From Portage Northern.
This week's scouting report is on Salt Lake City (UT) Brighton linebacker Osa Masina, who was Michigan's first linebacker offer in the class of 2015. His 247 Sports Crystal Ball is point 90% to Utah because of his older brother there, but recruiting gurus are insistent that Michigan still has a strong chance.
This week's scouting report is on Lawrenceville (NJ) Lawrenceville Prep offensive tackle Grant Newsome. I've been a little surprised that he hasn't been mentioned around here (and other places in the interwebs) much because at this point, he's probably the most likely 2015 lineman to commit to Michigan. Penn State and Ohio State have done a good job recruiting the previous guy with that title, Pittsburgh (PA) Baldwin's Sterling Jenkins. Newsome is a pretty solid prospect in his own right.
This week's scouting report is on Detroit (MI) Cass Tech running Michael Weber, whose interest in Michigan has been reignited after a) the hiring of Doug Nussmeier and b) the decommitment of Damien Harris. I know a lot of people have reservations about Cass Tech players because they haven't panned out as well as we would have hoped (Cissoko, Campbell, Teric Jones, etc.), but regardless, Weber looks like a solid prospect.
This week's scouting report is on Jersey City (NJ) St. Peter's Prep cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick, a 247 Composite 5-star and the #4 cornerback in the 2015 class. He could play a variety of positions at the next level.
This week's scouting report is on Detroit (MI) King linebacker Tyriq Thompson, and we all know he's the son of former Michigan safety Clarence Thompson. ESPN is silly if they think this kid can play safety, but I've come to expect that from ESPN. The Worldwide Leader always seems to be playing catch-up when it comes to recruiting.
This week's scouting report is on the newly offered Keisean Lucier-South from Orange (CA) Lutheran. For whatever reason, I feel like he's the Michigan Corner of the Internet's third favorite (or most desired?) player in the class, behind George Campbell and Damien Harris. I guess that's what happens when a top 100 player from California says Michigan is his "dream school."
