A quick programming note before we get into this week’s Offer Board Update: Given how few prospects Michigan is offering at this point in the cycle and with visits canceled until Aug. 31, there just isn’t that much news going on with 2021 prospects to warrant a weekly update.
So I’m going to switch this up into a bi-weekly format to ensure each new update has enough information to be worth your time. This will start after this week and hopefully only continue until the season starts and prospects can take visits again. Fingers crossed!
This week’s update is heavy on cornerbacks, with two targets committing to other schools and one naming Michigan in their top five. Also notable is Dallas Turner committing to Alabama. Michigan still believes he will take visits in the fall and will look to get him on campus if it is able. I don’t have high hopes flipping him from the Tide, but the coaches will keep in contact.
