With all the satellite camp talk and debate over the past week. It’s time to turn our attention to this weekend, where Michigan will have a busy weekend hosting many west coast prospects. With the 7-on-7 national tournament in Chicago taking place this weekend, The Wolverines will host several five-star prospects and a large group of California prospects.
2017 WR Joseph Lewis
According to 247sports’ Steve Lorenz, Michigan will host 2017 Los Angeles, CA (Hawkins) five-star WR Joseph Lewis. Lewis is the one recruit that highlights the group of recruits visiting Michigan this weekend. In terms of his recruitment, The Wolverines are currently on the outside looking in within his recruitment. However, it’s important to note that he does have a lot of interest in Michigan. This visit for the coaching staff will decide how big of a factor Michigan will play moving forward in his recruitment. USC appears to be the leader in his recruitment as of right now, with Lewis being a major California target it will be tough for the coaching staff to pull him away from the west coast.
2017 TE Matt Dotson
Dotson informed me a few days ago that he will be visiting Michigan this weekend. He recently visited Michigan several weeks ago and received an offer from the coaching staff on his visit. Well, after his recent Michigan offer, The Wolverines are looking really good for Dotson. With Dotson’s love for Jim Harbaugh and Jay Harbaugh and The Wolverines appearing to be the leader by a strong stretch. That being said, Dotson is the most likely to commit to Michigan on his visit. Furthermore, I really like Michigan’s chances going into this weekend with Dotson.
2017 WR Taariq Johnson
Per reports, 2017 Buena Park, CA (Buena Park) four-star receiver and California commit Taariq Johnson will be visiting Michigan this weekend. Johnson is another member of the large group of the 7-on-7 team that will be at Michigan. However, I don’t think there is much to this visit.
2017 OT Henry Bainivalu
According to 247sports’ Steve Lorenz, Bainivalu will be at Michigan.
2018 WR Jalen Hall
According to 247sports’ Steve Lorenz, 2018 Los Angeles, CA (Hawkins) five-star receiver Jalen Hall will also be visiting Michigan. This is somewhat of a name to watch going into his visit due to some reports I have heard. Not to mention, but Hall and Lewis are teammates at Hawkins High School.
2019 QB JT Daniels
Daniels will also be visiting Michigan this weekend. He has been a Michigan fan since he was a child and likes The Wolverines a lot. Daniels is known to be one of the best quarterbacks in his class. This visit will be a good start for The Wolverines to get on Daniels early.
Other Prospects Visiting:
2018 DB Aashari Crosswell
2018 DB Marcus Johnson
2018 DB Eli Doyle
2018 QB Brevin White
