In case you haven’t noticed, we recently added a 2021 Football Recruiting Offer Board page under the recruiting tab in the top header, along with a bunch of other useful resources. I created this board as a way to keep track of the prospects Michigan offered throughout the 2021 cycle as I was writing the position previews and store relevant recruiting information all in one place.
Since a college team’s recruiting board is constantly changing with new offers, commitments to other schools, visits, and more, we’re introducing a new weekly series on the site. This weekly offer board update will briefly go through what information has been added to the document, so you can stay up to date with the status of prospects Michigan has offered.
Here’s what’s happened in the past week and a half since the board has been added to the site:
- Added Jay Toia to the defensive tackle board. Michigan offered Toia on February 21st, but I didn’t add him initially because he was already committed to USC. However, after the four-star said that Michigan will receive an official visit, I added him as a candidate that could be flipped.
- Added Xavier Worthy to the wide receiver board. The three-star from Fresno, California, picked up an offer from the Wolverines on February 28th.
- Added Derek Wilkins to the defensive end board. The four-star from Rancho Santa Margarita, California, received his offer on March 3rd.
After a great talk with @CoachNua and @n8crutch I am blessed and honored to say that I have received an offer from the University of Michigan! 〽️ #GoBlue @CoachJim4UM @UMichFootball @SMCHS_Football @GregBiggins @adamgorney @BrandonHuffman @HamiltonESPN pic.twitter.com/nG76qYLByb— D (@derekwilkinss) March 4, 2020
- Added Jantzen Dunn to the athlete board. The four-star from Bowling Green, Kentucky, picked up his Michigan offer on March 4th. At 6-foot-2, 178 pounds, Dunn could project to the defensive backfield in college.
- Removed Gage Wilcox from the board. The four-star tight end committed to in-state Florida on February 28th.
- Removed Keeshawn Silver from the defensive end board. The four-star prospect committed to UNC on March 3rd.
Added visit dates of 3/1/20 for these offered prospects:
- Four-star C Raheem Anderson
- Three-star OT Pat Coogan
- Three-star, OT Caleb Tiernan
- Three-star CB John Howse IV
- Three-star OT Ramier Lewis
Un-offered 2021 prospects who were also in attendance include:
