Welcome to the month of June, which has always been a huge recruiting month for Michigan under Jim Harbaugh. Whether it be satellite camps or official visits, there’s always plenty going on to kick off the summer, and this year is no different.
Recently, there have been several prospects who have confirmed they will be on campus in June, so let’s see who the latest names visiting soon are.
4-star CB Ryan Watts
Given the dire state of Michigan’s cornerback recruiting board, hosting Ryan Watts, who is currently committed to Oklahoma, is a big development. Watts was a coveted target before he gave his pledge to the Sooners in April, but the Michigan staff has clearly kept up the pressure.
According to The Michigan Insider’s Steve Lorenz, Watts will be visiting this weekend ($). He hails from Little Elm, Texas and is ranked the No. 286 prospect in the country and 24th at his position.
4-star TE Theo Johnson
TMI’s Sam Webb revealed coaches have been pushing really hard for Candian prospect Theo Johnson lately ($).
This has caused Johnson to schedule an unofficial visit for Michigan’s big recruiting weekend on June 21. He’ll be taking an official to Iowa this weekend and mentioned wanting to take officials to his other top schools, Penn State and Georgia, during the season.
This visit to Michigan being an unofficial leaves open the possibility of Johnson returning for a game in the fall without restriction, which would be beneficial since he says he wants to decide by the end of October.
4-star RB Blake Corum
Joining Johnson — and several other top targets — on June 21 will be Michigan’s top target at the running back position in Blake Corum, according to TMI’s Lorenz ($). Unlike Johnson, this will be Corum’s official visit.
His top four includes Michigan, USC, LSU and Kentucky, but the Wolverines have 100 percent of the crystal ball predictions. Michigan could add its fourth member of St. Frances Academy in its 2020 class that weekend.
4-star S Malcolm Greene
Michigan has been pursuing Virginia hard this cycle, and one of its best chances at landing a player from the state lies with safety Malcolm Greene.
TMI’s Lorenz has confirmed Greene will also be in Ann Arbor on June 21 for a visit ($). It’s unclear right now if it will be an official or unofficial, but Lorenz says he believes it will be the former.
There are no crystal ball picks for the No. 23 safety in the country, although the consensus is he’s considering Michigan and Clemson the most heavily. Clemson may not have room for him in its class, though, which could benefit the good guys here.
As you can tell, the visitors list for June just keeps growing and growing. Expect to see a few more commitments for the 2020 class coming out of this month, so make sure to keep following Maize n Brew for your latest recruiting updates!
