2020 5-star OT Myles Hinton includes Michigan in top 5

2020 5-star target Myles Hinton narrowed his list to five schools and Michigan is one of them.

Ilinois v Michigan

Myles Hinton, a top 2020 target for Michigan, could very well end up following his older brother to Ann Arbor.

The 5-star offensive tackle from Norcross, Georgia announced his top list of five schools, with two from the Big Ten.

The 6-foot-6, 308-pound offensive tackle is also considering Georgia, Stanford, Northwestern and Clemson. He’s currently the No. 6 overall player in the recruiting cycle, per 247Sports’ composite rankings, plus the top player at his position and in the state of Georgia.

One of Michigan’s weaknesses the last few years has been the offensive line and pass protection. If you watch his highlights below, you’ll see why Michigan and other schools want him on their offense.

Football is not the only sport in high school for Myles. He recently won the class AAA state title in discus and finished eighth in shotput.

He’s currently a 100 percent 247Sports Crystal Ball prediction to Michigan with plenty of time to decide. He has not released a timeline to announce.

Michigan is definitely picking up momentum in the south lately. The 2019 class currently has four players from Georgia, including 5-star defensive end Chris Hinton, the older brother of Myles, who is the third highest rated player in the state and No. 22 overall.
