While last week saw the Michigan coaches send out a bunch of new offers to 2021 prospects, this week’s dispersion was much smaller as they focused more on 2022 prospects. The board thinned out some with a handful of players that Michigan wasn’t recruiting very hard committing to other schools. The one exception is Avante Dickerson, who surprisingly committed to Minnesota over the in-state Huskers and Michigan, who was making a late push that will still continue even after his commitment.
Added Jamier Johnson to the board. The four-star cornerback from Pasadena, California received his offer from Michigan on April 16.
