It was a slow weekend for Michigan recruiting.
No one reportedly visited campus. The only visitor who planned to be in Ann Arbor, Mich., was Cheshire (Conn.) 3-star (247Sports Composite) CB Brandon Sebastian. For uncertain reasons, the visit was canceled – although it’s expected to be rescheduled.
Who received an in-home visit?
Michigan commit James Hudson received an in-home visit from defensive line coach Greg Mattison. Hudson – the 4-star DE prospect from Toledo, Ohio – said the visit went well. His commitment is firm.
Tyrone Wheatley reportedly took another job
Michigan’s second-best recruiter, behind linebackers coach Chris Partridge, reportedly took a job with the Jacksonville Jaguars late Saturday night, according to Sporting News. Running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley is the No. 6 recruiter in the country, according to 247Sports.
Here is a story on why Wheatley is so important to Michigan’s recruiting efforts, which was published about three hours before reports surfaced about his possible departure for the NFL.
And that’s about all that happened this weekend. Jim Harbaugh had his seventh child, so that has a lot to do with why things were slow, and a reason the volume of in-home visits were so low.
There are no scheduled official visits next week. Michigan will take in-home visits with some uncommitted prospects next week, among them is the last offensive line target left: Highland Springs (Va.) 3-star OT Mekhi Becton.
