The Michigan Class of 2018 includes 15 committed players, and there are four committed to the Class of 2019. There’s a lot of hype surrounding players during the recruiting season, when they go to camps and special events such as Nike’s The Opening.
Where these players really shine, though, is on Friday nights for their high school teams. That’s where they put all those camp drills to good use. Land of 10 brings you a roundup of how some of these future Wolverines fared on the field last weekend.
Joe Milton, QB, Olympia (Fla.)
Olympia lost to Orlando Dr. Phillips 31-10, but 4-star 2018 commit Joe Milton showed off his arm and ability to deliver under pressure with a long touchdown pass to teammate Jordan Underwood.
