Michigan's recent run of commits continues with OH TE Erick All, who's currently more in the Big WR mold:

Listed at 225, All is a 3* ranked around 500th on the composite. Recent FSU and Notre Dame offers may indicate he's going to get a bump in the near future as the sites catch up... or nah. That's how it goes these days. All and OH S Joey Velazquez will get full Hello posts in the near future.

Michigan's second 2020 commit came quick on the heels of their first, and in a similar situation: a camp offer to a life-long Michigan fan who pulled the trigger. In Andre Seldon's case it took him a couple of days to make it official, but once the offer was out it was pretty much over.

Seldon is a very different kind of cornerback than the guys Michigan piled into their 2018 class. Those guys are 6'2" fade annihilators to a man; Seldon is listed at 5'9", 160 and might be a little smaller than that. But dude has been in the hip pocket of everyone in camps this spring and put down a couple of 4.3 40s at Michigan's camp, making him hard to overlook even if he's literally easy to overlook.

GURU RATINGS

247 ESPN Rivals Composite
3*, #351 overall
#24 CB, #8 MI
NR 3*, NR overall
#26 CB
3*, #416 overall
#29 CB, #11 MI

Both sites that have ranked Seldon have him in the 3.5 star range. Given his camp performances, which are detailed after the jump, those rankings are conservative early takes based on his size. If he's really 5'9" and grows an inch or two—very possible for rising juniors—he could have significant upward mobility. If he's really 5'7" and not sprouting further his size will put a hard cap on his rankings around about where they are now.

Does this warrant the "commits come in seemingly endless waves" yet or do we need another? Uh, anyway:

Velazquez is a 2019 safety sort who Michigan plans to play at viper, per Sam Webb, and was an Ohio State baseball commit. He evidently plans to play both sports at Michigan, which hasn't happened in quite a while.

As a football recruit, Velazquez is... nondescript, slotting in just inside the top 1000 on the composite and listing offers from Cincinnati and Indiana. But Khaleke Hudson wasn't even a consensus four star despite his rim-rattling dunk-tape; Michigan's requirements for viper often see them recruit guys the recruiting industry considers marginal tweeners.

More detail in a bit.

Purdue is mad! Other people are chastized for madness! Basketball scheduling makes sense! The porpoises are our enemy! Jack Hughes is not happening, your author is going to go weep in a closet! 

Michigan's first 2020 commit is a speedy wide receiver out of Ohio who has a jugs machine and the videos to prove it. 

Michigan gets a 2020 camp commit from cornerback/slot ninja prospect out of Belleville that people have known about for quite some time.

Michigan has its first commit of the 2020 class, a 6'1" receiver out of Columbus.
