Welcome to this week’s Tuesday Recruiting Roundup. Michigan is looking to keep the momentum on the trail going and a big win in Madison this weekend would do well with their national perception.
Deuce Spurlock already recruiting for Michigan
Over the weekend Michigan picked up a pledge from 2022 Alabama three-star linebacker Deuce Spurlock. While he announced his commitment after game day, he was already recruiting others to join him in the class while on the sidelines according to The Michigan Insider’s Brice Marich ($).
Spurlock hit it off with 2023 top-100 athlete Nyckoles Harbor, who was on an unofficial visit. Spurlock told Marich he’s “feeling pretty good there” in regards to Harbor.
“I was talking to him and trying to get him to come to the Wolverines,” Spurlock said. I want him to go blue, but at the end of the day, it’s his decision. I’m doing what I can to get him here.”
Michigan could definitely use a 6-foot-5, 225-pound athlete who ran a 10.38 in the 100 meters as a sophomore, so they’ll take the help anywhere they can get it.
2023 four-star DL plans to visit Michigan later this season
Michigan has been focusing hard on the 2023 class with several highly touted members of the class already getting to Ann Arbor for a visit this summer and fall. One of the next blue chips to make the trip is Virginia four-star Joel Starlings, he told TMI’s Brice Marich ($).
“Oh yeah everyday,” Starlings said about Michigan’s contact with him. “I am talking to coach Nua and coach Harbaugh and sometimes coach Morgan. We’ve been talking about like how they can help me as a defensive lineman to get to the league.”
Starlings hasn’t yet visited Michigan, but wants to for the biggest game of the year against Ohio State.
“I’m heading to the game on Nov. 27 before my birthday,” said Starlings.
There are no Crystal Ball predictions yet for Starlings, who holds offers from Arizona State, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M and others.
2023 four-star CB hearing from Michigan frequently
Another target the coaching staff is in hot pursuit of is 2023 four-star defensive back Jshawn Frausto-Ramos. Coming out of powerhouse St. John Bosco in California, he spoke to TMI’s Marich about how often Michigan is contacting him ($).
“Yeah, I’ve been taking to coach Clink like every other day,” Frausto-Ramos said. “I really like him. We just talk about life past Michigan’s games.”
Despite this relationship, Frausto-Ramos says he doesn’t have plans to visit Ann Arbor finalized yet.
“I’m not sure (about visiting Michigan) as I’m still figuring out my schedule right now.”
Frausto-Ramos holds offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Louisville, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Oregon, USC and others. He seems pretty open right now with no Crystal Ball picks in yet.
