Welcome back in to another Monday edition of our recruiting roundup. Today we’re talking about a couple players who visited Michigan over the weekend, and where U-M is now looking after a big time prospect committed elsewhere. Let’s get after it.
Progress being made with Hinton
2020 four-star offensive lineman Myles Hinton may be a Stanford commit, but that hasn’t stopped Michigan from pursuing him.
Hinton was in attendance on Saturday for Michigan’s game against Rutgers and plans on heading to another game this season, likely versus Notre Dame according to Brice Marich ($).
Marich’s source says that Michigan is making progress with Hinton and remains very interested in him, but still believes it’s a long shot for Hinton to flip from Stanford to Michigan. Obviously the one thing in Michigan’s favor is Hinton’s brother Chris plays for the Wolverines.
The 6-foot-6 320 pound recruit from Norcross, GA (Greater Atlanta Christian School) is the No. 65 overall player in the 2020 class and is the No. 7 offensive tackle. His 247 Sports scouting report says Hinton “plays with balance on contact. Engages hips effectively. Polished technically with a clean pass set and advanced hand placement. Possesses natural strength and looks like he is still maturing. Has NFL pedigree.”
Top in-state underclassman recaps visit to U-M
2022 safety Myles Rowser (Belleville, MI) visited Ann Arbor this weekend and walked away impressed with Michigan’s performance, per Brice Marich ($).
Rowser thought the defense “was on fire” and noticed “lots of smacking” and believes the offense and defense played faster and with more tempo.
Rowser’s brother is 2020 Michigan commit cornerback Andre Seldon, which may or may not give Michigan the edge in Rowser’s recruitment. Rowser has over a dozen offers from programs such as Florida, Michigan, Penn State, and Kentucky.
It’s still early on in Rowser’s recruitment but the only two crystal ball predictions so far favor the Wolverines.
Michigan’s plan with Linthicum committing to Clemson
Last week elite 2020 center Ryan Linthicum committed to Clemson, and now Michigan will have to turn their attention elsewhere at the position.
Brice Marich believes ($) Michigan will shift their focus right down the road and pursue Cass Tech’s (Detroit, MI) Raheem Anderson.
The 2021 four-star center is the No. 192 overall player in his class and the No. 2 center. Anderson’s primary recruiter has been offensive line coach Ed Warinner and all four crystal ball predictions have Anderson committing to Michigan.
Michigan always recruits Cass Tech players heavy, gaining the commitments of players like Donovan Peoples-Jones and Michael Onwenu. In fact, because of the Cass Tech connection, Onwenu and Anderson communicate with one another about the Michigan program. “I mostly talk to Big Mike, because we talk about technique and stuff like that,” Anderson said. I might ask him a few questions about his experiences at Cass, his experiences at Michigan.”
