Michigan Football Recruiting Update (5/19/2011)

Terry RichardsonRecruiting continues to stay hot for the Wolverines with the commit of Detroit, MI cornerback Terry Richardson. The Cass Tech Technician is the next in line of undersized, but very gifted corners to commit to Michigan. Richardson has very good hips and a nice back pedal. He’ll need a little bulking up, but has the skill set to be a good player. Terry picked Michigan over Alabama, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State and USC.

New Offers

Devan Bogard (S) – 6’1”  180 lbs. Cleveland, OH.

Drae Bowles (WR) – 6’1”  205 lbs. Jackson, TN.

Faith Ekakitie (DT/SDE) – 6’3”  275 lbs. Lake Forest, IL

Allen Gant (S) – 6’2”  205 lbs. Sylavania, OH. Legacy recruit.

Eli Harold (WDE) – 6’3”  220 lbs. Virginia Beach, VA.

Will Hines (CB/S) – 6’1”  175 lbs. Michigan will be a factor here.

Kent Taylor (TE) – 6’5”  215 lbs. Land O’ Lakes, FL. This is an interesting offer to me. With two tweener tight ends in the fold (Funchess – could split out wide. Williams – huge kid who might out grow the position), is Michigan now looking for a “true” tight end for this class? And what does this mean for Ron Thompson?Jarron Jones
