Happy Friday, and welcome to another Michigan Recruiting Roundup!
The Wolverines had a few visitors recently, so let’s update you on how those visits went and what those recruits have on their schedule moving forward.
In-state 3-star recaps U-M visit
Muskegon athlete Cameron Martinez is someone in the 2020 class you should be familiar with already if you have been following our recruiting roundups, or just recruiting in general. He visited Ann Arbor last weekend and explained to me what went on.
“It was good,” Martinez told Maize n Brew. “Took a tour, talked to some of the coaches and then watched the practice.
“(The offense) looked good. They got a lot of good players.”
Martinez is being recruited as a “receiver trying to make plays,” and as a dual-threat quarterback and the reigning Michigan Player of the Year, he can certainly do just that.
He now plans on visiting Ohio State today. During the first week of April, he will visit Northwestern, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Iowa State, Purdue and Indiana. He will decide “either before the season or after if it ends up taking that long,” according to Martinez.
I don’t anticipate this recruitment ending any time soon, but we will be sure to provide another update after his early April recruiting tour.
Quick update on in-state 3-star WR
2020 3-star wide receiver Maliq Carr has been another hot topic around these parts over the last couple months. The 6-foot-6, 230-pounder from Oak Park visited Michigan this past weekend, as well,
“Good,” Carr told Maize n Brew about his visit. “Watching practice and hooping.”
Carr has said he wants to commit on his birthday — Oct. 11 — and stayed firm with that date, saying there is no chance he will move up his commitment date.
He also said he won’t be visiting Michigan again anytime soon, after visiting Michigan several times over the last month. He will, however, be visiting Texas A&M April 12.
Multiple crystal balls have been put in for Carr to go to Michigan, and I would place one on Michigan if I had one. He seems very interested in what his role would be at Michigan and has glowing reviews of offensive coordinator Josh Gattis. We will see if he ends up keeping his commitment date, but I still wouldn’t be shocked to see him move it up.
Ohio DE recaps ‘great’ visit to U-M
Unlike Martinez and Carr, a name we haven’t talked much about is 2020 defensive end Ty Hamilton.
The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder from Pickerington, Ohio has a growing list of offers, including Michigan, West Virginia, Indiana, Minnesota and more. He visited Ann Arbor last weekend, and told The Michigan Insider’s Brice Marich ($) all about it.
“The visit went great,” Hamilton said. “I got to get one on one time with coach Brown and coach Nua at the beginning, watch practice, then I went to the academic part of the building for a presentation, and lastly I spoke to coach Harbaugh.
“I think what stood out the most was the fact of Michigan expanding their creativity by traveling outside the country every year. Yeah, I would like to do it. It would be a great experience for me and I haven’t been outside the country.”
Hamilton admitted Michigan is high on his list, and he plans to visit again during the summer. He also will visit Penn State in the near future, too.
He doesn’t have a composite score just yet, but is ranked as a 3-star on 247Sports.
That’s all for this week! Come back on Monday for more recruiting news.
