It’s the offseason, but recruiting never stops in Ann Arbor, Mich., where Jim Harbaugh and his Michigan Wolverines are continuing to build their 2018 class. Check Land of 10 daily for updates from the Wolverines recruiting trail.
St. Louis athlete Isaiah Williams gets early Crystal Ball to Michigan
Class of 2019 athlete Isaiah Williams from St. Louis Trinity Catholic had an early 247Sports Crystal Ball come in on Thursday afternoon, and it came from one of the industry’s very best.
247Sports director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong gave Williams his first prediction since last summer, and he put in a Crystal ball for the Wolverines.
Wiltfong notes in his post here that new Wolverines wide receivers coach Joe Hastings has been hard on the recruiting trail, thus why Michigan leads early for the 2019 recruit.
There are still no rankings for the 2019 class this early on, but for a bit of perspective, Williams already has 19 offers, including from the likes of Iowa, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Texas and Wisconsin.
Though he plays quarterback in high school, Williams will more than likely be a receiver in college.
Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep 4-star DT Tyler Friday to make a return visit to Michigan
According to Wolverine247, Top 100 DT Tyler Friday out of Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep will be taking a return visit to Ann Arbor on March 26.
The Wolverines are now seen as having an edge on the 4-star prospect and nation’s No. 2 defensive tackle in 2018.
According to the 247Sports Crystal Ball, Michigan has an 80-percent edge to land Friday (receiving 4 of 5 projections so far), with in-state Rutgers getting the other Crystal Ball.
The Wolverines’ already-strong pipeline in New Jersey grew stronger in the 2017 class when the Wolverines landed the commitments of OLB Drew Singleton (Paramus Catholic) and C Cesar Ruiz, a Camden native who attended IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., for his senior season.
Michigan has a very good shot to extend its streak inside the Garden State in the 2018 class, with Friday possibly being the centerpiece of New Jersey’s future Wolverines.
247Sports rates Friday the No. 39 overall prospect in the country, the No. 2 DT prospect and the No. 1 prospect in New Jersey for his class.
Though we don’t expect him to make his decision during his visit later this month, it isn’t entirely out of the realm of possibility. A summer decision sounds most likely.
