ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan hosted its first high school prospect camp of the spring on Saturday. It attracted a few hundred players, including 2020 cornerback Tevin Griffey, son of baseball Hall of Fame member Ken Griffey Jr., from Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips High School.
Brandon Brown of The Wolverine tweeted late Saturday night that Michigan gave Tevin Griffey his first scholarship offer.

Michigan director of recruiting Matt Dudek helped recruit Trey Griffey, Tevin’s older brother, to Arizona. Along with his father, mother and sister Taryn, Trey was in attendance at the camp held inside Al Glick Field House. Tevin is a 5-foot-10, 160-pound player who helped Dr. Phillips win its first Florida state title last season. He played in 13 games and made 9 tackles and 1 interception.
The Wolverines have one quarterback commitment for 2019 in Cade McNamara. While they would like to add a second quarterback for this class, they are also looking at 2020 possibilities. Tyler Van Dyke of Suffield (Conn.) Academy participated in his second Michigan camp in as many years.
Michigan has offered Van Dyke, who said there is mutual interest between him and the Wolverines. He is a 6-foot-4, 212-pound prospect who was a freshman at Suffield Academy when Michigan sophomore safety Brad Hawkins was a postgraduate player at the school.
“Coach [Jim] Harbaugh put us through some tough drills, but it was fun,” said Van Dyke. “Brad and I have a good relationship and try to keep in touch.”
Another quarterback attending the camp was Max Bredeson, a 2021 prospect from Hartland (Wis.) Arrowhead. He is the younger brother of Wolverines junior left guard Ben Bredeson and senior pitcher Jack Bredeson. Max said he plays both football and baseball.
“I originally played offensive line in fifth grade but I thought I would be in a skill position, so I stuck with it,” Max said. “My goal is to go to Michigan and play college football, but one day I’d wish to play with [Ben] at least one play. That would be awesome.”
Michigan will hold two more camps on June 18 — its Big Man camp from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET and another all-position prospect camp from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
