2020 CB Andre Seldon Jr. commits to Wolverines
The Wolverines have secured their first defensive back in the 2020 class with a commitment from Belleville (Mich.) cornerback Andre Seldon Jr. Receiving an offer from Michigan after attending camp on Monday, Seldon nearly committed to coach Jim Harbaugh on the spot, but instead slept on it for two days and decided to make it official on Wednesday.
Chance to be Jim Harbaugh’s assistant
Michigan posted a job opening last Friday, seeking an executive assistant to the head football coach. If you have such experience, know football and longed for an opportunity to work for Jim Harbaugh, here’s your chance.
Michigan camp yields offers
Michigan hosted Big Man and All-Prospect camps Monday, and the Wolverines extended many offers, including to players in the 2019 class. The Wolverines offered 6-foot-2, 245-pound Belleville defensive end Tyrece Woods, who displayed quickness off the ball and pass-rush skills in 1-on-1s.
Wolverines can be picky at positions of depth
Land of 10’s Kevin Goheen explains why the Wolverines can be picky while recruiting certain positions, especially running back, wide receiver and safety. As Goheen writes, Michigan has such good depth at those positions that the Wolverines don’t have to jump at any prospect that simply shows interest.
