiting ranking just yet, but he will more than likely be a top player in his class. He has offers from some of the nation’s top schools, including Alabama, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Georgia, Oregon and Florida State, to name several.
2021 Defensive End JC Latham
It was only a matter of time before Harbaugh and Co. focused in on offering some current high school freshmen.
Latham is listed at 6-foot-6 and 233 pounds. For a defensive end, that is ginormous. The Wisconsin native already has offers from Wisconsin, Iowa, Iowa State and Minnesota.
2021 Defensive Tackle Dominic Bass
Bass is from Chicago, Illinois and is listed at 6-foot-4, 250 pounds. Michigan is the second school to offer a scholarship to Bass, with Iowa State being the first.
And to end Part 1, let’s meet three 2019 four-star players and one three-star player from Hollywood, Florida who are already committed to schools and just received Michigan offers: safety Keontra Smith, wide receiver John Dunmore and athlete/cornerback Te’Cory Couch, and defensive end Cameron Williams.
Smith, who is committed to Kentucky, is listed at 5-foot-11 and 205 pounds. He is the 144th ranked overall player and the ninth rated safety in the 2019 class.
Dunmore is listed at 6-foot-2 and 172 pounds. He is the 119th rated recruit and the 22nd ranked receiver in the 2019 class. He is currently committed to Florida.
Couch is listed at 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds and is currently committed to Tennessee. He is the 241st ranked recruit and the 21st ranked athlete in the 2019 class.
Williams has been committed to Florida since last summer, so it will be interesting to see how Michigan offering him a scholarship, along with three other players from Hollywood, will change (or not change) his recruiting process. Williams is listed at 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds and is the 498th ranked overall recruit and the 29th ranked weakside defensive end in his class.
