Welcome back to another Recruiting Roundup! We are foscusing today on what the Michigan Wolverines have done since the decommitment of 2022 three-star wide receiver Tayshawn Trent. They didn’t waste any time, so neither will I. Let’s get right to it.

U-M offers East Carolina WR commit

Michigan was quick to make a move on offering a different receiver prospect in the 2022 class after Trent’s announcement on Tuesday. Just a few hours after that, three-star Kaleb Webb reported on his Twitter account he received an offer from Michigan.

The 6-foot-2.5, 185-pounder from Powder Springs, Georgia has been committed to East Carolina since June. Since that commitment, he has received other offers from Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisville, Ole Miss, South Carolina and others.

He has taken a couple visits since his commitment — to Tennessee and Louisville — and according to The Michigan Insider’s Steve Lorenz ($), Webb will also officially visit Michigan next weekend for the game against Indiana, which is incredibly fast work by the Wolverine coaching staff to get him on campus. This is a huge step in the right direction, so we’ll see coming out of that visit how interested he really is in the program moving forward.

Along with football, Webb also runs track. He ran a verified 10.91 100-meter dash back in April.

You can check out his midseason highlight tape below and see that speed on display on the gridiron. What do you think of him as a prospect? Be sure to chime in down in the comments section.

2022 three-star WR in constant contact with U-M

If Webb isn’t the solution — or the only solution — to Michigan losing Trent to decommitment, maybe 2022 three-star Notre Dame commit Amorion Walker is.

The 6-foot-4, 175-pounder from Louisiana has been a Notre Dame verbal commitment since March, but has visited Ann Arbor on a couple occasions, the most recent being for the Maize Out victory against Washington.

The Michigan Insider’s Sam Webb ($) caught up with Walker this past week to get the latest in his ongoing recruitment, and how head coach Jim Harbaugh has been all over this one.

“We can talk about anything,” Walker said of Harbaugh. “He will call me and ask me what I did in class today. Some regular stuff. We talk just about every day. If I’m not calling him, he’s calling me. So, it’s just a good relationship we’ve got.”

Walker went as far to say he and Harbaugh talk “every day” and that he’s also in constant contact with Steve Clinscale and Josh Gattis, two of Michigan’s best recruiters. But at the end of the day, the decision, which he said will come sooner rather than later, will ultimately be a family decision.

“Definitely a family decision,” Walker said. “I feel like we’ve been putting it to the side and focusing on this season right here. It’s big in this town. We’ve got all our guys. Like I said, we all came our freshman year and made it here. We’ve been really focusing on that state championship. But (the choice between Notre Dame and Michigan) is definitely going to be a family decision where we sit down and just make it final one day.”

This one may be coming to an end soon. At the very latest, it will be done in December for the early signing period.
