TomVH: Weekend Visitors, March 19th

Submitted by TomVH on March 17th, 2011 at 12:06 PM

This weekend is one of the first big visit weekends for the Michigan coaches. I've confirmed a number of big prospects so far, and as usual this list will continue to change as we get closer to the weekend.

  • Visiting Today - Ohio OL Caleb Stacey (6'4", 275 lbs): No offer yet, but hoping to get one soon.  ***Michigan offered Caleb on his visit.

March 19th

  • Ohio OL Kyle Dodson (6'6", 315 lbs): Michigan has made a lot of ground up with Dodson. He's very interested in Michigan.
  • Mass LB Camren Williams (6'2", 215 lbs): Making his decision in June so this visit will be big for Michigan.
  • Mass ATH Armani Reeves (5'11", 185 lbs): Teammate of Camren Williams, very excited about the visit.
  • Michigan LB Royce Jenkins-Stone (6'2", 215 lbs): This is good for Michigan to get Royce back on campus. He's seen his recruitment take off offer-wise and Michigan needs to solidify their position.
  • Michigan LB James Ross (6'0", 210 lbs): Same deal with Royce, this is great for Michigan to get James back up on campus.
  • Michigan DB Terry Richardson (5'9", 160 lbs): Michigan has a lot of work to do with Terry so any type of visit is a good one.
  • Michigan OL/DL Kelby Latta (6'4", 295 lbs): Michigan's new coaches have sparked some serious interest from Latta. Before the hire he was very high on Wisconsin, but the new coaches are giving Michigan a chance.
  • Ohio DE Pharaoh Brown (6'6", 260 lbs): It will be good to get Brown on campus this early. There's limited spots in Ohio State's class for defensive ends and Brown could end up being a key prospect down the road.
  • Michigan OL Ben Braden (6'7", 285 lbs): I reported earlier in the week that Braden had made a trip up to Michigan this past Sunday, and he was offered on that trip. Braden may be coming up this weekend, or it could be next weekend as well. 
  • Illinois DT Vontrell Williams (6'2", 265 lbs): No offer yet, but hoping to get one.

Not Coming

  • Ohio TE AJ Williams (6'6", 260 lbs): Williams has tried to schedule a visit for the past two weekends, but it looks like the 26th will end up the date he'll make it in.

Thanks Tom! Looks like a real solid list of visitors this weekend. Like it was already echoed earlier, its especially great to hear the trio will on campus. Now its time for Hoke and Mattison to work their magic!

Tom-- Thanks for the update!    Any word on how things are going with Chris Wormley?   It seems like we were moving back into the lead, but wasn't sure when he was coming up for a visit.   Hopefully, we can get him into the fold soon.

and properly neg me if I got this wrong, but Sam Webb was talking about Wormley the other day on WTKA.  He said Chris has been upfront about Michigan and Ohio State being in the lead, but no real leanings.  His family is solidly Blue, and his mother has openly said she hopes he goes to M (but supports her boy either way). 

Sam's show is so great, but the reception over near Birmingham is frustratingly poor.

Looks like a huge weekend! If Braden visits this weekend, I think he commits. Love locking up those instaters, hopefully Royce, James and Terry start leaning towards Michigan again.

I really hope that we can get some of these guys to commit sooner rather than later. It would be the greatest weekend in a very long time if we were to get RJS, Ross, Richardson and beat Tennessee and Duke. A guy can dream right?
