TomVH: Recruiting Potent Potables 5/5

TomVH: Recruiting Potent Potables 5/5

Submitted by TomVH on May 5th, 2010 at 7:49 PM

Updates for the week of 5/5:

Jajuan Story

6'3, 190 lbs. 

Wide Receiver

 Brooksville, FL 

Jajuan recently told me that Michigan is in his early top ten. It's pretty early for him, so he doesn't have anything official yet. When asked if he was going to try to visit Michigan, this was his response.

 

"I definitely want to try to make it up to Michigan. I might have to use an official to get up there. I like them, though, so we'll see." 

As always, the video of good plays:

 

Kevin McReynolds

6'2, 281 lbs.

Defensive Tackle

Washington, D.C.

McReynolds is easily one of the top defensive tackles in the country, and has to be one of the hardest working prospects. He has over 19 offers, and I would expect that list to continue to grow. Although Michigan has not offered yet, they were in town to see Kevin practice today, as you can see by his tweet below.

Michigan will most likely offer McReynolds soon, and I have a feeling that they would receive a visit from the DC native. He had previously told me that if Michigan offers, they would be a school to make his list.

Ryan Griffin

5'9, 170 lbs.

Safety, Corner

Ypsilanti, MI

Ryan is right in Michigan's backyard, but there must be a tall fence, because he hasn't heard too much from his neighbors. Griffin told me that he's starting to hear a lot from some big name schools like Tennessee, Alabama, Nebraska, Wisonsin, UCLA, and others. Despite having any offers yet, his recruitment should start picking up soon. 

"I plan on traveling with Raw Talent this summer, which I think has Michigan on the schedule. If my schedule allows me to go to one of their one day camps, then I will."

Raw Talent is a group that travels to various camps on the east and west coast, and is based out of Ohio. Doran Grant will be another member of the Raw Talent group. His highlight video can be seen here.

Chris Wormley

6'4, 225 lbs.

Defensive End

Toledo, OH

Wormley is a prospect for the 2012 class, but is already being talked about as one of the best players in Ohio. His size is an instant standout, since he's only a sophomore. I asked Chris about his feelings towards Michigan, and here's his response.

"Michigan is my favorite right now, definitely. There are some other schools like Ohio State and Cincinnati that have been staying in touch. I'd like to hear more from Michigan soon. I think I'll probably end up at Michigan, but those other schools could make a push."

It's probably going to be a little while before we hear anything new, but Wormley is one to keep an eye on. 

Giorgio Newberry

6'6, 255 lbs.

Defensive End/Tackle

Fort Pierce, FL

Giorgio is one of the better defensive line prospects out there, and he's also being recruited by some schools for offensive line. His versatility makes him special, but his size makes everything come together for him. With the height and weight he carries, Newberry still reports a 4.7 time in the 40. Good news here is that Rod Smith will be at Fort Pierce to watch Giorgio practice on Friday. Michigan is recruiting Newberry for the defensive side of the ball, but would obviously let him play where ever he fits best. It's too early for top lists, but he told me that he has definite interest in Michigan. His film is inside this link.

Nick Waisome

5'10, 171 lbs.

Cornerback

Groveland, FL

Nick Waisome has offers from pretty much everywhere, including Arizona, Florida, Arkansas, Florida State, North Carolina, and Stanford among others. Waisome received a visit from Coach Rod Smith today. Not only does Nick have ideal size, but he also boasts a blazing 40 time of 4.44. I asked Nick if he was going to make a visit up to Michigan, and he said he thinks he will, but he's not sure. It's difficult for the prospects from Florida to commit to a trip, because of cost and time. He hasn't been talked about a lot here, but we might hear his name more. I have a feeling he might stick close to home, but here's his highlight tape, as well.

Enough Already OSU!!! They already got one of the best DE in the country from Toledo Whitmer in their 2011 class. Now they are going after his teammate DE Chris Wormley (6'6 250) for their 2012 recruiting class.

He grew up a Wolverine but RR needs to get on this kid fast because everyone else in the country will be on him soon enough!!
